Just looked at this because I got a email about it.

There is currently a staggering 17 KS exclusive heroes/villains - and a WHOLE expansion that is also marked KS exclusive. If I had any interest in this at all that alone would kill it. Why with something with as potentially broad a reach as a Marvel game (currently the most popular movies in the world for a good decade now) and literally dump half of it in the garbage for anyone who might have been interested but missed the Kickstarter,

Think of it as fodder for the next Time Machine Kickstarter by CMON...

ANKH teaser dropped yesterday:



What’s next for CMON on Kickstarter? Well, we think you already know.

Ever since it was announced last GenCon, fans have been eagerly awaiting the next installment in the legendary saga that began with Blood Rage and continued with Rising Sun. The same creative team, including game design by Eric Lang, art by Adrian Smith, and sculpts by Mike McVey, are proud to bring you ANKH: Gods of Egypt, coming soon to Kickstarter!

The gods that rule over Egypt can no longer share the devotion of the people. One by one, the gods must fall into oblivion, until only one will remain. Spread your forces across the land, build monuments to establish your dominion, reshape the land to your advantage, gain followers to increase your powers and get the support of powerful guardians. As the sands soak the blood in conflicts decided by both strength and cunning, each god will use their unique power to climb to the top of the devotion ladder. Will you be the one to achieve life eternal?

It is also interesting to notice that this week marks the anniversaries of the Blood Rage and Rising Sun campaigns, which launched on March 2nd 2015 and March 7th 2017, respectively. A fitting celebration!

I'll be honest, the video didn't wow me. It looks like another "big giant guys that you'll never use in another game plus 10 copies of a single minion sculpt" kind of game.

I'm sure the gameplay will be good, but I don't have a regular enough gaming group to get as much enjoyment from good games as I get from good miniatures. Hopefully it will deliver on both! (Pretty confident it will)

They're really pissing off the Time Machine people as no confirmed deliveries have happened on that outside of 2-3 in New Zealand in the past month nor are they updating it outside of saying (shipping is happening everyone!) weeks ago.

Since they don't have a web store anymore I figure they don't have a warehouse team and this is another mess like their online store closing sale which took months to deliver.

Still. I love the Eric Lang area control games but might skip due to how indifferent CMoN is treating backers now days

CMON seems to be determined to burn any good will they have from their customers at every opportunity.
Time Machine fulfillment is leaving a lot to be desired.
That being said, after the months of silence, when they do deliver it is a good game with good miniatures. You just have to know what you are getting.
Both the game and the miniatures for Song of Ice and Fire are really outstanding for example. You just have to preorder everything you want months in advance to have any chance of getting it, which can be frustrating, as stock sells out lighting fast and they don't seem to be in any hurry to do reprints.

@Gallahad, sadly, that has been true of pretty much every CMON game. My personal favorites are Blood Rage, Dark Age, HATE and Smog, but I also have a soft spot for Rivet Wars.

Aside from Blood Rage, the rest is just not available, and Time Machine means that I finally get a copy of HATE...whenever the hell they ship.

RIVET WARS!

I'm still sad we never saw another entry for that system...

They put the Ruska minis on Shapeways and did a pdf of the rules but that seems to be the last of it.

http://www.rivetwars.com/docs/RW_Ruska_Core_Cards.pdf

https://www.shapeways.com/shops/superrobotpunch

from November 2018

What is going on with Rivet Wars? Here is the UPDATE.

Is RW dead? No, since Super Robot Punch owns Rivet Wars we can make or release any RW product we choose. Right now, CMoN is not going to publish future RW products, so we would need to find a new publishing partner to continue to release RW in a box, with minis, printed manuals etc. If anyone has contacts, suggestions or is a publisher, maybe we can find a new home for Rivet Wars.

For now though we’d like to give folks a chance to get the miniatures and rules that they’ve been asking for. Let’s get the Ruska, Ottoman, and maybe some ships...into the fight!

Miniatures - I’m uploading the 3D files to Shapeways. In this way you can pick models you’re interested in and have Shapeways print and send them to you. This has some drawbacks but it gets the models out there and it’s a la carte so if you want to get a Rusk KV-12 tank and only the tank, that’s all you have to order. I’m not sure how fast these will come online, but all the base Ruska units are up there now.

Rules/Stats - We have a lot of rules and stats for the new models. There are also some exciting additions to the rules like Line of Sight and Cover. Really simple but effective and it adds more tactics to the game. This was to be part of the Ruska Ottoman campaign. I’ll compile the stats and rules and release them in digital form as PDFs. This will allow anyone to download the information and get using the new rules and minis.

Other stuff - I’ve been working on a video game version of Rivet Wars. Right now it’s looking pretty great and could hopefully tie in to the board game and some new ideas. Just another way to Get in the Fight!

So what happened with CMoN? For years we’ve been discussing the expansions for Rivet Wars but at this time RW does not fit into CMoN’s publishing plans. They are a great team and made Rivet Wars a reality and I’d love to work with them again if the chance ever presented itself.

