 A year ago, we set out to design a game that we would love to play. As gamers, we wanted a game that would be engaging and complex, yet easy to pick up and start. We combined the direct combat of trading card games with the mechanics of deck building games. The result was Warring Kingdom!

Warring Kingdom is a 2-4 player card game combining deck building mechanics with risk management and direct player confrontations. You will play the role of a disgraced Lord fighting others to usurp the Crown. You must balance economic development with military maneuvers. The end goal is to demonstrate supremacy over your opponents by defeating one of them; the first player to destroy an opponent's castle wins the game.  

We have an exciting combat system that brings epic battles to you in the form of cards. Over the course of your game, you will turn your meager city into a hotbed of economic and military activities, hiring soldiers, building siege engines, grabbing civilians and sabotaging your opponents. You will be immersed in the gaming experience as one of the remaining Great Lords caught in War for the Throne. 

Every decision you make will be meaningful. You will tailor your strategy to what's available and to others' actions, taking a different path each time you play. The means may change, but the end is the same: overcome all odds and claim an opponent's castle.   

So put on your helm, pick up your spear, and challenge your friends to duel over the Crown of Eastmore... in the WARRING KINGDOM! 

The black-and-white Print and Play version of the game is freely available on our home page www.warringkingdom.com. You'll find artwork, game rules, print and play cards and much more!

Warring Kingdom has evolved with the help with many groups of gamers, especially the BoardGameGeek community. It is well-balanced with beautiful art work. Here are some independent reviewers' impressions of Warring Kingdom:

"Warring Kingdom is a game that NEEDS to be funded. It takes a proven concept - like a deck builder - and enhances it to the point I wouldn't want to play some of the older more established games in its genre."

                                                                                   - Rick, www.letslevelup.net

"Do you like the pure deck building mechanic of Dominion but find the minimal player interaction disappointingly lacking? Then get ready for Warring Kingdom.

You would likely enjoy Warring Kingdom if:
* You like deck builders
* You like competitive games
* You like direct player confrontation
* You like a balanced game where your actions have consequences
* You don't mind the randomness of dice rolls to control what units attack"

                                                                                                        -- secoAce 

You might have to change your plans a few times during the game depending on the draw. This forces players to constantly evolve their strategies. Warring Kingdom ends up being a very deep game.

...The game was a lot of fun to play. I enjoy the combat a lot in this game. I wasn’t sure how using dice to determine which columns attack would work, however, I was pleasantly surprised...

Warring Kingdom is a great addition to the deck building genre of games. This game is ideal for the veteran Dominion player that wants more direct player interaction throughout the game. Warring Kingdom has a plethora of strategies and tactics that will keep the game entertaining for a long time.

                                                                                  --Tyler, BoardGameQuest

"I liked Warring Kingdom quite a bit. I liked how you are never quite sure what you are going to get.. unlike other deck building games."

                                                                                      -- Bower's Game Corner

"Warring Kingdom has depth. I believe that a lot of deck builders tend to be on the lighter side strategically where I feel that I can pick it up and get an immediate sense of strategies and combos. Warring Kingdom is not like most deck builders. While there are cards that obviously work together, it is not as straightforward as other deck builders when it comes to implementing a winning strategy.

I recommend this game to anyone that is looking for a game with a good dose of deck building with a lot of player interaction, used in conjunction with tactical battles randomized through dice rolls. This game definitely is not a game that a person will master upon a single play. Even after a dozen plays, I feel that while I have a feeling for the game now, there is still a lot more to uncover."

                                                                                                    -- bbblasterfire

Some of the equipment you'll need
Some of the equipment you'll need

 Sample PnP Page...what oh what should I buy?

We’re a small group of gamers that really enjoy tabletop gaming. We really love tabletop games like Innovation, Pandemic, Munchkin, and Mage Knight, just to name a few. We also think TCGs are awesome, but we believe it is far too expensive to get competitive with TCGs. With Warring Kingdom you can build a unique deck each game without spending hundreds on booster packs.

Warring Kingdom has been play-tested, changed, play-tested, changed, over and over again. The base set gameplay is ready for prime time! The art is complete. Prototypes are created. Manufacturers are ready and waiting. Now all we need is you!  

 Your support will be used for

Your support will make this game legitimate! We asked all the gamers we met, and you all voiced your desire for high quality cards (matte and linen finish, anyone?). Hence, most of your backing will go toward high quality manufacturing. We have also budgeted for fulfillment, and shipping, to make sure you receive your game as soon as possible!

Estimated Cost: $25,000 total

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

We already have a manufacturer lined up and ready to go, the production process can start at the push of a button... that said, like all Kickstarter projects, we face the daunting task of delivering the game on time!

This is our first time working with this manufacturer. Shipping, customs, and fulfillment can all introduce delays. We have plans to mitigate these risks, and will keep an open, clear and honest communication with all of our backers on any potential issues. We are giving ourselves about 45 days of leeway by promising to deliver in April; if everything goes perfectly, we could deliver as early as end of February.

Thank you all for trusting us with this project, and we will do our utmost to deliver a quality game to your doorstep as early as possible!

FAQ

  • The Kickstarter exclusive box is produced in limited quantity, but is also smaller, designed to hold the base game itself. The retail version is larger and designed for shelf display, which gives it room for holding future expansions.

    Last updated:
  • The black and white print and play is always available on www.warringkingdom.com The full color one is available to tiers Farmer, as well as Strategist and above. This is done to limit access to the full color print and play; because it is identical to the production version, giving too much access could lead to copyright issues down the road.

    However, if you are pledging Archer and above really wish to have access to the full color version, you can add $15 to your pledge and have the full color print and play as an add-on!

    Last updated:
  • Sure. Starting with Warrior, we have:
