About

In Captain Midnight’s Treasure, you take on the role of a pirate on a ship that has just returned from a very successful raid and now it’s time to divide the loot in typical pirate fashion, with dice!

Captain Midnight’s Treasure is a family friendly, easy to learn, fast paced dice game that provides for challenging strategic game decisions in a fun environment. This game will test your knowledge of odds and probabilities, as well as help you teach them to younger upcoming gamers, as you decide when to push your luck and roll again, or stay with what you have.

First Mate Pledge Level (These Dice Are Mock Up's. The Ones That Come With The Game Will Be Engraved Acrylic)
First Mate Pledge Level (These Dice Are Mock Up's. The Ones That Come With The Game Will Be Engraved Acrylic)

You have 5 dice and 3 rolls to get as much treasure as you can. The game starts off by rolling the dice to determine the Swabbie. After that, each person rolls the dice, with the Swabbie going last, trying to get a Ship, Captain, and Crew, with the last two dice determining how much treasure you get.

But since you are pirates, it’s not going to be that easy! First, you have to make sure you get enough treasure to beat the Swabbie or else you have to pay him his dues. Then, certain rolls will cause you to lose your treasure or allow you to take treasure from other players, or even become Captain Midnight himself! The fun is nonstop with lots of laugh out loud circumstances. 

Captain Midnight’s Treasure is done, including over 400 play test games to make sure we got it right and all we need now is the money to manufacture it. In order to keep costs as low as possible, so we can get the game into your hands as inexpensively as possible, we need to buy in bulk. Without this money, there will be no game. To thank you for your support, we are offering several Kickstarter exclusives as well as a discounted price on the game. Check out the pledge levels for more information.

When is a dollar worth more than a dollar? Simple, when you use it to show your support for our project. The $1 pledge is VERY important to us, so please don’t feel like you are not helping. It tells us that although you might not have money now, or might not care for this particular game, you do believe in supporting independent game developers like us.

So along with our thanks, for your $1, you will also get an Impudent Mortal & Captain Midnight’s Treasure desktop wall paper and most importantly become a member of our community. You’ll receive inside information about our upcoming projects, as well as how you can get involved in the play test process. In a nutshell you will become an integral part in the development of our future games! See, that dollar was worth way more than you probably ever thought it was.

$15,000 Stretch Goal: Glow in the Dark Captain Midnight and Swabbie Tokens
Anyone who has pledged above the Gunner level will receive Captain Midnight and Swabbie tokens that will glow in the dark!

$20,000 Stretch Goal: Ivory Colored Dice

$25,000 + Stretch Goal: ????
You tell us what you would like to see! We are here to reward our fans so it only makes sense that we give you want you want! Just leave your thoughts on the comment page, we look forward to reading them. 

We have been doing a lot of research in order to make our Kickstarter campaign successful, and one of the stumbling blocks that we have found is the cost of shipping. So we’ve decided to try something different.

All of the non-shipping saver pledge levels will be sent to you using the US Postal Service.

We have not included any shipping costs for international shipping in the non-shipping saver pledge level. If you would like one of these shipped outside of the US, please contact us and we will make the best arrangement that we can to get it to you as soon as possible or, at the lowest cost that we can, your choice.

Shipping Savers: We have set these pledge levels up within the new Kickstarter guidelines to promote international interest in our project. However, if you are here in the USA and want order in bulk, we should be able to save you some money as well. 

The way this is going to work is simple. Pledge that amount and then when the project is funded, we will contact you and make arrangements to get it shipped to you however you want.

Why no shipping saver for the CAPTAIN Pledge Level?
The Captain Pledge Level is limited in quantity and at this time there is no way to tie the levels together. However, if you are interested in a bulk shipment, we will work with you. Just contact us and we’ll figure something out.

So how I estimate my shipping cost?
Go to whoever you want to ship them and set the shipping and get an estimate. The shipping will originate in Atlanta, Georgia ZIP Code 30519, United States of America.

GUNNER and NAVIGATOR weigh about 3 ounces
FIRST MATE weighs about 20 ounces
CAPTAIN weighs about 35 ounces

With that information you should be able to get an idea of the costs.

The Bottom Line
Handling the shipping this way is going to cause us a fair amount of work on our part, but if you’re willing to work with us we will do everything we can to make this as simple as possible.

Impudent Mortal is a startup company that focuses on all aspects of the non-video gaming community. Captain Midnight’s Treasure is our first game that we will be producing, but we are planning on future projects include card games, board games, table top miniature games, tactical simulations, and possibly even some terrain to go with all of it. Our company is made up of several people who have all kinds of skills ranging from business development, artist, game designers, and marketing. All said and done, we have over 100 years of combined gaming and business experience and are looking forward to giving back to a hobby that has provided us with so much fun.
