Inner Kingdom Games is back for the third Kickstarter project to bring you more of the Dynamic Card Game of Hong Kong action movie fun!
History and Storyline
Shadowfist goes all the way back to the first generation of CCGs, in the mid 90s. As the Hong Kong Action Movie Card Game, it's stood the test of time and continues to be enjoyed by gamers worldwide. Afterall, what's more fun than cyborg monkeys battling Confucian monks in downtown Kowloon while truck-driving heroes set booby traps for evil sorcerers?
In this installment, we offer a complete block of three 50-card fixed expansions, along with the option of the second Action Pack for the modern environment, featuring new foundations and more much-needed deck staples.
"The Coming Darkness" follows our martial arts cop heroine, Edie Tso, on an adventure through the modern criminal underworld to the Netherworld and back.
The block includes three fixed, 50-card sets:
Picking up where last year's Rebirth Block left off, we find the Center of the Lotus, Xin Ji Yang, in alliance with the evil Queen of the Darkness Pagoda, Ming I. Xin has her sights on the modern juncture and seeks to manipulate the ambitious Shi Kan Lun, a modern day criminal mastermind and budding sorcerer.
After Shi kills Edie's partner, she sets out for justice... and vengeance. Her story plays out through the cards that comprise the expansions, culminating in an epic showdown of good versus evil.
What this Kickstarter offers:
With the release of last year's Reinforcements and Revelations, Inner Kingdom Games introduced two brand new concepts to the world of Shadowfist: Token Character Cards and the Crisis alternate cost. This block features more of these great game mechanics.
For those who previously picked up the official Shadowfist Token Deck, you'll be happy to know that with this block, every single token character card will be playable!
Further, we've expanded the use of the Crisis alternate cost by including it on characters and states!
Inner Kingdom Games continues its tradition of offering a wealth of options through Kickstarter, depending on what and how much product you want. If there's a combination missing that you'd like to see, drop us a line and we will do all we can to make it available to you.
Other Modern Sets
As you review the reward options, you'll notice a lot of set names that may be unfamiliar if you're new to Shadowfist. Here is a quick rundown of what we're offering:
Combat in Kowloon - A stand-alone boxed set featuring four pre-constructed, ready-to-play starter decks; an abridged rulebook, poster playmats, and wooden counters. The decks are for the Ascended, Dragons, Eaters of the Lotus, and Guiding Hand factions.
Back for Seconds - Two pre-constructed, ready to play starter decks, for the Monarchs and the Jammers.
Reloaded, Reinforcements, Revelations - The three 50-card fixed expansion packs of the Rebirth Cycle featuring a total of 21 new cards per faction, along with new Feng Shui Sites and neutral cards.
Action Pack #1 - A special pack of 50 cards that players typically need multiple copies of for deck-building, such as foundation characters, non-unique Feng Shui Sites, and key events. These cards come from throughout the Rebirth Block, Combat in Kowloon, and Back for Seconds.
Action Pack #2 - Like Action Pack #1, this special pack focuses on cards players need in multiples for effective deck-building. While heavily focused on cards from the Coming Darkness Block, the pack does include a few titles from previous sets that didn't make it into Action Pack #1.
