About

For the video introduction, click on the image above!

Hello,

Thank you for taking the time to check on my project! I am looking to fund the final art design and manufacturing of Valyrian Adventures. It is a hexagon-based tabletop game set in the realm of Valyria, not to be confused with the *city* of Valyria of Game of Thrones fame. The game is fun, easy to play, and is well suited for all ages. To keep it family friendly,  I have deliberately avoided using offensive and "brutal" words, replacing them with more neutral phrases. For example, when fighting an adversary in an encounter, I use the word "defeat" instead of "kill". 

General Info and Gambjectiv for 2-6 players, though definitely more fun when at least 3 are playing! Once set up, the game itself takes anywhere from 5 to 45 minutes to play, with most games completed around the 30 minute mark.

The objective of the game is to retrieve 2 items tasked to you by the Warden of Raventown (Raventown is one of 4 main cities in Valyria). The first player to retrieve their items and return to Raventown wins the game.  While roaming the Great Forest in search for their items, the players will run into different types of scenarios, referred to as Events. There are 4 different types of Events in the game; Encounter, Incident, Immediate Action, and Delayed Action. Some Events are positive, some negative, some hard, some easy, and some will literally change the course of a player's path! Encounters have their outcomes determined by a roll of the dice.

The game is fine tuned, and is extensively play tested with family, friends, and co-workers ages 8 to 60 with very positive feedback, so I feel confident it is a game most people will enjoy playing. I already have an expansion planned (The Raventown Caverns), which will be launched at a later date should this project get off the ground. The Caverns may either be played as a stand-alone game or over two tables (for the hard core tabletop gamers out there! ;) ). But, first things first! 

Again, thank you for your interest in Valyrian Adventures!

Box contents:

  • 1 Starter Tile (City of Raventown, 7 Hexagon large)
  • 56 Forest Tiles
  • 8 Item Tiles (Potions and Scrolls)
  • 12 Assignment Tiles
  • 12 Miniature Assignment Tiles
  • 4 Miniature Obstacle Cleared Tiles
  • 40 Event Cards
  • 6 Assignment Cards
  • 6 Player Pieces (Meeples)
  • 6 Character Delayed Discs
  • 6 Character Engaged Discs
  • 2 6-sided Dice
  • Rule Book
  • Cloth Bag

Panda Games will manufacture the game, and as soon as the financial backing is complete, the remaining items will forge full speed ahead!

Risks and challenges

Assuming I will reach my funding goal, the project *will* be completed. I have the artwork lined up, and given that the artwork basically consists of making my original artwork look professionally made, it should be a formality. On the manufacturing side, I feel confident that Panda Games will do a great job manufacturing my game. I have done my research, and they do come highly recommended. I guess the only challenge I can see, will be if there are unforeseen circumstances resulting in Panda Games being unable to fulfill the order, in which case I will of course find another manufacturer.
