Bloodborne: The Board Game - trailer (Kickstarter begins next week)


Recommended Posts

Backed!

 

Only ~7 hours left on the "early bird special" tier.  If you plan on buying this eventually, you can save yourself a few bucks.

 

Also I hate the term "backed" for some reason.  I preordered it on Kickstarter.

But what about the frame pacing

CMON have included miniature blood vials which contain a serum temporarily giving players Parkinson's to mimic the true From engine experience. That's where that $1.8mil is really going obviously. Actual game costs like $2 to manufacture with child labor.

Man, the stretch goals on this thing are legit.  Tons of new monsters and hunters, a whole new campaign, currently working on PVP mode.  And the minis look absolutely sick.  I don't back many things on KS, but this has turned into my most anticipated game of 2020 already.  Damn.  I hope they have a prototype at GenCon.

I also see that it now has two "optional buys" ($40 each) as well.

I'm not doing any of the optional buy.  I'm happy with the base game as is.  That said, I'm happy they're doing the optional buys because it means the campaign keeps making more money which gets me more stretch goals. :D

Funding is just north of $3M now, with 4 days to go.

 

I'm trying to resist upping my pledge to buy the Castle Cainhurst expansion. :nervous:

It's now up to 5 optional buys.

Yeah.  I had decided that I was going to temper my fanboy impulses and not do any optional buys at all. I mean, with all the stretch goals, for that many minis, the base game is already an insane value at $100.  But damn if the Cainhurst expansion isn't testing my resolve....having the Martyr Logarious boss alone is gonna make me get it.

One day left to get in on this and get all the KS exclusives.  Right now here's what that looks like, 

 

The base game:

All stretch goals:

It's an absolutely ridiculous value for $100.  The base game could retail for that, minus the KS exclusive stuff.  30 hours left.

5 hours remaining.  Up to 117 minis in the base pledge with the game.  Works out to something like $0.90 per mini.  For the minis alone that's really, really good.  It's gonna be a long year waiting for this.  Hopefully they have it to demo at GenCon or PAXU.

You can get it on the "Full Moon Set" which includes all optional buys for $250 (a discount of a WHOLE $30 over buying each individually!)

Yeah, I opted not to do all-in or any of the optional buys (even though I really wanted Castle Cainhurst).  I figure with the base game, the chalice dungeons, Mergo's, and all the stretch extras I'll have plenty of mileage out of my $90.  And if my group really really enjoys it I can pick up the expansions at retail down the road.

Necropost.  Between China manufacturing delays because COVID and shipping issues, this is finally rolling out almost a year late.  I got the address confirmation e-mail from the fulfillment center yesterday.  When it finally arrives I'll do a review a mini detail pics for y'all.

Nice, looking forward to it. I’ve managed to avoid the siren song of CMON kickstarters recently, though most of that money has gone towards getting most of the stuff coming out for Legion and Crisis Protocol... I just love painting the minis. Also awaken realms has me in their grip with Nemesis and ISS Vanguard, so... sigh.
