Wage a war of the ages as you travel through time recruiting history's most influential people. Which path will you choose? Will you take solace in Art? Will you go the path of the righteous and seek out the Good? Or will you go the path of the conqueror and seek out Evil? Perhaps the knowledge contained within Science? The choice is yours.

AGES is a historical deck building card game for 2-4 players. The average game lasts 30-60 minutes.

Each game comes in a high quality telescoping box capable of holding all of your cards, even sleeved. The base game contains 216 cards in all. Each set from the Bronze Age and up will also contain 3 Kickstarter exclusive Elite cards, plus any stretch goals unlocked. Each Kickstarter exclusive card will remain exclusive and will never be reproduced.

  • Rulebook 
  • 72 Icon cards 
  • 40 Starter cards 
  • 18 Gold cards 
  • 52 Trade cards 
  • 14 Elite cards 
  • Promo cards

AGES is a lot of fun and will appeal to more than just history buffs. It is an in-depth deck builder with some unique mechanics, including the Elite phase abilities.

Here are the final thoughts of Whitespider1066: http://whitespider1066.com/ages-final-thoughts/    

Desert Sky Games and Comics: "I've played the game and it's solid. Backed as a retailer"

Patrick Compton: "This game is wonderful and I love it for several reasons. 1. I am not a "traditional" gamer. I play exactly 1 other card / Deck builder. This game did NOT take a 1,000 hours to learn, yet it is not a simple game that will cause you to lose interest. 2. The historical connection is not only educational, but draws you in. 3. The game isn't consumed with forever long turns that can be boring while you wait. The game moves at a good clip and really "it's on" from turn 1. 4. The art work is breath taking. I have traveled around the majority of the world and the locations, relics are very real looking. 5. I don't have the money to dump $2,000 to build a deck that can win. It's more than fair for anyone right out of the box."

Risks and challenges

There are very few risks involved. We have been working on this project for over two years. Thanks to the help of many people, especially my good friend and business partner Jared Robbins, the game is complete. All that we need are the funds to start mass production. The biggest issue will be shipping internationally, but we are certain that we have that covered.

The other main risk is the artwork. Any new cards unlocked will need to be designed. This should be a minimal risk, but there is always the chance of running into issues with the artist or printer. But we will work hard to make sure this risk is as minimal as possible.
