Missed the Kickstarter?  Available here direct for a limited time still at 20% off.

NOTE: None of the components or graphics presented here are final.  These are all prototype images.

 Here is a copy of the Goddess Board (WORK IN PROGRESS).   This board tracks Favor and Balance.  I have a very large version of this board which looks super impressive on a table.

EVOLUTION OF COVEN PART 1:   Click here to see Paul's rulebook from 2012.  This is not the final rulebook.  We did not use strings or a wooden board in the final game.  The evolution of the game will be shown over the following weeks.  Check back here for more.   Click here to read part one of Paul's designer diary. 

EVOLUTION OF COVEN PART 2. Text version of most up to date rules here. Parts TWO & THREE of Paul's designer journal.

Paul has written now 5 SEGMENTS of his designer journal.  Go check out the first three parts (links above).  You can find the parts 4 and 5 in the same forum.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING:  Kickstarter now automatically adds shipping based on your location.   You no longer need to manually add shipping costs. Just hit the pledge button so see the fees for your country.  Thanks.

Coven is recommended by the designer for 3-5 players, but is playable without alteration of rules by 2 players.

Risks and challenges

Making sure we get the most out of our costs, and staying competitive in this growing market, has been a huge challenge. We've built a network of connections to help us meet these challenges. This game is our most expensive game to print and it would be very difficult for us to print without the use of Kickstarter. We however have published 6 games and established solid ties to manufactures and retailers within the industry. You can trust that this game will be top quality. but we need Kickstarter to remain competitive. Thanks for supporting 8th Summit!
