Spearpoint 1943 Eastern Front was successfully funded via Kickstarter (Thank you very much!) and production is now complete. We are now in the process of fulfillment. The Spearpoint 1943 Eastern Front Heavy Weapons Expansion (HWE), originally a stretch goal, was only offered in the final hours of the campaign. Production of all aspects of the HWE is complete, however, the additional cost was approximately $10,000 more than anticipated and was covered with debt funding to make it happen.
This kickstarter is intended to help us bridge the gap between the funding we raised and what we actually had to pay to print these games. Support it, and you'll get a great deal on both of these new releases.
Both will ship in July/August 2015.
Spearpoint 1943 Eastern Front (MSRP: $45) is an easy to play tactical wargame set in the Eastern Front of WWII between the Soviet Union and Germany. It is the newest standalone game in the Spearpoint 1943 Expandable Card Game (ECG) series.
The HWE (MSRP: $20) adds 50 additional Units (25 Soviet, 25 German) to the game for more deck-building options. One copy of Spearpoint 1943 Eastern Front is required to use the expansion.
Designed by Byron Collins (5th published game design)
Marco Arnaudo on Spearpoint 1943: "[Spearpoint] is always fast to set up, fast to play, and a lot of fun. I highly recommend it."
Players: 2 Ages: 13+ Average Playing Time: 30 mins.
Highly Re-playable: The HWE expands pre-game deck construction options for players of Eastern Front. No two games are the same!
Fun and Fast: Easy rules with continual involvement by both players. Game sets up and plays in about 30 minutes, making it the ultimate wargame "filler".

Embedded here is an animated sample turn that walks through each action in a typical turn. This video is intended to outline the flow of a turn and highlight typical gameplay including how combat works. Note that the video uses the Eastern Front game for the walk-through.
Production of games is quite expensive, and we came up short estimating the costs of production for Eastern Front and the HWE. We are seeking your help to bridge the funding gap between what funds we have already raised and what funds we actually had to pay for production. In return for supporting us, you'll get a great deal on these games and be among the first to play them.
Please note the following regarding all rewards:
Each reward includes shipping to USA backers (international shipping fee is noted on each level and is modestly priced- we are covering a portion of the international shipping for you).

Below are photos of several reward options available, for visual reference of what is included.
Major (Limited to 30)
To supplement the components, a useful set of 54 offset-printed die-cut Tracking Counters helps players keep up with who is firing where and when that attack is complete, how many turns an aircraft can remain in flight, who won initiative, and temporary damage sustained by a unit in the current turn. These are included in the Captain and Major Rewards.
The Major reward is limited to 30 and includes all games in the Spearpoint 1943 line so far at a special price that includes USA shipping! Please see www.collinsepicwargames.com for additional info on the earlier released games. All games are compatible with each other.

Risks and challenges
1. Risk is near zero that we cannot deliver this game. The only thing that would bar delivery within a couple of weeks of project close would be some major health issue or absence / family emergency that prevents shipment during that timeframe. We are beginning the fulfillment process for Spearpoint 1943 Eastern Front- this will continue until all orders from this Kickstarter are shipped.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
