There will be two versions, one standard at 70 euros and the other Deluxe at 125 euros, the latter not being, in principle, available. only if purchased during the Kickstarter period. The Deluxe Edition will include a series of interesting extras, exclusive character minis and different monster minis, which in their standard version will be in cardboard exagons.
