About

FIEF is a classic game of dynastic ambition in which players assume the roles of nobles in the 15th century kingdom of France, striving for control of Fief and Bishopric territories. To learn more about FIEF, please click here (BGG link). 

The purpose of this campaign is to produce 18 Kickstarter Exclusive Miniatures of the FIEF Lords and a Box with a custom foam storage, to keep the Miniatures perfectly protected. It will also allow the backers to get a copy of the new edition of the game: FIEF France* and other Kickstarter Exclusive content (see the Pledge Manager Add-ons section).

The miniatures are chess-like busts, that feel great and chunky to the touch. 

The new edition of FIEF: FIEF France* includes a new board: The FIEF France: Gameboard*, as well as rules (and a rulebook both EN/FR) for the Harbors.

*The Kickstarter Exclusive Fortune of Sea Calamity card will be offered to all those who select any pledge including FIEF France or will add FIEF France, the FIEF France: Gameboard or the Oversized FIEF France Mat in the Pledge Manager (see the Pledge Manager Add-ons section).

The following items may be purchased individually on the Pledge Manager that will open if the project funds, after the KS Campaign has ended. To access the Pledge Manager simply select one of the available pledges. Even the 1€ pledge will allow you to access the Pledge Manager. You will also be able to increase your credit to purchase further items, if you wish.

These items are perfect for those that own the old edition of FIEF and want to upgrade their game only with the new stuff, or with anything you like.

These are all the available add-ons, and their details:

The “18 Miniatures of FIEF Lords” [KS Exclusive] in a painted or unpainted set - you decide - together with a custom Box with foam core. The miniatures are chess-like busts, that feel great and chunky to the touch. These are used to substitute the cardboard standees of the Lords included in the base game. 

The “FIEF France Game Board” (*already included in any pledge containing the “FIEF France” Edition Board Game) is the new Game Board for FIEF France. It depicts the France region and includes the new Harbors and sea movement rules.  

The “Giant France Mat” [KS Exclusive] is a neoprene ultrasmooth map sized: 1000mm x 800mm x 1,5mm. It has a black background which gives it a “deluxe” touch. The Giant France Mat is not just bigger: It has more free space on top, so that you’ll be able to stack there any FIEF items you like. It’s size also allows you and your game night’s guests to admire even better the beautiful artwork. It will surely look impressive on your table. You will be able to download the harbor rules PDF file on our website.  

 Below is a comparison of the Regular France Map, and the Giant France Mat.  

The “FIEF Official Metal Coins” set [KS Exclusive] includes 56 beautiful metal coins engraved with FIEF Official design. These are a new coins’ design and different from the metal coins you find in the previous editions of the game.

The set contains coins 56 Crowns of the following denominations:

  • 16 x 5 golden-colored  Crowns,
  • 19 x 2 silver-colored Crowns,
  • 21 x 1 bronze-colored Crowns. 

The “FIEF Building Miniatures Box” includes the beautiful 45 miniatures of 3D Buildings that will bring your FIEF France to the next level, making its table presence astounding. This is the same set available before the release of the new edition of the game. The set includes:

  • 12 Strongholds, 8 City Walls and 15 Mills to replace the tokens from the base game,
  • 5 Teutonic Strongholds and 5 Templar Commanderies to replace the tokens from the thematic expansions.

Concept

The idea to create the FIEF Lords' miniatures has been a dream shared by a lot of FIEF's fans for a few years. To become a reality, the idea required an alignment of the planets to happen… and Here We Are!

FIEF has been out of stock for months (the French version at least), the new France Game Board is finalized and should be available in French shops by this summer, and the new edition of FIEF: FIEF France, which integrates this new game board, is scheduled for the end of the year.

However, something fundamental was missing for the project to take shape: an interested partner who wanted to get involved in the design and manufacture of the miniatures. MIMIKIDZcontacted me last summer and the first steps of our collaboration quickly demonstrated the feasibility of the project. In order to offer a reasonable price, it was necessary to provide these miniatures only by direct support from the backers, hence the exclusivity of this Kickstarter. The purpose of this campaign is to produce the 18 miniatures of the FIEF Lords as well as a Box with a custom foam storage so that the miniatures are perfectly protected. You will also be part of the project to finance the new edition of FIEF France*.

If the campaign is successfull, you will be able to get add-ons in the Pledge Manager, such as the Oversized Mat of FIEF France*, the Buildings (mills and castles), the Metal Coins or the FIEF France* expansion board.

* The Fortune of Sea Calamity card, exclusive to this campaign, will be offered to all those who will subscribe to FIEF France or will add the FIEF France expansion board or the oversized FIEF France mat in the Pledge Manager.

Please note that the Thematic Expansion Box is not offered in this campaign.

Risks and challenges

ASYNCRON games has been publishing board games since 2008.
Our products are known for their great quality (components and gameplay).

We do not expect delays in production, but unforeseen issues may arise during manufacturing and shipping. We estimate that in the worst case scenario, the production might suffer delays of at most 15-30 days (hazards about miniatures production), and shipping & customs may add some extra 15-30 days. We are experienced with large production runs. Our planning of production has been set up in order to take in account all the stretch goals which are very limited for this campaign.

By pledging on this project you agree that our responsibility to you is to ship your order as entered into the pledge management system. You are responsible for import or other duties that may be payable to relevant tax authorities. You also accept that you are fully liable for incorrect shipping details and will risk your pledge being undeliverable or lost in transit. We are unable to ship to PO Boxes. We allow a maximum of 1 delivery location per backer, regardless of number of pledges / copies ordered.

If you do not accept the proposed terms, then please do not pledge on this project.
