Build a small empire in a land of legends!  

Back now and gain access to the print-n-play files!

Eight-Minute Empire: Legends is a standalone sequel to Eight-Minute Empire and does not require the original game to play. Just like the original board game, players take turns selecting a card from six displayed. The card has an action that the player takes immediately, and actions help players take over the map. But what is new and different in this version?

  • Instead of goods, cards now have special abilities! Special abilities give players unique advantages and ways to break the rules throughout the game.
  • Each card has a unique, beautiful illustration of a fantasy creature or location.
  • The game includes a modular board for increased variety.
  • New variants.

Is the game still playable in eight minutes? Yes, but only if you hurry! Eight-Minute Empire: Legends is the sequel to the super-quick area control game with tough decisions. It's easy to learn and perfect for when you only have a few minutes.

  • easy to teach.

Praise for Eight-Minute Empire:

"...that’s darn fast, and combined with its surprising depth and “just one more quick game!” appeal, this is one of the best filler games I’ve seen come out this year. So good, in fact, that a few members of my gaming group were hoping this would be the evening’s main course rather than just the appetizer."   -Daniel Thurot, spacebiff.com

"In the end, I was very impressed with “Eight-Minute Empire”. It’s quick and easy to play, but will force you to make some pretty tough decisions.... This game is easily recommendable for both family game night and as a filler in between longer game sessions."  -Vincent Paone of Dad's Gaming Addiction

Other Information

Q: Where are the print-n-play files?  A: Check out Update #1 for the download links.

Q: What is the Legends Board expansion?  A: The Legends Board expansion adds another two, double-sided board pieces to the game so players have a total of six pieces from which to create the map.

Q: Why is the delivery date so far away?  A: We want to make sure that we factor in time for possible production delays.  Most likely, you will get your game before the delivery date.  But for this reason we have made the print-n-play files available for backers.  Back and enjoy the game right away!

International Shipping: As per US Customs law, we cannot label the game as a gift for shipping.

Risks and challenges

This is my fourth Kickstarter project, and with each project, I could not have printed and produced them without the support of Kickstarter backers. I've been working on Eight-Minute Empire: Legends for a long time. Much of the art is finished, and the prototype is fun, but it won't see the light of day without the funds needed to see that the game is printed.

There are many other challenges to making sure this project is successful. Because of occasional unforeseen events, it is common for board game production to be delayed. I've done all I can to ensure that this game will be delivered on time if funded. Of course, delays can happen, but my last two projects were delivered around one month early.

Another challenge is making sure that all the files and rules are correct when sent to the printer. I've done the graphic design and artwork for many other games, including games for other companies such as Rio Grande Games. My experience helps me ensure a smooth pre-production process.

With your help, we can have the funds to print the game, overcome the various obstacles that are in the way, and make sure you are delivered a quality product.
