Me too. The themes of his other releases just never appealed to me; although, I was tempted by CO2 until I heard how harsh and unforgiving an experience it could be. So here's hoping for 'On Mars.'

Please note the weight of the rules will be around 4.5 on the BGG scale.

Hi,

Just be aware that "harsh and unforgiving" is kind of Vital's trademark.

Wouldn't be a Lacerda game if it wasn't heavy.

If it's convoluted and fiddly in it's rules it's probably be a pass. It's elegant in it's design and just makes your brain hurt then sign me up. Time will tell.

Hi,

Agree. I love how much his games reward excellent planning and building up what feels like “move combos”. That is, where taking an action gives a bonus, and the bonus triggers a bonus, which gives another action, which ... etc.

But on the other side of that coin, if you can’t make 5-6 strategic cogs turn together you likely won’t win and may in fact have a bad time. Probably because you’re stuck with no currency.

I'm not sure how we know that given that the game isn't done yet. Based on where it is now, I wouldn't be too surprised if it ended up closer to 4 than 4.5. But I also wouldn't be too surprised if it ended up over 4.5. It really depends on what happens in playtesting right?

But yeah, any way you look at it, tightness and requiring careful forward planning are a safe bet.

Most/all Lacerda games are 4.0 - 4.5, so no real surprise there.

They've already taken my soul, so I'm pretty sure cash is fine.

Once the KS goes live, funds, delivers their product, and real players get a half dozen or so plays in and start to post to BGG their impressions and positive reviews, thus verifying the game might be good, then my excitement begins!

What is this? Common sense? I read about it books, but I've never seen it in real life! :|

It is very hard to get excited about a game we know almost nothing about.

Vital said himself he was aiming at 4.7...

Plus I’m pretty sure a lot of people have played it. Playtesting has been going on for a good while.

What, and miss out on all the KS exclusives and all the merriment? Vital and EGG have proven themselves to me time and again. I, sir, am well and truly aboard this hype train - Choo Choooooo!
