About this project
What does brewing and building one’s own Beer Empire mean? To some it is just business, a way to earn money and increase the value of their company. It’s a liquid which lets you achieve your business goals and turn ideas into money. To others it is passion, commitment, discovering new flavors, aromas and colors. It is some kind of alchemy that gives you the opportunity to stimulate the reserves of creativity and independence hidden deep inside of you...
But is there a truly right way to build your own Beer Empire? No… And you are not going to find it in this game either… Building the best Beer Empire requires focusing on several game elements at the same time and choosing the right strategy to achieve the goals you have set. Finally, the biggest Beer Empire will only be created when you combine the passion for brewing and the love for beer with business calculation, commitment to winning the most important markets, and a wise choice of the most suitable strategy.
There is nothing to wait for then! Take your aprons, agitator rods, bags of malt, baskets full of hops… It’s time to open your own brewery and develop some unique recipes. It’s time to build your own Beer Empire!
Well, some people are simply masters at explaining rules and showing how to create your own beer from all the resources you can find in Beer Empire.
So we’d like to invite you for the rules explanation of Beer Empire, with our Main Brewmaster Kuba Polkowski from polish game blog: Board Game Girl.

In an effort to meet the wishes of gamers from Poland as well as the tradition of our cooperation with the Polish crowdfunding platform Wspieram.to, we are launching there another project related to this one.
We have decided to create an opportunity for Polish backers to join you in the effort of backing this game. As soon as the game on Kickstarter and Wspieram.to gets funded, we will connect the collected amounts.
What does it mean? The sum collected there will be displayed here and added to the sum from Kickstarter, which will result in reaching the subsequent stretch goals faster. So after reaching the main goals Polish Backers will be added to Kickstarter.
We know that this game can be created only thanks to all Backers support… So guys you all are essential to this campaign, and the game will only exist with your support.
- Backers and their opinions are very important to us! Your involvement motivates us, and we are here to listen to your opinions and ideas. We will try to answer each and every question in the comments or by private message! We will also try to create a unique mood here, like it was during our Exoplanets and Multiuniversum Kickstarter campaigns.
- You will receive free add-on to your pledge: It will be available after Kickstarter in our webstore and our main partners and during special events, like Spiel, UK Games Expo, GenCon.
- You will be among the first. You are our fan and backer, and we value your time and support, so we will do all that’s humanly possible to ensure that you receive your game at the beginning of second quarter of 2017, of course before it will be available in North American or worldwide distribution – you will be first players with this game in your hands!
- You will have the possibility to get all the stretch goals and Kickstarter exclusives!
- The Kickstarter add-ons won’t be available in retail for free.
- You are helping us to reach the worldwide market! Not only European but worldwide! Thanks to you and your support, our game can reach players all over the world!
Stickers as a add-on!
Size of this stickers will be 5x4cm and we will add 8 caps stickers (2 in each player color) in diameter: 2,3cm.
Add-ons are in two variants:
First - LITE for $2- files prepared for print and you can do it all by your own. Second - FULL for $4 - we will print it and add to your copy of Beer Empire game.
How to get them?
Just increase your pledge by $2/$4 And everything else will be done at Pledge Manager
What add-on can you expect for free in all pledges?
What lots of people asked for: an additional beer tile along with 2 extra market tiles and a new beer reviewer. This Kickstarter add-on content will be a new punchboard that all backers will receive along with the funded game.
Shipping costs for economic tracked postage takes about 4 weeks to ship worldwide.
Since all parcels will be sent from Poland, shipping price for backers from this country will be half of normal price.
Please note that shipping will be paid after the Kickstarter campaign ends, from the Pledge Manager. Prices are not final and might slightly change in the Pledge Manager, depending on how many stretch goals we will unlock.
Estimated shipping costs for:
USA - $13 (for single game)
Canada - $17,5 (for single game)
Europe - $9 - $15 (single game and main destinations)
And one more important element here
Well, we know that there is a lot of time till UK Games Expo in 2017... But if that can help and eliminate your shipping costs, we will bring your Beer Empire to Birmingham and you will be able to pick it up there - it's really up to you :)
* We have decided to open this stretch goal in level of 85% of main goal to give you guys a chance to add now this small, extra paid add-on - only $5 and it can help us to reach the main goal a little bit faster.
* Free add-on - it won't be extra charged
Of course we are preparing more cool stuff, but we will publish it after reaching first stretch goal :)
Board&Dice Publishing, or as we like to call ourselves the BaD Team, is mostly just three geeks fully dedicated to games, we publish only what we love.
Board games are not only an idea for business to us, they are mainly a passion, that enables us to develop personally and explore our limitations in several areas at the same time. Since we are a small publishing venture we have the privilege to publish only the games that we find interesting and that drive our inner geeks.
To put it short—we can publish games that fascinate us. Just like it was with the Beer Empire first edition or Dice Brewing which reflected our love for brewing, it’s also the case with Exoplanets which reflected our huge interest in the cosmos, the typical area of “science” or mechanisms governing the universe. And of course Multiuniversum was just as cool and we loved the mechanics and had crazy idea for a theme.
You should also know that it isn’t our first Crowdfunding campaign. We have carried out a successful campaign for Exoplanets and Multiuniversum Project: Cthulhu on Kickstarter, but also an international campaign for The Curse of The Black Dice game held on a Polish crowdfunding portal. We’ve got experience in carrying out international projects, so we can assure you, that the games will reach your hands without delays.
We are fully invested in every title we publish, not only in terms of promotion or production, but we also support authors in the optimization and perfection of their ideas.
The staff Board&Dice consists of three positively crazed individuals. BaD Squad core is:
We’re three geeks from Poland with heads full of ideas for compelling and out of the ordinary games.
Joins us in this project! In our team you can also find great guy, who are doing for us all those beautiful arts and layouts - Paweł Niziołek.
Risks and challenges
As Board&Dice we have experience in international sales and delivery of games to Europe, North America and Asian countries (distribution of the Dice Brewing, Exoplanets, Multiuniversum – and many other games, we are selling in our web store). So we can assure you that after the period indicated in the campaign your backed games will be delivered into your hands.
Multiuniversum Project Cthulhu is almost finished in gameplay and graphical design. It is also in testing process here in Poland and with the authors test groups in Germany.
We were working hard on this game and thatʼs why we believe that Beer Empire is well designed in every tiny detail and the only thing left is the production and delivery of purchased items.
In order to guarantee the highest quality, we decided that the game will be printed by one of our most important partners which has been operating on the international market for a long time and guarantees the proper engagement and support for us.
Additionally, weʼve already executed a plan of logistics for deliveries and have acquired a International Partner, who allows us to deliver packages worldwide. On the other hand, Europe and North America is the area in which weʼre successfully executing deliveries of games to our partners, shops or directly to players buying items from our online shop on a daily basis.
This long description is our way to tell you that the campaign and game itself is well prepared and weʼve already spent several long months working on it. „New” Beer Empire was on our agenda for the last 2 years...
If you have any questions for us or have any doubts then donʼt hesitate to contact us. Weʼll answer every question.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
