MISSED THE KICKSTARTER? WHILE SUPPLIES LAST....  YOU CAN STILL GET THE  KICKSTARTER VERSION OF THE GAME.  WE ARE ORDERING EXTRA COPIES.  YOU CAN STILL ORDER  AT THE SAME PRICE AND GET ALL THE STRETCH GOALS UNTIL WE RUN OUT.

7 STRETCH GOALS REACHED! 

Run Fight or Die has circulated conventions for several years, long before the recent zombie craze. Most comments below are taken off boardgamegeek by actual players.

"While Zombicide was more fun than I expected, Run, Fight, or Die was an absolute blast." -Robert Burke, designer of Cartoona.

"Game is a ton of fun. It fits the same kind of design space as King of Tokyo. It's a bit more complicated, takes a bit more explaining, but I think I'm willing to say it's a better game. In short, I want it. Hurry up with it." - Josh L

."...the game is easy to pick up and play. The inexorable conveyor belt o' zombies mechanic was great, as were some of the survivors." - Rliyen

"...I do want to give the Geek nation my initial impressions of this game. Well here it is, .......This game is a blast!" - Mike S

Steve Avery, co-designer of Nothing Personal, says, "I think Run, Fight or Die will become one of the most popular dice games on the market. I love it. It especially stands out amongst zombie games; there simply is nothing like it."

WANT MORE THAN 1 COPY OF THE GAME?  If you would like to increase  the current number of copies of the game in your order, you should stay at your current pledge level and just double (or triple, etc) your pledge amount (you manually do the math). After the campaign is over I will send a survey to clarify what the extra funds you pledged are for.  If you need more information feel free to send me a message. 

You may add "Extras" to any pledge level. You simply do the math yourself and increase your pledge amount. We will send out surveys after Kickstarter asking you for information about anything extra you ordered.   You can see a graphic, middle of page,  about extras.  You may add $15 for each Mutant you want, if not included in your pledge already, or if you want extra Mutants.  Same with 5/6 Player Expansion (add $20).  Extra Walkers are $15.   A set of the additional Zombie Types (Crawler,  Runner,  Brute) with cards needed for play is $20 (which I accidentally underpriced!).  I will send an update this week clarifying "Extras".

 Run Fight or Die is easy to play - takes only 2 minutes to setup and you can start learning the game by simply rolling the dice! Each player has their own Player Board and Character Card, and their own group of zombies to fight off. Run Fight or Die plays in 30-60 minutes and can handle 6 players! And there are a variety of ways to play. You can play with or without the different zombies. The base game only contains the Walkers (60 of them!) but that's all you need to get started. It's a blast any way you set it up!

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS PLEASE READ: We offer lower INTERNATIONAL shipping rates only at one level (Run Fight or Die Harder! Level), shipped from the UK or Canada. This simplifies a rather complex issue for a Kickstarter and makes it easier for us to offer reduced shipping. For more information about International Shipping, please scroll to the bottom of this page.

MUTANT MINIATURE:  Limited Run!  You can buy additional Mutants at $15 each. You don't want to miss out on the 3+ INCH MUTANT miniature.   Chad is designing a miniature in such a way  so that the Mutant miniature should actually HOLD his attack cards.  Players pull a card from the Mutant's tentacles when he attacks.   The Mutant sits in the middle of the table and attacks all players.   In the Base Game (Run! Level),  the Mutant is only a large token.  This design will only get 1 print run!   This could be the only time you can get this miniature. 

ADDITIONAL STRETCH GOALS AND EXPANSIONS:
  • DIE! LEVEL ADDS DIFFERENT ZOMBIE TYPES AND MINIATURES, INCLUDING RUNNERS, WALKERS, AND MORE!   ALSO, A ZOMBIE MENACE DECK TO CONTROL THE NEW ZOMBIES.
  • MUTANT:  Limited Print Run!  LARGE MUTANT ZOMBIE  MINIATURE THAT'S OVER 3 INCHES TALL.  $15
  • 5/6 PLAYER EXPANSION. 
  • EXCLUSIVE:  JASPER CITY PACK (70K Goal)
  • CO-OP SCENARIO
  • FEMALE WALKER (IF UNLOCKED)
  • CRAWLER (IF UNLOCKED)
  • ADDITIONAL CHARACTER, LOCATION, EVENT CARDS.

YOU MAY ADD ON AS MANY EXTRAS AS YOU LIKE TO YOUR PLEDGE.

 If you have supported 8th Summit's Kickstarter games in the past you will know how popular our Kickstarter Rewards become after the games are released,  and the rewards are often very hard to come by later.  We make sure our KS rewards are not just "extra" components thrown in at the last moment, but game components that we spend months developing.   We still believe it important to give extra attention to those who purchase through Kickstarter.

KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVES:  The *Mutant Zombie* miniature offered through Kickstarter is exclusive.  This particular miniature will not be offered in the future. You must get it here!  It is available in the Run Fight or Die Harder Level or at any level if you add $15 to your pledge.

Also,  the Jasper City Follower Pack will be exclusive to this Kickstarter.   Once unlocked, it will be given to all Kickstarter supporters who purchase the base game or above.   Additional packs can be bought for $10 each.

All the miniatures were beautifully hand sculpted by Chad Hoverter, who also sculpted the miniatures to Mice & Mystics.  Chad spent months working on these sculptures to make sure they were just right.  Can you imagine 20 Walkers in Zone 1 about to crowd on you!?

Run, Fight or Die! is not just another zombie game, but it has been playtested extensively for 3-4 years, making the rounds to many conventions.  If you are interested in a game that not only has great miniatures but also masterful mechanics by a trusted game designer, Richard Launius, then Run, Fight or Die! is your game.  The response  from players is always the same,  "When can I buy this game?" 

 If interested in ordering other 8th Summit titles.  Here is a list of pricing, and these prices include shipping if shipped within the USA.

AGENTS OF SMERSH $45
ACE DETECTIVE  $40 (INCLUDES STRANGE TALES EXPANSION)
EXPEDITION: FAMOUS EXPLORERS $50

 INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING

We are most likely going to use a  fulfillment service for Europe and Canada (probably using Shipwire or Amazon), so we are offering lower shipping rates to those countries.  That may also mean a huge advantage to International Buyers in the EU and Canada as buyers in those countries would not need to pay Custom duties and fees for their packages since this will be paid by us to get them to the warehouses located there.  Other countries will be subject in customs fees.  Our use of a Fulfillment services is contingent upon an agreement with such service.  If, in the unlikely event, we decide not to use fulfillment - and this is unlikely since it would cost us a lot money -   then we will ship your game from the United States.    Very sorry about the uncertainty, but Fulfillment services change terms upon a whim and are subject to laws and restrictions in each individual country.    Hopefully we will be able to comfortably establish 8th Summit with a partner and these uncertainties will dissolve in the future.

Also, my apologies that we have not been able to set up anything for the rest of the world yet,   so we are only able to offer slightly reduced shipping rates at the Run Fight or Die Harder Level.  This applies for Asia and Australia and Africa.    If you are in a country and would like to help us with fulfillment please contact us.   We will continue to work on this to get prices down.

Run, Fight or Die! might be 8th Summit's most ambitious effort yet, definitely our most costly  - the game has been in development with us for almost a year, after being playtested for around 2-3 years.   We had to learn about miniatures and be able to absorb the cost so I decided to hunt down the best artists and best sculptor I could find.  Special thanks to Coolstuffinc and Grey Fox Games for their support.    Developing miniatures is costly and I wanted as much input as I could afford.

Initially there was some concern that the zombie genre was getting a little tired, but my worries were soon allayed when I saw personally the response of players to the game.   Everyone simply  goes bonkers for this game and several publishers were vying to publish it.   How could we not take on such a great game? 

Risks and challenges

Thanks for the continuing support. 8th Summit has several more games in the works - a children's storytelling game, a time travel game and a unique storytelling game that changes every time you play. But we need to have continued success to bring these products to the market.
