Though there's also then local postage costs to think about. I know this is a micro but should be factored in.

It's $8 per copy and a one-off $10 shipping charge, so:

$13 each for 2.
$10 each for 5.
$9 each for 10.

Plus the shipping costs when it's here, obviously, but that would likely be less than Ł2 each. Additionally, I backed Yardmaster which means I get the initial copy for $7. If Steve Jackson wanted to cancel his original pledge and jump aboard then I'd be willing to put a bulk order in for everyone and post them out when they arrive. There's still over three weeks to make a final decision.

Great stuff. Count me in. Want to make a separate thread?

Other games I've backed on Kickstarter include;

Pairs

A pub / drinking game which is quick to play, quick to explain and has done very well indeed.

I went for three decks (Pirates / Pears / Barmaids) which worked out around $11 a deck I think from memory. They'll be doing a proper retail run once the Kickstarter delivers. I'm very much looking forward to this one.


This town ain't big enough for the 2-4 of us

Ridiculously cheap ($3 minimum) for a micro game. Looks a bit like a cut down version of Carcassonne.


Province

This looks very neat and compact, a worker placement game in an envelope!


Luchador!

A fast paced dice game where you lose the dice effect if you roll the die out of the ring. Perfect for my enthusiastic die-rolling son!


I'll post reviews of all four in the main boardgame forums once they arrive (and the forum arrives!)

I also commit to not backing any more without informing my fellow forumites!

Bah! No good telling us about amazing looking games after the fact. That's just teasing us. I was already aware I'd missed out on Pairs, and then you have to go and rub it in some more. As I'd mentioned in the main board games thread, I did at least manage to back Luchador, and I already have the first edition on my shelf too.

Yeah, I'm sorry about the post about closed Kickstarters. Consider it absolution on my part.

Queen Games are now giving away copies of New York (a themed version of Alhambra) and either Inka or Architekton to everyone who backs Escape: Zombie City. I don't know if they're any good, but I've already backed and more free stuff can't be a bad thing.

Alhambra's excellent, and particularly good with two (it uses a dummy third player which I think always shows the designer's thought properly about how a game scales down...). Don't know the others....

Not entirely sure this is the kind of game you made this thread to track, but I thought this looked pretty cool:

Harbour

Anyone seen anything on this recently, or played anything else by the creator?

Not cheap, but I do like the look of these gaming mats.

Anyone seen any similar that are already released and UK based for shipping purposes?
