Rome Knows Nothing
I don't own the base game and I was late to the party on the KS.
I see that they've offered late pledges via the backerkit and I'm convinced that the Jarl box and playmat are a great value, even paying USD and shipping (I'm in Canada). I love Vikings and checked out the game on Tabletop so I'm fairly convinced this will make it to the table a few times at the very least.
Am I cheap/crazy for holding out hope on a local deal on the base game, especially when the expansions hit the market? Or should I just pick up the Odin?
I would look and try to find a deal...if you can't, then go with the Odin.
