My 2 cents:

Galaxy Command must have been a short print run, because the quality to price ratio off by a long way. The game play is really fairly tedious and the components are wanting. It would be good value at half the price.

This is the 2nd item I have kickstarted with WP…I am now nervous about Band of Brothers. Fingers are crossed that this all comes together.

I have not had the chance to play HoldFast, and while I did find it a simple game to play, with some clever nuance in the use of action points, it too was a quality vs price bummer. I guess sometimes you just got to look past that and know what you are getting into.  It begs the question : Are their too many niche publishers?
