Add-Ons!

Following this Kickstarter, we're going to launch a Backerkit Pledge Manager for people who would like to expand their Warfighter collection. In addition to all the products offered here, we're also offering our custom Deep Dish Counter Trays (for $3 each) and Metal Soldier Figures (set of 13 unpainted figures for $15).

Please add to your pledge now to receive these extra products.

Night Mini-Mission! 

If we can reach $39k we'll be able to finish the design for Night Missions and include a mini-Mission of night cards in the Footlocker!

Card samples...

Design details...

Locations - Locations have an additional Night penalty added to their Entrance cost. This cost can only be paid with Night Gear.

Hostiles - Hostile cards are drawn and remain face down until you Reveal them with your Night Equipment. The back of the cards has data for the Hostile that is distorted due to the visibility problems consistent with night combat. For example, the card might have more Reticles than it really has, or a higher Cover, or deadlier Attacks.

Each Hostile card back is unique and randomized, so there is no easy way to tell what a Hostile truly is until you Reveal it.

As soon as you succeed in Revealing the card, you flip it to its normal side and reveal its real stats. Once Revealed, Hostiles have reduced capabilities from their day time cards due to their lack of night fighting skill and equipment.

This gives you the tactical decision making of how to best spend your resources. Do you spend time identifying targets as they shoot at you? Or, do you cut loose with firepower against unidentified targets, knowing you're making unneeded attacks, but at least you're doing something right now to reduce the in-coming fire.

Equipment - In addition to all the normal Equipment you take select for a Mission, you now have access to Night Vision Goggles, Night Sights for Weapons, and Tactical Weapon Lights!

Euro-Friendly-ish... 

I've been asked by several people to mention the Euro-Friendly nature of our Kickstarter campaigns. I'm happy to do so, but I need to make clear the mailing process we use.

We mail all international games using FedEx's FIM's mail service. We deliver the games to FedEx, and FedEx delivers them to their hub in Sweden. The games are then delivered to each country's postal system from Sweden.

Because of this system, we have not had any reports of people being charged VAT or other fees, but we cannot promise this.

Sorry about all the disclaimers, I just want to make completely sure that people know that while this system has had great success in the past, we cannot guarantee it for all packages in the future.

A brief history of Warfighter...

We launched a Kickstarter campaign in early 2014 to fund our Warfighter card game. Due to the massive response, we were able to add 3 expansions, and significantly upgrade its components. We printed the game (in our largest print run ever) and received the games from the printer in October. Within a month of release, the game had sold so well, we had to order a reprint!

By far, the biggest reason for Warfighter's success has been the enthusiastic support of its online fans, and we are thankful for each and everyone of them. They have posted reviews, AARs, photos, and helped new players get into the game. They can easily be found on Facebook, Boardgamegeek, and Consimworld. Their great work has quickly grown Warfighter into a friendly online community that we appreciate and support.

They only had one complaint... They wanted more. :)

Well, here it is. Enjoy!

Warfighter - Wave #2

This Kickstarter brings together 5 different products:

  • Expansion #5 - Speedball
  • Expansion #6 - United Kingdom
  • Expansion #7 - Russian Federation
  • Expansion #8 - Eastern European Adversaries
  • Expansion #9 - The Footlocker

Expansion #5 - Speedball

Speedball gives you additional copies of the most popular Weapons and Equipment found in the 1st Wave games. It also gives you dozens of new Weapon and Equipment cards, as well as more Missions and Objectives!

Components: 60 cards and 4 Mod1 Bullet Dice

Expansion #6 - United Kingdom

United Kingdom gives you Player Soldiers, Non-Player Soldiers, and Squad Soldiers from the United Kingdom. Also included are their Weapon and Equipment cards. This provides you with everything you need to run missions. All you need to do is use these Soldier, Weapon, and Equipment cards instead of the US cards at the start of a Mission, and you are good to go! Also includes more Mission and Objective cards!

Components: 60 cards and 4 Mod1 Bullet Dice

Military Offer: If you served recently, or are serving in the United Kingdom's Army or Royal Marines, we'd be honored to include your photo on a Soldier card. Please email a photo of yourself in military gear, as well as your name, the name of the photographer (if possible), and your mailing address to: dan (AT) dvg (DOT) com.

Expansion #7 - Russian Federation

Russian Federation gives you Player Soldiers, Non-Player Soldiers, and Squad Soldiers from the Russian Federation. Also included are their Weapon and Equipment cards. This provides you with everything you need to run missions. All you need to do is use these Soldier, Weapon, and Equipment cards instead of the US cards at the start of a Mission, and you are good to go! Also includes more Mission and Objective cards!

Components: 60 cards and 4 Mod1 Bullet Dice

Military Offer: If you served recently, or are serving in the Russian Federation's Army, we'd be honored to include your photo on a Soldier card. Please email a photo of yourself in military gear, as well as your name, the name of the photographer (if possible), and your mailing address to: dan (AT) dvg (DOT) com.

