I’m dishonest, and a dishonest man you can always trust to be dishonest
Avast me h–you know the drill! Let’s unbox a brand new copy of Cool Mini or Not’s Rum & Bones.
Arrrrrrggghhhh!! Actually, I’m not arghing today, I’m quite happy, because my Kickstarter-funded copy of CMON’s Rum & Bones just arrived in the post. And not only that – wait for it – it’s only a month behind schedule. And what’s more, the core set and all the stretch goals arrived in one shipment! You know, it’s enough to turn an old pirate honest (not that you can trust me with that).
Seriously, well done CMON, after several very successful campaigns and a few hiccups and disgruntled backers along the way, they seem to have turned this Kickstarter campaign process into a well-oiled machine. This no doubt comes as a result of the piles of cash pouring into their office and the subsequent ability to hire a lot more staff. I have pledges running with a couple more of their current campaigns (Blood Rage and B-Sieged) and here’s hoping they both arrive in such a timely fashion.
Not only timely, but high quality, because this is one impressive box of piratey goodies, and I think CMON are now officially giving big boys like FFG a serious run for their money. The price was reasonable, the shipping was more than reasonable, and the game itself is top quality throughout – wonderfully detailed miniatures full of character in several colours, thick card, fantastic artwork, and even thoughtful packaging.
As for the game itself, I’ll keep you posted and let you know if it lives up to these spectacular production values as soon as I get it to the table. But for now, before I leave you, just one more … AAARGGHHHHHHH!!!!
