About this project
“A frantic, head-to-head, real-time micro dice battler that plays in 5 minutes!”
BRACE FOR IMPACT! is a 2-Player micro dice game that requires lightning-quick decisions, dexterity and stamina. As a Naval Submarine Commander your mission is to either gather enough vital intel or destroy your enemy’s crew before your enemy beats you to it. Each Commander controls two dice and a meeple crew aboard a submarine equipped with torpedoes. Surface and dive, load and fire torpedoes and manage your crew to become victorious. Do you have what it takes to win?

Wondering how Brace for Impact! is played? No worries, we've got you covered:
THE SETUP: Prepare for your epic battle by separating the black and blue game pieces. Each player receives two dice, 1 chit, 1 torpedo, and 3 meeples of their color. The 8 intelligence gems and extra meeples are set off to the side within reach of both players.
Ready? START ROLLING! Engage your aquatic rival in a real-time, action-packed battle by rolling your dice. Manage to roll a 7 or doubles and you have a few options:
ON THE SURFACE: 7's on the surface allow you to dive underwater OR add 1 crew member. Doubles on the surface allow you to load your torpedo OR drop depth charges to remove 1 of your rival's gathered intelligence gems.
UNDERWATER: 7's underwater allow you to return to the surface OR gather 1 intelligence gem. Doubles underwater allow you to load your torpedo OR fire your torpedo (if loaded) to remove 1 of your rival's crew members.
Play continues until a player loses their entire crew or gathers 5 intelligence gems!

We’re Rampage Games. We created this company out of a love of playing and designing games. As you may already know us, we will sum up each of our team members in one sentence, so here goes!
Chris Rossetti is the lead designer, so he’s the man in charge and soul reason we have this game on Kickstarter. Nick Rossetti is the event coordinator and life-long guinea pig of Chris’ ingenious games, so he’s the guy flagging you down at all those gaming festivals and events. Stephen Rossetti is the marketer, so he’s the one to blame when you get all those notifications on social media. Last but not least, Tim Harms is the play tester and editor, so he’s the reason why one of our games doesn’t end up hidden in your closet for the next 20 years.
We have done it once, and we can do it again! But not without your help. For those of you who know of our successful Elements Kickstarter, every backer played a crucial role in our success. We now have our next Kickstarter challenge: Brace for Impact! We know Brace for Impact will not let you down. It is a quick, fun game that you can take anywhere on the go. We want to give everyone a chance to own a copy of this game and the only way we can accomplish that is with your help. Our goal is to produce the highest quality game we can, and with your pledge we can reach our goal!
3 great reasons to back today!
Early Access! - Every Kickstarter backer will receive Brace for Impact! before the general public!
Lower Prices! - Estimated Retail (including shipping) will be at least $15 USD, so you will save by backing this campaign!
Exclusive edition! - The Collector's edition of Brace for Impact! will not be available to the general public after the campaign!
Risks and challenges
This is our second Kickstarter Campaign. We learned a ton from our first campaign with regards to what works well (and what doesn't) and we are more prepared and experienced this time around. Elements, our first campaign, was successfully funded and shipped 5 months early with every backer receiving their pledge.
Brace for Impact! is a unique opportunity for us as we are sourcing the game components and manufacturing and shipping the games ourselves. We have reliable american suppliers for the needed game components and have a solid back up plan if commitments fall through. We have carefully calculated our product costs to provide you with the best value while still maintaining quality and we are confident that we can deliver this game to you.
Should any issues arise, we will be transparent with backers and address the issues head-on. If you have any questions or concerns, leave a comment or contact us through Kickstarter and we will respond promptly.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
