 Seat Wars is a light family board game with a strategic take that mechanic, however, it does not seem as if directly attacking other players. Backers will receive Kickstarter exclusive content. 

At Detestable Games, we aim for the highest production quality in all our published games. Help us reach our funding goal and a many stretch goals to make Seat Wars the best it can be!

Since we are already funded, let us show you the first batch of Stretch Goals

 

  

Details about the mini-expansion will be revealed in the project updates.

 Please feel free to try the game so you can make up your mind if this is something you or a friend would enjoy to play. Below you will find the Print and Play files. Consider that not all the cards are included in the Print and Play. If you would like to receive the complete Print and Play with all alternate images, cards and exclusive Kickstarter content, you will be able to include it as an add-on.

Shipping

After manufacture is completed in China, we will ship to our fulfillment partners for each region. All the shipping fees are subsidized as we believe that Kickstarter backers should receive the game at a lower cost than the MSRP.

United States: Free shipping for US backers. Funagain Games will be in charge of fulfillment in your country. This is the first time (that we are aware of) a Mexican creator offers free shipping to our neighbors.

Mexico: Free shipping for MX backers. Aether Tower will be in charge of fulfillment in our country. In addition, backers located in CDMX or GDL, can select the local pickup reward tier to get their rewards as soon as manufacture is complete at La Caravana Gamelab. Meet the author of Seat Wars, Andrés Ayala, who will be there to sign copies, play a couple of games and share his experience about the entire project.

Canada: $5.40 CAD Friendly-shipping. Depending on the amount of Canadian backers we might work with Starlit Citadel or let Funagain Games contact their partners and then ship your rewards. (It will still be shipped from within your country).

Europe / UK: $5.40 € Friendly-shipping. GamesQuest will be in charge of fulfillment in your region.

Asia: We are working with VFI Asia to offer you a lower shipping fee and friendly-shipping.

Retailers

Whether you own a brick & mortar store, a board game cafe, an online store, or you are organizing a group pledge, if you want to pledge for 4 or more copies of Seat Wars, send us Direct Message and we will discuss the discount we can give you depending on the amount of copies, the shipping destination and the time you would like to pledge.

We are offering a bigger discount if you are pledging during the Kickstarter (because you will help us reach more Stretch Goals). But you may also commit payment during BackerKit or even via PayPal before we send you the copies (at a lower discount).

 After the campaign ends, we will use BackerKit to manage surveys. You WILL NOT be charged for shipping on BackerKit, but you will be able to pledge for additional copies, include the mini expansion or the print and play as an add-on. If your credit card charge is not successful on Kickstarter, you will be able to fix this on BackerKit.

Risks and challenges

OBJECTIVE
First of all, we want to let everyone know that the production quality we intend to achieve for the components, will satisfy even the most exigent gamers. Thick materials, top printing and a nice feel is what we seek.

POLICIES
This is the first board game we intend to publish. However, the team from Aether Tower is working very closely with us to ensure this project goes smoothly for you and reaches your hands in time. They have already managed and fulfilled many successful campaigns including our past Kickstarter to launch our board game cafe in Mexico City.

This will be a transparent campaign, if any issues occur, we will let you know through project updates which will be regularly posted after the campaign is funded.

We are so committed to publish all of our games that we will put money from our pockets if needed due to any undesired events. Let it be known that the finances for this campaign's fulfillment have already been sorted out, including the subsidized shipping fees which will be respected. We will not ask you for extra funds after the campaign, unless you wish to add extra copies, the Kickstarter mini-expansion or any other add-on that may come from this campaign.

The files for the base game are near done and we will be able to start manufacture in mid-January. We have considered the Chinese-New Year and we believe that we will be able to deliver on time or even before. Backers should answer their surveys before the indicated deadline to expect to receive their rewards at the promised time. Otherwise, their rewards might be sent on a second wave of deliveries.

Manufacture will be held in China and we aim to get top-quality production. If your copy of the game arrives damaged after shipping or has any missing components due to assembly problems, we will send you a replacement for no extra cost. We might ask you to return the other copy.

The extra funds collected will make this game better. We won't limit ourselves in terms of Stretch Goals. As long as the campaign is active we will keep including more and more stretch goals. We really want to make our games worth of having a place in your shelf.

CHALLENGES
Even though we are trying to offer you a flawless campaign, we don't know if this campaign will get enough backers to reach the funding goal. We have a large team that will work everyday in sharing the project. We would like to ask for your help to spread the word with a friend, a local store, or your social media.

RISKS
Currency exchange is always a risk. As mentioned before, if more money is needed, we will put money from our pockets to complete the fulfillment stage.

Third-party issues happening during manufacture or freight shipping will be treated in a case-by-case basis. We will share with you every progress related to the project.
