Expansions: don’t make them–or at least don’t do it without a very compelling reason (aside from just making money). A lot of these now can be bought second hand and I’m sure many will recoup money by selling off their original collection. I suppose you could argue that by reworking Lancashire it is doing the same thing, but somehow it feels different.

If it was me who went all-in in previous campaigns i’ll be outraged to see that campaign but at the same time playing board games is a hobby, i am a consumer and Starling games is a game publisher. I feel like for me, getting the CC would probably soothe my FOMO while making it so that I might never touch it in the end. There are buildings to construct, lively characters to meet, and events to host — you will have a busy year ahead of you! As you start to add new expansions with old content, the number of variations can quickly escalate, I imagine Everdell could have hundreds of unique reward combinations if they chose to, which would be overwhelming.With the pricing of the rewards put to one side, I think one of the challenges here is this edge case use of Kickstarter which is becoming ever more popular. When Dante Davalos said “Making fun memories” I don’t think those backers are seeing the same way as he is. Whereas new people get their upgrade packs and wooden Evertree in the BIG EVERYTHING BOX, no questions asked. I completely agree about the logistical nightmare of combinations, especially when you’re trying your best to make redundant boxes.

At this point, backing a major boardgame on Kickstarter is not a risk in the way backing a startup or an independent film is, so you are simply paying for the privilege of having it first. But for real, no one should be complaining because a newer, more complete version is out there for cheaper.Everdell Complete Collection contains 23 different types of Critter meeples, player powers for asymmetric play, Giant Critters with saddles to ride on, and an amazing array of pieces including wooden twigs, squishy berries, smooth pebbles, amber resin, glass pearls, and more. In the case of Everdell–if it was possible to make this a 6 player game, why not include that from the get go? Which is why I ask you: what exactly are the differences between the CC and getting the various games slowly by yourself and just cherrypickibg the 1-2 favourite expansions? To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Unless I’m missing something, or it was a pledge manager add-on (which I honestly can’t remember), the only bundles they had in English were for only new expansions or all-in.

It’s heavy and takes a lot of space even if you only play part of the expansions and never play the others. Another concern is that Starling has a history of selling units in conventions months before the KS is delivered (happened with last Everdell KS). IMPORTANT NOTICE: as of December 2020 the United Kingdom no longer operates under EU rules, therefore import taxes must be paid when your item arrives in the destination country. The theme is exactly up my alley, but I hated that the font on the cards was so tiny and you’re sort of supposed to read what your opponents are doing). Those experiences are definitively worth the premium you paid (to most) and it’s still going to be a year+ before everyone else getting this deal is going to get the game.So we would not collect for a country like Serbia if it’s outside of the EU, avoiding the double taxation issue you describe. So the main problem is that Starling Games has centered the KS campaign around newcomers and retail items, not creating the pledges which would be interesting in content ans value for previous backers. And the pricing structure you mention means that now, the second hand market here is literally flooded now with people selling their copies so they can go all in on The Complete Edition.

I’m really annoyed by the lack of intellectual honesty in this debate, people telling that we are hating on people having a good deal, when our loyalty is just not being considered.I understand they are a business and want to make a profit, but every turn feels like another cash grab to get as much money off backers as possible. My hope is that whenever a project offers a fantastic value, backers celebrate that decision and clearly delineate other criticisms. And to be perfectly honest the base game is solid enough on it’s own that you don’t really need any expansions at all. with that said some people aren’t as comfortable selling stuff online – but can’t make everyone happy unfortunately. I would have bought the originals at full cost because I was in a position to do so and probably couldnt contain my excitement.
