I would statto. If we could get 10 people together that's $10 each?

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 £2 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 backsEscape: 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?
