    Hrm. The Kickstarter clearly says “this game will initially only be available via Kickstarter or direct from Treefrog Games”

  2. Cool, I really enjoyed Gaiman´s short story and his surprise twist ending, but I´m more into roleplaying games than card games.
    Ïa ïa!!!

    50 quid – cant even imagine the conversation with the missus on this one :)

    Speaking of Holmes vs Cthulhu, let’s not forget about this little game: Sherlock Holmes – The Awakened

    Glad that it will also be available direct through their website, and not just through Kickstarter like Cory’s blurb says.

    I don’t know if more campaigns are doing that, but that would seem like a terrible use of Kickstarter. When I give money to a campaign, it’s not just because I want whatever new bauble I’m (basically) pre-ordering, but because I want to kickstart a production, or a company, or some great idea that should take over the world.

    If it becomes just a vehicle for preorders, then why not just stick it on Amazon and be done with it?

    (NB: argument above directed at the notion of games and such available “only through Kickstarter,” which this game, thankfully, isn’t.)

    Like that one won’t reach it’s goal…
    Whoops, there already.
    anybody guess the total?  250k?  500k?
