Why choose Reign of Nations?

  • Cost - as a backer of $25 or more, even if no stretch goals are unlocked, you will be receiving a copy of Reign of Nations at a significantly reduced price off of the future MSRP.  If we are able to unlock some / all of the stretch goals, then your savings are even greater!
  • Replay Value - the desire to play the game again is off the charts. This is largely due to the seven randomizing elements built into the game, which allows for no two games to play out the same...believe me, we've tried.
  • Exhilarating Game Play - due to the randomizing elements, all players have a chance at ruining each others' day at any moment. This game truly isn't over until it is over. From players who just want to sit down and throw dice, to players who strategize every moment in life, this game provides the best of all worlds with its ever-changing game flow. You will cry after rolling poorly, and laugh hysterically after your friend gets owned. It's all part of the game.
  • Simplicity - we have done everything possible to make your playing  experience hassle free. The rule book is extremely logical and easy to follow; an example game play walk-through is included within. We went the extra mile and provided you with a one page quick start guide for even less downtime. The game pieces were designed to provide you with a nice, clean playing field. In addition, there will be an online video instruction guide for those who do not want to read the rules at all.
  • Time - it is always a factor. We have put ourselves through the endless nights to provide you with a game that won't take away from yours. A typical game of Reign of Nations lasts anywhere from several minutes (for those poor, unlucky souls) up to several hours (usually for the higher player games). The average game takes about an hour from start to finish.
  • Player Count - a higher number of players always makes for fun-filled gaming, which is why Reign of Nations can be enjoyed by 2 to 7 players at a time.
  • Art and Narrative - a whole new world will come to life, starting with Reign of Nations. This means that the community gets to enjoy all new characters, stories, artwork, as well as the actual game play itself. The artwork alone is worth the price of admission.

"The unpredictable nature of it in how you could be dominating at one moment but feeling the hurt the next..." - Sean Coyle

"...the randomization was great, you often exclaim your surprise / dismay / excitement with everyone else." - Brian Goss

 "The set-up was very easy..." - Franky Kamar

Improvements will likely include: additional copies in every game so more players can utilize it, graphical enhancement of both front and back sides, restructured format to allow for more references, thicker card stock to increase durability, better final finish (matte), and foiling / embossing.

Improvements will likely include: an additional token type to make playing the game even more visually appealing, graphical enhancement of both front and back sides, thicker card stock (or possibly moving into plastic) to increase durability, better final finish (UV / matte), and foiling / embossing.

Province cards will be included for all 61 provinces on the game board to make it easier to track a player's total resources and spiritual influence values.  The province cards will be created to the same quality as the other cards included in the game.

Wound tokens will be included to make tracking health for warlords and immortals easier for players.

Improvements will likely include: an exclusive Kickstarter ONLY artifact card will be included for all backers, graphical enhancement of both front and back sides, thicker card stock to increase durability, better final finish (matte), and foiling / embossing.

Improvements will likely include: all character illustrations with summaries / stats will be included in the rule book, graphical enhancement of the entire rule book, thicker card stock to increase durability, better final finish (matte), better binding, and foiling / embossing.

Improvements will likely include: an exclusive Kickstarter ONLY die will be included for all backers, at least several custom dice will be included in every copy of Reign of Nations, graphical enhancement of the dice, and improved die quality.

Improvements will likely include: graphical enhancement of the game board, thicker board / material to increase durability, better final finish (matte), adding some physical depth to the board, and foiling / embossing.

Improvements will likely include: graphical enhancement of the game box, thicker board / material to increase durability, better final finish (matte), adding some physical depth to the box, and foiling / embossing.

Improvements will likely include: the grunt tokens will become 3D plastic representations rather than flat, stackable chips.

Improvements will likely include: the warlord and immortal game pieces will become 3D plastic representations.

ADDITIONAL STRETCH GOALS WILL BE ADDED AS WE START UNLOCKING THESE ONES.

We would like to give a sincere THANK YOU! to all of you that have been apart of the creation process of Reign of Nations ;)

Risks and challenges

Manufacturing - We are shooting for a delivery date of December 2015; please note that this is an estimate. Although Reign of Nations is currently almost 100% complete, stretch goals may be unlocked which will require component updating. The December estimate accounts for all work that may be additionally required. We have several manufactures lined up to create the basic version of the game; however, we want to produce the best quality game possible, thus, finding the appropriate manufacture(s) for all of the current and possible future components is the first item on the to-do list upon funding. We would like Reign of Nations to be produced to match our ultimate vision; however, this will require that all stretch goals become unlocked.

Shipping - It is very important to us that you receive your copy of Reign of Nations on-time and in one piece. Shipping within the US is FREE, shipping to Canada and EU is $25, and shipping to all other accessible parts of the world is $45. These prices will not increase even if we unlock all stretch goals and more. If we are able to secure some awesome shipping deals prior to our estimated delivery date, we will do our best to pass along the savings to you.

Inventory - As we are trying to bring Reign of Nations to the world at cost as much as possible, there will likely be little room for extra cash; thus, ensuring that we have enough funds to be able to place additional orders beyond the current Kickstarter needs could be a challenge. We will do our best to anticipate the market correctly and never be out of stock.

Refunds - Backers may request a refund up to 60 days after the end of the Kickstarter campaign; including additional charges if present.
