Last Stand is a cooperative board game in which players assume the role of action heroes holding their ground against a battalion of enemy forces. Surrounded, the squad must work together in order to survive the onslaught and defeat the enemy forces' powerful general.

Each game round, enemy Minions will randomly enter the board, surrounding the heroes. The heroes will then have the opportunity to retaliate, utilizing their specialized skill sets, before the incoming enemy assault. As the game progresses, powerful Lieutenants will join the fray, bolstering the enemy ranks with deadly abilities. If the heroes can hold out long enough and defeat all of the Lieutenants, the General will have no choice but to confront the players for a final showdown!

Last Stand has a strong focus on teamwork. With 6 different heroes to choose from, players will have many options at their disposal when dealing with each encounter. Should the Combat Medic blast an enemy into your Demolitionist's well-placed mine? Maybe your Sharpshooter should use their 'Eagle Eye' skill to spot an enemy right in front of your close-quarters Brawler? Or perhaps the Heavy Support could drive an enemy out of position for the Femme Fatale to assassinate? No matter what you decide, Last Stand is sure to challenge your inner tactician and keep you on the edge of your seat with every roll of the dice!

Featuring artwork from cartoonist, Jayson Kretzer, players will encounter a diverse and stylized cast of enemies to fend off. Along with over a dozen different Minions and Lieutenants, Last Stand includes several powerful Generals to test your wits against: The Watcher, The Beast, and The Firestarter. Each General possesses special mechanics that will force you to alter your strategy and change the way you approach each game.

Last Stand has gone through extensive development, but we need your help to make the game a reality!  All of the project's design, art assets, and play-testing have been completed.  Your pledges will go directly towards the funding of Last Stand's production.  With your help, we are confident we will deliver a quality, team-oriented board game experience.

First and foremost, the project has always been about making an awesome and fun cooperative game. The current planned stretch goals will affect all pledged copies of Last Stand, and focus on improving the quality* and variety of the game.

*Improved component quality will entail a new manufacturer, and will delay the release of the game by several months from the current listed estimate.

Risks and challenges

Creating a professional, high quality board game entails many challenges. Fortunately, we have taken all of the necessary steps to have our bases covered during the development process.

Several Last Stand prototypes have been printed throughout development. The game has been play-tested extensively and enjoyed by many. Venues have included local game shops, such as Arena Comics & Gaming, and Panama City CreativeCon, where we have received invaluable feedback that has helped us throughout the development process.

Your pledges will make all the difference! Thank you so much for taking interest in our small corner of the vast board game world!
