Lost Elements Expansion Includes: 7 Lightning Element Cards, 7 Metal Element Cards, and 7 Gameplay Reference Cards. Expansion cards will be 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 fun combinations. Remember only 7 elements should be used in any given game to keep gameplay balanced.

*Note* We have recently found that some print runs of the expansion card backs varied slightly in darkness to the original ones depending on ink levels at TGC. While this shouldn't affect gameplay too much we just want to let you guys know what we found. If the slightly lighter card backs may bother you please pull out your pledge or get a full new set as this should only affect old backers. Sorry for the inconvenience. Thank you.

Accolades
Joshua Lancaster (gad) - "This game is AWESOME, just got it in the mail. 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. Taking it to campus tomorrow to play with ppl... very portable and accessible. Awesome game. 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."

 Martin McCluskey - "Got mine in Scotland this morning! Impressed with the speed!"

Chris Breckenridge - "Received mine in Canada Friday. Great shipping and everything arrived intact. Thanks for the awesome game!!!"

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!"

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."

 Ahmad Khan - "Very cool man, very professional and commercial looking, great job. Man Guns and Maple Syrup!!!!"

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

Tucker T - "It was quite fun playing over the weekend. The game picks up and plays quite easily."

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."

 
We greatly appreciate all of our Kickstarter supporters! We can't do this without your help. Thank You!

Risks and challenges

Elemental Blast: The Lost Elements Expansion 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 gameplay to make it the best game possible, and we think you will love it.

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. We will be setting up a web page if we get fully funded so that people who missed out on the Kickstarter can still purchase the game.
