Yeah, I'm seriously considering if I can cope with the murdering that would occur when the mrs realised I had spunked over 200 notes on little metal men.............................

Fucking Cambridge Games Factory. They've only just updated the Kickstarter page after posting on BGG three fucking weeks ago.

The latest update is that most European backers are still waiting for their copy of Glory to Rome. US backers who haven't received their copies get to choose a free game to make up for it. Europe gets nothing because shipping is more expensive. If I ever post on here about wanting to back another one of their projects, you have my permission to punch me in the face.

Bhaloidam - succeeded November 1st 2011 - eta June 2012 - last update in July saying signed off and waiting to hear on first week of August whether or not dice retooling had delayed it. According to a comment on August 18th they were still waiting to hear. Updated 6th September to indicate they had been delayed (clearly) and the games should hopefully ship October/November Updated 11th October with a teary eyed video of a final boxed product being checked. Hopefully soon it'll come through!

Farmageddon - succeeded March 4th 2012 - eta July 2012 - last update it's apparently shipped (Sept 1st) Received and it is good!

Agents of Smersh - succeeded March 19th 2012 - eta August 2012 - last update August 22 to say it was possibly 2-3 weeks from shipping, though I think this is from China to the US, where it then needs to be sent out again. Still waiting to hear whether or not it's been put on a container from China.

Mobile Frame Zero - succeeded April 11th 2012 - eta June 2012 - last update August 3rd saying final edits were happening and surveys would be out end of August. Not heard anything since, though some people have apparently had the survey Seems like they've put together the lego kits and shipped those before the rules are finalised, and there's no promise of when the instructions will come either. Final draft in a week or so, apparently.

Ace Of Spies - succeeded June 20th 2012 - eta October 2012 - last update on August 27th indicated it's all on track. Should have a pre-press proof or something in the next week or so.

Flashpoint: 2nd Story - succeeded August 9th 2012 - eta October 2012 - last update this week, all on track. 11th October - the product has arrived in the US.

Get Bit! - 33 days to go! - eta January 2013 Funded!

I assume your $300 also gets you some sort of rulebook? Or are you suppose to just point the guns at each other and make pew pew noises?

Rules can be downloaded for free.

The miniatures game rulebook can be downloaded free from Mongoose's website, for anyone. They're giving everyone who pledges a copy of the new Block war rulebook (pdf) and a copy of the Judge Dredd RPG rulebook (pdf also).

Ooh, I have a copy of that sitting waiting to be played!

Show off! :P

Can you tell us what it's like when you get a chance to play it? I was talking to a friend of mine and he had concerns about it's longevity, so I'm just curious about the range of cards there are and how much scope there is for different tactics, card combinations and so on. Cheers!

Praise the Sun! My copy of Glory to Rome finally showed up last week and the box appears to be undamaged.

I haven't had the courage to open it though in case there's something wrong inside, or indeed if the game turns out to be utter balls. :(

Come on Michael, spill it.

Have you all seen the $80,000 dollar stretch goal reward for Boss Monster? Well, you have now. Looks great!

Moosegrinder, you should really be getting a commission.

Hah! I didn't mean to lure in so many, it just looked ace. I have Joyrex to thank for bringing it to my attention.

I've been out of the country this past week. I'll take a look at it tonight. :)

EDIT: and now I've just contributed to Boss Monster. If this takes a year to show up, I'm going to punch someone in the cock. :angry:

Bhadoulim has now arrived - really lovely package but, as the very first random thing I backed, I'm still getting my head around it. It's basically a story telling system.

Agents of Smersh apparently left Miami on the 15th so that should be with me soon too. Seeing as Bhadoulim got snagged in customs and cost me £16 (incl handling by Royal Mail), I suspect that any charge I get hit with on this will add further weight to my "try not to fund any more" directive.
