Not really a Kickstarter but almost since it’s pre-order and they use Kickstarter rate for shipping 🙂
Just recevied an email from Ares for this edition since I bought War of the Ring Anniversary Edition back in the day. But I can’t pre-order, my transaction won’t go through, curses!
Here’s some info, and it will be available for pre-order on October 21st to the general public:
$ 249.90 – $ 297.38
126 painted figures
deluxe large size game board
special hardcover edition of the rulebook printed on high-quality textured paper
2 deluxe player aids
13 limited edition action dice
10 limited edition combat dice
92 tarot-size limited edition cards
11 deluxe cardstock character and unit cards
3 cloth recruitment bags
1 fate token bag
170 deluxe counters
“The Fate of Erebor” rules and components
numbered Certificate of Authenticity
Estimated Shipping Date: September 2019
Hope the box will provide a better storage solution for tokens and bags than WotR AE.October 18, 2018 at 9:32 am #18621
Oh yesssss, my preciousssssss …October 19, 2018 at 2:31 am #18628
Isn’t just this just really War of the Ring lite?
And $300 seems a lot of money.October 19, 2018 at 3:41 pm #18636
It’s a Collector’s Edition, you’re paying a premium for premium pre-painted components. Considering what GW charge for a game these days, that’s actually excellent value!
It uses some similar systems to WotR (eg action dice), but it’s really a game of its own, honing in on the one big battle and almost as complex as WotR. Check out my rules summary!October 19, 2018 at 8:59 pm #18637
I agree with UH – Bo5A uses the same basic system as WotR, but it is a great game on its own. It feels more tactical in scope (as it covers only the one battle), and puts more focus on individual characters, which makes for quite a dramatic difference in game play. More than you would expect from reading the rules. My (German) review is here.
