Now that we see what is likely the final set of updates, how are you pledging? Double captain, Apprentice, Acolyte? Something else?

I've personally gone back and forth on 2x Captain a number of times...currently sitting on Acolyte, but people keep providing good arguments to switch back. I just hate to have a lot of extra stuff unused, even if it's cheaper.

Apprentice Level
- Spriggan w/sleeves
- Skald w/sleeves
- Agents of Darkness
- Extra dice
- Elemental Boss
- Treasure Bag
- Treasure deck
- Quest expansion
- Regular card sleeves (x4)
- Tile Supplement
- Sculpted Lairs (x1)

I considered more sets of monsters but with what you get at apprentice its just not efficient and I don't want to drop the other $50 for double captain because I'm already almost to $350 and I like the addons more. My guess is I'll get plenty of models at apprentice to do double lairs, hence buying an extra set of lairs.

I'm guessing this is why we're seeing so many Kickstarter projects right now.

I just went with Captain and a couple add-ons. Everything will be available at retail later on, so there's not much point in adding a ton of stuff that isn't exclusive. It'll give you time to play the game a bunch, and then add the stuff you didn't get during the campaign when it's released.

Right now, I'm thinking captain with $100 of add-ons used in the follow:

Spriggan $15
Skald $15
Elemental Boss $20
Treasure Deck Expansion $10
Quest Expansion 1 $ 15
Still debating on tile supplement vs agents of darkness $25
(leaning towards the tiles)

I plan on playing with 2-3 people and usually just 2. For that reason, I'd rather have the add-ons for variety instead of duplicate models and lairs.

I'm in for Captain level with plans to up my pledge after the fact. I'm assuming that I'll be able to do that, correct?

I wish there was more information about the actual game play. I know the heroes are very well covered but there's just the two game play videos with lots of minis on the same tile? I assume that's how it will play most of the time? Play cards to beat a wave / huge amount of figures or is there more to the game than that? I need to watch all the videos. Interested and it looks great but do it play great?

There are quests with other objectives that aren't focused around killing monsters but the fact is, this is a hack and slash dungeon crawler and you need to be prepared for that. The way I see it, through all the videos, is the gameplay is incredibly fun as well as drawing new cards and figuring out what amazing combos you can execute with the abilities in the rest of your group. That makes it WELL worth the cost.

Yes, but it may or may not count towards stretch goals at that point...

Yes, you can, but it won't increase the funding amount and unlock more stretches. Try to get your total to as close to you think you want it before it ends tomorrow morning. That is my goal when I get home from work today.

I am bouncing between Captain and Apprentice still. I think I may stick with Captain with a few add-ons and I will pick up more stuff if the game turns out to be something I enjoy and play enough. I am having a hard time justifying throwing down 300+ bucks for everything to run dual lairs and all the content add-ons. I can buy A LOT of games for 300 dollars, which would be way more variety and bang for your buck, so I think I am going to play it safe, we shall see.

EDIT:
Decided to take the plunge for $335! Hopefully this is going to be awesome.

Currently at 325, the limit of my disposable income:

Double Captain
Skald w/ sleeves
Spriggan w/ sleeves
Elemental Boss
Treasure Bag
Treasure Deck
6X6 Tile set
Agents of Darkness

In the pledge manager I'll likely upgrade big:
Upgrade to Acolyte
Upgrade to Apprentice
2 sets of extra dice
Treasure Bag
Skald w/ sleeves
Spriggan w/ sleeves
Sleeve packs for everything
Another set of lairs.

Some of that will be a gift for a friend, but mostly just for me. Also, I don't think we're done seeing updates from MERCS.

Pretty much what I had done, then decided to jump to Acolyte. I may drop back down before it's all over though...I'm really questioning how bad I need the extra minis.

* Captain ($100)
* Spriggan + Sleeves ($20)
* Skald + Sleeves ($20)
* Treasure Deck ($10)
* Quest Deck ($15)
* Elemental Boss ($20)
* Agents of Darkness ($20)
* Lairs ($8)
Total: $206 + $13 shipping

I'm gonna sleeve all remaining cards with regular FFG sleeves which I've plenty of lying around thanks to Descent.
The Skald and Spriggan were a no-brainer for me since they add tons of variety and replayability, the same goes for the treasure and quest deck. I don't care about the extra lairs too much but they seemed like a really good deal for just eight bucks.
As far as the agents and the elemental boss goes, I really was on the fence about this one. The agents in particular sound kinda half-baked but I'm sure they'll iron things out til next year. They do add a completely new feature to the game so that's pretty interesting in and by itself.

I'm pretty sure the character and Darkness cards are equal to CCG sized sleeves like those used for Magic. If you plan on sleeving these, I know for a fact that the larger sized sleeves needed for Descent are smaller than CCG size sleeves. I found this out when I tried to sleeve the Star Wars LCG with them.

The small sleeves from Descent SHOULD match the treasure cards from Myth.

According to the FAQ, the cards are 63x88mm, so Standard Card Game Pack should fit just fine.

But even if not, I've plenty of MtG sleeves left over as well due to Thunderstone :-)
