Well for me their demo videos have been a budget killer as they show off the details and features of things like the light tables. For example, I was really on the fence about them, but then with the dimmer feature, that put me over the edge on getting some. Some of the new add-ons are right in the sweet spot of extra tiles I was wanting as well. So have gone from a dark 2nd circle to a dark 3rd circle pledge with a 7 pack light table and add-ons. Budgets be damned.

I’m very curious about what we haven’t seen yet. It’s such a short campaign they can’t save too much for the end or there won’t be time for people to pledge. Plus we’ve already seen the full AHBL pledge, and while, sure, they’re holding back a few secrets, it doesn’t seem like any major terrain is going to show that hasn’t already been revealed. We expect the volcano. And maybe some other bling. But in terms of something large enough to meaningfully impact my budget? I just can’t tell.

Was aiming for 500 when it begun and is now over 800 and it looks like there will be more interesting addons on its way.

I'm still wavering on this. I wake up and think I won't get any, then ponder getting 2k worth, then scale it back again. I seem to feel very mixed on this one, esp since there is still so much from previous kickstarters I am waiting for restocks so I can grab.

I am kind of in the MrMorden boat about no fixed budget, just a sense of when the $$ total is clashing with the potential use/enjoyment metric and the where will I store it concern.

My KSVI ended up being all add^ons, not a single complete encounter, though some were tempting.

Here definitely all add-ons.

I'm likely in for $25-50 depending on add-ons. :)

I don't usually set a hard & fast budget for these things. Instead I try to min/max the purchase. In other words, I ask how I can minimize money spent while maximizing satisfaction with what I get. In Caverns Deep, that was the Essentials 1-9 pledge plus a *bunch* of add-ons.

In this case, It's looking like a 3rd Circle pledge to get all the lava goodness, and an add-on of the standard paint large banks. No illumination (for now). This might change as more is revealed.

Max budget is $1700 which cuts into my KS7 budget. I have a backup budget.... beg the wife for more! Lol

But I am honestly hoping to get out of this for under $1000. Currently at $450. But I expect once more and more add ons are unlocked it’ll be closer to $1500.
Yeah I wish they had explored the Essentials approach again, I ran the numbers/kits in another thread and it looked like they could have gotten an Essentials 3rd Circle (non-illuminated) to about a 1k price point, which psychologically I think would have been a win.

I am pretty torn on this! I see 3 likely scenarios:

A) Back 2nd Circle Illuminated

B) Back 1st Circle Illuminated + Select Addons

C) Back 3rd Circle Illuminated and hope KSVII is delayed :)
