Attention Resistance!

Thanks to your help, we've unlocked the Sarah Connor Social Stretch Goal!

Remember, there are still a few social stretch goals left! Be sure to follow Lynnvander on Twitter and Facebook to get those unlocked. Plus if you're on Board Game Geek, subscribing to the Terminator page will get us closer to more torso endoskeletons!

On top of that, Lynnvander has been burning the midnight oil to get you another gameplay video!

That's it for this update, stay tuned for more coming up!

Stretch Goal Incoming!
7 months ago – Tue, Mar 14, 2017 at 05:51:51 AM

Attention Resistance!

We're so close to breaking $200k! The T-50, a little death machine developed before Terminator models really got bipedal motion down and a tiny predecessor to the iconic HK-Tank, is just around the corner. This unit rolls out onto the 2029 board when Skynet is forced to fall back on its earliest designs due to the time paradox tug-of-war.

It sits somewhere between "killer death rover" and "star of next Pixar film."

A few quick announcements before we embark on our own time traveling for the night—don't forget it's daylight savings time in the US tonight!

Tomorrow at 2PM PST JD Boucher and Taylor Smith from Space Goat will playing Terminator live on Facebook on BJ Shea's Geek Nation Board Game Alliance show. Their Facebook can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/BJGeekNation/

As we've announced, we won't be adding any more new optional buys. Learn about what we have already available on this site we put together. Here's a quick reminder on how to add optional buys to your pledge. The short version is: pick out what you'd like to also get and increase the value of your pledge by that amount. After the campaign is over, you can specifically choose the items you put pledge towards.

Livestream Gameplay & Stretch Goal Terminated!
7 months ago – Tue, Mar 14, 2017 at 05:51:40 AM

Hey Resistance!

Taylor Smith and JD Boucher of Space Goat Productions played The Terminator with the amazing guys over at BJ Shea's Geek Nation. Check it out!

Quick disclaimer: some of the rules may have been fudged a little bit. If there's any confusion, trust what you've read or heard above what you just saw. The goal was to capture the strategy, pacing, and mood of a couple rounds—and to make bad jokes!

We're firmly passed $200k and roaring into our final days! Exciting times ahead! Here's the stretch goal you unlocked last night:

You can look forward to more updates through the countdown as we run through design theory from Lynnvander and designed/illustrated assets to feast your eyes upon. Until then, let's keep the momentum building!

From here on out, it's nothing but stretch goals.

Optional Buys: Easier and Cooler for your Convenience
7 months ago – Sat, Mar 11, 2017 at 07:49:51 AM

Attention: Resistance!

We've overhauled the campaign page: reorganized, condensed, and generally cleaned up everything. Check it out, let us know what you think, and share it around your social media groups!

The biggest change is to the optional buys. We've divided them into four categories: Expansions (gameplay-related), Accessories (cosmetic), Extras (more copies), and Metalhead (for everything metal). Any optional buy can be picked up individually or in bundles—all categories except Extras have a cheaper bundled price to make adjusting your pledge easier. Let's take a look at these bad boys:

 

 

 

 Hold up, what's that? Let's take a closer look at that Accessory bundle...

This obstacle pack contains 3D figures to cover all blocked out areas on the 2029 board: walls, corners, sides, and obstacle tiles. These figures create a fully immersive built up experience for your enemy action. Being fitted to the ~25mm grid makes these pieces readily usable for other standard-sized miniature games as well.

Enough about new optional buys! Let's give some love to the gameplay expansions we already have. We put together this convenient site for you to learn more about each of the gameplay optional buys. As always, developer Q&As will be tomorrow from noon to 2PM PST. If you can't make that time, feel free to drop questions in the comments to this update to save for later.

With these optional buys all organized and tidy, we could all use a quick reminder on how to add optional buys to your pledge. The short version is: pick out what you'd like to also get and increase the value of your pledge by that amount. After the campaign is over, you can specifically choose the items you put pledge towards.
