Survey Stretch Goals!
8 months ago – Fri, Jun 16, 2017 at 12:31:11 AM

Attention Resistance Soldiers:

Thank you everyone for taking the time to fill out your surveys! We really appreciate it. If you're having any trouble filling it out or have not received it yet, please send us a DM or email us at

Now, onto survey stretch goals.

The first you already know about, if we get 1000 subscribers on Board Game Geek, we're putting 4 more endoskeleton torsos in the core game!

Our other survey stretch goal is another social stretch goal, and there are two ways you all can unlock it! You don't have to get both, whatever goal we hit first will unlock the stretch goal.

1. Getting 1000 followers on Space Goat's newly minted Instagram! (Expect cool board game photos, comics, possibly cats)

2. Getting 250 shares on this Facebook post. 

If we get either of these, then we will be adding the alternate T-800 to all core games!

That's it for today. If you have any questions or concerns, again feel free to send us a direct message or email us at and we'll get back to you as soon as we can.

We'll be back,

Team Space Goat

Survey on Tuesday!
9 months ago – Mon, Jun 12, 2017 at 12:58:00 AM

Attention Resistance Soldiers: 

 The survey will be going out at 11AM on June 13th! It is important to respond to your survey as quickly as you can since we need this information for fulfilling your rewards. You do not need to create a BackerKit account to fill out your survey: just click on the survey link, fill it out, and you’re all good to go! You will be able to answer questions about your rewards preferences, provide shipping information, and pledge for more Optional Buys if you'd like. You do not have access to this survey link yet, but it will be available soon via email.

If you decide later that you want to edit your survey response, you can go back to your survey and change it any time before we lock down the surveys for processing.  

If you need to review your information or pledge status, you will be able to recover your survey here:  

If you use your Facebook login for your Kickstarter account, the BackerKit survey will be sent to the email you used for your Facebook account. If you have another email address that you would prefer to use, please contact support at and we'll get you sorted out!  

The pledge manager will be open for 45 days. After that we will be locking it down for final manufacturing numbers. So be sure to get it done!  

We will have 2 social stretch goals going while the pledge manager is running! One you'll recognize from the campaign: if we get enough subscribers to The Terminator on Board Game Geek we can add more Torso Endoskeletons. We already have 688, so we're making good progress!

Then if we get a certain amount of shares on a Facebook post that will be going up on Tuesday, we’ll add the alternate T-800 to the core game!  All 6 of the photo cards and foil printing have all been unlocked already, so good job! They will be included with every pledge $60 and above. 

The Skynet Mainframe and Turret have been completed, so you’ll want to keep an eye on for the first look! Look forward to an update on Tuesday when the survey goes out. In the meantime, if you have any questions, feel free to message us through Kickstarter or email us directly at!

We'll be back,

Production Update 6/2 - Survey Imminent
9 months ago – Fri, Jun 02, 2017 at 10:34:15 PM

Hey Resistance Soldiers,

We are happy to announce that the survey portion of the campaign—aka, the pledge manager—will be launching early next week. You'll be able to select or add expansions and accessories you'd like with your pledge, as well as cover shipping. We'll announce right before the survey launches too. This will also be an opportunity for anyone who didn't back the campaign to get a copy of the game early, so make sure to share it out with any slowpokes you might know.

Our 3D figure files are just about ready to be sent to the manufacturer for review. We're working with our manufacturer's in-house sculptors to analyze and revise the files to be optimized for mass production. We have every confidence in this team of sculptors and anticipated this process going much faster than it did for Evil Dead 2.

We're very much on track for our December delivery date. Here's a rough checklist of what still needs to happen:

  • Optimizing of figures for mass production
  • Final approval by Arnold Schwarzenegger and Studiocanal for actor likenesses.
  • Final skinning of the game and assets
  • Manufacturing
  • Delivery

We'll continue to update as we check these items off.

Over and out,

Team Space Goat

Production Update 5/16
9 months ago – Tue, May 16, 2017 at 11:45:37 PM

Incoming Transmission, Resistance:

Our update for today is figure-focused. Here are some of the new ones we've been working on, with the behind the scenes of the design process.

First up, we have Farrow Greene: the new playable character from Dark Horse Comics' Enemy of My Enemy storyline. She's a badass Resistance fighter that can be played in 1984 or 2029, since she fought in both eras.

She definitely walks the walk.

How does one fight so well against Skynet? Well, consider finding yourself a trusty companion that can sniff out trouble.

It's a dog-eat-robot world out there.

That's a nice human disguise you got there, Arnold. It'd be a doggone shame if someone were to, say, chew it off.

And lastly, for this update, we have the third Sarah Connor pose, used in the play variant featuring decoy Sarahs. It's like a shell game of life and death. We were inspired by this deleted scene of Sarah and Kyle before going to the Cyberdyne factory: She's coming up with a plan and looking cool doing it; this is the beginning of Sarah Connor as the Resistance leader who would raise John to his own greatness and we wanted to capture that moment.


Sarah tells it how it is.

Production is moving along right on track. There have been a couple hard lessons we learned during Evil Dead 2 that we've been able to minimize or totally eliminate for Terminator. For example, likeness approvals are able to begin much sooner in our production process, all the notes for optimizing figures for manufacturing were provided to the sculptors before they began, and there are no painted figures this time, to name a few.

Lastly, we're very close to announcing the opening of the pledge manager, also called as the survey. Please look forward to updates regarding it coming out before the next scheduled major update.

Over and Out,
