About this project

Why do I want this?

Escape destruction with up to 5 of your friends and family in Great Wight Games first production.

  • Simple clean mechanics
  • 2-6 player gameplay
  • REAL interaction
  • Family friendly
  • Great for Kids and Adults
  • Tons of Awesome Components
  • All in 7x7x2 inch box (180x180x50 for all you 'everyone else' folks)!

 But..what's it about?

 There's more to it, but that is the basics!  Players are trying to get away from terrible things happening on their Islands.  How best to do that but go the opposite way?  On a turn, you can move your precious Islanders, construct skip-jump islands, or draw Runes that can be used to gain a strategic advantage. 

Seems vague.

Hold up!  Let's go over it a little bit.  Incoming different-texted picture explanation!

 

Rules!

 ....and Kickstarter Exclusive Stuff

Tiki Island is a very complete and clean game.  Additionally, as a company, we are STRONGLY opposed to removing game elements already in place so they can be "added" as an exclusive item.  This makes Kickstarter addons/exclusives difficult philosophically.  We do however want backers to feel special.  After all, you are putting your faith in us!

That being said, there will be a Kickstarter exclusive rune and additional exclusive runes unlocked every $5000 dollars.  We can't tell you exactly what that will be at this point, because we don't actually have them developed. Thus, the not excluding content... Additionally, every $10000 dollars we will add another four sets of islander artwork to the Runes.

Finally, all Kickstarter copies of this game will receive a special set of Golden Islanders and a Golden Tiki (painted...of course).

As for other stretch goals...there will be HIGH tier stretch goals in blue.  We reserve the right to make more (High Tier and 5k-10k), and assume that no one will mind.

 

 Every copy of Tiki Island will come with this badge: the Ancients Badge.  This is a one time only Kickstarter exclusive reward.  This will never be released or reproduced again.  While not specific to Tiki Island, this badge signifies that you were one of the first to back Great Wight Games and that is important to us!

All pledge levels that purchase a copy of Tiki Island, our first released title, will gain exclusive access to the following:

  • Updates on our upcoming projects
  • Access to play test our future games
  • Early release benefits on other titles
  • Discounts on future Kickstarters
  • One free copy of every promotional item we ever release, shipped to your address free of charge.

Yep!  Don't worry about promos from us in the future.  We've got you covered.  As long as we exist, if you are one of our first game backers, we will send you a free copy of every promotional item we ever release free of charge. This is our way of continuing to thank backers who had faith in us from the very beginning.

Risks and challenges

Our primary challenges have been making time to get everything right, learning the ins and outs of manufacturing and trying to get ourselves known. We are passionate about this project and our company, but it just doesn't matter if no one knows we exist.

That being said, risks are something that are inherently present in everything. How we write this paragraph could send some people away. However, we are ready to tackle any issues that may arise and are confident that all of our partners in production and delivery will act quickly to resolve any possible unforeseen issues.

We come from small business families and have always believed that customer service was not just a check box that needed to be filled out. We plan to be open, honest, and forward with our backers and are certain we can deliver a great product.
