About

Machines. 

The antithesis of humanity, gave birth to the threat of a whole new era of extinction. A threat that would never sleep, never breathe, never stop. Skynet has taken over most of the world leaving only the brave few to reclaim it. Now it is up to you to battle for the survival of mankind.

Terminator Genisys: Rise of the Resistance is a cooperative tactical board game for 1-4 players where you play as the leaders of the Resistance, liberating humankind from the clutches of the machines. Use the mission book to select your scenario or play through in campaign mode. Build the modular map and select your favorite resistance hero before engaging the Terminators in a battle for survival. Roll dice and allocate them to abilities, weapons, movement and more. Press on toward the next waypoint and don’t get overrun by the machines!

In Terminator Genisys: Rise of the Resistance you’ll be able to increase your Skynet inventory or simply add all the bells and whistles to your game. Take a look below to see all of the "optional buy" Expansions currently available. If you want to expand your game with one or more of these optional buys, all you have to do is click on the “Manage Your Pledge” button on the Terminator Genisys: Rise of the Resistance Kickstarter page, which appears once you have made any pledge. Then increase your pledge by the total value of the expansions you would like to purchase.  

For example, if you have pledged at the Fall of Skynet  level (which is £120), and you would also like to receive the Kickstarter Exclusive Norse Foundry All Chromed d6's and custom Terminator Dice, you would click on the “Manage Your Pledge” button, and increase your pledge from £120 to £180 (£120+£60 = £180). After the campaign, we will be using a pledge manager to confirm which optional buys you have paid for, so they can be added to your rewards!

 We have dozens of amazing stretch goals primed for unlocking! We are VERY excited to show them to you. We're going to show you the goals three at a time. As they get unlocked we'll reveal the next in the queue. 

Expect some serious goals at each milestone!  And keep a close eye on our current funding status between goals... we might get sneaky like the T-1000 and shape shift a few surprise goals in between!

* SOME OF THIS CAMPAIGN'S STRETCH GOAL CONTENT IS  KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE AND WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE AT RETAIL!

This project wouldn't be possible without the initiative and drive of these publishing, licensing and design partners;

Born in 2010, River Horse was created to publish Alessio Cavatore’s own series of games, but since its inception its resources have been stretched to accommodate the many companies who wanted to hire the services of River Horse’s pool of game designers and graphic designers.  

Since then, River Horse has produced or supported the production of many games.  

River Horse’s team includes a bunch of enthusiastic fellows with lots of experience in the fields of games design, web-based entrepreneurship and corporate licensing. As well as designing our own products, we aim to support and advise any company that can benefit from our experience and skills through consultancies, commissions, joint-ventures, etc.

 ALC STUDIO is a business facilitator focussing on the gaming industry. As such they are the gateway into Europe and specialize in localising and finding partners for the non English speaking territories.

Risks and challenges

Although of course there are risks and challenges to any new endeavour, the foreseeable obstacles on this project are small. We have run several successful Kickstarters before, delivering on time, and are confident that we will be able to deliver this exciting new game on time and with a high production standard.

SHIPPING AND DELIVERY

There are some variables in terms of timing when it comes to anything produced in China, such as:
Production delays
Shipping delays
Customs delays

The estimated delivery date is September 2018, but keep in mind this is only an estimate. Also, due to the logistics of international shipping, backers in different regions of the world may receive their rewards sooner than others.

To mitigate any delays, our rules, cards and components are fully designed and playtested and our production quotes are in with appropriate tolerances for any setbacks. Prototypes and mockups have been made to ensure that everything will be perfect for release. The only thing we need is you, the public, to make this the best product it can be!

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

By pledging to this project, you acknowledge that the final look, materials and content of the rewards (and the project) are subject to change and may differ substantially from what is presented while the Kickstarter project was active.

If you do not log in and confirm your pledge within 8 weeks of our notification via email to confirm your pledge, you agree that we have fulfilled our obligations to you in full for payment or donations received. However, we may, at our discretion, refund or ship your pledge if you contact us and confirm your pledge after the 8 week window has elapsed.

If you confirm your pledge within 8 weeks of our notification via email, you agree that our responsibility to you is to ship your order as entered into our pledge manager system, that title and risk passes to you upon delivery to a common carrier for such shipment, and you are responsible for import duties or any other duties that may be payable to the relevant tax authorities, providing correct address information and ensuring this address is deliverable by normal methods.

If you do not accept these terms, please do not pledge on this project but instead wait for the general release.
