Wayward Kickstarters - Far West - To Release in May 201?

Gareth just made a May prediction for Far West's much delayed release. Wisely, he failed to mention which year ;)

I know it says "backers only", but I figure the $150 I plunked down on this nearly 3 1/2 year late Kickstarter gives me some room to play.

  1. I would start up a betting pool on this... but I don't think anybody would bet on the side of it actually making it out in May. Actually I don't think anybody would bet on it making it out at all.

    1. I actually set up a "guess the date" pool on RPG Geek a little over a year ago. 30+ folks signed up, and only five are left standing (bunch of optimists!). Winner gets a $25 Gift Certificate (redeemable anyplace but the Adamant store).

  2. Doesn't he need more time to plagiarize art? Last I saw of this he was taking other people's images and mildly tweaking them and calling them his own.

    And where's that Buckaroo Banzai game I paid for several years back?

    1. That photoshopped "art" he's been doing is fucking hideous.

  3. My wife and I are four years and three months in on our oldest undelivered Kickstarter. I wonder who of the Tenkar Travellers has had the longest wait.

  4. My oldest, not delivered Kickstarter is a $110 pledge for Steampunk Musha from May 2012 ... soon to be three years old ... sigh

  5. Tomorrow marks the three-year anniversary for the funding of Signal Fire's Met. Alpha. Since funding, Goodman Games lapped this version by starting a new Met Alpha KS about two years later and not only delivering on it -- but releasing a metric ass-ton of new products for the game during the SAME KS. Meanwhile, Signal Fire can't even get their single book out during a period three times longer.

  6. I shake my head while balling a soft fist as I read these comments. On the one hand (the shaking-head part) it seems a black eye to all small-venture financing when these clowns take your money and faith (of sorts) and piss it away.

    On the other hand, the soft-balled fist, I think it's awesome that a great number of you are investing in potential, the very basis of American Enterprise. That's immensely cool in my book.

    Thanks for believing in America.

  7. The only Kickstarters I've ever backed are Reaper's first Bones line and Kevin Crawford's Silent Legions. Given the kinds of reports I keep ready, Reaper and Crawford are likely to be the only Kickstarters I would ever back again.

  8. My oldest unfulfilled is Champions of Zed which supposedly had books delivered last October. A few people have reported receiving their books in the past two months nearly three years late. I have nothing.

    Close is Deluxe Tunnels & Trolls which has delivered most or all of the add ons but not the Deluxe Rules.

    My best success is Kevin Crawford who is now a "buy at the top level as soon as I know about it" and Joseph Bloch, the Greyhawk Grognard, who has done fewer products but who has the same done early tradition. He is a "buy in but not necessarily at the top level" but that has more to do with how his products align with my needs than quality.
