I'd prefer to back the upcomming kickstarter to get a copy of the base game also, but if it is months off and has no exclusives (for the completionist in me) I may be forced to buy the recently released reprint.

Anyone have any input?

I am impatient, I got the base game already. I doubt the base game will have exclusives in the KS. I also like to explore a base game a bit before I jump into expansions.

Selfishly I vote for you to wait for the KS hoping that the additional $$ you pledge for the base game helps get to stretch goals. devil

Had a similar discussion with friends over the weekend, myself and at least one other both want this game, trying to decide to do it now or later, during the KS. Not terribly concerned with exclusives or anything like that, but I am curious about what stretch goals there may be, and cost/price, too, for that matter.

One enterprising seller had this on Amazon for $82 for the longest time, not a price I was willing to pay for this game. But I am a) very interested in the game and b) want to support the designer. Not sure if the best way to do that would be to buy now or wait. On the fence, leaning towards waiting to see what the next campaign looks like.

I HIGHLY recommend getting the base game now and playing the SHblankT out of it in its original form. The expansion changes your focus a bit from character development to character preparation.

As far as being a completionist, I've seen people posting pics and it looks like you should get the Cursed Ring promo card if you order directly from Thunderworks (Keith is on BGG--he should be able to confirm this), as well as being able to get the Frogkin promo for $6. That will get you caught up with me.

I don't think the designer does any KS exclusives, so you should be OK. The retail version of the base is the same as the KS. There is a promo race available both from the producer as well as the BGG store. There is also one promo card that came out later and has been available in various reviewer new season KSs like the Dice Tower and Man vs Meeple. There will very likely be lots of people selling/trading that promo when those KSs fulfill and it may well end up at the BGG store as well.

I couldn't wait for the KS, so I got one of the 2nd ed ones. I missed the first run by a couple days (in fact, I had one on order, but cancelled it for a cheaper one that ended up not being available). I am really jonesing to play it and am constantly checking the tracking info, hoping it makes it for my game day on Saturday!

Get one now while you can, unless you can talk your buddy into getting it, then you can wait for the bundle, save money, and play his! devil

FWIW, I am not planning on the expansion KS having any KS exclusives. Definitely nothing exclusive for the add on base game copies.

I say pick it up now and enjoy it.

Is this game available anywhere in Europe? I searched everywhere I can possibly think of and can't find copy...

It is just hitting stores in US, Keith said it would be available in Europe. I would keep looking. Seems silly, but it sounded like it went China->US->Europe.

Thanks guys. I really appreciate the input. I've purchased and am eagerly awaiting the KS.

Well done Keith, this is an amazing accomplishment, especially for us old-school RPers who spent hours upon hours rolling characters (I spent more time in character creation on some games than I did in the rest of the game... sad but true).

I've received reports of people finding it on store shelves in Europe.

I'm hoping one of the kickstarter goals is cardboard initiative tokens that you can use to replace the initiative cards. Those initiative cards get moved around a lot and I think cardboard tokens would hold up better over the long haul.

We put our colored scoring cubes on the initiative cards to mark who took which. It is so much simpler and doesn't wear out the cards.

Any European-based online retailer that has this in stock? It's sold out everywhere I look.

I hope there are more reprints coming before the KS shipping date. I don't think I can wait until 2018 to play this!

There is a 3rd print run of the base game underway which is almost double the size of the 2nd print run. Expect it by end of June or early July.

Will the (printed) German rules be included in this 3rd print run as well?
