About this project

Keeper's Dissension is an intense war-game with grid-movement, deck building, and resource management!

Players will battle it out in this great civil war, attempting to destroy each other’s LifeForces with their powerful Warriors and any resources they may have at their disposal! With one eye on the board, and the other on the Economy, Keeper’s Dissension will demand all of your greatest strategies to defeat your enemy and emerge the victor! The game is over when you destroy your enemy's LifeForce, emerging victorious!

Our board game is made up of high quality components from glass gem tokens to extra durable and vibrant neoprene playmats for smooth gameplay! We went all out on getting you the best components right off the bat because we feel that if this game is funded, it should be a quality game that we can all be proud of!

In Keeper's Dissension, both players will be in control of an army of Warriors who all possess special abilities and can move across the board to attack their enemies.

We have been working and pouring all of our resources into making this game the best strategy game possible! But now we need your help to make it a reality! Getting in early in backing Keeper's Dissension will allow you to not only get the game before it hits the shelves, but also you will receive exclusive rewards and limited items, as well as be instrumental in deciding which themes are available as expansions to the game!

Similar games to Keeper's Dissension are Chess, Summoner's War, Stratego, and other amazing games, but there are many things that makes this game considerably different! One awesome feature is the 70 Keeper Ability deck that players will use throughout the game that can change the rules of the game in a flash and are cause for great re-playabilty and adapting on the fly! The constant struggle to control the Economy is also an original and engaging function where players will be either hoarding resources from their opponents or using resources to gain powerful advantages on the board! There are many more elements to Keeper's Dissension that will demand your utmost attention to bettering your foes and will make it a great addition to your board game collection!

Also, click here to check out a great review by TheDiceHaveIt where they go in depth on gameplay and their experience playing the game!

In addition to this game, we have great plans for two new games on the horizon! Two completely separate games that are still connected through the rich storyline of Keeper's Dissension! By backing this project and making it a success, you will be empowering us to be able to continue unraveling this amazing world of Keeper's Dissension! 

Be sure to check out the epic story below and discover the dark tale that lead up to this great civil war!

"Eons ago, when worlds were protected by Keepers, a great darkness known as the Dark Fester was discovered on the outskirts of the universe. This entity had an endless hunger for consuming life, and began spreading at an alarming rate throughout the worlds. In response, the Keepers joined forces to battle this new evil, but to no avail; for the Dark Fester’s source of strength was in the feeding on their own life energy, growing stronger as the Keepers grew weaker. In a last attempt to find success, the Keepers removed their LifeForces, leaving them in the protection of powerful Guardians on their home planets. With their LifeForces aside, the Keepers were able to regenerate their bodies in the event of destruction, and now - no longer strengthening the Dark Fester - they were able to finally engage it head on. Triumphantly, they subdued the Dark Fester and sent it back from where it came, immediately placing safeguards to prevent the Dark Fester from ever returning. Their victory was bittersweet, however, for in the midst of this struggle, a split had arisen over leadership, resulting in a great civil war of the Keepers known as the Keeper’s Dissension...."

That's right! We have created an online simulation of our game for you to try out right now if you download Tabletop Simulator off of Steam! Keep in mind, you will not get the board game feel that only a real physical copy of our game can, but you will get a good idea for how the game plays while you wait for your copy to come in the mail! Click the icon below to go to our page on Steam Workshop.

Using QR code scanning technology, we will be able to track and rank individual players during casual play and tournaments! How it will work is each player will receive a special card with a unique QR code, and players will scan their cards at the beginning of their games and at the end, recording the duration of the game, who won, and who lost, ranking both accordingly. Ranked players will have access to colored versions of their Keeper deck to show off their skill and also to get into special events!

If we reach our funding goal, we will be introducing 4 new factions with new themed cards, mats, and unique Keeper Ultimates! And the best part is, you, the backers, will be voting on which ones are picked out of the ten listed below! The more you back, the more votes you will receive towards which faction you are wanting. Votes will be collected at the end of the campaign, and the top 4 voted factions will be created. These new decks will be available through reward tiers and stretch goals, as well as all factions voted-in will be available to order as add-ons through our website after the Kickstarter has been funded.  

Rough examples of future factions below. World names and lore will be added when individual factions are voted in by backers.

How to vote? We will launch a poll on our website to collect votes according to each backer after the campaign has been funded.

Shipping

After a lot of research, consideration, and hearing about horror stories here on Kickstarter, we finally decided to individualize shipping per backer after the campaign was funded. This allows us to avoid creating a general overly priced amount for everyone, and will allow for saving on shipping for each backer as you will only pay what it will cost to get our game to your house, and no one else. Due to our inclusion of two high quality neoprene mats, our game box weighs around 4lbs and will be shipped in a large box to keep the mats from being wrinkled or any of our components damaged. See below on estimates for several main countries.

China- $5.48

United Kingdom- $28.37

Canada- $36.64

Germany- $28.13

Japan- $18.63

United States of America- $13.75

France- $28.36

Switzerland- $28.36

Australia- $37.05

Thailand- $26.68

Netherlands- $28.35

Spain- $28.35

Risks and challenges

We have been working very hard on finding the best manufacturer with the lowest prices and highest quality. There are always unforeseen hurdles to overcome however, and we are preparing for all possible issues so that we can deliver a quality game on time and in good shape come October!

Risks would be that we have issues with manufacturing and shipping the games to our backers. Our challenge will be dealing with any issues that come our way, and for not having as much experience in this area as other big name board game companies have under their belt.

But we promise to deliver our game to you no matter what issues we come across, and to be transparent and responsive to all questions, concerns, and feedback throughout this process!
