'The First Step On CALAS' (CALAS) is a strategy game for 2-4 players. Unlike traditional 'roll and move' games, CALAS has 32 different characters with unique stories and skills that are played along with 14 kinds of strategy and dice cards. Each player takes on the role of a leader in the competition of becoming the King of CALAS. Various armies and cities must be built, battles are fought, and resources must be collected in order to score the highest victory points to win the game!
Enter the World of CALAS, You will be the next KING!
GOAL OF THE GAME:
Be the ultimate leader who defeats all challenges to conquer CALAS and bring it to eternal peace and prosperity. It requires not only skill and wisdom, but also ingenuity and courage to win. CALAS is great for those who like to strategize and put their creative minds to use, breaking through reality to become the KING of CALAS!
Each character has its own special and unique skills that improve your chances of winning the game by:
• adding and improving dice results
• gaining additional resources
• obtaining special powers
A character's skills can accumulate during fights. The more characters you have will significantly improve the chance of winning a fight when played wisely.
You can use your strategy cards during both your turn or another player's turn. The cards can be used to significantly change the situation of the battlefield to your advantage when played at the right time!
If a player is dissatisfied with the numbers rolled, they can use the dice cards to change the outcome. Using these cards strategically can lead to higher chances of winning!

“The board was variable and modular in a way that it’s gonna be different for each play, keeping the game fresh”
“The honor income and the soldier income tokens make me think of credibility in the military, it’s thematic in that way. I really love the way to call the tokens ‘reputation’ or’ ‘legend total’ because as you do things that are worthy of honor to increase the reputation, then ultimately you win the game”

CALAS is a strategic and network building game for 2 to 4 players. Each player controls the leader of a faction. To win the game, you must be the first person to reach 60 points.
How it is played
In CALAS, there are two phases: Action phase and Income phase.
TheAction phase consists of the following steps:
Roll 2 dice and add the numbers. The result is regarded as the number of spaces that player must move on the building tiles.
There are three types of buildings:
1. Public buildings called “Guildhalls” -When a player enters a guildhall, the player will gain 2 Strategy cards. These cards enable the player to recruit characters, expand the faction; or Upgrade the cities.
2. Resource buildings: Villages and Mines - Occupied villages provide soldiers for the player’s team, whereas Occupied mines enable the cities to be upgraded.
3. Cities -Occupied cities provides soldiers and bonus Honor points. Given the importance of cities, the aim of each leader is to seize more from others but also cautiously guards their own.
Once every player finishes their turn, the first player takes the dice, starts another round and repeats the turn order.
Once four Action rounds are finished, the current Action phase is over. The game then proceeds to the Income phase.
Once four Action rounds are finished, the current Action phase is over. The game then proceeds to the Income phase. During this phase, each player may gain Honor points, soldiers and Development tokens. In addition, all the used Dice cards and Character cards may be used again.
When a player enters the city occupied by an opponent, the player has the choice of choosing one of 3 types of battles with different consequences. 1. Champion warfare. If the attacker wins, they take soldiers from the city. 2. An Honor fight. The winner gains Honor points as well as eliminating soldiers of the opponent.
3. A war of aggression. If the attacker wins, they will occupy it.
In order to win, players will need to seek alliances, make deals and cooperate to gain advantage without displaying their weakness or game plan. One needs to know when to attack and when to retreat. Each game is different and this is what makes it unique, interesting and challenging. It is a game of chance and wit and decision making. These are the best parts of playing CALAS!
There are multiple levels to this game. After getting used to the Basic Mode, one can try the Equivalent Resource Mode. Advancing each level will require more brainpower, wit and will bring more fun and intrigue!
Risks and challenges
We have successfully completed our “pilot testing” over a period of 16 months. We invited a multitude of board-game enthusiasts and professional players. The CALAS team received both positive and constructive feedback from them. The team has actioned on them and have consistently made improvements. We are now confident in the concept, design, charm, and allurement of the board game. At this point, we are proud to say that the artwork of the basic game is about 90% completed.
During the development phase, the team has been working very closely with our manufacturers, and we have already produced the prototype of those plastic components, which we believe are at the commercial quality.
We are new to Kickstarter, but we are fully aware of the challenges and obstacles ahead. We are passionate about our concept and confident that we can tap into the huge board-game international market. Be assured that our team will work tirelessly to overcome any obstacles whatever they are, and learn from the experience to achieve our objective. We will present the best quality of the game to every enthusiast, like you.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
