Dwarven mines have always been the seen of bloody territorial disputes. Take your miner team and gain a superior position with teamwork, barricades, and hired pawns. Of course the main goal of any true dwarf is attaining gold. Simple at first glance, but the complexity is endless as your dwarf team must use teamwork to control the board. 

Be part of Foust Kraft's first board game launch and own this unique pub style strategy game. We are a small shop with big ideas. 

It's solid wood design and handcrafted finish give it that quality look you don't see with flimsy cardboard games, or cheap laminated particle board. Gold is the game you leave out on the table to stir up conversation or show off your interest in quality game play. It is the game that peaks the interest of the older, chess loving generation, as well as the younger quick-play gamer. Game play is usually anywhere from 5-20 minutes, making it perfect for casual play, or when you just don't have time to dedicate your entire day.  Each Player controls 3 miners that are trying to accumulate more Gold than their opponent. The first player to acquire 3 of the 4 Gold pieces, at the same time, wins the game. Along with your miners, each player can accumulate 2 pawns and 2 barricades each during game play. Players use these pieces to explore the board, collect the gold, defend their base and retreat paths. Each type of game piece has it's own movement and ability rules. With all the rules fitting onto a single sheet of paper, Gold is easy to learn and fun to play.

All pieces are stored conveniently inside the game box for easy storage and quick clean up. The possible strategies for success are nearly limitless. As a pure strategy game, you never have to feel the frustration of counting on luck. You have all the power for success in this game. 

Each game is handmade by me with top grade wood, and is quality tested before it leaves our shop. The pledge price covers the cost of materials and helps absorb some of cost for the tools we purchased to make this game. As we raise money we want to further invest it into our wood-shop. Our goal is to purchase more quality materials and branch out into the development of more games and high end wood products for others to enjoy!
