Don't worry, we'll verify everything in our pledge manager after the campaign. 

 Beasts: Edge of Extinction is a "take that" style game where up to 6 players assume the role of an ancient predatory beast fighting for survival in a chaotic world. Each game, players face an onslaught of catastrophic events, opposing players, and even a perpetually persistent T-Rex hungrily in pursuit of his next meal…you!

Each character has innate resistance or weakness to specific damage types – physical, heat or cold – and a unique special ability only usable once per game, so make it count! Players must choose how to use their action points to attack, obtain resources, increase resistance and attack power, or heal their beast by feeding on scavenged food or helpless, but useful dodos.

Incorporating a balance of strategy, luck, and player interaction with a unique order of events and blind resource draw, no 2 plays are alike.

Survival is critical. Eliminate your competition to be the last Beast standing on the Edge of Extinction!

Risks and challenges

As with all things, acts of god, nature, or rampaging dodos are beyond our control. The good news is, we otherwise have very little risk. The card art has already been completed and paid in advance. The game has undergone over 2 years of stringent play-testing and is 100% complete. When you back this project, you are essentially pre-ordering, and helping guarantee others, like you, can experience the excitement and joy of being eaten by T-Rex.

The biggest challenge we may possibly face is the ever-changing cost of shipping, as well as the unknown potential for shipping delays. We feel the amount we are charging for shipping is fair and in the event that shipping does increase before the game is delivered, we vow to cover the difference. This is our challenge, not yours! When you back this project you can do so with confidence.
