Got this and played it a couple of times this weekend. Love it. Great game. Great components. Just all around fantastic.

But I have one complaint. I cannot stand the cheesy cardboard standees for the Wonders. Ugh! Augh! I'm sure the decision on that was due to production cost. All those other plastic city bits had to be expensive, but I'd gladly pay for a set of nicer, larger standees on plastic bases. The ones that come with the game truncate so much of the image that it's hard to even tell what each Wonder is. It's hardly "wondrous" to say the least.

So if anyone's inclined to print up some promos for the geekstore...I'd buy something like that in a heartbeat

I can´t agree more! The wonders are very ugly...
I would buy some minis too!

I agree with you and you are correct that it was production costs. Christian has previously indicated he wanted golden minatures for each but that the cost proved to be too prohibitive for the publisher. If you look through the forums though there have been a couple people to make alternative pieces from craft store items. I think that is the route I will be taking myself to pimp my set.

Yup. That's why at least a couple of us have created new wonders out of wood or foam and painted them Gold. Much more enjoyable than with the cardboard wonders.

I really, really, really wanted gold-colored minis for Wonders. But the game was already very expenssive to make and has a much lower profit margin than most games. Adding minis would mean a beautiful game, but a fiasco with no sales.

An unfortunate fact.

Thank you fir the kind words.

Keep having fun cool

Sounds like an opportunity to make some money ala Animeeples and Vegemeeples.

Personally, I am OK with the cardboard bits (more so than the plastic unit bits actually).

Well, should the opportunity ever arise to cast golden wonders and sell them separately, I'd be more than happy to pay for them. Or maybe we'll see them included in an expansion someday (along with elephants!).

Christian, first of all, congratulations for the excellent game!
The guys from Clever Mojo Games had a great idea: they offered a deluxe upgrade pack to their game Alien Frontiers (as some other guys did before for other games). What about that? I think your game deserves it! I would spend some bucks on that, for sure!

3D printing is an option nowadays. The meshes shouldn't be hard to create.
