Use a mix of cunning and luck to sway the Village Elders of the Four Tribes to side with your Empire in a time of uncertainty!

About this project

In Four Tribes you take on the role of one of the two battling empires and you try to balance supplying desperately needed provisions to the northern villages and waging war with your sworn enemy! Will you be victorious?   

Four Tribes is a thrilling two-player* game that takes about 30 minutes to play! Four Tribes combines strategy, tactics, and luck into a fun, fast, and casual game that will be welcome on any gaming table. The mechanics are intuitive and easy to teach. Four Tribes makes a great game to take on trips, to the pub or cafe, or to play with your spouse at home at the coffee table! 

Four Tribes was born out of the love of good 2 player game design and inspired by modern classics like Lost Cities, Battle Line, and Balloon Cup!

*We are playtesting a 4 player variant right now. These variant rules will be included in the final instruction manual!

Build it! Play it! & Then Back it!

To The Table Preview

 Copies of Neptune include all KS stretch rewards!

 Copies of Zogar's Gaze include all KS stretch rewards!

 Copies of Neptune and Zogar's Gaze come with all KS stretch rewards!

 Stretch goals are our way of saying thanks for your support! When we over-fund, we are able to create more copies of the game. When this occurs, the price per copy drops and this saves us money. It is only right to pass these saving on to you, the backer! We do this by adding additional rewards!

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 4 successful campaigns for Plague The Card Game, Zogar's Gaze, Tasnia, and Neptune. We feel that this experience gives us a good advantage if and when any issues arise.

Tasnia hit port in the U.S. on the 30th of December and is in customs now, with shipping likely to begin early to mid January.

Neptune Proofs have been approved in both digital and physical forms and manufacturing is under way.
