Print and Play Files
We want you to know exactly what you're getting. So why not check out the Print and Play files? All you need to do is download and print. There's 9 pages of cards (front and back), 3 pages of player boards, and 1 page for the scoreboard and dice. You'll have to provide your own dice.
Our cards are standard "poker" size (2 1/2" x 3 1/2"). You can sleeve the cards and still fit all of them in the box (2 decks of cards). The box is 5" x 8".
Pricing and Shipping
We’ve worked hard to put great components in the box for the price, which is 35% less than MSRP. We think you’ll be pleased. We’re gamers too and this means a lot to us. We've done our best to keep shipping costs low for everyone. As you see at the pledge levels, our shipping rates for a single game are:
- $3 United States
- $9 Canada
- $12 Rest of World
Who Are We?
Adam West and Dan Schnake have been designing and publishing games for 30 years as Crosscut Games Inc. They began with computer games in the 1980's and then moved into board games in 2008 with Galactic Emperor. They were one of the first companies to work with Panda Games Manufacturing.
Adam and Dan designed Ninjato, a critically acclaimed board game in 2011, publishing with Z-Man Games (now Filosofia), IELLO and White Goblin Games. They have worked with distributors Alliance and ACD throughout North America, along with Esdevium in the UK. They've worked with top artists across the globe, including Drew Baker, Glen Orbik and Peter Gifford. Most of all, Adam and Dan are gamers who care deeply about their work and will deliver a top notch product.
Risks and challenges
There's always risk with any enterprise. Though this is our first Kickstarter, it's far from our first publishing effort. We have self-published many games successfully for 30 years - both computer and board games. We know the common pitfalls, we've been through these things many times, and we've always delivered.
There are chances for delays with art, manufacturing, and shipping. We've minimized the risk with each of those elements -- we have several fine artists to rely on, we've worked with our manufacturer before, and our shipping solution is simple and reliable.
We are committed to staying in contact with you throughout the process.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
