The players place their tokens in a 10x10 grid, shuffle the cards, and place the cards in a pile. The players then each pick the preferred colour of their tokens and choose the starting player.
The players take turns drawing the cards from the pile. The card they select tells them how many of the opponent’s tokens they can flip to their colour. A player must turn all of the tokens that are shown on the card.
The direction in which the tokens are set, as depicted on the card, is optional. The tokens that a player turns must border tokens that are already set in the player’s colour.
The player’s first goal is to change the colour of an entire column of 10 tokens into their colour. This column is then locked until the end of the game. The player with the most columns locked in their colour is the winner.
- Cat and mouse - Flip two tokens not in contact with each other.
- Piglets - Flip three neighbouring tokens that form a line.
- Wizard - Pick a column and flip all of its tokens.
We are a group of enthusiastic gamers, makers, and designers that want to earn a living doing what we love. We’re working tirelessly to ensure you receive a quality product, and to make sure that the game is delivered on time.
Our first token prototypes were made out of cardboard and thoroughly tested until we were satisfied with our product. The following token sets were then made using materials similar to what we had envisioned the final version would be like. The same process was also applied to our test cards, to make sure they were also as expected.
Production includes creating the mould, casting tokens, printing cards, and packing sets into boxes. The cards and packing are made of printed paper and cardboard, and the tokens are made of Fasal organic material, composed mainly of wood or corn. Further information on Fasal is available on the manufacturer’s website here.
We’re working hard to get our game shipped out to you as soon as it’s made. The festive packages will be shipped out by the end of November 2015, arriving in time for Christmas, while the rest of the packages will be shipped out no later than January 2016. We acknowledge a chance of possible shipment delays in case of an unexpected increase in the volume of orders, though rest assured, it’s our priority to have you flipping Decadolo tokens as soon as possible.
The campaign has been partially funded with our personal savings, but we would need some extra funds to start proper production. The injection mould, the base for creating the tokens, presents our biggest financial challenge. Other expenses include print manufacturers costs, moulding tokens and materials such as cardboard and paper.
A big thanks to these amazing people who have been a huge support for Decadolo: Primož Fakin, Nina Lesjak, Krešimir Hagljan, Damian Buraczewski, Špela Gnezda, Alja Bizjak, Lovro Rozina, Rok Sevšek, Andraž Oražem, Rok Kostanjšek, Karmen Murn, Robert Korenjak, Astrid Arend, Kim Arend, Marjetka Rozman, Ethan Grant, Marko Žagar and Sam Mallion.
Risks and challenges
Our main focus is ensuring the production with our partners goes as planned, so that even with larger quantities, we will be able to send all the sets to backers on time. We are well prepared and have done all the necessary arrangements with the sub-contractors and manufacturers. In the event of mass orders additional help will be hired.
Since this is our first Kickstarter project, and although we have good advisers, there is always the possibility of something going differently than predicted, but we feel confident that we can rise to any challenge.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
