No boats. No helicopters. No tanks. No hovercraft. We won't be going down unnecessary roads. Big trucks? We'll have to see what the future holds. We're not ruling them out, but we also are not promising them.

Back-when, it wasn't a problem -- we handled it the same way as the old Time-Life Books series[*]: "Buy only the ones you want." If one didn't need Boat rules, one didn't buy _Boat Wars_. Seems to me that approach is still viable, and gives SJG a better handle on what the buyers want, as well.

That's a great way to look at it. They would have to be able to afford to produce and gamble on each of those though and I'd rather them not lose money.

And yeah, Time-Life Books definitely dates you (and me now!, look what you did!)

Can someone sanity check my math here? I am adjusting my pledge and want to be sure I have at least one of everything game related (but no extras like shirts, additional dice or bases, or more sets of the same vehicle minis). Does this look like the proper "I Want It All" list?

Black Friday Double Ace - $139
Vehicle Guide - $15
Miniature Set 2 - $40
Miniature Set 4 - $40
Playmat 2 - $45
Wrecks - $20

Obviously if one doesn't have one of the Uncle Al special pledge levels, they need to add that item in as well. But otherwise is there anything missing from this?

Thanks!

Life just wouldn't be the same without the Killer RV.

Went ahead and pledged $374, which is the $299 from my earlier "Want It All" calculations, plus another set of the core game. I suspect if I've missed anything I can get it in the Backerkit. Is there anything in the campaign which will definitely NOT be in the Backerkit? Seems like almost everything will be for sale later at store prices regardless.

I had purged hovercraft from my memory. Now I remember those movement rules.

Anybody know a good purveyor of brain bleach?


Seriously, because I'm no fan of sudden charges on my CC, roughly when do you anticipate knowing and charging the domestic shipping charge on the double ace backer level?
