Oath Cost Leaked

Crowdfunding

A reddit user posted that the Kickstarter cost will be $90 and the MSRP at $110. Pretty pricey, they shift come out and said that this is all not official and took down all the info they found on the Kickstarter. Thoughts?

I'd get it if I had the right group for it. Trent and I will likely back it under BGA already though.

sdirrane Supporter5 days ago | 1 point[-]

Nice.  I’m going to back it more than likely.

nealkfrank 5 days ago | 1 point[-]

Power to ya! I will be curious how your experience is when it gets fulfilled!

sdirrane Supporter5 days ago | 1 point[-]

If it’s anything like Root you will hear plenty.

Marshwiggle92 Supporter5 days ago | 1 point[-]

Yes you will. 

Skurvy5 Supporter7 days ago | 1 point[-]

Ouch that’s expensive. But if I had to guess it’ll be funded super quickly. 

Sliddell11 7 days ago | 1 point[-]

Seriously. With the loyal fans of root and those who wish they jumped on that train sooner will be all over this regardless. Just not me✌️Lol

sdirrane Supporter5 days ago | 1 point[-]

That’s where I’m at.  It’s also because I love Root so much that I want to support this project.  Plus it looks absolutely perfect to me.

Sliddell11 5 days ago | 1 point[-]

Haha right?? Glad to know I’m not alone..

sdirrane Supporter5 days ago | 1 point[-]

Expect to see my post of backing it soon tomorrow.

Marshwiggle92 Supporter5 days ago | 1 point[-]

Oh...I am...

Sliddell11 5 days ago | 1 point[-]

Haha well I’m alone again...

Were you able to watch any of the playthrough?

Sliddell11 5 days ago | 1 point[-]

Shoot I forgot it came out!

nealkfrank 5 days ago | 1 point[-]

I am waiting for the rules teach before making any judgement, there was a lot that was unclear in the playthrough. 

Sliddell11 5 days ago | 1 point[-]

For sure. When does that come out?

nealkfrank 4 days ago | 1 point[-]

It is currently on their kickstarter page now. Full teach by Cole himself. 

Sliddell11 4 days ago | 1 point[-]

Cool! I didn’t see it when I was on there but I’ll find it!

nealkfrank 4 days ago | 1 point[-]

Should be middle of the page under Gameplay overview. Cole's face is just there!

Sliddell11 4 days ago | 1 point[-]

Sick thanks man!

sdirrane Supporter5 days ago | 1 point[-]

Yeah I’m waiting for the rules videos too. They are usually more helpful than play throughs at least for me.

Sliddell11 5 days ago | 1 point[-]

Yeah, there’s just too much you can’t see because not everything comes up in a play through. Looking forward to it

nealkfrank 5 days ago | 1 point[-]

Rules videos really are game changers. That is why I love Heavy Cardboard. They do a very comprehensive teach before any gameplay is streamed!

Marshwiggle92 Supporter5 days ago | 1 point[-]

I'm in the same boat. I really don't expect to back it, but I might change my mind. 

Skurvy5 Supporter7 days ago | 1 point[-]

Not me either. Sadly. But maybe some day it’ll come to retail and I’ll be able to acquire it. If not, oh well I guess. 

Sliddell11 7 days ago | 1 point[-]

Haha right? I’ll be hoping during Black Friday that it drops to a reasonable price! 

Sliddell11 7 days ago | 1 point[-]

No matter what, $90 is way too high for me.

Sliddell11 7 days ago | 1 point[-]

Ooo that’s a lot... 

NAGfactor Supporter7 days ago | 1 point[-]

I don't think it will end up on my table at all. That's a lot higher than I was hoping for.

Sliddell11 7 days ago | 1 point[-]

I feel the same...

Marshwiggle92 Supporter7 days ago | 1 point[-]

Pricier than I had hoped. But, still potentially interested depending on how the solo mode looks. 

nealkfrank 7 days ago | 1 point[-]

Could not agree more, this seems to be the consensus around the interwebs. High buy in for an unknown. Cole is a solid bet but it is still hard to justify!

Marshwiggle92 Supporter7 days ago | 1 point[-]

Yep 

sdirrane Supporter7 days ago | 1 point[-]

I think I’ll still end up getting since it might be my only purchase this year, but I was hoping for in between $70 and $80 (max).

Marshwiggle92 Supporter7 days ago | 1 point[-]

That's more what I was hoping for. 

nealkfrank 7 days ago | 1 point[-]

I’m with ya. The neoprene mat and the nice coins/components are nice touches but that’s a pretty penny!

sdirrane Supporter7 days ago | 1 point[-]

This happened to me with Moonrakers.  I felt they should have allowed for a more cost affordable version of the game and let individuals decide if they wanted metal coins and to bling it out.

Marshwiggle92 Supporter7 days ago | 1 point[-]

I am curious what street price will be in 18 months. 

Skurvy5 Supporter7 days ago | 1 point[-]

Depends on how it turns out! Root is so hard to get now that the cost is outrageous. 

sdirrane Supporter7 days ago | 1 point[-]

It might just depend on availability.  I always contact my FLGS because they back a lot of games.  I bought Root (wicked lucky) for like $42.  But it was their only copy.  Then I bought the first expansion for about $24 from them.

Skurvy5 Supporter6 days ago | 1 point[-]

Uhh you shouldn’t say that out loud. 

Marshwiggle92 Supporter6 days ago | 1 point[-]

U/skurvy5 is right. But thanks for the tip. I can maybe have a friend do some shopping. 

Marshwiggle92 Supporter7 days ago | 1 point[-]

Sure. But I do expect that when the non ks version is finally available in 12 to 50 months the street price might be lower. 

Skurvy5 Supporter7 days ago | 1 point[-]

Lol. 12-50 months. That’s a bit of a spread.
