About

El Generale is a light wargame. Players are leaders of small countries, that want to reach a certain position on the international scene.

The main goal is to accumulate the most money at the end of the sixth turn of the game.

Every player starts with his own country, the same amount of money, people and the same infrastructure. And of course a handful of Generals for their army. During the game each player has to invest in the military strength (defense and offense), transportation and hospitals to see his country grow.

Attacking other players weakens their ability to generate money. But no one should forget about defense. Player’s army is made of people moved from different regions to the attack or defense formations. During the battle, there are Generals, that can lead soldiers by adding their strength to the army.

The other possibility to attack other players is to send the bombers. But bombs can be stopped by the AA missiles set in the attacked country.

El Generale is fast paced, and it encourages aggressive style of play. Although there is player elimination mechanic, there is also protection from being ganked by all other players.

Detailed info about Pledge Levels on the right.

First of all, we are board game players. We love playing board games, and we want to share this joy with you, by creating a really fun game. Together we have also established Taberna Vagantis Publishing, so we can publish our own games.

The only problem is of course money, that’s why we are here on Kickstarter. We want you to help us with fulfilling our dreams. And of course we want you to get a really fun game.

Mirek Talik, the main designer of El Generale beside being a gamer is a dedicated craftsman, who creates little and big wonders made of wood.Give him a chisel and a piece of wood, and he can conquer the world.

Paweł Klus is our main graphic designer. He is responsible for all those beautiful and funny pictures on cards.

Andrzej Kozakowski is our second graphic designer for El Generale. He is responsible for desktop publishing, and additional graphics. On top of that he is also a game designer (Alchemicus - published), and as we all, a boardgame maniac.

Adam Knyter is our UK support – he help us to exist on Kickstarter and he is dealing with all bureaucracy stuff in UK .

Well, all shipping costs, are already inside pledge levels. If you are wondering how much you will have to pay extra for delivering a game to you, the answer is: nothing.

But, please be careful, because some of the pledge levels are shipped free only to US, Canada and EU, and some worldwide. All of the necessary information are within pledge level description.

Risks and challenges

Almost the whole game is ready design-wise. There are some things that may be changed because of pledges and stretch goals. To be specific, these are backer faces on General cards and on player boards, and of course changing some cardboard tokens to wooden pieces.

The funding goal for El Generale has been set to ensure that we have enough capital to print the minimum amount of copies required with a reputable, high-quality game manufacturer.

The biggest risks to delivering the game by the deadline include:
-Unexpected product redesign due to regulatory, manufacturing quality or copyright issues
-Being held up in customs
-Being selected for random product testing
-Shipping and logistical issues
-Unexpected issues with our manufacturer or distributor
-Natural disasters / acts of God
