You get more stuff!
Everyone who backed the English version previously with a pledge that includes Stretch Goals will automatically receive anything that unlocks here! Just our way of saying thank you for being an original backer!Last updated:
We are very pleased to be able to say that we are EU Friendly! Items destined for EU locations will ship from the UK.
US and Canadian orders will ship from the US. All other orders will ship from one of those locations, whichever is most cost effective. If you are receiving an order outside of the US or EU, your local duties and taxes will apply.Last updated:
Kickstarter has a new shipping UI, which allows us to show shipping to specific countries. That's good, but the downside is that it's a long list, so they don't show it until you click the Pledge. It's okay to click to check the shipping, you won't pledge until you click through another step.
However, to save you some clicking here are the shipping costs for each pledge. Note that shipping inside the US is free, and all international shipping is the same price as listed below (meaning the country doesn't matter):
* Recruit and Recruit Plus: $15 USD
* Heavy Assault: $20 USD
* Heavy Assault Plus: $25 USD
* War Chest: $35 USD (it's...big)
* Big Box of Minis: $20
* Game Store 4-Pack: $80 USD (note that this is the only pledge where US shipping is charged)Last updated:
Absolutely! FTZ is a fully cooperative game, so one player can run each hero in turn.Last updated:
Yes! The game will ship with a scaling chart that will allow you to play as few as two heroes and as many as 4 in the core set, and up to 8 heroes at once in the Multi-Squad Location Pack missions!
Note that playing with more than 4 heroes will require you to add more monsters than come in a single Monster Family. If you don't have the additional Monster Family packs, you can add monsters from another family to reach the Spawn Pool size you need. You will also need another set of hero figures and and an additional Deck Pack for them.Last updated:
The game will have several types of terrain sets:
Forest - Outdoor
Town - Outdoor
Underground - Indoor
Building - Indoor
Desert Ruins - Outdoor
Experimental Lab - Indoor
Winter Bombed-out City - Outdoor
Occult Mansion - Indoor
The multi-squad missions have two arena/huge area battlefields, plus you will add 4 tiles from the core set to create a 2x8 monster board. There are two Multi-Squad packs, so that's 4 arenas total.Last updated:
The models are 28mm heroic scale! A human model will be between 35-40mm tall, an Elite figure will reach 50mm, and a boss figure will tower over both of them at 60mm. The figures will be made out of high-quality PVC plastic, and will not require assembly.Last updated:
What are the Monster Family Packs for? I already get those monster families in the core set and expansions!
The core set comes with the Children of Typhon, Infested, and the Fetch monster families, and the expansions come with the Thornspawn and the Bloodless (one family per expansion). So, what the heck would I do with another set?
A couple of things!
Multi-Squad Missions - These special missions (included in the Multi-Squad Location Packs) use double the amount of monsters in a family, including two bosses. Of course, you can substitute in another family that you already have to get the total number of monsters you need, if you don't mind deviating from the theme of that mission.
Increasing the default difficulty - The game comes with enough figures to set what we consider to be the default difficulty, which is actually pretty tough. However, if your squad is getting good and you're looking for more of a challenge, you can add more figures to the Spawn Pool, guaranteed to test even the most hardcore gamers!
Use as cool figures in other tabletop or RPG games - These are 28mm heroic scale, so you can use them with most other games, similar to how you would use the Reaper Mini figures.
Hide them around the house - Just kidding. Don't do this. My wife is still mad at me.Last updated:
These are used in two ways: exchanging with an existing monster of the same level (Minion, Elite, Boss) or adding to the total spawn pool for that mission.
Unique monsters can be exchanged for any monster in the mission of the same type. Be aware that Unique monsters are a bit tougher than their standard counterparts, so while the Daughter of Typhon can be swapped in for any Elite in your mission, she would be considered Elite+ for difficulty!

However, if your squad is getting good and you're looking for more of a challenge, you can add more figures to the Spawn Pool to increase the difficulty. You an either add additional monsters of the same kind if you have them, or add Unique monsters to not only increase the monster count, but also throw new abilities into the mix!Last updated:
The hero packs come with 4 heroes (one for each role: leader, close combat expert, marksman, demolitions/medic) and two Specialists. Since the hero abilities are derived from their unique role decks, the variant hero figures will have the same gameplay (and also the same customization using upgrades and focus cards).
However, each of the Specialists has a unique ability that is not found in any other pack!Last updated:
