What is this and how is it different?

Simply, yet satisfying. This game is designed to be a complete role playing game in a 40 page book using perforated cards for everything from equipment to quests. No dice, no complex rules. Designed for as young as 8 year old, but quick and enjoyable for any age.

The game will be fully illustrated (video does contain actual artwork for equipment and monsters, I will display it as it's available).  The rules are only 10 pages, plus additional advanced rules for older players to enjoy, It also includes:

  • Character sheets have the five values - strength, speed, attack, defense, and magic that's all that's needed, skill cards unique to player classes - archers, fighters, paladins, and magus;

  • 6 full color maps that split into tile cards that reveal monsters, dangers, and scouting rewards (adds replayability);

  •  Over 20 unique monster cards (over 50 total) exquisitely draw and illustrated on perforated card stock;

  • Danger cards and reward items;
  • 5 quests and 4 scenarios to play through to learn character back stories and save the land;                                                                 
Quest Cards

  • An expansion pack with 2 additional quests, 3 monsters and 4 new scouting cards.

The quests, characters and monsters are easily customizable and I will make available templates to create your own.

Why did I decide to make this? (Click to see video)

As a father of three kids (ages 10, 11, 14) I've wanted to introduce them to the exciting and imaginative world of role playing. I've searched for good, old-fashioned board games that contain the elements of make-believe, story advancement, and teamwork. I couldn't find any. So my kids and I made our own.

It was a hit! We sat down every weekend to play. I watched as they began interacting, cooperating, and growing. They learned to think outside the box and care about other players. They even learned some math and history along the way.

Now I want to share this idea with game publishers and families around the world. I need your help. I need a little seed money to make a nice demo, specifically to buy a book binder, pay the illustrator and enter in gaming expos. In the end the game will be in book form (approx. 40 pages), with punch out pieces, and chipboard characters. There will be no need for dice or pencils. The entire RPG is contained on the perforated cards inside the book. 

I am very grateful that you took time to read this and hope that you will contribute to my cause.

Risks and challenges

The two major challenges are building the prototype and getting the product to market. For the prototype I need a book binder, paper perforator, and to pay the illustrator. The kickstarter goal will cover these costs and make a professional looking game that I market. I will be able to personally sell the product at that point and fulfill the Kickstarter rewards.

In addition, I plan to overcome the challenge of marketing by going to trade shows around the country to pitch the game and provide a demo to publishers, retailers, and distributors.
