I'm planning to make my own game with the components

Let me know how that goes. Truth be told, I'll be lucky if I have the time to play through all the scenarios.

I'm going to try and get at least the gameboard from Fields of Eternia, which is way more evocative than CMON's generic skirmish hex map...

With most board games these days a third-party seller like x-leaser will offer the gameboards as vinyl matts, so I'm hoping that's an option
(I grabbed their Kingdom Death matt, which is gorgeous)

My intention is to craft it as an area-control game, and use the cmon board for individual "boss fights" taking elements from Advanced HeroQuest, Blood Wars, and the Conan board game.

Possible DIY alternative: Get the Preternia map poster Mattel did for the Classics line about a decade back and mount it on a poster board, or scan it out of The Art of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.

Yeah, could do that as well. The classics line released three maps. While I assume they are now collector's items I couldn't afford, I'm sure I could grab high res images and get my own printed. Though I do like how FoE has it divided into distinct areas already

Only thing I'm really hoping is CMON does a version of Teela in her original outfit, which FoE have not done...

... "SEE-MON"?!

Isn't it "Cool Mini or Not"? Is this like GiF vs. JIF?

"See-mon" rather than "C'mon" is very jarring to me, because I used the latter for years, but I'm getting used to it.

Oh my lord. I’ll never play it so I wouldn’t buy it just to sit on a shelf.

based on past CMON kickstarters, I'm going to guess $100 for the base game, $4-600 with all the add ons
I'm assuming it'll run close to Marvel United, so about $300-$350. But I will play it, so I'm just waiting to pull the trigger. :wink:

So cool but so expensive. The reason I never buy a lot of stuff like this is because I will never use it.

Where is This Forest?
Just beyond That range of mountains and up The river from An ocean.
If you go south from This forest you get to Another city on the edge of Their desert. In the middle of This forest is Our home which is close to Those hills within which there is A magic ruin.

The geography of Some Things on a Map is quite simple really.

Like most CMON games it is something that I hope one of my friends will buy so that I can have a go without needing to pay for or store it and given that it is unavailable in Europe then that seems unlikely.

There will be huge profits for people buying additional sets to resell to European's.

Wait for the expansion add-ons though. I would expect at least 4 and that would add another $100-150 on to those amount at least for an all-in pledge.

UGH. I just dumped 200+ Canadian dollars on Zombicide "cowboy" edition.

I'm consoled by the fact that this isn't a fully co-op game, and I limit myself to those due to interest and financial reasons.

I avoided the Wild West Zombicide because I knew a truckload of Zombicide 2e was already on the way. I'm glad I did, because this keeps getting more tempting.

I'm honestly surprised to see She-Ra appear, though. As far as I knew, that's a separate liscense these days. I guess CMON managed to negotiate both!
