I'm up for more investigators! Dad smoking a pipe! Ottoman with a fez! Works for me!

"And while I'm forgiving of one mishap, this string of incidences suggests the problem is with the project managers, not whom they hire, what materials they are using, what language their backers are using, etc. I do notice that entrepreneurs have more self-confidence than other people, and need it to persevere bad luck and obstacles. But this self-confidence can turn into "do nothing wrong" blindness, which prevents these people from admitting mistakes and improving themselves." -- September 3, 2014

So I've repurposed the Expo thread for this as it didn't seem worthwhile to start a new thread.

Recent CMON games news

Project: Elite - Kickstarter Q4 2018
those unreleased Sedition Wars minis finally get a release (this is not connected to Sed Wars just using those minis)



CMON Limited announced today they are producing an updated edition of the widely-acclaimed board game Project: ELITE by designers Konstantinos Kokkinis and Sotirios Tsantilas. Originally released in 2016, Project: ELITE is a unique real-time, cooperative board game like no other.

In Project: ELITE, players are members of the ELITE squad on a mission to stop the invading forces of an alien empire. Stopping the invasion will require players to speedily roll dice as they take part in real-time, 2-minute combat rounds against waves of terrifying enemies. Once the ELITE members take their turn, the aliens will react. The game continues in this fast-yet-tactical series of rounds until the scenario is won or the aliens take the Earth.

CMON’s new edition was developed based on community feedback from the initial release. Players can expect all-new art by Stefan Kopinski, Saeed Jalabi, and Henning Ludvigsen, all-new miniatures by Studio McVey, with personal oversight by Mike McVey, new card designs, new weapons, new ELITE members, new enemies, and more. Beyond the base game, CMON will also introduce expansions and more through a Kickstarter campaign set for Q4 2018.

CMON’s Production Manager, Thiago Aranha recalls, “When Project: ELITE released, gamers loved it. We saw their feedback and knew CMON could take the game to the next level with a new edition that upped the production value to match the high-quality gameplay.


Zombicide RPG:

You’ve fought zombies in the malls. You’ve fought them in the morgues. You’ve fought them in the prisons. You’ve fought them in castles. You’ve fought them in hedgerows. You’ll soon be fighting them in space. But this new Zombicide lets you fight zombies in an all-new way. CMON has announced a new Zombicide Role-Playing Game.

From the announcement:

CMON Limited announced today that they have partnered with Need Games!, an up-and-coming Italian RPG publisher, to design and publish Zombicide: The Role-Playing Game (Z:RPG), based on the celebrated board game franchise.

Z:RPG, designed by Marco Maggi and Francesco Nepitello, merges the classic zombie-bashing action that players expect from the Zombicide line of board games with the exciting character creation and development of an immersive role-playing game. An intuitive set of game rules will allow players to create original Survivors during a Prologue that narrates the players’ first contact with the undead menace. Then, the Survivors will plunge head-first and galvanize into a group of die-hards with their first adventure: “The Crossroad”. This adventure will allow the players to describe where and how they got together, and why they watch each others’ backs. “The Crossroad” is a fully-customizable entry point, created to allow for different play-styles and settings, whether a classic urban locale, an infested shopping mall or hospital, a remote scientific lab, and more.


Trudvang Legends Board Game - KS Q2 2019




CMON Limited will be launching a Kickstarter campaign for Trudvang Legends, an upcoming storytelling board game based on the successfully crowdfunded Swedish RPG: Trudvang Chronicles. Steeped in epic Nordic and Celtic myths and sagas, players will take the roles of legendary heroes who make their mark on a dynamic, everchanging fantasy world.

Designed by Eric M. Lang, Guilherme Goulart, and Fel Barros, Trudvang Legends thrusts players into a cycle of epic sagas, where their achievements will change not only the world itself, but the very rules by which gods, peoples and nature interact. They will quest through an interwoven series of Adventure Books, and the results of their choices will echo through history: changing the relationships between sovereign nations, usurping kings, creating new waygates, or even locking and unlocking parts of the map.

