Keyper (Standard Edition) will be coming to Kickstarter on Wednesday, Nov 1! If you missed the first Kickstarter for the Character Edition or weren't able to pick up a copy in person at Essen Spiel, this is a great way to get the latest installment in the "Key" series!

What has changed that will allow you to put it on Kickstarter since you sold the standard edition in the first campaign as well? Why Kickstarter when you could just release at retail?

Please note that Richard Breese and R & D Games ran the first KS campaign, not Game Salute. My take on this is that Game Salute will be printing the Retail Edition for wider distribution. This implies that the Retail Edition is farther away from being widely available than I expected, at least until GS gauges interest via KS.
Perhaps I'm wrong but we shouldn't expect it to hit retail stores outside of FunAgain (in charge of fulfillment KS limited 1st print) for the time-being.

Any idea on the pricing and shipping to Europe?

these are probably already printed and they're just using kickstarter as a store and should probably not be allowed to since there is nothing new and the game was already funded w/ kickstarter but I'm sure they'll find some loophole.

Calm down, people. Game Salute has kickstarted the North American (at least) publication of every R&D game since Keyflower. No one is hurting you.

So what’s the catch here - why would you back the Kickstarter as opposed to waiting for retail? Will there be KS exclusives? Or is it an early access thing for people like myself who are Keydom junkies?

well the keydom junkie kickstarter was a year ago

if this does as well as, say, keyflower, backing this kickstarter from game salute assures you a copy of the game. It might be available cheaper later. it will go on sale once in a while. It will be out of print and more expensive between runs.

The R&D KS was to launch the Character Edition. I added the Standard Edition to the R&D KS as gamers were requesting that option. The only way to get the Character Edition is from R&D Games at rqbreese@gmail.com

Game Salute are the US distributors and their business model includes the use of KS as a way to distribute the game.

We will be offering Keymelequin in the PledgeManager, which is a direct-only item.

I already secured a copy of Keyper directly from R&D, but would love ta have Keymelequin. Can I pledge only for only that in the pledge manager?

Richard, first off, you’re the man. Totally looking forward to this and the KeyMarket KS you had been talking about recently (hopefully that’s still on!). I appreciate how interactive you are with your fanbase, I’m sure it’s time consuming to be so accessible. I’m sure more details will be released tomorrow, but is there one way that that we would be able expect to receive the game sooner or will KS and retail deliver at the same time?

This looks like a pretty standard Game Salute "storefront USA" campaign to me, which is a really dubious KS - exactly what's being funded here? They state that the game has already been printed shake

If I get this KS, will the character mini expansion be available to buy as add-on or standalone on a later that (from meeplesource or other site)?

Thanks in advance.

We don't distribute the game in Europe, for that you should go through R&D Games.
