Just got an e-mail saying that retail copies will be available soon, but it also mentioned that a second Kickstarter run has been announced.

I'm wondering if would be better to just wait for the second Kickstarter. Will the two be significantly different? Any improvements planned?

The email mentioned 250 copies for the US. I have a feeling that even if I tried, I'd have to wait anyway for the 2Nd printing.

I didn't know about a second kickstarter until you mentioned it. As of now, only the wooden fences and the corrupted T-Rex are KS exclusives, so I don't think you'd miss out on much if you bought a retail copy. If they'd start tweaking the game, it depends on what they'll add. If anything, it would be great if they'd tackle the runaway leader issue...

The wooden fences are the one piece that constantly get complimented in my game. They really are a cool component. I hope that a non wooden fence would still work? what would they do? tile?

I’ve asked about the fences before and I was told they are in fact included in the box. The corrupted T-Rex meeples were the only KS exclusive item.

Yes the email says it includes all stretch goals, including fences.

Buy now or wait until everything is sold out to find out more about the 2nd Kickstarter. Huh. Bad timing.

Very minor changes. A couple typos made it through on the first edition that doesn’t really affect gameplay but we definitely want to correct. The biggest change is that the rulebook is getting an overhaul to improve clarity. We are currently looking into ways of offering this for existing owners of the game as well.

That's odd... The Kickstarter page has the fences labelled very clearly as Kickstarter exclusive. Did the creators change their mind?

I don't think of this sale as "retail." This is the creators selling off remaining copies directly, and thus it makes total sense they'd effectively be KS versions, right?

You should definately have the German rulebook checked, as well. When preparing my German player aids, I discovered at least three issues where things were plain wrong (endgame scoring rules, several facility tiles).

Also, are you planning any rules tweaks (or optional rules) re the runaway leader issue discussed at length in another thread?

I wasn't surprised that I wasn't able to get one of these products today, but I was disappointed that I had to enter all my personal details including credit card details before receiving the rejection.

Curious about when shipping happens for this purge of existing copies. Is it now since copies are in-hand? Thanks!

Same here. Was lucky enough to score one of the 200 copies for the US market. Hope it ships soon.

Apropos of this final sale - why could I not "add on" the corrupted T-Rexes to the retail box order? I was all set to buy them but have zero interest in doing a separate transaction for a bag of meeples. :/

Also, I assume these are shipping out basically immediately?

I was lucky enough to get one of the available 200 copies for the US. They were just about sold out last time I checked. There was still 9 copies available. Can't wait to receive and play this game.

I was able to. Not sure why you couldn't. Maybe you skipped over the add-on portion?

Are you sure you didn't switch your whole pledge over to the meeples? That's what it was forcing me to do. :/

After the option to change your pledge, there was a separate section for add-ons. Although I passed on it anyway.
