About this project


Are you ready to take up the gauntlet against other Heroes and face the many challenges that await your party?

Your heroes delve into a long forgotten crypt, rumored to be filled with treasure and danger! Equip your team of brave Heroes as they defeat monsters and maneuver past obstacles to find the treasure and gold that is hidden there. Your Heroes will also face opposition from other parties searching the dungeon. Your Heroes will journey until they find and defeat the elite monster in the final room. The party of Heroes with the most gold wins. So gear up and get out there and show your opponents who the REAL Hero is!

Gauntlet of Heroes is a fantasy card game for 2-5 players, attempting to explore a dangerous dungeon full of monsters and challenges. Each time you play, you build your party out of unique heroes. At the end of each game, the party who has accumulated the most gold pieces is the winner.

 We feel that everything that you need to play a great game is already included.  That being said we are investigating what it would take to get some additional cool things added if we meet some over funding stretch goals.  These could include:

  • Custom Dice
  • Additional Heroes
  • Additional Mystery Elites
  • Additional Cursed? Treasures

Stay Tuned!

Kickstarter is the world's largest funding platform for creative projects. Every month, tens of thousands of people pledge millions of dollars to creative projects in dozens of categories.

A person who supports a project is called a "backer." The process of giving money to this game is called a "pledge."

In return for your pledge, we (the creators of the campaign) are able to offer "rewards," depending on the amount you pledge.

For example, if you pledge $26 to help back the project - we'll offer you a copy of the game along with any over-fund goals we achieve as soon as it is manufactured. You'll get access weeks before it's made available to everyone else!

Pledge levels vary from just $1 to several hundreds of dollars. And each different level opens up a new, creative reward. (For a full list, check out the right side of the page - or scroll down the page a bit more).

You can become a backer in just three easy steps:

Step 1: Read through the pledge levels and rewards we're offering in the right sidebar of this page.

Step 2: Click the large, green "BACK THIS PROJECT" button to the right of the trailer video at the top of this page.

Step 3: Enter your pledge amount - and complete the steps for filling in your information. This process takes just a few seconds!

  • Gauntlet of Heroes was designed and thoroughly tested over the last year to ensure the best game experience possible. We feel that you will enjoy playing it as much as we enjoyed making it! I have yet to win a game so far.
  • We have a great team of designers, play testers, and artist. Even though this is our first published game, we have been designing, playing, and play testing games for over 25 years! Giulio Fanfori is a talented artist, and we were very lucky to get him to join us.You can see his art here:http://kendal14.deviantart.com/
  • The game is loaded with original, incredible characters as well as a couple that you may recognize (We can’t wait to reveal these!).
  • As backers, you will be the very first to receive Gauntlet of Heroes.
  • All backers will receive any over-funding goals we achieve throughout the campaign.
  • The art is nearly complete, so now we need the capital to finish the art and manufacture the game for awesome backers like you!

Thank you for backing - once you've backed, be sure to share on Facebook, Twitter, and tell your friends.

Risks and challenges

Gauntlet of Heroes is our very first journey into the world of self-publishing. But we have done a lot of thorough research and we have talked with game designers, and successful Kickstarters to produce the best quality game we can. We've spent thousands of hours designing and playtesting over the past year with old and new friends, and family of all ages and gaming demographics. We've spent months planning the deployment of Gauntlet of Heroes establishing manufacturing contacts so that we will be prepared to upload the files following this campaign. We are confident that we can deliver this game promptly.

The biggest obstacle is funding successfully. With your help, we can get there.

There are always unforeseen issues that can impede any project like this. As we are having the game manufactured in China, it will be in a container being shipped across the sea. Issues with international customs could delay shipping. It is important to remember that this is our first game as publishers. We have put in a lot of the upfront work, attention to detail, and passion to make sure this game is a success in every way possible.
