      In addition to Lisa’s comments. Im still in 2 minds about dropping this pledge. The longer it goes without ample reviews or draft rules that can be viewed the more I lean towards dropping my pledge. Its all good and well to have a campaign that seems to be running well. However, it will loose backers if they don’t deliver on the question of reviews and draft rules.

    2. Dean Strohm 4 minutes ago

      I do agree about the importance of Exclusive to us the backers. I do like the idea of each add-on coming with an Exclusive. It doesn't have to be part of the add-on, it just comes with it. Like an extra playable character!

      Lisa in my opinion you're right all the way ! Exclusive is important for us. Not all but some.
      Right now it just feel like we're not that important ...
      I will pledge and buy some adds I'm like mark on this point.
      I think we have for our money but we want a little something to feel unique and important into this campaign!
      Like perceval said : On voudrait être considéré en tant que tel !

      Be bad Be Orcs! Good nightmare for all nonorcs!

      @Lisa: a very good point. We could use more exclusives.

      What's more they wisely added in the beggining of the campaign page what we've unlucked so far, if there were a few nice thing with the KS exclu logo on them, then people would get stuck on it and think, I don't want to risk loosing that, and it would allow other "for all" strech goals to be unlocked

      Lisa Henrion about 1 hour ago

      @Mark-Ders agreed, I don't have the self restraint that you have, I can't keep myself from wanting many more different games, or having something unique thanks to KS, so what would make me want to have those add-ons would be if they specialised it just for us for THIS campaign, by adding for example 1 extra mini KS exclusif for each add-on, now THAT would really make it worth pledging now and not wayting for retail, and be a sign from them of appreciation for our funding
      That's what I like about their pledges in the first place, one extra expansion and one extra mini just for us, they should put more of those, because actually I haven't seen KS exclusive anywhere else for now (correct me if I'm wrong), no strech goal exclusive or anything, so of course we pledge to get a little more, but it would draw even more attention if we pledge because otherwise we would miss out on a 1 chance opportunity :)
      Play on FOMO that's how you raise immediat funds!

    7. Mark-Ders about 1 hour ago

      @Lisa: understood. For me it's about getting a great game with a loads of extra's to play with and great miniatures to paint. I only pledge for a few games each year, but I go in full or almost full with each of them. Each backer has a different approach to the campaign :)

    8. Mark-Ders about 1 hour ago

      @Graham: good question and I think these will come pre-assembled. It should be answered by MAZE GAMESof course :)

      Lisa Henrion about 1 hour ago

      But I don't have those 400$ and I don't want to go that far, I'd rather they focus on getting more people in than getting those already in to pay more, at least not that early in the campaign but maybe for more experienced backers it is usual to pay 400$ on one project, I'd rather have 3 successfull big pledge with no add-ons on 3 different games than having 300% of one game that could have gotten and given more by chosing another way

      Maybe one day I will buy those add-ons in shops in France, but not for this campaign that's almost sure, since there will be more of them, and the more there are the less I will be willing to add, because if I get one I want all of them

    10. Mark-Ders about 1 hour ago

      @Brian: I get that €25 for two mini's seems a lot. Perhaps skip that one until you know how much you are willing to pledge at the end of the campaign.

      Graham Pates about 1 hour ago

      I have gone all in on this, with both add-ons, but I dont think I'll be able to add any more! The new expansion looks pretty good but i am a bit unsure its value for money, only two minatures! This now becoming pretty expensive and pushing my gaming budget. I love the card game so am pretty confident there is a good game coming here. Perhaps a new pledge level might ease the burden if a good price point can be reached.
      One question I have that hasn't been answered (I think) is are the minitures fully assembled? I am not sure I want to get my plastic glue out for this.

    12. Mark-Ders about 1 hour ago

      @Lisa: I do not quite get why this bothers you. It's pretty normal is these kind of KS campaigns to have a base pack and add-ons. Usually my pledges go from the basic $100-$120 to $300-$400 at the end. I expect it. The add-ons really help with getting more stretch goals as well.

    13. Missing avatar

      Brian about 1 hour ago

      yeah, 99 ok, I'm not sold on either box though. the one seems ok its just not my subject matter of choice for those necromancers. id rather get an add on of elves, or more humans of different kinds something else. the 2 big guys also don't pull me in. so i think I'm just leaving the add ons out altogether for now.

