Barrage: Kickstarter vs. Retail

Last week we received the retail edition of Barrage. Since the game arrived, we received a few questions about the difference between the KS and the retail edition.

Box cover

By buying the retail edition, you are missing out on the following KS-exclusive extras:

* a double-layered version of the map with additional foam core elements which can be used to build a 3D board.
* a set of metal coins
* two KS-exclusive game play elements.

But there have been component issues with the KS edition of the base game, which have been solved in the retail edition: the wheels have been redesigned and are now cardboard and the water drops are now wooden (link: Barrage Production FAQ).

New wheel and wooden drops

We have talked to customers who have received the retail edition from us and so far there doesn’t seem to be any remaining issues with the game components.

But it wasn’t all about new releases, we also received restocks of the following games:

The last three ones on the list are perfect stocking fillers: affordable games with a lot going in a small and compact box.
