About

----------- FUNDING CANCELLED -- THANK YOU TO OUR BACKERS.

It was a hard choice, but the holidays have proven to be a momentum stopper and the project will return, new and improved after we go through another round of testing and tweaking to make sure we have the best value, and try to lower the price point and goal for an even better project!

THANKS TO ALL WHO PLEDGE!  WE WILL BE BACK!! --------------

For over three centuries, the population of Evenia knew only peace and prosperity. Civilizations grew, generations blossomed, life happened. It was a glorious time of immemorial beauty and love.

But all of that was before the darkness shrouded everything. Before the hordes arrived. Before...YOU!

And you are here to PILLAGE!

Welcome to PILLAGE!, a card game designed for 1-4 players whose team of monsters will ransack, rob, steal, and... well... pillage their way through a locale of the once peaceful lands of Evenia.

Playing as group of goblins, kobolds, ogres, or orcs, players battle both the surprises from Pillage Deck, and each other, in a selfish attempt to pillage the village bare in order to have the most victory or PILLAGE! Points by the time the last card from the location is drawn.

Sound easy? Get pillaging and find out!

RULES!!  Download the Pillage! Beta Rules here!

Game Contents

The Core Set features three locations awaiting your decimation: 
 - The Village of Happiness  - Smiley Town  - City of Joy ... don’t those just SOUND like places you want to destroy?

UPDATE: We have added The Dwarven Tomb, another 60 card pillage pack to the base game!!

And, of course, you’ll need the monsters to do it.

Say “hello” to our little friends:
 - Goblins
 - Kobolds
 - Ogres
 - Orcs

The Ogre Engineer
The Ogre Engineer
The Goblin Mystic
The Goblin Mystic

Each race has a special “racial ability” unique to them, but also four classes whose abilities perpetuate across all races:
 - Mystic
 - Scout
 - Warlord

UPDATE: We have also added The Engineer to the base class list!

The Kobold Mystic
The Kobold Mystic

Along with four Quick Start cards and a d6, you and your frienemies are off to conquer the world of men, elves, dwarves, gnomes and all of those other nice races. BARF!

PILLAGE! is an easily configurable card game; decrease the difficulty, or ramp it up to INSANITY! However you enjoy playing. All we hope you do is play, and play often.

If successful, the plan for PILLAGE! is to release expansion packs (called PILLAGE! Packs) containing new monsters, classes and - of course - locations to pillage, once a quarter from now until you quit buying them. The difficulty for each will vary by locale, as you continue your ravenous rampage through Evenia.  But rest assured, each one will be unique and exciting, with enough challenges to shake a kobold at!

We appreciate your interest in PILLAGE! and if you have questions please email the PILLAGE! team at: GoblinsUnite@gmail.com

Thank you for your support, now...get PILLAGING!!!

FEEDBACK:

Pillage! has been playtested for many months, and recently received these comments from GENCON 2013, where it was tested by a large group of people...

"My girlfriend will ACTUALLY play this game with me. And no, she's not a gamer." - Kyle from Texas

"I am 27 and married,. I would enjoy playing this game with the wife and other couples, friends, and family." - Dan from Michigan

"It moves fast enough between turns that down time isn't an issue." - Nathan Vondras from Michigan

"Fun from start to finish." - Jim Giguere from Ohio

"Good game for people to play while waiting for people to gather on a board game night." - Scott Veenvliet from Ontario, Canada

What About Stretch Goals!?!?!  Well, we have you covered!

At 100, 200, 300, 400 and 500 facebook shares, we introduce a new HERO!  These heroes come out and defend the village against all the monsters and must be engaged until they are defeated.  

At 50, 100, 200 and 300 Board Game Geek Fans at the Pillage Page will unlock a new class of monster. Other classes are the Rogue, the Arsonist and the Assassin.

Monetary goals will trigger the big stuff, like 60-card Pillage Packs and New Races that are slated as expansions, but will be brought into the game at certain levels.

At $24,000 - The Trolls, a new Race will be added to the game.
At $28,000 - The Zombies, another new race is added to the game
At $34,000 - The Dragon's Lair, a 60-card expansion Pillage Pack, is added to the game.
At $37,000 - The Werewolves, another new race, is added to the game
At $40,000 - The Vampires, another race, is added to the game
At $44,000 - The Island of Bliss, another 60-card Pillage Pack and a bigger box get added!
At $50,000 - We will add Skeletons and Ghosts, 2 new races, to the game.

If we get beyond that, well, we will be working on more stuff to add to the game, but we want you to see all the great stuff that $25 will buy you.  If we can hit these goals, the box will be bigger, and you will get almost 450 cards that can make for a huge battle royal with any degree of difficulty you need in your pillage pack!

Risks and challenges

Pillage has been in development for over 18 months. The rules are solid, and it has been playtested at several public playtests, as well as a large scale blind playtest at GENCON 2013.

The risks are the same as other projects in the board game industry, we have to secure production in a reasonable time frame, ensure our artist hits his deadlines, and then there is a boat trip to the states from our production house in China.

We are pleased to announce that we will continue our production agreement with Mayday Games, the same factory we used for EONS. The quality is superb, we know who we are dealing with and we have established a good working relationship with them. That said, there are still risks in the time line. Even though we have never been late on a kickstarter and just to be safe, to account for the Chinese New Year, we have allowed extra time for this endeavor. We certainly hope you will see your game before June.
