(Scroll down the page to see the already unlocked SGs).

UNLOCKED! Core Box and The Leeghwater Expansion Box SG: all the structure pieces for each faction. Different shapes based on five different architectural styles to reflect the artistic movement of each Country! (Custom designed neutral dams included)

From left to right: Le Corbusier (France), Walter Gropius (Germany), Pierluigi Nervi (Italy), Richard Buckminster Fuller (USA) and Gerrit Rietveld (Netherlands).

Click the SG image for an interactive 3D preview of the pieces!

UNLOCKED Core Box SG: a bigger, more practical Energy Track, now tri-folded and big enough to cover both the mapboard and the management board!

UNLOCKED Full Game SG: Linen finishing on the faction boards and on the diecut components, like tokens, bonuses tiles and so on!

Core Box and The Leeghwater Expansion Box SG: all the Engineer meeples are upgraded to a specific design for each faction!

UNLOCKED! Core Box SG: a smart tile-driven mechanic to play Barrage on your own! With the Tesla Solo Mode you'll compete against the mastermind behind this new energetic revolution, Mr. Nikola Tesla himself! The module is compatible also with The Leeghwater Project and it can even be used to add an automatic opponent in a two or three human player game!

Do you want to know how it works? Tommaso is going to show it!

UNLOCKED! Core Box and The Leeghwater Expansion Box SG: custom designed and laser-engraved player markers, to be used on the turn order track, energy track and VP track!

UNLOCKED! Core Box SG: a set of plastic, cristal clear blue drops of water, designed and molded to enhance the usability of water flowing on the map.

UNLOCKED Core Box SG: a new executive officer, ready to exploit all of your opponents' vulnerabilities: miss Mahiri Sekibo, the Covert Operative, is here, and she will allow you to copy, turn by turn, the power of one of your opponents!

KS Exclusive Box SG: the complete set of metal coins in 1, 3 and 5 HyCU values, along with an embroidered coin pouch!

Risks and challenges

All the components may be subject to changes up to the date of production!

Cranio Creations is a ten years long live boardgames publisher based in Milan, Italy, with ever 60 games in its catalog including Lorenzo the Magnificent, Unusual Suspects and Newton, with over 10 partnership all over the world.
In short, we have experience in the world of boardgames but Barrage is our first try with a Kickstarter campaign.

There are risks that we must take into account; the entire production aspect will in fact be entrusted to external companies located outside the EU.
We must take into account of possible production delays, shipping delays and consequent delivery delays (and we can not exclude strikes, natural calamity or alien invasions).
On all of this, Cranio Creations will put all the experience to avoid all these eventualities.
Cranio Creations, thanks to international agreements, is Uk and Usa friendly shipments and implements a service of replacement parts in case they were failed or missing.
For our part, we take the responsibility to follow the production until the end and to do all the appropriate playtest, to be able to deliver a product made in the state of the art.

We want Barrage to meet us in the first place and for this we have prepared ourselves and we are working to the best of our ability.
We want to give you an unique experience.
Barrage, we think, is one of the best heavy Eurogame of the last 3 years.
Another content that we gonna give you is the exclusive 6 months of gameplay.
We are not going to sell copies to retailers in campaign nor immediately after the campaign ended.
Retailers will wait 6 months after that we sent last copy to our last backer.
We want to assure you backers an exclusive content for 6 months.
