KickStarter : Rivet Wars

view on kickstarter

A new miniatures RTS inspired boardgame. Walking tanks, crazy artillery and cool characters battle in the trenches!

Rivet Wars is a miniatures boardgame that springs forth from the warped imagination of Ted Terranova – set on a world that never quite left World War I but with crazy technology like walking tanks, diesel powered armor, unicycled vehicles and armor plated cavalry!

Don’t let the cute visuals fool you, it’s a world full of angst, war-torn camaraderie and dark humor.

Unique mechanic

Rivet Wars is at its heart a strategy game, with both players deploying units each round to counter the threats set forth by their opponent and stay one tactical step ahead.

Heavily influenced by Ted’s experience working on RTS games like Rise of Nations, players gather resources (bunkers and capture points) and use these to deploy streams of new units!

There’s an ebb and flow on the tactical landscape and you can stock up surprises for your opponent to be unleashed even as he thinks he’s winning!

Great looking models

Here are some painted shots of the models as well as scale comparisons. Note that the game does not ship with painted figures.


Unique tank upgrades

Each tank has a small turret which can fit character models that will give the tanks buffs or other modifiers. Don’t glue down the hatches!
