The City of Nothing

Worth checking out Update #2 of the campaign, they talk to the original producers about the public domain status

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cmon/night-of-the-living-dead-a-zombicide-game/posts/2707800

(TL;DR - Only the 1968 copy of the film is public domain. Romero/Image Ten had always maintained the rights to the images and likeness of the principal cast members too, making it near impossible for anyone else to bootleg for profit. The 2016 restoration is considered a new work by the Copyright Office, and therefore not in the public domain.)

CMoN is teasing an announcement for what's probably a new KSer.

What's behind the vault door? All will be revealed tomorrow in this never before seen campaign!

Speculation is that it's a Zombicide tie-in to Monolith's Beyond Monolith game system. IIRC, Monolith announced tie-ins with Zombicide and Cthulhu Wars.

EDIT: Whoops! Wrong about that. "Spin Master Games and CMON are proud to present Marvel United, our next Kickstarter campaign - stay tuned to our channels for more information!

Odd that they would announce a tie in with a game that hasn't even gone to KSer itself yet.

Element really seem to get the short end of the stick from CMON/ Asmodee. My go to for ASOIAF is Zatu games as they let you pre order and then deliver upon release, as invariably stock levels on release are low and quickly sell out to go AWOL for months. In the UK the Nights Watch starter has not been available for 10+ months odd.

With Zatu just make sure you don’t order more than one different order item together. I have been having issues with having two separate preorder items, one was delayed so their policy is what until they have all stock in. By the time the second item was in stock they had sold out of the first item (they didn’t hold back my preordered stock). So in a limbo where I need two in demand items to be in stock at the same time before they will send me my order. It’s worth paying extra for postage by ordering each item individually just to make sure you actually get the order.

Ahh good advice but just ordered some stuff plus the Targaryian Set - ah well - crossed fingers

Same. There's a pretty big market for it and this probably will reach a broader appeal for these types of games then what they've had in the past (assuming a SDE, AQ style game).

Quite the license for CMoN to grab and Spin Master is a pretty large company that has some licenses for TMNT, Star Wars, My Little Pony, Mickey Mouse.

Very good point Aeneades, sorry for not mentioning that earlier Mr Morden. I ordered the Baratheon and Targaryen starters in separate orders for just that reason.

looking at their facebook Spinmaster seem to have a bunch of Marvel games coming, so I wonder if they've got the licence and are effectively subcontracting the game to CMON who provide the minis expertise

That's my thought as well. Looking at Spinmaster games they're pretty much party and kids games. Teaming up with CMoN is good for them for trying to enter more complex games and open up CMoN to a potential new audience.

Could be a licensing restriction or, of course, an attempt to distinguish themselves from other Marvel games on the market.

I'm surprised we even have so many of them, including the various Marvel card games: Legendary, VS, FFG's new card game, Munchkin, Dice Masters, etc.

Just seen that Spin Master also took over the DC comics Toy and Game licence from Mattel and started to reveal them this week. I wouldn’t be surprised if they launched a DC version in the future.

It reminds me of the Funko Strategy Game.
The success of Funko could be the entire reason for this, and an attempt to capture a larger, mainstream market share for CMON.
And a larger hobby market share for SpinMaster.

This is an easy pass. Still waiting for Ankh.

Same ditto, but here's a retailer's take. : http://www.thegeekedgods.com/raining-pops-makes-pop-vinyls-popular/
And a fan's. : https://www.reddit.com/r/NoStupidQuestions/comments/81lnfy/what_is_the_appeal_of_funko_pop_characters/

Personally, I prefer Funko's Rock Candy line. Easy to find an inexpensive collectible, but better looking. Doesn't hurt that they're female characters.

Gonna pass as well. $150+ for the Car Wars KS, and a friend has the FFG Marvel card game. Spent enough during the holidays...!

Timeliness. They have product for people to buy in that window when they're super excited about something before that excitement is replaced by something else. In an era dominated by meme of the week attention spans, Funko will sell you a small reminder of that one random character from that episode you care about while you still care about it.

I don't own any, but I get the appeal from years of wanting a toy of something and seeing one released a year later when I no longer have that compulsion.
