Krosmaster Arena is a miniatures board game that is designed around using cute anime warriors to take on your opponents!

Welcome to the Krosmoz. The Demons of the Hours and Minutes have finally found a hobby worthy of their cruel hearts... the Arena! The idea is simple. They select (read: abduct) warriors from across many lands and ages and whisk them away to the Arena, where the enslaved gladiators must fight for their souls and the chance to become the ultimate champion.

Working with Ankama, we are excited to bring the worlds of Dofus and Wakfu to your tabletop. Welcome to Krosmaster: Arena.

What is Krosmaster: Arena?

Krosmaster: Arena is a Player vs Player-oriented board game that offers the craftiest tacticians among you the chance to challenge other players in heated battle. All players build their team using a pre-deterimined method, either a point system, draft, or at random. Utilize your team's various talents and abilities to create a powerful fighting force. Every figure has a point value attached to it to help balance things out. Only those who are able to create a strong, yet versatile, strategy will prevail!

Krosmaster Arena Base Game MSRP $80.00
Krosmaster Arena Base Game MSRP $80.00

Pledge Level #11

The next $500 pledge level that was added at the final days of the campaign. Many people were asking if they could trade in their XXL figure and get a carrying case instead, so we decided to offer up this level - The Carrying Case Edition - as an easy way for them to do so, and open up more XXL versions for the fans that really wanted them as they were all sold out!

This level is exactly like the others, with the only difference being that instead of an XXL figure you get a carrying case, that will ship separately in July along with the dice upgrade and the collector's coin.

Special add on for just the $300 and $500 levels!

Special limited edition Dice Tower! All $300 and $500 backers will receive a special limited edition Krosmaster Kickstater Benevolant Backer Dice Tower! Or as I like to call it, the KKBB Dice Tower. This is an exclusive item that will only be going to the upper level backers!

ALSO - JUST ANNOUNCED - ALL $500 PLEDGES WILL RECEIVE 2 FULL SETS OF THE 8 PROMO FIGURES!

Note- At all pledge levels, you will receive an online code for each figure you would get at that level. For instance, the Starter level will receive codes for each of the 8 figures in the base game, as well as the code for Yugo. At the Collector's Edition, you would receive codes for all 8 figures in the base game, Yugo, Amelia, as well as codes for the 12 figures received in the expansion packs.These codes can be used to unlock the figures for play in the online game!

Optional Items

Add on #1 - Kama Coins


You must have a pledge level of $100 or more to add one of these terrain sets to your pledge:

Kama Coin (shown pictured next to Gallon of Glory Token)
Kama Coin (shown pictured next to Gallon of Glory Token)

This is a set of 60 Metallized Kama Coins to replace the cardboard ones that come with the game.This is a token set add-on, and one which we think you will really like! The price for this add-on is $35.

Add on #2 - Gobball Plushie

Gobball Plushie
Gobball Plushie

This cute little Plushie Gobball toy is available as an add on for only $12.00! It is available as an add-on to anyone that has pledged $75+. This is a little over 6" tall. And cute. And you must have.

Add on #3 - Black Bow Meow Plushie 

Black Bow Meow
Black Bow Meow

You can find the Black Bow Meow hiding behind bushes in the game ready to pounce! Also available to anyone who has pledged $75+. He is an add on for $10.00, and also - right about 6" tall.

Add on #4 - Terrain set: $50

You must have a pledge level of $100 or more to add one of these terrain sets to your pledge:

Meticulously Hand Painted Resin terrain sculpts of the following

  • 8 Trees
  • 8 Bushes
  • 4 Crates


Add on #5 - Token upgrades: $75


You must have a pledge level of $100 or more to add one of these token sets to your pledge:

  • 2 Waterbomb Tokens
  • 1 Wabbit Token
  • 1 Lost Puppet Token
  • 1 Crazy Puppet Token
  • 2 Sacrificed Puppet Token
  • 1 Blocking Puppet Token
  • 2 Tornadobomb Tokens
  • 2 Incendiary Bomb Tokens
  • 1 Dead Trap Token
  • 3 Tofu Tokens
  • 1 Bouftou Token
  • 15 Metallic Gallons of Glory Tokens

Add on #6 - Carrying Case: $50

This case is still a work in progress, but this is the current artwork that we are planning on doing. It will be large enough to hold 48 figures and cards. The outside will be metal, the inside will be foam. I think you will agree that this will be a very nice case to hold your figures in.

The MSRP for this case will be $50, and the add on price for it through Kickstarter is also $50 with free shipping ($20 additional for international orders), but on top of that you will ALSO be getting a FULL SET OF 42 5"X7" OVERSIZED CARDS! This will include the figures from the base game, the 8 promo figures, AND the 26 additional figures that will be released in expansions!

The one down side to this is that it will not be available in time to ship with the game in June, so this will be an additional shipment going out in July. 

