About this project
Catacombs Conquest™ combines a card game with a dexterity game which is quick to learn and fun to play.
Two or four players play cards and flick wooden discs representing heroes from either the Sword Team or Skull Team to eliminate their opponent’s Health Tokens.
The game features mobile “Obstacles Discs” that can be controlled by players to provide strategic cover or disrupt the plans of opponents.
Walls define the play area and prevent discs from falling off the table.
The game is packaged in a compact travel friendly box.
Once again, Catacombs Conquest is illustrated by Kwanchai Moriya.
In Catacombs Conquest, a player chooses a card from their hand that represents a character from their chosen team (Sword or Skull).
Then they flick their “Character Disc” or “Ranged Disc” (representing arrows, fireballs etc.) in the play area attempting to hit their opponent’s disc.
Quick to learn, set up, and play, the game is fast and fun for casual players and families.
Please note: Catacombs Conquest is a standalone game not an expansion. Although it uses Elzra's Dexterity Game System, it is not directly compatible with Catacombs Third Edition or Catacombs & Castles. This game is designed to be an entry level alternative to these two titles.
Catacombs Conquest comes with the following:
- 14 Wooden Discs
- 56 Cards
- 2 Turn Tracker Tokens
- 24 Health Tokens
- 2 Sticker Sheets
- 1 Rule Book
- Elzra's Wall System (includes 12 plastic stands)
Conquest + Playmat Bundle Pledge
The single sided Catacombs Conquest rubber play mat is 61cm (24") x 35.5 cm (14") and provides an optimal surface on which to play the game. This mat fits within the walls that come with the game and is illustrated by Kwanchai Moriya.
For $50 CAD, you will receive the English language version of Catacombs Conquest, the official Catacombs Conquest playmat, plus you will receive all "backer exclusive" stretch goals that are unlocked during the campaign.
Shipping and Other Costs
Please refer to the shipping section of this page to determine the approximate cost of shipping your pledge.
Canadian backers are subject to GST/HST sales tax. Crowd funding is a form of pre-order and table top games are taxable goods. We are required to charge sales tax to backers in Canada by law. These costs will be charged in the Pledge Manager after the campaign.
Costs do not include customs fees (ex. VAT or duty fees) that may be applicable to your country, though we will do our best to mitigate these fees by shipping from inside of the EU, for example.
All stretch goals are "backer exclusive" items for Kickstarter backers who support this campaign. Remaining stock of these items will be available at Elzra's online shop and possibly at conventions. They will not be available through retail channels.

Important Notes Regarding Shipping
You will be charged shipping after the Kickstarter campaign ends based on the actual costs incurred to ship. We will collect this via our Pledge Manager.
We will ship your rewards to international fulfillment centers. Depending on where in the world you are, we will either ship to you from our center in Germany (EU backers), Canada (Canadian and US backers), Australia (Australia and New Zealand backers) or Hong Kong (all other international backers).
The following is a list of rough estimates for shipping a single copy of Catacombs Conquest (1kg weight). These are just estimates, and these costs may rise based on weight increases from unlocked stretch goals and if you choose to add the optional playmat and/or additional copies.
USA: CA$12-CA$18 to most states.
CANADA: CA$15-CA$20 to most cities.
LATIN AMERICA: CA$50-CA$75 to most countries.
ASIA: CA$10-CA$20 to China and Hong Kong. CA$35 to most other countries.
AUSTRALIA / NEW ZEALAND: CA$20-CA$24 to Australia. CA$27 to New Zealand.
INTERNATIONAL: CA$70 to most countries.

Due to the complexity of shipping to some regions, we cannot ship to the following countries: Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Afghanistan and Syria. In addition, we cannot ship to international PO boxes.
Please know that the Pledge Manager stage of this campaign will have a deadline (announced after the campaign in an update). If you fail to confirm your pledges after this deadline, your rewards will be shipped to you from the Elzra warehouse in Canada. As such, shipping costs may be considerably higher for those outside of Canada and the US.
Our guiding policy is that our backers receive their rewards before they are made available at retail or conventions. We will make our best effort to adhere to this policy, however we may not be able to meet this goal in some cases. If this is a concern, we encourage you to wait until the retail release of the game. Thank you for your understanding.
Risks and challenges
This is our (Elzra's) third Kickstarter project.
The first campaign was for the third edition of the award winning tabletop dexterity based dungeon crawl Catacombs (2014).
The second campaign was for the standalone, competitive team based game Catacombs & Castles (2016).
For the Catacombs Conquest campaign, we continue to use a Pledge Manager to manage customer orders and to mitigate miscommunication related to shipping address changes.
We are fully aware of potential delays that may happen with products that are produced overseas: printer production schedules, major holidays, shipping, and customs delays. We will work diligently to minimize these types of disruptions and promise to communicate transparently with our backers if they occur.
We have estimated delivery for February 2018. Due to the global logistics involved in shipping, some regions may receive their rewards sooner than others.
We have prepared as much as possible for a successful project. If the product cannot be produced and/or delivered due to some unforeseen circumstance, we will refund pledges..
Refunds may be given within 60 days of the campaign ending, including fees. After this time, refunds may be given minus the Kickstarter and payment processing fees due to us not being able to claim them back after 60 days.
We are unable to issue refunds once we have confirmed quantities and/or started production and/or if we have begun the packaging and shipment stages of the project.
If you do not confirm your shipping and pledge details within ten weeks of our notification via email, we will consider it abandoned.
By pledging on this Kickstarter campaign, you agree that our responsibility to you is for shipping your reward as entered into our Pledge Manager. You are responsible for import taxes, sales taxes or other fees that may be payable to relevant tax authorities. You also accept that you are fully liable for incorrect shipping details and will risk your pledge being unable to be delivered or lost in transit. You acknowledge that the final look and contents of your reward may be different from what is presented at the start of the campaign.
Please do not pledge for this Kickstarter and wait for the retail release, if you do not accept these proposed terms.
We charge applicable GST/HST to all orders from within Canada. This is a legal requirement to ensure our company's compliance with the Canada Revenue Agency's rules. Thank you for your understanding regarding this matter.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
