Created by CMON

More Than a Game Cafe has partnered with CMON to make the Kickstarter Experience better for backers in Thailand. Prices and Pledge rewards will be the same, with a few key differences:

  • More Than a Game Cafe will accept payment in Thai Baht. (Kickstarter only accepts $US)
  • More Than a Game Cafe pledges will have priority for first delivery of rewards and add-ons.
  • More Than a Game Cafe will handle all customs and import issues so you won’t have to.
  • Pick-up at More Than a Game locations, or ship anywhere in Thailand.

 

Zombicide: Invader is a standalone cooperative board game for 1 to 6 players, taking the trademark Zombicide action into the far reaches of space! Players control a group of Survivors trying to defend their remote mining outpost from a swarm of infected aliens controlled by the game itself. The more experience and power the Survivors earn, the more Xenos invade the facility! This sci-fi interpretation of Zombicide is as sleek as ever, playing fast and furious. The rules have been optimized to reduce setup time and make the game flow quickly, focusing the action on the struggle between the Survivors and the Xenos.  

Optional buys are available for those who pledge at the Civilian or Soldier level.

The game’s character artwork was created by renowned artist Adrian Smith, and brought to life as miniatures by the talented team at BigChild Creatives.

The Survivors in the PK-L7 outpost came from all walks of life to aid in the Xenium mining operations, and are divided into two types: Civilians are incredibly resourceful, being able to find useful gear in any room of the facility, on the downside they tend to not be very well protected. Soldiers, on the other hand, usually wear heavy combat armor which give them an edge against the invaders. However, their military training means they’ll only find gear in specific Security rooms.

Zombicide: Invader comes with:

  • 9 Double-sided Game Tiles
  • 72 Miniatures
  • 6 Survivor Plastic Dashboards, Color Bases, and ID Cards
  • 48 Plastic Trackers
  • 6 Dice
  • 125 Mini Cards
  • 15 Mold Cards
  • 50 Tokens
  • 1 Rulebook

Miniatures painted by Ruben Martinez, David Arroba, and Rodrigo Cipres. NOTE THAT MINIATURES COME UNPAINTED. Click the image to see a Hi-Res album.

With some luck, Survivors may be able to use some advanced machines to aid their struggle. If you can find the right remote (or are some tech wiz) you’ll be able to control the Falchion Sentry Gun to mow down Xenos, or maneuver the Peacekeeper Bot in coordinated attacks. if they manage to last long enough, Survivors can become formidable fighting machines. The more Xenos they kill, the more experience they get, allowing them to unlock new skills as the game progresses. The equipment they find is arranged in their plastic dashboard, with slots for Hand weapons, armor and other gear that can be carried on the body, and a Backpack to store those things you may not need right now.

Prototype weapons are amazing silent killing machines, but they require an attached Energy Cell to use.

Survivors will need all the help they can get to face the Xeno invasion. These mindless creatures come in several different types. Workers are numerous, but manageable. Hunters are deadly fast predators you need to be always on the lookout for. Tanks can take a beating, and dole out an even worse beating. Keep your distance!

The different types of Xenos.

Certainly the worse of the Xenos is the hulking Spoiler Abomination! This nightmare can only be put down by concentrating your fire, or literally disintegrating it with Hellfire! Don’t be fooled by its size, this thing can run you down when you least expect it. Its spawn cards give it extra activations, and it will also leap forward if you ever run out of miniatures. Make no mistake, the other Xenos may be threatening, but this is the last thing you’ll see before you die.

If that wasn’t bad enough, the Spoiler Abomination also fills any room it moves into with a terrible alien substance we call Mold. This thing eats through doors and walls, completely destroying the room and changing the layout of the map. This Mold may spawn even more Xenos, but worse yet, if it spreads too far, the base will be irrevocably lost (and so will you). Burn it down before it’s too late.

Use a flamethrower to burn that Mold to a crisp before it can consume the base!

The base at PK-L7 is all you have. Walking out into the planet’s surface may be necessary at times, but it’s a dangerous endeavor. You’ll need to get an Oxygen tank in the Supply room if you want to walk out the airlock. And you better arm yourself with a melee or energy weapon, since the outside atmosphere keeps bullet weapons or flamethrowers from working.

The tiles feature several different Zone types, like Exterior, Oxygen Supply Room, Airlock, Security, and Corridor.

WIP Rulebook

Please be aware that this is a Work In Progress Rulebook. It is not final. Rules may still be tweaked and changed, layout and graphics may still be altered. So, if you see anything in here that isn’t the same later, understand that during the Kickstarter the project is still in development and all aspects are subject to improvements.

