 The Bermuda Triangle has always been shrouded in mystery and peril. For over 100 years, explorers have never come close to unraveling its enigma… until now.

You and your opponents represent competing teams who are on a quest to solve this century-old riddle; the search has brought everyone to a powerful, secret island.

Check out this helpful preview video by Board Game Brawl:

 There are three stretch goals to start and more will be added if we hit these funding levels.

(+$2,500; $11,500 total funding): I've enlisted the expertise of long-time friend Sam Hayles of Dose Productions to upgrade the art if we hit this first goal. Here are some awesome previews:

Box

You've already seen what the box top redesign will look like, but here's another view:

 Cards

Here are some card redesigns, which most have been unlocked as we've reached various pledge goals:

(+$1,500; $13,000 total funding): To save costs, the preview copies had the resources (Common and Rare decks) made with mini cards. While those work fine, they aren't as "comfortable" as poker-sized cards. This isn't a game for ants - help make everyone's lives easier.

(+$1,500; $14,500 total funding): Don't want all the components randomly placed in the box? We don't either! Help us reach this level to make sure a custom-fit divider is included.

Feel confident about your pledge as you watch what well-known bloggers and reviewers had to say about their preview copies of the game.

Risks and challenges

Although the game itself has undergone years of playtesting, this is our first attempt at crowdfunding the game. That means we're working with the background logistics for the first time.

However, the game mechanics are complete and if you've read and watched the reviews, it's been well received.

Manufacturing should be straightforward. There are no complicated boards or miniatures to create, as this is primarily a card game. We have a handful of manufacturing quotes already (based on various funding levels) and shipping methods have been researched and taken into account. I've already shipped a preview copy to the United Kingdom without running into any problems with customs.

Most importantly, backers will receive frequent updates; we care just as much as you about making this game a reality. If the game is funded, we'll do whatever it takes to bring it to life - regardless of the hurdles that creep up.
