Just before starting a game, players must build their armies, based on an agreed upon amount of points. Using these points, players forge the core of their army with powerful  Combat Units, such as the Stark Sworn Swords or Lannister Guards into their army. Each of these units has its own strengths and weaknesses.

Non-Combat Units

However, wars are not fought solely on the battlefield. Players may also choose to spend points on various Non-Combat Units (NCU), such as Tyrion Lannister and Catelyn Stark. These individuals work behind the scenes, influencing the course of events through their skills at politics, negotiation, or battlefield strategy.

After constructing armies, players take to the field in one of five unique Game Modes, each giving different strategic objectives. Victory in these Game Modes may consist of controlling objectives across the battlefield, outlasting your opponent in prolonged siege-warfare, completing hidden objectives, and much more!

During the game, players take alternating turns activating the various units they have brought to the battleground. Will you command your Umber Berserkers to lead a devastating charge against your opponent’s Lannister Halberdiers?

Or perhaps have Catelyn Stark take an action onto the Tactics Board, utilizing her Non-Combat skills to rally Bannermen to your cause, restoring lost units? These are the choices you’ll have to make, deciding whether a battlefield assault or a political move is the next step toward victory.

Tactics

You'll have access to more than the units' abilities alone. Each House comes with its own Tactics Deck: cards containing strategies and abilities to aid you in your fight. Each Houses’ deck is unique, reflecting that faction's preferred methods. With House Lannister, subterfuge and manipulation are every bit as powerful as raw strength. Their deck focuses on disrupting enemy units and strategies, sowing chaos across their ranks. Meanwhile, the brave and loyal Bannermen of House Stark are more focused on the field itself. Flanking maneuvers and swift re-positioning are backed by a hearty amount of raw Northern Ferocity!

Your Tactics Deck will be further expanded by your choice of Army Commander: a powerful Hero you have selected to lead your forces into battle! They will add cards of their own to your Tactics Deck, augmenting your strategic arsenal. Do you prefer the cunning counter-play of Jaime Lannister: The Kingslayer? Or if a more direct approach is to your liking, then Gregor Clegane: The Mountain will give you the offensive punch you desire. Your choice of Commander is a customization option that will radically change how your army plays.

Hand of the King Pledge

For $150, the Hand of the King Level pledge gets you: A Song of Ice & Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game (SRP $150) + the Kickstarter Exclusive Non-Combat Character The High Seneschal + All Applicable Stretch Goals.

Note that anything marked with this:

is an Exclusive item for Kickstarter backers, with remaining stock available at conventions and special promotions only.

The Maesters are an ancient order of scholars, healers, and scientists who are trained in the Citadel, located in Oldtown. Chief among them and charged with the governance of the Citadel is the Seneschal. The High Seneschal is a Kickstarter Exclusive Non-Combat Unit that all backers will receive! As a NCU, The High Seneschal doesn't take directly to the battlefield, but rather, influences the behind-the-scenes stages of war through his NCU card, which features a very unique effect. The High Seneschal is a Mercenary Character, meaning that he can be played with any Faction in the game!

Please Take Note!

Based on past experience, we will be charging shipping after the Kickstarter concludes based on the actual costs incurred to ship. We will collect this via our pledge manager after the campaign ends. This is so we can be fair to all our backers as shipping is rarely one size fits all, and also give you more stretch goodies and possibly a choice of carrier options.

We will ship your rewards at our cost to our international hubs. Depending on where in the world you are, we will either ship to you from our hub in the UK (EU backers), China (Asia Pacific backers), Canada (Canadian backers), Australia (Australia and New Zealand backers) or Atlanta (USA and the rest of the world). Following is a list of rough estimates for shipping a standard game package (4kg volumetric weight). Keep in mind these are just estimates, and costs may rise based on weight increases from unlocked stretch goals and any optional buys you choose.

  • USA: $10-$20 to most states. $50 to Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico.
  • CANADA: $15-$30 to most cities.
  • LATIN AMERICA: $60-$70 to most countries.
  • ASIA: $10 to China and Hong Kong. $30 to most other countries (we can't predict an estimate cost to Malaysia).
  • OCEANIA: $20-$45 to Australia. $40 to New Zealand.
  • AFRICA: $80 to most countries.
  • EUROPE: $20-$30 to most countries.
  • $35 to Norway, Finland, Estonia, and Latvia.
  • $40 to Bosnia/Herzegowina, Croatia, and Iceland.
  • $60-$70 to Israel, Liechtenstein, and Serbia.

