About this project
Link to pre-orders here.
In Fallen City of Karez, each player will take the role of a lord of one of the guilds who seek to tighten their grasp on the rising city. The players will strive to maintain a balance between keeping the city safe for its citizens by sending exploration parties to defeat any threats, and at the same time attracting to the emerging city new adventurers wishing to fill their pockets with fortunes and their names with glory.
The Art of Karez:
As an emerging publishing company we like to get our production values to the highest quality we can. We hire the most talented professionals in order to make this game a total experience, not only by its great gameplay but through every card and token a player holds in his hand. Our new graphic designer, Antonis Papantoniou gave the game its definitive look as he did with his previous board games (Drum roll, Briefcase and Among the stars). Here are some examples of our quest to excellence:

Father Geek Review:
"This is truly a “gamer’s game” and the semi-cooperative element was a big hit"...
"Fallen City of Karez is a big game where strategy and mental stamina is essential".

Not sure yet?
You liked the game and wish to try out before pledging, no problem! I designed a solo adventure where you can print 1 page only and you will be able to experience encountering monsters and surviving deadly traps in our unique combat system. You can download the adventure here . Note: this is pre-published prototype art.
Our company has developed the game to a point where we are ready to produce it. As this is our first published game board project, our initial capital is very limited and we need your help to get a better production value for the game. Each backer can literally make the game better by allowing us to invest on more luxurious components than our very limited budget can support.
A successful campaign will also allow our designer to push forward additional game designs towards publication. Please visit our website to find out more.

Mini Expansion - The Golden Dragon:
This new guild house is available with the "Adventurers of Karez" pledge level and up.
The Golden Dragon Guild is one of the oldest guild houses in the known world, its mysterious demeanor and deity fed the rumors tying them to the destruction of Karez. The player who controls the lord of the Golden Dragon guild will conspire to destroy the city of Karez! If Karez does not become a City by the end of the game, this player wins the game and all the other players lose.
As the king leaves Karez to its ruins, the Golden Dragon's worshipers can finally construct their secret temple and resurrect their beloved deity.
Many thanks to all contributors for your interest and support of our project.
You simply increase your pledge by adding 35$. You will get the box set of 6 minis (Heroes:1 Wizard, 1 Cleric,1 Ranger,1 Rogue, 1 Knight and 1 Templar) + all the minis stretch goals achieved.
Minis are a very cool visual addition to the game. The board game is designed so you can play it without minis.
The minis will have further use as I am trying to design a bonus game (micro dungeon crawler) inside the original game so you will get 2 for 1 when you add the minis!
Each backer will get to fill out a survey (after funding ends successfully) where you may mark the option - "Essen pick-up" instead of your mailing address.
Yes. You can contact us for more information about promotional kits for retailers.
No. Just make a normal pledge and come over our booth (Hall 7 115) to pick it up.
