I suggest skipping kickstarter altogether. Generally you pay more than you would at retail. Sometimes you get it later than retail. Generally there is no way to be sure it's actually a good game. The only positive is exclusives that you would otherwise pay a premium for if you are a completionist. Some kickstarter games don't make it to retail. Generally that means they were crap or too expensive for retail. Either way, not really a great buy.
Hundreds (thousands) of board games are published the traditional way every year. Once you buy all of those, then look at kickstarter.

You can have just as much fun buying the base game for sixty bucks later rather than getting sucked into the 150-300 range for the same game NOW WITH HORDES OF MINIS. But if you are into just owning a ton of miniatures they are a great deal.

The videos I've seen of the components were quite impressive. Wish it was coming earlier but I'm pretty confident it's not vaporware so spending the extra time to get it right is okay. Besides, with Gloomhaven making its way across the ocean I think I'll have my limited gaming space filled in a few weeks.
