King's Kilt--Whose Clan will reign in Scotland?

$9,693

NEWS FLASH  January 9, 2015-- Choose Your Clan Names!  See Updates #2 and #3 and #6

 The game depicts intrigue and treachery among the Scottish clans vying for the crown. Clans ascend the pyramid of cards, rising from the bottom three rows of commoners, through the ranks of noblemen and guardians, until one finally gains the crown and is named King of Scotland. Once a king is crowned, clans can only continue to advance by committing acts of betrayal against their neighbors. Players continue by playing influence cards until everyone has passed, thereby ending the game.  

You can download the rules by Clicking Here.

Our designer, Gord Hamilton, has chosen 4 of the 8 Clans that will be included.  They are Hamilton (what a surprise), and Bruce, Macbeth, and Wallace.

 We thought it would be fun if you, our Backers, got to choose 50% of the Clans to be used in this edition of the game! So we have created a poll, to be found at www.EGGRules.com (this is a bit of a slow connection so be prepared to wait 7 seconds when you click to get to this link) where you can vote on up to four Clans to be used in King's Kilt.  You may choose from: Buchanan, Calhoun, Douglas, Lamont, MacDuff, Macleod, Pollock, Stuart.  In addition to name variety, we would like for you to consider color variety as well.  So here are the Clan tartans you are choosing between:

Dr. Gord Hamilton is a member of the Game Artisans of Canada.  He is also the director of MathPickle.com  a YouTube video site that inspires K-12 math teachers with curricular games, puzzles, and unsolved problems of mathematics. This time of year, you'll find him skiing and snuggling in Canada with his two children--Keefer and Julia!

The E•G•G Series is a brand new series of small box (5.75" by 4.25") games being published by Eagle-Gryphon Games (E•G•G).

Eggs and Empires is our first title in the new E•G•G series at #1, designed by the talented Fleet duo of Matt Riddle and Ben Pinchback. Eggs and Empires was just released and is now available at www.EagleGames.net.

12 Days of Christmas by Gord Hamilton was featured and fully funded in a  Kickstarter project that just ended a few days ago and it will debut at #2 in the E•G•G Series.

King's Kilt is featured in this Kickstarter project.  It will be #3 in the E*G*G series and it is also designed by new designer Gord Hamilton.

Krakatoa  is the celebrated dice game by Joli Q. Kansil and will be #4 in the E•G•G Series.  We will look to Kickstarting it in January, 2015.

Dexicon will be #5 and is a deck-building word game by first-time designer Andrew Rowse.

Seven 7's, by multi-published games designer Jason Tagmire, is a card game designed around collections of 7, and it will come in at #7. We just couldn't call this #6, so we skipped #6 for now and will reveal it and more details about all of these games at a later time!

All of these games will be Kickstarter projects in early 2015 for these first-time game designers (plus the new version of the hard-to-find Krakatoa game by seasoned designer Joli Q. Kansil).

Risks and challenges

Eagle-Gryphon Games stands by our products, but sometimes issues do happen. Please contact our customer service department with regard to any such issues within 90 days of receiving your copy of King's Kilt.

Shipping issues are relatively uncommon, but they do sometimes occur, especially when shipping to destinations outside of the US. We will obtain tracking information when it is possible, but sometimes it is not. We cannot guarantee that there will not be shipping problems, as we cannot guarantee the service and reliability of the various postal/delivery services involved around the world. You will have to assume that risk along with us.

Eagle-Gryphon Games has completed 43 Kickstarter projects to date. 38 of those projects have completed delivery. Three of the projects have already been printed and are in the midst of shipping from China. We expect all three of these projects to be delivered in January (they include Baseball Highlights 2045; Mystery Rummy; and Dawn: Rise of the Occulites). One project, successfully completed on Kickstarter last week--the 12 Days of Christmas. The final project--Clockwork Wars, is still in pre-production, totally on schedule and slated for delivery in or before July, 2015. We keep Backers notified by Updates about the status of their projects. We deliver on our promises reliably and usually on time (the very few delays we have ever had were related to production schedule issues which we have only, at best, partial control over).

To put it simply, you will get everything you are promised when you pledge to one of our Kickstarter Projects, and it will be delivered to you in as timely a manner as possible.
