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.
They Like Alien Frontiers, Too
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.

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
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.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
