Hello All,

I wanted to let you know about a project I have been working on for about a year now. I received allot of help along the way from all of you here on BGDF and wanted to share my Kickstarter campaign:

Where else are you going to get over 30 miniatures! (35mm high quality)
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/greenbriergames/zpocalypse-an-epic-z...

Zpocalypse is a survival board game set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Two to four players start in a basement/fallout shelter which can lead out to several base locations or even through the tunnels to sewer grates throughout the transformable board. Their survivors are trying to make it day to day in a world torn apart from the walking dead.

As in any survival game one needs food, guns, ammo, and more. Players go out into the wasteland and scavenge for supplies, or perhaps to find a new gun or melee weapon to fend off the next zombie attack.

In addition to gathering supplies, each player forms and controls their own squad. Each squad works to fortify the base(s). However your walls and barbed wire won’t hold the dead for long, and they’re getting hungry.

Characters receive victory points for killing zombies, building defenses, and successfully completing goals. Victory points show who is soldiering on the best in this wasteland. The final tally of points determines the winner. Victory points also act as experience points for leveling up a character.

The game combines combat, tactics, resource collecting, character development, team play, and strategy towards the goal of surviving in the Zpocalypse!

Stretch Goal #2

We have heard your feedback, and recognized the need to reward all of those who have gotten us this far. So we are going to do something a bit different, something other Kickstarters may not have done. We, the creators, are going to design a mini- expansion with the input of you, the fans. We will need your feedback for what weapons, locations and cards you would like to go into it. Until you name it we're going to call it K-mini.

1) Everyone from the $55 level up will get a copy of the K-mini co-created by you the fans. K-mini will also include all the tiles and cards we were previously giving away at 25k as promos to different levels PLUS more content. K-mini by itself would be at least a $10 dollar value. We will include it here on Kickstarter for free.

2) Next, the $75 levels Supporters - we have something special planed for you. If we reach $40,000 we will be adding in the first expansion of the game called the Z-Master. Z-Master adds a 5th player as the Zombie Master to the game and 30 more Zombie miniatures!! Remember, you can still play the game without the Z-Master, but if you are someone who would rather be a Zombie than a Survivor, this is a fun addition. That means you would get the Main game (Zpocalypse,) the Z-Master expansion and K-mini all below retail value. In addition you will get Z-Master 3 months before it hits retail shelves!

3) $100 level - You still get the custom Squad Board, and now you benefit from getting the Z-Master and K-Mini expansion.

4) $125 level - Due to wrapping the extra tiles and cards into K-mini we are upgrading your level. You will now get your own personal Survivor Card!

We care about our backers and are doing our best at trying to offer the best game and all the best options.

Sincerely,

Greenbrier Games Team!

Awesome looking game.

Great to see this is doing well on Kickstarter.

Can I ask where you are getting your miniatures produced? I've been looking for a company for a while now, and haven't come up with a good one yet. Perhaps you can help. Thanks!
