Village Attacks: Grim Dynasty

£293,597

 It appears…there are many places where evil calls home. In far off lands, both ancient and vast, live yet more otherworldly creatures that terrify and prey upon the mortals of this world. But wherever there is oppression, the seeds of defiance will take root and grow...

Village Attacks: Grim Dynasty is a brand new expansion to the hit fully co-operative castle defence game, steeped in the folklore of ancient China. Players must continue the ceaseless war with the mortal realm, taking on the roles of Monsters and defending their home from the near-endless waves of villagers who seek to end you once and for all!

 Become the horrors that haunt the ancient lands of China! Defend the castle from the tides of Villagers, both old and new, with your fantastical powers and abilities, and remind the mortals why they fear you so. 

 Bolstering the ranks of the already troublesome villagers is the Militia. Poorly trained and perhaps even worse equipped, they post little threat to you…that is, until a Tactician appears! Tacticians are capable of organising the Militia and executing deadly tactics! 

 Artefacts are a new kind of Trap card that lets players place permanent bonuses around the map. They are expensive, but Artefacts can change the tide of any conflict!


Ranked #3 by The Dice Tower in their Games that Keep Getting Better!

Following our successful partnership on Village Attacks first campaign we are excited to announce that we have the following partners on board again for Grim Dynasty who will produce the game, rulebook and add-ons in their native tongues.

Last Level Distribuciones will be delivering our Spanish version

Legion Distribution will be flying the flag for the French.

You can pledge for these language versions in the pledge manager survey after the kickstarter campaign has ended by selecting the pledge with the appropriate flag.

We are also working hard to confirm a German partner (as our previous partner Blackfire EU has since been taken over by Asmodee) and we had very positive meetings at Essen, Spiel. We can only work as fast as our potential partners, however, and as yet we have not dotted all the 'i's' or crossed all the 't's'. It is our anticipation that we will be able to formerly announce a German partner within the pledge manager, however until then we are happy to confirm that we, Grimlord Games, will self publish all Village Attacks expansions in German (existing and new to Grim Dynsasty). Without a formal German publishing partner, we will not, however be able to run a second print run of the core game in German. Hopefully this will not be an issue anyway. 

 Please note we cannot ship to Brazil, Russia, PO Boxes or Armed Forces Post Offices (APOs). For backers based in Norway we will require your PID number. 

UK - £5-£10

USA & Europe - £15-20 

Switzerland & Norway - £25 - £30

Canada - £15-£25

China & Hong Kong - £15-£20

Latin America - £50-60

Oceania - £25-35

Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam - £25-£30

Everywhere else - £35+

These prices are estimates based on the current exchange rate and 4kg volumetirc weight (standard miniature game weight). The final shipping prices will depend on weight of your total order. It will be detailed in the pledge manager where you will be asked to confirm your final order, pay shipping fees and input your shipping address after the Kickstarter campaign has finished.  You will never be up-charged for shipping once the pledge manager has closed. The exception to this rule is if you should change the country to which your order has been addressed.

Shipping and fulfilment is something we work hard to improve on each new Kickstarter.We have learnt a number of lessons with each new title distribution and try and implement positive changes to cater for any issues incurred the next time around. With this campaign, more than ever we are moving to make it the smoothest and most efficient campaign across all areas, and especially the fulfilment process.

In the interest of being transparent we like to give everyone a bit of clarity on the shipping process. Once the games have finished in production they need to be transported to our fulfilment hubs to get ready to be processed, packed and posted to you. Usually this means freight shipment from China to the US, UK and Australasia with overland transportation to Asia. Once the goods arrive at their destination port, they need to clear customs before they can be moved to our fulfilment partners' warehouses. Generally once the games have left port in China, backers can expect approx 8 week minimum period to receiving their games.

UK & EU, ROW 

Our current fulfilment partner, based in the UK, supporting fulfilment of all UK, EU and ROW backers (excluding Russia, Israel and Brazil) is Spiral Galaxy Games.

USA

Our US partner remains Quartermaster Logistics (QML) and this will be our third project fulfilment with them. QML generally use FEDEX and USPS as their main carriers. All orders will be tracked with a tracking email sent directly to your email once the order has been dispatched.

Canada

We plan to ship all Canadian orders from within Canada and are currently looking at different suppliers to find the right logistics partner for this to ensure cost, efficiency, speed and packaging suitability are above par.

Asia, Israel & Australasia 

Orders to these regions will be handled centrally by our Asian fulfilment partner VFI. 

Refunds

We will refund you in full for any pledge made during a Kickstarter campaign. Once the campaign has ended we will refund you your pledge amount minus the Kickstarter and payment processing fees (which we cannot get back from them), which is usually 10% of the original pledge.  

Once the pledge manager is closed no refunds are possible, as we have begun production of your order.

If a component cannot be delivered at all we will refund it completely including fees.

All refunds will be processed in GBP. Read more about our refund policy here https://www.grimlordgames.com/terms-conditions

Risks and challenges

This is our 5th Kickstarter. To date we have fulfilled three and have one currently in production.

Delays
As with all board game projects, there are potential unforeseen delays, especially with production, shipping and customs, though we’re confident that game will be delivered with the time frame set out on the campaign page.

Please remember that the shipping date is a general estimate and that backers in different regions of the world may receive their pledges earlier than others.

We have established a reputation for communication and transparency with our backers. We post regular updates and involve our backer community in game development every step of the way. Unforeseen delays, if they happen, can be frustrating for all concerned but rest assured these are usually due to improvements made to ensure you receive the best quality product at the end of the campaign.

Brexit
Whatever happens with Brexit we are committed to providing 'friendly shipping' wherever possible to our backers, even if that means moving our fulfilment out of the UK to a European destination.

Terms & conditions
If you do not confirm your shipping and pledge details prior to the pledge manager closing or within 8 weeks of our notification to do so it will be treated as abandoned. We will however look at each case sympathetically and try our best to satisfy each customer.

By pledging on Kickstarter you agree that our responsibility to you is for shipping your order as entered into our pledge management system. You are responsible for updating or changing your shipping address as well as import or other duties that may be payable to relevant tax authorities. You accept that you are fully liable for incorrect shipping details and will risk your pledge being unable to be delivered or lost in transit.

Should an order be ‘returned to sender’ we will endeavour to send it out to you, the customer again, at your additional shipping cost.

Please note we are unable to ship to PO Boxes or APOs.

If you do not accept the proposed terms please do not pledge on this Kickstarter project and wait for general retail release. Please read our full terms and condition here https://www.grimlordgames.com/terms-conditions
