Plus he has a better beard.
FYI - Stating the obvious doesn't count as a compliment.

Wow! That's it; I'm making it official. We're definitely enemies now.

For those backing Museum, did you go all in?  I am kind of bored with all things Cthulhu, so I may avoid that one.  I was tempted to get the World's Fair add on, but it doesn't add anything interesting for 2 player games.  Thoughts?

I'm not pledging for any adds-on of the ones that are available so far. Cthulu doesn't interest me (and I will confess that I don't even really know what Cthulu is - I know lots of board games are Cthulhu themed but I haven't played any of them and I haven't ever heard of it outside of board games). I watched the opening of the video for the World's Fair and it just didn't grab me.

I'm also still debating whether to pledge at all because I'm currently selling off quite a few games in the interest of trimming my collection to a more manageable size.

We are running out of room too.  My wife wants to buy more shelving, but we are already at the point of having more games than we can play.

CTHULHU is the creation of H.P. Lovecraft.  He wrote sci-fi and horror stories for pulp magazines and died poor.   Now he is considered one of the most significant authors in that genre.

The just-announced Archeologists expansion, on the other hand, could be right up my alley. I'll have a closer read/watch tonight to see what it's all about.

It doesn't look worthwhile to me.  Everything they try to add to it just seems like a distraction from what makes the base game interesting.

Yep. I'll have to have a good look at everything before it closes (or after, because you can adjust in the pledge manager). So far I've backed Archeologists and nothing else among the expansions.

I've backed the Grand Gallery. As I like all of the expansions, but parts of it:
The World Fair: The concept of working together to fill the world fair.
The Archeologists is most realistic.
The Black Market is still a bit strange for me, as there is no really good explanation of it yet....
The People's Choice gives all you need for the fifth player. In my game group we play often with 5. I had would like to have seen it as part of the basegame :(
But I can understand it's quite a lot, maybe to much. But I love the concept and cannot wait to play it

It is a bit too much for a game that I have never played.  If I was 100% sure that we would love the game and expansions, I would be all in.  I would have preferred if they released the base game plus maybe 1 expansion and then a year later added all of this stuff (like Saloon Tycoon).

I believe all of the expansions with the exception of Cthulhu you can buy later.  I think I will just get the base game and Cthulhu.  For some reason I can rationalize tossing 4 more Euro on this, but not 9.

I've just backed Museum. All the illustrations made me mad and I couldn't resist. It's my first Kickstarter and I pledged an all-in !!!

Everything is my fault.
FYI - I'm two months sober from Kickstarter.

JUANDJI
World's first board game with automagically moving figures, in hand-made wooden box, inspired by Jumanji movie.

Interesting just for the comments, about copyright of the game.  C:-)
