Elements is a quick playing, resource collecting, alchemy game with plenty of "take that!" action!

Elements is a game with a modern twist on the ancient theory of Alchemy. Elements consists of four primary elements and four secondary elements. The primary elements, Water, Earth, Fire, and Air form the foundation of a substance and the secondary elements, Oil, Wood, Metal, and Power, bring the substance to life! 
 

Each substance requires between 3 and 5 elements before they are complete. The more difficult the substance is to complete, the more points you earn. Be the first Alchemist to earn 10 points and be declared the winner!

Substances can be completed naturally or artificially. Complete your substance naturally without the use of Meta, the 9th element, and earn bonus primary element gems that can be used to complete other substances or fuse them into secondary elements! 

Your actions each turn depend on your dice roll. Each dice outcome is unique, and if you roll doubles you earn a useful bonus effect! The dice add an element of luck while managing your cards and gems add an element of strategy. Will you become the ultimate alchemist and harness the hidden powers of the elements? Check out the page below and consider backing!

Each base game of Elements includes:

72 Element cards, 18 Substance Cards, 34 Gems, 2 Dice and a Rulebook

Simply put, we believe Elements is an outstanding game. Having sold numerous prototype copies at many different locations, we want to give everyone a chance to own this game at an affordable price. As our most refined, and currently best selling product, we have high hopes that Elements will be enjoyed by all who back us.

With the community funding our Kickstarter, we have the opportunity to completely revitalize the art we currently use. Notably, none of us at Rampage Games LLC is an artist. With that thought in mind, we have contracted an independent artist to revitalize all the artwork for our game. This includes updated Element Cards and Substance Cards, as well as whole new Box Art. Supporting this Kickstarter is a unique opportunity to see years of hard work and endless play testing come to fruition. However, in order to do this, we need the community's help.

Looking to the future, we believe that Elements is just the start for us. However, Elements is our main priority and all of our resources are currently focused on this campaign.

We created this company out of a love of playing and designing games. More importantly, we create games that we enjoy playing, and believe others will enjoy too. If we don't enjoy a game, we will not develop it. As a gaming company, we strive to provide games with an endless amount of fun, and ensure that no two games are alike. Our vision is to bring families together though interactive tabletop gaming and get away from the rigors and hardships of the digital world.

As a growing independent game publisher in a technology-driven society, we strive to satisfy customers with our mentally stimulating, engaging, interactive products. We create opportunities that allow families to bond over the thrill of cooperative and competitive gaming, while still challenging their mind with complex strategies. Our games provide for team play, and range from two player games to multiplayer platforms. 

Prided on producing our products in America, we also aim to keep our prices low and our quality high. How often do you buy a game and find out the quality of the game piece is far less than desired? We will not sell any product unless we are satisfied with its quality. We feel that each game we sell is a representation of us, and we do not accept anything less than what we feel is an acceptable condition. We take gaming seriously, and we hope our games bring back the passion to family game nights and gatherings that our team, and contemporaries, grew up enjoying.

Risks and challenges

At Rampages Games we pride ourselves in providing customer service to the best of our ability, however there may be unintentional problems that may arise. If this were to happen, RampageGames will attack the problem head on, to ensure continuance of the Kickstarter.

During the Kickstarter launch, we will be working with a contracted artist who has designed new artwork for the substance and element cards, along with the box art. Even though we are very confident in receiving the new artwork in a timely fashion for stretch goals and certain reward tiers, unknown breaches of the contract due to death/injury may occur. If that were to happen, we will work on solving the problem to the best of our ability. New artists may be hired in this situation.

In addition, we are also confident in producing and receiving our product in a timely fashion for the distribution to our backers. Although we have a strong relationship with our manufacturer, unknown circumstances may arise. In the event of this problem, we will work our best in finding a suitable manufacturer that can produce our product in the required time and at a similar price range.

The biggest challenge that may arise in this Kickstarter consists of acquiring enough backers to reach our goal. Although we feel our goal is achievable in the time allotted, there is always a possibility we may not reach it. In the event of this happening, we would still welcome backers to support the project in a Kickstarter re-launch, however prices may rise due to reduced mass production.

Lastly, due to any unpredictable death/injury to one of the partners, termination of this Kickstart may arise. If you have any questions, feel free to email us!