Expansion #8 - Eastern European Adversaries

Eastern European Adversaries adds the Eastern European Region to the game. This Expansion gives you Hostile cards, Event cards, and Location cards for the Eastern European Region. This is everything you need to take the war to a whole new enemy with your US, UK, and Russian teams! Also includes more Mission and Objective cards!

Components: 60 cards and 4 Mod1 Bullet Dice

Expansion #9 - The Footlocker

The Footlocker gives you a huge 14" x 9" crate of a box that is a staggering 6" deep, and filled with Warfighter Gear!

Even with all the cards, there is still plenty of room for future updates!

We've also built enough space into the box to hold the Mounted Display, as well as a DVG Deep Dish Counter Tray, Rule Book, Miniatures, and more!

Components: The Footlocker, 1 sheet of Ammo and Player Aid counters, Card Dividers, and a massive 33" x 17" MOUNTED version of the Tactical Display Sheet from the core Warfighter game!

Printer's Mock-Up...

$25,000 Stretch Goal

With this Stretch Goal, we'll be able to add Plastic Card Dividers with custom printed graphics!

We've made a few additions and clarifications in the original rule book. We've also added several new Traits: "Aircraft", "Team Pre-Req" and "Purchase XP" to some of the new cards.

The updated rule book will be available for free PDF download on our website.

With this Stretch Goal, we'll be able to include an updated printed rule book in each Footlocker.

We've also expanded Warfighter's Weapon list to included dedicated Machine Guns like the M60E3 and others. This led to the introduction of the "Machine Gun" weapon type, which necessitated the revision of several cards to include "Machine Gun" on their card text, such as the ACOG Sight...

When we do the 2nd printing of the 1st Wave games, we're updating the cards to include "Machine Gun".

To make the 1st Wave games completely up to date, we're adding a deck of cards to the Footlocker, at no extra charge. The deck will include the updated ACOG, Red Dot, "M249 SAW Rifle" (which is now the "M249 SAW Machine Gun", and more.

We've also received many requests for Missions with more than 100 Resource Points to accommodate more Soldiers. To achieve this, we've updated all the Location and Objective cards with an extra Resource Point range...

We will include all the updated Locations and Objectives from the Core game and Expansions #1, #2, and #3, in the card deck included in the Footlocker. Again, free of charge.

$30,000 Stretch Goal (NEW!)

The Scenario Book was an idea first proposed by the fans on Board Game Geek.

 The book will be filled with stand-alone Missions as well as multi-Mission Operations. If we reach this Stretch Goal, we'll print the books and include them in the Footlockers.

Here is an advanced look at what we have planned...

Here's the best part... we are opening the book up to player submissions. If you'd like to design a Mission or Operation, we're accepting submissions and you'll receive credit with your creation.

Use the formats shown on the above pages to organize your information, and send it to me in a Word doc either through a private message or email: dan (AT) dvg (DOT) com

A couple pointers when designing...

- Start with a standard Mission and Objective card, then customize from there.
- If you give the Soldiers an advantage or disadvantage, give them the opposite to balance the difficulty.
- In the end, a Mission should not be any harder or easier than a standard Mission for that Region.
- Adding special rules is what makes a Scenario unique, but don't go overboard.
- Play test! After you write-up your design, get out the cards and play test it, make changes, and play test it again. Continue making adjustments until you have it just right.
- A great Scenario is a combination or custom rules and flavor. The Briefing text gives you the opportunity to support your rules with a story.
- Do not include Weapons or Equipment not already in print. If you really need to, email me, and I will do my best to get the card into the Wave #2 Games.

Legal Text: All submissions become the property of Dan Verssen Games (DVG). DVG reserves the right to edit and alter submissions as it sees fit for publication. Contributors will receive no monetary payment for their submissions. Contributors will receive name credit for their submissions appearing in the book.

Deep Dish Counter Trays

It turns out the Deep Dish Counter Trays were a popular item. Along with the Scenario Book, we'll also add a free Deep Dish Counter Tray into the Footlockers!

 $39,000 Stretch Goal!

If we can reach this goal, we'll be able to complete the Night Mission design and include a full mini-Mission of Night cards in the Footlocker!

Risks and challenges

Dan Verssen Games (DVG) has the knowledge and skills to ensure that everything goes as smoothly as possible. We have published dozens of games. If you have any questions or queries, the people at DVG will be here to assist you as quickly as we can. If you would like to see the quality of the games we publish, please visit our website:

With several Kickstarter campaigns behind us, we are able to professionally deal with setbacks while keeping you, the backer, informed with what's happening every step of the way - and not just while the campaign is running. When funding closes and production starts, we aim to provide the most up-to-date information possible regarding each stage of the game's journey to your tabletop.

We believe that honesty is as important as regular contact with our backers. You can expect the very best from us, no matter what. As part of our honesty pledge, please be aware that we do not offer refunds after a Kickstarter campaign closes. We need the funds to pay the printer and to purchase the add-ons and stretch goals people have earned during the campaign. If you pledge, and later change your mind, that's okay, but you need to cancel your pledge before the campaign ends.

By working with high quality production facilities that we've dealt with during previous campaigns, we are confident that we'll be able to deliver the game in a timely manner. Our exacting standards mean that you're guaranteed to get a great game.
