From the preview:

We're still nailing down the Backerkit. I guess I was premature when I said 48 hours a week ago . This stuff is complicated. I think we're very very close. In the interim, I thought I would share this with you all. The rulebooks for SNAFU and Incursion are 8-1/2" x11". John Allison has the new covers for those created and they are variants of their respective box art. We are also doing an 8-1/2 x11" "Assets" book which will contain all the extra rules and background for exclusive characters, Drop Trooper rules and background, some fluff, and the Sub Pen missions, plus whatever else we feel like putting in it. Should be fun! The preliminary cover art is posted below.

Grindhouse Games in final days for Incursion on Kickstarter, breaks through another stretch goal

Grindhouse Games is in their final couple days over on Kickstarter. They've just broken through their $120k stretch goal but can hopefully go even higher.



From the update:

John and I have been digging deep. I think we're all the way to China at this point :-) As we've said, the goal of this campaign is to get as much done as possible without causing us to have to borrow more money. We've been cautious to date as experience has taught us we need to be. We're not a big game company with a fat cash reserve sitting around. We've cut out all the fat now and are committed to getting our own cash contributions to this KS development reimbursed down the road at retail. As of this moment, the AWESOME new stretch chart reflects the best we can do. We're taking a little risk on the stuff past 165k, thinking we can make it up on the backside. The personal risk for us is biggest at the 200k level plastic drop troopers but we're willing to accept that. Buckets of Blood: we hear you. There needs to be some more value for some of you who don't want board and t-shirt (silly kids!). We are doing three things beyond what we have already done, effective now:

Grindhouse Games posts up Incursion game play video

Grindhouse Games has posted up a game play video for their new version of Incursion over on their Kickstarter campaign.



From the update:

100k! Right on! That's a pretty neat milestone. In celebration, John and I have rearranged the stretch goals just a smidgen to push some of the specialist troop freebies closer to the event horizon. We want to ensure that this is a one and done for absolute completists so that any reasonably possible combination of forces in any mission you choose gets covered in plastic at the higher pledge levels. Furthermore, you'll note the super fun Zombie Bombardier pack as a freebie sitting in the 170k slot for Buckets of Blood. Finally, the free plastic door upgrade for Incursion is locked in at 200k. Best we can do. We can probably getthem into SNAFU as well at 205k. Maybe even 203k :-)

We'll fill in a few more items between 170 and 200 as the campaign moves forward. Plastic drop troopers are out around 250 but we can likely do metal very soon as an add-on. Waiting for John Allison art.

MOVIE! Grab yourself some popcorn and a cold one and kick back to watch an explanatory full game of Incursion played by John and Miguel in HD right here:

Esoteric Order of Gamers posts interview with Jim Bailey of Grindhouse Games

The Esoteric Order of Gamers recently sat down with Jim Bailey from Grindhouse Games and chatted about Incursion.



From the interview:

Incursion is back! Grindhouse Games have resurrected this fantastic game of weird war combat between power-armoured Allied soldiers and twisted Nazi experiments in a bunker under Gibraltar, and are bringing you a second edition via Kickstarter. The campaign has already reached its $75K funding goal and is charging towards stretch goal rewards.

Some years ago I created the rules summary sheet that came in the box of first edition Incursion, and got to know Jim Bailey of Grindhouse Games, a guy who brings a much-needed hot chilli blast of rock‘n’roll enthusiasm to the boardgaming world. It’s long overdue that Incursion was brought to a wider public of gamers who love action-packed, immersive combat games with stunning miniatures. We asked Jim a few questions about the new edition and the development of his creation.

Incursion by Grindhouse Games has made it over their funding goal as well as their first stretch goal over on Kickstarter.



From the update:

Okay, bear with me. I'll try to be brief but we have lots of topics to update you on.

For starters, not only did we fund yesterday but we just rocked right on through stretch goal #1 and we're almost halfway to #2, today. Free puppies for everyone! It was soooo much fun to put the "funded" stamp on the Blitzhund.

We have posted five Kickstarter Backer icons on the home page. Scroll on down past the stretches to check them out. You'll find Gretel, Slugger, Bomberzombie, Panzeraffe, and Paddy.

We have also posted the 1st. edition of the Incursion rulebook (including all the background and missions) on the home page plus the original 2009 versions in French and Spanish. Pass it on!

Grindhouse Games launched their Kickstarter campaign for the 2nd edition of the Incursion board game.



From the campaign:

Hi there! Thanks for checking us out.My name is Jim Bailey of Grindhouse Games and I'm asking for your help to fund a proper re-launch of our Indy hit board game, Incursion, with all the plastic components and whistles and bells that we couldn't afford to do the first time around because of the massive up-front capital it required. I'm going to just jump into the meat of this thing because I know that's what you all are really interested in :-). If you'd like to read more about our team, the game, and our history, you can scroll on down to the bottom of this page. Let's have some fun...

Grindhouse Games posts Incursion box contents photo and talks about distribution channels

Grindhouse Games shows off the box contents for the upcoming Incursion set as well as talks about how they see distribution of the game to work after their Kickstarter.



From the update:

Incursion will not be offered through big distribution this time around. We're not playing that game anymore. It's a broken system that just crushes the little guy. We will also not be offering this up through discount online retailers of any kind so that they can undercut the community-building retailers who do want to carry our game.
