About

To survive the long and terrible winter approaching, the dwarfs need to prepare. It’s time to collect gems, build castles and stock enough food.

The fire dragons are sleeping. The giants of winter, lurking.

The fall is precious and it is vital to plan your actions wisely.

MULTILINGUAL SUPPORT

The game's cards have no text at all. As such, with just the rulebook you will be able to play the game in all supported languages.

Inside the game's box the rulebook will be in the English language, but through our website (http://www.vesuviusmedia.com) or the Hive Portal (http://www.hiveinteractive.net) you can download the rulebook for the core game and its expansions in several supported languages like: English, Portuguese, French, German, Greek, Spanish, Italian, Traditional Chinese and more.

Dwar7s World: One Dream, Four Seasons!

Our vision for the world of Dwar7s is to create 4 different stand-alone games one for each of the four Seasons. The games will not require each other, but they will be combined with a background theme and story.

We started our story with Dwar7s Fall back in 2016. A worker-placement, hand management, take-that game. In Dwar7s Fall you are trying to gather your workers and build a nice Kingdom for yourself while at the same gathering provisions because the Winter is coming!

During the last Kickstarter campaign the game grew a lot and many expansions were created. Now, with this campaign we are gathering all of them under the same "roof" inside a really cool big box to fit them all, and we release a brand new expansion for the game!

Below you can see the components for the Dwar7s Fall Colector's Edition.

In Dwar7s Winter (2017), a co-op, hand-building, miniature game, you are faced with a harsh winter. You now have to gather your allies and defend your castle from raging monsters that are trying to overtake it, while at the same time repair damage done to your city from various disasters (Blizzards, Hurricanes, Snow Storms, Volcanoes and more). Although you are all working together to survive the 7 weeks of Winter, at the end of the game, if you managed to survive, the player with the most Victory Points is declared the winner.

Our plans include Dwar7s Spring and Dwar7s Summer to be released in the next couple of years. As soon as we finish all 4 Seasons, we will release the Dwar7s World! Dwar7s World will be a campaign that will have you playing through all 4 Seasons of the game, starting as a young Dwarf Worker gathering Experience Points trying to become a great Dwarven King/Queen by the end of it!

Below you can see the components of the Dwar7s Winter game.

BIG BOX... to fit them all!

You asked and we listened! If you are a returning backer, and you already have all the expansions from previous campaigns, then with this campaign we will be creating a new BIG BOX (the same size as Dwar7s Winter) that can hold the contents of the core game and ALL expansions: Royal Decree Expansion, Empires Expansion and Troll's Bridge Expansion!

By pledging for the Troll's Bridge Pledge, you will receive the new BIG BOX. Inside it you will find a plastic tray, all components of the Troll's Bridge expansion and an updated rulebook.

Below you can see the contents of the Troll's Bridge Pledge.

CAUTION: The Troll's Bridge Pledge is not a standalone game. You are required to have at least the Core game to be able to play. If you do not have the core game, you should select the "Dwarf Collector" Pledge.

Kickstarter Limited Expansion

We have had many questions so we want to clarify that the Troll's Bridge Pledge ($20 for the Troll's Bridge Expansion in Big Box) will be available ONLY through this Kickstarter campaign.

We will NOT have copies available at conventions.

From now on, we will only be producing the Collector's Edition box.

Dwar7s Fall Collector's Edition is scheduled for production in December 2018. Please note that the published product may have differences regarding sizes, quantities, colors and layout because of production limitations and/or adjustments. This includes any type of the game's components (e.g. cards, miniatures, boards, boxes etc).

Card quality is 300gsm, black core with linen finish! Game boards and game boxes are also linen finished.

Here is a sample of the miniatures included in Dwar7s Winter, so that you can see their detail level. Their size ranges from 25mm to 45mm.

The miniatures from Dwar7s Winter are made from hard plastic (PVC 100) so if you want you can paint them and make them look even more awesome, like the following picture:

Last but not least, you can use the miniatures from Dwar7s Winter to play Dwar7s Fall. There are enough miniatures to cover for the Core game and the Royal Decree Expansion.

This promo pack is the same as the one from the Covil Kickstarter Campaign
This promo pack is the same as the one from the Covil Kickstarter Campaign

Promo Pack 01 adds more secret goals and ogre cards to your core game. In addition to that you get special rules that extend the game by using the "Outposts" meeples from the "Covil: The Dark Overlords" game. If you do not have the Covil game you can always substitute these meeples with any other components from other games you may have.

These cards were part of the "Covil: The Dark Overlords" kickstarter campaign, so if you backed that campaign, or you got Covil as an add-on during the Dwar7s Winter campaign, you already have them.

These cards are included in the "Ice King Pledge".

This promo pack is the same as the one from the Dwar7s Winter Kickstarter Campaign.

Promo Pack 02 adds a new variation to the game called "Allies". These are special cards that you can acquire and give you special abilities during the game. You can only have one such ally active at any time so if you acquire a new one you need to replace the existing one.

These cards were art of the Dwar7s Winter Social goals. So if you backed that campaign you already have them.

These cards are included in the "Ice King Pledge".

This add-on is only for backers of the "Troll's Bridge" pledge level who want to receive this component too.

* Final production art might be a little different based on manufacturing limitations.
* Final production art might be a little different based on manufacturing limitations.

This add-on is only for backers of the "Troll's Bridge" level who want to have the complete set of meeples pre-painted. The Collector's and Ice King's Pledge Levels will have all meeples pre-painted.

Also, the Troll's Bridge Pledge will also have its 3 new meeples pre-painted.

