Cheapass is going to Kickstart a deluxe edition, starting 8/14/2012.

http://cheapass.com/node/94

I doubt it'll be tough for them to hit $10,000...

Ten thousand might be easy, it might not. I have no idea. But you should see our stretch goals.

Believe me, I'm looking forward to 'em.

Moo-ha-ha, eh?

Is the Cheapass demo monkeys mailing list still around? I think it would be a good idea to get the word out via the list. I have a Meetup towards the end of the month I'll be going to, and will bring along my copy of Unexploded Cow to promote the Kickstarter!

I think most of the demo monkeys are following us on Facebook at this point. If they are still engaged.

If you demo Unexploded Cow, make sure you have the new free version. It's close (but not completely like) the upcoming release. We will post an update to the free version after Gen Con.

The rules just keep getting better.

Will this be available at retail eventually? I'd love to support it but paying nearly as much for shipping as for the game itself is a major turn-off for me, especially when I'm right next door (as it were) in Canada.

Funded with 29 days to go! Woot! Now, can we make it to the 60k under-stretch?

Edit:
As far as getting there, how can we increase the visibility of the kickstarter around here? I was keeping an eye out for it and I missed this post. Never saw it across the front page or anything.. heck even doing a full forum search for 'Unexploded Cow' doesn't put any of the kicker posts in the first 4 or 5 pages of results. The only way I happened upon it was pulling up James' designer page while I was looking for something else. If folks can't even find it when looking specifically for *this* game, that's gonna make it hard to snag them as backers...

Is this going to be a completely overhauled version of the rules? Enough perhaps that it deserves its own game page? If so, put the petition in to the admins NOW so things don't get messy.

The Kickstarter URL is visible directly in the game's information under "Pre-Order Link". This has been added to the Kickstarter geeklist. There's not really much more that has to be done for this. It'll propagate on its own.

Well, besides the internets, you can always use Meetups to get the word out. You don't list which city you're in, so here's the Meetup Find page : http://www.meetup.com/find/

Ok, I am now a backer for the game! Seriously, though, anyone complaining about the amount they have to spend for overseas shipping should also acknowledge that with the minimum pledges, you can get the *pdf* of the game. Which means printing your own, if you'd rather do it this way... I also backed the Kickstarter 'Camden' game (rewrite of Agora).

I'll just say one thing: go and pledge!

P.s. Because the project is fully funded, I know that Cheapass will deliver what has been promised thumbsup
