Aliens Vs. Predators

Any interest in this game:

I think it's the old card game version changed into a board game (which it should have been from the start). The game is a little pricey t $120.00 MSRP, but it appears to have a solo-play mode, so I'm super-hyped!

I'd read about it before but hadn't really looked into it. I had thought it was more of a miniatures game, but seems to be clearly more of a board game, just with miniatures-quality pieces (and assembly!). I'm definitely interested to play. A couple comments I read on BGG were positive.

One note is that the main reason I'd really been aware of it at all is that the company has become notorious for how the handled the Kickstarter for this and other projects. I believe they promised early delivery to backers, and then just flat out reneged on that. I think the same people, possibly under a different name, had done so on previous projects before too. So, you can buy it in stores, and they have expansions coming out, but I think the Kickstarter backers are still waiting to get their copies. There's a lot of hate throughout their Facebook page, DakkaDakka news thread, etc.. Quality seems solid though, so it seems like it's ok to buy it in stores, but I wouldn't trust them on Kickstarter or direct online purchases.

Wow! I don't know too many companies that screw over the kickstarter backers and survive.
