 The beloved table top card game is back bigger and better in its new remastered form 'Elemental Blast - Gold Edition'. Join in on the fun today and become a legend....

Cloak and Meeple: "A fun, fast card game where you use and collect elements to win. Simple to learn but has deep strategy once mastered."

The Gamers' Table: "The cards are all easy to read, with the abilities clearly marked, and the artwork really helps to evoke the theme of controlling the elements."

 During the game players try to be the first to collect a set of five of any one element. Use the elements of fire, lightning, darkness, and wind to disrupt your opponents' plans or use water, earth, gold, and light to get you the element cards you need for victory. 

 Long Ago... Elemental Sorcerers vied for power and control of the ancient realm. You take on the role of one of the last of these sorcerers as you strive to be the first to master one of the 7 elements.

Elemental Blast will include: 

49 Base Element Cards (7 of Each Base Element)  

7 Expansion Element Cards (7 Gold Element Cards)  

4 Wild Cards

1 Full-Color Set of the Rules of Play  

1 Set of Element Reference Cards

1 Game Box  (Most likely will be a tuck box to be possibly upgraded in a stretch goal if we reach enough backers)

+ Any and All Unlocked Stretch Goals

 Retailers: Message us for details on bulk rates and promotions.

The cards in the game are easy to read and simple to understand. Actions taken during the game are easily accessible on the bottom portion of each card. The base game comes with; fire, water, earth, wind, light, darkness, lightning, the expansion element of gold and wild cards. The Add On adds 5 more expansion elements to the game as well as an upgrade to the other items included in the box.

Expansion cards are interchangeable (similar to Dominion) where elements can be swapped out for new ones for different kinds of games. Suggested styles/modes will be given in the final rules but players are welcome to mix and match elements for many different combinations. However, for classic play, only 7 elements should be used in any given game to keep game play balanced.

 United States: shipping is included.  

Canada and Mexico: $5.00 for shipping.  

EU and Australia: $10.00 for shipping.  

Everywhere Else: $15.00 for shipping.  

(The Game! Pledge Tier should automatically proc your country's base shipping fee for you but please see below for additional shipping rates if you are adding any extra copies of the game to your pledge.) 

'Additional Copies' Shipping Rates:

United States: Shipping is included for any Add On items.

Canada and Mexico: Add $3.00 for shipping for each Additional Copy.

EU and Australia: Add $7.00 for shipping for each Additional Copy.

Everywhere Else: Add $10.00 for shipping for each Additional Copy.

Example: Justin would like to add (1) Additional Copy of Elemental Blast  to his pledge. He also would like the 'Lost Elements Expansion' Add On for both of his copies. He lives in 'Canada' and will be shipping the game to himself. When he pledges for 'The Game!' Tier for $20.00 + $5.00 for his shipping fee to Canada + $8.00 for his 'Add On' - He also needs to pledge an extra $25.00 for the Additional Base Game + Lost Elements Expansion 'Add On' + another $3.00 for his additional shipping to Canada. Justin's Kickstarter Pledge with shipping included for both copies would be $28+$5(Shipping)+$25+$3(Shipping) = $61.00 Total

Note: We do not cover any extra custom charges your country/post office may have so please check with them if you feel it is needed before ordering to see if there will be any fees.

Crinaya: "A simple game with a draw one, play one rule. It's quick, easy, and fun."   

Sod Tiwaz: "I liked this game quite a bit and our first endeavor which typically only lasts 2-3 games ended up being 5 or 6. We really enjoyed this game and I'm pretty comfortable saying that it will actually be pulled out somewhat regularly."  

John Schiavo: "A light but entertaining card game. While there is some strategy, a lot comes down to luck of the draw. Good for gamers, better for non-gamers. I plan on using it as a gateway game to bring people from games like Uno into the realm of light strategy."  

Joshua Lancaster (gad): "This game is AWESOME! Played it for a couple of hours with my girlfriend, haha. So much fun to decide whether to grow my hand or screw her over. Very portable and accessible. Tell your friends! They would love this."  

Phillip Ash: "I just got the PnP and I have to say you guys did a great job on formatting it. Out of all the PnP files I have received through Kickstarter yours was the only one I didn't have to reformat to print in an easy to cut fashion. Thanks again for taking the time to format this well."  

Justin Tonglet: "Just played Elemental Blast with my niece Caroline who is 8. WE LOVE IT! She is particularly fond of skipping my turn with the Ice element cards. She says it is her favorite game ever!"  

Mikhael Weitzel: "Just found our new favorite light weight, large group, filler/follow-up game. Elemental Blast plays fast, and fun! There is a great mix of stick-it-to-you cards and self-bolstering cards. Has a little bit of depth compared to other light card games. This is the perfect addition to our Friday night group where we start the night with a lengthy or heavy game and then move to a lighter game(s) until we are ready to call it a night."

 If we surpass the base goal we can strive to unlock some exciting stretch goals to add free extras to the game for backers of the base game. 

No surprise... You unlocked Surprise! This new element will be added to everyone's game who backed at the base game tier (7 Element of Surprise Cards Total per Game). For those of you who are very indecisive or just love to keep your opponent's guessing; Using the Element of Surprise in your play-style just may be your new favorite strategy to achieving victory. 

Adds a new expansion Element to the game.

Risks and challenges

Elemental Blast: Gold Edition is finished and has undergone tons of play-testing. Critics agree that Elemental Blast is a huge hit and will do well on your game table. We have continually balanced the game-play to make it the best game possible, and we think you will love it.

*Note* All artwork and formats have been upgraded and Elemental Blast: Gold Edition cards will not look exactly like the original game. In order to revamp the game properly we needed to make these changes. We will do our best to keep the card backs the same for veteran backers. Sorry for the inconvenience. Thank you.

We want to share this game with the world, but we need your help! The money you pledge will go towards production costs so that we can make more copies than we would be able to afford alone. Also, when you get your copy tell your friends how much you enjoy it.
