Vast: The Crystal Caverns - The How to Play Series
An awesome video series on how to play the game Vast: The Crystal Caverns by Leder Games, along with its expansions.
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Thu, April 25 2019 4:04 AM UTC +00:00.
My name is Seth Cloud, and I am the operator of a channel named LonelyMan BGs, where I create high quality videos on how to play board games.
With your help, I'm looking to create an awesome video series on how to play the game Vast: The Crystal Caverns, as well as its expansions.
Vast: The Crystal Caverns is notoriously difficult to explain. Just like Leder Game's other asymmetrical game, Root, each character has its own rules, but these are even more detailed.
Here's an example character from Root, the Vagabond:
If this series is funded, I will be creating a video like this for each of the characters. This will make it easier for you to send certain videos to your friends so that they can learn a specific character, along with the general rules.
So, why should you spend your hard-earned money on some videos?
Teach Your Friends
- Do you know how many rulebooks are included in just the expansion of this game? There are three. Three separate rulebooks. That's why you need me. I can explain all the rulebooks, and I can do so with style.
High Quality Video
- As my previous work can attest, I strive to provide the highest quality camera work possible. Just check out that Root series I did, or just about any video on my channel!
Motion Graphics & Animations
- Throughout the videos, small animations will light up areas on the map, cards will pop up on screen, and the characters will move around the map from tile to tile. This is done in order to best demonstrate how to play the game.
Professional Voice Over
- You will have my voice to guide you along the way, as I explain each rule in the game.
Now, let's get into the breakdown of what videos will be created.
Vast: The Crystal Caverns | Game Overview
Vast: The Crystal Caverns | General Rules
Vast: The Crystal Caverns | The Knight
Vast: The Crystal Caverns | The Goblins
Vast: The Crystal Caverns | The Dragon
Vast: The Crystal Caverns | The Cave
Vast: The Crystal Caverns | The Thief
Vast: The Fearsome Foes | Expansion Overview
Vast: The Fearsome Foes | The Nightmare Unicorn
Vast: The Fearsome Foes | The Ghoul
Vast: The Fearsome Foes | The Ghost
The expansion of the game, Vast: The Fearsome Foes, has three different characters. But, each of these characters can be deployed in two ways. I want to cover the base style of playing each character for sure, which is why they are shown above.
But I also want to include the variations on each character. Therefore, if we hit a funding of $500 or more on this Kickstarter, I will be adding in three additional videos, one for each of the variations of the above expansion characters.
- The Shadow Unicorn - Non-player role that can be added to solo or multiplayer games.
- The Vile Ghoul - Replaces the Goblins, similar to the normal Ghoul.
- The Cave Ghost - Replaces the Cave. Has melded powers of the Ghost and the Cave.
Risks and challenges
There are no risks or challenges. If this is funded, I will create a series of how to play videos for Vast: The Crystal Caverns, as well as its expansions. These will be slated to release throughout May 2019, and may go into June 2019.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
