Re: Asking your questions to the Game design
We have lot's of fantasy type rpg/dungeon crawl campaign games , would this be possible to do in a western theme?

Shadows of Brimstone is close but just pure western theme.

I don't have played to all western boardgames, as i said in an other post, i'm not a "hardcore" gamer, i don't have enough time to play as much as i want.

So my favorites one are Bang ! and Colt Express, but i have an eye on Great Western Legends. I hope i will find the time to try it.

I'm not sure to well understand your question, but if i do, yes i think it's possible to do a campaign game. I have some ideas for that, but it's take time...

Hard to answer and select only one...
Maybe Jesse James, Geronimo and billy-the-kid in the base version of the game

Yes i would love to do something like a legacy version of the game, with solo mode into. But not now, maybe in few years...

Haha ! Love this question !
I used to be a wanted player because it’s more dangerous and challenging because you have to avoid arrestation from sheriff and marshal players.
But i can play as a marshal or neutral player too. Especially if there is a lot of wanted player. In this case I would be marshal to try to arrest them all.

Is an expansion to the game board in the works, with additional locales, actions, etc... to enrich gameplay beyond the base map?

It worries me when the designer states, "I'm not a hardcore gamer." Does he have the experience to create a good game? Only time will tell... I guess.

I'm assuming this means that an expansion will be available as an add on during the Kickstarter? Or is this still in development?

As Travis said, he and the Kolossal team have done a great work to help me on the game (as some french developers helps me before), and they also add their great experiences and ideas in the game.

Hopfully not only "hardcore" gamers could have good ideas. It will be sad If it was the condition to create good games you will almost never seen new game designers on the market

Same thing in others media, i'm convinced that rookies could do good things...
Look in sport, cinéma and more (first example i have in my mind was Mel Brooks, who received the Oscar for his first movie scenario he write... Of course i am not Mel Brooks but this is an example)

Yes and no

I have a lot of ideas for that, but right now, there is nothing done, this is just ideas for later (maybe in some months or more, i really don't know).

But you will see, there is already a lot of things to do in the game.

Well said Hervé! From what I’ve seen and read, you and the other teammates have done a “Kolossal” job getting this ready to go. Best of luck with the KS. I’m in, kitchen sink and all...

I am all in (especially with the minis from Matagot-guys)!

Any chance of Kickstarter (exclusive) stretch goals with "cameos/hommages" from movies, comics, books etc?

Would love to see some Blueberry minis, Truman's Hawken, Truman's Jonah Hex, Lone Ranger, a non-comic Lucky Luke, 60´s Django, True Grit, Trinity and Bambino, and the Man with No Name...

(but better stay away from Tarantino's Django and Hateful Eight, given the issues with The Bride and Jules in Zombicide)
