We have prepared the action animations and sent the Kraken prototype to some of our favorite YouTube reviewers. See for yourself how the colorful kraken fleet looks on the table and watch an overwiew of the most exciting situations - the Kraking rulings, the pirate immunity, various kraken tentacle tricks and more!
Kraken Ataken setup takes just a minute and you're ready to play! Each player receives 2 kraken cards in their color and 4 tentacle cards. Now you can start plotting!
Send your kraken to battle and make it stronger by putting the tentacle cards underneath. The tentacles' power will be hidden from your oponnents! But a smart kraken will be able to estimate the power by looking at tentacles' colors.
Trick your oponnents and send them into dangerous currents before the battle starts. Here you can see that a card was used to switch the pirates. Now the enemy kraken is facing a pirate immune to orange tentacles!
Once the ambush is prepared, the battle with the pirates begins. And multiple krakens near one ship will fight each other first! All the tentacles are revealed and the powers are compared. Only the strongest will get the treasure!
The battles can be affected in dynamic ways. Save tricks up your sleeve until the end to secure your victory! Play positive effects during your battles or negative effects during opponents': deduct power or even cut off their tentacles!
Become the wealthiest kraken and get crowned the Kraking for good! The most efficient way to do so is by collecting sets of identical treasures... or making sure that other krakens won't!
Have you noticted that pirate chests always containt more precious treasures that they have room for? The coins are always overflowing, the golden necklaces are hanging out. The pirates are suprisingly bad at estimating how much treasure will fit in their chests.. they have a pretty bad depth perception.. It must be because of the eye-patches!
Due to new Kickstarter policy, when you back this campaign the shipping fee will be added to your pledge. The stated shipping fees are the maximal predicted costs for each region. If the shipping prices will drop (thanks to a large amount of orders), the $ difference will be added to your pledge manager account. You will be able to spend them on extra add-ons and products.
We guarantee friendly shipping to US, EU and Canada. We promise full assistance and everything we can do to ensure unproblematic shipping to everywhere in the World.
Important notice: All extra payments in the pledge manager after the campaign will be collected through PayPal only.
Risks and challenges
If you are reading this section, we know you are seriously considering supporting Kraken Ataken. We have overcame all kinds of different obstacles in our previous campaigns and been able to still deliver all our backers quality products in a great kickstarter exclusive price. By now we have experience in working with manufacturers, shipping agents and custom agencies all over the World.
Our main goal and challange in this campaign is working on the delivery time. The production of this game is already agreed upon with the manufacturer, will all graphic files ready and miniatures' 3D models prepared for forming. If, by pledging to this campaign, the Kickstarter backers and gaming enthusiast will decide that this is a project worth funding, we will start the production of the game even before the campaign ends, aiming for the express delivery of the finished product!
This is possible because the Kraken Ataken and its contents are ready for over a year. To be fair to our backers, the release of this game was on hold until all our other Kickstarter obligations were fulfilled. This time has finally come. Currently, the shipping of all the rewards from our previous campaigns is complete. The only cases in which someone would not have their rewards are never finishing an order in the pledge manager or a shipping return. We want to make sure that everyone receives what they ordered, so at any time contact us at email@example.com and we will be happy to help you right away.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
