About this project
Disclaimer: Havoc Boards are not to be confused with the game RISK®. RISK® is a registered trademark of Hasbro Inc., and neither Bungled Board Games L.L.C. nor Havoc Boards are associated with Hasbro Inc. in any way. A fully licensed copy of the game RISK® is necessary to utilize Havoc Boards to their full potential.
With that out of the way, let us be the first to introduce you to Havoc Boards! Havoc Boards are maps that can be used to play classic strategic war games on unique and real-life map locations. Each map has been painstakingly designed from scratch with incredible detail, with over six months of design going into our initial 15 maps!
Each map has been exactingly play-tested and offers an entirely unique playing experience. The maps are as geographically accurate as possible, with minor territorial changes to ensure excellent gameplay.
Remember, Havoc Board rewards include only a classic board style or engraved wood Havoc Board and one set of map specific territory cards, unique to the map ordered. If you intend to play Havoc Boards, but don't already own RISK®, go pick up a copy for the full Havoc experience!
Each board comes with a full set of territory cards unique to that map.
Please note that the pieces and dice in the image above do not come with any Havoc Board, they are from the game RISK® by Hasbro Inc. Scroll down to the Maps section to check out which maps we have to offer!
Voting Rights and Website Credit:
Every contributor will receive credit on our website www.bungledboardgames.com (Currently under construction) along with voting rights during the campaign. When the initial campaign goal is reached ($20,000) we will send out a one question survey to each contributor asking them to vote on which map will be released next. Every time another stretch goal is reached ($2,000 increments) contributors will have another chance to vote.
300 DPI Colored and Engraved Map Files (KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE):
For a $10 contribution ($8 add on), you will receive a digital Havoc Board file of any of the 15 launch maps, whether or not the map has been unlocked as a stretch goal for classic board release. Custom commissioned boards are not available for digital files. You can choose either a colored file for standard printing, or black and white with textures for your own laser engraving. Each file comes with the territory card files unique to that map. The digital maps will only be sold during the duration of this campaign.
Wooden Engraved Coasters (KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE):
For a $10 contribution ($8 add on), you will receive a coaster of any map we offer (any of the 15 launch maps and any custom commissioned map) engraved in high quality wood. Coasters are roughly 4.5" x 6" and are finished and sealed. These unique and artistic coasters are Havoc Board maps with legend and bridges removed. Coasters will only be sold during the duration of this campaign.
Special thanks to Greg Glatz (email@example.com) for providing us with the engraved coaster prototypes.
Strategic Expansion Set (Includes Power Pips!) (KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE):
For a $15 contribution ($12 add on) the strategic expansion set is yours! The expansion set includes a deck of strategy cards that can be used in conjunction with Havoc Boards or Hasbro Inc.'s RISK®. The cards add a deeper strategic element to the game, making it less dependent upon random rolls of the dice. Create stronger units, unleash zombies, enhance rolls, force cease fires, and create political discord among your enemies! This set comes with many extra strategy cards that will only be sold during this campaign. Place existing units on the power pips to distinguish new stronger units from regular units! This expansion is a must have if you love RISK® but want deeper game play.
Havoc Board (Classic Board Style):
Each board includes a full set of territory cards unique to that map.
For a $30 contribution ($27 Early Bird Special) you will receive your choice of any unlocked map in classic board style. Eight maps; The United States, New York City, The British Isles (previously titled The United Kingdom), Chicago IL, Boston MA, San Francisco Bay Area CA, Washington DC, and Europe are currently unlocked. As funding reaches our next stretch goal of $22,000, we will unlock a new map for classic board release, beginning with Los Angeles. Check the Map Status section for information on unlockable maps and the status of map voting.
Havoc Boards are 20" x 30", professional grade gaming boards. Included with each Havoc Board is a deck of territory cards unique to the map. Each map has been thoroughly play tested to ensure accurate territories and enjoyable gameplay. Only slight territorial changes are made in the interest of gameplay. And remember, in order to fully enjoy Havoc Boards, we strongly recommend purchase of a fully licensed copy of the game RISK® by Hasbro Inc.
Special thanks to Ad Magic Inc. (http://www.admagic.com/) for providing us with the classic board style prototypes.
