Click to order COVEN on Kickstarter.
Coven and Coven: The Village will go up for pre-order at 20% off retail and will include 2 unique promo characters this December 1st, if the approval process from Kickstarter is not delayed by Thanksgiving.
We are doing something novel with the offering of 5 illustrations for buyers to be in the game, but these offering will be for females only and their illustration will represent one of the five Goddesses in the game. If you want to illustrate the likeness of that woman in your life – you can have her become Kali, Hel, Lilith, Morrigan and Hecate. It would be a perfect Christmas present, and there will be only five of these available.
Coven is a very unique design and it’s a thrill working on it the past year. The board rotates and truth be told, this is a much more “thinky” than our previous publications. Paul Saxberg has combined theme and Euro style mechanics in way that we think the game will have broad appeal. I’m glad he chose to publish with us.
Coven: The Village is a small boxed expansion that will add an alternative center rotating board and place the game in a historical setting with event, story driven cards that enter play. This is so we could add…well, lots of story to the game..for those who don’t mind surprises.
8th Summit will have a booth at the Southern Hobby Retail Expo running Nov 9th-11th in Nashville. If you are a retailer and distributor and want to get a glimpse of what we have planned for 2015, stop by. We have several new games in the works, including Coven, which will go up for pre-order early December. The illustration in our current banner above is taken from Dungeon Frenzy, a card game set to release first quarter of 2015. Those two games are just the tip of the iceberg.
Run Fight or Die and Agents of SMERSH are both reprinting and they will be ready to ship to distributors and retailers by early February. Email us for more information if you want to get our games in your store. If you have trouble finding our games with you distributor be sure to let them know they should be carrying 8th Summit games. If you are a retailer, you will also find information on our games listed in GGI’s winter edition.
Halloween is around the corner and Till Dawn will be here by the middle of next month. We hope. It’s on the boat. We will ship out immediately to backers and those who order from this website and, if possible, get mailed those out before Halloween.

Wow! It’s been a busy month. Gencon makes life both exciting and very difficult. Sorry we ran out of the Die Harder packages. We are working on a reprint of all expansions.
When I get time again I will do a longer update. Still playing catch up. Stay tuned for our next project, Coven. Thanks.

NOTE: Upgrading our server system caused a lot of havoc with emails the past week. We are just now getting all of that fixed. If you tried to contact us and didn’t get a response, please try again at firstname.lastname@example.org

8th Summit will be at Dice Tower Con July 2nd-6th. We will run events for Run Fight or Die and Till Dawn with prize giveaways. Richard Launius will also be in attendance. During that time you will not be able to make orders through the website. We will disable the shopping cart. Hope to see some of you there!
Swagman’s Hope is now shipping. You can order Swagman’s Hope with the KS promos if you order from this website. The game has been sent to our distributors and will be popping up at online retailers, such as Coolstuffinc (available now!) and Games Surplus. It will be available at local hobby stores nationwide. Contact us if you would like us to list your hobby store on our site. We will post the name of your store on this page.
In Europe, Intrafin carries Agents of SMERSH and we are shipping to them Swagman’s Hope and Expedition.

Richard Launius and I will be at Gnomecon in Savannah, GA April 11-13. We hope to have several copies of Till Dawn. I have also added Grandcon in Grand Rapids, MI as a convention I will be attending this year. Grandcon is in September. Till Dawn is up and going strong on Kickstarter. It has surpassed my expectations. You will be able to order it after Kickstarter is over, but we won’t be able to offer the low below retail $24 price for very long. The Kickstarter has already added several extras and stretch goals. Check it out!
Also, remember you can order games directly from our website. We appreciate your business.

Agents of SMERSH is nominated for a BGG Golden Geek Award in the “Thematic” category. You can vote for your favorites here.
We will have a Kickstarter for a vampire themed game called Till Dawn from designers Jason Maxwell, Richard Launius and Mike Wylie. It will go up at the end of February and ship in a coffin shaped box. This is a light game for big groups, and it was a huge hit with players at AFG last week where we officially presented it as a future publication (although Richard has brought it to several previous conventions over the past two years). Sign up to our email list (look right) and will you get notified of the Kickstarter. This will be a lower priced game than our previous publications.
