If you have dropped by here a few days/hours late then go here and you might still be able to get this Expansion along with the KS rewards.  The link will confirm.  Final cost will also be more than what was offered on Kickstarter.   Only for a very limited time directly through 8th Summit's website. 

Agents of SMERSH: Swagman's Hope is the expansion to the 2012 Dice Tower award-nominated game, Agents of SMERSH.

7 STRETCH GOALS MET!  The Gambler and Secret Mission Cards will be given to buyers  of the expansion on KICKSTARTER!  Unless you opted for the Basic Level.

Also, be sure to like us on FACEBOOK.

If you have not played the original game, look to the bottom of this page for a video preview from Inside the Box. Or you may click here.  Also, click the banner below to purchase the original game, which is needed to play this new expansion (*Although not indicated on the page, free shipping to USA addresses, except HI, should be reflected when checking out*).  If you live in Hawaii,  contact me and you can add the base game to any pledge for $55.   Also, VERSION 2.0 of the official rules to the BASE game can be found here.   If you have not played the base game learn by using the updated 2.0 rules.  Swagman's Hope rules are nearly complete. They will be posted soon.

8th Summit's previous Kickstarter Projects:  
8th Summit came about over a year ago with the publication of the board game, Agents of SMERSH, which collected over 100k in pre-orders.  Focusing on theme rich games, today we have two game releases and a third Kickstarter project that was funded successfully earlier this year: a game from the legendary Wolfgang Kramer called Expedition. That game will be released to the market this year.   This expansion is our 4th project.

Why Kickstarter? Our first three games most definitely could not have been printed without the help of Kickstarter or some other funding source.   Our company is growing and while it is possible, by stretching our funds, to print this expansion without the use of Kickstarter, we would have to scale down the game quite a bit and would only be able to print a very limited number.   Establishing a publishing company is tough, even when that company has had a few minor successes.   If you like the kind of games we publish, then you will see a lot more games with a storytelilng bent coming from 8th Summit.   We have a lineup of potential games in the pipeline, including a children's storytelling game.   Thanks so much for helping us build toward a success.

    *NEW BECOME THE GAMBLER HENCHMAN. The other large pledge went almost immediately and while I do not want to any more UN Characters at the moment, you can make The Gambler Henchman a reality. You will be illustrated by one of our illustrators - most likely George Patsouras who did all the great illustrations in the base game - from you likeness. This will go onto the Henchmen Card for The Gambler and you will be the first customer to be a Henchman. We will pick your outfit and pose. The Gambler is originally a stretch goal but if you make this happen, it is no longer a stretch goal to be met. Also receive a copy of the expansion with Kickstarter stretches. Need the Base Game too? Send me a message and we can add that as well. Add $60 for a Dice Tower. FREE SHIPPING WORLDWIDE.
