I have decided to offer a collectors edition of Siege of Verdan. I realize that this may make me sound pompous, “What kind of person makes a collectors edition of a game that they are not sure anyone will want to buy.”
I have confidence in the game and I am looking for any way possible to make it stand out. The kickstarter version should MSRP around $70 and I hope that the Collectors edition will retail for about $170. It will be in very limited quantity (all made here in the US). The make up on the collector’s edition is not very high. It is really just to get the juices flowing catch some peoples attention.
I posted about it a few days ago on some of the facebook pages…the response was huge!! I don’t know how many “likes” or purchases it will equate to but it was certainly a moral booster for the company.
The Collectors edition has a solid core top, 4 pyl sanded walls and a mdf bottom. It’s stained with a custom resin painted badge. The whole thing is distressed. The collectors edition game will also have custom molded game pieces instead of card board chits for the Unit pieces.
I do plan to send a few of these to reviewers and local game library’s. This has gotten some mixed opinions (send the econ-kickstarter to review) reviewers wont appreciate it they will just sell it etc.)
They have convinced me to make a few extra copies and sell them on the kickstarter.
Thank you for reading…
