  1. Have you played terraforming Mars yet? And if you haven't stopped playing other games before that one!
  2. Yeah I know right. The thing is unless I'm reading it wrong they are basically saying that THEY won't sell it cheaper but that doesn't specify what their online Retail Partners can sell it at though. I mean they mentioned Amazon and eBay but then they put controlled by Eagle Gryphon Games. You would think they would be sure to mention other major online game stores, but they specifically don't. I would hope that they will request that they sell it MSRP for at least the first 90 days. Basically, I've heard them say the same thing before but then I'm able to get it cheaper right around the same time. This time there is definitely some more specifics that they have written out though that are good for backers. And I can say they do a good job making sure backers get their copies first which I think is very commendable.
  3. It's okay. He just posted that everyone has paid and no one backed out so he's locking in the order. ☚ī¸
  4. I got in on it yesterday for two copies. Are you still interested? I can geek mail the guy but he's strict about you having to pay right now. He might let you in if someone backs out.
  5. Yeah I know we should all get together sometime. On BGG there was a group buy option for Snowdonia where you could pick up your game at a spot basically in some big cities in Illinois, Wisconsin, and so on and you only have to pay $50 for Snowdonia Deluxe. It's all here: https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/2023728/group-buy-local-pickup-chicago-bloomington-normal
  6. Thanks Adam! Yeah I totally missed that there was a group Buy option for my area. How many of you guys are in the group by right now? @Barb Bliss and @tgpumpkin too?
  7. Yeah I get that this is how the characters are but this is a bit much for me. I mean does that stuff have to be THAT noticeable.
  8. You can definitely put those in the will for me! Can't do a trade though...I already have 5 personal Cocos and 3 are xl. They don't get enough attention between them as it stands with having so many. I do love your bolder especially!
  9. Sorry Adam! I think you are right about Vinhos and Gallerist. I bought Vinhos later than the KS date. With Lisboa it was available at Boardgamebliss for $75 Canadian dollars (which is big if you live in the US..I think its like $58 US dollars... PAID shipping (like 8 dollars) and bought the stretch goal pack from Gamenerdz.com for $24.99 with free shipping and it was still a couple dollars less than the KS with the unreal shipping price included. You are probably right about the KS full pack from BGB being $125 but they have a pretty decent free ship threshold for US backers at 200 canadian dollars giving free shipping. To be honest, if Gamenerdz had just listed it early enough, I would have ordered directly through them. They had the base game with the stretch goal pack for $90 with free shipping. Again, not a big difference from the KS price, but the point is that I didn't have to put my money down a year in advance to get the game at a good price (actually cheaper). I know its a risk, but I do not ever find Eagle KSers to be a good value unless you gotta have it NOW and must have the stretch goals. They have top notch components which I really like but if you wait you can get their games a LOT cheaper. I think I paid $48 for Vinhos Deluxe from CSI...added something else and got the free shipping. They do make great games though and I don't begrudge anyone who wants it, and has the funds to buy it now, to go for it!
  10. I would not recommend getting escape plan right now. I can tell you from experience I have purchased Vital's Eagle Gryphon Games from KS way after the KS is over and usually right before the kickstarter backers get their copies from boardgamebliss.com for the same amount as Kickstarter backers paid, even less actually with all of the stretch goals. They always charge a fairly high amount to ship the game to you on their Kickstarter too. I would definitely go Snowdonia and Cthulhu.
  11. Heck ya...can't take it with me and I know you would appreciate it more than anyone else. Consider yourself in the will. Now, if you could convince DMG to make you a Chechen Dragon tray with at least bit of sapwood in it I'd trade ya strait up...for real! I love my Dragon tray but you know my love for chechen and I know your love of BORO. I think that's the only way I'd part with it while I'm still breathing. Otherwise gun to my head, I'm still hanging on tight. 😁
  12. Ok so this is my personal opinion, but having received so many wonderful wooden gaming products from Dog Might Games, I have fallen in love with chechen, a very beautiful wood. It has become my favorite wood so far that they have put up for sell and that is saying something because they have a lot of beauties in their shop. 😜 The beauty in this wood lies in that is it chatoyant which means when the light hits it, it exhibits beautiful changing luster throughout the wood. It also has a strong golden blonde and reddish brown tone, highlighted with other dark streaks. Simply put, its pretty stunning. Below are some youtube links I put up that show off chatoyancy in the wood. As well as some pictures. However chechen, will always look way better in person than in pictures due the chatoyancy it exhibits in lighting! Don't forget that when you think about which wood to pick! Pick chechen! Please feel free to add any wonderful DMG pictures of chechen that you might have! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSJV8LVkleQ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-0v46fRQgo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y0HgIwch1XQ
  13. How funny of you to post this about chechen! I was literally just outside taking pictures of my Chechen component collector and taking some video of the chatoyance on it thinking I should start a thread "Why you should choose chechen". My my component collector came I was blown away at how beautiful it looks. I've gotten so many compliments on it. Your piece is absolutely stunning and I am jealous of you again but happy for you as well. I'll see if I can get my pictures and videos up.
  14. 2 games of Amerigo for me last night.
