I'll have a read of the rules and look into it. Thanks for the link. I see you've already answered the question I had about postage. I suggest that you fill out the content ASAP. Look at the content in other games using crowdfunding for the kind of info that backers like to see.
As a minimum a link to the rules, postage information, a list of components and a summary of game play with some images.
Also for some more exposure list your game in the kickstarter announcement thread (I know it isn't a kickstarter but the thread is misnamed so don't worry about it).
Huh, I don't recall hearing about Plethora previously. I'll have to check into it. I do remember your Selandia and being interested in that; whatever happened with that? (It's not on any of the pledge levels so I'm guessing it was never produced?)
I think the artwork for this game is stunning, but I'd looooove to see a quick video explaining the gameplay, some reviews and/or some session reports.
It looks like the exchange rate is going to make the game cost $70+ here in the US. That's fine (shipping is included after all) and I've reviewed the rules; I'd just love to see it in action and/or hear from some folks who've actually played it.
Hey Russell, The game is all about making small decisions to slightly get ahead of your opponents. For example: - How to use your dice actions - Which rendezvous/commission to keep - When to buy your required gemstones - Which nobility cards to purchase
The gemstone board is similar to that in Power grid. Gives it that 'ecomony' feel.
If the crowdfunding is successful, it should be ready towards the end of September - but can't guarantee it.
The board is made up of 19 hexagonal tiles, and 9 frame peices. The frames, and 1 centre tile (Goldsmith) are always played in the same position, whereas the other 18 tiles are random each game.