Change in Trudvang Legends manifests physically, as parts of the board actually change, making the actions of previous hero generations affect future sagas. However, the changes are only as permanent as long as history remembers them, which makes the game endlessly replayable, and even playing the same Adventure Book repeatedly will have a completely different feeling, because the world itself has changed. Heroes, following a path of destiny, will even become historical fixtures as they become Kings, Guildmasters or even Gods!

Trudvang Legends features incredible art by Paul Bonner, Alvaro Tapia, Gio Guimarães, and Henning Ludvigsen and graphic design by Fabio de Castro and Júlia Ferrari. Heroes and monsters will be represented by highly-detailed miniatures sculpted by Juan Navarro Perez, Arnaud Boudoiron, Edgar Ramos, and Aragorn Marks.

“We, at RiotMinds, could not ask for a better partner than CMON to elevate the Trudvang franchise.” says Theodore Bergquist, co-founder of RiotMinds. “The work we’ve seen so far is absolutely stunning and all the Trudvang fans out there will see the world come to life for sure.”

“The world of Trudvang presents us with an exciting opportunity to create a really innovative game based on the cycles of history and legend,” said Lang. “We’re looking to push some boundaries with this game, and really commit to the concept of a living world.”

Trudvang Legends will launch on Kickstarter in Q2 of 2019.



Munchkin Dungeon



CMON Limited announced today that they have teamed with Steve Jackson Games to design and publish Munchkin Dungeon based on the award-winning card game.

Munchkin Dungeon captures the same playful sense of humor of the original card game, while providing a completely new experience. It is the first collaboration between designers Eric M. Lang (Blood Rage, Rising Sun, Arcadia Quest) and Andrea Chiarvesio (Richard the Lionheart, Kingsburg, Hyperborea).

In the game, 3-6 players will enter a dungeon and attempt to collect the most treasure and achieve the highest character level. They will have to push their luck if they want to be successful in their adventure, but if they come across a foe that’s a little too big to face, they can always run away. If players choose to take the cowardly (albeit occasionally logical) route of avoiding danger, they will earn Shame which will be counted against them at the end of the game. You can’t be a hero without exhibiting a little bravery!


Starcadia Quest Kickstarter 28 August -already has it's own thread



CMON’s newest Kickstarter promises to be out of this world! Starcadia Quest is an all new stand-alone campaign game for 2 to 4 players. The dastardly Supreme Commander Thorne is looking to control the galaxy (at least a good portion of it) and each player leads a crew of two heroes flying through space on a quest to defeat him. While they share the same goal, the different crews are not exactly in league with one another. They will compete as much with each other, as they do with Thorne and his army.

Players choose the direction their campaign takes, following different branching paths, each with their own unique experiences along the way. They must choose which opportunities to pursue, and which ones to leave behind—a decision that can have serious consequences later in the campaign.

Starcadia Quest takes place in a remote galaxy. A galaxy filled with aliens, lasers, treasure, and rugged heroes ready to take on anything. It’s coming to Kickstarter on August 28 at 3 PM EST, so prepare your star chart, begin the countdown, and set your phasers for fun!


Wacky Races Board Game



MON Limited is off to the wild-world of cartoon racing with their upcoming release of Wacky Races, in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, based on Warner Bros.’ popular Hanna-Barbera cartoon. Recreate the crazy, fun, and yes… wacky races from the adventurous 60s animated series.

Wacky Races puts players in the “driver’s seat” with control of their favorite drivers from the cartoon series, including The Slag Brothers, The Gruesome Twosome, Penelope Pitstop, Peter Perfect, and more, each with their own car equipped with special abilities. They’ll compete against each other—and the game-controlled, mustachioed Dick Dastardly and his wheezy pup Muttley. Each racer is depicted with amazing art from the Warner Bros. archives and CMON’s artist Giovanna Guimarães and beautifully sculpted miniatures.

Essentially this. If they tell me it's dead I'll grab a last few things and prepare for this to be a game I teach my kiddos as it's fast and easy. I can break out 4 armies whenever for funsies if friends want to play but telling me it's dead means I can wrap it up like other dead games where I'm happy with it and be done.

