About

Saving Time & Gods of Adventure

8th Summit is proud to present two great games: Saving Time and Gods of Adventure. Back one (or both) during this Kickstarter campaign! Two projects in one Kickstarter with 16  stretch goals every $5,000! Receive all stretch goals by backing both games, or back just one game and receive that game's stretch goals.

What makes Gods of Adventure unique? Gods of Adventure is not your traditional dungeon crawl. Instead players are mythical gods that are vying to influence a group of heroes fighting through a dungeon. The gods receive Tribute from the heroes in recognition of their heavenly omnipotence. The god with the most influence at the end of the game wins. Gods of Adventure is a card game with a unique stacking mechanic unlike any other game.

What makes Saving Time unique? First off, there are not a lot of great time travel games on the market, so we knew we had to publish this one. Saving Time contains no dice, is strategic, and does something very well that few games have been able to accomplish: integration of time travel thematics with game mechanics. The theme integration works extremely well in a genre where the interaction of this theme with mechanics often lacks. This game receives a lot of praise from gamers and non-gamers alike at conventions.

Both Saving Time and Gods of Adventure are easily expandable without harming the core mechanics and this is why we have the opportunity to bring you so many stretch goals.  For this reason we wanted to offer them together with stretch goals every 5k of the initial 100k of the kickstarter.  Let's unlock them all!

Time Tile Stretch Goals for Saving Time: The Time Tiles in the base game of Saving Time all work in a similar manner.  However, Time Tiles offered through kickstarter will have different mechanisms that add more variety to gameplay, and more points in history.

Dungeon Card Stretch Goals for Gods of Adventure:  In Gods of Adventure, players play through 3-4 Dungeon Cards (out of 12 in the base game).  This Kickstarter offers many more through Stretch Goal Dungeon. Cards to add variety and difficulty.

Note: While games are fully developed, final print components may differ somewhat from images presented here as we finalize and continue playtesting both games.

Saving Time

 Players: 1-4

Time: 30-45 minutes

Designers: Richard Launius and Mark Zoghby

Features: Family friendly cooperative gameplay; no dice

Take on the role of a Time Agent and work with other players to capture an alien menace who is destroying our past, and consequently, our future!

Saving Time is a cooperative game by Richard Launius and Mark Zoghby. Each player will visit different points in the past to repair damage done to our timeline by the alien menace. In addition to repairing the damage already done by the alien, the players will also be gathering valuable information that will lead to stopping the menace once and for all.

Saving Time features artwork and graphic design by Edu Torres and Jesse Seidule, and puts a great theme onto a tried and true cooperative mechanic.

Each copy of Saving Time will include the following:

  • 1 Rulebook (draft is linked)
  • 6 Time Agents

Gods of Adventure

Designers: Richard Launius

Features: Semi-cooperative, strong theme, moderate dice and luck elements

Control a god and gather your strongest adventurers to complete challenges and earn the most fortune and favor to become the Supreme Being!

Gods of Adventure is a semi-cooperative card game by Richard Launius (designer of Run, Fight, or Die, Defenders of the Last Stand). Each player is a god, using a team of adventurers to delve into a dungeon to face adventurers, avoid hazards, defeat enemies, and gather treasure! Players will have to work together to overcome the hazards of the dungeon, but will be vying for the title of Supreme Being by collecting gold, treasure, and experience!

Stretch Goals

During the Kickstarter, our backers will be traversing a cavernous mountain, unlocking stretch goals for both Saving Time and Gods of Adventure. As the backers delve deeper, more goals will be revealed.

Saving Time and Gods of Adventure will be funded at $15,000. Subsequent stretch goals will unlock every $5,000 (up to $100,000). Check out some sample stretch goals below!

In the spirit of adventure, we'll be presenting our stretch goals as rooms in a dungeon. Deep inside the fabled 8th Summit, a treasure awaits for our brave adventurers. Will you be able to plunder the riches contained within?


To get everyone started with their exploration, if the game funds at $15,000, each copy of Saving Time and Gods of Adventure will come with additional content! The Confucius Tile will be added to Saving Time, and the Portcullis hazard will be added to Gods of Adventure!

IMPORTANT: Please realize that final game components, box, and artwork may differ somewhat from the components represented here, as we put final touches on graphic design to send to printer. Product files are mostly finished, but may change in final preparation. Also we would like you to note that if the stretch goal or feature is not offered on this page, it is not officially part of this campaign. This excludes external information you have read in forums on comment sections or the updates. If we don't offer it here, it is not being offered.

Risks and challenges

While every project has risks, we've done our best to minimize any complications. We have established solid ties to manufactures and retailers within the industry. 8th Summit has published over ten games, expansions and supplements and we have learned with each publication.

Shipping is always a risk, especially when shipping international orders. Recently, the United States Postal Service raised its prices for sending international packages. We will do our best to accurately predict shipping costs, but be aware that shipping prices can change suddenly, and we may need to ask for more to be able to send the package out to you. If that doesn't work for you, we will gladly process a refund.
