Alpha Playtester Pledge and Survivor Spotlight: Hunter

Posted by Mike Gnade (Creator)

Alpha Playtester

Before I talk about the hunter, I wanted to expand the alpha playtester pledge level. It’s not for everyone, but if you want to contribute to the development of the game, see some early stuff, or are interested in the game design process, you may want to take another look at this level. 

Here are some more details that I would like to confirm about the Alpha Playtester tier. I hope to continue to expand this list: 

  • You will receive a free Print and Play of the first expansion.
  • The Alpha will be expanded to include at least 1 character not included in the base game for feedback and playtesting purposes. There may be other promos, ideas and 'extra' things for these playtesters.

As far as the quality of the Alpha - if you've watched any of our preview videos (like the one below) that is very good representation of what you will receive.

Survivor Spotlight: The Hunter

The Hunter is the the stealthy scout of the group. She has a very high stealth rating and can slip by roaming monsters on the board. She also has the innate ability of flipping a map tile without triggering its effect so she can help the group avoid some really sticky situations.

While the hunter starts out defenseless, she has plenty of weapons in her deck and is quite deadly with her bow. One of her best cards is Cover of Night which allows her to draw a bunch of scavenge cards for much needed fuel and food. Remember that when you play a card that lets you draw scavenge cards you can pick and draw cards from any deck and even split your draw up between multiple decks.

      Are you able to be an Alpha Playtester and also receive Brass Empire (with KS cards) if you add $40 to the Alpha Playtester pledge?

      I'm also interested in the Alpha Playtester pledge but I'm from Germany.
      I would suggest to add another Alpha Playtester pledge with the incrasing costs.

      I got the cost as low as I could but the prototypes are expensive unfortunately.

      I am interested, but the trouble is, you're only offering it to US / Canada folks, plus it's very expensive. Maybe if it was that price inclusive of both games
