Wasteland Justice is the début board game from Madbeard Games. Madbeard Games are a fledgling board game design and publishing company.

In Wasteland Justice you take on the role of a post apocalypse clan leader organising and racing a team of drivers and vehicles on a hi-octane wasteland track.

  • 4 custom hot transfer dice, 3 movement dice (one for each vehicle size) and 1 weapon die.
  • 12 team vehicle models, 3 different sculpts in 4 colours.

Previews

UndeadViking Video Review (note components shown in the video are prototype versions)

“It is a lighter tactical strategy game but it is phenomenally fun and never did I feel my turn was wasted... ”

Gamefest Review

4/5 Dragons - "Bearing in mind this was a preview copy the components were of good quality and showed excellent production values. The artwork is excellent and very evocative."

At £250 - King (or Queen)  of the Desert (example below) -  Our character artist (Andres) will create a unique Wasteland Justice driver based upon a supplied photo. These driver cards will either be added to the base game, if there is no impact on our production time scales, otherwise we will create a promotion pack for all backers to include these additional driver cards.  We will work with the backers to decide upon the drivers' unique ability, but Madbeard Games decision will be final to avoid any drastic game play changes.

Merchants of the Wasteland - we will be contacting all backers at this level to provide evidence that they are a retailer.  This level this is for 5 full games. Once funded and before we confirm shipping, you may request additional copies of the game should you require.

Stretch Goals

 

We would like to make Wasteland Justice the best game it can be, we have the following stretch goals lined up on the starting grid;

£35,000 - Don't get us wrong, we love the weight and feel of the cards currently, but that extra weight and linen feel will provide that tactile edge. (This will be in the box).

£50,000 - Ramming the same class vehicle and tired of waiting those few seconds to use the same die as your opponent?  Wait no longer!  We will add an extra set of the custom dice to the game. (This may be a KS exclusive and the dice may be a separate item to the core game in your delivery).

£75,000 - During standard game set-up, 1 wreck model is randomly placed per track piece. With more wrecks we will add into the rules alternative set-up of two wrecks per track piece for extra chaos mode. Surely no-one would try three wrecks pre track piece...that would just be bedlam! (This may be a KS exclusive and the extra wreck models may be a separate item to the core game in your delivery).

Depending on interest, other stretch goals maybe added.

Shipping costs

Shipping is added on to each pledge (except for £1 or more reward level), Wasteland Justice should weigh in at around 2.8kg.  These are the shipping costs for individual* game rewards that will be added to your pledge;

 If your location is not listed, please contact us and we will get a quote and try to add the shipping option in.

Risks and challenges

Before launching, we have got all core components to a fully ready state for our chosen manufacturer (Boda - http://www.bdboardgame.com/index.php) so they will be ready to start production as soon as our Kickstarter funds have cleared. The only caveat here is stretch goals, depending if we are successful to reach stretch goals they may extend our delivery estimate .

Although great and fantastic bonuses in board games, stretch goals, can unbalance the core game and extend production times. We have therefore tried to view stretch goals/some bespoke rewards slightly differently from normal. These bespoke rewards or additional stretch goals if we unlock the initial 3, will either state "in the box" or "in a separate packet."

Stretch goals "in the box" will not impact our production estimate. The stretch goals "separate packet" will be designed asap and produced in parallel (mainly due to additional art requirements) to the base game. The separate packet items will still be shipped with the core game but in a separate packet(s).

Matthew and Joe are board gamers and have backed numerous games on Kickstarter, we have seen projects run well and projects run not so well. We would like to think we will be bringing the things we have seen done well and learning from those that have encountered some hiccups (in production, unforeseen costs, delays other timing oversights etc) and combining that into a well run project.

Don't get this wrong, we will make mistakes, it would be foolish of us to believe we are perfect. However we will put our hands up when we go wrong and most importantly we will communicate every step of the way and provide regular updates. We strongly believe that our backers should know their upfront costs. Should anything unforeseen happen that requires additional expenditure we will meet this ourselves to ensure delivery of the game to our backers.
