Ark of Atlantis will be back!

Overview: Ark of Atlantis is a worker placement board game. During each turn, players work hard to collect resources, save creatures, and find artifacts all while trying to build a ship large enough to save all of their workers before Atlantis sinks. As players race against time and each other, Atlantis continues to sink around them. Players must juggle their time between building a ship to save themselves and risking everything to save all that Atlantis holds dear. Players receive bonus points for risking and saving precious items from around the island before they too are lost to the sea.   

The Goal of The Game: The goal of the game is to acquire more victory points than any other player. Players receive victory points for building ship sections, collecting treasure tokens, and selling resources. Players lose victory points for each worker they were unable to save at the end of the game.

How Ark of Atlantis Plays: Players take turns placing their workers around the island. On a player’s turn, they can collect resources, build ship cards, or save valuable items from around the island to gain extra victory points. Each time a player places a worker or a group of workers they must then move their time track marker forward one space for each worker they placed. In Ark of Atlantis, the turn order is constantly changing depending on where a player’s time track marker is positioned on the time track. If a player’s marker lands on or passes over an event space, the player draws an event card and then resolves it by flipping over an island tile. The second time an island tile would be flipped it is removed from the game. The game ends once all island tiles have been removed. Next, players tally up their victory points by adding any bonus points and deducting points for each worker they were unable to save. The player with the most points wins the game.

  •  All of the artwork and layout for Ark of Atlantis is finished and ready to submit to our manufacturer. During the campaign, all files will be delivered to Panda Games for review.
     
  • After the campaign has ended, it takes two weeks for the Kickstarter funds to become available.
     
  • Once the art files have been approved, I will make a wire transfer to Panda Games, which will put us in the queue.
     
  • Once the manufacturing process has begun, it usually takes 4-6 months minimum before the games will be ready to depart from the manufacturer.
     
  • Next, the games will be shipped overseas on a ship which will take another 30 days to reach our fulfillment teams.
     
  • Once our fulfillment partners have received Ark of Atlantis, the shipping phase will begin. Shipping overseas can take up to 6 additional weeks, bringing the whole process from start to finish between 6-9 months.
     
  • I've set the delivery date 11 months out to give myself ample time. Having worked with several manufacturers and publishers, I understand there are many kinds of delays that can take place during this process.

I will be working with Panda Games. They are a great and reliable manufacture with high quality. They are a leader in the board game industry. They have given me several quotes, and I'm excited to work with them on this project. You can see their portfolio by clicking here:   

I have had the privilege to work with Funagain Games on several projects. I will be working with them again on this project. They are experts when it comes to shipping board games. They have been shipping games around the world for many years. Working with Funagain will ensure a quick turn around with great care to each package worldwide. Each reward is packaged to travel long distances without damages. 

For international packages shipping to Canada, Europe, Australia, and Asia, I'll be using Starlit Citadel, Games Quest, Aetherworks, and VFI. Working with these companies will allow the packages to ship within these regions. So no more customs fees, and lower shipping costs.

Risks and challenges

Dear Kickstarter community,

Thank you for checking out my campaign. To this date, I’ve now fulfilled 5 Kickstarter projects to over 4,000 backers. I’ve been blessed to have had thousands of amazing backers who have supported my dreams over the years. I know many of the risks and challenges to running and completing a Kickstarter campaign. Over the years, I’ve learned a lot about the Kickstarter process, some I’ve learned through good times and some through more challenging times. I'm proud to say I have fulfilled every reward and fulfilled all my promises to all my backers. Keeping my promises to my backers will always be the most important thing to me.

I've learned so much, and I'm confident in my ability to fulfill this project especially with the knowledge I have gained from previous projects. Thank you for supporting me, and this game.

Best and sincere regards, Nathanael

Refund Policy: Refunds can be issued up to 2 weeks after the Kickstarter campaign has ended. After this point, I will only be able to refund damaged or lost products.
