Quick tactical boardgame set in the City of Thieves! From the legendary Confrontation universe.

Guilds of Cadwallon is a fast tactical board game for 2 to 4 players.  Take control of the famous City of Thieves set in the Confrontation universe!  Brought to you by the publishers of the Kickstarter projects Zombicide and Sedition Wars!

Each game lasts about a half hour, and is very easy to learn but hard to master. The object of the game is to accumulate as many Guild Points as possible by controlling districts of the city using your agents, on a randomized 3 x 3 square representation of the city over several rounds.

Game Contents

  • 24 Agent Pawns
  • 16 Guild Cards
  • 4 Personality Cards
  • 5 Militia Cards
  • 13 Action Cards
  • 12 optional Condition Cards

The game is about ready to go to print, and it's a small, fun and fast game with some great Confrontation miniatures as Agent Pawns and gorgeous illustrations on each card.

We're running a short Kickstarter to gauge the amount of interest for a small board game set in the Confrontation universe.  If we manage to hit our funding goal we'll upgrade all games with plastic capture tokens that you can see being used in the gameplay video.

Here's a quick sample of the great art and Pawns included in the game.

Of course, it wouldn't be a Kickstarter without some stretch goals.

For every goal we hit, for Kickstarter backers only, we'll be adding additional Guild cards and Agent Pawns to your copy of the game for free!

Each Kickstarter set gets

  • 6 additional Purple Agent Pawns
  • The Guild of Necromancers Guild cards

Each Kickstarter set gets


  • 6 additional Green Agent Pawns
  • The Guild of Ferrymen Guild cards

Each Kickstarter set gets


  • 6 additional Yellow Agent Pawns
  • The Guild of Fortune Tellers Guild cards

Each Kickstarter set gets

  • 6 additional White Agent Pawns
  • The Guild of Thieves Guild cards

Since we've unlocked all the extra Guilds, how about some extra cards that should come in handy for larger games? 

  • 5 additional Militia cards
  • 4 additional Personality cards

If we hit this stretch, we'll send each Kickstarter set an additional duplicate set of Action Cards!

Contract cards are an asymmetrical optional hidden objective which we'll add as optional rules if we hit this stretch. The base game will receive 5 Contract cards, while the Kickstarter sets will receive a total of 10 Contract cards to allow for more players.

Want somewhere to put all your additional components from the Kickstarter? If we hit this stretch goal,  we'll ship you an extra large box that will fit everything (including the optional board)!  You'll still need to purchase the gameboard if you want it.

Kickstarter only, these optional cards represent Guild Backers that will add to your score, but not provide support when capturing, throwing an interesting into the game.

Also included are Rules Cards for handling more than 4 players, specific to this Kickstarter!

* Please note, colors and final design subject to change.

Enter the City of Thieves today!  We expect to begin shipping in March 2013. $25 gets you the base game and any stretches we unlock! If you are outside the continental USA, shipping will be an additional $10.  EU backers, your games will ship from the UK.

If you'd like a traditional board, here's something that will fit 3x3, 4x4 or 5x5 grid games, with an overhead view of the city of Cadwallon printed on it!  Ideal for use with all the unlocked additional cards and Agent Pawns!

This is a hard laminated cardboard material you'd find in most boardgames. 

Now includes the larger box unlocked at $75k as a free extra!

Also, as requested by some of you, we are making Token Packs available for purchase separately for $5 for each set of 24 Agent Pawns.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

From past experience, there are some vagaries in terms of timing when it comes to anything produced in China, such as:

Production delays
Shipping delays
Customs delays

We've done our best to minimize this as far 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 95% complete, we don't believe this is in the least bit likely - we've successfully delivered Zombicide and will be shipping Sedition Wars shortly, our first two Kickstarter projects.

FAQ

  • Each extra game is $25. Click on the "manage your pledge" button, multiply how many extra games you'd like by $25 and add that amount to your existing pledge. Don't forget to add $10 shipping per game and $5 shipping per gameboard if your delivery address is outside the continental USA. We'll confirm your details after the Kickstarter concludes.

  • Sure you can! By popular demand we have two sets, each for $5. Choose which you prefer, Set A or Set B, or both, or any combination. Multiply how many sets you want by $5 and add the amount to your existing pledge. Don't worry, we'll ask which sets you want in the survey we'll send out after the campaign is over.
