You will be happy to know that more videos are coming. I saw a new one yesterday that should be posted today or tomorrow, and we'll have even more before the close of the Kickstarter campaign.

I think I see where I can add $80 to my pledge.
Important note: You will be short by $5. The add-on prices are listed on the page; Minis Set 2 is a $40 add-on and Playmat #2 is a $45 add-on.

McCloud asks if there will be any Motorcycle 'pawns' available to shoot at with later add on , or expansion set ?

He is trying to persuade others in his family to agree to investigating , and favorite aspect of games them hunting Cycle Gangs .

Had a quick flick through these pages & could see anything on cycles . Can not check Facebook at moment , as homebound & off Wi-Fi away from library . Pay-as-I-go spare phone has my FB app on it , but no data allowance to check that way .

So... as someone who already has one of the high-level pledges (yes... I'm one of those two) and would like to get multiple copies of the game and the various add-ons, is there any way to take advantage of the Cyber-Monday deal short of making another KS account? (I'm essentially thinking of an I want it all again add-on).

There are no cycles at this time. If the Kickstarter project does well, we'll explore cycles in the future.

The Cyber Monday offer is limited to the single reward level.

Thanks very much.

There is no $50 two-player add-on. The only official add-ons are those listed on the page. If the list is updated with new add-on options, we'll announce those in a project update.
Wait, what about spending an extra $51 at the end of the Kickstarter for a two-player version to gift to someone? Will that be an option or not?

This [a version without miniatures] will not be an option.
More the pity. I am not a business man, but that seems like a missed opportunity — should you make it to B&N/Target. But that demographic opportunity is years out anyway.

Thanks for catching my math error! But adding money later is no big deal, correct? At the very least, I would need to add shipping cost anyway. Or do I need to increase my pledge now in order to spend it later at the end of the Kickstarter?

Hopefully, if you choose to purchase the new game, you will find its more casual nature means you can find time to play. For us, I wonder if making it less of an event to play would make us less likely to get together. Guess that's one way to solve that four player limitation.
Sorry, I didnít mean to offend. Nothing wrong with 6hrs of straight gaming! It is just if I have that kind of block of time, I would use for an RPG.

Thanks for your detailed response Frumious!

That spreadsheet is a great service to the community! Thank you for that. I had actually pulled some numbers from it before you even mentioned it!

Please add a row that totals the savings one gets at the various pledge levels. At the $137/$140 levels, backers do very well with the bonus swag. But I don’t think the $75 level adds any value over the $51 level (with buying the add-ons later)? Can that be right?
