About this project
- Update #5 - Time for a Gameplay Video - Sam takes you on a walk through setup and the first encounter of the print and play.
- Update #11 - We reached our legendary hero achievement unlock! Go vote for your favorite legendary hero here.
The Red Dragon Inn: Battle for Greyport is a cooperative deckbuilding game for 2-4 players that takes place in The Red Dragon Inn universe. You’ll play as one of the heroes from our wildly successful tavern brawling game as you race through the city to save its various landmarks from monster attack. As you fight, you’ll recruit citizens to join your militia, and arm them with powerful items you scavenge for at each location. Each encounter brings you to a new location in the city, and closer to the final battle. Will you and your friends save the day (yet again) or will the city burn?
Each turn, you may play one hero and equip that hero with one item. The heroes that you and the rest of the party play may then fight the active monsters. At the end of your turn, you’ll have the opportunity to recruit new heroes and more powerful items to improve your deck for the next round of fighting. Turns continue until all the monsters are defeated, or until they defeat you.
The game includes a bunch of different scenarios and a wide variety of monsters, including nasty bosses, so that you can have a different experience each time you play. By Kickstarting this game, we hope to expand the available pool of monsters, locations, encounters and more!
Update 3/7/2016 - You can watch a walk through of setup and the first encounter of the print and play on Update #5 - Time for a Gameplay Video.

Or will they crush you under the might of their army?
This campaign has only two Pledge Levels that earn you rewards:
The Game - You will receive a retail copy of The Red Dragon Inn: Battle for Greyport (a $45 value). In addition, you will also receive the magnificent metal turn marker medallion in antiqued gold, exclusive to this Kickstarter. Your copy of the game will include all Stretch Goal and Achievement Bonuses!
The Collector's Edition - You will receive the limited Collector's Edition of The Red Dragon Inn: Battle For Greyport that is only available through this Kickstarter (a $110 value). This includes all of the contents of the retail game plus a pile of Backer Perks (gone into detail further down the page).
Here's a rundown of what is included in both the Pledge Levels:
Not only do backers get a copy of a great game with free domestic (and reduced international) shipping, but they also get some cool perks! Some of these bonuses are exclusive to this Kickstarter campaign, while others will be available later on down the line. To learn about the specific perks, read-on!
Huge d10 Life Trackers - Clocking in at a whopping 27mm, the four custom life trackers provided in the Collector's Edition have a custom design on the 10-face. A limited number of these d10s will be available post campaign for $5 each (plus S&H) through our website while supplies last.
Metal Turn Markers - Brought to you by our good friends at Campaign Coins, these antiqued gold (for Retail and Collector's Edition Backers) and antiqued platinum (for Collector's Edition Backers) are big and hefty and only available through this Kickstarter.
Metal Shield Tokens - Block monster damage with style using real (miniature) shields! Another awesome component for the Collector's Edition brought to us by Campaign Coins. These six double-sided silver shields will be available post campaign as a set for $12 (plus S&H) through our website.
Promo Drinks for The Red Dragon Inn - Fans of RDI have become very familiar with the awesomeness of promo drinks. The Collector's Edition will have 3 of 2017's Promo Drinks. These drinks will only be available at special events or as promotional shop items.
The Battle For Greyport Poster - This poster is exclusive to the Collector's Edition and will feature a high resolution version of the game's cover.
We have a bunch of cool additions we would like to make to the game, and as the campaign continues we are depending on you to help make those additions a possibility! Each improvement we are able to unlock will affect all versions of the game - no need for add-ons or post-campaign pledge adjustment. There are two ways you can help out: you can fund Stretch Goals and participate in reaching Achievement Goals!
Stretch Goals - Thanks to economy of scale, raising more money means we can substantially improve the content into the game. These improvements will provide players with more replayability and options, making the game better as a whole.
Achievement Bonuses - Each Achievement we unlock helps make progress towards Bonuses! The more Achievements we can attain, the more free stuff gets released or added to every copy of the game.
Achievement Goals - If your game group already has a friend picking up Battle for Greyport, then you can still help out by unlocking Achievement Goals! Achievement Goals are all about having fun and sharing the game. They provide you with a great way to get involved with the campaign and improve the game without necessarily pledging your cold hard cash. So get out there, engage and share and we can get a whole bunch of minor improvements! You can earn most of these Achievements by: interacting with us on Facebook, Twitter and Board Game Geek or by using #BattleForGreyport when you share and mention the campaign.

Risks and challenges
This will be our 5th campaign. We have worked hard to make sure that our backers stay well informed and up to date with every step of the process throughout the campaign and afterwards. Beyond unforeseen delays (which have been accounted) we are confident that we will get a high-quality, fun game in your hands by our predicted delivery date.
That being said, we can’t guarantee something crazy won’t happen (like suffering the theft of an entire cargo container of product!), but we can guarantee we will keep you informed if something does.
Not to beat a dead horse, but, Battle for Greyport is our 21st game title and our fifth Kickstarter. This isn’t our first rodeo, we know the risks involved, we have a history of delivering on our promises and we all just want to see this game on store shelves crammed with amazing content!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
