About



Each character has a class that corresponds to a weapon. Weapons are attached by sliding them down to the left side of the character’s card. Gunmen can carry any pistol and short range shotguns. Riflemen can have mid-range rifles and shotguns. Sharpshooters are a special class which can carry only sniper and long range rifles.


Before the game

The aim of the game is to score enough victory points on the HW victory track. To gain a victory point a player needs to obtain a victory token on the map by going to a certain location, killing the opponent or achieving a special goal accordingly to the scenario. Before you start the game, each player chooses teams. Almost every character has a special ability that fits the faction (occultists and pioneers). In the scenario book players will find a detailed description of scenarios, victory conditions and the explanation of which characters can participate and how to construct each town. After that the players can purchase equipment and assign it to each character. 


Starting the game

Players have to play a poker game with HW poker-ability cards to determine the starting player. The winner can choose the starting player. Furthermore, each player can keep 3 out of 5 cards of their final hand. Every character on the map has a starting position marked in the scenario. 


The game

Basically,  everything in HW requires action points. Moving, shooting, reloading, securing and using power-ups require action points, one for each activity. If there are no action points left a character is unable to take any action in this round, unless poker-ability cards or power-ups say otherwise. Moreover, players do not need to spend all action points in turn as this has other strategic implications.

Movement is performed orthogonally, with quarter turns. Base movement range is to be found on the Character Card. Moving once costs one action point.

Shooting and reloading also requires action points. If available action points allow it, each character can shoot twice per turn. Number of bullets in magazine is marked with a bullet token on the weapon card.

Shipping costs here are very rough estimates, as we do not know the final weight of each bundle. Costs here assume sending single parcels to each country, and are more than likely overestimated. We prefer to overestimate shipping costs with room for error, rather than underestimate. If a minimum of 50 backers from a given country pledge, we should be able to lower shipping costs for that country.

  • POLAND ⏤ CA$13~
  • EU (EXCEPT CYPRUS, MALTA) ⏤ CA$25~
  • UK ⏤ CA$30~
  • CYPRUS, MALTA, ALBANIA, BELARUS, BOSNIA & HERZEGOWINA, MONTENEGRO, ICELAND, MACEDONIA, MOLDAVIA, SERBIA ⏤ CA$40~

You may know that the EU and the UK have reached an agreement to set the deadline for Brexit to October 31st.  If the UK Parliament reaches a consensus with the EU about the Brexit it may result in the UK leaving the EU before the agreed date. 

The price is more likely to increase rather than decrease depending on how Brexit happens and what kind of deal (or not) they are going to agree on. how we are going to handle the situation

In any case we will keep you informed with the details and with how we are going to handle the situation. Our goal is to keep the shipping price as low as possible, but we also can't afford bearing a possible major increase in the shipping cost to the UK.

Backing the game is a great way to support the project, but the next best thing you could do is to help us build awareness for the game by following us and sharing (#hardwestboardgame) our posts on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Please subscribe to our newsletter to be the first to know about our future releases.


Risks and challenges

Silver Lynx Games is a new player in the world of board games as it has joined the market in 2019. Our products will be recognised from outstanding quality just like our customer service. We co-publish games with the largest companies on the market, like Playway or CreativeForge Games.

This is our first Kickstarter campaign and we do not expect any delays in production. However, some unforeseen issues may arise during manufacturing and shipping. We estimate that in the worst case scenario, the production might suffer delays of at most 30 days, and shipping & customs may add some extra 15-30 days. As we are experienced with handling large productions we have prepared back-up plans for each step of the project, from production to shipping and final delivery.

By pledging on this project you agree that our responsibility to you is to ship your order as entered into the pledge management system. You are responsible for the import or other duties that may be payable to relevant tax authorities. You also accept that you are fully liable for incorrect shipping details and will risk your pledge being undeliverable or lost in transit. We are unable to ship to PO Boxes. We allow a maximum of 1 delivery location per backer, regardless of number of pledges (copies) ordered. If you do not accept the proposed terms, then please do not pledge on this project; wait for the retail release.

We have a no-question-asked refund policy. If you cancel within 14 days after the Kickstarter campaign ends, we will refund 100% of your pledge. If you cancel 14 days after the end of the campaign or later, we will refund 85% of the the amount you pledged (to cover the irreversible payment processing and Kickstarter fees that are imposed on us).
