Throne Wars is the culmination of skills from a broad selection of Ichthys Games top minds.

This game is a fast paced tactical card game that puts the players in control of a medieval kingdom that is warring with a neighboring kingdom. In this game, players will use the Dice Slide mechanic to send out their peasants to do work.

Depending on how much influence (how well you roll) you hold over these peasants, sometimes the peasants comply and sometimes they don't. However, directing them towards the jobs that will yield the best results is an important decision!

The story of Throne Wars development starts over a year ago. Ichthys Games was just coming out of CharCon 2011 (a local gaming con) and two of our members had won the board game design contest with a game they had made (Perhaps to be published by us? Stay tuned!). After that win, they wanted to come up with a product that would allow us to really get into this market. We all sat down and these two members came to us with an idea. Something delightfully simple to produce and wonderfully tactical in game-play.

Risks and challenges

Throughout the time we have spent on our project, we have strived to maintain an atmosphere of open communication with our playtesters and fans. Locally this has been very easy. We have a gaming group that our company runs called 3rd Friday Board Games and through this we have been able to reach a lot of people for fellowship with the gaming community as well as introducing some of our gaming designs.
However, moving forward we are hoping to expand this fellowship to the online community as well so that our product can get into as many people's hands as possible. We believe that we have a very competitive and alluring game that is both fast paced and interactive. Moving forward, one of our main challenges will be to engage the online community and get them as excited about our product as we are.
We here at Ichthys Games believe that we will be able to accomplish this online presence through interacting and participating in online discussions on BoardGameGeek and producing some Vlogs that will update our fans and expand our brand and product into the social media realm and YouTube. Through this interaction and honest communication, we believe that our players will want to be involved in this adventure.
