Wow, those are pricy.  Pretty, but pricy. 

 

Wish they would stop calling it CNC Molding though, since it's actually CNC Milling that's being done... :p

Forgive the dumb question, what does the CNC part stand for?

Given what it takes to work with the stuff, I was surprised that the Titanium was NOT the most expensive option!

It isn't a dumb question at all :)

I didn't realize it was hard to work with but it would make sense, seeing that you can have it permanently get colour distortions with "relative ease" through various means.  It's also stupidly expensive in thee first place because of its unique properties. 

 

I'm surprised silver is even offered, most of the other metals are at least reasonably hard, but... Silver?  Not used to seeing silver as an option for something that will see regular wear and tear..

The silver just gains more character over time ^_^

The thing that bothers me about this, even though the creator has several small successful kickstarters behind them, is that there is no information about the company or where production is taking place.

 

The projects location says it's here in Vancouver Canada, but the project creator is in Winnipeg, yet whomever wrote the kickstarters text obviously does not have English as their first language.

 

This reminds me of other kickstarters Ive seen where it's turned out the creator is simply importing already existing product from china and promoting it on kickstarter as something new.

 

Even without the high prices this would be an easy pass for me.

The day I pay $300 for a single die is the day I officially have too much money and need to start a foundation to feed or house the homeless. 

 

Sheesh!  If anyone cares or thinks this is an investment, its approximately a 1000% markup on the price of the raw silver.  Its also very easy to work...

      This goes live today (i'll add a link when it does)
       

      (almost complete pre-production image, minor changes possible)
       
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WkFwekye_zQ
      unboxing of the game
       
      (now if you want tiles for a dungeon crawl this looks a good deal)
       
      this is a reprint of the well regarded boardgame  Caustrophobia (https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/36932/claustrophobia) and it's first expansion with all new art assets and minis (unpainted)
       
      Monolith has already manufactured the game so it will be limited to 10,000 copies *I;ve asked and there are spares to cope with loss/damage during delivery)and deliveries are scheduled for January so minimal risk so ideal is you want to KS but worry about getting stung (but on the other hand if you don't like KS as a shop probably not for you)

      I backed the predecessor and I feel it was a mixed bag. They are very quick to mention "retail price" to show what an awesome deal KS is, but I find their "retail price" very optimistic, I'd never pay that for what is on offer in a shop. The fact that I could buy the game in shops before backers got theirs (and I'm not talking about one or two weeks) also did not sit well with me, especially as the real shop prices were very close to KS prices (including free shipping).
      I found the game / rules decent and the miniatures again a mixed bag. Some (especially the heroes) were quite nice, but the enemies often had such thin plastic parts (weapons for example) that no amount of hot water tricks could get and keep them straight and sometimes very blurry detail. To me the minis were definitely not as good as CMON Blood Rage or Rising Sun, for example (which admittedly are some of the best board game minis I've seen)
      The idea of casting enemies in different color to show their difficulty level might not be bad, but painting over dark violet / red / green / blue (of course using primer) is something I dislike.
       
      I also do not like that you only have one pledge level here ($120 - which is more than shown above in the picture) and it contains things that you already have as a previous backer ... meaning you pay for them again.
       
      That being said, a number of interesting looking minis, especially enemies ... and probably lots of more to come.
