Hey,

Just wondering if anyone knows what this will generally cost in retail.

Also, what is the difference between the KS Explorer pledge and retail edition?

Thanks!

No plans for retail release. Instead they are doing a second kickstarter.

As I recall from a previous thread, Serious Poulp did not plan to release a retail version of this in this printing. Hence a second Kickstarter in the fall. Apparently, they are providing more info about this at GenCon.

There is no retail edition. The only way to get it are leftover KS copies from SP directly (if/when to they go on sale) or the upcoming second KS.

Edit: double ninja'd

If you go look at the kickstarter campaign they have a list of all the components and say which components are exclusive to kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1926712971/the-7th-cont...

As far as I can tell the exclusives are:
the molded characters and fire
the swamp of madness curse expansion
The "Black box" curse
lovecraft and frankenstein playable characters
the magnifying glass
The "collector edition" box
77 cards of various types not related to the above curses.

As has been said, they aren't having a retail version but instead are running a second kickstarter. In the future, they've listed a retail price of 170 euros compared to the 89 euro kickstarter price. I have to assume that this will be different this time around, but who can say. As for myself, if I hadn't gotten either Kickstarter, the retail price of $200 is well worth this amazing game. But I'm glad I was able to get it at a bit of a discount for being a first campaign backer.

It'll be interesting to see how much of the content from the first campaign will be available again during the 2nd.

I think there's probably a 10% chance my wife will like this, so I really have no business caring, but the whole thing intrigues me (and I somehow missed it altogether until it starting shipping).

Based on what SP has said (though no official announcement has been made yet), I expect them to offer everything from the first KS in the second campaign, with no changes except for errata fixes for the second print run, plus new expansions/add ons that original and new backers can buy.

Seems like 100% of the content from the first KS will be available in the 2nd. We'll find out soon enough, but they have said in interviews that they plan to make all KS Exclusive content available, so I don't see why they wouldn't reprint the add ons too (bone dice, Cartographer's Notebook, etc.)
