Kingdoms of Erden: King of the Mountain (Canceled)
Collect faction members and dominate the mountain in this set collection strategy fantasy card game. Ages 10+ 2-4 players 15-45 min
Kingdoms of Erden: King of the Mountain is a fantasy strategy card game for 2-4 players. Players age 10+ . 15-45 minutes to play.
In their turn, each player will choose a card from their hand to play and discard. The chosen card must be able to defeat the victor card on the top of the discard pile. Cards with higher number ranking can defeat lower ranked cards. Certain cards have a special ability that may allow them to defeat a particular card of equal or higher rank. 5 wild cards types spice up the action. Draw reward cards for defeating the victor card and for holding your ground as the new "king" of the mountain. Faction Dominance allows the first player who has a 35 faction points for a single color faction in their hand to win the game. If a player has no cards left to play, they lose the game and the remaining players will continue until only one player remains. The victorious player is the last one to place a card on the discard pile.

Let's take a closer look at the cards. These cards are from the blue faction known as the Imelridh. Each faction character has a number rank that is shown in the cards upper left corner. That's my face on the blue king.
These cards are from the red faction known as the Carnaros. You might notice that underneath the title of the characters, each character card has a special ability. My brother let me use his face on the red king. He's a really nice guy. (My brother, not the red king.)
The yellow third faction, known as the Brigon Empire, also has it's eye on the mountains peak. On each character card, you can see the characters title and faction color & sigil. The sigil color and faction name help you identify the characters faction. You may not defeat a character with a card of the same faction.
There is a fourth faction that may be included in the game, either as an add on or a stretch goal. This Mercenary faction may have the faces of backers who choose the reward tier "Custom Mercenary character card". Choose a character class to customize before it's taken.
Mercenary Faction Add-On
The Mercenary character classes are:
Dwarven & Elven Factions in the special edition.
The Primary Goal; $1,000 USD. 36 cards / Core Game
Stretch Goal #1; $4,000 USD. The Rioting Villager Character Card will be added to the game.
The Rioting Villager Character Card will let you temporarily boost the rank of a faction character when you discard them together.
Reaching our Secondary goal will let us print the decks of game cards and add the Rioting Villager card to the deck, (3 factions x 9 characters per faction and a variety of wild cards) and ship them in a custom box with the printed rules and mini poster included.
More Stretch Goals are planned...
My name is Timothy. When i discovered Kickstarter, I realized that I could actually design, produce and sell the art and game ideas that have been fermenting in my brain. My years of varied work history has given me many ideas. I love figuring out how to make a board or card game work. I also think art should be functional. My dream is to make a variety of games using the Kingdoms of Erden IP. Sebastian and I have been creating the art assets for Kingdoms of Erden for five years.

Risks and challenges
The challenges that come with any card game project include the cost of printing and shipping the product. I will be using MPC.com to print the cards as they have proven their speed and quality to me several times.
I will also be using USPS to ship out the rewards. For all other challenges, I will be using my army and power as King of the Imelridh, to effect a positive outcome for all who back this venture.
