" -------------------- ~Matt Ragan It looks like that Reaper is planning to lauch a new starter set with introduction of CAV2. As a player, what will you advise to the company about the content in the set? Remember, it has to help to boost sale. Otherwise, this game will fold. My favorite dream is ask Reaper to produce an starter combined army box for each major fraction. The rule book is separate from the army boxes but includes a promotion coupons for a large discount for the box sets. This way, for those who question about the survivability of the game, they can simply pick up and read the rulebook first and decide later. For those who are already playing the game, you can start a new army of your choice. It is a win-win situation to me. How Reaper can work around this discount issue with the retailers is beyond my understanding and I dont even know whether this is possible. The second choice is to include two opposing fractions in the set. Or, one can make the figures exclusive to the starter set. The disadvantage is that players may not like the content inside. If you include too many figures, it will be hard to keep the price down. I assume that Reaper likes to keep it at around $40. Too many games take this route and if the cost is high, new players will simply stay away. Just my two cents. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
