pretty GD pricey for a base game. Wonder how they'll screw me with the UBoot pledge? Wish I could cancel it.

The expansions are tiny boxes loose in the shipping box. Did you check?

I am sure they will help you out when you contact them. We are still waiting in this hemisphere for shipping news.

Kevin, it seems you pledged via Backerkit and not Kickstarter and hence are not getting the expansions for free as that is how the campaign was structured: free expansions for the KS backers.

I admit, maybe not ideally but we had to draw a line somewhere and decided as such. I am sorry if you are disappointed.

The games are on the way to Asia/Australia/Oceania. We've been told they arrive within a month.

However...

The description of the game on the front page on bgg says:

“The original game has been further enriched by the addition of two new expansions: Sun of Macedon and Price of Failure. These expansions are not Kickstarter exclusives, so they will be included in all copies of the game.”

Is this statement not accurate anymore?

This statement has never been true. It is not compatible with KS page description nor Backerkit pre-order page.

EDIT: I have corrected the description, as this was misleading.

"as this was misleading."

ya think? And not only that but I do believe the Backerkit was described as a late pledge which would imply eligibility to the kickstarter goals. But anyway, pal, I've learned my lesson: avoid Phalanx. But unfortunately I pledged Uboot too (thank goodness I experienced this before pledging Lincoln). And I have asked you to cancel my Uboot pledge to which I have not received a reply. I guess the money is more important.

So despite the evidence that it was advertised differently you still refuse to honor the description? Is the money that important to you? And are you or are you not going to cancel my Uboot pledge, which I have requested multiple times on various venues? A simple yes or no will suffice. Stop evading the request.

@Kevin - please send us a private message at UBOOT Kickstarter page, and we will make you a refund. Sorry but I can't do this basing only on a forum entry.