You can download the solo variation "Trials of the Half-Blood King" from the Hive Portal following the URL below:

These three packs have enough sleeves to cover the Collector's Edition and all Stretch Goals. The Sleeves are of Standard Quality (40-50 microns), not Premium (usually 80-90 microns).

If you want Sleeves for Dwar7s Winter, add another $7 and there will be more than enough for the Kickstarter Edition of the game game and the promo packs.

For more information about our "Covil: The Dark Overlords" game, please visit our Kickstarter campaign page using the link below:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/vesuviusmedia/covil-the-dark-overlords

We want to thank all of the backers who have been supporting us and helping us create and deliver great games.

For that, in collaboration with Hive (the Pledge Manager we are using), we are launching a new Loyalty Program that will reward returning backers.

From now on, whenever you select a pledge that has the Vesuvius Media Loyalty Credit item in it, you will receive a $5 Loyalty Credit for the next campaign to be used for add-ons. 

This extra credit will be visible during the checkout process of the Hive Pledge Manager and you will be able to use it to buy add-ons (it can not be used for a main pledge nor for shipping costs).

For our returning backers who have supported us in the following previous campaign:

- Dwar7s Fall
     - Covil: The Dark Overlords
     - Dwar7s Winter

the Loyalty Program will work like this:

- If you have backed at least 2 (which means either two or all three) of our previous campaigns, then you will get a $10 Loyalty Credit.

- If you have backed only one of our previous campaigns, then you will get a $5 Loyalty Credit.

Keep in mind that the Loyalty Credit is per campaign and not per game. This means that if you backed us only in one campaign, even if you added all three games in a bundle, you will receive $5 Credit. We do this to be fair to backers that have paid more shipping costs by supporting us in multiple campaigns.

This Loyalty Credit can be used for add-ons in the new Troll's Bridge campaign or you can also choose to leave it inside your Hive account (our Pledge Manager) to be used in our future campaigns!

Starting with this campaign and moving forward, our goal is to increase your credit by $5 for future campaigns. For example, if you have backed all three campaigns so far, you start with $10 for this one. If you do not use the Loyalty Credit in this campaign and you back this campaign at an eligible Reward Pledge level, then you will have $15 for the next one. And so on.

To be eligible for the Loyalty Credit, you must pledge for a reward ($20 or more) during this campaign. Late-pledges and pledges of $1 will not qualify for any type of Loyalty Credit (credit from past campaigns or credit for future campaigns).

We will charge shipping after the Kickstarter concludes based on the actual costs incurred to ship. We will collect this via our pledge manager after the campaign ends. Shipping costs vary widely based on where you will receive your reward. Unfortunately, a one-size-fits-all price isn't manageable.

We will pay to ship your rewards to our international distribution centers. Based on your delivery address, we will either ship to you from our hub in the UK, Germany, China, Australia, Canada, or the USA.

The following is a list of rough estimates for shipping of the Dwar7s Fall Collector's pledge. Please keep in mind that these are just estimates, and costs may rise based on weight increases from unlocked stretch goals and any optional add-ons you choose. All prices are listed in US dollars.

Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico and other remote states are not part of the "US" category. They are included in the "Rest of the world" one.

PICK UP LOCATIONS

If you happen to be close to any of the following locations, then you can choose the "Pick up" pledge and not pay shipping costs!

Risks and challenges

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BEFORE PLEDGING TO THIS CAMPAIGN.

PRODUCTION RISKS

Even though we do our best to ensure a quality product and a timely production, there is always the risk of delays. Supplier shortage, holiday traffic and weather conditions are just a few of the reasons a production could be delayed. Vesuvius Media Ltd should not be held responsible for delays caused by third parties. In addition, some of the items shown might differ from the final product due to supplier/manufacturer error.

MISSING/DAMAGED ITEMS

When dealing with a large number of orders, there is always a chance that errors will occur. If after you receive your order, you find that there are items missing, please contact us at support [at] vesuviusmedia.com and we will send you the missing items as soon as possible.

If your package arrives damaged, please take a few photos of all damaged items and email them to us at boardgames [at] vesuviusmedia.com. We will send you replacements for the damaged items as soon as possible. The games shipped through this campaign will be sent out in a larger and stronger package, which will better protect the contents against damage.

DELIVERY DATE

Our current estimation for delivery is April 2018. We want your orders to be delivered on time as much as you do; however, history has shown that despite the best laid plans there is always a chance of delay.

UNDELIVERED ITEMS

If a package is not delivered due to a backer's fault (wrong address given, backer didn't claim the delivered package from their post office, etc), the backer may be requested to pay additional shipping fees for the item to be sent out again.

DELIVERY ADDRESS

As soon as this campaign is over, you will be requested to complete a survey through which you can let us know which items you have ordered as well as where you would like us to ship your order. Keep in mind that your order may be shipped sooner or later than the estimated delivery date. Please give us an address that will surely not change (If for example you think that you may be moving to a new house around April, please give us the address of a friend or relative to ensure a successful delivery).

SHIPPING

Please read the Shipping section above.

ORDER FULFILLMENT

Please note that your order may be delivered in multiple packages. This is done due to weight limitations for group shipments. Even though the items you ordered will be shipped at the same time, there is always a chance they will arrive to you several days apart. This may occur due to each country's postal service sort-and-dispatch system.

UPDATES

Through this campaign you may receive updates on Vesuvius Media's other upcoming projects. Such updates will be rare.

BY PLACING A PLEDGE ON THIS CAMPAIGN, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTAND AND ACCEPT THE RISKS & CHALLENGES STATED IN THIS SECTION.

Thank you very much,

Vesuvius Media Ltd.
