    Solomon Kane Board Game (Mythic Games)

    There are actually two different solo modes. They also just unlocked all the components for a 1v mode.

    Regarding the scale, hopefully they will have pictures soon, but during today's KS live, Leo showed comparisons with Conan, Mythic Battles, Warhammer, and I think some more, but I missed a bit of it, and it's basicallty in scale with all of those.

    One thing that they've said about the game play videos is that you have to liken this more to something like a role playing game. Watching videos of people playing D&D can be a downright snoozefest, whereas playing the game yourself is obviously much more engaging. It's been a really odd campaign. They're still gaining backers, but so many people seem to have jumped on that early bird "just because" and are now leaving that it's grinding to a standstill. Hopefully they can get it moving forward again.

    Mythic Battles: Pantheon 1.5

    I'm also in the U.S. and had minimal problems with shipping. I got everything on time except for the RPG book, which Funagain said the post office lost. I also had one mini that was bent to an extreme that I was uncomfortable trying the hot water treatment with, and my core box was split at a cormer. I sent an e-mail to Funagain, and in about three weeks I had replacements for all three. Gameplay wise I love it. There's so many different mechanics that play into effect, from the draft to the dice to card management. I haven't tried the scenarios yet, but skirmish is loads of fun, and I am not normally a skirmish player (I've never even tried it for Imperial Assault). I know it's just anecdotal, but when we demoed it at GenCon before the Kickstarter two of my friends who don't really buy boardgames liked it enough that they ended up backing. And one of the guys in my regular group said it's the most fun he's had with a game. I don't know what effect Monolith having sole ownership will have, but I also really enjoy Conan, and I think a lot of people's complaints about that were way overblown. I'll definitely be back all in for Ragnarok, and unless they really screw something up, for Egypt as well. It's a bummer you've had such a lousy experience.

    Mine was FedEx in WI. Got it last Thursday.

    Atlantis Mythology kickstarter 11/20

    Thinking about backing this to replace some of the Mythic Battles minis I'm not overly fond of (Heracles). These look great, but at the price point I'm not sure. Not that they're not worth what they're asking, just for my needs it might not be worth it.

    Mythic Battles Pantheon

    People are already reporting getting tracking numbers in the KS comments. I'm assuming these are just core pledges. Now is when being patient becomes incredibly hard.

    Time of Legends: Joan of Arc

    From everything they've been saying, MB:Pantheon is still on track to ship on time, barring things that are out of their control (Customs, etc...). I'm willing to bet that it was either launch this now, or with the holidays they would probably have to wait until next year. Given that we've pretty much seen production samples for almost everything from MB, and I do believe Quirkworthy has stated that things are on boats, I'm not too worried about them launching this one, except where my wallet is concerned.

    CMON Rising Sun

    Oh man am I glad to read this. I was concerned with this and Village Attacks happening at the same time, and the PM for Vampire Hunters launching soon, that I'd be in big trouble.

    Mythic Battles Pantheon

    Not sure where you're getting the bolded information from. They've repeatedly stated the opposite, that they are very much planning on having organized play. How much not having the game in normal retail outlets will affect this might be a point for discussion, but I've never seen them say anywhere that there will not be OP. They've also said that the retail availability through their store will be mostly affected by the popularity of the items, so it's not necessarily that they will only have an amount of copies equal to the amount needed to fulfill KS orders, sell the rest, and then never be available again, but that the availability/future printing will depend on how well it sells through their online store.

    3D art digital Kickstarter

    They've added 28mm as a pledge level. Unfortunately, having gone all in on MB, and saving up for Rising Sun, these are still a bit expensive for me. A shame, because they look great.

    LOAD the Board Game

    Mine was one of the last to ship, so I won't see it until probably mid-January. Then I have to wait for wave 2 to get my Epics. Really looking forward to finally getting it!

    Kingdom Death: Monster 2

    Anytime! I'm just glad I found the quote from Clark because I'm pretty sure I wasn't being very clear. In other news... Dun dun duuuun! Actually, I think your reply was more helpful to me than his.

    Thanks for the info!

    Kingdom Death: Monster 2

    I'm pledged on this at the $200 level right now. I got in mostly because of the hype, to be honest, and the fact that there are so many reviews stating this is the best game ever. I'm not really keen on assembling the minis, but I'm hoping that I can convince a couple of the craftier guys in my group to do that. Can someone give me a quick rundown on what the Armor Kits and Narrative Figures do? I'll be debating up until the end as to whether or not I add the Gambler's Box.
