Spread the Word about our Midnight Launch!

The Feudum: Rudders & Ramparts campaign will launch at 1 a.m. EST on March 1, 2019! (That’s midnight tonight for me in the central time zone). 

Justin and I are very excited to be launching our third Kickstarter campaign and kindly ask that you share the following link (and graphic, if you like) on social media. Greater awareness leads to more unlocked stretch goals for everyone!


Add-Ons + Stretch Goals

Anyone pledging $1 or more will have access to several NEW purchasable “add-ons” to the Feudum product line—The Guild Tracking Dice, the Playmat Board and the Metal Flight Stand.

Anyone pledging $35 or more will earn Free stretch goals (expansion enhancements and rewards to be revealed during the campaign).  All funding raised by backers of the Spieleschmiede (Germany) will also count towards unlocking stretch goals!

Dized, Berserk, Kickstarter and a Magazine Cover!
6 months ago – Tue, Dec 11, 2018 at 12:23:50 AM

Hi Folks! I wanted to update you on a few nifty things that are happening...

1. Feudum Rules on Dized!  

I met these folks at Gen Con and they are really committed to making games more accessible to the masses via interactive rulebooks and tutorials.  Feudum rules are in the works and will be available soon! Be sure to offer your support on Dized's kickstarter campaign happening right now! 

2. Feudum on Tabletop Simulator by Berserk!

Berserk Games and I have been working feverishly on a custom DLC to be released on Steam through Tabletop Simulator! The goal is to release Q1 of 2019, and it's going to be absolutely stunning, complete with a Feudum-themed 3D environment!  Berserk plans on offering a 20% discount on release unlocking all expansions—so be sure to keep your eyes open! 

3. Feudum Expansion on Kickstarter!

Folks, you may have heard rumors about this already but in case you haven't, Odd Bird Games will be launching an expansion called Feudum: Rudders & Ramparts featuring official artisan-edition vessels and castles! Jointly crafted by Justin Schultz, Bruce Monson and Scott Ryan, the deluxe components may be used to play a military variant of the game—or enjoyed solely for their beauty. I will publish the Kickstarter preview page as soon as it is ready. The launch will happen March 1, 2019 with delivery slated for December 2019. Here is a sneak peek at the prototypes. Follow/Like Feudum on Facebook for updates!

4. Feudum on the Cover of the CBT!

The Columbia Business Times honored me with a feature story in their magazine! The journalist did a spectacular job of thoroughly describing all the ins-and-outs of the business. I hope you enjoy! By the way, any "smolder" that you see on my face is purely accidental.
