KS is just not my thing. I'm glad I backed the WaW 85 kickstarter, but I am not mentally predisposed to waiting 6-8 months to get my game after I paid for it.

As far as I remember, you don't get charged until the target is reached. Obviously, it will take them some time to produce the game and get it ready for shipment - THAT'S where you need to be careful. My company did a KS for a Napoleonic naval game and the supplier totally screwed us up. It took over a year to recover and send out all the orders - we lost a small fortune! The supplier got away without loss. I won't get involved with KS any more (as a buyer or a seller) but P500 seems OK - it does seem that Commands & Colors:Napoleonics Expansion 8 is taking forever but, again, you don't get charged until close to despatch.

I started with nothing and still have most of it left

Yeah, P500 won't charge you until they begin shipping.

It's technically more like P700 in that they need about 700 copies pledged, but still.

Got my copy yesterday. After a brief look through the box, I was very pleased with the components.

Quick pic while at home for lunch. I need to setup the second table so the map will fit.

I thought I read there was a delay. You mean I may get this soon?  :D

Yes, but you can't play it without getting written permission from us first  ;)

Actually, you have to bring it here and then go sit outside while I inspect it to be sure it's free of the 'rona.


I actually don't really like games.

LICK YOUR COUNTERS!

QUICKLY!

After you clip the counters, of course.

On layout alone this one DEMOLISHES the original.  The rule book is a pleasure.
