Smash Monster Rampage is a game for 1 - 5 players where you work together to defeat a giant monster before the city is destroyed. You also need to keep survivors out of harm's way lest they get caught in the cross-fire...

Position your tanks & helicopters and open fire on the monster! Every hit brings you closer to victory, but also allows the monster to potentially attack back. 

Be careful; if the monster destroys every building or too many survivors perish, the monster wins the day! You won't let that happen though, will you?

Alternately, one player can CONTROL the monster and wreak havoc on her friends...

EXPANSION CONTENTS

Here's a video showing a mockup of every currently planned expansion for Smash Monster Rampage:

ADD-INS

We have several add-ins you can add to your backing, too:

  • EXTRA BOARDS
  • VARIANT MONSTER DICE
  • ADDITIONAL UNITS
  • ONE-SHOT WEAPONS
  • SURVIVOR DECK

See the Add-In section for details on each one.

OVERFUNDS

Each overfund will add more content to the game that EVERYONE gets regardless of backer level. See below for details!

SHIPPING

Shipping to the US, Canada, and Mexico is free, and shipping worldwide is based on backer level. RAMPAGER, HERO, SURVIVOR and MAGNATE International shipping is now $39 for your half.

If you're an International backer at one of the levels above, go to "Manage My Pledge" and change yourself to a US backer. Then, set your funding level appropriately.


PRODUCTION

The final game will have high-quality pressboard pieces for the buildings, monster, units, survivors, and tokens. The buildings will also be scored to allow for proper folding. We've done cardboard in previous campaigns, with My Happy Farm and Jungle Ascent both turning out great.

Also, RAMPAGER, HERO, SURVIVOR, and MAGNATE tiers will get their copies in a special 'Kickstarter Edition' box big enough to hold all those monsters!

RAMPAGER, HERO, SURVIVOR, and MAGNATE levels will receive their copies in special 'Kickstarter Edition' boxes big enough to hold all 16 monsters, the base game, and everything else we unlock!

Everyone backing at least one copy of Smash Monster Rampage will receive a set of Survivor cards and a new board featuring a different city layout!

$60K - Building Modifiers

Everyone backing at least one copy of Smash Monster Rampage will receive a set of building toppers (radar dishes, watch posts, etc) that will give the players a bonus for as long as the building stands!

$70K - ???

No, really. What would you like to see at $70K?

Enjoy a change in scenery with two additional board layouts. These two boards only have 25 buildings each, giving more space for your ground units to maneuver but also making it easier for the monster to wreck the town!

Change up the monster's movement with three new die layouts color-coded to their difficulty. Green is the default die, yellow is harder, orange is harder still, and red is the hardest!

Customize your defense force with more units to choose from, including: firetrucks, soldiers, rocket trucks, jets, and artillery! Here's a look at the rules for the units.

Increase your attack options with these one-shot weapons: guided missiles, long-range missiles, mines, mortars, and stun missiles! Here's a look at the rules for the weapons.

Need another reason to rescue survivors during play? With the survivor deck, if you rescue at least one survivor on your turn, you'll get to draw a survivor card for a one-time bonus. Keep those folks safe!

Extra copies of Smash Monster Rampage can also be added to your backing for $33 for the first additional copy, and $31 for each additional copy after that. If backing at a level that already includes extra copies, each additional copy of Smash monster Rampage is $31.

Copies of unlocked monster expansions Unlocked overfund monster expansions can be added to your backing for $25 each.

International shipping for RAMPAGER, HERO, SURVIVOR, and MAGNATE

We'll be using USPS Large Flat Rate shipping boxes, so your share of International Shipping is $39.

EXTRAS

Avatars of all 19 monsters for you! (The three monsters no longer in the campaign are Centipede, Elemental, and Ants.) 

Risks and challenges

We are happy to announce that this is 5th Street Games' seventh Kickstarter project. We are a well-established gaming company with a printer, multiple distributors, and reliable shipping capabilities.

Our printing partner is Quality Playing Card out of Florida, and our featured artists on this project are Derek Bacon, Christopher McCullough, Ross Zapata, and Enshohma.

It is possible for delays to occur in three places: art assets taking longer than expected to create, production taking longer than estimated, or longer delivery from China than estimated. Should delays occur, backers will be kept in the know as to what's going on and why there's a delay.

Shipment time by boat can be imprecise due to waiting for containers to fill and weather, both of which are out of 5th Street's control. However, potential shipment delays are accounted for in the expected delivery dates above, and backers will be kept informed of any such delays and any updates about them.

Fulfillment of a previous campaign, Jungle Ascent, will be wrapping up at the beginning of the campaign. This will not interfere with Smash Monster Rampage, nor will Smash Monster Rampage interfere with Jungle Ascent.

Our last campaign, Baldrick's Tomb, is in production and will be fulfilled after this campaign has finished running. This will not interfere with Smash Monster Rampage, nor will Smash Monster Rampage interfere with Baldrick's Tomb.

Pre-production for our next project (working title "Mob Town") will also begin during this campaign. This will not interfere with Smash Monster Rampage.
