The base game, sure.

Agreed, I also pledged just for the core game. I don't see why the core box is so full of different miniatures (and even a little scenery) and the $50 expansion only has a few minis. And almost the extra minis that are realeased come as add-ons.

 

I'm really surprised that so many backers still pledge for the expansion.

Habit I guess! ^_^

Yeah, I'm not into paying 200$ for a game I won't be able to play.

Gameplay video looks a step more complicated than zombicide, which will turn off my friends. Shipping and conversion just too much money. Maybe if there was a 1$ and buying add-ons of minis, I would do that.

My guess is that the base game acts as a "loss leader". The base game attracts backers, the backers get antsy to spend more money, then they buy the add-ons. 

 

Another is that the number of backers give the creator a clear number of how many base units to make, but they have no way to determine how many of each add-on to make. Given the cost of plastic molds, it's possible to lose money on an add-on option. Mebbe Bryan has a better answer at how they determine add-on prices, although I thought the Reaper ones were pretty darn reasonable compared to other KS. They certainly managed to make me part with my money!

Yes that sounds very likely. Personally I don't see why most people would want to spend $50 on that (very meagre) expansion - some full boardgames only cost that much.

But I guess it's part of the business model. I don't think I've ever seen a relatively small KS with so many add-ons!

 

For the rest the game seems quite nice and I love the asylum theme. Next to that, the fact that it is a coorperative game seems fun to play with your friends and also means that not every character has to be balanced compared to the others. For the rest by far the most of the stretch goals are pretty decent (with some nice extra characters, monsters and a new range of metal illnesses). So I guess in the end, I get quite a lot of value for my EB core set pledge! ^_^

Well, it looks like they are having fun with this, haha.

 

I've not followed the campaign lately, but $7 for what? The tire alone?!

The deadly tire ... and the rules for using it as an opponent in the game for those poor deranged lunatics to face! Probably paying for any individual packaging it might have too (like a little plastic grip sealed bag & maybe some bubble wrap & other stuff).

      About this project
      The invention of dice can be traced back almost 5000 years. 
      However, the dice you see before you now, retain a much deeper history than that.
      Crafted from the world's oldest wood, these dice are carbon dated to be 50,000 years old - 10 times older than the invention of dice themselves!
      This is your chance to own a rare artefact of our planet's immense history!
      Introducing the most fascinating gaming accessory in the world...
       The Wood: Ancient Kauri
      Ancient Kauri is the oldest and most exotic wood in the world. Not one tree was cut down to harvest it. 
      Tsunamis levelled the mighty Kauri forests during the Stone Age, leaving the trees buried just below the surface of the ground and preserved in the water of peat swamps. 
      The Ancient Kauri wood has neither petrified nor turned to coal. This underground resting place, sealed from the air, became a perfectly balanced cocoon that preserved the giant trees for 50,000 years.
      The wood used to craft the Ancient Dice is sourced from the awesome people over at Ancient Wood Ltd. All wood comes with certificates of aunthenticity. 
      The natural iridescence of this incredible wood resonates the historical significance behind these dice.
      There is a very limited amount of Ancient Kauri on the planet. 
      These dice shift the barrier between present day, and The Stone Age. To own one is to own a genuine prehistoric artefact; a glowing relic of truly ancient history.
      50,000 Years Old
      To give some context as to just how old these dice are, here’s some info on how different things were here on Earth, when the trees used to carve these dice fell:
      Population was less than 10000 – humans faced extinction. Spoken and written language did not yet exist.  The Ice Age persisted. Humans lived in the Stone Age - coexisting with Neanderthals. Europe's population was 0. Since the trees fell, the moon has orbited Earth 675,925 times.

      Okay, so: draugr kickstarter. Hoping to launch next week. Tim Prow's undead wyrm as the centrepiece, with zombie beastmen, trolls, and cavalry to round out the pledges. Hopefully timed to coincide with payday at the end of the month.
