Kingdom Builder: Marshlands, the third boxed expansion for Kingdom Builder designed by Donald X. Vaccarino, builds on this already exciting world of skill acquisition and land dominance.  

What makes the Marshlands expansion unique is the opportunity to double your extra actions and gain a third. There are 24 location tiles with 8 new actions and 8 summary cards for the edges of the board. If you collect a location tile for the second time, you can't only use the extra action two times, but you will also gain a bonus action tile, which either improves your extra action or is an unique action.

There are 4 new board quadrants with the Marshlands new land type on them. Marsh hexes are just like other land hexes. They are not water. Castles have been replaced with Palaces adding a different scoring possibility. To go along with this new land type, 5 Marsh terrain cards are added to the terrain deck. These have 2 terrain types on them, Marshes and one of the standard terrain types from the basic game, so they can be added even if you are not using this expansion.

Kingdom Builder: Marshlands is filled with different twists to this already classic game.   

All the set up and rules from Kingdom Builder the standard game apply. To use the Marshland expansion add the 5 Marsh terrain cards to the terrain deck. These have 2 terrain types on them, Marshes and one of the standard terrain types from the basic game so they can be used, even if you are not using this expansion.

Choose 4 of the board quadrants. This could be all 4 of the Marshland board quadrants or a combination of board quadrants from the basic game and the different Kingdom Builder expansions.

Doubling your extra actions and gaining a special bonus action is where this new expansion really shines.

Collecting 2 of the same location tiles gets you the corresponding extra action two times and earns you a 3rd action, a bonus action. For example you have collected the location tile Refuge. The extra action of this location lets you move one of your built settlements into an adjacent unoccupied land hex. If you collect a second Refuge, then in addition to getting to move twice via your Refuges, as abonus action you can also jump one piece in a straight line to the first empty land hex. This could move that piece into the adjacent hex - if that hex is empty - or over many occupied hexes. This could really change the game up and that’s only one example of a doubled extra action with the additional bonus action.

SHIPPING 

Brazil, Russia and Ukraine  

Due to the high customs charges and delivery challenges we no longer ship to Brazil, Russia or Ukraine. We apologize for this inconvenience.

Disclaimer

Our release policy for Kickstarter releases are the following. Games will be released once they are available in their particular region. The games will first be available in the EU. The US will be 6-8 weeks after that and for backers everywhere else (including Canada) it will be 8-10 weeks from the EU launch.

All additional costs that may occur because of custom duty or local charges are the backers responsibility.

Risks and challenges

Our toughest challenge with our previous projects has involved the coordination of production when a game is made with components from different manufacturers. This creates some logistics and shipping challenges that we want to improve upon. Going forward our plan is to minimize this situation so that we can better manage our production timeline and delivery. Due to circumstances out of our control like extreme weather delays of 2-3 months or longer can occur in individual cases.

Due to shipping time (ocean transit, customs, rail/truck, and final delivery), our release policy for Kickstarter Games releases is that they will be released in the EU when they are available since we produce in Holland. The USA will be 8-10 weeks after EU and for backers everywhere else including Canada could be 10-12 weeks or longer from the EU launch.
