UPDATE: We have added a $130 support level on 12/15 because Canadians were clamoring for a chance to get in on the $100 support level.  Only 12 of these available since we are running low on copies of the game!

So Why Kickstarter?

When we were at Essen this year we talked with the designers and found they have only done one small printing of this game and were looking for ways to get this great game into the USA.  Rather than hoping and praying that some large company in the USA would produce and distribute the game sometime in the future they agreed to have Mayday Games take the last few copies available anywhere in the world and get them into the hands of US customers.  We hope that demand will be great enough here to warrant a larger printing of the game for the US market and if this Kickstarter is successful then Mayday will be able to license this game for a larger release into the US Market in 2012.   We only have a very few and limited number of copies of the game and when they are taken they are gone!

There is currently no planned date to get this game to the USA, so your support is vital!

About the game:

Rules: 

Terra Evolution is a fast-paced strategic deck/world-building game about species evolution, cataclysms and extinction. Build your world continent by continent as they rise above the ocean, then conquer them with your evolving species.

The game is easy to learn, yet it has strategical and tactical depth which makes it challenging, fun and addictive. The game has tons of replayability value since it can be played with so many styles and ideas and with deep strategical planning.

Terra Evolution is a deck-building game - yet it has a strong and exciting interaction between players. Try to defeat your opponents with skillful deck-building decisions, clever population/resource management, proper timing of cataclysms, and countless strategical and tactical choices. Use your resources and your population to defend your species from extinction, as your opponents start planning ice ages, volcanoes, asteroid impacts or numerous other cataclysmic attacks against your precious species, which only wants to survive and evolve into a more victorious species.

Harness the primeval forces of nature for your victory. The prosperity of your species rest in your hands.

Terra Evolution is a polished and fine-tuned version of the print-and-play game Evolution Earth: Cataclysm by Tomi Rantala.

Rewards:

Backers will all receive one of only 275 copies of the game left in circulation worldwide.  There is no reprint date for this game at present and we really need to see the success of this project to figure out the next step!  Backers will get numbered copies of these 275 as some rewards with other Mayday Games' products including some of our recently successful Kickstarter games like Eaten by Zombies, Get Bit! and Tok Tok Woodman.

Bonus: If funding goes over $5,000 then very copy of the game will come with 3 packs of Mayday Games Card Sleeves to sleeve every card plus some extra!

Rewards Update: We know all of you are excited just to get a limited, numbers copy of the first print run of the game as it is sold out world-wide at this point, but some of you are still interested in getting a LOW numbered copy of the game too.  So after a few backers suggested it we have decided to allocate the numbered copies like this:

$100 backer Level supporters:  #1 through #25 of the game

$55 backers: #26-75 of the game

$40 backers: #76-275 of the game.

We will assign these in random order inside the pledge levels, so you have just as much chance of getting #1 if you are the first supporter or the last supporter at the $100 level.  

Please check back for more backer-only updates in the coming days as the campaign gets close to ending!
