Air Marshal 

A Quartermaster General Expansion

This project's goal is to see if there is sufficient interest in this project for us to move forward, and raise some of the funds necessary to move the project forward. Our funding goals are modest, but we don't want to make a product that no one wants! 

Quartermaster General is a widely lauded fast-paced card driven board game about World War II. It is playable in 90 minutes, and gives players the same experience of much larger games in a much simpler, digestible format. More information can be found at Board Game Geek here:

About Air Marshal

Quartermaster General: Air Marshal adds two entirely new mechanics to Quartermaster General. 
  • Bolster cards are played directly from your hand at a time specified on the card, adding a whole new element of surprise and challenge to the game.
  • Your Air Forces provide an additional dimension to battle. Air Force pieces are deployed to the board through play of a Deploy Air Force card. Once in play, Air Forces may support Army or Navy units in the same space and apply additional pressure to adjacent enemy pieces.

Goals

Our number one goal is to gauge interest in this project. We hope folks are tempted by what we've shown them so far and are willing back this expansion in exchange a great game and some awesome bonus promos,  

$1,500 – Funded! -  Our minimum funding goal will provide us with enough working capital to be able to print the game by securing a loan (already guaranteed), and fulfill kickstarter rewards.  

$4,500 -   To celebrate this milestone, we will produce a “Peace Treaty” promo tile, which will be sent to kickstarter backers who pledge at least $10 (plus shipping).  (This stretch goal has been lowered!)

$6,000 - At this point I can get afford to kick in the remainder to get this game done, without a loan! We will produce an “Air Supply” promo tile, which will be sent to all backers who pledge at least $10 (plus shipping)

$9,500 -  This is my dream goal. To celebrate this milestone, we will add scoring sheets into every copy of Air Marshal!

15,000+? -  I'll let you know When we get to $7500!

Thanks!

First and foremost I want to thank my much beloved wife, Karin the Faerie Princess, my primary playtester and financial partner in this endeavor; and my daughter, who endures playing (and sometimes working) in convention booths with us because wants she wants to be with us.

Next I'll thank Illustrator, Art Director, & Gamer Nick Avallone for his artistic talents and gaming insights.

Air Marshal also has benefited from the direct contributions of: Eddie Rodriguez, Ken Mohler, Klaus Kneale, all the Quartermaster General geeks at BGG, and my Playtesters (names to come).

Risks and challenges

This project is largely complete except for the investment in production.

While we've had critical success with Quartermaster General and we are steadily building an audience, our growth has not been rapid enough to be able to fully fund an expansion. This Kickstarter will give us the working capital necessary to fund this expansion, and to gauge interest in the product to ensure we don’t print a game no one wants. Our goal is to have the game ready for Gen Con.

Griggling Games has already delivered four on-time products in the hobby gaming market. We fully understand the manufacturing schedule and do not believe we will run into any delays on this project.

Our biggest challenge has been spreading the word about Quartermaster General; if you love the game, help us spread the word, so we can all look forward to more games based on this system, more players to play against, and perhaps tournaments and organized play!

So if you haven't done so yet, and you love the game, rate and review Quartermaster General on boardgame geek, tell your friends about our kickstarter, or share our kickstarter on facebook, And most of all, teach your friends to play!
