Mixtape Massacre: Escape from Tall Oaks

Introducing Mixtape Massacre: Escape from Tall Oaks, the highly anticipated sequel to the cult favorite board game, Mixtape Massacre. 

Escape from Tall Oaks is a meta-cooperative survival horror game where 2 - 6 players make their way through the maddening streets of Tall Oaks, rescuing residents, fighting off slashers, and completing tasks, all in an attempt to get the hell outta town…or die trying. 

Choose from one of six survivors, each with their own unique ability that provides you advantages throughout the game.

During your adventures, search for various supplies and weapons to assist you in rescues. But keep the noise down, as three main slashers will be waiting in the shadows ready to attack if you draw too much attention.

Rescue victims, find your friends, complete the necessary tasks to safeguard the town and make your escape.

Welcome back to Tall Oaks. Now run like hell.

Own the original game?

Combine the original game with Escape from Tall Oaks and expand the town, opening it up for a Slashers vs Survivors party, allowing for up to 12 players :) 

As much as Escape From Tall Oaks gameplay shares similarities with the original Mixtape Massacre, there are of course also new layers and differences to the gameplay, especially when putting you in the shoes of the victim.

Below is a quick overview of how some of the mechanics in the game work as well as the different pieces: 

Much like the first game, this game comes packed with an assortment of tricks and treats:

 LOCKDOWN EXPANSION Q&A - March 28th, 2019

Facebook Live Q&A - March, 20th, 2019

In development since the start of Escape From Tall Oaks, we wanted to make sure, as fans are always “dying” for new content, that we had something waiting in the wings to add more excitement to the game. The best part is this release has been designed for both Mixtape Massacre & Escape from Tall Oaks. 

Introducing, the Lockdown Expansion...

Lockdown is an expansion pack designed to introduce new content and mechanics for both the original Mixtape Massacre base game and Mixtape Massacre: Escape From Tall Oaks, as well as elements that can be used during cross-play between both base games. 

First, Lockdown introduces Sheriff Burton to the town of Tall Oaks. The expansion gives you the ability to play as him as one of the survivors in EFTO or make him the main adversary in the original Mixtape Massacre, as he hunts down the slashers one by one.

Not only does Lockdown introduce a new character, it arms slashers with their own Supply deck, includes new Supply cards for survivors containing traps, new weapons, and Sidetrack activators, a new new mechanic that activates “SIDETRACKS” which will trigger events reminiscent of the A-Bit of an Event cards from the Black Masque.

So what's in the box... 

More artwork to be revealed during the campaign...

And even more can be added with stretch goals.

We have some awesome plans for stretch goals that'll help grow our game even more! Check out what we have in store below and if we hit these marks in our campaign these items will be included into every copy of Mixtape Massacre: Escape From Tall Oaks. We even have ideas to open additional pledge levels with some fun surprises.

Check out the different Pledge Levels offered during the campaign: 

Looking to grab a copy of the original game?

US Residents - Head on over to our website to grab yourself a copy.

International Backers - The original Mixtape Massacre base game and other products (expansions, etc) will be available post Kickstarter as add-ons in our pledge manager, BackerKit.  

We've received a lot of love, high-fives, and support from fans, critics, and the horror and movie community. Here are just a few:

Shipping will be calculated separately after the Kickstarter campaign ends based on actual shipping costs and will be collected via Backerkit. This allows us to charge shipping fairly for all backers and avoid a "one size fits all" thought process for shipping.

Below are shipping estimates for the different pledge levels we're offering based upon regions. Again, these are just estimates. Costs may rise due to weight increases as more items are unlocked via stretch goals and add-on purchases you may choose to add. This will be calculated by Backerkit after backer surveys are turned in, post-Kickstarter Campaign.

These are rough estimates and cover the smallest to largest pledge levels for each area:

  •  US - $10 - $16 shipping
  •  CAN - $25 - $35 shipping
  •  EU  - $40 - $55 shipping
  •  AUS - $40 - $55 shipping

Risks and challenges

This is our third Kickstarter so we feel very secure in the post-Kickstarter process running extremely smooth for our backers.

We are working with our manufacturer, Panda Games, to ensure we create the best product possible. We instill our full trust in them, as we’ve worked with them in producing our base game, expansion, and booster packs. We couldn't be happier with how smooth the process has been with them on these projects.

We will communicate all updates on our project in a timely manner as your trust in us is very important. We want to make sure you get the best product possible and have the best time playing it.

As we've also had experiences with different fulfillment partners during our prior Kickstarters, we'll be waiting until the end of the Kickstarter to make a final decision on our shipping partner, to make sure we find the best fit for our campaign both in terms of price and service for our backers.

We are very grateful to our backers and fans for their excitement for this Kickstarter and look forward to welcoming new players to our little town of Tall Oaks.

Now get ready to run like hell.
