Our project honors the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn.
And with the Scottish Independence vote coming in September, will history repeat itself by pen rather than sword? Our project gives everyone some level on which to recognize Bannockburn's significance.
The game, Scotland Rising is a sharp fight that highlights the tactics of medieval battles on a crowded battlefield. Knights are powerful and hard to bring down. Pikemen are best in massed formation. Archers have ranged fire but must be protected. Ax men are vicious in a close fight. King Robert the Bruce and King Edward II lead their armies. Victory is old fashion medieval style, inflict damage on your opponent and relieve the castle siege.
The simplicity of the game allows the casual gamer to learn and play a strategic military history game quickly.
The game includes game box, heavy card stock game board, game counters, dice, rule book, and dice.
We also have a wooden block version of the game that has wooden blocks with labels and also includes the counter set.
STORY ABOUT THE GAME PIECES:
When we studied the Bannockburn battlefield we loved how interesting the area looks today.
Our Creative Director, Sean Cooke, came up with a great idea. He suggested that we use the actual battlefield as a backdrop for the game pieces. Our first thought was "Great, let's do it!" So below is of how your game pieces were constructed with the actual battlefield as the background by Sean:
STRETCH GOAL #1 KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE SCOTLAND RISING STICKER:
If we reach $6,000 in funding each Kickstarter backer that receives a game will receive a Scotland Rising sticker.
STRETCH GOAL # 2: THE BATTLE OF STIRLING BRIDGE
If the project reaches $10,000 in funding the Battle of Stirling Bridge will be included with each copy of Scotland Rising. William Wallace leads the Scottish rebellion in 1297 as the Earl of Surrey and his army force their way across Stirling Bridge to secure Scotland for the Crown. This goal includes a game board and rules for the battle.
STRETCH GOAL #3: THE BATTLE OF FALKIRK
If the project reaches $14,000 in funding the Battle of Falkirk will be included with each copy of Scotland Rising. King Edward I now faces William Wallace and his men across a burn and swamp.
STRETCH GOAL #4 KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE SCOTLAND RISING COIN:
If we reach $18,000 in funding each backer that receives a game will receive a metal coin exclusive for Kickstarter backers.
STRETCH GOAL #5 HARD MOUNTED GAME BOARD:
If we reach $21,000 in funding each backer that receives a game will receive a hard mounted Bannockburn game board with their game.
