 "If you like theme, games with a high level of social interaction, and capturing violent galactic beings in crystals (I love all of these things), then you’ll agree with me when I say this is a game that really stands as an example of a Kickstarter game gone right."

— Dice Temple

"If you like games like Munchkin, Dungeon Run, or Cosmic Encounter because of the alliance mechanic, you might want to check this out, because this really does a good job of taking those games' mechanics and making them its own."  

— Superfly Circus

What is Zoneplex?

Zoneplex is a board game (successfully funded on Kickstarter on Feb. 2012) that combines a tile-laying/exploration mechanism, a collaborative battle system, and a zone control system to create an intriguing adventure deep within an alien structure.

What is up with this expansion?

This expansion streamlines gameplay for the 3-5 player game and gives the players more control with new game tiles and rules. The expansion also adds a more casual euro-style 1-2 player challenge mode which takes about 15 minutes to play. 

Why the low funding amount?

We want to get this out there no matter what. For us this is a completion/closure to the insane adventure and tribulation we went through with releasing the original Zoneplex board-game. So we chose a lucky 333, representing the Zoneplex pyramid ▲! 

What tribulations you ask? Lots of hours and personal financial investments went into the base Zoneplex game. All the proceeds for this expansion will get the expansion out to would-be adventurers (plus the base game if one chooses the $60 reward). All extra monies that we get will help us climb out of the miscalculated shipping-chasm we experienced previously. Honestly, we'll never break even but that's not what is important. The important thing for us is putting something unique in the world and presenting a new and weird universe in our pixel/zombie-dominated landscape.

Risks and challenges

We've successfully delivered the Zoneplex board-game that contained a ton of components printed in Germany. This expansion is a fraction of the previous challenge which had us battling underestimated shipping costs and printing delays as we were getting everything together. We made it through that so know that this project is in good weathered hands.

We also have experience in releasing physical media and shipping it since the mid 90s in the independent music world. The risks that may occur now would be printing delays but we are planning ahead to avoid anything like that happening.

    ▲ FEAST OF THE ZONEPLEX + ABOVE ▲
    The creators of Zoneplex & Niklas will show you (and a friend) around Göteborg, Sweden and also take you on a trip to visit an old fort or two. We will eat Czech fried cheese, game Zoneplex and Chaos In The Old World while wearing the official Zoneplex robes (at least until it gets too hot). We'll be your tour-guides for 2 days. YOU MUST PROVIDE YOUR OWN AIRFARE AND ACCOMMODATION but we will help advise.

    Normally we find these sort of higher backing levels silly, but figured we may as well put it out there. To be honest, we underestimated shipping costs during our last Kickstarter campaign and paid a formidable chunk out of pocket, so any extra bit helps us get out of the black hole we've been partially submerged in. You never know!