Has anyone played the original Project Elite? Just wondering what people thought of it.

I'd like to be able to use some of the resin minis from the sedition Wars universe in a board game, the monsters in particular were quite nice.

Project Elite was a lot of fun. It was very frantic once the action phase started and the timer ticks down.

As long as everything is one piece molds I won't be too worried about the models. The original ones are pretty ugly, but they took the abuse of getting flung off the table as we rushed to meet the enemy advance.

Poorly lit photos of my ever- growing collection of completely unrelated models!

When someone on TGN criticized CMON for trying to support too many tabletop miniatures games, the moderator (Polar Bear) pointed out that there hadn't been any new releases for Wrath of Kings.

That's probably the clearest declaration of death we're going to get.

A few big events that CMON never announced:

- Cancelled sequels to Sedition Wars (they had lore and minis made)
- No follow up to Rivet Wars
- Split with Gamezone (CMON used to be their US caster).
- Split with Sodapop


So, yeah- not announcing that Wrath of Kings is over. Maybe they think that a post mortem would kill their chances of moving remaining stock, or maybe they want to keep their options open in the hopes of using that property again. Maybe they just don't like to announce bad news.

In any case, we're not going to see the game's death announced.

If CMON wonders why they aren't selling any items for a game they don't promote then they are way out of touch. Doubly so if they think that most gamers are stupid and don't know to wait for their annual sale where those items will likely be less than half price. They have no one to blame for the death of this game but themselves. That's the reality they made for Wrath of Kings which is a shame. I love the game and it's one of the very few non-board miniatures games I own any more. Anyone considering backing a CMON Kickstarter project should decide if they are okay buying a game that will get little if any promotion or follow-up outside of the actual project and it's initial retail release. That's just CMON's pattern, though admittedly I didn't realize that back when I backed WoK.

As far as I can tell the core minis they've show off so far are all based off of his designs. Jen Haley had some pics on facebook of the ones she painted for Gencon. Now Bonner isn't the sole artist for Trudvang, I've got all the RPGs, so I wouldn't be surprised if some stuff isn't based off of his work but a lot probably will be.

It was announced by Sodapop. CMON hasn't ever said anything about it officially.

And that announcement came after the split, by quite a bit- long enough for CMON to develop Arcadia Quest as a replacement for Super Dungeon (the announcement was after the AQ kickstarter had ended- it was during the Forgotten King Kickstarter).

Project Elite is the next KS up

Project: ELITE is CMON's next Kickstarter campaign coming later this year. This is a brand-new edition of the critically-acclaimed game from Artipia Games. Combining the frantic real-time dice-rolling and tactical gameplay of the original with updated art, components and graphic design, this new version of Project: ELITE will prove an intense and heart-pounding experience for all players.





Might have to pick it up just for the minis as I have the SW:AoS rules for them. I see Vokker's (or whatever he's called now) weapon has been redesigned just as well as the original was too thin to transfer to PVC. The minis would probably also be useful in Zc:Invader - crossover perhaps?

I find it charming a game that failed because of the models despite a really good system and the models that failed because of the system despite them been really good models (ok its more complicated in their case) are combined into one product.

They should be useful to ZcI more or less they are the models we all expected ZcI would have, if CMON is modestly intelligent one of the faux streachgoals will be datacards for ZcI

A great way to milk both this and Invader would be to have a crossover hero pack. Hell, toss some Xenoshyft crossovers in just for fun!

Same scale, same manufacturer, throw in a bonus KS exclusive figure... $$$.

You're welcome CMON.

We had a lot of fun with Project ELITE for what it's worth, despite the ghastly figures.

I hope for an online countdown/ app/ game tracker with dramatic effects for the timer.

Plus the big huge boss monsters should be quite impressive this time around- they were quite large in the previous iteration!

Trudvang looks excellent! I hope it's chock full of monsters and heroe minis.

Wacky Races seems like a great game for parents and kids. Or those of us old enough to remember the show.

Is Munchkin Dungeon a miniature based Dungeon crawler game with the Munchkin theme? I hope it's not just a bunch of cards, that's what the original game already is!
