Frequently Asked Questions
1. If the project isn’t successful, the game will never make it to retail. As a small indie publisher, our general reach and distribution is limited. We’re hoping to improve this with each new game but there are no guarantees.
2. You will get the game first before any store. Backers received our first game at least a month before we started distributing the game in retail.
3. We rely on your support on Kickstarter to help us make our games a reality and as good as they can be!Last updated:
We feel that the Kickstarter price is incredibly competitive and a great value.
Maximum Apocalypse has over 120 unique illustrations across 350+ cards. They paint an incredible post-apocalyptic world and feel like they are ripped right out of the pages of a graphic novel.
Stretch goals will hopefully add more cards, illustrations, component upgrades and more throughout the campaign.
Keep in mind we are subsidizing shipping for you and that Kickstarter takes 5% off the top. So all our costs for art, graphic design, development, marketing etc come out of the remaining $20 or so.Last updated:
We are going to leave non-English copies to any potential partners down the road. The reason for this is because there is a fair amount of English on every card and tile in the game so just translating the rules would not be sufficient for non-English speakers to understand the game.Last updated:
Yes we have a solitaire / solo variant in the rulebook. Basically, you choose two survivors and then mash together their decks so that you can play from one hand and deck. This makes playing the game so much easier and faster and also creates some cool hybrid classes. Special Thanks to fellow game designer, Sam Bailey, for giving me the ideas behind this mode!Last updated:
Yes you can download our Print and Play prototype of Maximum Apocalypse for free from https://rockmanor.itch.io/. If you donate $1 or more, we will provide you with the final production Print and Play version.
A free prototype is also available on Tabletop Simulator.

Probably. There will likely be some Kickstarter/Con Exclusive add-ons that will be unlocked during the campaign.
There will definitely be Kickstarter Bonuses i.e. content that you get as a backer for free which will be in retail as an expansion for purchase.
I hope this will become clear as we start unlocking Stretch Goals, but you can take a look at our first campaign for Brass Empire to get an idea of what we like to do. The play mat and 21 promo cards have never been offered at Retail or outside of us directly.Last updated:
The game was designed to be very modular so we hope there will be many expansions available. Expansions will be designed as sets of new apocalypses, survivors and tiles. We hope to provide backers with the first expansion as part of this campaign as a stretch goal so stay tuned!Last updated:
Probably not, but we want to underpromise and overdeliver. Our goal is to have copies of the game for sale at PAX Unplugged in November of this year. That may be a little tight, but goals are good. We delivered our last campaign to backers in about 8-9 months, but there are a lot of factors that are out of our control when it comes to manufacturing, shipping and fulfillment.Last updated:
Once the games are on the boat and we have a clearer picture of our exact landing date, we do hope to offer Convention Pickups. After the campaign ends we will keep you updated on the progress of the game and offer convention pickups as we know more. We will also confirm our attendance at conventions for 2017-2018. If you end up picking up the game at a convention, we will refund your shipping payment shortly after we return.Last updated:
This question has popped up a few times, so I figured I'd answer it. The short answer is probably. We have a limited number of these packs left but we do have a few hundred that we take to conventions. Because these packs are located in the United States, we will include them to backers in North America on a first come first serve basis. For people in the EU and elsewhere, we will have to look into the expense of shipping these packs to the distribution centers in your country.Last updated:
