Frequently Asked Questions
First of all, pick your pledge level. Each level contains set items and items to choose from.
Then pick from any of our Add-ons to boost your collection.
Finally, add one of our flat-rate shipping costs for your location.
Add it all up and pledge that amount!
If you'd like some more help, try out our Pledge Calculator:
Kickstarter doesn't support individual item pledges, so these will all be handled in a post-campaign pledge manager. Simply add up what you want and pledge that amount, then shortly after the Kickstarter is over we'll send out a Backerkit survey for you to complete. That's where you'll be able to specify exactly which miniatures, Faction Boxes, or Bundles you'd like.Last updated:
Every miniature in the Faction Boxes and Bundle sets is available separately. Every miniature has a little price label next to it. Just add that amount to your pledge, and you'll be able to specify the exact miniatures you want in the post-campaign pledge manager.
Note that the Faction Boxes and Bundle sets provide a great discount on ordering the individual miniatures!Last updated:
We're aiming to ship to backers in February 2018. It will be a single wave of shipping, no waiting for additional products.
The range will then be released at some point after that in waves. Nothing will be released before all backers have had their pledges shipped, and in some cases some miniatures may not be available in shops for several months after that!Last updated:
This is the best time to get involved in the game! Our new 2-Player Starter Box provides two factions, scenery, dice, templates, and the rulebook. The miniatures in this box are all one-piece so you can get playing within minutes of opening the box!
If you're looking for a little more, then the Faction Boxes are brilliant places to go. Each box contains a small gang, and the various Faction Boxes are balanced with each other, so you should be able to play against another person very easily!
After that, our Bundles provide additional miniatures for each faction. Most of these can be played on their own, but they're intended to boost an existing collection by providing different characters and lots of options.Last updated:
A typical game of Carnevale takes place on a 3'x3' board, and can range from 5 miniatures to many more! A 5 character game will take around 45 minutes to an hour, and a typical game of around 10-12 miniatures will take between 1 and 2 hours.
You can play bigger games too, or multiplayer games! Although we'd advise increasing the board size to a 4'x4' board, because it can get a little cramped in the canals!Last updated:
Carnevale is a fast-paced skirmish game that rewards daring movement and tactical thinking. You're just as likely to see a Capodecina jumping from rooftop to rooftop before pouncing on an enemy as you are to find an Ugdru-Rashaar stalking the canals looking for hapless victims to drown.
Managing your gang throughout a series of narrative campaign games is a must, and taking the right characters for each situation will help you to gain victory.Last updated:
That's okay! We're sure.
In fact, we've made our Beta rule set completely free to download, so you can try the game out right now. Go to our Facebook page and have a look at the rules for yourself!
Our open Beta means we can take on your suggestions and you can see exactly what direction we're taking the game. No more leaps of faith here, try it before you pledge!Last updated:
Aside from beautiful new resin miniatures? And massive discounts on bundles of scenery? And a 2-Player Starter Box to show your friends how easy it is to play the game?
Well there are a dozen characters that are new or haven't had miniatures before. There's a brand new rulebook and exclusive Kickstarter miniatures. Oh and of course there's a breath of new life into the world that you (and we) love, with a planned future for the game, evolving story, and rules that you can be part of! If there was ever a time to dust off your old Barnaboti and paint those buildings you never finished, now is that time!Last updated:
What about them? You want to use them in the new game? That's fine! There will be rules for every character from the old rulebook. Some of them will be tweaked a little to balance them and make each character a viable choice in a competitive game, but each will be able to be used.
As far as the miniatures go, the scale is staying the same, so there's no problem there. We think our new resin sculpts are gorgeous, and we hope you find ones you'll want to upgrade with, but if you want to keep playing with your existing metal miniatures, that's fine too!Last updated:
The miniatures are unpainted and made from resin in our in-house resin casting department. They're 28mm heroic scale. If you'd like more information, there are comparison photos in some of the campaign updates!Last updated:
Most of the miniatures in Carnevale are multi-part resin miniatures. There are some that come in one piece (plus a base), but the majority need assembling in order to cast the evocative and dynamic poses we've designed.
The 2-Player Starter Box however contains 1-piece miniatures we've specially designed to make it easy to play straight out of the box. These will slot right into their bases (and can be glued in for better support) so you can get playing within minutes.Last updated:
