I have not used Gorilla Glue, but from a google search apparently there are 2 varieties - "Gorilla Super Glue" is a brand of cyanoacrylate, so that should work fine. Regular Gorilla Glue, however, is a polyurethane, which you don't want to use.
Additionally, however, according to what I read, Gorilla makes a type of accelerator (or its includes with some products, it's hard to tell) called "Zip Kicker" that makes the bonds brittle, so you want to avoid that.
Overall, I'd say if you're not sure it's best to test by gluing two pieces of sprue together first. As always, you want a very small amount of glue, only on one side, and then hold it together (but not too tight, you want the chemical reaction "room to breath" - literally, as cyanoacrylate is activated by oxygen. Ideally the bond should set within 20-30 seconds.
Another trick, if you're dealing with a particularly heavy piece, is to dust one side of the join with baking soda. This reacts with cyanoacrylate to create a think and hard resin almost instantly.
Edit: oh, and even if you skipped the KS, the game is istill available. Unlike a lot of games where there's no point getting the retail because of all the stuff missing from the KS add-ons, I'd say KD is more than complete with just the basic box. It's got innumerable replayability, and an average campaign (once you're used to the rules), can last about a month (ddepending how often you play, I do @3 hour long sessions, usually about 2-3 Lantern years.)
Moreover, all the KS expansions are periodically made available when one does want to add onto the game (I recommend starting with the Gorm and Flower Knight expansions - the Gorm can be substituted for the White Lion for a Hunt, so gives some instant variety to the early play sessions, and the Flower Knight provides a really great side quest for early in the game).
KD only has one sale a year - the Black Friday sale that just passed, during which they bring back into availability everything released for the game so far. Tis is the best time to jump on board (outside of the KS), and over the last few years every BF I just grab a few more expansions - I only have about 10 of them totaql, and I haven't even gotten a chance to play through most of them yet, the base game is just. that. big.
Thank you for the helpful advice with glue and the tip with the KD Black Friday sale. Definitely going to test out that baking soda tip in the near future. Just as well I missed the sale this year (definitely putting in my calendar for next year though, I need that Flower Knight) wound up loving a buncha the new expansions for the Dawn of Madness KS's Black Friday sale so I was spared the hard decision of choosing between sales of awesome minis.
I think the game could easily be steeamlined more in rules presentation, but that would take away some of the fun. There's a tactile, visceral eperience to all the crunchy bitz.I figured out why the Hunt event deck is all the same thing (“roll 1d100 on the event table”): when you get the mining and “harvesting” (?) innovations, you add cards to the event deck.
So some of the extravagant redundancies in the game actually have a reason!
Sleeving the cards for Kingdom Death. Have any of you done so?
Are some cards of higher “priority” than others for sleeving? As in, do you find yourself shuffling some cards more frequently than others?
Ever since a friend of mine drunkenly spilled her can of beer over my entire Arkham Horror board game, I’ve been all for sleeving cards, at least. Oh and protecting cards from Dorito finger stains...Honestly I've never used them, though I probably should.
I was never the type to keep my comics bagged and boarded either, or leave toys in the packaging.
My stuff is coming from the US warehouse via FedEx,. I have never had FedEx charge over $30 in import fees. I think you should be able to contest that price - it does not sound even close to reasonable. Where did you hear that from? It wasn't a qwuote in an email was it? Because FedEx always sends me an invoice for any fees as few days before delivery. You got shipping confirmation, was that also from Fed Ex? Do you have an account with them?OH crap. News coming in from fellow Canadians. Looks like most of the orders are coming from the US warehouse. Canadians have been ordered to pay 140$ CAD for brokerage fees.
I'm looking into self-clearing the package but it will mean a lot of running around and extra effort.
I think that I may actually cancel my order (it hasn't been shipped yet).
@TristramEvans did you ever order from the US warehouse? Did you or anyone you know pay crazy brokerage fees?
EDIT: I'm likely to cancel my order.
EDIT 2: I've requested that Poots cancel my order. No way I'm paying so much money extra, making this more expensive than regular, non-Black Friday pricing.
EDIT 3: they won't cancel orders. I will have to receive it, pay the crazy prices and then pay the shipping to send it back again. Oh well.
My package is with UPS. I haven't gotten any notifications yet other than "label created". I heard this from two forum threads (Reddit and some other place). Very alarming!!My stuff is coming from the US warehouse via FedEx,. I have never had FedEx charge over $30 in import fees.

That article is great: I've found other people recommending the same course of action, so it is confirmed. I'm very much relieved.Apparently UPS sre scamming people in Canada with imaginary Brokerage fees. Half a mind to contact the overnment about this.
I don't understand do you mean the stuff you order from Black Friday 2018 arrived?, because all the stuff I've backed on kickstarter takes about a year to deliver (or 2 years in the case of Dawn of Madness).Package of Kingdom Death supplements from Black Friday arrived yesterday.
No, this Black Friday on the website - every BF they make all previously available/sold out products available again (at KS backer prices) as well as re-opening the pledge manager. The only parts of the Monster 1.5 KS that are still in "pre-order" are the Wave 3 and Wave 4 stuff.I don't understand do you mean the stuff you order from Black Friday 2018 arrived?, because all the stuff I've backed on kickstarter takes about a year to deliver (or 2 years in the case of Dawn of Madness).
Same here, in retrospect. I was listening to my favorite episodes of Columbo while gluing 30 tiny hands with tweezers.It's one of the aspects of the hobby some people hate, but I find really satisfying. I'll usually put on a Netflix series or some movies and it ends up a sort of relaxing, zen experience for me, almost ceremonial.
I’ve read online that others do this. I might do the same. It kind of pisses me off, to be honest, after paying such a luxury price. Then again, this happens everywhere. I pity the people who bought all the D&D 5e at full retail price and had those break down.Wow, that must have been an imperfection in the binding to go so fast
I had mine spiral bound a while back, it's been a great help
Cheers!Yeah, at this price point I'll be honest, even realllly minor things like typos tend to annoy me
But the good still overwhelms the bad enough to keep me satisfied ( just avoid the Lonely Tree expansion like the plague)
