About

 During good King Richard “Dick” Greathart's miraculous one hundred fifty-two-year reign over the lands of Joda, he loved ALL his subjects. Never taking a wife, King Richard left no legitimate heir to his crown. Illegitimate sons and daughters of every race spring up from all over the lands of Joda declaring they should take Dick's place on the throne. Each Royal Bastard asserts their case and gathers followers and support throughout Joda. But only one Royal Bastard can claim the crown! 

 Winning the Game: You, as one of Good King Richard's many descendants are racing to gain control of the now empty throne. You’ll have to contend with the MANY other bastards doing the same. The goal of Royal Bastards is to send your Firstborn and their followers to the many territories in the kingdom to gain the support of the populace there.  Each bastard builds that support throughout the game. The bastard with the most support at the end of the game receives Royal Approval Points according to each territory that bastard has claimed.  The bastard with the most Royal Approval Points becomes the next ruler of Joda!

 More Stretch Goals to come!

Royal Bastards plays over 9 turns. Each turn your bastard travels the lands of Joda trying to gain the support of the people.  Each bastard competes against other bastards in Contests, proving who is the superior.  Throughout the game, each player is encouraged to play Chaos Cards which can help or hinder the bastards.  At the end of the game, support is counted and determines which bastard receives the Royal Approval Points for that each specific Territory.  The bastard who receives the most Royal Approval Points at the end of the game is declared the next King or Queen of Joda!

Terms and Conditions

REFUND POLICY Following the terms of Kickstarter,  FlameStryke Games will provide a full refund provided the request is received  within 14 days of the close of the campaign.If a request is made after this period, any refund would be at the discretion of FlameStryke Games, and would be a maximum of 85% based on incurred fees and handling costs. 

DAMAGED OR INCOMPLETE PRODUCTS We understand that all backers want to receive their items in pristine condition; however, the realities of worldwide shipping can sometimes  make this difficult.  We guarantee that the product you receive will be complete and all internal components in perfect condition. We will do our best to ensure that your package arrives in good condition, but all decisions on box replacements will be made on a case by case basis.  Due to the difficulty and expense in replacing boxes, depending on your  region, we will not be able to replace some boxes with minor cosmetic damage only.  

RETURNED PRODUCTS  If you refuse to accept your package on arrival we will not issue you a refund for the cost of the pledge.  

Risks and challenges

Although this is our first Kickstarter, we have partnered with some great and successful companies that specialize in delivering our quality crowdfunded board games.
Working with CrowdOx as our pledge manager gives us the extra knowledge to communicate with all our backers as well as making sure everything is done correctly.
As with all board games, there are potential problems during production, shipping, and customs delays, we are working with QuarterMaster Logistics and we now have industry veteran manufacturers, shippers, importers and everyone in between. We have already sent off some of the files for pre-production checks and will be ready to pick up speed and complete the file checking stage soon after the kickstarter finishes.
The game is 100% complete, requiring only tweaking, additional final artwork changes to be added depending on how many stretch goals are unlocked. This means we can be ready to give the final approval for production in plenty of time, so that we can get the games to all of you as soon as possible. We will also make sure that throughout all stages of production after the kickstarter, we will keep you up-to-date with developments through this project page.
