Wait a minute, wait a minute ........
I think I detect confusion here. Error on my part, I think. I'm confusing Schlock Mercenary Capital Offensive, the board game, which I received long ago, with Planet Mercenary, which hasn't shipped yet because it's still being finished. When I got an update on Capital Offensive so long after getting it, I crossed it up in my mind with Planet Mercenary.
Panic over. Apologies for muddying the waters.
(Correction, I just found my original receipt, make that $75 backer.)
HELP! In response to the most recent email update, I'm a $60 backer and haven't' received my shipment, and I'm *trying* to find the backerkit survey to make certain I filled it out (I'm 99.9% certain I did), but I can't find a link for it anywhere.
Got mine and it looks great. I noticed there's a fair bit of variation in the size of the wooden tokens. Mine aren't even all exactly the same size. Though it is clearly too late for us KS folk, I would certainly recommend that the token ID sheet and reference card be included in the box with future copies of the game. There are a lot of tokens and map bits (which is good) but little to no explanation of what it all is (not so good). There needs to be a good ID sheet of everything in the game and (where needed) some rules for each bit. As this KS fades into the history of the game, new buyers will greatly appreciate having that info from the beginning.
Please post an update when the games are all shipped. I've been awaiting arrival in New Jersey, so just want to know when I should contact you all to see if it is lost. Thanks for all your work!
I just finished uploading a Learning Game instructional video to YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch…
It was filmed and recorded in my hotel room in a Mississippi country location, so fun! Ignore a bit of the graininess of the images, old iPhones still only work so well for photos.
This video, coupled with the rulebook, should make learning the Learning Game easy. A Token Reference Sheet and an Equipment Reference Sheet are coming shortly.
I got mine today, minus the promos. Oh well, I'm excitedly unpacking it right now, and can't wait for the promo items to come in.
@Wolfshead: If you find a suitable replacement source, please post a link to it. I've set the sticker/token mess aside since trying to cut them down is almost certain to end up somewhat messy.
Mine was waiting when I got home today. First glance looks very nice, other than the noted wooden disk issue. I will have to see what I can find for replacements.
I got mine and I love it! I tried the Learning Game and I had a great time. Getting all the tokens and board pieces out and sorted took a while, but it's totally worth it. The little baggies that come with the game were so handy and worked so well I was almost more excited about that than the game its self. I'm looking forward to roping people into playing with me.
Mine arrived today. Lovely
Awesome! Got mine today, and I was confused by the overabundance of stickers. I figured I'd wait and it would be clarified, and I wasn't disappointed!
Thank you Walter for being the catalyst. If you have any further such abilities, let us know!
Thanks to Kevin and Howard (and APE) for the dedication. I did the easy part by introducing you two; you guys did the hard part.
It's a beautiful production. Glad to have had a small part in it.
