And more than 30 hours left.

$100/hour and we reach the last stretch goal. Could it work?

Not that I'd need it, BTW. I'm already very happy with the extra's that are included right now. But I'm amazed that so many people are still contributing, and almost believing that we could reach that last goal.

And it seems that Artipia has made a good estimate of the amount of money they could collect with this marketing action. Congratulations, Artipia.

Help me out here please - "k" stands for "Kilo" and kilo is 1,000, isn't it? So 28k = 28,000.

However, it's of course $38,000. Well, it's early in the morning here and I'm still sleepy meeple

You were typing money raised (38,000); David thought of it as funds needed to the next stretch goal (2,800)

1.6k left with 21 hours to go...

Now the question is not: "Are we going to make it to 40k?" but rather "HOW SOON are we going to make it to 40k?"

Hah! I've managed to get a friend to invest in a copy, seeing the total rise to $39,354 with 14 hours to go.

& in case you're wondering, I'm definitely not obsessively refreshing the page every ten minutes or so. >_>

EDIT: & now it's gone up to $39,409, yay!

I think I'll be preordering it later, but that will only bring the total to $39,994. $39,996 if I go for the vanity perk of having my name in the book. It would stink to come this close to all perks and miss.'
Nevermind. Goal reached and I didn't even have to order.

Related to this, for those of you who have played the P-n-P verion, what have your thoughts been? Absolutely worth the pre-order? Mostly worth the pre-order? How does it play 2 player?

Thanks,

This was my review after one play, and it only gets better.

Thoughts after one play of the PnP version

I have since played about 7 games, with a total of 6 opponents, and:
2 have decided to back it
1 is very tempted
1 is my wife so doesn't need another copy
and the other 2 are newbie gamers who enjoyed the game but aren't quite ready for Indiegogo yet!

The 2-player mode plays very well, 3 of my plays have been 2 player.

Nice. Thanks! My group likes 7 Wonders but I feel more like the game plays itself. "Take a card. Play it down. Repeat." Not a lot to decide.

Dominion is fun from a purely mechanical standpoint, but RftG is really a cool game. Unfortunately only my wife and I like it. Still, that's more than good enough!

I'm thinking that this game might be a good addition to our library. Interested to hear what other folks say. Reading review /sessions now.
