About

 

 

SECTRE is a competitive strategy-based puzzle game for 2-6 players. Players take turns laying cards to form 9 different shapes, and connect like-colors to score points. This game has come a long way from its inception, and it's been tested extensively over the past three years. During that time, this game has become a fan favorite in our community. We are excited about this simple game of squares, and we hope that you are too! 

 

 

The SECTRE base game comes with 4 rule cards, 1 quad-fold board, 54 SECTRE cards, and 48 score cards. All cards are double-sided and made of 16pt card-stock. 

SECTRE Complete includes the base game plus all three expansions (Big Goal, Afterthought, and Neutral). This Complete version of SECTRE will only be available during this campaign, and possibly at conventions. If you're looking for an added challenge, or if you want more variability, then this Complete version is for you! 

Here are the expansions that you can expect to find in SECTRE Complete:

*Note that all Kickstarter Exclusive items will not be available after this campaign except possibly at conventions or during special promotions.

 

After some extensive research and cost comparing, we have discovered that it's just as easy to have our games made in the United States, which eliminates the risk of damage during marine shipping. All of our games will be made in Minnesota by a local printer. We will be able to control the quality of our games, and support local business at the same time. 

We are happy to provide free Domestic shipping (within the United States), and $5 International shipping for the duration of this campaign. We know that SECTRE is a great game that many will enjoy, and we want to make it easier for you to make that jump & try it for yourself. 

 

 

Risks and challenges

EDIT: Also, as stated in our FAQ, we are offering global shipping, but due to the scale of the project we were not advised to go the distribution route. The box has minimal size, weight and declared value. In the unlikely event that a package does get seized, Freshwater Game Company will absolutely reimburse the buyer for collection expenses.

We want you to receive your copies of SECTRE as quickly as possible, as we're rapidly approaching the holiday season, so all of the SECTRE art has already been delivered to our printers, and they are patiently waiting on standby for the order to be put in. Their turnaround is roughly 2-3 weeks, so we can have them delivered to your doorstep very quickly - we're estimating no later than February 2018, but hopefully sooner!

We also want to be as hands-on as possible, because we're excited about this game and we want to make sure that you get the best possible quality. All of our products are hand-collated and assembled by the Freshwater Team. Our printers are located here in the United States, so we don't have to worry about marine shipping and insurance. We can make sure that all of the orders are fulfilled quickly, efficiently, and personally.

We've taken a lot of time to make sure that all of our ducks are in a row with this project, carefully selecting the best printer to suit our needs, working closely with them throughout the whole process, and taking on a quality control team to ensure that your game gets to you in perfect condition.

We're also excited for all of you to enjoy SECTRE, so we are offering very low shipping anywhere in the world. Domestic shipping is free, and global shipping is minimal because we want to thank all of you for enjoying this game with us!
