I gave this a try on Tabletopia as I was asked to review this as part of a group I belong to, it is awaiting final editing and approval. Typically I review for content and playability, not whether the game is good or bad as I don't believe that getting into opinions wars are helpful as you can polarize players quickly. However, I will say that I am not an abstract gamer fan, and my final line did say I would add this to my collection. Pity I missed the KS, but maybe if they open the pledge manager and allow pre-orders I will jump in.
Comment from Mindclash on the campaign, from two days ago: "Even late pledges will be available in the pledge manager, so you can do it on her behalf, or she can do it herself, whichever you'd prefer "
This was in response to a question about adding a copy of the game for a friend that missed the campaign.
So, good news for you it would seem!