Wooden Engraved Havoc Board:
For a $100 contribution ($90 Early Bird Special) every one of the 15 maps is available as a high quality engraved wooden board. Each map is hand finished and sealed. The laser engraving ensures exquisite detail, and each looks and feels like a work of art. Engraved maps are then laser cut into four interlocking pieces, ensuring convenient storage. Engraved boards will be roughly 24" x 32", which is much larger than typical board game boards. Included with each Havoc Board is a deck of territory cards unique to the map. Wooden board contributors can choose from any of the fifteen initial designs, as well as any custom commissioned maps available once the campaign has ended. In order to use these Havoc Boards to their full potential you will need a fully licensed copy of the game RISK® by Hasbro Inc.
For a $150 contribution ($135 Early Bird Special) you will receive one double-sided engraved board; one map on each side! These come with two decks of territory cards that are unique to the maps. Like all Havoc Boards, a fully licensed copy of Hasbro Inc. RISK® is necessary for full enjoyment.
Custom Havoc Board (KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE):
For a contribution of $500, we will design (with your consultation) a custom wood engraved Havoc Board and custom deck of territory cards. Custom boards are limited only by your imagination - be it city, university campus, state, country, backyard, inanimate object, animal, or historic battle. Once custom board designs are complete we will offer these for sale on our website. All custom boards are cut into four interlocking pieces for easy storage. Every engraved board of your design will have a tag on the board that reads:
Forever everyone will know who commissioned this playable piece of art! Remember, you are only limited to your imagination!
DISCLAIMER: You are limited not only by your imagination but also by the laws of the United States. We cannot design anything that someone else owns the rights to. For instance, we cannot make a Havoc Board of the land in Game of Thrones, anything Star Wars, Etc. Basically, if it is not in the public domain, we cannot make the board. We also reserve the right to deny any idea if it is against our core values at Bungled Board Games L.L.C. (We would not make a board including or espousing any hate speech, for example). If you donate $500 and we choose not to design the board for any of these reasons, we will refund you the full $500 immediately.
Custom Havoc Board, as with all others, need a fully licensed copy of the game RISK® by Hasbro Inc. for full enjoyment!
Special thanks to Hurricane Lasers (www.hurricanelasers.com) for providing us with beautiful engraved prototypes of the wooden boards.
Risks and challenges
Our greatest remaining challenge will be fulfilling backer rewards within our planned timeframe following funding. To address this challenge we have carefully planned production schedules for a multitude of scenarios and assembled a capable and reliable production team. While there is always the possibility of unforeseen circumstances causing production delay, we are confident that we can address those circumstances in a swift, open, and professional manner, minimizing or eliminating any delays or backer dissatisfaction.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Absolutely! Every Backer who orders a Havoc Board, including Early Bird Backers, won't need to select maps until the campaign has ended and all campaign Havoc Boards have been unlocked. We will contact you once the campaign has ended for your map selection.
Good question, $20,000 is what we need for batch orders of the three initially unlocked classic board models, a small laser engraver, cards, and wood. If we eclipse the campaign goal, we can afford more batch orders and unlock more maps in the classic board style!
We will contact all custom map Backers immediately to take your design request. That way, we can get a jump on the design process and note the newly unlocked map on the campaign page. If you aren't sure on the design right away, no worries. We'll be refreshing our email with baited breath to hear your choice. We will also contact you periodically throughout the design process to ensure the finished product matches your vision.
As of now, USA, NYC, The British Isles (previously titled The United Kingdom) are available in classic board style. We will update the page and provide campaign updates when a new map is available in classic board style. Every map is available in laser engraved wood (including the custom commissioned maps!).
Releasing a map in classic board style is expensive. In order to get the costs down to reasonable prices, a batch order of hundreds of boards is required, and it is on a map by map basis. As such, if we wanted to all maps to be available in classic board style at launch, we would have had to raise our goal from $20,000 to $64,000. We ultimately decided it would be best to initially launch just 3 and unlock the rest as the campaign went on.
Awesome! Getting user feedback on these maps is very important to us, and we will not ship a single map until it is 100% perfect. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what map you are referring to in the subject line, and any suggestions for improvement in the body of the email.
Thank you for speaking out. It will ultimately result in a better board for everyone!
Yes! Add $27 per additional classic board style board you would like to any pledge level. After the campaign is over we will ask each backer what map they want. Check the 'Map Status' to find out which maps are currently available in classic board style.
