Analog Evolution Games talks Westerly Expansions

Analog Evolution Games posted a lengthy update to their Westerly Reboot Kickstarter campaign about future expansions to the game.

From the update:

There has been a lot of discussion about expansion ad-ons and we worked really hard to change things around in a way that made the most sense. I will go into specific detail below however it should be noted that that the expansions have doubled in size overall and we are adding a new trope to enjoy. The expansion changes we have made are intended to provide base level pledgers the opportunity to have access to add-ons while at the same time providing more rewards for the wagon masters. This is a very tough area to find just the right amount of balance. That being said I think you will see that we tried to make everyone happy and provide even more content and fun stuff to the game. The last important note here is that we are going to add additional $75 wagon master spaces to give people an opportunity to jump in at a lower level now that we have made these new changes.

We are dividing the expansions into 2 groups High Lows and Trails and Tropes. This will provide the flexibility to offer Highs and Lows to everyone as an add-on (see our reasoning below). The Trails and Tropes will remain in the Wagon Master pledge level as a deluxe exclusive along with a new third trope as well as receiving the new expanded Highs and Lows. This new direction for expansions is meant to provide some add-ons for the base level while keeping the Wagon Master level special.

From the campaign:

Well Pardners the day has finally arrived Westerly is back up on Kickstarter! We have gathered a ton of feedback and incorporated a lot of really great suggestions into the game to deliver exactly what you are looking for in a Westward Expansion themed adventure. We also spent the bulk of time working with new manufacturers to ensure that we secured the best quality for the best value and most importantly accurate production and delivery dates. This work also enabled us to significantly lower the pledge price levels and include some really fun expansions in the higher tier pledge. We focused on giving you more game more content and more fun in the box. We hope you will join us and the rest of the Westerlings on this Epic Western Journey and to bring back all the nostalgic memories surrounding this theme that a lot of us share. Please spread the word and don't hesitate to ask questions make comments and reach out to us about any of the details of the game.

Analog Evolution Games launches Westerly board game Kickstarter campaign

Analog Evolution Games has launched a Kickstarter campaign in order to fund their new cooperative board game, Westerly.
Reminds me of playing Oregon Trail in grade school...

From the campaign:

Westerly is a cooperative game for up to six players. In it you will face countless perils as you try to guide your party through the wilds of the untamed American frontier to your ultimate goal, California. It's going to take skill, daring and just a touch of luck to get everyone there in one piece.

Each player in your party will be assuming the identity of one of nearly forty characters to begin your journey. Each character comes with his or her own strengths and weaknesses, so forming a well rounded bunch will certainly help your chances of survival. As a group you will have to decide on how much money to spend on supplies, items and oxen before setting off down the trail. Chose wisely, 'cause there's no turning back once you get going, and opportunities to replenish your needs are random at best.
