Game Salute Guaranteed is our promise that Top Promoter will be produced with quality components and that you will enjoy the time you spend with the game. If you're not satisfied with Top Promoter simply return it to our headquarters within 30 days of receiving it, and we'll refund your pledge. That's our no-questions-asked money-back guarantee.

In Top Promoter you play the men and women bankrolling a series of boxing matches. Your objective: Promote the best boxers, fill the stands for great matches, and bring home the most money at the end of it all.

Each player has his own deck of 15 fighters and five action cards. Each round, players simultaneously play a fighter face-down, then reveal them at the same time. These cards get played into locations in the center of the table.

Once a location has three fights, you will roll to determine who wins each boxing match. Each fighter has a number of dice he rolls that can be modified with action cards or by fighting in his home location.  Top Promoter is a light game that inspires trash talking and cheering as the underdog takes down the favorite!

A WORD FROM THE DESIGNER!

Watch the game designer Justin Moore play a prototype at GenCon 2012!


Just for funding, we're going to throw in two Kickstarter exclusive Locations!

We will continue to reveal additional Stretch Goals as the project funds.

What people are saying about Top Promoter...

With Game Salute Local Support, you can pledge for Top Promoter here AND support your local store. Simply select your favorite local store when you complete your delivery survey and your pledge will benefit the store just as if you purchased the game through the store. You can check out the details here. You can use GameStoreLocator.com to find a Game Salute Select Store near you. If your favorite store is not on the list, be sure to ask them to sign up today at http://www.gamesalute.com/gamestorelocator/submission/.

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 $7.78, so, Game Salute is covering $7.78 of the shipping cost for ALL backers around the world. That means that the pledge level for USA backers includes shipping and for international backers, we're passing along the same savings on shipping. Simply check the chart below, find your destination group, then follow the line to see you total pledge amount in blue.

Welterweight

Lightweight

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.

We are pleased to offer access to our game designers and creative team for podcast, blog, newspaper, or television interviews. Team members can also be present for conventions and event appearances with a timely invitation and appropriate travel and lodging expense allowances. Please contact Levi Mote at Levi@GameSalute.com to discuss any of these media support opportunities.

Risks and challenges

As we enter the crowdfunding phase, Top Promoter is virtually "Print Ready", but certain stretch goals will require additional art if we fund at those levels. For that reason, 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 Top Promoter. 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 Top Promoter.
