About this project
They're Coming is a 2-player game that takes just under 45 minutes to play and is set in the days following an apocalyptic zombie event. You will take on the role of Survivors on your turn and try to navigate the zombie hordes they throw at you. On your opponent's turn you will become the zombie overlord and utilize your deck of undead in order to prevent your opponent's Survivors from reaching the Rescue Station before your own Survivors do.
The game includes art from:
In the box: 5 Survivors, 20 Supply Cards, 5 Locations, 20 Zombie Cards, Rulebook.
A brief setup period takes place before the game begins, during this time both players will create a path from the opponent's starting position to the Rescue Station. These cards will have information about how many zombie cards may be encountered there as well as what rewards might be attained by clearing and scavenging the Location.
Players will have to balance speed with preparation. Get to the Rescue Station as fast as possible and lose people along the way? Or take it slow and stockpile weapons and get as many Survivors as you can to the station?
If you only have one pack of They're Coming cards available you can still play a "Single-Pack" style game. In this instance one player will be the Survivors only and one the Zombies only. The Survivor player wins if they get at least 3 of their group to the Rescue Station uninfected. The Zombie player wins if they kill or infect 3 or more Survivors.
Nearly two years have been spent working toward this point and a lot of our own personal money has already been put into artwork, layouts, etc. The game is ready for primetime and that's where all of you come in. The Kickstarter will fund any "In Progress" artwork as well as pay for the printing of the game itself and all non-game rewards.
For a $65 pledge you'll get one of these images as a print, signed and numbered by the artist:

Risks and challenges
"To achieve things, 2 things are needed: a plan, and not quite enough time." - Leonard Bernstein
The main risks will come from fulfilling the poster and t-shirt orders as they are a far more unknown factor than the timing for the cards themselves to be printed. We've set up an expected ship date for some time in November 2013 to give ourselves a cushion for getting everything together and out the door. That being said anything can happen from print delays with the cards themselves to shipping issues.
Fortunately, we have a UPS account we can utilize on top of having easy access to the USPS and FedEx if needed. The faster the funding goal is reached the sooner we can get the last cards tweaked and everything off to the printers. Once funding is successful we'll start getting the print templates together for the various stretch goal rewards and try to make everything a nice fluid process.
We have a big network of friends and family who will help to get everything out the door if we get hit by a train. Otherwise, once this is all said and done, all waking time we have will be dedicated to making sure everyone gets their goods!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
