• One to Ten Players 

• Normal Gametime (depending on # of players) 30min - 1hour 

The Dark Queen (otherwise known as the Evil Queen), the Queen of Hearts, and the Snow Queen; 3 of the most powerful queens of all realms join forces with the common goal of wiping the population completely, in order to start anew and create a utopia with no poverty, crime, or sickness, all designed with their vision and unquestionable control.

To prevent history from repeating itself, they agree to select a champion to lead the new civilization and firmly guide the people based on knowledge from the past world. This champion must have a strong will, strength, magic, intelligence, persuasive abilities and is proven to be a survivor. Thus the Queens banished all Heroes and Villains into a fierce competition to see who will survive the Fairytale Games. There will be only one.

Before the start of the game, each player selects their character, takes their respective “Player Card” and removes their character card from the “Bonus Deck”. In addition, each player takes a card from the “Item Deck”, reveals it and puts it on their “Player Card”. Players then  randomly shuffle together 30 Event Cards to form the "Event Deck." Shuffle and separate the different decks of cards on the table to the right of the playing area. These decks represent the different locations, events, quests, items and battles the players will experience during their game. Draw your first location card, then let the games begins!

Once in battle, you and your opponent will temporarily play from a shared 50 card "Battle Deck" in place of your main deck. The battle deck will have a Attack, Defense, Special Ability, and Escape Cards. You will use dice to determine how much damage was dealt from an attack, how much can you absorb from an attack, or what ability you can use from your Main Character player card. And if you pull an escape card, players can use it to end the battle, though at a high risk of failure and a sacrifice for success.

WHY KICKSTARTER?

Besides raising funds to commission our 12 talented artists to complete the 200+ unique pieces artwork for the game, we'll be investing in quality material for our player pieces, tokens, and card stock. Kickstarter will also be a great way for us to connect to our growing number of fans and open our doors so you can been there with us from the very beginning of production. And depending on our backer-base, Kickstarter will allow us to be able to offer great rewards that we normally couldn't offer right away.

WHAT DO WE HOPE TO ACHIEVE?
We want to bring a solid game that would be enjoyed by 1 to 10 players of all demographics. The game offers a theme that's really unique with many ways to play; no matter if you want to tag-team with friends, sweet-talk yourself out of crosshairs, or backstab your partner at the most strategic moment. With the campaign itself, we're excited to bring this edgy theme of fairytale survival to your tables, along with a few cool extras to sincerely show our appreciation for your support.

Risks and challenges

Shipping costs have been the bane of most projects and with Kickstarter. Increasing costs have made shipping games internationally costly for backers and campaigners alike. To address this, we try to absorb some of the costs ourselves and use a piggyback method of sending multiple packages to different fulfillment sources in the various international locations. Also, we have a tier, Hansel & Gretel, that will save shipping costs through backing together with a friend. Though it may not be extremely apparent at first, we are trying different ways to make things easier for our awesome international backers.

Artistic Justice Games is running the Kickstarter campaign with the assistance of Kickin It Games, bringing their combined knowledge and skills together to ensure that everything goes as smoothly as possible. If you have any questions or queries, the Kickin' It team will be there to assist as quickly as they can.

With the weight of countless previous Kickstarter campaigns behind them, they are able to deal with setbacks professionally while keeping you, the backer, informed with what's happening every step of the way - and not just while the campaign is running. When funding closes and production starts, we aim to provide the most up-to-date information possible regarding each stage of Fairytale Games: The Battle Royale journey to your tabletop.

We believe that honesty is as important as regular contact with our backers. You can expect the very best from us, no matter what. By working with high quality production facilities that we've dealt with following previous campaigns, we are confident that we'll be able to deliver the game in a timely manner. Our exacting standards mean that you're guaranteed to get a great game.
