They just had a video on youtube showing off the game again, but it doesn't look good as far as reaching their goal unless they get a ton of buys at the last minute!

So I was wrong about the shipping charges...

Limit of 5 per customer
Not available to ship to Quebec, Canada.
Standard shipping and handling to the contiguous United States included, otherwise shipping and handling charges will be calculated at the time of checkout.


3,140 Backers this morning...

3,240 Backers this evening.

Limiting an individual to 5 "backings" (buys) seems reasonable I guess (to limit scalping, I assume), but even with shipping included, that's $1,249.95 which is a lot to spend on board games these days. They'd need about 397 backers a day to make the deadline! Even if you had big spenders who are getting their five copies each day added, that's 80 a day! I don't think they're going to make it. :2cents:

With barely five days left to go... 3,571 Backers total.

They'll need 4,429 more buys in less than a week or the thing FAILS. :(

Interesting... Hasbro will take note about not all this kind of kickstarters will have the same success as HeroQuest. They should see how important is HeroQuest's brand for them, so hopefully they would take care of it in upcoming years.

TheRantCastPodCast's take on it (from the POV of fans who didn't grow up with this game)
(warning: language)

Here's BGG's page on the Original version of HeroScape (2004)... for comparison sake (the figures were pre-painted).
