Just curious. I know I've got the characters, but I don't know if I have the baddies already.

Thanks.

Undertow does not include any content from the base game (nor does it include the expansion characters Ghillie, Tink, or Nugget). It is a stand alone expansion with two new Gearlocs
Spoiler (click to reveal)
Stanza and Duster
, a new battle mat, and new Baddies.

Edit: Also, just to be clear, Too Many Bones does not have any Kickstarter exclusives, and Undertow won't either.

Got it. That sentence about "1 -2 players, but bring" characters to add to 4 is where I got confused.

Is this going to kickstart or just realease?

That statement speaks more to compatibility with the original TMB. All Gearloc characters can be used in either game allowing up to four players to play Undertow, just not out of the box. TMB and Undertow are backwards and forwards compatible as far as characters are concerned.

Yeah, I figured it out when I went back and re-read it. Once I did, it all made sense. It's not a bad sentence, but somehow got mixed up in meaning in my head as I was reading it. Probably misread a word or something.

Any ideas what the price point will be on this kick starter, I need to prepare my bank account for the hit.

There hasn't been any official word yet, although the recent Triplock Kickstarter update from September 14th included the following quote:

Quote:
If the price of TMB scared you off, we're aiming to make Undertow a nice and affordable way to dip your toe in the water (pun intended). Two Gearlocs and a full set of Tyrants, Encounters, and Baddies to play against in the box, all for just a little more than you'd pay for two individual expansion Gearlocs.

That puts the price point somewhere above $49.90 USD. No idea how much "a little more" means, but hopefully it won't be too much higher than that!

They're doing a tease on their Facebook page, and we're down from "Less than 99" to "Less than 69." (It is an assumption on my part that this refers to price, but I think it's a pretty good assumption.) I think something in the $50 range is a pretty good guess for where it will end up. (I'll be thrilled with that. Of course, this being CTG, there will be extra goodies to buy which I will be a total sucker for, but still. A $50-ish base is good.)

Edit: Spoke too soon. The KS price is $68, MRSP is $85.