Right now I hope this allows folks to get their hands on some of the Ruska, Ottoman and rules that we have planned for and created. A lot of time and work went into these new factions and we want to see people enjoying them. Hopefully we’ll learn a bit as people explore this new content and this may lead to a future release or kickstarter or something else. Thank you all for your support and interest and for getting in the fight!

CMON expo cancelled.

"CMON Expo is the few days each year that our diehard fans can come to Atlanta to meet, discuss, play CMON all weekend long. It lets our fans take a glimpse into all the exciting projects we’ve been working on and spend the entire weekend with us. This kind of celebration is part of our DNA since the company first started.

This year, we had a very difficult decision to make. The Coronavirus pandemic is spreading at an alarming rate, and most governments are asking their citizens to refrain from big public gatherings. With a heavy heart, CMON has decided, for the safety of our employees, our guests and our attendees, to cancel CMON Expo 2020.

We look forward to see you again soon. In the meantime stay safe and happy gaming!"

Most of the expansion content for Rivet Wars is on sale very cheap at minature market (including stuff that had apparently sold out during the last CMON firesale) so if you've got and enjoyed the base game it's worth checking out

MM sale ends tomorrow, and they also still have Wrath of Kings sets available.

I'm pretty sure the game's finally dead, but the sculpts look really good, if you're looking for something beyond generic fantasy.

Starter Sets for four out of the five factions plus rulebook will cost about $50 for 100 miniatures.

This is Anubis, the God of death, embalming, and tombs. Some of Anubis' main roles were guiding the souls to the underworld, and weighing their hearts against the truth, in the form of an ostrich feather. Only hearts lighter than a feather would ascend.

Ankh: Gods of Egypt is coming soon to Kickstarter! Stay tuned.




Now on to the Egyptian mythology lesson before the launching of Ankh.

This god radiates light wherever it goes. Who is this?

I hope they delay the launch of this for a month or two. It’s harder to justify a pledge for a board game when people are shanking each other for toilet paper.

I would only back for a dollar right now if it's before June. Even with the possibility of stimulas checks I won't be spending money on games for the forceable future. I've got plenty and need to make sure other needs are taken care of first.

generally they start previews only like 2-3 weeks before the launch date. So I'd say early April.

ANKH: GODS OF EGYPT HITS KICKSTARTER ON APRIL 14TH
Apr 01, 2020
A Note to All Our Backers, Supporters and Fans,

We are thrilled to finally be launching Ankh: Gods of Egypt. It’s a game years in the making, and we’ve pulled out all the stops to make this campaign our best and most exciting yet. We also want to acknowledge what a difficult period of time it is for many people around the world. Choosing to postpone or not was a tough decision, but based on all the factors, including the many messages we received on social media, we decided to move forward with the campaign as planned. We don’t know when the world will go back to normal but debuting a game so many have been waiting for so long feels like the correct path forward. To that end, we will be keeping the pledge manager open as long after the campaign as possible to accommodate those who would like extra time to finalize their pledges.

Also know that we will continue to release as much exciting, time-filling content as we can through our website and social media. So far, the reaction to new Zombicide and Massive Darkness scenarios, the new Beta Game Modes for A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniature Game (which you can fin here under Public Playtest Files), and the full XenoShyft game in Print and Play has been amazing, and our goal is to keep you entertained during this difficult time.

Thank you all for joining us on our latest adventure,

The Entire CMON Team


I wish they were more specific about how long they're prepared to leave the PM open, 'as long as we can' could fit the supershort period they've had with the recent Marvel game (probably not, but you never know), but I'm sure i'll give my token $1 to buy in and see

CMON doesn't own the rivet wars IP, the creator of it does. He was trying to shop around to a new publisher to reboot the game a year or two ago but it seems there was no interest.

Dang, I'm probably going to have to miss out on Ankh given current economic climate. I just can't justify the likely $300 it will take to buy in given potential unemployment looming on the horizon.
Been saving up for it, but now I'll just keep that in the rainy day fund.

You think this one will have a $300 'all in' price?

Ouch.

Rising Sun was only $150 for all in (this doesn't include art book, playmat and similar things) so $300 seams high. But at the same time I'm sure CMoN will find ways to charge more for this ala Zobmicide 2.0 as it steams like CMoN from 3 years ago is long dead. I'd expect a minimum of $200 with a $120 starting price with maybe all gameplay elements going for $250 before you have extras like art books and the playmat. But $250 doesn't seam very likely but you never know.

Oof. Right while the Aussie dollar is at a ten year low to the US dollar. This won't be pretty, but I've been waiting for it too long. Barring the potential for a third installment of Medieval Zombicide, it'll likely be my last CMON Kickstarter.

That's almost always the case, no? I've seen nothing to indicate otherwise.

Maybe $300 is high. Maybe $200+ shipping. I feel like there will be at least one big expansion plus a handful of small buys ala Death May Die or HATE.
