Born to Serve - A Superpowered Game of Table Service

$6,815

Born to Serve is a board game competition between two to five jobless superheroes for the last job in town....at the local restaurant....waiting tables. Oh how the mighty have fallen! 

You are a superhero, virtuous, respected and dare we say loved by millions, well ok maybe not millions, but by more than a few people in the little town you and your super group have been tasked with protecting.  Unfortunately, the government has cut your group's funding and that means you all are going to need jobs to support your superhero lifestyle. Sadly, there is but one job to be had in town, at the local restaurant. The restaurant owner has decided to let you all try out for the job and whoever has the most tips by the end of the day gets it.

Born to Serve is a tabletop game that features resource management, area control, and variable powers for each player. 

Brief Overview

In Born to Serve players are recently unemployed second tier superheroes in competition for a single wait staff job at a restaurant. Each round heroes have five service markers they can use to either spend time serving a table or to enlist the help of the restaurant staff.

Tables that have been fully serviced are scored each round with the hero who has the most service markers on it getting the lion's share of the tip while those helping get much less. 

Of course, being superheroes, each of you also have two (nominally useful) powers that allows them to bend certain rules in their favor. The player who earns the most money in tips by the end of the day wins the job and the game

Born to Serve is available worldwide and will ship from within the US. We will be covering half of the US shipping cost of $14 which means $7 to you kind backer. Shipping fees for outside the US will be $16 because we are subtracting the amount for US shipping from your shipping cost. Shipping: US is $14 ($7 to backers) and Everywhere Else = $24 - $7 = $17 cost to you.  

VAT Free EU Shipping - We want our EU backers to pledge without fear of getting hit with a large VAT fee. So, should any of our Superhero level EU backers get hit with a VAT fee we will cover that expense. Simply provide us proof of the VAT you paid and your Paypal account and we will refund it to you.

Unfortunately we can not ship to Mexico, Brazil or Russia.

Risks and challenges

Shoot Again Games' goal is to deliver games that gamers want to play again and again. For us, game play and replay value come first. You can be confident when purchasing our games that you will get a game that has been thoroughly play tested and will engage your game group for years to come.

Shoot Again Games has already successfully run six Kickstarter campaigns, all of which have been delivered on-time or ahead of schedule.

Born to Serve is ready to be sent off to the printers as soon as the campaign ends and the funds clear.

Of course as with any project there is always a risk of delays, but we have done our best to minimize the chances of there being any. We pledge to keep our backers informed every step of the way.
