6 Siege is one of the better skirmish games I’ve played. Heavy amounts of strategy and planning, light on the luck and with mitigation, and with enough content to keep the game fresh forever. It’s a game I enjoyed, I game I recommend, a game that has some of the best miniatures I’ve seen in board games….but should you back it?

Why I Look at the Value Return on Kickstarter Games –

  1. Great video, I backed the top tier for this. I am a huge rainbow six siege fan so as soon as I saw the kickstarter I had to support it. I am curious to see if all of the expansions are coming out at the same time as the base game or if it's going to be at a later date as this is my first time supporting a board game on kickstarter.

  2. i have enough skirmish games, ill never get to the table…no money from me

  3. Maybe its just me but is this One of the worst all in values ? Compare the 199 or 269 to what other companies offers at that prices

  4. Will 4 players be as fun or is 1 VS 1 the best mode to play?

  5. People should check out the game Tango Down. It's fiddly and has that classic Wargame quality of unmounted maps and unbelievably low quality counters instead of minis and no box (it comes in a "folio" (a big baggy)). But, importantly, it is significantly smaller to store, it doesn't come with a bunch of expansions that don't seem to really add much beyond extra plastic for mostly aesthetic reasons, it is overpriced because of the standard supply/demand (Wargames don't tend to shift big numbers so they cost a lot more for a lower quality product which in turn makes them even harder to sell to people and lowering the demand further, so yes it is very overpriced for what you get) but it still won't come close to how much you'll spend on just the postage of this game.

    I know I'm likely not speaking to the right audience for the game, but given I've only seen one channel discussing it (and a no channels that aren't specifically wargamers) and to me I just bought it, learnt the rules, and then this campaign popped up so I have to justify it, leave me alone! 😂😅 But I have no regrets because I don't play any one game enough to justify owning this much content for it, Tango Down has a number of scenarios that will likely play through and then sell the game on, but if I don't, it still takes up no space whatsoever (if anything it fills one of those annoying and unfillable gaps on my shelf). So for the maybe two people that might actually check it out, if even one person buys it I can say I supported a tiny indie publisher and saved them a few hundred £/$/€/¥/⌚

  6. I’m confused isn’t the retail price going to be $129? And the sale we’ll be getting will be $69 plus shipping?

  7. You nailed the majority of those operator names! Impressive especially since most players can’t even say Iana name correctly

  8. Woah. I never look at shipping when I back any games All-In, and I had completely forgot about this recent shipping fiasco, that is.. until this video. $60 USD to ship to Canada!? Ugh, now that's going to be a tough one to swallow, but I always go all-in because I believe that's the best way to hold value on most Kickstarter game. 😞

  9. F*ck shipping. I was feeling good about the premium pledge until the shipping.

  10. Sure looks lots like Imperial Assault with a modern tactical theme.

  11. I am from the rest of the world.
    Seems like the rest of the world is not really being considered a target market for this one.

  12. Man I was hoping this would be an easy back. However there are no Kickstarter exclusives currently that even sway me at all to not wait for retail. I might change my mind on day 10, so I will just wait and see as things unfold. Also Alex have you thought about throwing out some videos where you just ramble on while painting a mini?

  13. I don't think $81 is the MSRP. In the why back section it says that the Zero miniature costs $12 in the pledge manager so it would be $81 in the P.M. I could be wrong, but I'd guess the MSRP would be a little higher.

  14. Welp… sucks was hoping this would be an easy decision. Comments in KS did say that the $81 isn't MSRP but just factoring in the free character. Also said that if it makes retail be closer to $100, which highly doubt.. Maybe could throw some at a late pledge of Primal instead

  15. I do not play videogames so why should i have this ?

  16. Played it on TTS and I love it! Was hyped before, now even more!!! Basegame + Maps + 1 Year it is 😀

  17. R6 skins are not like CS:GO skins, if you get a skin in R6 you can not sell it, it's locked to that account. You could sell the account, but ya there is no steam market for R6.

  18. Ah… Remember the days when all KS games shipped for free?

  19. I'm looking at a minimum of 50-80usd shipping (potentially 150usd). I guess I'll pass.

  20. I’m in “Rest of the World” and Trooper pledge’s shipping fee is more than twice the price of the pledge itself🥺

  21. In the FAQ they state this version wont be available in Retail so the question is will the retail include more or less. Suspect if in pledge manager they sell alot of 3d decor it may well replace the cardboard.
    The only reason not to just pledge a $1 and not advance fund to the last minute is one alternate sculpt, which wil be available for $12 in PM. Everything else is tied to core or expansions, they have confirmed if you buy those the unlocks come with them. Gameplay e.g. maps would de enough but an alternate pose that adds zero gameplay and little aesthetically no way.

  22. You didn't give your usual IP analysis but it applies in spades here, they could have added a ten pack of guards with ViPs, Scientists , Safes and secrets to steal, terminals to hack, really expand the missions for the cost of the Day x packs and rule cards instead of operator profiles. Sicking to IP has narrowed it alot in scope. A little leeway and more gameplay would have attracted even more attention and backers , likely the digital gamers to, add SG around gameplay and could see this going over 2Million , beats Monster Hunyer and other recent KS Arena style battle games. (Note Special Ops modules are really cool)

  23. I'm wondering if the extra sculpts have different rules.

  24. $98 for a core is a tough sell. The game is cheap. The shipping is nearly 50%.

  25. I just happen to wonder if it isn't weird for Mythic to launch a new campaign as the pledge managers of HEL, and DARKEST DUNGEON, and SUPER FANT BRAWL 2 are still open. Am I the only backer to worry about this kind of stuff? I mean, how can I even seriously look into a new project if I don't beleive I can ever see it delivered at my door one day…?
    Thanks a lot Alex : I just needed to be convinced to wait for retail…

  26. I was planning on going all in, but I’m considering dropping my pledge with the lackluster daily unlocks. The first 3 days of unlocks all seem like they could fall into 1 day. If some of them fall into the expansions, that’s literally zero value for the core back, which would have been a tempting approach too.

  27. I need to know the sell value for ks exclusive skins. It should be more if it's indeed going to be exclusive. If I can sell the skin for most of shipping that would be nice. I don't own the game. It's a $20 retail game with steam sales. The skins could be a "rebate."

  28. I am curious if you think 6: S would work as an OP game.
