Gameplay

The Terminator™: The Official Board Game is an asymmetrical strategy game for 2-5 players played across two boards: one in 1984 and one in 2029. One player takes control of all of Skynet’s forces: Hunter Killer machines, Terminator cyborgs, and more. The rest of the players take the role of the human resistance, struggling against the impossible odds of the machine uprising. Each of the two game boards play differently: 2029 focuses on light troop and resource management in a lopsided battle for dominance. 1984 focuses on personal missions with high stakes and intense pacing. Missions arise through the course of gameplay, and have players make decisions in 1984 that will affect the future, erasing and adding components in real time.

Press

The Terminator: The Official Board Game has been featured at the following outlets!

Retailer Info

We understand the struggle retailers have when it comes to Kickstarter campaigns, as there’s a lot of Kickstarter exclusive goodies that retailers don’t get access to through their normal retailer channels. That’s why Space Goat has made every Kickstarter product available to retailers while the campaign is running! If there’s something we offer on the Kickstarter, you’ll be able to buy it for your shop.

We are also soliciting the game with a number of distributors while the campaign is running, in case you want to get less than 6.

Who We Are

Created in 2006, Space Goat Productions has decades of combined experience producing comic books, TV, animation, video games, commercial art, and concept design. This past year, Space Goat began production on board games for both the Evil Dead and Terminator franchises, and has since acquired The Howling along with a few other top secret licenses soon to be announced. Space Goat has transformed from the industry's premier service provider, to a highly successful comic book and board game publisher.Space Goat is also the comic book industry’s premier production studio. We’ve provided art and creative services for Marvel, DC, Nike, Microsoft, Universal Studios, Riot Games, and Blizzard Entertainment.

Gofton, Lynnvander is responsible for the inception of several media initiatives including projects of film, literature, game design, and company leadership.

About Taylor Smith

Taylor Smith designed Evil Dead 2: The Official Board Game and rumors have it that the Dark Ones have been inhabiting his mortal vessel ever since. Editor, Creative Director, and official Captain (he has the hat to prove it) at Space Goat Productions, Taylor worked behind the scenes on major projects in the worlds of Elder Scrolls, Halo, Guild Wars, StarCraft, and more. He's also made a couple RPGs and released them independently under the moniker of Whimsy Machine Games—they're pretty neat.

Why Kickstarter?

  1. We literally could not make a game of this scale without Kickstarter. We want to make a game that hardcore board game fans and Terminator fans will love with the coolest miniatures possible, but we can’t do that without funding assistance from Kickstarter. We’ve done all we can on our own, but after this point we need backers’ help.

  2. The Kickstarter community is amazing and we love them! With their feedback, support, and advice, we made Evil Dead 2 a way better game than if we did it by ourselves. We want backers to be part of the process, we want their ideas for stretch goals, optional buys, mechanics, etc. We may not be able to use everything you suggest, but the suggestions we do use will make it a much better game.

We know a lot of companies just try and use Kickstarter as an ATM, but that’s not something we we want to be a part of at Space Goat. Kickstarter is a wonderful community that we’re privileged to be a part of, and we want to do our best to serve that community. If people have suggestions that would improve the game, we’ll try to implement them! If we can’t, we’ll explain why. We’re happy to give you as much information as we can, to the point that we’ll send you way too much on the intricacies of board game pre-press if we have to.

Shipping

Shipping will be charged after the Kickstarter ends based on actual shipping costs and is collected via Backerkit. This allows us to charge shipping fairly for all backers and avoid a 'one size fits all' mentality to shipping.

Below are shipping estimates for the core game (estimated to be around 3lbs). These are just estimates. Costs may rise due to weight increase as more items are unlocked via stretch goals and optional buy purchases you choose. This will be calculated by Backerkit after backer surveys are turned in. We will not be able to ship to China.

  • USA - $15

  • EU (including UK) - $20.00

  • Canada - $20

  • AU - $35

  • Mexico - $35

  • Most other countries - $35

We have customs friendly local shipping in USA, EU, Canada and Australia. We will look for the same arrangement in all locations where we have a significant number of backers.
