Have you guys backed any Kickstarter games? What are your thoughts on the whole thing?

I feel like I've missed out but at the same time, every game I look at, by the time I convert to CAD and add shipping, they are more than I would ever consider paying...
I've only backed one thing on Kickstarter, and it was very recently for Champions of Midguard. I got the expansions (which the KS was for), and added the base game as an option since I never had it. You're right, what initially started as a $40USD expansion kickstarted, ended up costing me around $190 CDN....which I kind of regret now........it all added up quickly.......adding in the base game, then a few of the cool upgraded components, upgraded neoprene player mat, shipping and converstion....jeez. It got out of hand quick :(

That being said, it was a game i've been looking into for a while, and I dont' back any and every game. I stayed away from Rising Sun and Gloomhaven, because I know it would never get played with my lifestyle and friends available to play with lol.

Yea, probably. I have the first one, the second set (base+expansion) and the third expansion..I think...I've never played them. I played Black Plague, which was supposed to be a better version anyway, and I hated it. I am keeping my Last Night on Earth + expansions though.

Is that your Prison Outbreak set that I've been tempted by? ;) lol.

I personally haven't played the regular game but am more interested in Black Plague / Wulfsburg / Green Horde.

Yup.. Exactly my fear... But at the same time, if it is a one time deal for something you really want, then it may be worth it. Have you played it yet? Another game on my list that I have yet to play/own. :)

Hmmm.. Not your post then. Someone on kijiji is selling Prison Outbreak + 3 addons.

How much are you looking to get for your collection?

I have Potion Explosion, Stockpile, and Spyfall. They are all good games, although I think codenames has replaced spyfall for me.

Another KS, Sagrada, just fell on my porch today!
You mentioned in a previous post that you picked up Terraforming Mars - have you given it a whirl yet?

Yea, played it a few times. I got some upgrades too like the acrylic overlays and acrylic counters. It's fun with some groups. There WAS one 2p game that dragged like forever as it was my buddy's first time playing and he preferred to get more cards and it was extremely difficult to move on the common goals alone.

Happy International Tabletop Day!

Alright....here's an updated photo album of my collection as of today. I think I have everything I own in the album, although in hindsight I should have put put the Hive Pocket a little better. Happy to add 2 extremely hard to find games today - Anachrony+Exosuits expansion and the grand-daddy Gloomhaven!

Wow! I'm jealous!

Your Gloomhaven, was that from the second printing? It came already? I just backed it myself. My first KS. :P

And did anyone do anything for ITTD? I was planning to check out Boardgame Bliss but due to unforseen circumstances, was unable to.
