Spearpoint 1943: Eastern Front is not yet funded on Kickstarter. We want to get this game into production in July.

Spearpoint is a great system with a miniatures-like feel to it - in fact, you can replace the cards with corresponding 15mm miniatures of your choice. Our Map-Based Expansion received an Origins Award nomination this year under Best Historical Boardgame, and the original and expansion continue to get us high marks in reviews, the most recent of which is by Mike Siggins in Miniature Wargames magazine.

We've also just added a gameplay video of the system rules, filmed at Origins last week. Check that out here:

We're hoping to reach our 16k goal by July 1. To sweeten what we are offering, our latest update includes some cool add-ons that can be added to any level of support, and may be used in not just Spearpoint: Eastern Front, but in other games as well. In particular, the paper Eastern Front map, shown below, has some gorgeous detail and is well-suited for 15mm scale. It can be added to any support level for just $10 USD. A mounted version is included in the Village and Defensive Line Map Expansion game.

For all of the details, and to go pledge your support, please head over to our Kickstarter project page. If you like WWII gaming in any form, I am confident you will enjoy our games.

Best!
