Here you will find the most important updates cataloged for your viewing pleasure. If you want to get more in-depth information about the campaign, this is a great place to start!
- Update #2 - Amundyr Print and Play! You can also skip the update and go directly to the P&P here.
- Update #3 - Wicked Wench vote is live! Will the Demon or the Gorgon be serving drinks up to our villains? You decide right here.
You and your wicked companions have spent the day pillaging the countryside and "dealing" with meddlesome adventurers. It’s about time you kicked back with a pint at the evil equivalent of The Red Dragon Inn - The Black Dragon Depths, a nefarious tavern hidden deep in the catacombs below Greyport. No more heroes this time. Now you get to play as the bad guys!
The Red Dragon Inn 6: Villains is the next stand-alone expansion to The Red Dragon Inn series of games. In this game you and up to 3 of your friends will be playing as evil villains celebrating the defeat of your archenemies at a wild fantasy party. You will gamble, brawl and drink the night away as you compete to be the last villain standing at the end of the night.
Best of all, these four new characters are completely compatible with all of the previous sets of the game!
If this is your first time joining us, we suggest you check out our introduction to The Red Dragon Inn series of games here:
For the rest of you, welcome back to the tavern!
Thanks in large part to Kickstarter, we have published some absolutely awesome improvements to the RDI series. We’ve been able to introduce new game modes like the Sea Event Deck from RDI4, a TON of new characters, a spin-off cooperative deckbuilding game and even a massive box of storage awesome. But so far, players have only gotten to play as the heroes of the RDI world, so we felt it was about time to bring you the villains!
In addition to four new villains who bring their own unique twists to the game, we are excited about introducing three new game modes that your support of this Kickstarter will make possible:
Dungeon Events - We have a brand new 20-card Dungeon Event deck that will let you take the party deep down into the depths of the adventure. Have a pint at the sinister underground tavern, The Black Dragon Depths and be ready to fight off adventurer attacks or even ransack the leftover loot the heroes never got to. Enjoy a series of ruthless events that will have you at each others' throats before the night is through!
Two-Headed Dragon - What’s the best thing about a bar fight? When you have a buddy watching your back! We are also introducing a new game mode that lets you pair up with a friend to take on the party as a team. Play as a pair heroes versus a duo of villains, or any combination of existing characters in exciting 2v2, 2v2v2 and 2v2v2v2 matchups!
Boss Mode - Typically when the big bad guy shows up, the entire party has to rally together to defeat them! Boss Mode will enable 2-4 players to team up against one of the four villains introduced in RDI6. But watch out, because the villain will also get extra cards giving them the firepower to take on the entire party! Will the heroes be victorious and beat back their vile foe, or will our wicked villain totally wipe the party?!?
Each of these new game modes will require brand new components never before seen in the series, and will be made possible with stretch goals. The more money we can raise during the campaign, the more content we can put into the box!
Achievement Drinks are special foil promo drink cards you can help us unlock by reaching certain social media goals such as liking us on Facebook, following us on Twitter or engaging with us on BoardGameGeek.com. Every 3 Achievements we accomplish will unlock a drink for all backer rewards! We have 4 exciting, villainous promo drinks to unlock, will we get them all?
Back in 2015 we ran a campaign to create a big box of storage awesomeness! Over 2K backers and multiple thousands of retail orders later we know that A LOT of you have copies of RDI5 and most of you are probably going to get RDI6 and shove everything into the swanky new big box. So why pay for a box and packaging you’re just going to throw away anyway?
We are excited to offer a variant pledge level for both the basic edition and the collector’s edition reward levels! This ECO Edition of the game will come to you with minimal, basic packaging, doing away with the pricey and bulkier retail packaging.
Why is this a good thing? Well, first off it saves you some cold hard cash cause we don’t have to charge you for manufacturing packaging for your copy of the game! Perhaps even cooler than that is you also help reduce the total amount of waste material your friendly local recycler or landfill will have to deal with.
**Update #7 includes instructions for backers in Australia, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea or Taiwan to place their pledge with an improved shipping fee!**
Where possible, we have created partnerships with local fulfillment centers to help reduce customs fees and VAT as well as shipping prices. We are excited to announce that we have made such partnerships in Canada and the European Union, meaning we can offer both reasonable shipping rates as well as customs and VAT free delivery for international backers in these regions!
Furthermore, we are applying a $15 shipping credit across the board, further reducing shipping fees. For example, it costs us $35 freight, shipping and handling to get the game to a backer in Germany VAT free. After applying the $15 credit, that German backer will only have to pay $20 shipping for the game!
- Backers in the following countries should expect to pay no additional customs or VAT fees: United States, Australia, Canada, United Kingdom, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden.
If you have some friends who want to get in on this Kickstarter together, then you are welcome to pledge for additional copies and only have to pay the shipping fee once! Backers may add at most 2 additional copies of the game to their pledge (for a maximum of 3 copies). These additional copies may be of any version of the game and the amount you will need to add to your pledge is the same as their pledge level ($40 Basic, $35 ECO-Basic, $125 Collector’s or $120 ECO-Collector’s). To add more copies of the game to your pledge rewards you must manually increase your pledge total by clicking the blue “Manage” button next to your pledge. We will be sending out surveys to confirm version quantities when we are close to delivery.
If you wish to pledge for more than 3 copies of the game, please contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll see what we can do.

Risks and challenges
While we are extremely confident in our ability to deliver an excellent product on time, here's a list of things you should know that could possibly go wrong:
1. Development Delay: While the game is in beta and open playtesting at this point, we may have to crunch it a little longer if a problem or exploit arises. Furthermore, our artists are human and human stuff may come up that knocks them off schedule.
2. Manufacturing Delay: We have worked with our manufacturer for a very long time now. We have a great relationship with them and they work hard to get us our stuff on schedule. However, unforeseen problems can arise!
3. Shipping Delay: Sometimes your stuff just goes missing and we have to print everything all over again. True story: an entire shipping container of our games was stolen back in July of 2012. Yeah, you can't really account for that one.
4. Extraterrestrials could invade and enslave us to their will, and they may not be tabletop gamers.
The good news is that this is not our first rodeo by a LONG shot. We have launched and delivered on multiple campaigns much to the satisfaction of our backers. We have padded our promised delivery date with all of the realistic delays in mind so you can confidently expect your game to arrive by our suggested delivery date.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
