  • We pledge to KS Backers that all backers, of any sort, who have paid in advance, will be sent their copies before any others who have not backed in advance. This means that you will be shipped your game before or at the same time as retailers who have backed via KS/PIP and paid in advance; and international distributors who have backed and paid in advance; and those who have backed on PledgeManager and paid in advance.

  • We pledge to you that, for a period of at least 90 days after the last of the scheduled shipments are made (pursuant to the pledge above) to any of those who have paid in advance for the game, we will only sell this game: 1) at full retail MSRP on our own Eagle-Gryphon website; or any other website--e.g. Amazon or eBay, controlled by Eagle-Gryphon Games; 2) at conventions which occur at the time of release of the game or within 90 days of the release of the game.

  • In other words, we pledge to do our best, within reason, to insure that you will be among the very first owners of this game and that you will have purchased this game at a price significantly less than you will be able to buy this game for at least the first 90 days after it is released to the public.

Before there was Infamous, Hassan Lopez created the world of Clockwork Wars. In Clockwork Wars, 2-4 players command a unique race of creatures in a brisk, tense war game set in an alternate universe where magic and steam-era technology collide. Take control of the calculating Purebreeds, the industrious Troglodytes, the mighty Rhinochs, or the proud Mongrels. Your goal is to vanquish your foes and accumulate the most victory points through seven turns of play. You earn points by fighting for control of territories that contain valuable natural resources. To win these battles, you need manpower gained by seizing villages and developing them into cities. Invest in research and discover astonishing new technologies, like Golems, Submersibles, and Analytical Engines. Position your troops, research powerful discoveries, employ espionage, and conquer your enemies to win the game!

Clockwork Wars features:

  • A modular map composed of hexagonal tiles and nine territory types (including manufactories, sorcerer's towers, and citadels) that allows for infinite replayability.
  • Four different races to choose from, each with its own unique units. Hidden and simultaneous unit deployment that provides constant tension. Short turns packed with tough decisions.
  • Simple, diceless combat resolution. A card-based espionage system. A unique "technology tree" that is different for every game.
  • Research discoveries in one of three different disciplines: Sorcery, Science, and Religion.
  • Light civilization-building mechanisms, as players upgrade villages into cities and research discoveries through three successive, historical ages.
  • Rules for either a "free-for-all" game or a 2 vs. 2 team game, where you and your ally combine forces and victory points.
