Re: Age of Annihilation - Backer Trend and Discussion

I'm not sure who on the Avalon Hill team might see this, but I've seen Craig and members of the War Council pop into the forums occasionally . . . I know that most of us fans are just armchair quarterbacking at this point (only because we care ), but rather than pretend I know what I'm talking about, I'll instead just point to a guy who does actually know what he's talking about.

No single person has made more content about how to crowdfund board games successfully than Jamey Stegmaier (designer/publisher of Scythe, Viticulture, Charterstone, Euphoria, Tapestry).

His compendium page of all his lessons and insights from his many Kickstarters can be found here.
https://stonemaiergames.com/kickstarter/

And you may be thinking, surely the time to read lessons about how to run a successful board game crowdfunding campaign is not during the campaign.

Well, yes. It may be a little late to read Jamey's "45 Kickstarter Lessons to Read Before You Launch".

But he does have a blog post called "The Top 10 Ways to Address the Mid-Campaign Slump". Some ideas may not apply due to constraints, but there may be opportunities that were overlooked. We know y'all are workin' hard, and we appreciate it!

Re: Age of Annihilation - Backer Trend and Discussion

If Hasbro placed and keep all these constraints, it doesn’t come off as Hasbro caring much about their customer base or success of their product line and shows even less support for their creative/design team. That’s cool. If that’s what they want to do, that’s on them. Unfortunately, the ones that get hurt the most are the blood, sweat and tears team, not the bar graph and gaffe team.

EU is still overpriced. If they do not match US prices, this is a big problem for my group of players.

Re: Age of Annihilation - Backer Trend and Discussion

Have they offered an option for Australia yet?

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

Yes, through a third party, though it is quite a bit more expensive than the US price.

So no indication that they'll be offering it directly, then?

I believe it's like $800-something when I looked at it, which is, yeah, not going to get many backers.

I believe they've clarified that the partnership is how it will be available in Australia. I'm curious if it would be cheaper to have it shipped to someone in the states and then buy a shipping label for that person to slap on the box and forward it to an Australian from there. I'm curious if there's a service that does that; I know there's a service in Germany that does that for the EU.

Re: Age of Annihilation - Backer Trend and Discussion

new images uploaded upon the Haslab page!

It's too bad that this was done so late into the campaign that it won't make much of a dent, but hopefully it does start to turn a few undecideds

Re: Age of Annihilation - Backer Trend and Discussion

They just changed a handful of images, that's not much of an update.

They didn't embed the gameplay video or add any kind of explanation that would attract someone new to the game.

Note that the update is currently pending, and the new images in the slideshow are just the first part of it.

That's good. I'll check out the new cards while we wait for it to go up.
