About

Champions of Legarren is a fun, competitive fitness-based card game for 1-5 players.

In the game, you take on the role of one of five Champions to battle in an epic tournament for the glory of being crowned the Knight of Legarren.

Each character has a deck of ability cards at their disposal.  To use those abilities, you must pass an exercise challenge.  The better you perform at that exercise challenge, the more powerful that ability becomes!

The game has three modes: Training, Versus, and Tournament.  In Training mode, you work your way through your character's deck, practicing the movements and getting a great at-home workout.  In Versus mode, you challenge one other player to a duel, battling until one of you is victorious.  Finally, in Tournament mode, up to 5 players compete in an all-out battle royale to determine the Knight of Legarren.

Champions of Legarren can be played anywhere, as long as there is adequate space to do a push-up or squat safely.  The only equipment you'll ever need is a chair or bench for doing dips.

First, you choose a character to play as:

  • Ke'mana, the Fighter
  • Sidron, the Mage
  • Adaya, the Ranger
  • Marobrak, the Rogue
  • Quinran, the Druid

Each player will take out the life tracker and quick reference cards for their character and set the cards down in front of them, then shuffle their decks. Each player draws three cards, and you are ready to begin! 

Game Play:

The oldest player goes first, and play continues in a clockwise pattern.

On your turn:

  • Select a card to play from your hand to the field.
  • Perform 10 seconds of the exercise listed on the card.
  • Select a target for the card’s effect.
  • Once the effect has resolved, place the card into your discard pile                    
    • This excludes Defense Cards and the Fighter’s Riposte ability, which remain out on the field until their effects are triggered.
    • At the end of your turn, draw back up to 3 cards in your hand.

      Play then passes to the next player.
     

Types of Cards:

Attack - these cards deal damage to other players.

Defense - these cards put up a defensive barrier between two players.  Any attack card played against the defense card will destroy it, and excess damage will carry over to the player.

Heal - these cards recover lost hit points.  You can heal yourself or any other player when you use a Heal card.

Special Ability - there are class-specific abilities that can turn the tide of battle.  Follow the instructions on the Special Ability card.  

Promoter Tier will receive a PDF of all 150 cards to print and play at home.

Contender Tier will receive the 150 cards printed on 350 gsm coated stock in a printed box, ready to play! You'll get the game for only $15 plus shipping. The MSRP for Champions of Legarren will be $24.99.

We need to raise $6000 to fund the initial production run of Champions of Legarren, including artwork, printing, packaging, and shipping to our backers.  

We are partnering with More Than Ink Printing in our hometown of Jacksonville, FL to print the cards on high-quality recycled stock with eco-friendly inks to minimize our impact on the environment.    

Daniel Diaz Brauch is an exercise physiologist and unapologetic nerd who created Critical Fit in 2017 to help people everywhere get fit and have fun doing it.  The program has since expanded to include group fitness classes, online personal training, and now an at-home fitness card game! You can find more information at www.critical.fit.

Brianna Miller has created art from a young age and has produced illustrations for Critical Fit since its inception.  Her art has been featured at the yearly GAAM Invitational Charity Art Auction among other locations around Jacksonville. You can follow her @prismatic.panic on Instagram, or at her website, www.prismaticpanic.com.

Risks and challenges

We learned a lot about the production and shipping process (and our own limitations) during the fulfillment stage of the Critical Fit Kickstarter, and have accounted for those lessons in the timeline for this project.

We have a fully playtested and balanced game, and the art is nearing completion. There should not be any hiccups in the game's production, but we are prepared to tackle any that come up.
