Hi,

I usually stay away from kickstarting stuff and only recently used backerkit for the first time for the Sentinels pre-order. This weekend, I stumbled upon Thunderstone Quest and saw that I missed both kickstarter and the backerkit campaign. The description says the "championship"-tier equivalent will also hit select retailers for a short amount of time next year, but it doesn't state which retailers exactly qualify as being part of the "kick it here" program.

So I'd like some advise on how to proceed from here, as I'm somewhat new to the kickstarting board games thing. Who are the retailers going to be, and is there any way to pre-order with them? Is there any way to still lateback this thing somehow directly with the manufacturer?

Or should I just wait for it to hit retail "normally" in its base variant without all these kickstarter bells and jingles? Apparently, I'll be missing out on some higher quality wooden components and exclusive cards, which may or may not be show up in later expansions, if I understand this correctly.

Cheers.

I'm sure there will be more information on retail options once the game has shipped to the Kickstarter backers. They are hoping to start shipping in January, so my guess is that you could expect to see it on shelves in February or March (again just a guess). Hopefully someone from AEG will stop by and provide a list of who they expect their major outlets to be.

You can find out from your FLGS if they got some Kickstarter copies to resell. If not, AEG already announced during the KS that the game will have a proper retail release.

Thanks for the replies so far. Is there any concise overview what the kickstarter version will have that buyers of the retail release will miss out on? The kickstarter campaign page is just a wall of text about stretch goals and bonuses which gives the impression of a greatly diminished retail version as a consolidation prize for the people that don't religiously follow hot kickstarter board games campaigns only available for very limited amount of time. I get that some board games wouldn't get produced at all without kickstarter.

Trust us the news will be everywhere when we make the next series of Thunderstone announcements. We won't be quiet. Nothing will happen until after we've delivered the Rewards that are now in the fulfillment process through.

Late reply, but, as far as I can tell from the KS page, only one quest (and a meeple) are KSE, although not being KSE doesn't guarantee the item will be available retail. I'm going to assume the non-KSE quests should be your typical retail purchases. Also, the solo/coop kit, while available as a free PnP download, was not available through the KS. And, of course, not everyone will keep the game, so there's always eBay, BGG trading, and your FLGS if they backed the project.

I hope this game will be supported with an expansion or two every year going forward. Also that the game+expansions we got in ks will be in store asap (like in march so i can buy it as a present to a friend whose birthday is in a month) so ppl outside of KS and bgg can see that TS is back and here to stay!
