Re: Age of Annihilation - Backer Trend and Discussion

Ozzy-Scaper,

As has been mentioned in the other thread, on BGG, and originally on youtube (I don't do social media; but I've been cross posting it like crazy) portals have now been opened for the UK, soon for the EU, and hopefully later for others like Australia. Apparently Hasbro needs to make arrangements with local companies for this, but its been started, so hang in there!

They have thrown out ideas and concept sketches, but I doubt they've designed any units. They have said the set they're taking orders for now isn't complete and the army cards aren't finalized, I doubt they're putting in serious work for expansions to a product that might not even be produced. I'm curious if there is any work going on now to finish the units for the new set, or if there is a freeze until the campaign ends.
FWIW some of the play testers have said they’ve already done play tests with units for future expansions. While this may seem odd given they have not finished the designs in this set, my guess would be they have some strong synergy with units in this set and so they’re being designed and tested together to make sure they work right.

I think this also shows that AH has a lot of faith that this will be successful.

This is awesome support, stoked on this community.
This is a really good start in just the first few days which is encouraging and it seems to be steady in growth every time I check back. I do think this thing can really blow up. So much potential here and hopefully they can capitalize on the strong start.

The picture below should help explain why I like Heroscape. It's the kind of toy I played with as a kid. (I'm surprised Ken Ham hasn't tried to reprint this. lol)



Especially the modular terrain aspect of it.



The above models represents less than half of the complete collection, which I had (complete), fully assembled, painted, with all the bases connected, spread out on the basement floor.

Fortunately, they included this, so kids didn't get the "wrong" idea.
Wow that is freaking awesome. A little before my time so not surprised I have never heard of it. Good stuff.

We'll give Hasbro a few more weeks to figure it out, but if they don't, see the link in my signature regarding international shipping.

Look at the leftmost blue dot, it was updated 4-5 hrs ago (if I’m understanding the graph correctly).

Indeed, I update daily a number of times manually, and that file is embedded in the first post for easy reference. I update when I wake up, before I go to bed, and a few times a day as I have time. When I have some more time this weekend and we have a full week of the campaign I'm going to change the linear fit to remove the initial ramp at release.

Re: Age of Annihilation - Backer Trend and Discussion

1800 backers. This is going much steadier than I anticipated. Still though, we're not even 25% of the way there

Re: Age of Annihilation - Backer Trend and Discussion

I'm happy there was less of a drop off than I was expecting, yeah. 1200 more in these next two days to keep us on pace with the Heroquest funding, so it'd have to be a pretty huge Thursday and Friday, but so long as the pace stays steady, I think it'll be OK. Even getting to 2000 by the end of the first week will feel decent, IMO.

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

Re: Age of Annihilation - Backer Trend and Discussion

Getting to 1800 last night implies we are picking up speed, but I doubt we will hit 4k until another week or two.

Picking up speed compared to what? First day (as with most crowdfunders) was still by far the biggest day for backers.
