Raid Boss is a 1-4 player tabletop battle puzzle designed like a strategy RPG. It keeps all of the cooperative teamwork, combos, and collaboration, but none of the endless grinding! 

This world, ruled by Tyr, has become warped and embattled. The shifting Void, along with antagonism from fellow Creators, Berdea, Reika, and Akeri, has left this universe in a state of turmoil. Emergent heroes, the Incarnates, struggle to gain autonomy in this reality, rallying forces and overturning the destructive whim of their Creators. 

 You control a Hero with a mechanically distinct and heavily themed set of abilities. Each Hero has an Assist that can be used at ANY time -- including other players’ turns! Gather your team to face off against stalwart, quirky, and skill-testing Bosses that come equipped with their own special deck of cards. 

There are currently 12 playable Heroes and 6 Bosses to challenge, each lavishly illustrated, giving you a wealth of content and variety of challenges.

Raid Boss has flexibility that allows you to devise incredibly clever skill sequences. Game-ending threats soon become trivial as you experiment and gain experience, allowing you to tackle devious and puzzle-like advanced Bosses.

Playthrough - One Shot RPG

 Rulebook (in progress) 

Every backer is important to us, regardless of location, but the reality is that shipping is very expensive and is a cost we all need to share. We always work at minimizing the cost of shipping as much as possible and will be providing a substantial shipping discount to ALL backers regardless of region. We will charge shipping after the campaign ends through our pledge manager.  We've done our best to streamline and simplify the shipping for this campaign as much as possible and will be offering the best possible prices we can:     

We love playing together as a community, which means we also love to support local gaming stores. If you're a brick & mortar retailer, we can offer:

  • 5 or more copies of the game at 50% of MSRP.
  • A free demonstration copy, for maximum in-store mayhem and chaos.
  • Discounted shipping in the US.

Retail pledges will receive the Kickstarter version of the game with all unlocked stretch goals included.

Retail pledges must:

  • Verify they are a brick & mortar store. (No online retailers or bulk-discount programs.)
  • Acknowledge that fulfillment for the retail tier will be congruent with fulfillment for individual backers.

To get involved, please back at the retailer pledge tier then email raidbossgame@gmail.com to verify your store and finalize full payment & delivery.

Risks and challenges

This is our first board game campaign but we are collaborating with GameOn Tabletop to manage our fulfillment as well as our late pledge.

- The vast majority of art assets are complete and ready for final printing.
- We are working with an amazing manufacturer with extensive experience in board game production.

We are confident that we will be able to deliver Raid Boss to you on time, and of the highest possible quality. Moreover, we will have regular updates on the progress of the project, and we promise to read every single comment and be ready to answer any questions from our backers.

Thank you for your amazing support!
