About

Stand and Deliver is a game of Highwaymen. Become the likes of the notorious Dick Turpin, the suave Claude Duval or the beautiful Catherine Ferrers.

You may form alliances with other players or strike it out for yourself, but be warned alliances between these knights of the roads do not last forever.

Start the game by selecting your highwayman. Then draw a number of coach cards equal to the number of players. Secretly pick which coach to rob then negotiate with other players at the same coach whether to share or fight for the spoils. If there are no other players then you rob the coach. But be warned some coaches are more heavily guarded than others or may even be an ambush.

Your goal is to amass as much loot as you can whilst avoiding the Red Coats and the Tyburn Gallows. 

Number of players 1-6

Minimum age 8+

Time to play 15-30 minutes.

Stand and Deliver has been in development for the last few years. In that time it has gone through much playtesting and changes, but has remained true to its core of being a fast paced push your luck game.

We have put our heart and soul into this game and have produced several high quality prototypes that are at this moment out for review.

The graphics are ready, the mechanics are ready. But we need to raise the funds to put this game into production. In order to do this we need your help.

We are looking for £12,000 which will cover the manufacturing cost and the distribution costs, so please help us get this game to market.

 This is what you get in the game 

  • 6 Character cards
  • 6 Wheels of fate decision cards
  • 6 small cloth loot pouches
  • 1 medium cloth loot pouch
  • 60 coach cards
  • 6 noose tokens to mark notoriety 
  • 18 tokens to cover up health points when shot
  • 1 rule book
  • 18 ability cards
  • 30 copper coins
  • 30 silver coins
  • 30 gold coins.

Some graphics from the game.

Here is some footage of a game in play, shot at the UK Games Expo in Birmingham UK on 1st June 2014. Sorry about the sound quality it was quite noisy there, but it gives you a view of how the game plays and the fun that was had playing it.

Risks and challenges

Whilst avid gamers of many years our lack of experience within the industry has thrown up many hurdles that we have had to overcome, are working to overcome and no doubt many others we are yet to encounter.

Once we had our basic concept and mechanics we needed to find an artist to give the game life.....this was thankfully a smaller challenge as we discovered a close friend and fellow game enthusiast to be an exceptional artist (I'm sure you will agree) and we quickly brought him on board.

Play testing is always a necessity and we were conscious that despite our own belief in our creation.....maybe we were missing obvious and less obvious problems...extensive testing by local gaming groups and blind play testing sessions at a local game shop along with final testing at 2014 UK Games Expo have allowed us to iron out the kinks.

Finding a manufacturer to produce the game and finding solutions for fulfilment/distribution along with delivery options and establishing readiness to ship/supply worldwide will I'm sure be an on-going challenge as I'm pretty sure new issues/solutions will continue to develop. We are happy that we have a manufacturer that understands our product, and confident in our logistics arrangements to fulfil pledges and demand.

The need to work independently of each other due to work/family/distance has somewhat made development more difficult as online/phone communication can limit the group dynamic. I think that this is something that has improved over time and has taught us many important lessons for our future planned projects.

We hope that you will be as excited about Stand & Deliver as we are. Believe in us, we wont let you down, because we refuse to let ourselves down.

Thank you very much for your interest and support - David, Julian, Andrew and our fantastic artist Toby...together we are Dark Blade Creations
