After the popularity of our previous news update about upcoming 247 Toys and Gale Force Nine titles, we’ve decided to start posting snippets of board game news that we think you might be interested in hearing about. These posts won’t be as long as our regular posts but we want to provide our readers with up to date news and don’t always have the time to get a full article written before the news has passed.
What’s this all about??? More super hero shenanigans!!!
The first of these snippets is about a recent announcement from Greater Than Games, who have just opened pre-orders for their upcoming Wrath of the Cosmos expansion for their hit title Sentinels of the Multiverse. Greater Than Games have been using Kickstarter to fund all of their Sentinels of the Multiverse projects over the past few years. However, Wrath of the Cosmos is taking a different approach!
Cutting out the Kickstarter middle-man they’ve announced that their pre-orders are being run through their website and in the style of a Kickstarter. You can read the whole post over on their site, but the following statement tells you pretty much all you need to know.
“This preorder campaign is running from Tuesday, August 5th to Thursday, September 4th. The counter here will keep track of how many copies of Wrath of the Cosmos have been preordered. (The counter refreshes every 15-30 minutes, so don’t worry if you don’t see it update live. That said, feel free to check back in every so often to see where we are in the campaign!)
As we reach certain numbers on that counter, each preordered copy will include more and more free things!”
What’s so special??? Extra promos for good measure!!!
With Wrath of the Cosmos orders being taken,they’ve been very busy bees over there, and have posted the following “Stretch goals” and updates as they’ve reached various targets.
UNLOCKED! 3 Wrath of the Cosmos Art Prints!
UNLOCKED! 100 copies preordered: 5 free promo cards: The Prime Wardens!
UNLOCKED! 500 copies preordered: 1 free environment mini-expansion: Omnitron-IV!
UNLOCKED! 1000 copies preordered: 1 free villain mini-expansion: Wager Master!
[LOCKED] 1500 copies preordered: 1 free hero mini-expansion!
If you’re a die-hard Sentinels of the Multiverse fan then this is likely to be a must have item, and at $19.99 it’s not a bad price, the real sting to this for UK buyers though will be the $29.99 delivery charges!
