Patriot, Frontiersman, Southern Gentleman, Soldier, Trapper, Settler, Indian Scout, Statesman, Explorer... in Legends of the American Frontier you decide the course of life your character takes.

Legends of the American Frontier is an adventure game for 3 - 5 players in which players live the life of a frontiersman in the colonial days of America, starting just after the Revolutionary War in the 1780s and running through the early 1800s. Through the course of the game, the history of each character will unfold through the adventures the player sends them on! 

The characters gain rewards in the form of Status, Fame, Wealth, and Happiness tokens that are spent on Rewards that will further define the life and legend of the character.

The objective of the game is to score the most points through completing Adventures and purchasing Rewards. All Adventures and Rewards are added to the characters Legend. 

At the end of the game, each player will tell his character’s life story to the group based on their Legend developed over the course of play then proceed to the final scoring!

Shipping is expensive. We've calculated the cost to ship this game to backers around the world and we're subsidizing that to help keep your costs down. The cost to ship this game to backers in the USA is $9.86. Game Salute is covering $9.86 of the shipping cost for ALL backers around the world. That means that the pledge level for US backers includes shipping. For international backers, we're passing along the same savings on shipping.

To keep the shipping costs as low as possible, we ship packages via a variety of shipping services depending on your specific location. We use USPS, FedEx, UPS, and DHL. 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.

Let us know when you pledge at a retailer level and we'll list your store here to encourage local backers to choose in-store delivery through Game Salute Local Support, earning you the full margin on those games, too, just as if you had sold them yourself.

Risks and challenges

As we enter the crowdfunding phase, Legends of the American Frontier is looking good. Certain stretch goals will require additional art if we fund at those levels, so we have set an extended delivery date to be on the safe side. Every game project is subject to potential production delays, but we believe we've allowed enough wiggle-room for Legends of the American Frontier The final challenge is getting the game and rewards out to the backers. Game Salute is well versed in Kickstarter reward fulfillment and we are prepared to meet this challenge for Legends of the American Frontier.
