Don't you just know it? Those of us with first edition and all expansions already have experienced the outstanding job that Jeremy has done in designing the whole game system. Soon inbound, the graphical upgrades with this edition look superb. More content is added (MOAR!!!), and you know with Jeremy's design precision and the team's ability to game-balance in playtesting (which took a while...) that it will play well.

Reading his design notes guide (the .PDF Kickstarter premium), you can see the care and thoughtfulness. And as someone who has played a bunch of this game solo, I really already pretty much know what I'm getting.

It's gonna be great.

Thanks, VPG and Mssr. Lennert!

Really looking forward to it. It feels like forever, so when it gets here I am sure it will Ben like Xmas opening it up.

What to do with my first edition though?

Hate to be that guy, but yeah sure the game will be great, but I am really worried about those miniatures, I emailed them straight after the offer for a refund asking for clearer photos to make a decision and I received no reply, makes me wonder...

BTW I do love Nemo's War, and Dawn of the Zeds so I know I will love this game, just why did they try and go down the mini route?

If you were unsure I would have just canceled the minis. It's pretty clear from the videos that they were very warped and lacked the detail suggested in the 3D mockups. Worst case they probably wouldn't have been difficult to pick them up retail or aftermarket.

For all of you who are eagerly waiting for their copy to arrive: I am sure you will be happy with what you will get.

I am in the 9th round of my second game. The game looks gorgeous (no minis, just standees), the component quality is good, the extra large map- and event cards are fantastic for my old eyes and the gameplay is as good as ever. And for those of you who were concerned about the new look of the board: 17 rounds in (yes, I lost the first game badly) and I do not remember what the old board looked like cool

Thank you, Jeremy and VPG for making the second edition a reality.

Now, back to round 10.

Just received mine today here in NC. Everything looks good. I didn't order the minis. Might be a while before I get this to the table tho.

For everyone still waiting, I didn't get any messages beyond the original "shipping label" email.
