Dwar7s Spring is a worker placement, engine building game for 2-4 players.

Now that the winter is over, and you have successfully defended your kingdom, it is time to expand your empire by exploring the world and building settlements.

Beware! Monsters are lurking around every corner. You will need to enlist mighty heroes to empower your ranks and defeat the monsters.

Last but not least, you will need to find rare dragon eggs, hatch them, and train your dragons to become formidable companions.

With the help of an army of heroes, you will save the faeries and use their magic to explore the world and build a mighty empire!

Spring is upon us! As the flowers blossom, empires will rise!

Dwar7s Spring is language independent. The game's cards have no text. 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 English. However, through our website (http://www.vesuviusmedia.com) or the Hive Portal (http://www.hiveinteractive.net) you will be able to download the rulebook for the core game and its expansions in several supported languages (eg. English, Portuguese, French, German, Greek, Spanish, Italian, and more).

With your support we have unlocked both the Alchemist and the Dragon classes! These miniatures are added to the Enchanted Forest and the Elven Uprising expansions!

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 to be played, but story develops through the seasons. 

We started our story with Dwar7s Fall (2016), which is a worker-placement, hand management game with take-that. In Dwar7s Fall you are a dwarf, trying to build your kingdom, while at the same time gathering provisions because the winter is coming!

In Dwar7s Winter (2018), a semi co-op, hand-building, miniature game, you are faced with a harsh winter and need to work with your fellow dwarfs to survive. You have to gather your allies and defend your castle from raging monsters that are trying to overtake it. At the same time, you need to repair damage done to your city by various disasters (blizzards, hurricanes, snow storms, volcanoes and more). Although you are working together to survive the 7 weeks of winter, at the end of the game (if you manage to survive!), the player with the most victory points is declared the winner.

After Dwar7s Spring (2019), our plans include Dwar7s Summer, to be released next year. As soon as we finish all 4 seasons, we will release Dwar7s World! Dwar7s World will be a campaign where you play through all 4 seasons. Starting in the fall as a young Dwarf Worker, you will gather experience points as you play through the seasons and strive to become a great Dwarven King/Queen by the end of summer!

Components are from the Up your Game collection! These components can also be used with many other boardgames to enhance your experience!
If you missed the Dwar7s Winter Kickstarter campaign, this is your chance to get the expansion! Keep in mind that the Legendary Expansion is FULLY compatible with Dwar7s Spring too! This add-on includes the cards from the "Legendary Conversion Pack".
* If you missed the Dwar7s Winter Kickstarter, this add-on gets you everything from the Winter Season, including the "Legendary Conversion Pack" shown below.
* If you already have the Kickstarter Edition of Dwar7s Winter, you need this pack to use the monsters and the classes from the Legendary Expansion with Dwar7s Spring.
* This set of Dwarfs minis is exactly the same as the one included with Dwar7s Winter. Dwar7s Spring comes with punchboard tokens for your dwarfs. If you have the Dwar7s Winter game, then you can use that set to play Spring, or you can purchase a 2nd set with this add-on.
These sleeves work with ALL seasons and editions of the Dwar7s Series

 The following is a list of the number of cards per game:

  • Dwar7s Spring: 136
  • Enchanted Forest Expansion: 80-100 (depending on SGs)
  • Conversion Pack: 20
  • Legendary Expansion: 40
  • Dwar7s Winter: 84
  • Elven Uprising: 37
3rd Edition comes in a big box that includes the core game and the Royal Decree Expansion. The box has enough room to fit all the other expansions of the season!

We will charge shipping after the Kickstarter concludes based on the actual costs incurred to ship. Payment will be collected 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 ship to you from one of the hubs below:

  • UK: GamesQuest
  • Asia: VFI
  • Australia: Aetherworks
  • Canada: Snakes & Lattes
  • USA: QuarterMaster
  • Germany, Rest of Europe & Rest of the World: Happyshops

UK & Brexit:

The delivery time of the game is scheduled for May 2020. Right now, the UK is in an unstable and unknown status as far as its relationship with the EU is concerned. There is no way for us to predict how this is going to end and what repercussions this might inflict on shipping. Our goal is to bring the games into the EU and then find the best way to transfer them to the UK. We are monitoring the situation and will let you know more when we do.

Brazilian Backers:

We are going to be using VFI to give you Custom-Friendly shipping solution. We understand that this might take a little longer to be fulfilled but at least there will be NO custom fees and extra surprise charges for your pledge!

Currently, just like the Dwar7s Fall Collector's Edition, Dwar7s Spring will NOT be published by Mandala Jogos within Brazil.

The following is a list of rough estimates for shipping of the basic 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" category.

Please note, the core game and stretch goals will be in separate game boxes. We expect the shipping box will be 29 cm x 29 cm x 16 cm. The estimated shipping rates below are based on this large box size.

PICKUP 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!

Halifax, Canada

  •  The Board Room Cafe: 1256 Barrington St, Halifax NS, B3J 1Y6
  •  Cape & Cowl Collectibles: 536 Sackville Dr, Lower Sackville NS, B4C 2R8

We will ask you to specify the exact pick up location in the pledge manager after the end of the campaign.

Athens, Greece

  •  Κάισσα Πειραιά: Αριστοτέλους 11, 18535, Πειραιάς (τηλ. 210 4296845)
  •  No Label X: Μπόταση 4, 106 82, Αθήνα
  •  Meeple on Board: Πιττακή 7, 17122, Νέα Σμύρνη

We will ask you to specify the exact pick up location in the pledge manager after the end of the campaign.

We want to thank all of the backers who have been supporting us and helping us create and deliver great games. That is why we created a special Loyalty program.

Whenever you select a pledge that has the Vesuvius Media Loyalty Credit item in it, you will receive a $5 Loyalty Credit for our next Kickstarter 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).

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 who have paid more shipping costs by supporting us in multiple campaigns.

If you have Loyalty Credit from previous campaigns and choose not to use it in this one, then you will have an additional $5 for the next one.

To be eligible for the Loyalty credit, you must pledge for a reward 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 learn from our mistakes, we listen to your suggestions, and we strive to become better. Always feel free to contact us with your comments, questions, and concerns.

GDPR and Data/Privacy Protection law

By pledging on this campaign, you give us the right to transfer your personal data to selected partners, in the sole purpose of sending you your games. We never sell your data to anyone, and we won't transfer it to partners who aren't involved directly in fulfilling your pledge. In details, your personal information will be handled by:

  • us, Vesuvius Media, to transfer it to the partners who will need it
  • a Pledge Manager solution (we use Hive - www.hiveinteractive.net) to collect your shipping address and pledge preferences
  • the fulfillment company in charge of shipping the game to you (we work with Quartermaster Logistics for US, Snakes&Lattes for Canada, GamesQuest for UK, VFI for Asia/Australia and HappyShops for Rest of EU/Rest of the World)
  • the transporter chosen by the fulfillment company to deliver you the game (FedEx, UPS, DHL, etc.)

While we have chosen these partners for their high level of professionalism, we can't guarantee that they comply with GDPR.

Please note that while GDPR only applies to the European Union, for simplicity and because GDPR globally gives a much better protection for customers, we will apply the principles of this law no matter where you live in the world.

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 support [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 May 2020. 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

After this campaign, 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 May, 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.
