Fate of Akalon: Tribes (Canceled)
A 2-4 player card game that takes 15-30 minutes to play. It is easy to learn with quick and surprisingly deep tactical decision making.
Fate of Akalon: Tribes is a 2-4 player, 15-30 minute fantasy tactical combat card game set on the dying continent of Akalon. Featuring amazing artwork, players can choose between the Elf, Dwarf, Orc and Undead factions in a struggle for survival. The game features four 28 card faction decks and a color-illustrated rule book.
Each turn, players play a card with a combat value from their faction deck. Card effects can strengthen your combat value, let you play additional cards, or weaken your opponent. Make the right tactical decision based on your faction’s unique style of play to gain the upper hand. The highest combat value wins sending their opponent’s cards to the cemetery.
This is a fast-paced “play one, follow the text” fantasy card game. Do you like combos? We do too, so we put them in the game. Do you like gambling? Some cards let you take your chances for a big payoff. Do you like card drawing? Elves have you covered. Do you like offense? So do our Orcs.
For 14 years an ever-growing storm raged across the continent of Akalon. A hot scouring wind turned the center of Akalon into a barren wasteland. Forced to abandon their once vibrant cities, verdant fields, and lush forests, the races of Akalon fled north to seek a new home beyond the safety of the towering Kazak Mountains. The dwarves, since time unwritten, inhabited the Kazak Mountains and jealously guard that which they have. The Dwarves do not welcome these newcomers to their lands and fight to turn them away. Meanwhile, the migrating races must compete for the limited resources of the habitable lands north of the mountains. A constant war of survival rages between these desperate tribes and now strange magic has raised the dead, who seem intent on nothing but destruction. Welcome to Akalon…
This is the first game from our company, Foursight Games. We spent the last year rigorously play testing, designing, and revising Fate of Akalon: Tribes. We worked with several artists who brought Akalon to life with stunning original artwork.

We thoroughly researched expenses related to creating a new company and a new game. We already invested in the artwork and game development. Reaching our funding goal will allow us to manufacture and deliver Fate of Akalon: Tribes with the quality we want in a timely fashion. You can see a breakdown of our expenses in this chart:
One copy of the game includes four 28 card faction decks (Elf, Dwarf, Orc, and Undead) and game rules in a box large enough to hold all game components, even if you choose to sleeve the cards.
During the Kickstarter campaign, we will finalize the game files for the manufacturing process. Production lead times are 6-8 weeks after final proof review. We expect to ship backer rewards in March 2016.
The Skirmish level allows you to show your support for the game and get periodic updates on our progress.
The Battlefield level gives access to the full resolution color Print and Play version of the game, including the game rules.
The Tribal level includes one copy of the game. Add $22 to pledge per additional copy.
The Chieftain level includes one copy of the game (optionally signed by the game creator), a customized attacking player token, an electronic art book featuring select artwork, and your name in the credits as a producer. Add $22 to pledge per additional base game copy. Limit 50 rewards at this level.
Risks and challenges
Although this is the first project from Foursight Games, we have experience in business ownership, project management, and the gaming industry. We are well prepared to meet the challenges of production.
We are using a U.S. based manufacturer to ensure smooth communication.
To minimize production delays, the game files will be ready for the manufacturer at the conclusion of the funding campaign.
We will use an established fulfillment partner to ensure that the rewards arrive to our backers in a timely manner.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
