Read the reviews:

 "WarFields proves itself to be an entertaining little game that requires a surprising amount of thought." - Little Metal Dog Show

"The thing that's interesting about Warfields is that the terrain is separated out into six zones or fields. The game in addition to having the manipulation and play aspect from a card game also has this spacial element to it." - Giant Fire Breathing Robot

"The game is easy to learn, has plenty of hard decisions and makes for a fun time when you are looking to have a battle." - Board Game Quest

"[Warfields] is easy to learn, and you can pretty much jump right in and start playing"Drake's Flame

"WarFields is exactly the kind of tactical card game that I’ve been waiting for… easy to play and family-friendly card mechanics puts this game right over the top. This is one game that you’ll definitely want to check out." - Dad's Gaming Addiction

"I had a blast with WarFields... It is surprisingly deep. There is a lot of strategy here." - Bower's Game Corner

"WarFields has a very interesting battle mechanic, and it's this very thing which prompted Games & Tea to throw their lot in and try to get this game completed." - Games & Tea

"If you seek a game that’s easy to learn, provides a host of decision-making choices every turn, and still has the possibility of anyone being able to win, check out [WarFields]" - The Cardboard Republic

  • There are 55 unique cards, but a total of 144 in the core set.
  • Six field cards to mark the battle field.
  • The rule book; with rules that are easy to learn without compromising a game of great strategy. 
  • Twenty-five tokens for damage and ailment counters.
  • One die to add a little variety to the game. 
  • The bag to put all the tokens and die in. 
  • And altogether a game that is fun to play!

You start out with one King card, one Knight card, and one Worker card. The King is your most important character. If he dies, you lose the game. The Knight is the first member of your army. You will build more characters and creatures to your army, but you'll need gold for that. The Worker brings in gold every turn. And the more Workers you have, the bigger your budget is each turn.

Your army will progress across six fields of gameplay, battling through the army your opponent has built. You have one overarching goal: to take out their king; but don’t forget to protect your own!

If we go beyond our goal, we will upgrade various game parts for our backers, Deluxe Level and up!

First: the option of customization. The game comes with everything you need, but if you want to make it unique to you, it can do that too. We will have future expansion packs if you choose to customize your game to whatever you like. There will be no rare and ultra-rare cards that you have to buy dozens and dozens of booster packs for. That's a ploy for you to spend lots of money and we won't encourage that.

Second: is that two players draw from one deck. What that means is your opponent won't smoke you with their perfect deck they've spent hundreds of dollars on. Also, only one person needs to own a deck for two people to play.

Third: is the fielding. There are six fields in the game, and progression across them is a principal part of the game. The beginning fields are far away enough to allow each player time to build their army without being attacked right away. This also eliminates the need to create a rule preventing characters from attacking on their first turn.

Beyond Goals: We want to hit our goal early so we can start working on the Beyond Goals. The Beyond Goals will make your copy of the game the best it can be.

Money-Back Guarantee: If you decide you don't like WarFields within the first month of receiving it, you can return it for a full refund, no questions asked.

You Come First: Each backer is important to us. For WarFields, that means you'll get your game before the official release date. We will also always be completely honest and transparent with you.

We Want Your Passion: We are passionate about seeing this project become a reality and we want you to get involved! If you have any advice or skill you think we can use, please let us know.

Self Sustaining: We don't want to have to come to KickStarters every time we start a new project. When WarFields hits the retail market, the revenue will fund future game projects (that is unless you guys like exclusive game editions).

For Add-ons, you will need to manually change the $ amount of your pledge (but not the reward level), and after the project is over, you can indicate the add-on you're receiving on the post-project survey. Add-ons can be added to any reward level.

Beta Card - $5: A card from the unreleased beta version with option of designer's signature on card front.

WarFields is in need of artwork. Though Chris is an artist of sorts, digital painting is one skill he has yet to master. The funds raised will help pay an artist to create epic pieces of art for each of the cards.

Funds will also go to purchasing inventory. Getting the most at the lowest price not only makes it readily available to a wider audience, but also drives down the retail price.

Just because the KickStarter ends doesn't mean we won't keep connected with everyone. We will post updates as they come, both here and on our blog: Menaveth.com. We also have plenty of games in the works and we don't want you to miss out on them!

Risks and challenges

This is my first Kickstarter and it's been a huge learning process. I've learned about manufacturing, shipping, fulfillment centers, and even social media.

I've been in contact with the manufacture and I am confident in their ability to deliver a quality game at a price no one can beat.

Everything is planned out, but that doesn't mean everything will go as planned. If a problem arises with the manufacture or during shipping, I will tackle them head on and let you guys know what is going on. I'm also open to suggestions if such a problem happens.
