About this project
THANK YOU ALL YOU WONDERFUL BACKERS! You have given us the means to begin our dream job and make this game for everyone to enjoy. We are so thankful for all the support and are excited to proceed.
STRETCH GOAL $9,000: With only a few days left we wanted to offer a stretch goal incentive. If we can raise $9,000 by our deadline (which means more flexibility with our manufacturing options as well as more for our wonderful artist Mike Mattocks), every backer of $10 or more will receive a monster card magnet (see below) along with their thank you card. The magnet is 3" x 4" and very cool. However, even better is that if we reach our stretch goal, we will create 10 new adventures for the game and let you backers vote on which 5 will be added to the game! Just another way to say thanks and incorporate your ideas into the game.
What is it? Legends of Adventure is a cooperative fantasy board game that utilizes both the strategy of card play and the luck of dice. All of the players are trying to cooperatively complete 10 adventures in order to become Legends. In order to do so, players must work together to defeat monsters along the way.
How do I play? Players become Heroes of different types and go forth to undertake up to 10 adventures. To complete an adventure, the players must defeat a group of Monsters equal to the number of players. If four players are playing, then the players will face four Monsters in each adventure. The adventures and the Monsters will have powers that will modify game play. In order to defeat the Monsters and complete the adventure, the players have to jointly outscore the Monsters’ combined levels. This is done by rolling dice for each level of Hero and Treasure Card played. Each successful roll adds to the level of the players. Once they have defeated the Monsters, they receive loot in the form of Treasure Cards that will help them in future adventures. The variety of cards provides a different scenario not only for each adventure but also for each game. For more information, check out our website at www.legendsofadventuregame.com. You can also find our rules here.
40 different Hero cards
100 Monster cards
250 Treasure cards
Where do you come in? The game has been tested with a fully functioning prototype. Now we need our great artist, Mike Mattocks, to complete the more than 125 original pieces of art for the game. Once these are completed, we have several manufacturers lined up that can produce a first run of 500 games. So, dear Kickstarters, that is how you can help. Your efforts will raise the funds to pay for all of the high-quality art and to have our first run of 500 copies manufactured. Together, we can add a new voice and title to the gaming community. We thank you for all your help.
