About

 The concept for this game came about from a desire to be able to enjoy time with family and friends. I wanted a game that didn't last hours on end like most board games did that usually caused people to get bored and quit. I also wanted to be sure the game created a atmosphere of competition that in order to win you had to make strategic plays to hinder opponents without necessarily targeting one individual. The first attempt at this board game landed pretty close to perfect and with just a few adjustments I had a playable board game that had appeal with all who played. Once we played the game with friends and family several times I had one finial request which was to make the hero cards more versatile. So from this request I took these cards gave them some standard points in their skills and gave players the ability to add a couple of other points into the skills they would prefer.

  The game is quite simple to play and set up. To start choose your hero or you can shuffle them and pass them out the choice is yours. Once that is done Shuffle the other decks of cards which include the resource cards, situation cards, zombie cards and Scavenger Team Cards. First you want to deal out the Scavenger Team Cards. Since there are combat cards and support cards you may wish to separate these so you can ensure that every player receives one support card in the beginning. Each player should be dealt one support card and 3 scavenger team cards that are placed face up so everyone can see. Next you deal out the resource cards. Each player should receive 3 of these cards which you do not show to other players.

 Next you place the zombie, situation, resource, Scavenger Team and objective card decks to the side (it is best to have a game master to keep up with these). All player pieces are placed in the center of the board in the sanctuary and then two objective cards are turned over to start the game(this is for 4 players, you may turn over more objectives depending on the number of players). To play you roll the dice and travel toward the objective of your choice. Along the way you may encounter zombies, pick up other scavenger team members (only a total of 5 in your hand at once) or find more resources (only 5 in your hand at once).

 Once you reach your objective you roll the dice to find out how many zombies are in the building. Once you know how many zombies there are draw from the zombie deck to see what kind you will be fighting. Use scavenger team members along with resource cards or use your hero to engage these zombies. Once all are dead you obtain the objective and head to your next one. In the case that you have lost all scavenger team members and your hero is near death you may choose to abandon the objective where you must fall back to the sanctuary. For every turn you loose you will regain one health point and retrieve one new scavenger team member. Once you have completed 3 objectives head back to the sanctuary. First player back to the sanctuary that has completed 3 objectives wins, its that simple (you may add or remove objectives to control the length of the games).

                               What is the Funding For?

The funds acquired from this Kickstarter campaign will be used to cover the cost of custom artwork, development of the card decks & game board and drive down printing costs by allowing us to obtain a larger order of games. In appreciation for your assistance we will be providing different perk packages to choose from which I hope will appeal to you, our supporters. In addition if the game over funds I have a few stretch goals that will be applied only to the games purchased by the supporters of our campaign.

                                            Just the Perks

Our perk packages range from a small $1 dollar donations to a larger package of $2,000. These different packages provide you many options to show your support of the game. While reviewing our perk packages read them carefully for they have an entertaining story that paints the picture for the concept of the game. It will also provide you a clear understanding of the different perks in each package which includes items such as, numbered limited edition games, t-shirts, polo shirts, jackets and immortalizing yourself in all production runs as a hero or scavenger team member. Below are some pictures of the perks we plan to provide to our supporters.

Risks and challenges

All project can run into problems and in order of being pro active I have set several different contingency plans to take effect to reduce problems that may arise.

1) The first problem that can arise is delay in the development of the product. For this reason I have already created all the base set ups for the manufacturer so that all that will be needed is to input the artwork as it is acquired so we can go straight to print.

2) Another possible delay could be if we over fund the project that would initiate some ideas of neat improvements for the games that will only apply to the kickstarter campaign. These additions will be listed once we have reached our funding goals and getting closer to stretch goal funding requirements. We will also notify everyone how we will handle each one of these stretch goals improvments as they are reached.

3) The next possible delay would be acquiring over funding items and perk items. Since the game manufacturer does not have access to these items we have a back up plan to ship these items separately. As with all businesses communication is key and any set backs or delays will be communicated with our supporters by e-mail. They will also be able to send us e-mails or review updates on the processing of their orders through our website, survivegames.net.

4) Our greatest concern is getting the orders shipped to our supporters quickly, after all we are dealing US postal service and we all know government messes up almost everything they touch. However we intend to keep our customers updated through out the process and will up date our web site with pictures and possible video of us dealing with the shipment process so our supporters can laugh and mock us in the difficulty we are having dealing with the US postal service.

5) The very last possible issue that could arise would be lost or damaged packages. We will work with our supporters on any issues that may arise to ensure that their experience with this process is as painless as possible.
