A BRAND NEW Superhero Board Game is coming to your table! Alphas is a game of tactical, objective based Skirmishes and fully illustrated Graphic Novels to play through a progressive story with. Created and developed by the same team who made Tabula Rasa, Alphas will immerse you in a world where having powers and abilities are the norm.
Can be played in Scenario Books as a 1 vs All or Coop Game, and up to 4 Players in Skirmishes!
Suit up! Assemble your super team and battle other players in Objective Based Skirmishes against 1-3 other teams or gather your team and play through the progressive Story of Alphas by grabbing the Graphic Novels and digging in!
as well as;
Each Scenario in the Graphic Novels has consequences that carry through the entire book for either side, the heroes or the villains! Winning a Scenario as the heroes may give you a boost when starting the next scenario, or deny your opponent a more powerful set of Activation Cards. Winning as the Villain Player though may allow you to cull the Enhancement Deck or lower maximum Health on a Hero! Be careful dealing with any given threat!
Each Alpha comes with their own Character Card, complete with all the information you need. Their Powers, Special Setup Instructions and their Traits.
If that wasn't enough, Whether you are fighting in the Shimmer District of Titan City, the Titan Financial District or hopefully, other environments eventually, Alphas is a game played on a 3 Dimensional board.
Height and Buildings influence many things in Alphas. Buildings offer variety to the battlefield and ways where Alphas with Flight, Super Speed, Teleportation or even the ability to Leap interact with these things. Characters who gain Elevation bonuses like Legend and his bow may also find them useful.

Look for these reviews during the campaign!
Based on pricing for this game and it's weight being uncertain until the end of the campaign, we will be charging shipping after the Kickstarter concludes based on the actual costs incurred to ship. We will collect this after the campaign ends.
We hope this feels like a good decision to your the backers as it offers us a more diverse set of shippers and options as the campaign progresses, allowing us to ship from hubs inside other countries. We understand and empathize what a pain shipping is for everyone, and our aim is to be as fair and transparent with shipping throughout the process. We hope you remain understanding and empathetic to us as well! Below are estimates for each country during shipping (assuming we are sending the Core Game Box;
United States: $11 - 22 (Continental), $30 (Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico)
Canada: $14 - $30 for most areas.
Europe: $22 - $35 to most countries.Australia: $20 - $40.
New Zealand: $30 - $35.Latin and South America: $60 - $70.
Asia: $15 - $20 (China), $20 - $30 for most other countries (We have no current estimates for Malaysia or Singapore)
WE WILL NOT SHIP TO THE FOLLOWING COUNTRIES: Afghanistan, Brazil, Ukraine, Russia or Greece based on past experiences and/or rates/pricing and custom laws.
Any pledges that remain unconfirmed after fulfillment from the Manufacturer has begun will be shipped at a later date from our place in the US and may incur more charges.
Risks and challenges
Anything manufactured really anywhere can suffer Production, Shipping or Custom Delays on any and either end. The estimated delivery is meant to be a goal more than a firm timeline, and is indicative of US Backers. Due to the complexity of the shipping and fulfillment process, some regions of the world likely will receive their rewards before others.
We are happy to refund pledges within the 14 day post campaign window, or in the instance that a reward may not be delivered for any reason out of our own or your control. We believe that since about 95% of the Core Games content is done though, we should be on track to deliver a great game to you without issue. Currently we are finishing up production on our previous title Tabula Rasa, and it is on track to deliver the game on time.
Thank you for your time and consideration, we hope you enjoy the game and the campaign! From all of us at Kid Loves Tiger Games;
Erica Wiebusch, Ben Pohl, Ronald Kam, Chris Peach and Elle Hansen!
