About

Rojikku or Logic is an anime version of chess. The traditional Kings, Queens, Rooks, Bishops, Knights and Pawns have been replaced by the Sasaki Clan (the black pieces) and the Fukui Clan (the white pieces).

.The purpose of this Kickstarter:

I would like to be able to make:

  • At least 300 miniatures sets 
  • At least 100 Token charm sets
  • At least 100 3D paper model sets
  • At least 100 standee sets
  • And the printing of the Manga Rule Book

I need the support of Kickstarter to make this a reality. 

  Akihiko and Raiden both experienced tragedy during their childhood and grew up as brothers and fellow samurais. But  greed and rivalry caused the two 'brothers' to become enemies. They are constantly trying to out think each other so that they can gain the upper hand and ensure their clan reign supreme. 

The Manga Rule Book Art 

 The Manga Rule Book will feature bios on each character.

You get some extras with pledges over £10.00

 

 I have been doing creative projects for years (for work and for friends). I wanted to develop one of the many ideas I have been working on. Rojikku is my way of bringing a fun anime twist to chess. Chess is great but converting the pieces to mystical characters is a cool way to play especially if you are a fan of the genre.

The inspiration for Rojikku came about through studying at the School of Oriental and African Studies where I gained a deep appreciation for East Asian culture. 

All artwork and the video were done by my friend (who did his own Kickstarter) using a simple drawing tablet, anime and manga software.

Manufacturing

I have secured some great companies who will be producing the sets. Himalaya Studios in the US have been through the Kickstarter process and they will be producing the miniatures and I have an amazing company in the UK who will produce the tokens and stickers etc. These companies have the experience in producing high quality, high volume orders for the gaming and retail industries.

I will be shipping orders to the UK, EU and the Rest of the World from the UK and I have arranged for a pallet (or more) to ship directly to the US and will then be distributed to the US backers to try and minimise the cost to the backers. 

Thank you for visiting my project !!!! Please share with your friends !

If you have any questions, please contact sharine[at]rojikkuworld.com.

Risks and challenges

Most of the artwork is completed , so I foresee some of my challenges being:

1. Ensuring manufacture of the game and all rewards are of the highest quality possible

2. The shipping of the game and rewards are done on or before the stated time.

3. The costs stay within the set budget

I have already lined up experienced manufacturers who have the capacity and experience to fulfill the required quantities as well as any larger orders that may be required.
