@Greg If we get to the $355k stretch goal, then one pack would provide exactly the right amount for those with the Delux version. Two minions free, plus five from each pack equals seven.
Thanks for the quick answer! However, now I have a follow-up question. If you might need as many as 7 of a minion (even if only rarely -- play a game enough, and even rare situations are bound to happen from time to time), then why do the minion packs only come with 5? If someone buys 1 pack, they will either be 1 or 2 minions short (depending on if they get the free bonus minion at their backer level), and if they buy 2 packs, they'll be 3-4 over. This feels like hotdogs and hotdog buns. >_>
@Greg The minion pieces are just fancy substitutes for the minion hex pieces (or fancy holders that you can slide the hex tokens into, that's still being discussed) that are purely for aesthetic reasons. They are in no way required. However, if you do like them a lot more than tokens it's possible to get enough that you can always use them. Jasco has said that 7 is the most of one minion you would ever need a token for, and only in very specific situations. They said 3-4 minions should be enough if you always want a minion, but if you're fine using the hex tokens when there's lots of minions on the board there's nothing wrong with that.
Forgive me if this was explained in the gameplay video and I just somehow missed it, but how will the minion game pieces be used during a game (as opposed to the minion hex pieces that were shown in the video), and what purpose will having multiples of the same minion serve?
Heh, can't wait to see the Rush & Roll card sleeves~ :3
@Batoideus The sleeves and the golden megaman are minions as well. Didn't that gold megaman seem a little fishy? A little too good to be true? And then there was that other gold megaman. And that third one stole my sandwich and put it into a sleeve.
But who watches the watcher?
"From now until the $355,000 stretch goal, every unlock is going to be a new minion miniature added to the game"
I believe you mean $340,000, after that we have sleeves and a gold Mega Man. Unless things are about to be updated on the main page to include more minions =)
You ever get that feeling...somebody's watching you?
ah! its watching me!
