Final days of campaign! Please note that there have been many positive updates as we have revamped the campaign over the last month. Refer to the graphic pledge banners below rather than the text to your right for a more clear picture of all the stuff you get for your pledge. In particular look at Grinder, Double Feature, and Buckets of Blood. More free miniatures!

Hi there! Thanks for checking us out. My name is Jim Bailey of Grindhouse Games and I'm asking for your help to fund a proper re-launch of our Indy hit board game, Incursion, with all the plastic components and whistles and bells that we couldn't afford to do the first time around because of the massive up-front capital it required. 

The game system has been honed and refined over thousands of plays and several years of player feedback in preparation for this stunning second edition. In addition to new cover art on a much larger box, this exquisite edition contains detailed plastic miniatures and super high quality components with linen embossing. Existing fans will be aware of the SNAFU expansion to the base game that was previously released as a missions book with print and play components. Now, it is being released to accompany Incursion as a boxed game with similarly high-quality components and plastic miniatures. We're pretty excited!

INCURSION  boxed game cover below

Armored troopers of the US Lucky 7th hurtle through an underground bunker combating the monstrous forces of the German SWD (Special Weapons Development) in a furious race against time. The Doomsday Device is ticking and neither the Allies nor the Axis can fail. The mechanics of this two player game are simple to grasp allowing players to instantly focus on their tactical options. Players choose their forces for each mission through a card-based Requisition Point system making every game totally unique.

Contents:

SNAFU expansion

This expansion adds 18 new missions, solo play options, multi-board scenarios, reinforcements for the Lucky 7th and the German SWD as well as all the rules and miniatures for the third playable force in the game: the stalwart British MI-13 Commandos. Set Includes two large figures.

About Incursion

You can see a demo of Incursion in the video above. As I've said, this is the second edition of the game so it has been playtested over thousands of games by designers and fans alike.  We also invite you to hear what others have to say about it.  A good place to start is our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Grindhouse-Games/139536469402885

About us

Grindhouse Games has been here since the dawn of time: a twinkle of a preconception flitting about in the great sea of ideas to be. I think my brother John Bailey and I, Jim, always knew we would do this, somehow. We've been making stuff up and playing games since the seventies. We've been fortunate enough to meet, befriend, and work with a whole host of wonderfully creative industry people and passionate fans who have supported us over the last few years to get us to where we are today. This is Kickstarter, not the Iliad, so I won't start rolling off the long list :-). There is one person I do want to mention here, though: John Roberts. His relationship with me began years ago as a devout fan who kept poking me when he thought I was doing something wrong. Now he runs Grindhouse beside me. This Kickstarter is largely due to his quiet but persistent insistence. Come say hi on Facebook. We love to chat. Link posted above.

Risks and challenges

If the zombie apocalypse forces us to hole up in a bunker in Texas because we are under assault by brain-starved zeds, we'll likely not get your pledge rewards out to you until the world order is reestablished. This may take some time and unfortunately, many of you will not still be with us. If the cargo ship from China is hijacked by Indonesian pirates and the black market flooded with cheap Incursion, we'll just print more and get you your rewards. We are estimating a shipping date of March 2014. We hope to beat that. If there are delays, you'll be informed every step of the way. We can't predict the future but we can say that we'll do everything in our power to make good on your trust in us.

Grindhouse Games has successfully released two printings of Incursion 1st edition and one of the SNAFU expansion book as well as a full range of highly detailed white metal miniatures to accompany the game. We know exactly what it takes to complete and distribute a project like this because we've done it before. We stand by our work. It's that simple. John Roberts and I, Jim Bailey are always just an email away to deal with the inevitable issue or two that crops up, or just to chat. We're the real thing! Just ask around...

The images shown here in this Kickstarter are prototypical in nature and are subject to modification as this is not a final, finished, manufactured product. It's pretty close, though.

So, what are you waiting for? Go pledge, already!
