    Played Tsuro Phoenix Rising which I received a little while back. Awesome game, really simple to get the hang of but with surprising amount of variance and tactics to the game. See that becoming a family favourite pretty swiftly.

    Eventually managed to get a name of someone at Jasco Games and get my refund on the Street Fighter project. Chap was really nice, apologises for the hassle I've had and sorted me a refund really swiftly.

    It probably will end up a good project but I genuinely think it will be lucky if it's released even by next Christmas and I still have a few doubts it will land at all. Shame but will just reinvest in Car Wars I'm thinking.

    Indeed. I missed the original Gloomhaven hype (got 4th print run) Love the game.

    Anything special / kickstarter exclusive stuff given out with the original KS?

    Frosthaven is an independent sequel to Gloomhaven, not an expansion.

    Solo scenario booklet (which you can download as a pdf but would be nice to have the printed one). Lots of rule changes from version 1 to 2 (two was also a kickstarter). There isnt many exclusives really, the latest printing is the best version really (5th).

    If you want to be technical it's a stand alone expansion.

    My copy of Machina Arcana arrived today, can't wait to set it up and give it a whirl with the family.
    Always love a good co-op exploration/survival style boardgame.

    Took the plunge and just backed Car Wars, not arriving until 2021 but it looked too good to pass on and my son will love it.

    Will probably need to find more money for Return to the Dark Tower from restoration games due out 14/01.

    Living Planet arrived on Saturday, more than a year late. Now to regularly bring it to game meets while people want to play something else.

    Return to the Dark Tower is live for those older folk looking for some 80's throwback.

    Bit pricier than I was expecting but will still cough up as I loved it as a kid.

    Yeah its a huge price on it, more than I was expecting. I just finished my Imperial Assault collection so I can't justify this, id rather get Twilight Imperium for the money anyway I think. Next kickstarter for me is Frosthaven.

    When you look at what they've done including the app etc it's a lot of work but I can't see it retailing near that price so I do wonder if they're trying to squeeze a but extra.

    I will probably back it anyway :p
