About

 

Full Moon Jacket is a fast paced co-operative squad based miniature game that is easy to pick up and play for new players and provides tactical depth for seasoned war game veterans.

Your goal as elite soldiers is to locate, defend and extract the Colonel. Use your unique abilities and signature equipment to find bigger more powerful weapons, set traps and craft items to survive the night as endless Werewolves spawn throughout the Vietnam Jungle. 

Each game is unique, with reversible modular boards, random supply drops, werewolf spawns and the location of the colonel changing every game.

As a team you must work to change and adapt your plans and tactics to achieve your objective.

 

Each Horde Werewolf pose comes with 12 Werewolves.  More poses are in the Add-On section below.

Below is a quick overview of the set-up and play through of the Arcade Mode (a 'tutorial' mode) of Full Moon Jacket.    

The Game 'Map' is created with the use of the 6 modular reversible boards and can be put together in anyway the players choose.

There are several game modes in Full Moon Jacket. For casual play (arcade mode), hardcore gamers (survival mode) and a nightmare mode for those who want to sweat out every move of every turn!

There are six playable characters within Full Moon Jacket's core game. Each character brings their own unique passive, scavenging and 'one shot' skills to the game plus their own signature equipment to the fight.

Strangely Games is a Nottingham, UK based indie games designer and publisher. A one man team with barrels of passion and the desire to make tabletop games.

 Passion, Love & Opportunity.

Full Moon Jacket (FMJ) is Strangely Games' debut game. The game has been in progress for 1 year now and finally the opportunity and timing has arisen for a dream to become reality. It started as a project for myself to complete and has become an overwhelming and possibly life changing opportunity.  FMJ started life just over 12 months ago. From attaching post-it notes together and popping a few DnD werewolves around a map to an £11,000 multi-component boxed game. FMJ is a labour of love, influenced by games and films such as:  

  • Heroquest  
  • Space Crusade  
  • Dark World  
  • XCOM:Ufo Defense  
  • Predator Aliens  
  • Full Metal Jacket  
  • XCOM:Apocolypse  
  • Gears of War  
  • Last of Us  
  • XCOM:Enemty Within  

I have built FMJ on the one hand to be slick and simple enough for my parents, 7 year old son and casual gamers to pick up and play but on the other have the complexity that I and other veteran gamers will play over-and-over again.  

This project has let me connect with so many tabletop gamers, successful Kickstarters and so many professionals in the industry who I am lucky enough to now call my friends. 

"I Quit My Job!"

FMJ has been in development for over 12 months. 4 weeks ago I decided to quit my full time job as a graphic design tutor job to pursue my dream to become a board game designer and publisher. I have received an overwhelmingly positive response through playtesting FMJ and I am proud and excited to bring it to Kickstarter.

Why Kickstarter, Why Back It?

It’s a game about Werewolves in Vietnam!  

But seriously, a lot of time, money and effort has gone in to this project from the artwork, miniatures, building prototypes, attending conventions and play testing the game.  

Strangely games have laid the foundations. Now I need your help to make this dream a reality by supporting Full Moon Jacket and making your pledge. By pledging you will receive your own copy of the first edition complete with all of the stretch goals and rewards that get unlocked. You will give a passionate and dedicated gamer a shot in the industry and allow more games to be developed, designed and published by Strangely Games. 

I have tons of fresh concepts that need to burst onto the tabletop gaming scene and only with your help can I make that happen.

Risks and challenges

Risks and Challenges.

No board game comes without risks and challenges. When I said that my first Kickstarter project was going to involve miniatures people called me mad. Thankfully I met model maker Giorgio Bassani (Games Workshop) who has created all of the beautiful miniatures for Full Moon Jacket. Steam-forged (Dark Souls / Resident Evil 2 : the board game) have brought them to life using 3D printed master copies. With help from the guys at CMON (Zombicide, Rising Sun) they will be ready for production at their recommended Chinese factories.

When will it arrive?

Strangely Games are working with fulfilment companies Gamesquest UK and recommendations from Stonemaier Games (Viticulture, Scythe) - Ship Naked, USA.

We’re keeping it as simple as possible: support our project and in return we’ll send you the playable game.

Thank you.
