WarQuest is back! This time with the first official new expansion!

If you are new to the world of WarQuest, we have created a Quickstart Companion rulebook so that people can quickly get started playing WarQuest. There are two parts to the rulebook:

1. The Quick Setup Guide which shows you how to setup WarQuest. 

2. The Companion Rulebook which lists information alphabetically for easy reference.

New to WarQuest? We have a small number of base games and massive six expansion boxed sets available in this campaign!

The WarQuest 5th player expansion introduces experienced units and the warlord faction's elite guard to the WarQuest experience. The 5th player expansion comes with the following:

1 Warlord, 2 Lieutenants, 30 experienced units: 4 Satyr Infantry, 2 Satyr Archer, 4 Dwarf Infantry, 2 Dwarf Crossbowman, 4 Elf Infantry, 2 Elf Archer, 4 Goblin Infantry,  2 Goblin Archer, 4 Orc Infantry, 2 Orc Archer, 5 Experience Dice, 5 Faction Dice, Setup Guide and Companion Rules

 

For those who like their maps in 1 piece, we have a deluxe option!

These maps are only at our USA fulfillment center and will have a shipping fee as follows: USA - $9 Canada - $18 EU/UK - $25 Worldwide - $30

Example: If you are in Canada, you would need to add $58 to your pledge for a map and its shipping.

 For those of you who want a few more goblins and elves in your lives...extremely helpful when playing WarQuest with 4 or 5 players.

 For those of you interested in a classic filler before and/or after your WarQuest campaign, we are also offering L4 Studio's other release, the 30th Anniversary Edition of Richard Borg's Liars Dice. 

Here is a glowing review of Liars Dice from the Dice Tower! - https://boardgamegeek.com/video/122691/liars-dice/richard-borgs-liars-dice-review-tom-vasel

WarQuest is a high fantasy/grand strategy game that immerses players in the world of Myrathia where each player takes the role of a warlord seeking to reunite the fractured land under his/her banner. During the game, players recruit different races (wood elves, dwarves, goblins, orcs and satyrs) to fill their armies, travel across the world of Myrathia, complete demanding quests, engage in ferocious battles, conquer and control strategic regions, and if successful, make themselves ruler of all Myrathia. The base game is for 2-4 players and takes 45 - 60 minutes per player. WarQuest is firmly rooted in the theme-driven, dice rolling, engaging fun of big box "Ameritrash" map and miniatures games with the advantages of newer mechanics and concepts that facilitate faster, more balanced and more dynamic gameplay.

All the miniatures shown on this page are the final production. What you see is what you get!

WarQuest miniatures are in 25mm scale (the warlord and lieutenant are 25mm foot to eye and some races are larger (orcs) and some are smaller (dwarves and goblins). The miniatures are made by the same team that made the miniatures for Zombicide and Arcadia Quest. 

The dwarves call the Kingdom of Kadem (south of Enhydros) home. Dwarves are the backbone of an army and take damage before other troops.

The wood elves live in the immense forests of Thulien (northeast of the Azure Kingdom). All wood elves learn the ways of the bow so their melee units also attack with the ranged units.

The goblins live west of the Kingdom of Ryke. Cowardly by nature, they will attack a fleeing army if they haven't already run themselves.

Satyrs inhabit the Forest of the Beastmen (East of Enhydros). Brave but undisciplined, if an enemy unit flees during battle, satyrs will pursue getting an additional attack.

Considered the most vile of the common races, the orcs populate Orugul  (north of the Spearpoint Barony). Orcs are ferocious in battle and their melee units enter battle in a state of rage that increases the power of their initial attack.

The Warlord and lieutenants are the leaders of your armies. They provide cohesion to the army and can fight with the melee troops as well as rally retreated units.

During the creation of Myrathia and WarQuest, Glenn and the team envisioned a game world well beyond the base game. As we were developing the system we had several expansions in mind for the game. Via the first Kickstarter campaign we offered early access to the figures and beta rules. A very small number of these still exist in our warehouse and this will be your only chance to pick these up in this big box expansion edition. Our hope is to do more expansions for the game and some of these may resurface in the following years but never as a giant bundle as pictured below. Don't miss your chance to massively expand your WarQuest experience!

The Expansion bundle includes 6 of the first 7 planned expansions (the 5th player expansion is the 7th - and is the first expansion planned for mass release).

The Limited Edition Wizard Expansion includes 12 figures - 3x each of the Air, Earth, Water and Fire Wizards

The folks at Boardgame Network made this great video going over the basics of the game. We really enjoy it and you should check it out!

 Boardgame Network also did a great unboxing video of WarQuest.

 We think the game looks GREAT and we hope you do too!

 We have some specialist figures in the design stage, and after all the new developments to the 5th player expansion we decided to offer these new miniatures as Stretch Rewards.

The first specialist is the Orc Halberdier. A powerful unit with 2 Attack AND 2 Defense!

Next in store is the Satyr Stick Fighter. A stronger Foot unit with 2 Attack!

Want more Stretch Rewards? So do we! Please help spread the word of WarQuest and check back each day to see what we might be able to unlock together!

 The WarQuest world has evolved quite a bit over the last 2 years. Don Beyer wrote an excellent Novella, and artists Ralph Horsely and Jarrod Blando created some amazing pieces of artwork we wanted to share.

Shipping is now added to your pledge via the Kickstarter shipping system. Simply pledge and it will prompt you to the proper level.

Countries Excluded: We are no longer able to ship to Brazil, Russia, Mexico, or the Middle East due to high postage prices, and lost parcels. If you live in one of these areas, we recommend you use a USA address and have the game forwarded to you via a relative/friend or postage forwarding company.

We continue to work with different fulfillment centers all over the world to ensure better, and more affordable delivery each campaign.

PLEASE NOTE: Damage may occur during transit by the various shipping carriers used. We wish this was not the case, but it can happen. Shipping Carriers pass their fees along to us, we do not set high postage rates. We subsidize all shipping and handling costs from our profits to help lower these costs for you, our backers, because it is important to us to help spread the word about our project and help our games and our company grow.

We are a small business who relies on shipping companies to fill our Kickstarter campaigns. PLEASE email our Customer Service (mrbgames.cs{at symbol}gmail.com) if you have any major issues with delivery/loss/damage that cannot be resolved with the carrier (IE always try your local post office first) and we will help assist you in resolving them. We will need your backer number, address and backer name in the email.

Artist - Ralph Horsley

Ralph has drawn and painted for pleasure for as long as he can remember, but his creations were given focus by two key childhood events; a teacher reading The Hobbit to his class, and the gift of Dungeons & Dragons as a birthday present. He quickly became a keen gamer who illustrated the worlds that he played in. Those passions inevitably led him down a natural path where his hobby became his career. He has worked for over two decades in the games industry producing artwork for, amongst many others, Dungeons and Dragons. World of Warcraft, Warhammer and of course Magic the Gathering. His roster of published cards totals over fifty with more on the way. He lives in Leeds, in the UK, and is still happiest when creating fantastical art and playing games.

Jacoby got his first exposure to graphic design while in high school, locked in a dark room, shooting film for other designers paste up layout years before computers took over the industry and the world. Years after being introduced to Photoshop 1, and Illustrator 88, he jumped into the world of Board Games when getting to work with Glenn Drover and Paul Niemeyer on the complete suite of Eagle Games titles. Since then he has done lots of projects both in and out of the board game world. He now spends his free time figuring out how to perfect each and every cup of coffee he drinks, as well as working outside in the garden with his wife and 11 chickens.

In the late 1970s his uncle Brian came down from Lake Geneva, Wisconsin and introduced him to a game that Brian's company had recently released.

Terms and Conditions

If for any reason, you find that after the Kickstarter has ended, you need to cancel, we will work with you to best make that happen.

If you cancel within 45 days of the end of the Kickstarter, we are able to do a complete refund via the Kickstarter payments system (including KS fees!)

After 45 days and up until the month before we ship the rewards, we are able to do a 90% refund (less Kickstarter and CC processing fees) via paypal.

For a refund request after shipping addresses have locked (aprox. 2-3 weeks before shipping), we ask you email us at mrbgames.cs (at) gmail.com and we will try to work with you for a partial refund if possible, but you will be responsible for return shipping.

If for any reason you feel you have a missing item or damaged item, please email us at mrbgames.cs (at) gmail.com with photos of damage, your backer number, backer name, and complete address and we will work to replace the missing or damaged items ASAP. Do not post in the comments, or other forums as we may miss them or be delayed in replying.

The following Terms are accepted by you, the backer when you pledge, so we can ensure smooth delivery for all.

Surveys not filled in after 3 months of final delivery (from the "we are shipping" update) or missing reward requests after 3 months of your game shipment will be treated as a no reward pledge. Please help us get you your rewards by emailing our CS with any issues you may have in a timely manner and filling in your survey in a timely manner!

Watch for updates on all shipping statuses. All our major communications will be via Updates.

By pledging to this project, you acknowledge that the final look and materials of the project and hence the rewards, are subject to change and may differ from what is presented while the Kickstarter campaign was active. If you do not accept these terms, please do not pledge on this project but instead wait for the possibility of a general release copy. We will always do our best to provide exactly what was pictured, but sometimes small details change or a card is removed and replaced with another, ect. The above campaign depicts our plan, but all plans can change at a factory level. Pledge with confidence, as we rarely alter our contents, and to date have only updated or added from development.

 

Risks and challenges

With every project there are risks, bringing WarQuest to the backers of the original project was a labor of love (and a labor!) We learned many good things from the original WarQuest campaign and feel that the experience has put us in a good position for future WarQuest campaigns.

We hope that our past track record in publishing, as well as Sean and Keith's design and development work at our previous publishing jobs will put everyone's minds at ease. Mr. B. Games has delivered on 11 of its 13 Kickstarter projects on time or early with only 2 being late (none more than 2 months). We are not new to the industry and have been making games in some capacity since 2005. With our previous experiences we can pool from the 20+ combined years of lessons (both good and bad) to ensure a smooth, and accurate production and delivery. We hope that you will help support us in our publishing efforts, and thank you in advance for your confidence in Mr. B. Games and L4 Studios!

L4 Studios has partnered with Mr. B. Games to help establish a smooth transition from end campaign to printing and fulfillment. Warquest is a co-published release so pledge with confidence that the print quality and shipping care will be handled by Mr. B. Games at a level of excellence and speed of their previously published projects.
