Note: the game’s development is nearly completed, we’ve entered the polishing phase. This Kickstarter campaign seeks your help to complete the expansions and produce the game.

  • Unique infiltration mechanics: move onto stealthy tiles to hide from the Nazis. You can also use captured enemy uniforms, shootsilenced weapons or take unsuspecting enemies down silently with close combat to avoid detection...
  • Weapons: use emblematic allied weapons... and turn enemy weapons against the Nazis.
  • Objectives: each game features the use of one or several Objective Cards that outline what players must accomplish: sabotage fuel depots, eliminate German officers, free prisoners, destroy grounded planes, protect a bridge, steal plans, etc.
  • Duration: each Objective Card takes approximatively 30 minutes to play through. You can play a short one-card scenario or a multi-hour campaign covering multiple Objective Cards.
  • Replayability: play Operations (Objective Cards placed in specific order) as suggested by the Operations Booklet or create yours in seconds by arranging Objective Cards as you wish.
  • Characters Variants: each character comes in 2 variants featuring different mechanics that allow new gameplay options.

Backers will be able to chose an English or French language edition using the survey afer the campaign.

Cooperate with the French Résistance to make D-Day the greatest success in military history!

  • New playable characters : the Spy and the French Résistante.
  • Additional enemies including new German Officers (who act as a living alarm) and Guard Dogs (excellent at spotting hidden commandos).
  • New Operations that can be combined with the core box to allow games up to 6 players.
  • New supplies: MG42 (high powered machine gun) and Air Drops (multiple supplies and weapons).
  • New Objective Cards: sabotage rails, free a counterfeiter, sneak British pilots out of occupied France, free civilian hostages, etc.

Stop Hitler's pet projects. Strike at the heart of his secret weapons installations.

  • New playable characters: Mortar Gunner and Intel Officer.
  • Additional enemies including new elite German Paratroops and Goliath tracked mine.
  • New Operations that can be combined with the core box to allow games up to 6 players.

Kickstarter exclusives remaining stock will be available at gaming conventions only.

The game has been extensively playtested since January 2014. Several hundreds of games have been played, with game industry professionals and with players at official events like Gen Con and local gaming pubs.

  • Because we need you for the last stretch of this amazing project. We've covered most of the costs for the graphic design and art. Now your support is needed for manufacturing.
  • You get the Gander exclusive canine character, perfect for diversions and quickly carrying supplies between commandos.
  • ALL strech goals provide additional content for the game and/or expansions, some of this content are free bonuses for backers (they will be sold separately months after game release for non backers): your support directly makes for a better game. Furthermore, pledging is the only way to get SS troops with the game!
  • Money-back Guarantee: If you don't like our game you can return it within 30 days for a refund (shipping excluded).

We love stealth videogames, tactical turn-based games and the richness of the WWII era. Here are some of the sources of inspiration:

  • Games will ship from within the US, Canada and France.
  • We selected experienced fullfilers like Amazon (North America) and Philibert (Europe) to expediate the process and provide quality packaging.
  • Closer to the ship date, once we know all the weights and box dimensions of unlocked Stretch Goals we'll be able to give you the exact shipping costs.

Europe (1) = France & Belgium

Europe (2) = United Kingdom, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Austria, Denmark, Ireland & Portugal.

Europe (3) = Hungary, Poland, Czech Republic, Greece, Iceland, Finland, Norway & Sweden.

Rest of the World = We will do our best to decrease shipping costs.

Risks and challenges

PLANNING
There's always a chance for delays in manufacturing, customs or shipping. Rest assured we'll do our best to react as fast as possible whenever such issues occur. Thus, we commit to maintain a timely, open communication channel with our backers.
While V-Commandos may be our first Kickstarter campaign, it is not by any mean our first game. We've been managing creative teams and game projects since 1998. The great majority of such projects were delivered on time and within budget.

MANUFACTURING
Manufacturing a board game is associated with inherent risks, such as insufficient quality as compared to demanded standards, delays in manufacturing and out-of-specs components.
We've spent the last year talking to various, established board games manufacturers. We seek to optimize costs, obtain the best possible quality and ensure that all components meet design specifications. We've settled on established manufacturers with offices in Canada or Europe in order to ensure timely and effective communications and resolve any potential issues.

MISSING & DAMAGED ITEMS
Given the complexity of component handling during the manufacturing process, it might happen that some components are either missing or damaged.
We designed the game so that there is a minimum amount of separate items within the box and no separate item outside of a box. After receiving your game(s), if you find out that some items are missing or damaged, please contact us at info@triton-noir.com and we will send you a replacement for the the missing or damaged items as fast as possible free of charge.
