About

**Early bird update, see project updates. TLDR: You get a full art pilot card in combination with the damage deck. **

Since the beginning of time boardgames contain many types of cards to play with. But why the boring artwork? Or long texts with no flair?

Time for a change! 

One of the best games of the past year is Star Wars X-wing Miniature game. Lots of cool pre-painted miniatures, tokens en of course playing cards. For this project we will focus on enhancing the damage deck cards from the Force Awakens Core set.

We did some prototyping and behold, a before and after image (not final!):

Prototype Number 1
Prototype Number 1

At the time of writing we are still prototyping with some fonts, place of the text, sizing etc. Also looking into some cool icons to indicate the type of damage. This will be part of the project progress.

One of the rewards gives you ownership of a perfect sized deckbox for your sleeved cards. Here is the product:

Small American sized Deckbox

So what will happen when the project gets funded? Well, on planet Earth everything costs money...so frankly speaking, every credit is spend to get the right people doing the cool jobs they love to do. Designers, prototypers, printing, proofing etc. 

We need a minimum amount of orders to get everything on track, otherwise we owe a large debt to the Jawa's..hence this kickstarter project.

Progress? Every time an image is ready we will share it as soon as possible. Anyone can shout out some feedback but keep in mind, we are restricted in time and budget (unless we will raise a million).
We need at least a total of 14 different images. Ideally this would take around 7 to 10 weeks of designing. We already did some research and sketches so we can start as soon as the goal has been met.

Multiple early bird / decks?No problem, just add multiple of the base price plus shipping and we will add decks accordingly. You can also check the Duo pack or Bulk Reward.

Stretch goal 1 - €4000 :We will make an Empire and Rebel specific damage deck. Which means 'only' Empire or Rebel ships will be used in the making of the deck. No ships will be harmed...

Stretch goal 2 - €6500:We will create three different damage decks. Empire, Rebel and, my favorite, Scum & Villainy

Stretch Goal 3 - €8000 :We will add alternative art for all direct hit cards. So instead of 7 cards with the same image we will make 7 different images per faction.

One final statement, this project is just a start! We are brainstorming on enhancing some more game elements of other Star Wars games or even other boardgames. But first things first, lets get this show in the road!

May the force be with you! ... 'Damage Decks are built on hope' 

Risks and challenges

Luckily the project is pretty straightforward.

Risk number one:
The designers don't deliver in time or the artwork needs some extra tweaking to get it to the level of quality we desire.
Impact: Delayed delivery. But this shouldn't be more than a month.

Risk Number two:
Production delays. Getting the artwork is one challenge but the printing company has to deliver also.
Impact: delivery delay. But we have confidence in our fabrication partner to deliver in time.

Challenge Number one:
Getting the artwork as we would like to have it. Getting the nice look and feel of Star Wars. ..in other words..Quality control.

Challenge Number two:
Getting cool artwork on such a small card. Sometimes a piece of art need space..and the standard damage deck size is a challenge for any artwork. Solution: We added a large format option to the rewards :)
