Yeah, the minis are sweet! And if I had another use for them, it might be worth backing just for the minis. As far as the game goes, I have at least 2 guys that I know of in my game group that are backing it, so I'll get to play it.

Right next to Saratoga. About 25-30 minutes away from lake George.

Here's the speculation thread I started on bgg on what the final surge may bring us from CMON for Rising Sun, if you want to see what others think, and join in the fun:

Cool, that's pretty up there. We drove up that way from Albany to go to Six Flags about 7 years ago when my current wife and twin daughters went to see my oldest graduate high school. She and her fiancee go up your way and Lake George on occasion in the summer.

Re: Kickstarter: What game(s) are you currently Kickstarting

There is a great Veterans Museum in Saratoga where they have some of the most unusual early Civil War fancy militia uniforms from New York Regiments, and other cool stuff. They have the coat that Ellmer Ellsworth, a friend of Abraham Lincoln's and the founder of the Zouave craze before the war, was wearing when killed in a famous incident. He went into Alexandria from Washington with his men to rip down a Confederate flag from the roof of a local hotel, and was shot and killed by the owner, becoming one of the first casualties! He was a local boy, and I got a nice 54mm metal figure of him the last time I was there!

Re: Kickstarter: What game(s) are you currently Kickstarting

For anyone that missed the first kickstarter for Gloomhaven, there is a reprint kickstarter that started today for a 2nd printing. I might order an add-on for a couple things to supplement my current copy. Maybe the 17 solo scenarios and health / XP dials.

Re: Kickstarter: What game(s) are you currently Kickstarting

Wow! Almost $901,000 so far on it's first day for 2nd printing of Gloomhaven. And it doesn't need stretch goals or exclusives

Re: Kickstarter: What game(s) are you currently Kickstarting

@Hahma, I really like the look of Gloomhaven. I just don't know how justified I am in getting it seeing how I will shortly receive Darksouls and Massive Darkness here soon. I'll be backing Zombicide: Green Horde, just because I am a huge zombicide and zombicide Black Plague fan, and its basically a standalone game that can be used as a huge expansion to zombicide Black Plague. I watched some videos of Tom Vassel from dice tower reviews playing gloomhaven solo. It looked pretty neat. It just looked similar enough to the other ones I'm getting that I'm on the fence.

Re: Kickstarter: What game(s) are you currently Kickstarting

@TREX

I don't know about Massive Darkness or Dark Souls as far as game play goes, though I have tried the original Zombicide. But yeah, Gloomhaven is similar I'm genre for sure. As far as game play, it's a card driven game where all your actions are dependent on which cards you choose to play, and over the course of a scenario, you will be losing cards that can't be used again that scenario, so you have to be careful with your hand management and timing of when you use certain more powerful cards. You are only abe to bring a certain amount of cards into the scenario, depending on your character, so when you level up and get to add a new card to your pool of cards, you can still only bring the original number of cards, so that adds to some tough decisions. Lots of tough decisions throughout the game. Also, no alpha player syndrome since players choose from their own unique ability cards to play, and nobody can tell someone to play a specific card.

It's a neat game for sure. Whether you need it or not, that's up to you and dependent on your play group. Of course, you could always get it now and hang on to until you are done with the other games
