UPDATE: FINAL FEW DAYS of the campaign! The $15,000 stretch reward was recently met and blown by! We have only a few days left to go so we have put out the $20,000 reward. Originally we had planned on a $25,000 reward after the $15,000 but we wanted to give this project a realistic chance to get another reward at the $20,000 level so are happy to announce FREE CARD SLEEVES for all rewards over $17 if we can get to $20,000!
Yes, if your reward is the $17 level reward you will get a free pack of Mayday Card Sleeves. If you are at the $25 reward level you will get 2 packs. At the $45 level or higher will get 4 packs of card sleeves in addition to everything else, if we can reach the $20,000 funding goal in the next few days!
Please consider taking advantage of our backer-only bonus items you can take advantage of and help us reach this goal!
You asked for it, you got it! Here is a brief review/overview of the game on Wired.com!
Also The Dice Tower Preview is up:
Also, here is the color of the Tshirt, add to any pledge for just $8 and we will ask you later about the size, S, M, L, XL or XXL (+$2) or XXXL (+$2). The logo will be like the one on the image in the Update #7.
Check out more specs and discussion on this game over on BoardGameGeek HERE.
Be sure and check out the rulebook that comes with In Cahoots! HERE.
Let's first start by saying if you've never heard of Eaten By Zombies then you're missing out! It was one of the top 10 most funded Kickstarter Board/Card Games of all time, effectively selling out almost the entire first print run in late 2011. You can check that Kickstarter project HERE.
Here is the review of the mechanics of the game by Drakkenstrike. Note the mechanics of "In Cahoots" are the same as the original 4-player game.
Tom Vasel's review of the game, the first 9 minutes are explaining how the game plays, the last couple are how he loved it! In fact, EBZ Card game made his top 10 Card Games of 2011 and he even mentions how he likes the game best as a 2-player game like In Cahoots will be!
But what if you are one of over 1,000 people who already backed the first game on Kickstarter? Well a lot of you have "In Cahoots" already coming to you by your prior pledges, that has not changed. You will get your advanced copies as well as all of the bonus cards or other stretch goal items we promise here to new backers, even if they were not specifically promised in the original kickstarter! For those of you who only backed the base game last time, you can back the new "In Cahoots" and still get all of the extras too!
We are finally coming out with the much anticipated expansion/sequel to the Eaten By Zombies game. Max, the designer, designed EBZ to be expandable which means the new In Cahoots! is not just a 2-player stand alone deck builder, but ALSO works as a 5-6 player expansion to the original! That's right, it combines with the 4-player game to make a 5-6 player game. The 4-player game comes with a foam insert which can easily be removed to accommodate In Cahoot's.
You can check out the full rules HERE.
Max and John have really outdone themselves with the cards in this game! Featuring 11 totally new swag cards, two new starting player decks, and five unique zombies JUST for this game! The new zombies are REALLY great, they come directly from fans from the last Kickstarter! They supplied the images and Max and John supplied the gore to make some really great cards! We just loved these and know you will too. See below the pictures submitted along side the final zombie cards from each contributor!
We hope you will agree the two new starting players "Dean" and "Nancy" fit right in with our growing survivor family!
With 11 new swag card sets you'll be able to replay this game many, many times and never have the same game twice. You can add these to the existing swag piles from the original 4-player game for even more diversity!
The award-winning Eaten By Zombies game was immediately recognized as one of the best game boxes in a long time. So how about for In Cahoots? Max has designed it to look like an ammo pouch and to be quite minimalist in it's final presentation, while still retaining a nice package for retail shelves. Here is Max's brief overview of how the final box will look.
The box will be of the same great material as the original EBZ game and the cards will also be of the same amazing quality!
So let's get down to the nitty gritty. What's in it for you? Well as a backer to this project we will start with some really great rewards including:
EVERYONE who backs this project for a copy of In Cahoots! will get an ADVANCED copy of the game. We will ship it out at directly to you at least 3 weeks before it is for sale anywhere else! You are making this project happen and deserve to be rewarded!
Promo Packs! That is right, there are some promo packs that every backer at $16 or higher will receive. What promo packs are there and how many? That all depends on how the funding goes. We can say for sure that we have at least 4 promo packs possible right now! As we reach our stretch goals we will reveal the new promo that EVERYONE over $17 in backing will receive.
Let us be perfectly clear here, these are NOT kickstarter EXCLUSIVE PACKS! We will run enough to be sure we have them for all Kickstarter backers, but that will mean there will be a few extra and we will probably sell them to people somewhere/somehow. But they will pay more since you are getting them first, and at no extra cost! They will not be widely distributed however and you won't be able to pick them up in stores (unless a specific store is a store backer of course).
There are a very few limited or signed editions up as rewards for backers who go the extra mile. There are very few of these as many of them have already been pledged to backers of our first EBZ kickstarter campaign. If you want these you will have to fight through the horde to get them!
These are just crazy nice! Max and John did two of these for themselves and they have agreed to do 10 of these special gallery wrapped, 24 X 18 inch posters, signed and numbered for just 10 backers. These are truly incredible and you will love them! Check out these pictures from Max's wall.
Here is where it gets good! We reached a total of almost ten times our goal on the first Eaten By Zombies, and expect this campaign has a lot of potential as well. So where can we go with this? Remember EVERY BACKER over $17 gets ALL of these rewards for every level we attain. We will update this image every time we achieve a new milestone too, unlocking details of each reward as we go.
