I figured this should go separately to the merchandise topic, as it's more of it's own thing. Shinobi7 has just launched a Kickstarter campaign for the upcoming Sonic boardgame. It is officially licensed and will be released regardless of the the success of the Kickstarter, but if the campaign is successful there'll be additional parts available. It's due out in October. There initial goal is $50,000, and as of the time of writing they're a little over $30,000 with three weeks left to go. The pledge tiers are as follows: $50: Base game (including Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy and Eggman Boss), KS exclusive Super Sonic. $100: Base game, KS exclusive Super Sonic, 10 figurines of each badnik (Crabmeat, Motorbug, Buzz Bomber, Spinner) $150: Everything from previous tiers, all stretch goals included as freebies, all optional buys included as freebies. Stretch goals: $60k: Token bag $70k: Blaze player $80k: 50 plastic rings to replace cardboard tokens $90k: Sticks player $100k: Metallic finish to cards $110k: Shadow player and Oil Ocean expansion set Optional buys: $10: 20 plastic rocks to replace cardboard tokens. $20: Metal Sonic player and Mechanical Madness expansion (I've left a comment asking them to correct the name). $20: Infinite player and Metropolis expansion. $10: Vector large player $10: Big large player $10: Omega large player Personally, I'm backing this the full amount. It looks like a fun game and a really nice piece of merchandise too. Anyone else interested?
