Are there any details on the Tasty Minstrel Games (TMG) Deluxified version that’s Kickstarting soon? What’s being upgraded from the start and what requires stretch goals? Any changes or additions to gameplay?

Most importantly, how much money do I need to set aside.

All will become clear in a few weeks when the kickstarter project is announced!

I just bought a regular version. Would be available upgrade packs as well?

I am interested to know if they are going to make any changes to the game Art. I quite like Harald Liske's drawings for the characters and iconography.
However I strongly dislike the drab board art' I'm not sure how functionally critical it is, but it would be nice if there were some changes.

I am interested in this as well. I think the Kickstarter is supposed to launch sometime today.

The launch date for this kickstarter has been shifted due to several high profile KS projects launching next Tuesday.

Look for Gentes Deluxified to hit Kickstarter January 23rd!

I think there's a new Tiny Epic game launching, and a CMON game too if I remember correctly.

Totally blind speculation but here are the likely upgrades based on past deluxifications...

- Metal coins
- Inset playmats, possibly
- Thicker tiles (Probably wood with stickers if the KS is very successful though bakelite tiles for the 28 action tiles would be INCREDIBLE)
- Improvements to wood components (maybe some meeples for player boards)
- Maybe screen printing for the city buildings.
- Box sleeve
- Gold foil on the cover
- A drawstring bag for... something



Like the character art but I agree if they could redo or find a way to bring a bit more life/color to the board while staying consistent with the bronze age look it would go a long way. For example I'm not crazy about the score track. I just don't really like the font (but like it on the box cover) or color choice.

I'm sure it's too late in the process to change anything major but here are some Bronze Age paintings that could be an interesting direction to go color palette/texture wise.

I personally hope that one of the stretch goals is for the metal coins to be improved from previous Deluxe editions they have released. I haven't even used their past metal coins due to the fact that they are so chintzy and small. They almost feel like playing with dimes and pennies.

After being disappointed by Civ: New Dawn as a civ builder, I am very interested in a deluxified version of Gentes.

I'm excited for this too, but having only watched playthrough videos, I'm not sure I would call this game a civ builder... maybe it depends on what your definition is

If you haven't, you might look at Through the Ages: A New Story of Civilization which (to me) is a proper Civ game.

As an owner of the game, I can confirm that it is not a civ builder at all but rather a standard euro that has some civilization-type themes (like eras and such). But it in no way is in the same class as a game like Civilization or Through the Ages.

But as a euro, it's one of my favorites with really interesting and clever mechanisms and gameplay. Highly recommended!

I've only played Gentes once, but it seems to me that it is a civilization builder. However, mechanically, and in scope, I would not conflate Gentes and a Sid Meier's-esque civilization building game.

I'd really like them to make a 2-player specific board on the backside of the 3/4 player board ...
