About this project
Thank you so much to everyone for helping us meet our goal! We're pleased to present our first stretch goal, a special Referee miniature sculpted by Jason Wiebe. If we reach $20,000, with each copy of the game you get here through Kickstarter, you'll receive a complimentary Referee mini that can be used during the game. You can either track the Jam number and Scoring Pass number or mark which team has the Lead Jammer.
Impact City Roller Derby is a board game that captures all the action of the fastest growing sport in America – women’s flat track roller derby. Each player takes control of a team of five Rollergirls including a Jammer, Pivot and three Blockers. Your Jammer zooms around the track and scores points by weaving through the pack and passing your opponents Blockers. The Blockers play both offense and defense as they open up holes for your Jammer to whip them through and also attempt to slow down or send the opposing Jammer flying off her skates. Skate Fast….Hit Hard!
In Impact City Roller Derby, you get to simulate the speed, strategy and blocking that makes the sport so exciting. Each game is a series of short races, called jams, where your Jammer tries to score as many points as possible by lapping opposing player. Each player takes alternating turns moving their Rollergirls and making strategic decisions to help their cause or hinder the opponent.
The game can be played with Scrimmage rules in just 1 hour and the Full Bout rules can be played in under 2 hours.

Check out this awesome detailed playthrough!
The Jammer Meeple is ready to race around the track. Her first goal is the big one … funding the game! After we hit that goal, we’ll post a new goal line on the track for the Jammer Meeple to reach to get a new Stretch Reward that we’ll announce. So let’s help her race around this track as quickly as possible.
The box set comes with everything you need to play and is packed with Derby goodness:
Full Color Board - This 17”x22” board contains the flat track the skaters move around, Jammer movement dice tracker and an area to track both player movement and which jam you are on.
Action Card Deck
It includes 35 Action Cards and the Penalty Box. The three card types are Offensive, Defensive and Foul! The Offensive and Defensive cards are used in the special card zones denoted by the yellow arrow symbols spaces on the board. The cards feature real skaters from the Naptown Roller Girls!
Once the game is produced, we will have the ability to put your local team’s pictures on a deck of Action Cards to use as a fundraising vehicle for your team. We wanted this game to give back to this incredible sport since we know derby teams can always use new and easy fundraiser sources.
Dice - The game comes with 4 different shapes of dice (a D6, D8, D10, and D12). These are used to roll for special actions to determine their success or failure.
Tokens - The game comes with tokens to help keep track of player movement and the health status of your Rollergirls (down or winded).
You can upgrade the Meeples in the box set with different teams of one-piece unpainted pewter miniatures from Impact Miniatures. You can even paint them to match your local team! There are four different teams available. At Lead Jammer level, you'll receive two of your choice. You'll be able to select which teams you'll receive through Shop.GameSalute.com, when the game is ready to ship later this year. You'll also be able to add additional copies of the game and/or other miniatures sets at the same time (in case you'd like more than two sets of minis).
To make sure that Impact City Roller Derby captured the game of flat track roller derby as best as possible, we have been playtesting the game with different groups for over a year. Our final round of playtesting was sent out to over 30 different Roller Derby leagues in the United States, Australia, Canada, United Kingdom, Netherlands and Spain. These final playtesters were either Rollergirls, Husbands of Rollergirls, Referees, NTOs or Derby bloggers. With two months of their feedback, we were able to fine tune and finalize the game to be as representative of the sport as possible while still being a fast-paced, easy-to-play, strategic board game.
Get special dice to use for throwing blocks during the game. A special D6 and D10 will have a pair of derby skates engraved on them in place of the 1 to add more derby to your game.

So Zombie games made over $1 Million in the last month on KickStarter. There are 214 WFTDA Full Member and Apprentice leagues. If just 7 people from each WFTDA league pledged for the KickStarter for Impact City Roller Derby we would hit our funding goal AND planned Stretch reward goals. And that is just the WFTDA leagues! Add in the OSDA, JRDA, RDAC and many, many more and we really could prove that Derby Girls > Zombies as shown in the video above. We know this is an incredible sport and community and that this game can be successful if the word gets out. So if you can give this project a post on Facebook or Twitter so we can make sure as many derby fans know about this KickStarter, your support is greatly appreciated!

Your pledge level does NOT include shipping. You will pay for shipping separately, when your items are ready to ship. So there's no need to include shipping with your pledge. We will email you a link to enter your info, which will also allow you to save on shipping if (for example), you wanted to combine your package with other backers or combine other eligible projects that are fulfilled by Game Salute. Your final shipping cost will be based on the actual cost to ship to wherever you are. Your actual shipping cost will be based on the total weight of the items you're having shipping together as well as your location. Here's a handy chart of ESTIMATED shipping costs based on your pledge level and location. Shipping costs should not exceed these estimates for most backers. They may be lower in many cases and higher in some cases (like if you live in Tanzania and we have to personally deliver your game by sea turtle).
