About this project
STRETCH GOAL #2 - $8200
When we reach $8200, a free copy of Salacious T will be included with every set of 2 resin teams. Salacious T was a blocker for the Naptown Roller Girls (and was made into a miniature with her permission). The resin teams could use a blocker with a more full figured profile and Salacious T will add that to your miniatures. (Salacious T is currently available as a add-on for $3 each)
STRETCH GOAL #1 - $4000 (UNLOCKED)
A free copy of the Joan of Dark Jammer will be included with every set of 2 resin teams. Joan of Dark was a player for the Naptown Roller Girls (and was made with her permission).
In 2012 after 2 years of development and playtesting by 35 different women's flat track roller derby teams in 5 different countries, Game Salute published Impact!'s board game Impact City Roller Derby.
Now several years later, Game Salute would like to sell the rights to the game and remaining stock back to Impact! Otherwise, the game would likely be destroyed and go out of print (this is a normal game life cycle for game publishers but we'd like to make sure this does not happen!). Impact! would like your help to get the funds to fully purchase the rights and remaining stock of Impact City Roller Derby.
To help us do that we are creating a brand new set of resin roller derby miniatures which this KickStarter will assist us to produce. In addition, we are offering the Impact City Roller Derby board game and our other sports games at really great prices. We have designed this KickStarter so that we can get all the rewards shipped out as quickly as possible so that you can bid on the reward and have it by Christmas 2016.
To give you a great deal we created some great deals on everything in the KickStarter but we also have 26 sets of 4 different sports games for the low reward price of $34. The items in the reward have a current retail value of $82 ($30 Board Game, $25 Roller Derby Minis, $12 Passing Shot, $5 Forceball and $10 Golf Dice).
The minis are 28mm scale unpainted resin miniatures. A set will have 2 teams of 5 Roller Derby miniatures (one Jammer, one Pivot and 3 Blockers) and a Referee (as a jam counter)
The new miniatures in resin will be our Glamour and Punk teams
You will also be able to choose from our previous created resin roller derby minis the Pro teams
If you would like to have both sets of roller derby miniatures with your reward. Add-on $20 to your reward to get an extra set of roller derby minis.
Each set of 2 roller derby teams also come with a Referee figure in the pose for showing Lead Jammer.
IMPACT ROLLER DERBY BOARD GAME
Impact City Roller Derby is a board game that captures all the action of the fastest growing sport in America – women’s flat track roller derby. Each player takes control of a team of five Rollergirls including a Jammer, Pivot and three Blockers. Your Jammer zooms around the track and scores points by weaving through the pack and passing your opponents Blockers. The Blockers play both offense and defense as they open up holes for your Jammer to whip them through and also attempt to slow down or send the opposing Jammer flying off her skates. Skate Fast….Hit Hard!
In Impact City Roller Derby, you get to simulate the speed, strategy and blocking that makes the sport so exciting. Each game is a series of short races, called jams, where your Jammer tries to score as many points as possible by lapping opposing player. Each player takes alternating turns moving their Rollergirls and making strategic decisions to help their cause or hinder the opponent.
The game can be played with Scrimmage rules in just 1 hour and the Full Bout rules can be played in under 2 hours.
Here is a great detailed playthrough of the board game: https://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/766820/playtesting-session-review-play-play Thomas Grimstad who did the detailed playthrough also did a 19 minute video walk-through. Thomas is a fan of the game and helped us develop the rules during playtesting so its not a professional video (fair warning): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p-kE__pEA2U
Impact City Roller Derby currently has a 5 star rating on Amazon.com (however the copies sold there do not have any resin miniatures).
We did a photography session with the Naptown Roller Girls (the national team from Indianapolis) to get real roller girls doing the moves that are on the cards you can play during the game.
And here is the board for the game
The main game is delivered with wooden Roller Derby meeples
OTHER SPORTS GAMES AVAILABLE
SALACIOUS T - BLOCKER MINIATURE in METAL - $3
Salacious T was a blocker for the Naptown Roller Girls (and was made into a miniature with her permission). The resin teams could use a blocker with a more full figured profile to really lay a beat down on opposing players and Salacious T will add that to your miniatures.
Forceball is our highly rated 2 player card game based on a game of futuristic hockey/lacrosse. The game is very fast paced with deep strategy and the rules can be scaled for an easy game to play with your children or a more strategic complex game to play with your adult friends.
This review by Drake's Flames gives you a good idea of how the game plays and the strategies involved: http://drakesflames.blogspot.com/2012/01/card-game-review-forceball.html
If you want to add-on Forceball to any reward add $4 to your total pledge.
Passing Shot is a dice game for two, that simulates a Tennis game in which each player takes a role of a Tennis Player. By means of consecutive dice rolls, the main aim of this game is trying to win points, games, sets and finally, the match. Each die has six facings, which are Ball (3 different colors), Out, Net and Energy. Through the use of the advance rules, players can do things like Approach the Net, Score an Ace, Second Serve, Play on different surfaces, Hawk-Eye, etc.
If you want to add-on Passing Shot to any reward add $10 to your total pledge.
The Dice Farmer game is a great game to quickly play with children to work on additional skills. You start with 3 6 sided dice and roll them. By adding the dice together you add more dice to your pool of dice that you roll each round. First player to reach 3 D20s wins. The colors might change from the picture but each different die type will have its own color to help it be recognized. Tom Vasel @ The Dice Tower did a review of the game here if you would like more information ( http://www.dicetower.com/game-video/dice-farmer-review-tom-vasel )
If you want to add-on Dice Farmer to any reward add $26 to your total pledge.
Golf Dice is a great travel game fitting easily in a pocket. Use the dice to play 9 or 18 holes either solo or with as many players as want to tee up. The dice determine how many strokes it took you to hole out with a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 9 with par at 72 for 18 holes. Your caddy is there to try to help save you from any major errors but you must use his advice wisely to get the best score and have the low score when you finish the course.
Golf Dice is only available as part of the CHRISTMAS SUPER BUNDLE reward.
As part of the KickStarter we are offering the Impact City Roller Derby board game along with a full set of 10 metal roller derby minis painted. They are our Pros teams. One is a set painted in Red/Blue and the other is in Orange/Purple.
Risks and challenges
Before we launched this KickStarter we have made sure the resin caster can have all the minis to us quickly in plenty of time to ship. We have a solid stock of the board games before the buy out. So we are ready for this quick turn-around Kickstarter and see no challenges to getting it completed.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
