 The year is 2033. Wars plagued the Earth. Planetary devastation lead to chemical reactions. People started transforming into undead creatures. The Earth began to divide and shatter. Countries and last stands fell, one by one. There is now rumor of a refuge, a final chance for humanity. But they only have room and supplies for one more survivor. This is a race to get to The Refuge. 

The Refuge: A Race For Survival is an exciting zombie-themed table top board game for two to six players that is easy to learn, family friendly, and is great for parties and game night! Players use strategy, planning, and educated guesses to outwit their opponents and escape zombies in hopes of being the sole survivor that gets into the refuge and wins the game. 

The Refuge: A Race For Survival includes:  

  • One game board
  • 66 miniatures 
  • 49 game cards

Risks and challenges

Estimate date of delivery is December, 2016 - so you will get it by the holiday season! It's even possible that you will get it in November. However, this is only an estimate as there a couple unlikely extenuating circumstances that might delay the shipping:
1. Gargantuan amount of games claimed may delay printing of some of the games.
2. Unforeseen shipping issues.

Also, due to shipping logistics, backers from different parts of the world may receive their packages at different dates than other.
