In Posthuman Saga you play as one of the last human survivors in a world where nature is reclaiming the planet and our mutated offspring are working to eradicate us.  

Just over a year ago all you wanted was to find the Fortress, the last human bastion in a region overrun by mutants. Today, you’re being sent out beyond the safety of its walls on a journey into the uncharted Wilds. There’s a dozen survivors for every mouth the Fortress can feed. It’s time to earn your place within its walls once and for all. 

In Posthuman Saga you'll be venturing into a weird and wonderful world where unknown threats await at every turn of the road. You'll need to forage for food, ammo and weapons if you want to survive. You'll desperately fight off human and mutant enemies in brutal brawls in which your weapons break and your wounds can lead to mutation. You'll meet a cast of strange and memorable characters and find yourself in unexpected situations during story encounters, which force you to make choices that might have consequences down the line. But don't linger long - you need to complete your mission before others do! Your reputation is at stake!

Posthuman Saga is a competitive, tactical survival adventure set in the post-apocalyptic world of Posthuman for 1 to 4 players. The game can be played in 3 modes: Solo, 2 to 4 players Competitive or Team Versus; where 2 teams of 2 players, each sharing a map, compete for the favour of the Fortress. It combines euro mechanics with finely crafted story to create an experience that will challenge your system-busting skills while immersing you in a rich post-apocalyptic world.  (For a short overview see Gameplay Overview below).

Key Features

  • Stories that blend the grit of post-apocalyptic survival with the quirks of human (and mutant!) nature.
  • Mechanics that are tightly coupled with theme creating an immersive experience. 
  • Modular map tiles and a variety of decks create a sandbox experience where no two games are alike.  
  • 3 Game modes: Solo, 2-4 Competitive and Team Versus.
  • Each Hero has their own starting items and sets of development cards allowing for a variety of possible builds for each character, that suit different playing styles and winning strategies. 
  • Deep world building and lore that evolve through the various analogue and digital games set in the Posthuman world.

To win you’ll need to earn reputation points by exploring a map made up of modular tiles and completing Mission Objectives before other players do...

...and score Recon Objectives made up of sequences of Scavenge Sites.

Gain map tiles through Map actions and bidding in the Broadcast event. 

Each turn you will secretly select one of four Actions to play.

 While exploring you’ll face story encounters…

…and combat Encounters. In melee combat you perform the following steps:

1) If you use a weapon discard a durability token then select one combat card and draw another one at random. (The selected one will exhaust after combat). 

2) The enemy rolls combat dice and adds their Combat results.

 3) Players then resolve the results on the Combat tracker.

 But above all... try to survive out there!

Posthuman Saga: Resistance Expansion

Posthuman Saga: Resistance Expansion continues the overarching story presented in the Base Game taking you deeper into the Wilds to track down Mutant Slave Trains carrying human captives and following them to a Mutant Stronghold.

Posthuman Saga: Resistance Expansion adds several new mechanics to the Posthuman Saga Base game along with new ways of scoring and winning the game. Resistance also adds a lot of new content, including 2 new Characters, new Followers, new Mission Objectives, new Event cards and the new Veteran Mutant die as well as a new deck of Level 3 Encounters including over 30 stories.

What Changed From The First Posthuman?

The short answer is: everything. Posthuman Saga is a completely different game, not a second edition or re-design of the first game. Please watch the preview videos above for an overview of how the game plays. All the components in Posthuman Saga are different from those of the original Posthuman and the vast majority of the characters and enemies are either new or have been re-drawn.

Are You a Backer of The First Posthuman Game?  

Thank You! To show our appreciation we are giving away the Posthuman: The Wilds mini expansion for free to the original 5,500 backers of Posthuman when they back at Explorer level or higher. This includes new Events, new Encounters, and 4 characters that made it out of the world of Vengeance alive. You will need to enter your backer number in the pledge manager after the end of the campaign as a proof of backing.  


Not a Posthuman backer but would love to grab a copy of the original Posthuman base game?  

Due to popular demand, the original Posthuman game will be available in the pledge manager when the campaign ends. Backing this campaign at any pledge level will give you access to the pledge manager. 

IMPORTANT: The only copies of Posthuman left are located in Europe. If you are in Europe you will be given the choice to bundle your shipping with your Posthuman Saga pledge or have them sent right after the campaign by paying separate shipping. For backers outside of Europe the original Posthuman game will be shipped separately from Europe. We also have a very limited number of dice packs and Defiant Expansions available for the first Posthuman game. These will be available in the Pledge Manager and also ship from Europe.

If you pledge for the original Posthuman Base Game during the Pledge Manager you will receive The Wilds: Mini Expansion for free with your pledge.

 

Posthuman Saga will be US, Europe, Canada, China and Australia friendly! 

Shipping will be charged after the campaign ends through CrowdOx pledge manager. We will cover the cost to ship to our partners' depots within the USA, Europe, Canada, China and Australia in order to keep the shipping costs as low as possible for you. The following are the estimated shipping costs to various regions**:

Malta Backers: Backers in Malta (EU) may pick up their games for free from Malta Geek Paradise or pay EU shipping and get it delivered to their door.

* Asia: This includes the following countries: Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam.

** Note that these prices may vary slightly during the Pledge Manager.

We are offering two tiers of Retailer Pledges. The amount shown on these pledges is a deposit for the full amount. The remainder will be paid along with Shipping in the Pledge Manager.  Feel free to message us for more detailed information before you pledge. 

Retailers will need to provide proof of business in the form of a business certificate to qualify for the discounted rate.

**Kickstarter-Limited Exclusivity - Items marked with a ** like the Posthuman Saga Deluxe Edition and the Outcast Promo Pack will not enter regular distribution.

Risks and challenges

Posthuman Saga will be the 6th game Mighty Boards has developed and run successfully on Kickstarter. We have learnt a lot from past titles and continue our process of improving our game design, art, product design and component quality. We had a few hiccups in the past with printers and fulfilment partners not living up to our expectations, so we have stopped working with them. Moreover, we are now working with partners that come highly recommended, from our ever-growing network of Kickstarter creator veterans with whom we share knowledge on a regular basis.

We now have a great manufacturing partner that has done games for major publishers and creators and who has come recommended with impeccable credentials.

Posthuman Saga has been tested by 8 groups in the US, Europe and Asia. A new batch of test groups will be brought in after the end of the Kickstarter to test the final content and then, finally, yet another wave of blind testers will be brought in to blind test the rulebook and the finished product. We are also working with two developers, Jonathan Gilmour (Dead of Winter, Dinosaur Island, Wasteland Express Delivery Service) and Jonathan Harrington (Vengeance) to ensure that the game is as polished as can be when it goes to print.

Having said all the above there are always things that can come up that will be beyond our control. What we do promise you is that we always put our backers first, and will continue to do so in this campaign. We also promise to strive for the highest quality product we can provide and, most importantly, to always be as transparent with you as possible.
