This will fund, and Queen will never learn.

The games are going to be produced, and sold in retail for cheaper.

Backers will be waiting for games in December that won't come for months later. Meanwhile it will be available to non backers for much less, and much sooner.

$76? I definitely will buy this game, but I think I'll wait for retail.

Is this an example of Queen not learning, or Queen backers not learning?

Well, it's an infinite loop.

Hey everyone,

I just want to point out that the game will not be hitting retail distribution in the same way that Queen Games in the past have. In the past, Queen has sold stock to Amazon, and they have set the prices based on their algorithm (for better or worse).

That won't be happening for Merlin, as this printing will not be hitting general distribution. If you are planning on not backing and waiting for it to be $15 on Amazon, you will probably end up disappointed.

Where has Queen said this?

Edit: Never mind I see they "plan" to only sell it from their website after the kickstarter. We'll see about that.

Here is my obligatory, I am still waiting for my Dark Darker Darkest rewards from the BGG contest and the Kickstarter. That was published in 2013. That's four years ago. Woo.

Ha! So it is. It would appear that Queen plans to sell "this version" only through the kickstarter, which I assume means with the Queenie promo and maybe the expansion.

It says it right at the top but it says "this version" which means they are probably doing something along the line of a KS version:

Quote:
This version of either game will not be in distribution in the United States, Canada, Australia, Taiwan, and certain European Countries. They are only available through Kickstarter or directly from Queen Games at conventions or online.

MM put that pre-order up before the campaign was launched. The only way that they will be selling the game is if they do a retailer pledge on the Kickstarter. I obviously am not a prophet, but I would not expect them to be fulfilling that preorder at that price.

By this version, it will certainly mean with the Queenies, and quite possibly be the whole printing, besides any stock reserved for sale direct from Queen or at conventions.

(I'm helping with comments on the Kickstarter, so I have some knowledge of the situation)

Currently my vow to never back another Queen KS is winning out over my vow to buy all Feld games.

I am sure this can be had for much cheaper later on. And by later, I mean earlier than the actual KS delivery.

This is unlikely as Asmodee have taken over Distribution for Queen so it's probably not even up to Queen to decide on that. It will hit retail for sure.

What I find interesting is that the Kickstarter refers to the King's Favor module as an expansion. Based on the rulebook, I was sure it would be included in the base game. What do you make of this?
