For those who are interested, we're about to start a new Kickstarter campaign to get 1862/EA published. We've taken on board some of the concerns expressed last time, and are aiming for a lower total. The project will not last very long, so please keep your eyes peeled! At the moment we're looking to run this for only 10 days, but will contact all the people who kindly showed their support for the previous project.

Please let anyone you know who is interested (or could be interested) in getting hold of a copy that we'll be starting this very soon. I will post back later when we start. Please also note that this is *not* going to be a large (1000) print run like the last 1860 one - unless we get inundated with support that is, which would be nice - if you want a copy you'll need to seriously consider getting one up front.

Many thanks for your interest and support,

Mike.

What? We'll need to buy that as well?

Good luck with this one Mike - looks like a very interesting addition to the 18xx canon.

Will you have a pledge level pairing 1862 with 1860? I would have pledged last time to get both but that level was all gone by the time I discovered the KS campaign.

What's the rationale for the shorter, 10 day, campaign?

Yes, I know a proper 18XX tile should have a tile number.

The bundling was enabled by a corporate structure that may have contributed to the failure of the first Kickstarter campaign.

Markus didn't bring the games, the guy who bought up JKLM stock from bankruptcy did. I don't think that should have been an issue.

Could you please updated your shipping costs with more detailed country lists.
I seriously doubt that the shipping "UK to Ireland" costs as much as "UK to New Zealand", but according to your current list would both cost £15.
And why is now the free shipping for Europe gone?
At the previous campaign you were still offering "Free delivery for those living in Europe" if pledging 1 copy of 1862.

Regardless, the perception was probably poison for a few would-be supporters.
