Dig Down Dwarf is a fast-paced press-your-luck dice game that is also the winner of the Micro Game Challenge! 128 designs were entered into the contest and Dig Down Dwarf was unanimously picked #1 overall by the judges! The Micro Game Challenge was judged by board game critic Cyrus Kirby, who is better known as Father Geek, and by the podcast team at All Us Geeks. Here is what they said...

Dig Down Dwarf is a fast and casual game that is fun for all ages and all skill levels. Newcomers will be attracted to the easy-to-learn rules and press-your-luck mechanics, while skilled gamers will love the ability to alter dice rolls by spending gems. There is a bit of something for everyone, and the quick playtime and portability make it a great travel game and an outstanding filler game as well.

Your support will allow us to produce this great game and get it into the hands of people all over the world to enjoy! Kickstarter allows us to manufacture a high quality product that we can all be proud of. As an Indie Publisher we thank you for your pledge!

Stretch Goals are our way of giving back to you in the case that we over-fund! We are certain that our game will be great if we just reach our goal, but if extra funding comes in, we will put that money back into the game. The higher the funding, the larger our print run will be. A larger print run means each unit will cost less to manufacture. Instead of putting that extra money into our pocket, we will invest it into the game itself in creative ways!

Customize your pledge level by adding any of the listed items to your pledge. Simply add the dollar amount next to each item you want below to your pledge amount. You can make changes an existing pledge level by clicking on the "Manage Your Pledge" button above. We will send out detailed surveys after funding to gather the info needed to customize your pledge. Enjoy!

Risks and challenges

Our goal is to make a quality product and we understand the challenges of doing so. Our focus is to stay engaged with both our manufacturers and backers to keep everyone on the same page and informed. An informed backer is a happy backer.

If challenges arise, we will hit them head on. Sometimes an issue can cause a delay, and while delays are typically avoided, producing the the best product is always our end goal. Again, open communication with our backers is key.

All fulfillment will done in house via the use of USPS. We have our quotes from manufacturers in hand and all artwork outside of possible stretch rewards is done.

We also have experience with Kickstarter, having run 5 successful campaigns for Plague The Card Game, Zogar's Gaze, Tasnia, Neptune, and Four Tribes. We feel that this experience gives us a good advantage if and when any issues arise.

All of our previous projects have been shipped to backers with the exception of Four Tribes which is not due until September. Of the four projects we have delivered, three were on time, and only one had a minor delay. Again, we always keep an open line of communication with our backers.
