Looks like backerit just went live! Now time to decide what add-ons to get and wether or not to upgrade my pledge (currently at base game $109 pledge only)

I am definitely getting a utility pack but past that not sure. The base pledge has so much value... and I just went in on vindication and MB: Collussion... so not sure I can swing the $209 pledge even if I really want that box!

What are you all getting/adding?

Looking forward to playing this soon!

Only in for the upgrade pack. I have too much in the Base Game that I've not played and not keen on some of the more supernatural elements added in Aftershock. I know it's in some of the video game influences, but with Brook City on the way too, I have more than enough.

SM $109 tier, Redemption 1&2, Utility pack, and Fighter dice pack.

Really happy w/ the $16 shipping charge ($15 base plus $1 for all add-ons). Shipping on comparable projects appears to have gone up around 50% in the past year.

Your time stamp is first. Gotta go w/ the original.

These are the decisions that exhibit our humanity. Choose a side and fight for what's right.

That's how we do things in Blacklist City.

Returning backer, mostly just picking up the new stuff. Aftershock, Redemption 2, Boss Minis 2. I'm taking a gamble on the compendium since we don't know a whole lot about it, but I'm hoping it will at least be useful for mini-painting reference art. Also picking up a couple extra sets of dice because I gave them a miss last time and seriously regretted it. If you're a new backer, do yourself a favor and grab at least one utility pack because the base game felt like it didn't have enough dice.

Yeah I remember you and some others making very helpful posts about this. Definitely getting one utility pack myself. That should be enough right? My main group is 4 if it matters (although I plan to do solo as well)

Depends on your definition of "enough". If you just want enough to avoid rerolls and mental math, one utility pack should be fine. If you hate passing dice around the table and want every player to not have to reroll and do mental math, you'd need quite a bit more.

At minimum, 1 utility pack. At maximum, 1 utility pack + 2 dice packs for every player beyond the first. Add turbo dice packs as you feel necessary, but you should only need extras if you want every player to have a set. The set of turbo dice from the stretch goals should be enough to avoid rerolls and mental math.

Edit: Link to the article I wrote about this. See question 2.

I like to have enough for a dice stack on each side of table... which 2-3 players can easily share... and occasionally needing to pass dice across the table (combine pools) for particularly crazy/big rolls is fine... but I would like to not have to be passing all night so people can focus on the game and not finding a dice.

Sounds like a utility pack and 1-2 dice packs then?

Yup, that about do it. 8 red dice and 4 white dice on each side of the table would work pretty well if two players can share. If you're truly adverse to passing dice, maybe consider getting a second set of turbo dice so you can have a set on either side. Although that probably depends on how often you're going to play Turbo mode, so go with your gut on that.

Yeah, I'm really not happy with the $50 shipping cost. Estimate in the KS was $20 - $30.

Getting most of the gameplay content. Page is currently not working for me though (won't move on from the 'Addons' page). Guess I'll try again later some time.

Same here: shipping estimated 35, now 59 (ouch).

I still want almost everything, though, and I know shipping from the Blacklist warehouse later will be a bigger cost. So the next window of opportunity for me would be the next KS after Aftershock. (And I certainly hope and think there will be another one, seeing how this one was really successful.)

Rant notwithstanding, what are everyone's opinions of the Battlecon Pack? Do we have any interesting info on the playstyle for these 3 fighters?

Battlecon is just allies. Bottom tier on gameplay value, if you buy everything else and want more then go for it.

I know the $20-$30 were only estimates but $50 is really steep. Have not payed this much for shipping ever.

I made a video to help everyone with their pledge manager. It takes a little time for BGG to approve videos, so it will be in the videos section, or you can find it here:

Yeah, the shipping prices are....odd. Aftershock tier costs more than just Street Masters tier, yet the Street Masters has more "stuff". Maybe it's because of the collectors box?

Then, the combo tier is the two tiers added together even though it has less items than the separate tiers.

On the other hand, for all the add-ons I got the shipping was cheap ($3). Thus I guess it kinda evens out? So I'm not really complaining, just....confused?

Postal rates are based on size more than weight. Thus with the combo tier there's a big increase.

Is there mention of how long it will be open? I was hoping to get Brook City before finalizing the pledge for Street Masters.

Since the game isn't due for a while, it'll most likely be open for a long while. Brook City's manager was kept open until just a month or two before the game will arrive, so I believe you should have some time

So much for ASS-U-MPTIONS.

Currently Black List is saying it'll be open for 30 days.

Is there a convenient spreadsheet anywhere of how many characters, bosses, and stages you get at each pledge level? These content-packed games sometimes end up having those.

It may not matter though... hoping for a Late Pledge option soon

Not a spreadsheet per se, but I broke down each box's content into a table for an article.


Fighters
Enemies

Rivals and Allies
Core

KS1

Redemp 2
10

10
Legend:
Core = Street Masters: Rise of the Kingdom
KS1 = 1st Kickstarter Stretch Goals
LoO = Legend of Oni
TT = Twin Tiger
BatCon = BattleCON Crossover
Redemp = Redemption Pack
BCxover = Brook City Crossover
AS = Aftershock
EoE = Essence of Evil
KS2 = 2nd Kickstarter Stretch Goals
Redemption = Redemption 2 Pack (Note: It has not been confirmed that there will be exactly 10 ally/rivals in this pack, but the designers have estimated there will be around 10)

Adding these up into the different tiers gives


Fighters
Enemies
Stages
Rivals and Allies
SM Tier
19
13
22
30
AS Tier
15
8
14
16
Combo Tier
24
16
28
30

Legend:
SM Tier = Core, KS1, LoO, KS2
AS Tier = AS, EoE, KS2 + Upgrade pack & Deluxe box
Combo Tier = Core, KS1, LoO, KS2, AS, EoE + Deluxe box

Then just add whatever small box expansions you're buying to your tier to get the final count.
