The Kickstarter campaign for Coldwater Crown: The Sea will be over VERY soon (or has already ended!). Thank you to ALL of our backers who pledged to help bring this game to life!!  

Did you miss the campaign?:  

When the campaign is over, we can't take any more pledges (and we won't be able to make any edits to this campaign page), but this is not the end. After we fulfill backer rewards, you will be able to find Coldwater Crown: The Sea in retail stores around the world and on the Bellwether Games website

Out of respect to our backers and everyone who supported us and sacrificed to help make this campaign a success, we are not planning to open a pre-order system for Coldwater Crown: The Sea until rewards have shipped to our backers.

To get in on the "ground floor" of all future Bellwether Games projects, including announcements for new Kickstarter launches or notification when Coldwater Crown: The Sea ships to retail, subscribe to receive our monthly notifications email. (Subscribers will also gain access to special promotions and game giveaways.)  

You can reach campaign creator Dennis Hoyle or Bellwether Games directly by emailing info@bellwethergames.com.

Coldwater Crown: The Sea is the first boxed expansion to the acclaimed 2017 board game Coldwater Crown, by Brian Suhre. 

With the addition of The Sea Expansion, you may use a Port action to go to Sea in search of new, big, deep water fish. Sea fish are especially lucrative to catch and can be caught with any color of bait, but while at Sea you won't be able to catch fish from the Shore, Lake or River. 

How long will you choose to ride the open waves in search of Pollack, Red Sea Bream or the massive Blue Shark, knowing that every turn at Sea is a turn lost at the mainland? Will you be able to snag an elusive Squid before the wind and the waves drive you leeward? Patience, planning and a little bit of luck will help you find victory in this elegant and strategic expansion to Coldwater Crown.

Don't own Coldwater Crown? Select pledge level "Base Game + The Sea Expansion" to receive a copy of both Coldwater Crown AND Coldwater Crown: The Sea - everything you need to play!

Coldwater Crown: The Sea adds five new species of fish, including one new wild-color Master Angler species, a beautifully illustrated Sea board and uniquely-scored Sea Challenge, one new turn option, four variable-assembly fishing vessels, one new type of fishing tackle, and expansion rules for solo-play.

Coldwater Crown is available through this Kickstarter campaign at a special price.

Risks and challenges

We've successfully fulfilled over 4,700 Kickstarter rewards!

Still, there are risks to any campaign:

-Manufacturing risks: We create all the files and send them to a third-party printer to produce. We've already sourced a manufacturer and printed production quality samples to make sure they can do it right.

-Logistical risks: After the games are produced, we'll be shipping them in bulk to our fulfillment facility. Delays and losses are possible during this stage of the process, but we'll keep you updated every step of the way.

-Fulfillment risks: We've fulfilled over 4,700 rewards successfully to backers of other projects, but sometimes things get lost in the mail. We are committed to getting you your reward despite any issues that might be encountered during in transit.

-Product risks: Finally, there is a risk that you may not be happy with the finished work. If this is you, you can return your reward within 4 weeks of receiving it for a full-refund of your pledged amount.
