Stretch Goal #3

Posted by Albino Dragon (Creator)

Okay, so I know this is a horrible idea from a marketing perspective but I'd be very surprised if we didn't hit our second goal and holding onto this has been driving me nuts!

I had a custom die made that could be used to play a Genegrafter variation. The sides are not set in stone and please keep in mind that this is just a prototype. I'm looking into things like transparent colors and printing options to really bring this to life, but…

The idea is that for every battle, the attacker rolls the special die to have one effect:

  • Infinity Sign - Use any Ability Card as if you have the matching power
  • Lightning Bolt - Randomly remove a Character Card from play and put them in the Discard Pile
  • Recycle Arrows - Each player gives their Gene Pool to the player on the right
  • Skeleton - Take the top Character Card of the Discard Pile and put it directly into play
  • 2 person silhouette - You may attack with one other Character Card you control in Play
  • Draw - Draw an extra card
I originally thought it would be cool to have one red die and one blue die with different faces that each player rolls but I couldn't think of enough options that would apply to both. So if anyone has any suggestions for other ideas I'm open to my backers' wishes. 

Everyone at a pledge level of $30 and above will receive a free copy of the custom die when we reach $12,500.

If even half of the backers added one of the prints this would be enough to get us there. Just sayin' :-)

      Will we be able to add an extra pledge amount to get TWO of these for those of that will be getting more than one copy of the game? Thanks! So excited!!

      Great idea! I'd love to see the dice added. Here's my 2 cents: I believe this should be language dependent though. it should be easy to replace the word "Draw" by, say, a simplified deck of cards, à la "Carnival" (recent successful KS project) or Vassal icon? What do you think? Moreover, a "Lightning Bolt" evokes "Power Surge" or "Energy Boost" to me, not death, so perhaps a skull would be more appropriate. Furthermore, I while I like the dancing skeleton, it does not fit with the theme. How about a puppet on a string, or a simplified voodoo dool? Besides, the "2 person silhouette" symbol is not clear enough to me. I'd rather see, maybe a "X2" symbol or similar. Finally, the "Infinite" sign could be misread for an 8, but I suppose that's not a big deal. Hey, what am I talking about?! This is not my game ;-) Seriously though, I'd love to this dice added to the project, I've upped my pledge, so keep pledging people! ;-)

      A die with a dancing skeleton on it, who could resist upping their pledge, at least a bit, on the hopes of getting that?

      It's a variant, I'm sure you'll be able to play with it however you want (as long as you can talk your opponents into it :D ).

      I think that if one is forced to roll a die when attacking the effects should all benefit them; if there are effects that may detriment the attacker, it should be an option (a risk) to roll it.
