Golden Amber fills the deep mines, it's fiery, cold embers glowing in the ancient rocks. Scholars say that the Arzians valued it above gold or silver, and wore it as a sign of wealth. Perhaps the rare substance holds forgotten secrets about the long-dead empire and their lust for power?

This is an expansion for the game Near and Far and requires Near and Far to play. 

All reward tiers that include Near and Far: Amber Mines also include the Handy Headwear card promo pack (5 artifact cards) as a free bonus!

Near and Far: Amber Mines is the first expansion to Near and Far. It includes modules that you can add or remove according to your preference. The modules are explained below:

Changing Backer Levels: For this project we are unable to change or accept alterations to the backer level rewards. Backers may, however, double their rewards by doubling their pledge amount (for example, $40 for two copies of Near and Far: Amber Mines, and then add shipping only once). Backers may not triple or quadruple their rewards, etc.  

It is possible that Near and Far: Amber Mines will be printed later by international publishers in various languages. Please take this into consideration when deciding if you would like to pledge. 

Can I add Above and Below to my pledge? We are unable to offer Above and Below in this Kickstarter project. Please support your favorite game store and purchase a copy there!

 

 

Rewards shipping to addresses within the US, EU, and Canada will be shipped from within the US, EU, and Canada.  

International Shipping: As per Customs law, we cannot label the game as a gift for shipping. International shipments will be subject to customs charges depending on the country to which you are shipping.

Risks and challenges

This is my fourteenth Kickstarter project, and with each project, I could not have printed and produced them without the support of Kickstarter backers. We've worked for months testing and polishing Near and Far: Amber Mines. Much of the art is finished and the game is ready, 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 most of my projects have been delivered 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 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.
