Lots of kickstarter games should be arriving around late October/November. Can't wait!

To stop myself from continually refreshing their BGG pages I thought I'd make this thread so I can hopefully talk with other addicts who are also patiently waiting for their games.

In order of looking forward to the mostess:

1) Among the Stars - I've played a printout version of this at the Auckland BGBTB and really enjoyed it! I've been waiting to play it again ever sine...

2) Chicken Caesar - Nothing like a bit of Political Intrigue, although I just know my playgroup will back stab me out of all the deals

3) The Resistance: Avalon - Have played The Resistance a lot I'm Looking forward to spicing it up a bit.

4) The Manhattan Project + The Manhattan Project: Second Stage - A worker placement game where you can Nuke your opponent!

5) Briefcase - Actually don't know that much about this one, got it as a packaged deal with Among the Stars.

6) Flash Point: Fire Rescue – 2nd Story + Flash Point: Fire Rescue – Urban Structures - More buildings to burn to the ground!


How is everyone else holding up?

I'm, I'm afraid there's been a mistake. The man who has been speaking to you is an impostor. He is not in fact the Bishop of East Anglia, but a man wanted by the police. I am the Bishop of East Anglia and anyone who doesn't believe me can look me up

I actually received a few recently, so my current problem is getting them all played:

Sentinels of the Multiverse, plus its various expansions.
Flash Point: Fire Rescue – 2nd Story, so now I have 4 sets of meeples: wooden pawns, 2x wooden firefighters, and plastic firefighters. My box runneth over.
Puzzle Strike (Third Edition), plus its expansion.

I'm still waiting on
Escape: The Curse of the Temple, plus its various expansions (reported in Oz so should be here soon). Got it!
Gauntlet of Fools, for which I have a shipping notice. Got it!
Glory to Rome, though I'm not exactly optimistic about receiving that soon!

Edit - fixed mismatched bracket. The shame!

My kickstarter copy of Escape: The Curse of the Temple arrived yesterday.

Glory to Rome - group-buy, don't even care when this one arrives. Excitement level zero.

Kittens in a Blender expansion - they are massively behind schedule

Vitaculture - only just finished their campaign, so now need to forget about it till next year

Amongst the Stars - looking forward to this, but still patient.Just like with Escape it will be a nice surprise when its on the doorstep

Kings of Air and Steam - group-buy, I can't remember what the latest is on that one.

Got my copy of Sentinels of the Multiverse the other day and so far have played one solo game (win against Ambuscade) and one 3 player game (loss to Spite).

Waiting for The Resistance: Avalon.

Not due til June 2013 is Storm Hollow: A Storyboard Game.

Did anyone back Fallen City of Karez? Looked at it but couldn't justify it with other up and coming purchases. shakeI should have looked one post upshake

I read a lot about this one through the games for geek gold. It was a struggle not to get it but finances when it came up... + I saw problems getting it played

Hey, me too! I just got back from holiday today and discovered a HUGE box containing 2x Escape, 2x Escape expansion, 2x Roma (2nd Edition), 2x Escape promos. Tried it with my daughter and she approves, so that's a win

I also forgot to mention Railways of North America (currently an active Kickstarter project). I used to have Railways of the World, but sold it in favour of Steam and now miss that sprawling, over-produced game... but it's not due until June 2013

Is this the 2nd printing of fleet? an expansion? I got this game in a geekbay auction a few weeks ago. Didn't know something else was coming out.

On the other hand, Im backing two.

Hope this is just excitement leading to hyperbole and not what you're expecting Brad since you explicitly don't nuke anyone in TMP. You can use conventional bombs to deny opponents use of their buildings. Atomic bombs are built and occasionally tested but not exploded on the enemy.

The mechanics of The Manhattan Project are awesome. I love the combination of shared worker placement and the take x to make y to make z. I've only played it twice, but I love it more every time.

I keep on hearing this. I've seen projects go unfunded, I've seen projects cancelled by the creator and (unfairly) by kickstarter itself but that can't be the reason people are warning others away. The only negative I know is the huge price for shipping but people can evaluate for themselves like I did and choose to pay or not so that can't be it either. It's like one person decided to say the bubble (what bubble?) was going to burst then all these other people started predicting the same doom in unison.

What exactly has happened that people are badmouthing kickstarter? Who has been ripped off? Who feels they have been ripped off? What project have people funded expecting a reward only to have their money taken yet not gotten the reward at the level they sponsored? (All arguments aside that you're not buying anything only making a donation in anticipation of a reciprocal reward.)
