Is there a comprehensive list of all the differences between the KS and retail editions? In particular I'm interested in any content in the KS edition that will not be in the retail edition and will need to be acquired separately, but a full list including all cosmetic differences would be nice as well.

Oorf, you're asking for a lot there, there's so much content that I would have a hard time to break it down I'll ask if they can answer you.

There is no difference. But backers receive a few free add-ons. These add-ons are available for retail too, just not for free. They are marked on the campaign stretch goals with little green badges. They are:

1) 3 resource sacks for beans, milk and sugar
2) set of 8 cubee meeples (in choice of "nude" or "apron")
3) Boardgame Media promo pack (approximately 22 cards)
4) Quality Beasts promo pack (approximately 22 cards)
5) City Celebrities promo pack (card quantity: a mystery!)
6) resin first player marker(s)

Again, you can get all of these retail (while supplies last) but they will be paid-for, out-of-box items.

Hope this helps to answer your question!

PS. Oh, and backers get €5 off the MSRP for the base game and another €5 off MSRP for the 5 to 6 player expansion. As of now we are not 100% what the bonus Founder Cards will cost but backers are getting them free of charge for the purchase of a Blaue Bohne box sleeve.

Thanks for the list! I'm embarrassed to say that I hadn't paid enough attention to the campaign and needed bailing out.

The Resin Snack Pack add-on, while not included in the package and possibly available later, might belong in the list as well for practical costs-a-lot-of-extra-shipping-if-purchased-later reasons. Will these be prepainted? Could use something like this to use with other games too like Grand Austria Hotel if quantity and variety of items match up.

Yes, they are painted. They are by the same manufacturer that did the Stonemaier treasure chests if you've seen those. They will comparable in quality and style.

Due to their high quality the cost is non-trivial and this is why we did not include it in as a free backer promo. Already the €39 pledge level gave backers about €77,50 worth of content and components.

What is the quantity and variety you would be looking for?

I looked again at Grand Austria Hotel and color-wise the snacks don't match, so I might not go that route after all. GAH has 30 cubes each of black coffee, white cake, light brown strudel, and red wine. The red wine I'd obviously have to get elsewhere, the black coffee I could use the coffee beans, light brown strudel I could use the croissants. It would be great if the cakes in the resin snack pack were white to match GAH, but if not I could use sugar cubes.

With 6 of each resource in the resin snack pack I'd have to get 5 sets which is really steep price-wise and another reason I'll probably not go that route.

But I'm excited that you were able to source those resin components from the manufacturer who did Stonemaier's (Panda?) because theirs are really nice. Totally understand why they're an add-on since they're not cheap. It's already pretty crazy that you've managed to squeeze in the resin coffee beans, milk cartons, and sugar cubes into the game! Those will be in the retail version as well?

Perhaps you would consider creating a separate snack pack product that could cover the needs of GAH as well as other games

Do the bonus founder cards come with the 5-6 pack expansion as well ? or only with the sleeve ?

Hey Y P, sorry that I missed this and although a lot of time has passed I figure it may still be useful to answer.

Agreed. I can't responsibly recommend this.

Yup, and now that we're seeing the final versions straight from mass production I am happy to report it was the right decision. Panda is not letting us down!

Thanks for saying so. I think these components were very important to give the game the fun factor it has. And yes, our current "Kickstarter" version is the retail version. Though we do kick around ideas at the office of a streamlined version (which non-fabric cups and way customer groups) to be released if we sell completely out and there is still retail demand. We'll just have to see how things go!

Very interesting! Will certainly add it to our list of release ideas. Thanks for the feedback.

Year late, but yes, can verify this is correct.

My gross apologies to have missed this thread, y'all! :O
