I got the ASOIF and HATE terrain. I suppose I was fortunate in that I had no interest in the fast-moving stuff.

Glad you got what you were looking for too.

I was surprised how quickly some stuff went but then again some of the older KSer things I was looking at probably had way less stock then the newer items.

Out of context, I was trying to figure out why you hate terrain so much. Wasn't sure if it overly impeded cavalry in ASOIF or something.

3d terrain makes ASoIaF miserable to play, but without it the game can indeed aesthetically look kind of board-gamey and bland.

But I am also salty that despite being a huge community builder for the game, and a big fan, that if I happen to miss launch day for a new unit, it is sold out for months and months.

Good luck being a competitive player and trying to track down Neutral Heroes 2, for example.

Guess this is the downside to plastic and not owning the factory like GW does. Something sells out you have to schedule time with the Chinese factory (which is probably booked full months ahead) then wait 6+ weeks for it arrive by ship once it is manufactured. Contrast to metal/resin/restic which you can do yourself.

Yes, I learned early on to pre-order the units I knew I wanted for ASOIF...that was actually a lesson from AT-43.

Yeah, I don't think they have done any reprints of any units to date.

Distribution is awful. Thankfully as a FreeFolk player I can basically always find what I want because it is such a tricky faction to play.
I'm still sad I can't get any of those plastic corpse piles or Weirwood trees.

Apparently, Asmodee have today confirmed to stores that a second print of Umber Great Axes and Black Guard will hit the EU at the end of March. These are units that were short stocked in the UK so that some stores received very limited stock of them. Hopefully they actually release enough stock this time and we can finally get the units.

Reading through the timemachine comments I understand people being upset with what's going on but there were 11k backers. no way more then 5-10% of them were going to get everything they wanted as most people backed for the same 3 games. I think when CMoN saw how many pledges they got for the $1 access pledge (almost 10k backers) they should have killed the KSer and though of a better way and that's from someone who got the one thing I wanted. They clearly could have reprinted KSer exclusives for many of the high demand stuff. Screw the Ebay sellers complaining about that concept. The same group tried to get Monolith to remove old KSer exclusive stuff from BtM as it would devalue what they had and Monolith told them they weren't going to do that. Best thing about that campaign

Well, on top of this was the "unlock" feature of the PM that didn't tell customers who paid (?) that the items they thought they purchased went back into the general pool of available items.

I'll stick to Gloomhaven. The game's a nice change from dice-chucking, the creator doesn't believe in KSE's, and, ironically, I've made good use of my CMON Massive Darkness KS and Black Plague miniatures to bling up this game!

The unlock wasn't supposed to do that, they even stated that it wouldn't -- which is why they took it down. Clearly it's a bigger mess then expected as it's almost 12 hours later and they don't have it back up.

They updated the Timemachine backers that the unlock issue isn't reproducible and probably just a caused by heavy traffic (which is possible and what I originally thought it was before they broke it down). If you're someone who did unlock and noticed anything missing they said to contact support (https://support.cmon.com/hc/en-us) and they'll check to see if anything is missing but in their general checks they didn't see any loss of paid items.


On Wednesday, 22nd, at 9 am EST the Pledge Manager will be reopened to all backers with a Priority Access.
Due to the delay of the Priority Access, all $1 Time Vault backers who are first time backers of a CMON campaign, will be given access to the Pledge Manager system starting on Friday, 24th, at 7 am EST, a little before 48h to compensate the 2 hours that the system was open on Monday for the Priority Access backers.

For the Marvel United Kickstarter backers, we will start right away with not one, but THREE exclusives already added to base pledge! So let’s meet the first of them…

REAL NAME: Clinton Francis Barton / ALIAS: Hawkeye

Trained at an early age in the art of archery, Barton became one of the world's most elite marksmen and put his sharpshooting skills to work as the heroic Hawkeye.

Marvel United is coming to Kickstarter on February 11th 3 pm EST! You can sign up to be notified when that happens here: https://cmon.co/marvel-united

I'm confused as well. The reason for the timemachine was to clear out all that old stuff sitting in a warehouse that they couldn't sell in retail as they were KSer exclusive or due to them closing down their own webstore (which I'm sure their Asmodee contract dictated).

Not really. The cards they're on look like locations with some type of event card maybe. So those are randomly drawn and then you place your character on where they're currently at. There's no traditional board for sure but you need some kind of character token from the looks of it.

I'd show you an example of my theory.....but Disney would shut this site down the secound I posted a pic from Rich Duck Adventures Starring Duck Who's Named After a CXXXXXX DXXXXXX* Character .

*EDIT: Looks like the authour, his likeness and 100% of his works just became trademarks of Disney too....

Marvel United is now live

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cmon/marvel-united?ref=ksr_email_user_watched_project_launched

base game starts with 14 chibis (3 exclusive) and the expansion with 4

there is NO pledge level to get them both, you have to manually add the money for the expansion (I forsee confused and angry comments)

Getting stuff across oceans is expensive, and delivery gets more expensive the worse the infrastructure is. I'm surprised they even ship to Africa at all.

Possibly 40 USD shipping (to Europe) for a 60 USD pledge? That's rough... The game needs to add way more content before I'm even tempted to join...