Add on #7: The Krosmaster T-Shirt! - $20.00

This shirt has a great graphic with the Queen of the Tofus and the King of the Gobballs! Show your support for Krosmaster with this awesome shirt!

The add on is $20 for this awesome shirt! Just pledge an additional $20 and when you get the survey at the end of the campaign let us know what size you want!

These will ship alongside the games in June.

Available in S, M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL, 4XL

Add on #7: 2x cards - $15.00

Do to popular demand, we have decided to offer up the full set of 42 2x cards at a low price of only $15.00! These cards are double the size of normal cards - 5"x7" and will be a great addition to your game. These are the same card sets being offered up with the carrying case - but we had many requests from people that wanted the cards but not the case, so we are offering them up both ways. If you want 2 sets of cards, you can pledge for the case and this set of cards for $65.00

Add on #8: 2nd dice set! - $10.00

We feel pretty confident that the $325,000 stretch goal will be met in the next few days, so we are opening up the dice sets now as an add on. You can pledge an additional $10 to add on a 2nd set of dice! These will ship out in July, separately, free of charge.

This is a full set of 8 translucent etched dice, 4 in blue and 4 in purple.

Stretch Goals

We have more limited edition promos to be given out as Stretch Goals as well! Because of the extra cost ofincluding these, we are only giving out stretch goals to pledges of $100 or more.

The first stretch goal is planned at $100,000 - the Eva figure!

STRETCH GOAL #2

Percedal
Percedal

Announcing....Percedal! The "nightcrawler" of the game, Percedal can jump in and ShuShu Sword your opponent's characters. Tons of fun to play, and a great add on to the game! Percedal will be unlocked as soon as we reach $200,000 in pledges!

Stretch Goal #3

And now for something a little different...a Japanime Games Facebook "like" Stretch Goal! We just launched a new Facebook page and we want to use this to keep in touch with our fans! As an incentive to get you all to go like our new Facebook page, we are announcing a special Stretch Goal for Argon Gass! If we reach 5,000 "likes" by the end of our campaign, everyone who pledged $100 or more will receive Argon Gass! Go here ~> https://www.facebook.com/JapanimeGames

Update - Argon Gass will be unlocked if we reach 4,000 likes or $400,000 in pledges!

Stretch Goal #4 (and add on #6)

Some great news! Things are moving forward with making a carrying case for your figures! This is in the preliminary design phase so I don't have an actual image for you yet. The bad news is that we need a good amount to go towards the investment cost of making these, so we decided to put these up as our next stretch goal. Once we hit $250,000 we are going to unlock these and make them available as an add-on for your pledge.

The "nitty gritty" on them is this. They are going to be made with wood paneling, and a thin metal overlay, with foam inserts for holding the figures. There will a few different sizes of "pockets" to hold your miniatures as some are slightly taller than others. The cases will hold up to 48 Krosmaster figures, and also have a spot for holding the cards for each figure. These are going to be awesome, and I'm looking forward to showing you some designs as soon as we get to $250,000!

The expected MSRP on these cases is going to be $50/case.

One last thing - as stated previously, production started on Krosmaster as soon as we were able to confirm funding (the day after we posted on Kickstarter!), but this is a new product and we will not have it in time to ship alongside the game. We obviously don't want to delay shipping your games out to you, so the plan is to ship the cases out separately in July. Beyond that we also have a few other things in mind that won't be available until July, so there will be future stretch goals planned on that can ship with the case!

Stretch Goal #5 - $300,000

You've been waiting for him, here he is...Ruel Stroud! He will be unlocked at....you guessed it, $300,000 - and you will love this guy and his super special spectral shovel!

Stretch goal #6 - $325,000

New upgraded Dice sets! These dice look great and they are engraved and translucent! The drawback is this...we won't be able to get these until late June. We don't want to hold up your games for these stretch goals. We've done a lot of thinking about how we can make this work, so here is the plan - if we hit $325,000 in funding we are going to make these dice sets and send them to you as an additional FREE stretch goal. We tried and tried, but we just couldn't get them in time to add them on to the games that will be shipping out in June.

Stretch goal #7 - $350,000

Special Collector's coin! If we reach $350,000 in funding we will make these, and they will be included with the dice shipments that go out in June. These coins will look great, be made out of the same material as the Kama Coins and the Gallons of Glory upgrades, and will be approximately 1 inch in diameter.

Stretch goal #8 - $350,000

JUST ANNOUNCED - All pledges at $100+ will receive a random promo figure added into their shipment - and if we get to $350,000 you will also receive a 2nd promo figure added in! This is in addition to the collector's coin!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The largest hurdles we have experienced in our previous projects have been overly ambitious end dates. To combat this we have carefully mapped out our project. We believe that we can meet the delivery goals of this project and have worked in time to compensate for the unexpected. We are also adopting a much more strict focus on our Kickstarter project, and have incorporated a Facebook page and will be communicating with you regularly regarding the project.

We have already successfully completed two projects through Kickstarter, and we have every intention of making this one our best project yet by far!