    14. Missing avatar

      Lisa Henrion about 2 hours ago

      What bothers me is that it's the second add-on that they add, putting as such 50% of game value more than originally promised by the pledges (big pledge 99€+ 2x25€), I do believe that they should put those as strech goals and propose them as add-ons if not unlocked

      I was beginning to think about adding the first add-on on the PM when it hits, but then seeing a second one poput puts me off, really, and the campaign is doing well so I don't think they need to do that now, but well it is their choise, but people wanting to come now will see that it takes 150€ to take all, which means much more if they see $, so they will really think it throug, but 99€ is a good price, what brought me in

      Sigh for me this box is 40 dollars for ... 2 miniatures and some other stuff. But I dunno. I was wondering about price of base game overall but I feel its rude to comment on pricing I dunno. I'm trying to decide if I will back this. I get they are big miniatures... but 40 bucks for 2, I dunno are they 15 dollar minis ?

      Here's a summary of stuff from the comments section here: (updated!)

      Some ideas for stretch goals:
      - Alternate sculpts for all enemy mobs (Gnolls, Soldiers, Rats etc). At least 2 poses per type.
      * Gorbag: we have decided to prioritize new enemies instead of alternate sculpts.
      - Male Gnolls.
      - Elves!
      * Gorbag: The elf territory is not too far away…we might end up crossing it…
      - Coloured illustrations on the cards (I understand why the backs should be colour-coded, but the front should be full-colour imho, and have a consistent lay-out)
      * Gorbag answered: The card quality will definitely be improved! They are definitely a work in progress!
      - 3D furniture (can be 3D cardboard, or plastic if that's doable)
      - More tiles!
      * Gorbag has shown us a few new tiles already!
      - Additional content is always good (scenarios/quests/cards)
      * Gorbag has shown us a few new cards already!
      - Plastic insert in the box for all the components and minis
      - Nice boxes to store everything in that's not in the base game box (stretch goals).
      - Porcs!


      Some questions from the comments section/BGG forum:
      - Do you have any prototype gameplay videos, so we can see how it actually plays? And a rulebook?
      * Gorbag said: we are working on it!
      - Will you do a thorough spell/grammar checking of the English texts, since there seem to be some errors on the main page
      * Gorbag said: Worry not, all of our scrolls will be reviewed by a human native to your language. Of course all the texts of the rulebook and scenarios will be revised by a native translator.
      - How many scenarios/campaigns are in the base game?
      * Gorbag said: We have 10 scenarios in the plans..but..if the Kickstarter campaign goes really really well.. there might be some changes ;)
      - What's the quality of the components? (card thickness/finish, tile thickness, miniature plastic, engraved dice etc?)
      * Gorbag said: Regarding the quality of components we already decided to go with high quality, linen finish cards (the same as the cardgame) and thick cardboard for the tiles. I can confirm the dice are obviously engraved ;) Real Badass Orcs go for quality from the beginning of a campaign just like we did with our first game. Real Orcs don´t need stretch goals for quality upgrades. They already come well equipped for war. :)
      - Please post your rules and other text files such as the cards in an update and/or the BGG files section, so the community can help you spellcheck and perhaps give you feedback/suggestions for improving the readability after translation to English.
      - Will the card game be available / will there be crossovers?
      * Gorbag has told us that the card game can be added in the PM, along with SOME of the addons.
      - Will there be a 5-6 player mode?
      * Gorbag has told us that's not in the plans, but will ask the authors. (Maridess adds a new class to the game, which will bring variety to your games, but is not a 5th player). - Does the game have a solo mode? And how many heroes do you need to play?
      * Gorbag: It is a totally cooperative game, so yes, one single player may manage the whole orc band. For the moment you must play with 4 Heroes at the same time. Since the game is already very well balanced with 4 Heroes we are currently testing a mode where 2 Heroes or even 6 Heroes can enjoy the game. These are not yet guaranteed, but if the tests go well we might be able to add it to the rules.
      - What's the scale of the miniatures?
      * Gorbag: to give you an idea... Humans are slightly bigger than 32mm.
      - Why are the bases square and not round?
      * Gorbag: There is a reason behind our square bases and that is, miniature orientation, which is a really important subject in the game.
      - Why are there so few Exclusives?
      * Gorbag: In order to compensate backers, all Stretch Goals will be done as additional content (not included in the core game sold in shops), but it is true that we didn´t plan a lot of exclusives for this campaign.
      - Will those additional content SG's come in expansion boxes then, to be sold in shops later?
      - Will the core box have room for sleeved cards? (Many inserts become useless if you sleeve the cards)
      - How big are the squares on the tiles?

      Some answers from Gorbag on several subjects:

      Help out with those social media goals!! Goodnight!! >:) For the Horde!

      Salut la compagnie !

      Je trouve l'idée et les figs superbe, mais il faut donc s'attendre à un add-on tousles 3 jours ?
      Pour une campagne qui ne se voulait pas kiloplastique, on s'en rapproche.
      Faut il donc s'attendre à un all in final à plus de 350 € ? On marche sur la tête...
      Pour une boîte initial qui justifie difficilement son prix.
      Désolé de ne pas surfer sur l'euphorie ambiante.
