Past Question & Answer Evenings with the Developers:
We don’t like complicated Kickstarters, so we’ve made this one as simple as possible. There is just one pledge level—which also gives you access to all of the fantastic stretch goals we’ll be unlocking as the campaign goes on!
The best bit is that your pledge will include every stretch goal that gets unlocked during the campaign! So the more people who support the project, the more goals get unlocked, the more value we can squeeze in for all you awesome backers, and the bigger the box we're going to need!
Optional purchases are also available to backers during the campaign. Simply increase your pledge amount by the amount stated. After the Kickstarter campaign ends, you will be able to select your options via our pledge management system.
The Malformations of G expansion contains four highly detailed models for the extra mutations of Dr William Birkin, along with rules and behaviour cards for each of these boss models. Also included are updated scenarios and tiles for the core game and The B-Files expansion, allowing players to encounter these deadly enemies as part of their games—plus a brand-new scenario for the final showdown with the massive Birkin Stage 5 mutation!
The Retro Pack is for the old-school Resident Evil™ fans out there, recreating the artwork and style for each of the item, enemy, and character cards to appear as they did in the classic video game. It also includes a series of additional iconic tiles and scenario items to customize your play experience. If you’re a series veteran who played the game the first time around and want to indulge your nostalgia for the good old days, then this expansion is definitely for you!
You can also purchase multiple Survivor Pledges by increasing your pledge amount by +£70 per pledge. NOTE: There is no Early Bird discount on these additional pledges. The 'Extra Survivor Pledge' gets you an additional copy of the Core Game, B-Files Expansion Set, and Kickstarter Exclusive Leon Alt. Model with Applicable Stretch Goals.
The Kickstarter Exclusive Terrain Pack upgrades several of the cardboard tokens in the game with finely detailed sculpts, so you can immerse yourself even more fully during your games. This includes the following:
- 10x 3D Corpse Markers
- 5x Ink Ribbons
- 2x Typewriters
- 2x Item Boxes
Lurking under the streets of Raccoon City are dark and foreboding sewers, teeming with undead fiends… but that’s not all! An even more ferocious and powerful creature waits in the depths, easily capable of tearing any survivor to pieces if they stray too close. The Giant Alligator Expansion introduces this fearsome adversary into your games of Resident Evil™ 2: The Board Game as a new Boss Monster for the survivors to battle their way past. This expansion includes the finely detailed model of this iconic foe and rules for the special scenario in which it is encountered, along with a new Boss Behaviour Deck, unique item cards, and additional game tiles.
The 4th Survivor Expansion includes finely detailed models for HUNK and fan favourite TOFU, as well as a new scenario, additional game boards and item cards allowing you to play 4th Survivor as part of your games of Resident Evil 2™ - The Board Game.
Additionally, 4th Survivor also includes an extra three scenarios from Extreme Battle Mode, as well as cards for the deadly anti-virus bombs scattered throughout the RPD building. Are you ready to face the ultimate Resident Evil 2™ challenge? Good luck – you’ll need it!
The Murder from Above Expansion is an optional Kickstarter Exclusive for our dedicated backers. It includes a finely detailed model for the Giant Moth, as well as four Zombie Crow models. This expansion also includes the rules for including the Giant Moth Mini-Boss in your games, as well as new enemy models and optional rules for Zombie Crows as an enemy model rather than an event from the Tension Deck.
Resident Evil™ 2: The Board Game combines intense resource management and an innovative Tension Deck mechanic to create an enthralling experience for veterans and new players alike. With world-class miniatures that are faithful to the original in every detail, this game will capture the essence of the classic genre-defining Resident Evil™ 2 video game.
To survive the nightmare, players must explore dangerous and foreboding places for clues, equipment, and weapons that are critical to staying alive. Unusual sounds or barely glimpsed movement could hint at disaster. The Tension Deck forces players to carefully consider traveling through each area—and whether they can afford to avoid it altogether.
With precious few bullets and recovery items, every step into the unknown presents a difficult decision. Do you dare explore that darkened room? Can you afford to face your enemies head-on? Putting a bullet into an enemy isn't always the only way to survive!
Resident Evil™ 2: The Board Game is a fully cooperative experience. If even a single character dies, the scenario is lost, meaning players must work together in order to succeed. Each character has distinct special rules based on their personality and background which must be used to aid their allies over the course of the game.
Whilst players can see some enemies and know how to plan ahead, what lurks behind each door is completely unknown. Remember, if one character dies, then it's game over for everyone, so pay careful attention to each shadowy corner! What will you do if a player is ambushed by a horde of zombies?
As players make their way through each location, they must consider speed as well as strategy. Leaving doors open provides a much quicker path for you and your allies—but also for your enemies. If you hear the screams of another survivor echoing through the corridors, do you still play methodically and carefully secure each area behind you, or do you risk leaving rooms vulnerable and rush to aid your embattled friend?
Shipping will be charged after the Kickstarter finishes based on actual costs incurred to ship and is collected via our pledge manager system. This allows us to charge fairly for all backers and avoid a 'one size fits all' mentality to shipping.

- United Kingdom (UK and Rest of the World backers)
- USA (US backers)
- Canada (Canada backers)

By pledging on this Kickstarter you acknowledge that the final look and contents of the pledges may change and differ from what is presented at the start of the campaign.
This is our third Kickstarter project, the previous projects being Guild Ball and Dark Souls™: The Board Game. Those titles achieved award-winning success both on Kickstarter and in retail.
We are fully aware of potential delays that may happen with products that are produced in China, the common ones being delays in production, shipping, and customs.
We have estimated the delivery for September 2018, but please understand this is only an estimate. Due to the global logistics involved in shipping, some regions may receive their pledges sooner than others.
We have prepared as much as possible with our production for a successful Kickstarter; however, we will refund pledges if for some unforeseen reason the game cannot be delivered at all.
Refunds may be given within 60 days of the campaign ending, including fees. After that time, refunds may be given minus the Kickstarter and payment processing fees, as we will not be able to claim those back after 60 days.
We are unable to issue refunds once we have begun the packaging and shipment stages of the project (around 6–8 weeks before the actual shipping date).
Refunds within 60 days are reversed via Stripe to your credit/debit card. Refunds after 60 days of the campaign ending are processed via PayPal only.
This is a GBP Kickstarter and refunds will be processed in GBP for the amount received, excluding any applicable fees dependent on the day on which the refund is processed as detailed above.
