Players are talking about DUNGEON DEGENERATES: HAND OF DOOM!
"The game is beautiful, well-balanced, gritty, difficult & Metal as hell. In a word, perfect.” - Josh Perldeiner
“A wonderful blend of weird & gross in the best possible way. Every time a new monster was revealed me & fellow players would sit & pass the card around to just marvel at the bizarre beast we were about to battle. Something that really amazes me about the art is for how dark & dirty the world is the bright colors just add to it & give the game some major table presence. Quite simply put the game is a treat to look at and I just want more of it.” - Andy Vanderbilt
“I am happy to have Dungeon Degenerates in my collection. It provides an exciting & outlandish experience, & scales perfectly well, regardless of the number of players. The sandbox that is the Wurstreich is vast & only limited to the edges of the board. Contrary to what the title suggests, when you survive your first mission, you'll really feel like a hero. But don't gloat over your accomplishments! Keep playing! Because Dungeon Degenerates doesn't care. As soon as you get a smile on your face, the game will happily kick you in the teeth.” - Mike Slabon

Our special Kickstarter exclusive for this campaign is the Plaguefinder General pewter miniature! This mini is available in some of the pledge levels, and as an add-on. Feel free to purchase as many as you'd like, this mini will never be available again after this campaign!
Thank you backers for helping us achieve funding for our project in just five days! Now let's start stretching and see how big we can build this!
Our initial campaign goal to produce DUNGEON DEGENERATES: MEAN STREETS is just the beginning! We have a whole bunch of additional content to unlock, including upgrades to everyone's MEAN STREETS box as well as optional add-ons to further enhance game play!
All of the All-in bundles for this campaign assume that we will unlock all nine of these stretch goals. And there's the possibility that we go even higher than that! We've got other ideas for possible additional stretch goals... we'll see when we get there!
If you would like to purchase additional items to enhance your DUNGEON DEGENERATES gameplay experience, simply increase your pledge amount by the total of the add-ons you'd like. After the Kickstarter campaign is over, you'll have access to our Backerkit where you can select the specific add-ons you would like! All of our DUNGEON DEGENERATES add-ons are being offered at 10% off retail during this Kickstarter campaign!
Thanks to our backers for unlocking our first stretch goal: the City Scum Booster Pack!
Please note: some of our pledge levels will automatically receive this miniature. Feel free to add-on as many exclusive minis as you'd like. This will be the only time this mini is available.
Shipping charges will be processed through our Backerkit after the Kickstarter campaign is over. Backers in the USA will have their rewards shipped via USPS priority mail direct from GOBLINKO. Canadian backers will be fulfilled by Board Game Bliss. Other international backers will have their rewards shipped from Happyshops in Germany, which means this project is EU Friendly!
Sean & Katie Äaberg created Goblinko in 1999 because we were approaching the year 2000 & there wasn’t a public vision of the Future, the Country or Anything! Almost 20 years have passed & there still isn’t a public vision of anything! Things have gotten worse! Sorry World - That’s a Mandate. Born in the fertile, messy, smelly land between Oakland’s Punk & Art scenes - Goblinko had to put one foot in the funk & soul of Old Oakland & the other foot into the Future! We have established our American, street-level, trash-culture roots of hot dogs, comic books, bubblegum & blue jeans & we will expand until you cannot think of America without thinking of Goblinko! Every one of our products is created using a Frankenstein’s Monster approach - We dig up the forgotten cadavers of America’s past, cut out the good bits & then stitch them together - Apply forgotten secrets & shock them to life! Every Goblinko product is a seed of a better world. Better because it is built to last - built for relevance - built for survival - built for buttermilk - built for speed - built for living the chaos - built for you! Everything else sucks! Go Goblinko!
Risks and challenges
Goblinko is a full service art & design studio. We have all the skills necessary to produce a project of this scale. Our team is detail oriented & deadline focused. Our first Kickstarter, for DUNGEON DEGENERATES: HAND OF DOOM, brought the finished product to our backers slightly behind schedule, but within what we consider an acceptable margin of delay. Lessons learned on that project & more conservative production time estimates this time around all but guarantee we will deliver on time. We understand the complexities of taking on a project of this scale & have budgeted enough time into our project timeline to complete all necessary tasks & our conservative estimates allow for errors to be caught & corrected without causing project delays. Our estimated date of delivery is April 2019.
Of course, with any project of this scale, sometimes things go wrong. We believe in project transparency, & keeping our backers updated with the project no matter what. If something does happen that causes a delay with the project, we will notify backers immediately. Possible delays could include:
- A problem at the factory could delay printing
- We could face unforeseen shipping issues
Also, due to shipping logistics, backers from different parts of the world may receive their packages at different dates than others.
- All gone!
