About

* More Homeworlds--France, Italy, Serbia, Austria-Hungary, Ottoman Empire, Roumania--coming in future expansions!

Each Homeworld has unique Troops, Planets, and Development cards.  See Winston Churchill, Sgt. York, Ip Man, Lawrence of Arabia, and many others--like you've never seen them before!

The game takes about 1 hour to play if you've played it before.  It consists of 205 playing cards, 5 oversized reference cards which also double as Victory Point trackers, 100 resource tokens used to pay the cost of the cards, a rulebook and a very atractive container.  Worlds War One is a complete game system--the cards and resources were developed for the main game, but I have also developed several mini-games which can be played with all or a subset of the cards and resources, making Worlds War One infinitely replayable!  We are recommending 10+ in terms of age, but my 7 year-old-daughter Sofia has been playing this game since we started developing it, and she has won her fair share of interstellar duels! 

One of the best parts about WsW1--it appeals to gamers and non-gamers alike!  Haven't we all had a favorite game we wanted to share with a non-gamer, who looked at the tabletop full of miniatures, the reference cards with 10,000 rulesets on them, the rulebook which outweighs Anna Karenina, the changing board tiles and components that look like it takes an advanced degree in astrophysics to play, only to watch as their eyes glazed over and they politely declined?  WsW1 was intended to be like 5 player chess--easy to pick up, minimal barrier to entry, but enough depth for a lifetime of play.

I am using facebook to tell the backstory of the WsW1 Universe:

Furthermore, I am currently in the process of creating some video tutorials on how to play the game, as well as filming an entire game from beginning to end ala Will Wheaton.  Please check back regularly for updates.

The game itself is 1 MAJOR REVISION AWAY (see comment section for more information) from being completed.  There are also a few minigames I'm still developing, but those can and will be released on an ongoing basis.  All we need are the funds to manufacture, warehouse, and ship. The quotes from various companies who provide said services are in the process of being received and reveiwed.

Thank you for taking the time to read this, and please understand, you're not only kickstarting a game, for all intents and purposes you are kickstarting my business as well! Jubilee Games is the company I created to own the Worlds War One brand, and I sincerely hope for the opportunity to continue to develop, manufacture, and provide artistic, engaging, rich, family-freindly but mad fun (90's super nintendo style) type games to the universe!

Risks and challenges

At Jubilee games, we stand by our products as being top-quality, but sometimes manufacturing issues do happen. Please contact our customer service with regard to any such issues within 90 days of receiving your copy of Worlds War One and we will work diligently to correct the issue.

For this project, since the game is completed, the majority of risk falls within the category of manufacturing and/or shipping deadlines.

Shipping issues are relatively uncommon, but they do sometimes occur, especially when shipping to destinations outside of the US. We will obtain tracking information whenever possible. We cannot guarantee that there will not be shipping problems, as we cannot guarantee the service and reliability of the various postal/delivery services involved around the world. You will have to assume that risk along with us.

Jubilee games is committed to keeping Backers notified by Updates about the status of this project. Any delays and or issues which may affect our project completion or timeline will be quickly posted and we will take immediate action to rectify.
