Into the Dead: The Board Game
An all-new miniatures board game set in the zombie apocalypse world of the hit mobile games Into the Dead and Into the Dead 2.
Into the Dead: The Board Game is a competitive game of strategy and risk-taking in which players take the roles of survivors and their loyal canine companions to navigate a landscape teeming with hordes of the undead. By gathering supplies, killing zombies, and reaching safety, players show their aptitude for surviving the apocalypse through the completion of missions and collection of survival points.
Available for 1-4 players and lasting between 60 and 90 minutes, Into the Dead: The Board Game has been developed by PikPok and the team behind the hit mobile games Into the Dead and Into the Dead 2, designed by Rob Stoddard, Chris Cervantes, and Adam Poirier of Trishula Entertainment, and published by PikPok and The Brownstone Group.

Risks and challenges
We have made significant efforts to minimize risk in the usual problem areas for board game Kickstarter campaigns by contracting many industry experts to advise on these challenges so that we can preempt them as much as possible.
There are however always vagaries associated with manufacturing, shipping, and customs. We are working with highly reputable partners in order to prevent these issues as much as possible, but there may be unforeseen circumstances that will affect the final product or its delivery timeline. If so, we pledge to communicate these circumstances in a timely manner.
We aim to begin delivering this Kickstarter in Q2 2020. Due to international shipping logistics, backers in different regions may receive their reward sooner than others.
Die Kampagne steht bei 40.932,00 USD von einem Zielbetrag von 70.000,00 USD und läuft noch 15 Tage.
