As Kickstarters come and go I've maintained a passing interest in the projects offered up. To date though none have piqued my interest enough for me to become a paying backer.
That may all change with Chaosium's Kickstarter, "a re-imagining of the iconic Horror on the Orient Express, originally released in 1991." as the original boxed set is both difficult and expensive to obtain.
I've already played through the campaign with my old role-playing group and I look back fondly on those gaming sessions and our struggle against the many foes we faced.
Hopefully this re-imagining goes beyond the handouts and props to include some gentle re-writing to smooth out the flaws in this classic Call of Cthulhu campaign. A system cross-over with Trail of Cthulhu would also be nice, but perhaps this is asking a little too much of Chaosium.
As I'm writing this there are some 21 days to go and the original $20,000 goal has been smashed with the project trending towards a $200k+ finish.

Update! - UK based Kickstarters will be available from October 31st 2012.
