Yeah, isn't that just GREAT!!  Big props to Mike and Doug for adding the last 3 new sculpts to the 47,5 goal.  They have been really generous with the stretch goals in these last few days.

Now I almost can't wait until May when we get to see the finished product.

I am happy for you all. I wanted to give 80$, but did not know how the shipping and taxes would have worked out for me here in England.
I know I will get a worse deal, but I think I am probably going to buy one when it goes on sale, despite not being that bothered at first.
You lot spread enthusiasm and I am sorry I missed out.

after you answer the question of when we can buy it can you answer the question: what in the blue hell is kickerstarter? and why does it need funding?

We should have the game being delivered to Backers around May. Retail available around June or so then. We will be setting up a pre-order system as well at HBG but it will cost more than the KS folks paid. We'll keep you updated.

Kickstarter is a crowd-funding site that allows us to essentially take pre-orders for a game we want to produce to ensure we meet our BEP. If we don't collect enough money, nobody pays. If we do, everybody who backs us gets cool stuff. Check it out:

I just read tonight about how Larry is thinking of putting something up on Kickstarter to see if there's an interest


I can't wait cheesy I do love the idea of doing a Civil War game...That period has always fascinated me! I'll probably do it one of these days. In the mean time my attention and focus is on the Roman Empire.

GTO http://www.gametableonline.com/ will be featuring my Conquest of the Empire game. I'm seriously considering publishing my own brand new and updated board game version of this old classic. I've got some great ideas for this game. Perhaps I'll put it on Kickstarter to see if there's any real interest in such a product. If that worked perhaps I could start publishing my own stuff. Interesting.

There's the whole comment from Larry it's on his site here's the link to the conversation:

Here's the real thread:

Also, add in something like this:

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/494/ave-caesar

to vary the gameplay

and an Eastern expansion for more scenarios and 8 player games

Yeah, cool find. Part of the inspiration behind the game I suppose.
