 About

The Valley of Alchemists is a family game for 2-4 players based on Set Collection and Pattern Building mechanics. Players manage resources to get the most cards in the right combinations so that they gain experience points. The winner is the player with the most experience points at the end of the game.

Go toe to toe with the other alchemists and gain fame, glory, and the title of alchemist of the year! With each elixir you concoct, you’ll learn new things, making it easier to find new ingredients to produce your next potions. Use magic to change the characteristics of your alchemical creations!

The Ghost Expansion allows for a 5-player game, as well as adding two new game modes! The first one - “Companions” - introduces direct player on player interaction as well as increasing the options available to players. The second game mode - “Dragon Contest” - introduces intense competition between players as they try to further their alchemy career while completing unique elixir sets which will award the highest-ranking player with a generous bonus.

We are a group of friends who share a great passion for board games. One day we simply decided to redirect the energy from our passion to the process of creation. The combination of our experience and skills gave birth to the game Galaxy of Trian, in which we give you a little piece of ourselves. We hope that the immensity of work, energy and time we have devoted to this project will be appreciated and that you will fall in love with our game, just as we did. And here you can find a few words about us:

Seweryn Piotrowski – team leader – The author of Galaxy of Trian: New Order. CREATIVEMAKER was established thanks to his passion for boardgames.

Andrzej Stolarczyk – main tester – He points out every mistake in the game mechanics or will find a winning tactic. Andrzej is our expert in the field of graphic fixes, and making prototypes for testing. Our company handyman. A fan of football and Dota.

Sebastian Oliwa – hunter – Co-creator of the first edition of Galaxy of Trian. Our creative dwarf. His specialty is finding new projects, organizing trips to events, testing and destroying prototypes, and getting on Tomek’s nerves. He writes all the text and comes up with the background story for our games. He adds ketchup to everything and is constantly on a diet.

Tomek Siwek – our social media panda – He is the one who answers your messages and keeps you informed of how the campaign is progressing. He loves cooperative games with a hidden traitor and usually spends his evenings playing board games. He takes care of the constant supply of coffee and cookies, without which we can’t work. Addicted to hashtags. #hello

Marcin Podsiadło – sales director – The newest member of our team. Responsible for contact with our retail partners. Designer of the board games Saigo no Kane, Crystalicum and Fantazja

Violetta Kijowska – editor and PR specialist – A beautiful pearl in a horde of ogres. She helped us with editing the rulebook. A big fan of euro games, she cooperates closely with other Polish board game publishers, offering her expertise in editing and testing games. She’s the co-creator of “Take a Train” and “Alien Artifacts”. She uses her personal charm to persuade reviewers to feature our game :)

Barbara Wiszyńska-Kubit – graphic designer – a creature of the night. Legend says that she was born with a Wacom pen in her hand. Got most of her XP in the video games industry. The Valley of Alchemists is her first board game (definitely not the last one). If you’re as in love with the looks of the game as we are, you’ve got Basia to thank. The last few months got her addicted to stamina potions so she could work 27h a day. We would advise you not to try this at home.

Marcin Halerz – videographer – How do you like our videos? He is responsible for the directing and editing. It’s the third time he’s helped us. We have the greatest respect for his work and deem it worthy of Hollywood!

Marek Vogelsinger – marketing specialist – Marek is our marketing ninja! He uses his skills to bring our project to the attention of potential supporters. He has over 9 years experience in performance marketing. It's thanks to him that many of you are here now, reading this, so we are very, very grateful to him.

Thanks to kick.agency for grate support and advice during the project creation.

Also big thanks to Awaken Realms - who done great job with 3d modeling of decoction bottles.

Risks and challenges

The Valley of Alchemists is our third project. We are definitely more experienced after the last campaign. We are committed to fulfilling all the promises we have given on the campaign, while always paying great attention to the quality of the final product. As you can see from our previous Galaxy of Trian: New Order campaign, we are constantly striving for the best quality at all times.

We will do everything we can to ensure that the estimated delivery date set for May 2018 will not change and that it will be final. Of course, it is always possible that some issues with production may arise, but for our part, we have taken every precaution to ensure that everything will go smoothly. The game has had a lot of tweaks and revisions over time and the tests have been ongoing for a year now to make sure there are no hidden mistakes in the game mechanics. In the near future you can expect to see new board game projects with beautiful graphics and neat components, so stay with us
