Many Kickstarter campaigns have "early bird" specials. Basically, the first people to pledge get some kind of discount or exclusive item. Instead of taking that approach, and because it fits the spirit of the Special Forces, we're going to have a "1st on the Ground" Special.
In the spirit of being the 1st on the Ground, and the 1st to pledge, if we fund in the first day, then everyone who pledges for the Operator level and above throughout the Kickstarter will also receive a free US Airborne Special Forces Expansion!
By doing it this way, no one gets left out, and it becomes a team effort. Which is what Warfighter is all about. Let's make this happen!
Warfighter Modern Shadow War is EU and World-Friendly! We will pay all the VAT, import taxes, and other fees for you!
Since the release of Warfighter Modern, many people have been kind enough to post How to Play videos. Here are a few of those links...
There are many more How to Play, Unboxing, and Review videos on YouTube! Please check them out, and many thanks to the fine people who posted them!
Warfighter is a card game for 1 to 6 players. You play cooperatively with your friends against the system to complete Modern Special Forces squad-level combat missions.
Shadow War is a stand-alone Warfighter boxed game! The game includes all the Soldiers, Weapons, Equipment, Missions, Location, Objectives, and Hostiles you need to carryout covert Night Missions! Shadow War expands on the Night Combat rules first introduced in the Footlocker Expansion.
The core game gives you a full team of US Soldiers and a full set of North Korean Hostiles. Each Expansion then adds to these sets.
As with all Warfighter games and expansions, Shadow War is compatible with all the other Warfighter games!
In addition to the Shadow War boxed game and Expansions, this Kickstarter will also include many day combat Expansions! This includes new Nations as well as new Adversaries!
At the start of each mission, you each select one or more Soldiers, equip them with skills, weapons, and combat gear within the mission's Resource limit. You then fight your way through hostile territory and engage enemy soldiers, as you attempt to reach and complete your mission objective. Every mission is a stand-alone game. You build your Soldiers, select your Gear, and then run your mission. Within 30 to 60 minutes you will have succeeded or failed.
Warfighter uses a new combat system that takes into account the fire mode you select for your weapon, range to the target, running out of ammo, suppression fire, and cover - all in the same dice roll!
This system creates an incredibly deep narrative with every attack. As you eliminate soldiers, you gain experience to Upgun your Action cards, play Support cards, and activate special Skills.
We've added an interactive Noise system to the game. Every time your soldiers move or attack, they generate Noise, and the Hostiles have a chance to hear your team. If the Hostiles ever hear you, they will attempt to run for the alarm that will alert the entire base. During those precious few actions, you must do your best to down the Hostile before they reach the alarm and make your mission much more difficult to complete.
There are 3 levels of Soldiers in Warfighter: Player Soldiers, Non-Player Soldiers, and Squad Soldiers. If you think about it from a movie point of view...
Player Soldiers are the stars of the movie. You get to see all their details and really get to know them. They get Health, a hand of Action cards, Skills, detailed Weapon cards. These are the guys you know up-close and personal.
Non-Player Soldiers are the sidekicks and best friends of the stars.
Non-Player Soldiers have a cost and you purchase them at the start of a Mission as you would a Player Soldier. The NPSs don't hold a hand of Action cards. They have Weapons, Equipment, and Skills, and you use them as normal. They also have a number of Actions per turn based on their current Health. Instead of relying on Action cards for defense, they use the same Cover rules as the Hostiles.
This makes them much easier to run, and allows you to easily expand your squad.
Squad Soldiers are the guys standing in the background.
Their soldier cards include all their game info. They do not use other cards or Action cards. These Soldiers make it very easy to command an entire squad with a single player. They are also a great way to get new players into the game.

We are working on the new Universal Warfighter rulebook now. This rulebook has all the rules for all eras of Warfighter. The Universal rulebook is be based on the successful WWII Wave #1 rulebook. Here is a link to that rulebook...
In the spirit of Warfighter, we kept the Pledge Levels clean and simple...
This is for people who just want a taste of Warfighter, and haven't yet decided to jump in. These Pledges receive the Shadow Wars Core Game, but they do not receive any of the Stretch Goals unlocked during this Kickstarter Campaign. This Pledge Level may still purchase Add-Ons as normal.
This is for people who like Warfighter, or are new to Warfighter and want to jump right in. You will get the Shadow Wars Core Game and all the Stretch Goals this Kickstarter unlocks! This Pledge Level may purchase Add-Ons as normal.
This pledge level is for the people who want it all. This gives you Soldier Expansions, Shadow War Expansions, K9s and their Handlers! This level has it all!
If you would like to add any of the following items to your Pledge, please add their Add-On cost to your pledge. Once you pledge for the game, you can manually adjust your pledge amount to any value. We will run a Backerkit after the KS. Backerkit is a full shopping cart where you can select specific items. Unfortunately, KS has a very poor (ie no) system for doing this.
When we send out the Backerkit Surveys after this Kickstarter ends, we'll ask you to list the products you Added. We'll ship them all in the same package.
Your Add-Ons will not increase your shipping cost. We will cover the extra shipping charges. You can also Add-On more than one copy of the Warfighter products, such as a 2nd Core Game, etc. Just add the product's cost. Do not add additional shipping. We will cover the additional shipping cost.
Here are the details for how to enhance your Pledge Level with Add-Ons. We used these screen shots for our Warfighter WWII Kickstarter, and it seemed to be very helpful for people...

With several Kickstarter campaigns behind us, we are able to professionally deal with setbacks while keeping you, the backer, informed with what's happening every step of the way - and not just while the campaign is running. When funding closes and production starts, we aim to provide the most up-to-date information possible regarding each stage of the game's journey to your tabletop.
We believe that honesty is as important as regular contact with our backers. You can expect the very best from us, no matter what. As part of our honesty pledge, please be aware that we do not offer refunds after a Kickstarter campaign closes. We need the funds to pay the printer and to purchase the add-ons and stretch goals people have earned during the campaign. If you pledge, and later change your mind, that's okay, but you need to cancel your pledge before the campaign ends.
By working with high quality production facilities that we've dealt with during previous campaigns, we are confident that we'll be able to deliver the game in a timely manner. Our exacting standards mean that you're guaranteed to get a great game.