The journey into the unknown doesn’t end here! The Zombicide: Black Ops expansion raises the intensity to brings new challenges for an elite group of Survivors! The Soldiers of Black Squad can be added to your roster, allowing you to play the game with up to 12 players at the same time! These battle-hardened soldiers have been called in to deal with the situation on PK-L7, and find a base already being consumed by the Mold. The 10 new Missions utilize 3 new tiles containing zones already filled with Mold. That means extra Xeno spawning, and a more imminent threat of the base being lost for good. These Mold zones also feature glowing pods of an altered form of Xenium, which may be fired at causing a Hellfire explosion! As dangerous as that sounds, it may be used for our advantage, if we’re careful.

The Black Ops tiles feature explosive Xenium Pod Zones.

This dilapidated base is also under threat of a new type of Abomination we call the Juggernaut. This thing is as ugly as it is unstoppable. Upgrading your weapon won’t work, concentrating your fire won’t work. I guess we’ll just need to lure it into one of those sensitive Pod zones. Black Squad brings some of its own elite equipment to the mission, including the hard-hitting XN25 “Crawley” Bot, the devastating Meteor Sentry Gun (a rail gun that can hit multiple zones), and an arsenal of powerful Starting Equipment and other gear,

Extra arsenal for the Black Ops.

  • 3 Double-sided Game Tiles

  • 6 Survivor Plastic Dashboards, Color Bases, and ID Cards

Shipping and duty fees will be announced at the end of the campaign. Risks and challenges This is CMON’s 30th Kickstarter, and there are some vagaries in terms of timing when it comes to anything produced in China, such as: Production delays Shipping delays Customs delays The estimated delivery date is April 2019, but keep in mind this is only an estimate. Also, due to the logistics of international shipping, backers in different regions of the world may receive their rewards sooner than others. If the unthinkable happens and for some totally unforeseen reason the game can’t be delivered at all, we will be happy to refund in full.  Since the game is 90% complete, we don’t believe this is in the least bit likely. CMON has successfully delivered Zombicide, Sedition Wars, Guilds of Cadwallon, Zombicide Season 2, Relic Knights, Rivet Wars, Kaosball, Dogs of War, Arcadia Quest, Wrath of Kings, XenoShyft, our Base System, Zombicide Season 3, The World of Smog: On Her Majesty’s Service, Rum & Bones, Blood Rage, B-Sieged, Zombicide: Black Plague, The Others, XenoShyft: Dreadmire and Masmorra: Dungeons of Arcadia, Arcadia Quest: Inferno, Rum & Bones: Second Tide, and Massive Darkness. The World of Smog: Rise of Moloch, Rising Sun, and wave 1 of Zombicide: Green Horde, with wave 2 shipping soon. REFUND POLICY We can refund you in full within 14 days of the campaign’s end, fees included. After that, we have a policy of no questions asked, though that’s minus Kickstarter and payment processing fees (which we can’t get back from them after 14 days). However, if we’ve begun packaging your pledge for shipment (usually 4 to 6 weeks before the actual shipping date), no refunds are possible. If a component cannot be delivered AT ALL, we refund that completely, including fees. All refunds after the 14 days close of the campaign may be processed via Paypal or reversed via Stripe to your credit card at our discretion. Refunds within 14 days are reversed via Stripe to your credit card. Payments made in THB will be refunded in THB,  and any refunds processed will be in THB for the exact amount received in THB, excluding any applicable fees depending on the time of the refund being processed. TERMS AND CONDITIONS By pledging to this project, you acknowledge that the final look, materials and content of the rewards (and the project) are subject to change and may differ substantially from what is presented while the Kickstarter project was active. If you do not log in and confirm your pledge within 8 weeks of our notification via email to confirm your pledge, you agree that we have fulfilled our obligations to you in full for payment or donations received. However, we may, at our discretion, refund or ship your pledge if you contact us and confirm your pledge after the 8 week window has elapsed. Unconfirmed pledges make it difficult for us to plan production and logistics, and in the past have led to project delays. For this project we do not intend to allow this to happen, which may mean if you confirm your pledge too late, exclusive items may not be produced in sufficient quantity for your pledge. If you confirm your pledge within 8 weeks of our notification via email, you agree that our responsibility to you is to deliver your order to you either at the More Than a Game Café location or via in-country shipping. More Than a Game Café’s responsibility ends when we hand off any items to a reliable delivery company for delivery to an address provided by you. If you do not accept these terms, please do not pledge on this project. Learn about accountability on Kickstarter Questions about this project? Check out the KickStarter FAQ
