The much-loved historical board game Britannia returns! This edition includes over 200 beautifully sculpted plastic miniatures and two ways to play: Classic Britannia (traditional play for 3 or 4 gamers on the standard board) and Duel Britannia (faster play for 2 gamers on a new board). 

Britannia allows players to recreate the turbulent history of Britain from the coming of the Romans (in 43 A.D.) to final conquest by the Normans (1085 A.D.). Each player controls several nations and leaders including the Angles, Saxons, Irish, Norsemen, Danes, Boudicca, King Arthur, Offa, and many other recognisable names from British history. The power of each tribe will rise and fall as the game progresses through the centuries, so players must work out when to expand and when to consolidate with each of their nations. 

Classic Britannia plays in the way all Britannia fans know and love, benefiting from Lew Pulsipher’s continued development and player feedback. Duel Britannia is a new, fast-playing adaptation for two players, on a new board including Ireland.  

Britannia even has its own Wikipedia page - you can check it out HERE!  

RETAILERS: Scroll down to the Retailer section for info on joining the Britannia campaign. 

Our new edition of Britannia includes a double-sided board, two different sets of rules of play, and plenty of shared game components. This means you'll get you two Lew Pulsipher games in one box:

  •  Classic Britannia plays in the way all Britannia fans know and love, benefiting from Lew Pulsipher’s continued development and player feedback. Game play runs from 43 A.D. to 1085 A.D.
  •  Duel Britannia is a new, fast-playing adaptation for two players, on a new board including Ireland. Game play runs from 350 A.D. to 1050 A.D.

For a sneak peek at the prototype boards and miniatures we were showing off at UK Games Expo 2019, check out the OnTableTop.com interview with PSC Dan below. Please note that these components are still works in progress!

Some of you will remember how to play Britannia, having years of experience and enjoyment from the game so far! If not, this video shows you the basics.

Duel Britannia is a brand new game designed by Lew Pulsipher, based on the same principles and game style as Classic Britannia. It comes it the same box as its longer-playing sibling Classic Britannia, with a new game board printed on the back of the Classic board, shared miniatures, and its own rules. This video takes you through the basics.

These are comments that gamers have written on Boardgamegeek about previous editions of Britannia (Classic Britannia in our edition). As these refer to editions by other publishers, we have not included any comments relating to specific editions or components.

Retailers can join the Britannia campaign! You can order one or more cartons of games (6 games per carton) at the MSRP price, with an additional 10% discount on top of your standard trade terms, and will receive one set of stretch goals for every copy of the game you order. You can also order the games listed under the ‘Optional Buys’ section of this Kickstarter campaign. 

Please email Anita at PSC Games (anita-theplasticsoldierco@hotmail.co.uk) within the duration of the Kickstarter campaign (11 July to 1 August 2019) to confirm your order and make your payment, and to discuss trade terms if you are a new customer.

We are delighted to announce that we have dedicated Kickstarter fulfilment hubs in place for Britannia, offering cost-effective local shipping for our backers in the following locations: Australia, Canada, New Zealand, UK and USA. In other destinations, taxes and import duties may be charged by your local postal service. 

Shipping will be charged after the Kickstarter campaign ends. When the Kickstarter campaign ends, we will send you a shipping survey asking for your shipping address, and our pledge manager will use this to calculate and charge you for shipping.  

We cannot ship to PO Boxes domestically or internationally.     

Please note that the prices shown below are our current shipping estimates - which may change - for one copy of the game for Kickstarter backers (Raider and Invader Pledges). If you add optional buys to your pledge, your shipping cost will increase.

  • UK: GBP £8.50
  • USA: GBP £14.50
  • EU countries: GBP £11 to £15 (some exclusions apply)
  • Canada: GBP £16
  • Australia: GBP £16
  • New Zealand: GBP £16
  • Rest of the World (including Russia): GBP £45 (tracked & signed courier)

Risks and challenges

We are a seasoned Kickstarter publisher, with 14 successful campaigns under our belt. Britannia is our 15th Kickstarter campaign.

Unexpected delays may affect any production schedule. In our case, these would most likely be associated with shipping, manufacturing, or customs processes. Should any delays occur, we will endeavour to keep our backers up to date every step of the way.

Please keep in mind that the shipping date shown in our Kickstarter campaign is only an estimate. Items ordered as Optional Buys will be shipped at the same time as the Britannia game. Also, due to the logistics of international shipping, backers in some regions of the world may receive their rewards sooner than others.

Please note that our game's stretch goals and final design may differ from those shown in our campaign – sometimes we need to make technical changes as we go, improve our designs, or find a better way to do things. Items offered as a Kickstarter Exclusive are produced for Kickstarter backers, with remaining stock available at conventions and through special promotions only.

If you’re unsure about committing to our Kickstarter, please remember that you’ll be able to buy the game once it hits the shops, but without any Kickstarter Exclusives or the benefit of special Kickstarter prices.
