About this project

WE ARE FUNDED!  We are now reaching for a stretch goal of $5000.  At $4000, each backed copy will come with a CUSTOM pair of Castle Dash dice with the Sword Soldier etched into the '1' face:

At $5000 every backed copy will come with a BONUS set of plastic coins for each player color (including Black).  They'll be a thicker coin, like so:

Castle Dash is 5th Street Games' first title.  We printed a short run to test what people thought about the game, and they liked it!

Dice Tower:  http://www.dicetower.com/game_reviews/c/castle-dash.html

With the first run about sold out, it's time to run a major printing!  The funds pledged to this Kickstarter campaign will go towards producing Castle Dash's next run with better components:  better soldier pieces, printed punch-out coins, and a slick two-piece box!  Swanky.

Any excess funds pledged will go towards a larger print run of Castle Dash, shipping, and future 5th Street Games projects.  We have three additional games ready to go:

  • Crow and the Pitcher, a trick-taking game by Sean MacDonald based on Aesop's fable of the same name
  • Return of Cthulhu, a 2-Player game of saving the world or destroying it, by Phil Kilcrease
  • Make Your Case, a 2-Player game of courtroom control by Phil Kilcrease

Thanks for your support!

FAQ

  • Kickstarter is a risk-free crowdsource funding platform for creative projects. Backers pledge to fund projects they like in exchange for rewards at different levels of pledging.

    HOWEVER: the money pledged is collected only if the project meets its funding goal. If the goal is missed by even $1, nobody is charged for their pledges. There is no risk if the project misses its goal.

  • -The 3 & 5 player forms of the game have been improved with the Central Castle variant, which places a castle in the center of the table to sit 'across' from every player. This forces players to still defend the front of their castles.

    -Better Soldier pawns. See the updates for pics: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1892930431/castle-dash-the-speedy-siege-game/posts

    -Better box. The first edition was in a VHS box. This printing will be in an actual 2-part board game box.

    -Punch-out cardboard coins. This edition will use printed tokens for the cannonballs and coins instead of plastic discs.

    -Better Soldier Pawns. You can see them in Update #4.

    -Larger Castle Castle Cards. You can see the new size in Update #5.

  • Why, yes! Each copy of Castle Dash will come with a seventh playable color in the Black Castle Promo Pack, which includes everything needed to play Castle Dash as the Black Kingdom.

    ALSO, every copy of Castle Dash will come with a Castle Dash Soldier lapel pin. Both of these exclusives will ONLY be available to Kickstarter backers.

    Select pledge levels will also receive a Soldier Pawn Upgrade Pack for each copy of the game received. The $30, $50, and $60 'KNIGHT' level will include Soldier Pawns as pictured in Update 2.
