Jasco Games has made significant headway since launching their Kickstarter campaign to make their upcoming Mega Man Board Game the very best product that it can be. If you've been following us (or them, for that matter) on Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr, then you've been seeing all the new figures and features which have been included as their budget has grown.
As of this writing, the Kickstarter is now beginning to enter its final hours, with 35 left to go. With that in mind, the folks at Jasco Games wanted us to reiterate a few things for those of you still interested in contributing (or, perhaps, who contributed but haven't followed very closely).
First and foremost: If you want to pay with PayPal, now you can! What's more, they will ship to North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and the Middle East.
Furthermore, colored minatures have been unlocked, and every game piece will now come in color. The deluxe version currently includes 29 40mm miniatures, including fan favorites such as Proto Man, Rush, Dr. Light, and Mega Man (natch).
Beyond that, we feel the need to elaborate: If you're a fan of the various little robots who occupy each stage in the games, there are potentially more minatures of those enemies coming from this project than anything else in the franchise's 25-year history. Mets, Octopus Batteries, Sniper Joes, Big Eyes, Pengs, Watchers, Tackle Fires, and Sabbotol are unlocked, with the Yellow Devil left as a further stretch goal. With any luck, the success of this game will yield further miniatures still in the future.
One other thing you might not have seen is this video which demonstrates how the game is played:
