 I would like to thank everyone for your support of Tides of Infamy. We are entering the home stretch and thanks to you there are Twelve stretch goals unlocked, adding more cards, artwork, map tiles, pirate ships, a cloth bag, a flip top box, many component upgrades and the Ghost Ship.  I am confident you will also enjoy the 7 exclusive map tiles, 5th player ships, cloth bag and custom insert that will be included in this game for backers only.

Now lets knock out the next stretch goal!

Tides of Infamy is a high seas adventure fraught with peril, where you command your ships in a battle for infamy against fellow pirates, sea monsters, the elements and Pirate Luck.

Gain Marks of Infamy by successfully smuggling black market supplies, plundering settlements, salvaging treasure, raiding ships and exploring new waters as you sail into uncharted seas.

Be the first to gain notoriety through infamous deeds, but beware, untold dangers lurk in these waters!

*** Seven Exclusive Map Tiles ***

*** Twelve Stretch Goals Achieved ***

The Ghost Ship (stretch goal achieved):

4 + 2 (stretch goal achieved) = 6 sets of 3 ships (Man of War, Sloop of War and Bilander) in Red, Blue, Black, Brown, (TBD) and Purple and 1 Ghost Ship (picture coming).

 20 Map Tiles + 5 (stretch goal achieved) + 7 (Exclusive) + 4 (stretch goal achieved) = 36 Map Tiles

99 Marks of Infamy, 8 Plunder Tokens, 12 Shadow Trade Tokens, 5 Treasure Chest Tokens, 5 Harbor Tiles, 5 Player Reference Tiles, a flip top box and a cloth bag.

 Example cloth bag and flip top card box:

The Map, Movement cards & some of the Battle Cards were illustrated by John Ariosa.

40 Battle Cards + 20 (stretch goal achieved) = 60 Battle Cards

 54 Movement Cards + 18 (stretch goal achieved) = 72 Movement Cards

 The Pirate Luck Cards, some of the Battle Cards and all the Box Art was illustrated by Cory Godbey

Risks and challenges

The artwork for the game and the ship models are 100% complete. The artwork for the unhidden stretch goals, up to and including the Ghost Ship, is also 100% complete. Although these items are currently reserved for the expansion, they will be released with this game if their respective stretch goals are met.

We are already setup with Panda GM to manufacture the game. Panda GM has a proven track record for high quality games. There is risk that the shipment from our overseas manufacturer will be delayed in customs.

We are excited to make this game a reality with your support!
