B-Sieged: Sons of the Abyss is a fully cooperative castle defense board game that combines exciting combat action with classic resource management. In this thrilling defensive battle, 1 to 6 players control the mighty Heroes of Modhelm, who must fight back the encroaching Abyssal hordes, and endure until salvation arrives!

Find out more about the Zombicide: Black Plague ID cards here!

B-Sieged comes with 70 highly detailed, pre-assembled miniatures including 6 Heroes and the unstoppable hordes of the Abyss. Each player takes control of a number of Heroes while the encroaching Abyssal forces are controlled by the game itself.

In B-Sieged, players must cooperate to defend the Citadel of Modhelm. Dark forces have surrounded the city and the entire realm will drown in flames if the Abyssal Hordes aren’t stopped! The Council has tasked the Messenger with escaping the siege to retrieve an ancient magic artifact that will break the enemy forces. The Citadel must endure the onslaught until the Messenger returns, and it’s the Heroes’ task to keep the Messenger safe and defend the Citadel.

During their turn, Heroes may take 3 actions. They can spend these actions to visit the various buildings inside the Citadel to get resources (such as Food, Gold, Special Abilities, and Cards), repair damaged buildings, trade cards, fight Enemies from the walls, or try to use the powerful catapult at the center of the Citadel. The Heroes must coordinate their actions well to share resources, gather vital supplies, and survive the siege.

After the Heroes have acted, it’s the Monsters' turn. Each monster figure on the board will activate and perform their actions according to its rank. Mölens, the Heavy Units, will attack directly from Zone 3 and damage all Heroes and buildings in the Quarter they face. Gargohs, the Support Units, will advance towards Zone 2 and, once there, they’ll hit all Heroes in the Quarter they face. The Assault Units, the Krohns, will advance towards Zone 1, and once there, they’ll attack the Heroes on the wall and try to break into the Citadel.

Experience the thrilling siege of Modhelm in this fantastic, action-packed board game from Cool Mini or Not and Second Gate Games!

Shipping information - 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 you from our hub in Germany (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 estimate for shipping a standard game package (4kg volumetric weight). Keep in mind these are just estimates, and costs may increase or decrease based on the quantity of stretch goals we might unlock and your carrier choices.

  • USA: $10-$15 to most states. $30 to Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico.
  • CANADA: $10-$20 to most cities.
  • LATIN AMERICA: $50-$60 to most countries.
  • ASIA: $10 to China and Hong Kong. $30 to most other countries.
  • OCEANIA: $13-$25 to Australia. $30 to New Zealand.
  • AFRICA: $70 to most countries.
  • EUROPE: $10 to Germany. $15-$30 to most other countries.
  • * $35 to Norway, Finland, Estland, Lettland, and Latvia.
  • * $40 to Bosnia/Herzegowina, Croatia, and Serbia.
  • * $55 to Bulgaria, Lithuania, and Romania.
  • * $60 to Greece, Iceland, Russia, and Israel.
  • * $70 to Turkey and Ukraine.

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.

Risks and challenges

This is our 17th 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 November 2015, 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 and XenoShyft. We are in the final stages of delivery for Zombicide Season 3.

We have four ongoing projects currently: our Base System and The World of Smog: On Her Majesty's Service which are in the final stages of production, Rum & Bones, and Blood Rage.

Please refer to our individual project pages if you'd like to check the progress there. Each project is entirely independent of each other and have completely different development teams and have no effect on the production flow or development of B-Sieged.

REFUND POLICY

We can refund you within 60 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 60 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 60 days close of the campaign are processed via Paypal only. Within 60 days refunds are reversed via Stripe to your credit card.
