Come on! I've been waiting for this game for years. It finally is going to be available in North America without paying through the nose, and they cancel the Kickstarter after 4 days?

It had a $15,000 goal, and after 4 days was halfway there. It was going to be successful by a wide margin.

Why?

No announcement, just a cancellation.

Please tell us why.

Jeepers.

Thanks for the link. I was on the Kickstarter about an hour ago and didn't see. it. It took me an hour to stop hyperventilating before I decided to puke my angry words out on BGG.

I guess I should have calmed down enough to give the Kickstarter page a better look.

I pledged for the wooden game, but I'll take it in the usual black and white.

Okay. Looking forward to Tuesday, the 26th of September.

Playing' with my emotions. Oughta be ashamed, Outer Limit Games. Okay, it's more me than you. But, still...

Dundy,

I see now you found the update we posted before canceling. We didn't want to cancel, but we realized that the campaign could be much better and would be moving much faster with some quick adjustments. The good thing is, we're relaunching on Tuesday so you won't have to wait long, and the campaign will still end on Oct 19th as before, so no delay in delivery estimates

The Classic Wooden edition was a major expense, and given we only had about 24 backers for it, it just didn't make good business sense to keep it in the campaign as it has a 1,000 minimum order quantity by itself.

I think the relaunch, with a more streamlined approach to the rewards, will be better for the campaign as a whole and we'll see much faster momentum as a result. Nevertheless, sorry to play with your emotions.. I know the feeling trust me!

Looking forward to seeing you on Tuesday
