Rivet Wars: Eastern Front Becomes One of the Highest Funded Board Games in Kickstarter’s History

Ted Terranova’s RTS inspired miniatures game, Rivet Wars: Eastern Front, a WWI era, real-time strategy board game from publisher CoolMiniorNot (CMON) has earned a spot in the top ten highest funded board games in Kickstarter’s history. 

Shattering its $25,000 goal in just two hours, Rivet Wars’ backers have pledged over $285,000 with eleven days remaining in the campaign. This is also the latest success for CMON on Kickstarter having already had success with Zombicide, Sedition Wars, Relic Knights, and Guilds of Cadwallon. 

As in an RTS video game, Rivet Wars’ players generate resources each turn which they spend on new soldiers and tanks. In this way, the players are constantly reinforcing their battle with varying units rather than being locked into a set army or strategy at the beginning of the game. 

Creator Ted Terranova, a veteran video game artist, called upon his experience  working on RTS games such as Rise of Nations when designing both the style and game play for Rivet Wars. Produced with 3D printing, the intricately detailed miniatures combine elements of Steampunk, over-the-top technologies and deceptively cute Chibi heroes.

Just as exciting as the visuals is the real time strategy style of play. Hero units are also employed to enhance or buff the attributes of other nearby soldiers. Additional figures, upgrades, and original artwork are continually being added to the core game as the Kickstarter campaign continues, up to the February 4 deadline. Rivet Wars: Eastern Front is scheduled for a September 2013 release date.