Unfortunately, different import laws and customs have made it impossible for CMON to ship games to certain specific countries.

*WE DO NOT SHIP TO:* Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Afghanistan.

Be aware that all pledges that are confirmed after the pledge manager deadline will be shipped from the US hub at a later date. For non-US backers that will likely incur increased shipping costs. We also cannot ship to PO Boxes domestically or internationally. Due to the size of each package there is too great a risk of the package being bounced back to us.

Please note that while we do our best to get you your rewards in a timely manner, you may not necessarily receive your rewards before the product makes it into distribution in your own country or before it's made available in conventions and special promotion opportunities. We hope that the special price and exclusive items you will get during the Kickstarter will make up for any such possible lag. However, if this is something that is not acceptable to you, please do not back this project, and instead wait for the retail release. Thank you for your understanding.

The table below gives you a general idea of the full schedule of what to expect once the campaign ends. Keep in mind these are just estimates, and the timeline may vary due to circumstances.

Risks and challenges

This is our 28th Kickstarter, and there are some vagaries in terms of timing when it comes to anything produced in China, such as:
Production delays
Shipping delays
Customs delays

The estimated delivery date is April 2018, but keep in mind this is only an estimate. Also, due to the logistics of international shipping, backers in different regions of the world may receive their rewards sooner than others.

We've done our best to minimize this as much as possible, and we are always happy to refund pledges if for some totally unforeseen reason the game can't be delivered at all. Since the game is 90% complete, we don't believe this is in the least bit likely. We've successfully delivered Zombicide, Sedition Wars, Guilds of Cadwallon, Zombicide Season 2, Relic Knights, Rivet Wars, Kaosball, Dogs of War, Arcadia Quest, Wrath of Kings, XenoShyft, our Base System, Zombicide Season 3, The World of Smog: On Her Majesty's Service, Rum & Bones, Blood Rage, B-Sieged, Zombicide: Black Plague, The Others, XenoShyft: Dreadmire and Masmorra: Dungeons of Arcadia. Arcadia Quest: Inferno and Rum & Bones: Second Tide.

We have four ongoing projects currently: Massive Darkness, which we are in the process of delivering; The World of Smog: Rise of Moloch, Rising Sun and Zombicide: Green Horde which are in production.

Please refer to our individual project pages if you'd like to check the progress there. Each project is entirely independent from each other, has completely different development teams, and has no effect on the production flow or development of A Song of Ice & Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Games.

REFUND POLICY

We can refund you within 14 days of the campaign’s end, fees included. After that, we have a policy of no questions asked, though that’s minus Kickstarter and payment processing fees (which we can’t get back from them after 14 days). However, if we’ve begun packaging your pledge for shipment (usually 4 to 6 weeks before the actual shipping date), no refunds are possible. If a component cannot be delivered AT ALL, we refund that completely, including fees.

All refunds after the 14 days close of the campaign may be processed via Paypal or reversed via Stripe to your credit card at our discretion. Refunds within 14 days are reversed via Stripe to your credit card.

This project is being funded in USD and any refunds processed will be in USD for the exact amount received in USD, excluding any applicable fees depending on the time of the refund being processed.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

By pledging to this project, you acknowledge that the final look, materials and content of the rewards (and the project) are subject to change and may differ substantially from what is presented while the Kickstarter project was active.

If you do not log in and confirm your pledge within 8 weeks of our notification via email to confirm your pledge, you agree that we have fulfilled our obligations to you in full for payment or donations received. However, we may, at our discretion, refund or ship your pledge if you contact us and confirm your pledge after the 8 week window has elapsed. Unconfirmed pledges make it difficult for us to plan production and logistics, and in the past have led to project delays. For this project we do not intend to allow this to happen, which may mean if you confirm your pledge too late, exclusive items may not be produced in sufficient quantity for your pledge.

If you confirm your pledge within 8 weeks of our notification via email, you agree that our responsibility to you is to ship your order as entered into our pledge manager system, that title and risk passes to you upon delivery to a common carrier for such shipment, and you are responsible for import duties or any other duties that may be payable to the relevant tax authorities, providing correct address information and ensuring this address is deliverable by normal methods. We regret we are unable to ship to PO Boxes.

If you do not accept these terms, please do not pledge on this project but instead wait for the general release.
