About

18 Holes is a strategy golfing board game where hitting off-course, on-purpose may be the fastest way to the green. 

You play a golfer with five clubs in their bag and eighteen holes to navigate. Play with two to four players, solo or in teams. Compete first for your kit and then on-course with careful shot selection and clever navigation of the hazards. First to the 18th green wins.

Every game of 18 Holes begins with a collaborative course designing phase. Build a new course together or go online to the 18 Holes Clubhouse and play a course shared by another 18 Holes designer. Either way, you can play a new course every time you play.

You can read more about course design here. And you can read more on how to play here.

No golf course is complete without a few hazards to liven things up. There are five hazards in 18 Holes, each with their own influence on your game. Some can be avoided by carrying specific clubs. Some can be avoided by playing well. Some, when the time is right, can help you win.

We asked the question: what would happen if you could play the holes in any order? From that question, Chaos Golf was born. A frenetic game mode where players line up on the first tee-box and hit in any direction. Stacked on each green are two points tokens. The first player to reach a green scores 5-points, the second 2-points and everyone else gets zero.

Don’t worry, you’ve got the course to yourselves so you won’t need to yell FORE!

  • all of the shot cards (back and front face)
  • all of the clubs (back and front face)
  • modified chaos golf tokens (they're square rather than circular to make them easy to cut)
  • Rulebook (with slightly modified rules)

You'll be able to play a round or four and get a feel for the game. Then you can come back and pick the reward tier for you.

18 Holes is published by Seabrook Studios, an independent table top and digital games company with a focus on reimagining existing games, themes and sports to make them accessible to a different audience.

Gosh. Shipping is hard to work out when you don't know where your customers are and have uncertainty around Brexit and the US-China trade tariffs.

Because of this we are going to charge 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. Shipping costs vary widely based on where you will receive your reward. Unfortunately, a one size fits all price isn't manageable.

If we get near enough backers from within the EU to ship a pallet then we will and we will offer EU-friendly shipping. The same applies for Canada, China or any region of the world. If we don't get enough backers for a region to unlock region-friendly pricing then we'll tell you how much it will cost to ship and if it is significantly greater than our estimate then we'll offer you a refund. We're based in Australia, we know how expensive shipping can get.

We expect most of our backers will be from the US. We are covering the current tariffs (pre-June 2019). So we'll have US-friendly shipping. We're located in Australia and we will be fulfilling locally from here.

We'll use tracking codes whenever we can.


In summary:

1. If we get enough backers in a region then we'll unlock region-friendly pricing. 

2. If we don't get enough backers and our shipping costs are going to be significantly greater than the estimate, we'll offer a refund to the affected backers.


Shipping Estimates

  • US: ~$10 USD
  • Canada: ~$20 CND / ~$15 USD
  • UK:  ~£12 / ~$15 USD
  • EU:  €13-18 /~15-20 USD
  • Australia & New Zealand: $15 AUD
  • Rest of the World / No region-friendly pricing: ~$25 USD / ~$35 AUD

Risks and challenges

As with every Kickstarter project, there may be unforeseen issues we could not plan for in advance.

PRODUCTION RISKS — Even though we do our best to ensure a quality product and a timely production, there is always the risk of delays. Supplier shortage, holiday traffic and weather conditions are just a few of the reasons a production could be delayed.

MISSING/DAMAGED ITEMS — When dealing with a large number of orders, there is always a chance that errors will occur. If after you receive your order, you find that there are items missing, please contact us at hello [at] seabrook-studios.com and we will send you the missing items as soon as possible. We'll do our best to keep additional stock at each distribution centre to handle this.

If your package arrives damaged, please take a few photos of all damaged items and email them to us at hello [at] seabrook-studios.com. We will send you replacements for the damaged items as soon as possible.

DELIVERY DATE — Our current estimation for delivery is January 2020. If any delays occur then we'll be using email as the primary means to communicate these delays with you.

DELIVERY ADDRESS — We will send out a notice before we ship to pick up any backer address changes. Backers changing shipping locations may incur additional shipping fees.

UNDELIVERED SHIPMENTS — Undelivered shipments and/or missing or damaged parts have to be reported in 90 days after we send you a shipping notice through email. After that date we may treat unreported shipments as successfully finished and any potential resends and/or replacements may be at our discretion only.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT — By supporting this project, you acknowledge that the game presented is at a development stage and that the final production shape of the game may still change. Not much though, as we really enjoying playing as it is.

Thank you very much,
Seabrook Studios.
