game set up

Like the players who play them, Legacy games 'remember' what happen from game to game. Player choices have irreversible impact on the game world as the game board changes, cards are modified and sealed packs are opened revealing twists and turns in an epic storyline.

SeaFall is the third Legacy game designed by Rob Daviau. It was preceded by Risk Legacy and Pandemic Legacy Season 1. Both were important and acclaimed games whose innovation and scope sent ripples through the board game community. Now, for the first time ever, Rob has built a world and game from scratch around the Legacy idea.

Since SeaFall is played in a long campaign, it is recommended that your playgroup stays as stable as possible, with you plus 2-4 friends experiencing the story and adventure together over 15 or so games. The game rules contain contingencies for when players occasionally need to miss a game, drop out or join in.

Click here to pre-order SeaFall: A Legacy Game from the store today! To make your adventure that much more epic, SeaFall pre-orders come with over 100 upgraded metal coins to replace the coins that come in the box!


The above image is a mock-up. More details on the coins forthcoming in a news article as soon as we get the physical samples in.

SHIPPING: All US orders of $100 or more at come with free shipping. Currently our pre-order totals in the EU have surpassed what we expected to fill from the EU. Special Mail shipping is down while we look into possible alternatives.

Note: Ahead of pre-orders shipping, know that a limited number of copies will be sent directly to Gen Con. These copies will be entirely separate from the pre-orders of the game, and we will not be offering a pre-order pick up at Gen Con. While this isn’t our preference and we’d like the pre-orders to be shipped prior to the show, we can’t guarantee their arrival prior to the time of the show.

Ahhhhhhhhh! My game group and I have been eagerly awaiting this game for what felt like forever! We loved the unknown elements of risk legacy. We are quite excited and eager to give this game a playthrough.

Finally, was beginning to think Daviau had lost interest.

Hm... tough decision for me. Really want this game... but I'll be heading to college right after it comes out, and will have to find a new game group there before I can play it. I could wait to buy it... but those coins...

Does anyone knows what exactly "European Union orders that include just 1 single copy of SeaFall ship from within the EU at a special rate." means? I need at least rough estimate how much that may be...

You can add it to your cart and put in your address to see, no need to input payment first or anything. It varies by your location. It'll be the "Special Mail" option.

Dear Joe,
How can I update my pre-order for the Second Summoner Bundle and add the SeaFall pre-order so that i can get some relief on the shipping?

Thank you!

Hi PlaidHatGames!

I was going to order today after seeing the special 23$ rate shipping to Europe. It seems like you removed it. Will it return to the pre-order page?

Hi, this looks awesome! Is there any way to add additional items from the store to a European pre-order and still take advantage of the special shipping? I'd love to add some Ashes expansion decks, but shipping and customs from the US are prohibitive.

Or will it be possible in future Ash expansion pre-orders [to add older, already released decks, and still qualify for the special shipping rates] ?

I really really want to order SeaFall and came onto the site tonight to do it, to find you suspended Special Mail to the UK. Really unhappy :( I don't feel that $75 shipping for a $79 game is fair so please please sort out the Special Mail shipping situation. I want to pre-order from Plaid Hat so I get the metal coins.

I have download the rules,
Study and study again and again ...

My first impression : I have understand very well the game although I am not at ease in english.
The rules are very well explain, easy to get the game play and I think easy to explain.
a lot of components but easy to understand ..
nothing new int the mechanics but very fluent.
Of course I didn't read the captain's booke with all the items and the history but I hope it will give us narrative feelings,

Great game , I hope ,

NinjaKnight commented:

As somebody who knows very little about seafall other than its elongated development period, and it's Legacy format nature. I have a question that may influence my potential purchase(s) of this game

1. Does this game ask you to make irriversable changes to the components as Risk Legacy does? I like to be able to play a game many times over the years, and While it is cool to look back and remince over the good times had on a "completed" gameboard, I'm not to peachy keen on the idea of dropping another $100 (Or less if I pre-order extra) To start the game with a new group. Any news on this?

There are irreversible changes, like Risk Legacy, yes.

Like the guy from the UK I find it impossible to preorder a game I really want when postage is the same as the game itself. I am in Japan.

Austria here! I'll join my fellow posters above from outside US, will there be another (cheaper)possibility to get this sent to EU/Asia/etc? Looking forward to it!

Helo commented:

I'd like to pre-order both The Long Night and Seafall to get the free shipping but it says the pre-orders won't be sent until both are ready. Are they expected to be released at a similar time, I'd hate for one to be released at the early end of the 2-5 month window and the other at the tail end
