Arriving at City in Peril

We’ve always been avid fans of comic books and comic book heroes. The classic Superman and Batman cartoons of the 90s have been some of our favorites. About a year ago, we had an idea. What if you were Superman? What if you could look down on the city and zoom around saving people? What if you had other powers? Pretty soon, we were off and running developing a board game with exactly that dream in mind...

Pledge Levels

This is the core version of the game, and it will eventually be available to retailers.

The Dusk Edition of the game is exclusive to Kickstarter. You can only get it now during the campaign, and it will not be available in the future. When the sun goes down, new monsters emerge. The nighttime board features a new pattern of obstacles. You must adapt your strategies for this new undertaking. This version of the game also features a fifth miniature, a playmat, and a brand new Superstar power!

The Basics

City in Peril is a 2-4 player game where only one player is crowned the greatest hero of them all. Save the most civilians!

The Components

Check out an up-close and personal look of what comes with the game, starting with our board. The city was designed with a blooming effect, so that it looks great from every angle. Forget looking at a game upside-down or straining your neck just to understand what's going on. Our board is designed to cater to the players, wherever they may sit. Oh, and when it’s not your turn, try to find all the hidden Easter eggs!

For backers of the Dusk Edition, the nighttime board offers a refreshed look of the original city. The obstacles are rearranged to provide alternate gameplay.

The game comes with 13 unique powers (+1 for Dusk Edition) that can be paired into over 90 combos!

City in Peril comes with miniatures! Below are a few 3D renderings of them. The art isn’t final and will be touched up for the final version.

Stretch Goals

As a thank you for contributing to our campaign, here are a few of the stretch goals we hope to unlock!

Our first stretch goal is a new movement power called Vines. Who's ready to swing around the city?

Don't like some of the original civilians? Or just want longer gameplay? Here's a set of 100 more civilians that need your help!

Shipping

UPDATE: The prices for shipping outside of the US have been updated for the Dusk Edition. See "Dusk Edition (non-US backers)" in the Rewards section for the latest shipping rates.

We are based in the United States and can guarantee shipping rates of $10 per game for all US backers. See the Rewards section for details regarding other pledge levels and shipping destinations.

Risks and challenges

As the saying doesn’t go, this IS our first rodeo. We’ve been working hard over the past year playtesting, refining, and improving the game to its best possible form and the most fun experience to all playing the game.

Just like with most Kickstarter tabletop games, there can be unforeseen circumstances such as delays in the manufacturing process or complications in shipping. We’ve done our best to learn as much as we can before our first run at producing a board game in volume. We are confident we can get this done and have both a successful campaign and successful delivery to all of our backers.

While our funding goal may seem higher than similar projects, keep in mind that the shipping costs are included in the funding total because we add shipping costs right away.

We want to thank everyone who backs this project. You will be proud of the final product.
