Dwar7s Winter & The Lost Tribes NOW on Kickstarter   until JUNE 21st

Thank you backers! The campaign funded in less than 2 hours and keeps growing!

To returning backers, welcome back to our ever expanding Dwar7s World!

If you are new to Dwar7s, welcome! There is tons of fun to be had!

Daily Social Challenge

You may be familiar with "stretch goals", which often gives backers new content depending on the amount of money the Kickstarter raises. For this campaign, we decided to get creative... instead of stretch goals, we have Daily Social Challenges!

Every day at 11:00 am EST, we will reveal a new Social Challenge. It could be as simple as posting a comment or liking the Dwar7s Facebook page, just check the Kickstarter campaign page each day for the latest challenge. When the Social Challenge is complete we will add content to the game and reveal a new piece of the Dwar7s story.

Did you know the greatest ogre general fell in love with a troll?! Their descendants were cast away and became the barbarian tribe known as the Half-Bloods!

Today, thanks to your participation, we already unlocked the first and second Social Challenges! The Alchemist and Baby Dragon minis have been added to the Lost Tribes expansion and we learned more about the Half-Bloods' story (see below)! 

The Dwar7s World includes amazing characters and rich lore. Instead of overwhelming you with everything on day 1, we'll unlock details throughout the campaign and keep you engaged!  We know that we need to give you a LOT of content to be able to play the Lost Tribes expansion fully with Dwar7s Winter, Spring and Summer (Coming Soon!), so get ready! This is going to be fun!

Today's Social Challenge REAVEALED! 

This is a BIG one! So much great content to unlock! You've got this!!!

AND there's lots more to be revealed!

Spread the word! Early Bird pledge ends in 24 hours!

 

 With all of the Social Challenges we've unlocked so far, there are now 61 miniatures in the Lost Tribes expansion!

Vesuvius Media is excited to announce Dwar7s Winter and the Lost Tribes expansion, by game designer and illustrator Luis Brueh, launched on Kickstarter and funded within the first 2 hours of the crowdfunding campaign. The Lost Tribes expansion is the latest addition to the award-winning Dwar7s series of board games, and can be played with Dwar7s Winter, Dwar7s Spring and Dwar7s Summer (in development).

"The Lost Tribes expansion completes winter and spring, and gets you ready for summer!" said Konstantinos Manos, CEO of Vesuvius Media. "During the campaign, we expect to unlock over 140 miniatures for this expansion. Backers, get ready!"

The Lost Tribes expansion adds 3 new tribes: Crystal Dwarfs, Half-Bloods, and Ogres. Each tribe has their own detailed back story and asymmetric gameplay.

Dwar7s Winter is a semi-cooperative, tower defence and hand building game for 1 to 4 players. It plays in about one hour and is recommended for ages 13+. Backers of this Kickstarter campaign will receive Dwar7s Winter Family Mode, which simplifies the rules and streamlines the game for children as young as 5 years old.

"The Family Mode makes Dwar7s Winter fully cooperative and encourages sharing resources to fend off monsters and resolve disasters," said Manos. "We made just enough tweaks in the original gameplay to make it easier for kids to follow, while keeping it interesting for adults too."

Much like the previous Dwar7s games, Dwar7s Winter and the Lost Tribes expansion is language independent (no text on the cards). The Dwar7s Winter rulebook is available online in multiple languages, including English, French, Greek, German, Spanish, Hungarian, Polish, Japanese, Dutch, Italian, and Portuguese.
