GRAB YOUR ALE AND GROW YER BEARDS! PROVE YOUR DWARVEN STRENGTH. FIGHT AND DRINK FOR HONOR! 

Iron and Ale is 100% Dwarf. It is a game of mining, fighting monsters, drinking and dwarven challenges. You are a Dwarven Lord challenging other players to become the true Dwarven King. To do this you must lead your clan to conquer the mountain and challenge other Dwarven Lords at the Meadhall. The Dwarven Lord with the most honor when the Mountain Deck is depleted wins.

The Mountain Cards
The Mountain Cards
     

The mountain is vast and full of riches guarded by sworn enemies. The mountain is made up of 100 cards filled with monsters, iron ore and gold. Sworn Dwarven enemies, such as Orc tribes, Giants, Trolls, the Legendary Dragon and more lurk in the mountain deck. During the Mountain Phase each player draws one card, exploring and mining the mountain. Every kill, every resource brings honor to your clan.

Meadhall Challenges Await!
Meadhall Challenges Await!
     

After you draw a card from the Mountain, you draw a card from the Meadhall Deck. The Meadhall is where you drink and challenge the other Dwarven Lords for honor in feats of strength and skill. The Meadhall deck is made up of 30 Dwarven Challenges and 10 Dwarven Folly cards. All challenges are 100% dwarf and will prove yer dwarven worth. Dwarven Lords are encouraged to place wages using any honor or resources they've gained before the challenges start. 

 The Dragon sleeps deep at the bottom of the mountain. The Dragon card is placed at the bottom of the mountain deck every game, but you may challenge it anytime. You can go alone or share the honor with other players. Survive and glory is yours.

At the beginning of the game players randomly choose a Dwarven Lord Card. Each Dwarven Lord has a unique ability. There are 10 Original Dwarven Lords and a special Kickstarter Limitied Edition 'Jayceh Tableforge' that comes with the original Kickstarter run.

Risks and challenges

Not finding enough people dwarf enough to fund this project.

A lot of our funding is going into art costs for making all the cards we need. Art delays are always something that can happen. We are confident in our lead artist to get the project done on time within our schedule.

Production is always something that can hold a project back. We have spent months gathering reports, samples and prices from manufacturers and feel very confident with the company we have decided to go with. Building a relationship beforehand is crucial to making sure production stays on schedule.
