By the way, the weight of this box is now up to 14 pounds, and it's so big it dwarfs anything else on your game shelf. Even though this game is expensive, you do get a lot for your money.
As a fan and player with lots of miniatures for this game, I'm happy to see it finally reach the market. Evidently, so are a lot of other folks, who are pledging enough for one, two or even three copies of this game, which will retail for $100 (for details on what was going in the box prior to Kickstarter, go here).
Which brings me to my dilemma: Do I pledge the cash to the Kickstarter project and get all the extras promised to people who pledge to fund the project? Or do I act local, and support my game store by purchasing the sixth edition of OGRE through them?
I can't afford to buy two copies (and I'm not sure I'd want to), so I have to decide. So taking a page from Kickstarter, I'm gonna crowdsource my decision: Assuming you were willing to drop a Benjamin on this game, would you do it through Kickstarter or instead pick it up at the store that lets you game there? What should I do? Less than a month to make up my mind ...
