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!
May 20, 2014 – SWAGMAN’S HOPE IS NOW RETAIL!
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.

Also 8th Summit has two new logos. You probably noticed above. Look for both the small (top right inside logo above) and large versions of the logo in the future.

Two big announcements this month. Expedition: Famous Explorers is set to arrive at the end of this month. We are working to get the game to all distributors and into hobby stores in the USA.
Second, Run Fight or Die goes live in 2 days on Kickstarter! There will be great early bird specials, so you might want to sign up your email to receive notification when it goes live this Sunday.

Agents of SMERSH: Swagman’s Hope finished with a successful campaign, and it is up for pre-order. Our next game is Run, Fight or Die from Richard Launius. I know there have been a lot of zombie games but not anything quite like this. Easy to play – you can learn in 2 minutes – and lots of fun for all ages – it has a certain King of Tokyo appeal. Hundreds of people have already played the prototype, so I get a lot of questions about when this one is being published. Run, Fight or Die should have been released a couple years ago but got hung up in development with another publisher. So I took this on, despite the number of zombie game releases, and work on it is soon coming to an end. We think people are going to put aside their other zombie games for this one.
August 12, 2013
I’ll be at Gencon at the Coolstuff Booth running demos of our next game – Run, Fight or Die! This is a Richard Launius design and he’ll be there as well. We have promos to give out for both Run, Fight or Die! and Expedition so make sure you stop by. Expedition:Famous Explorers is set to be released later this year. And we will have miniatures to show off by Chad Hoverter that will be in Run, Fight or Die! He did the work in Mice & Mystics.
We might be slow answering emails this week, but we will get to them as soon as possible. Make sure you check out our current project on Kickstarter: Agents of SMERSH: Swagman’s Hope.
