Giant Fire Breathing Robot "While each individual part of the game is simple to understand, it comes together in an impressive gestalt that lends itself to clever play and interesting strategy" --GeekInsight

Grey Elephant Gaming  "The combat system in this game is a bit ingenious and I really do enjoy it." -- Tim Norris

"What I like about this game is there is no dice to roll, with the combat system you can look and tell what is going to happen ahead of time" --Carmen

And my favorite quote from the review "I think you cheated" -- Tim speaking to Carmen after getting defeated.

GMS Magazine  "I would DEFINITELY play this again" -- Michael "I agree...two out of two gamers approve this game" -- Max

Cardboard Jungle  "Kingdom is an interesting card game that requires strategic planning and thorough balancing of management with regard to a player’s turn." -- Matt Soares

Tabletop Gaming News  "Kingdom is very tactical. There’s a fine juggling act you must perform with the Angels you play.." -- Jason Koepp

Initiative Tabletop "Managing all of these factors as well as your Power makes for a game that is not only challenging and strategic, but fun and very re-playable." -- Kae Hutchens

"I want to play more! Its a fun game, it plays quickly. Definitely worth the time invested in play time.The ability for “shenanigan-ry” is insanely fun, and there’s a nice element of strategy in it." -- Raine

Risks and challenges

The game has been play tested in Indianapolis, Atlanta, Nashville, and Dallas. Kingdom is a finished, polished game with all the digital print files ready to be sent to the printers as soon as the project is funded. All we need is the money to start publishing it. But there is work still to do. Even though the game has been designed, thoroughly tested, and all the art has been created for it, any stretch goals that the project hits needs to be created and set for print, as well as working out logistics, warehousing, and fulfillment.

We have figured out the costs and have worked it, so that we can offer you the cheapest price yet still make it a viable venture, and keep the components high in quality. Black Locust Games is a small team of 4, and we want to be smart in our planning and expectations. We want to be transparent in our communications to you, the backers. We want you to share our project victories with Kingdom as well as be aware of any obstacles that the project is facing. We are ALWAYS open to any suggestions and feedback as this project would not be possible without you. There are a lot of pledges to fulfill, plus add-ons to manage. With that being said, we are working with a great manufacturing company that has shipped successful Kickstarter projects in the past and we have full confidence that we can deliver the game to you in time. In any case, we will be happy to refund pledges if for some totally unforeseen reason the game can't be delivered at all. Since the game is 99% complete (not including stretch goals), we don't regard this as too likely.
