The Gamer's pledge for $49 includes one copy of BLOCKCHAIN: The Cryptocurrency Game, with all stretch goals included. The components of the base game are listed above in the Components section. See the shipping section for more details on shipping charges and delivery dates.
The miner’s pledge for $99 features the deluxe version of our game. You'll receive a complete copy of the base game with all stretch goals and an additional 200 ANODIZED ALUMINUM COINS! Each aluminum coin is colorized and stamped with the coin design of each cryptocurrency. They'll ship separately from the base game, FREE of charge if located in the US. See the shipping section for more details on shipping charges and delivery dates.
The trader’s pledge for $129 includes the miner’s pledge (base game + 200 anodized aluminum coins) as well as an exclusive spot on the box. Your name will appear on our Kickstarter donor wall - a special area of the box dedicated to our Trader’s pledges. It’s our way of saying thank you! Details regarding name submissions will be sent out after the campaign ends. This reward applies only to the first print run of the game, shipping to all Kickstarter backers and some retail locations.
The hacker’s pledge for $199 immortalizes you on the box! A custom-illustrated caricature of your face will appear in a hacker costume within an exclusive area on the box. Only eight hackers will receive the honor of this position. In addition to having a caricature of your face illustrated on the box, you’ll receive the traders’s pledge (base game + 200 anodized aluminum coins + name on Kickstarter donor wall). Details regarding face submissions will be sent out after the campaign ends. This reward applies only to the first print run of the game, shipping to all Kickstarter backers and some retail locations.
Blockchain is a strategic action-based card game where players take turns trading and storing coins. The first player to accumulate ten of each coin in cold storage wins! On each turn, your meticulous manipulation of exchange rates combined with clever card casting will net you coins.
Each player's turn is divided into three phases:
Phase 1: Mining for cards
At the beginning of your turn, draw cards from the deck until you have five cards in hand. You'll use these cards to perform actions during your turn!
Phase 2: Paying for servers
For each server you have deployed, choose if you want to pay the cost to use its actions. Servers boost mining, trading, and storing power so that you can do more on your turn!
Phase 3: Mine, trade, chain, and store
Play Block cards from your hand by placing them above your vault for the duration of your turn. The badges on the Block card represent how many cards you can mine, your available number of trades, and the amount of coins you can store! Additionally, the Chain badge represents how many Block cards you can continue to play.
Clever chaining of Block cards can lead to high powered trades and large amounts of cold storage. But be careful, you can always be hacked!
Heads-up hacks by other players are sure to keep you on your toes the whole game. With a few timely hacks and some tenacious trades, you'll be well on your way to filling your vault with coins!

* The EU includes the following countries: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Germany, Denmark, Estonia, Spain, Finland, France, United Kingdom, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Latvia, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Sweden, Slovenia, and Slovakia.
We are proud to offer US, Canada, EU, and Australia-friendly shipping! This means that we mass-import our product into these regions so that you don't have to pay for import taxes.
If you're in the US, keep in mind that Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico, and other remote states are not in this shipping region and will be charged based on the "All other countries" price.
Shipping will be charged after the campaign ends when we are certain how many boxes we will order. The shipping breakdown by region lists a rough estimate that we received from Quartermaster Logistics, a well known and successful fulfillment company. We expect shipping charges to vary from the estimates above depending on the order quantity for each region.
Please note: The shipping for the Miner's pledge is an additional charge, with the coins being shipped separately from the base game. While you'll receive both the game and the coins around the same time, they will come from different senders (hence the additional shipping charge).
In the weeks following the end of our campaign, you will confirm your pledge, pay for shipping, and confirm your address. We are working with the best “pledge manager” platforms to ensure that the completion of our campaign runs as smooth as possible!
Risks and challenges
While this is Say Cheves Games' first Kickstarter campaign (yay!), we can assure you that we've put in the hours to make our game the best it can be. However, with any design process, there can be delays that are out of our control: design verification, pre-production adjustments, mass production delays, final assembly errors, and fulfillment problems. As a backer, it’s important to understand the risks, even though they are unlikely to occur. Throughout the post-Kickstarter process, we’ll be keeping you updated on the production and fulfillment status of your pledge. If we run into any problems, we’ll let you know right away!
Here are some of the ways we’ve made sure our game is ready for production once we meet our funding goal:
PANDA GAME MANUFACTURING
Our partner in China, Panda Game Manufacturing, is one of the most established and successful game production companies in the world. Over the past few months, we’ve been communicating with Panda to ensure the best outcome for our game. After reviewing many different printers, Panda delivered the highest quality prototypes with truly amazing service. We couldn’t be happier choosing them as our manufacturer!
If it’s one thing our team members excel in, it’s graphic design. With 50+ combined years of experience in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, we’ve managed to complete nearly 100% of the graphics BEFORE we launched our campaign. This allows us to begin pre-production immediately after the campaign is funded.
SHIPPING & FULFILLMENT
We’ve been in contact with Ship Naked and Quartermaster Logistics, two leading fulfillment services that specialize in delivering Kickstarter projects. Communication has been excellent, leaving us with little to no worries regarding the complicated shipping process. You can be sure that your pledges are in the safest hands!
Again, in the rare case that there is a delay in production or a problem with fulfillment, we’ll let you know. Here are some ways you can minimize your risks:
After the campaign ends you’ll receive an email from us asking for some information. This is commonly called the “pledge manager” phase, where you’ll confirm your pledge and shipping address. Make sure your address is a permanent address, as your reward won’t ship to you for a few months.
DAMAGED OR INCORRECT ITEMS
When you receive your reward, you’ll likely be so overcome with excitement that you’ll just rip the box open and start playing immediately. We understand. But we want to serve you in the best possible way, so if you spot any issue whatsoever with your reward, send us a picture and we’ll resolve the issue immediately.
