I have only ks'd 2 other games over the years, and I am thinking of ks'g Tricorne. How reliable has Compass Games been in earlier ks projects? Don't want to assume the worst, but I have no reference point.

I might be wrong but I get the impression that this is their first go at Kick Starter.

I also believe this is their first Kickstarter. However, Compass Games has been in existence for a number of years and have successfully published a number of hex/chit wargames. You can check them out here: https://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgamepublisher/3929/compas...

This is their first Kick Starter. Compass has always been reliable on publishing their games and also their magazine. I don't think there will be a big delay on this one. I pre-ordered Tricorne before it went on Kick Starter, and I am expecting it to come out on time or within a few weeks of the target publication date.

Ok, thanks.
I suppose I can always help their first ks be more successful then.

I have no doubt that this game will get delivered.

The KS is being run as a pre-sale.

You could roll the dice and hope enough units make it to online stores at a better price than the KS... and get free shipping at the $100 mark...

goo In other words, this is a 'minor' effort, comprising pretty much only the basic design and components, as opposed to a more complex one (such as those of CMON) with many, many extras and add-ons, involving lots more money. There's not much risk here, since they are just KSing what they are producing anyhow. I think they are just trying to reach a wider audience with their 'normal' product.
