Yes indeed!

When we have the exact date, we'll let everyone know! For now, it's looking like 2nd or 3rd week of Jan.

Thanks!

Will definitly back this game but hope the KS starts early in January. Why? Because Cool Mini or Not starts its "Hate" KS on the 16th of January and when CMON has a KS launched it is normally not so good an idea to have another boardgame KS running.

Thanks for the Heads-up!

We were actually planning originally to launch that very same day... however, we're considering one week later... which will put us Dead Smack in the middle of CMON and BATMAN (the minis game by the Conan guys) :O

Thanks for the Info. If Rambo would be my KS I would definitly kick off first week of January or wait till February, when CMON and Monoliths Kickstarters are over. Really hope Your Rambo KS will be a huge success!

I agree.

If possible bring the KS date forward or delay until after Batman and Hate.

I have no interest in those other games but many will and so that will negatively impact Rambo.

Indeed, my only concern is that "there will always be a bigger fish" so to speak... meaning, there's always going to be some other Kickstarter campaign that people are looking at. Hate is quite different as is Batman, from Rambo. Starting BEFORE CMON is usually bad, because you'll get Cancellations in pledges. Starting AFTER Batman in FEB would be bad, because we've been marketing for MONTHS and MONTHS about Launching in January! --- so we'd lose out on our Pre-marketing.

My current date is looking like JAN 23rd! --- Keep posting thoughts

Thanks so much for your thoughts and support!

Really difficult decision. Batman starts Feb 27...I predict at this time the Rambo KS will be over. Hate and Batman Gotham City Chronicles will be both Kickstarter exklusive titles...so no buying later in stores. People who like Rambo and those other two games will therefore likely jump on Hate or Batman thinking "I can buy Rambo later in my hobby store". So to push Your Rambo kickstarter there should be some really "must have" kickstarter exklusive stretch goals. Normally I am not a big friend of KS exklusives, but in this special case it is essential to draw backers.

But maybe I am totally wrong with my predictions and all 3 Kickstarters will be massively successful.

it is all a crapshoot really.

i would just go ahead with your plans at this late stage.

i recently backed Okko Chronicles which i thought may struggle to fund as the ip is not that well known around the world and the KS campaign began during Joan of Arc but it did very well, so you just dont know.

if the game is good and captures peoples attention it should be fine..and Rambo is much better known than Okko!

Thanks for the kind words! We will do our best! The game is definitely a ton of fun! So, we will just have to really spread the word!

Thanks so much again!
