Alien Frontiers 4th Edition Is In Production 

Let's get things out in the open right from the start.  This is not a campaign to fund the printing of Alien Frontiers 4th Edition. It's already at the printers. It's going to be printed. You can leave right now and be confident that your favorite local game store will have Alien Frontiers in stock before the end of the year.

So, Why Are We Here?

First, to give you the opportunity to reserve your copy of Alien Frontiers 4th Edition. With all the goodies that have been incorporated into this new edition, that seems quite tempting

But that's not enough! Thanks to the AMAZING support of our backers, the Promo Pack that everyone gets with a $10 or higher pledge, has grown to 55 Cards...and it just keeps GROWING!

Your generous pledges have also created the Faction Packs Collection shown above. If you already have Factions, then these are an excellent set of boosters to give you even more player powers.

Pledge Levels

Pledge Add-Ons

To add an item, make your initial pledge as usual, then figure out what your total pledge would be with the add-on items. Return to the project page and click the blue MANAGE YOUR PLEDGE button. Then enter your new TOTAL PLEDGE amount and follow the directions to approve that pledge through Amazon Payments. When the project is over, we'll send out a survey to ask exactly what items you'd like as part of your pledge package.

In the video, we mentioned a FREE Print & Play.  We're giving you the opportunity to test out the next Alien Frontiers expansion––Outer Belt, designed by Randall Bart and Tory Niemann. Click the image above to download the print-and-play PDF for Outer Belt. There's no final art, you're going to have to do a bit of printing and cutting, and you'll need to add in an extra die of your own, but if you already have Alien Frontiers and want to try out the new expansion this is the right place for you.

We'll reserve Update #1 for your Outer Belt feedback. Just post your comments on how you liked or didn't like the expansion, what you would change or lock-down as DONE, and what you would add to or remove from the expansion.  This is your opportunity to make the next Alien Frontiers expansion the best that it can be. 

Your Kickstarter rewards will be shipped from the USA.

If your rewards are to be shipped outside of the USA, your international pledge will be add necessary postage charges. You will be responsible for any import fees, brokerage or delivery surcharges, or applicable taxes that may be levied after we have shipped your package.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Clever Mojo Games was a pioneer when we ran our first Kickstarter campaign three years ago for Alien Frontiers 1st Edition. We've fulfilled half-a-dozen campaigns since then and released 2 more editions of Alien Frontiers along with 3 expansions. We're well acquainted with all the hiccups, speed bumps, and uncontrollable delays that a project encounters in the long journey from pipe-dream to street-date. We will do our best to avoid as many of the problems as possible and will keep you well-informed about the ones that trip us up despite our best-laid plans.

    THE TREASURES OF SPICA ......................................................... Alien Frontiers + Promo Pack + Free Shipping within the USA ......................................................... You've been searching from one end of the Hegemony to the other for a certain game that seems more myth than reality. You've traveled from the mist-shrouded ruins on Rigel IV to the orbital markets around Barnard's Star. You even consulted the hypermedia oracle-droid Cracked-03062013, but all she said was "Oh, you poor boy." At your whit's end, you fall into a seedy spaceport bar and overhear a six-armed Spican telling of a rare-games delivery he made at his previous port-of-call. You toss five credits to the barkeep and dash back to your ship to chase down this new lead.

    THE WEALTH OF PROCYON ......................................................... Alien Frontiers + Factions + Faction Pack #1 + Promo Pack + Free Shipping within the USA ......................................................... When the cataclysm came to your homeworld of Procyon II, you were ready. The aliens swarmed the planet, took hostages, interrogated prisoners, laid waste to cities, but you were safely in your bunker. A resistance rose up to fight the invaders and, while they fought for freedom, you stayed in hiding to protect your most prized possessions. The airwaves buzzed with the alien high-commander's demands for a very specific set of relics to be turned over to them at once, but you turned a deaf ear to the broadcasts as you examined your precious collection of games and the three space-blue boxes that the alien invaders would never acquire.

    THE WONDERS OF BETELGEUSE ......................................................... Alien Frontiers x6 + Promo Pack x6 + Free Shipping within the USA ......................................................... Purchase Pools will find a nice bit of savings with this six-pack of Alien Frontiers. ......................................................... Retail Stores will find this to be the perfect pledge level to show support for Alien Frontiers thanks to Springboard Local Support http://bit.ly/106dCXT ......................................................... Sure, you're a skilled space scrapper, and you know the laws of space salvage backwards and forwards, but when six surly spacers converge on one drifting cargo pod in the Betelgeuse system, no one's going to quote Hegemonic law! It's every scrapper for himself and blast anyone who gets between you and the prize. Well, that's the way it always worked out before; this time though, something wonderful happened. When the half-dozen recon-droids cracked open the pod and saw the six space-blue game boxes inside, each droid latched onto one box and raced back to its mothership. Just one copy of the fabled game was enough to satisfy and no captain wanted to risk losing his copy at the wrong end of a plasma cannon.
