About

Expedition: The Roleplaying Card Game is a cooperative adventure game that combines the best of tabletop RPGs and video games. It uses cards, a d20, and an free companion app to get you straight into epic adventures with friends and family - even if you've never played an RPG before.

Expedition contains endless depth: it's fully open source with customizable cards and 100+ community-created quests. We even have a GM mode to provide veteran gamers a more traditional Game Master led experience. 

Expedition: The Future is the second expansion to Expedition: The Roleplaying Card Game, expanding the universe into science fiction with new quests, abilities, enemies, and skills!

It requires a copy of Expedition and The Horror to play - if you don’t have Expedition yet, you can pick up a copy of the new Deluxe Edition, which includes Expedition, both expansions, new and improved tracker clips, art-enabled enemy cards, and even more storage.

Thanks to our incredible community, we’ve funded both Expedition (300% funded) and Expedition: The Horror (900% funded) on Kickstarter.

Our players are constantly creating new quests and coding new features into our free and open-source companion app, so Expedition is always improving. In the past year alone, we’ve added online multiplayer, offline support, an infinite combat music engine and quest saving. Now you can pause and return to epic adventures with your friends, at home or across the world!

The Future introduces a new skill check mechanic, along with new enemies, abilities, and loot cards inspired by science fiction.

Skills allow for more roleplaying depth and add an extra layer to combat strategy. Now, when you level up, you can choose to learn or level up a Skill, which helps you do better at checks both in combat and in the story. You also gain a powerful, single-use ability to help you get out of a tight spot.

Tech abilities add a new combat style. You can use Tech with loot to help your team and get the best of your enemies, unlocking powerful synergies with the existing abilities.

Synth enemies are mechanized creatures that you will encounter in many future quests. From the lowly Repulsor Probe to the heavily-armored and ever-hungry Cyclonic Digger, the selection of new enemies offer loads of exciting new storytelling directions.

While this expansion is focused around Sci-Fi, its mechanics can be used for stories of all genres! Expedition is a template to help our creators in imagining their next great adventure. These enemies, skills, and abilities can be used in any setting, from low fantasy epics to steampunk comedies to space operas.

Alongside The Future, we’re also introducing Expedition: Deluxe Edition! This new package includes Expedition, Expedition: The Horror, and Expedition: The Future -- allowing for a complete collection in one convenient box.

We also took your feedback to heart. We added art to all our previous enemy cards, upgraded the cardstock quality and designed new custom clips that protect the cards. We also improved the balance on numerous base and Horror cards, and even upgraded the box, which now has space to fit 366 sleeved card! (using standard thin sleeves)

The Deluxe Edition a great starting point if you're new to Expedition and a solid upgrade if you're already a fan.

Shipping & Pledge Manager

Shipping is $5 US / $8 International for The Future, $10 US / $20 International for the Deluxe Edition and $15 US / $30 International for the Multiplayer Bundle. Additional copies can be added on at no extra shipping charge!

All shipping is customs-friendly for our EU, Australia and Canada backers.

Delivery dates are for US backers - international shipments may take longer. This will be our third Kickstarter working with ShipNaked, so we look forward to another smooth delivery - our last project, The Horror, even delivered ahead of schedule!

We'll be using the BackerKit Pledge Manager for our post-campaign surveys; look for them about two weeks after the end of the campaign, once funds have closed.

Manufacturing

This will be our third Kickstarter working with AdMagic, and we’ve been working with them since July to prepare materials. We’ve also listened closely to your feedback from previous runs and made numerous improvements. Specifically, we’ve designed new custom clips for Expedition that are both more thematic and easier on cards, we’re using a thicker, more durable cardstock, and color matching will be improved by manufacturing all three sets at the same time for the Deluxe Edition.

Risks and challenges

This is our third Kickstarter with Expedition - we'll be using the same manufacturer and fulfillment company as before, but with further improvements to the game (including better card stock and custom clips). Because we're designing custom clips, manufacturing will take longer than it has in the past - but we've worked with our team to account for this in our timelines. We even started working on clips' mold before the Kickstarter launched!

On a higher level, the international trade climate is constantly changing, and a sudden new tariff may impact our campaign. We're closely monitoring the situation, but if this happens, we will the situation discuss with our backers to decide the best route to proceed.
