Recent Play-testing and Final Tweaking!
Recent Play-testing and Final Tweaking!
The field has two identical sides, with slot for active players, player decks, power decks, general play cards, and the field distance indicator.
Each team has a full side of 15 players, with each player being a unique character with stats that reflect their position in the team. The players have their playing stats one the front of the card, for quick and easy viewing during the game.

Winger - Catch me if you can! Prop - Boy, you don't want ME to catch you!
Flanker - Try and sidestep all you want, pretty boy, I'm turning your legs into skittles!
"You look fast, kid, but you'll need more than a fancy sidestep to get past me..."
Cards are easily identified for their use by border colour. Green - Offensive play, Red - Defensive play, Yellow - Any time (per rules), Blue - Play Immediately.
Some cards need a little timing to maximise effect, but other are just brutal any time!

Well in short, you get the most fun sports game you will ever play!

But to put a finer point on it, the Kickstarter RTG game gives you the following:

  • RTG Game Box
  • Folding game board
  • 30 player cards (two teams)
  • 100 General Play cards
  • 3D Ball Miniature
  • 4 Coach cards
  • 4 Sin Bin cards
  • 4 help cards
  • 20 rugby ball score tokens
  • 4 head-gear tokens
  • Two 10-sided dice
  • Field distance marker standee
  • Coin toss token
  • Rule Book
Because there is never too much of a good thing.....

 The substitution pack adds a whole new dimension to Rugby: The Game. RTG plays great as the base game, but adding subs creates an exciting new dynamic to really get the adrenaline pumping.

Firstly we have the Star players. Two full teams of them! These guys are on another level, with better stats and a few player-specific abilities that give them the edge. The overall gameplay is still pretty balanced, but played right, you know when these guys are on the field!

The players can only come on when you use one of your substitution cards (generally 5 in a game). These cards have rules which dictate when they can be used, and are determined by points-difference, total points scored, game stage (such as "play at half time"), and such. Also, the player is randomly selected (with the subs card dictating "Forward" or "Back" deck only), so you don't know who you will get. Oh, the anticipation is already killing me!

Neither can we! I mean, we're more excited than a Hooker seeing a ball drop right between the legs... So check out the links below for more cool stuff!

Risks and challenges

Our game is practically ready for production. We have carried out development and play-testing for almost five years now, and have it running like a mean machine.
The artwork and design is 80% complete, with funding providing the final touches.
We have production costs finalised, and once our target is reached, we will be able to schedule production.
This game WILL go live, we're more stoked than a Full-Back with clean boots for the team photo, and our amazing backers will not be disappointed.
We currently estimate delivery of the final game by April 2020.
