Help us make a whole new way to play your favorite game even better.
The Resistance: Avalon pits the forces of Good and Evil in a battle to control the future of civilization. Arthur represents the future of Britain, a promise of prosperity and honor, yet hidden among his brave warriors are Mordred's unscrupulous minions. These forces of evil are few in number but have knowledge of each other and remain hidden from all but one of Arthur's servants. Merlin alone knows the agents of evil, but he must speak of this only in riddles. If his true identity is discovered all will be lost.
The Resistance: Avalon is a stand alone game. It does not require you to have The Resistance to play, but it remains compatible so you can combine games.
Like the newly released 2nd Edition of The Resistance, The Resistance: Avalon features upgraded components from the 1st Edition of The Resistance. These upgrades include thick tokens for voting and tracking players on the quest (mission). The game also includes 6 tableaus, one for each player count, with incredible illustrations.
If you are so excited about this game, why do you need kickstarter funding to get it made?
It is all about what we call cashflow. Making board games is a cash intensive proposition. The time between when I pay for games (now) and when I get paid for them is upwards of 7 months, and that is in the best of circumstances. That takes a lot of money sitting in inventory, and that isn’t something that we have a lot of right now. I simply do not have the money in the account right now to get these games made in time for Essen without your support - and I really don't want to miss having these games at Essen, the biggest game show of the year!
So I hope that you support this project and help bring this very exciting new version of a great game to market.
Promo cards: To thank you, all support levels will receive special promotional cards (10 promo cards in total):
Excalibur: An additional mechanic that gives a player selected by the leader a strong ability every Quest. But this great strength must be used wisely, so choose carefully whom to entrust with its power.
Lancelot: 2 additional character cards,and 7 supporting cards, that can be played in three different ways.
With over a year in development, our plans are pretty set on what will come in the box, and what we have to offer as promos. I am not holding that back to offer later as stretch goals, nor am I offering an inflated price to be subsidized with "free" extras. We know what works best and have included that in the game box. The promo items are extras that require more explanation so best suited for expert gamers (such as yourselves) that can handle more complex rule explanations and will be more likely to appreciate the nuanced game play that they add to an already complete game. So that is a long way to explain that there aren't a whole slew of stretch goals that are waiting to be rolled out - and I won't be making things up to throw in as a marketing gimmick, if we have thought of it and tested it and liked it, its in the game already.
I have one very big, and what I think is a very exciting idea for a stretch goal that I need to full bake out before announcing. It will be a super stretch goal that will be included at every support level, but rather than get people excited for what might not happen or I might be able to deliver I'll wait to make sure that I can make it happen before making an announcement.
Best way to make this (and other ideas I might come up with) - stay positive, and be active in promoting the project. Click that "like" button and tell your friends on facebook about what you see here. Positive (and unfortunately Negative) comments are infectious!
