Thanks to all our amazing backers!

If you discover Dark Mages after the project ends, Go on Dark Mages Website to order the retail version of the game (it’s the same version you see here but without the Stretch Goals)!

In Dark Mages, each player takes the role of a Wizard and attacks other players with the help of several types of cards, such as terrifying magic spells, magic items, companions and more. The only goal of the game is to survive, defeating all enemies. Last mage alive will be designated the winner of the game!

2 to 8 Players
20-40 minutes to play
Ages 13+

Why Kickstarter?

Dark Mages is a very simple game. The mechanics of the game, the characters, the Card Types, etc., has been developed in 100% and the game is simple to learn and play. We already have our suppliers and ready to print BUT, we need money to continue to make our amazing illustrations. The game is Easy & Fun but we want great illustrations, we need great illustrators!

Thank you for backing our project!

If you discover Dark Mages after the projects ends, you can see all the rules and the How to Play over the Dark Mages Website.

Magic item cards (staves, robes, rings and amulets) increase attack or defense attributes of your magician. They possess only one colored corner and letter. Magic items are placed in a precise order around your character card.

For example, the red corner accompanied by the letter S of a staff card joins the red corner also with the letter S of the character card.

Please note only one specific object can be placed per colored corner for a maximum of four. However, they may be replaced by new ones in the course of a battle. Unused items are removed to the discard pile.

Example:

  • 8 Character Cards
  • 48 Spell Cards
  • 4 Companion Cards
  • 16 Specialized Cards
  • 8 Healing Cards
  • 20 Magic Item Cards
  • 4 Potion Cards
  • 3 Artifact Cards
  • 2 Encounter Cards
  • 4 Hex Cards
  • 3 Scroll Cards
  • ??? Black Cards (1/10000 chance to get one!)
  • 7 dices into an elegant black velvet bag

We are two best friends for over 20 years and both of us are named Eric, but our friends call us Rick and Rick! One is working as a Web and Multimedia Developer and the other as an Entrepreneur. We decided to merge our ideas together to develop this great game named: Dark Mages. We know that actually, mobile devices and computers rule the world, but we do think that friends and family members need to be reunited around a fun game and cherish those moments spent together.

Risks and challenges

The game production is going well! The biggest risk of the project is the delays in the artwork because there are a lot of illustrations to do and we want the best quality of each illustration. The artists are professionals and working very hard to get this done!

We expecting to get the game done by the date we mentioned. The main goal is to deliver our game to you quickly as possible! Once we did that, we have a lot of ideas for the further development of this game (expansion, etc) and another game in brainstorming!

Dark Mages is an easy, fun and simple to play game. Support our project and in return, you will receive a very cool game.
