That's the part I liked! It was nice of him to be encouraging, since he's not in it himself. (And I've been saying this over and over myself, without Haslab experience).
Haslabs do tend to be slower building from what I've heard, so if anyone's dismayed based on Kickstarter patterns, probably a reason to recalibrate a bit.
Not really, the massively successful ones generally fully fund in the first 24 hours. HeroQuest was fully funded and meeting reach goals during their livestream announcement.



Edit: RE international backers (I posted this earlier in another thread)

I have some more hope to offer though, here goes: For the Haslab HISS tank, one of the extras was another figure. They haven't shown the colors yet, just the mold. Hasbro is going to have a vote where they show six different color choices, and let the people who backed it vote. The backer count showing on the US Pulse site is 26,772 (see why I'm not optimistic about having 1,433 currently with HS?) But at Hascon they said there were 29,000 votes being counted, and said it had something to do with international backers. That was before they expanded to more of the EU too.

Can someone in Europe log onto Pulse and check the backer count? I'm logged in in the US and it shows 1,617 right now.

Re: Heroscape 2nd Edition is here!

How about getting a community wide parody video of "the best thing of heroquest is...." with a new person per sentence and hoping it goes viral on YouTube.

The best thing about new Heroscape is.....you can now get high off the fumes while painting all your new miniatures!!!

The best thing about new Heroscape is.....you can build yourself a new house to live with the ruins when the spouse kicks you out for buying more games......and you got yourself a lovely little garden you don't even have to water!!!!

The best thing about new Heroscape is..... It's the exact same dice as Heroquest!!! Huh.... What's up with that?

Upset City Baby.

Everything I’ve read is that Heroquest took a full week to fund.

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

Re: Heroscape 2nd Edition is here!

At the end of the day I will say the Serenity Prayer and come to terms with the fact that Heroscape's renewal is not in my hands alone. If it's meant to come back it will come back. No amount of friends buying 5 set sleeper cells is going to change that. All I can do is buy the 5 sets I am allotted and hope that things work out.

In the meantime I will enjoy the 'scape I already have and look at it as a blessing that this game ever existed in the first place.

Handle origin: I used to film comedy skits with my friends. I didn't want any cursing in them, so I made up new insults, like "dendrik". Then Sir Denrick came out, and the rest is history.

Re: Heroscape 2nd Edition is here!

Finally got around to it. I'm in for one set, and if I can pick up some more work in the next few weeks, maybe (just maybe) that goes up to two.

But if behind the 8000 backers the project is calling for, is really only 4-5K actual people, would that make a retail release viable? Expecting a minority to buy up all the product on the shelves nation wide?

Just spitballing here... I'm sure that 8000 number, plugged into their algorithm, tells them that the game is viable when extrapolated out. The number of unique backers has to matter, doesn't it?
Yes, I can confirm (just tested it) that if you buy multiple sets, each set counts as a backer.

Also, you can purchase/back more than 5. You just have to do it in multiple transactions. I also did it as a guest, so maybe you can't if you're logged in with a profile? If I get anymore sets, and this campaign makes it, I'm going to have to rent out an offsite storage site

It's like football with swords or LARPing without the geeky stuff. In other words, it's awesomely perfect!

Re: Heroscape 2nd Edition is here!

In the US it's 1625 twenty minutes later, so looks like it's displaying the same number.

Re: Heroscape 2nd Edition is here!

According to this article, the Galactus Haslab doubled its backers from 14k to 30k in the last two days of the campaign. I'm not suggesting that's gonna happen here, as this is a totally different situation. Just pointing out that anything could/might not happen, and we probably shouldn't be stressing about numbers till the campaign is in its last couple of hours.

Now, to try and take my own advice

Re: Heroscape 2nd Edition is here!

All the criticism (some justified) aside I won't start to worry until we're 2-3 weeks in and if we're limping along (say, at 'only' 3K).
