Hi everyone, we’re IceMakes, a young, vibrant game design company that is based in Hong Kong. We love playing board games and to take our passion to the next level, we started designing our own games. Since 2014, we’ve collaborated with several local non-profit organisations to start publishing our dreams.
Growing up playing countless board games and video games, we particularly enjoy those that are set in Japan’s Sengoku period. The chaotic warring states period provides a perfect background for a game story. And after designing quite a few board games ourselves, we’ve decided it’s time to create a simple but strategic card game that is easy to learn and fun to play. By combining these two elements, we created Samurai Vassal.
We’ve been brainstorming and playtesting the game for a year to refine the game mechanics to ensure high replayability. We’re happy that our friend Kwong-shing Lau, who is a brilliant artist, offered to help with the artwork of the game. Every character on the cards was hand-drawn and all the Japanese calligraphy was done by him. With the beautifully-designed characters and the gameplay that’s been tested over and over again, Samurai Vassal is a fun, fast paced card game that we hope you’ll enjoy with your friends and family.

Ever since Kickstarter was launched in 2009, it has changed the way how games were published. Bringing a game to life is no longer something that can only be done by major game publishers. Now, game enthusiasts can also share their creations with other like-minded board game fanatics around the world. And because of that, we think Kickstarter is the perfect platform for us to share our passion with everyone. We would love to get your feedback and comments here on Kickstarter before we publish it, so that we can make sure the game that is delivered to your hands is the best version that it could be.
Risks and challenges
For Samurai Vassal, most of the artwork, card box, and game rules are ready. We’ve also lined up our publishing and shipping channels so that when the campaign ends, all we need to do is just finalise a little bit of the details and everything is ready to print and shipped to you.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
