About

In the Realm of Kanta, power was balanced between clans. Each controlled a handful of states. That changed with the plague. Fearing the spread of infection, states shut their borders. Clan leaders retreated to Kanta City, having lost the source of their wealth.  

Play the leader of your clan, competing against up to five other clans to rebuild your people's wealth. Send out councils to reclaim states and reopen borders. Will your clan become the most powerful in this new era?

Risks and challenges

This game is fully tested, and 99% designed and illustrated. We quite literally have one small illustration that we are having redone, and we anticipate there will be some small file modifications required in order to accommodate any stretch goals that are reached.

As our first campaign, one of our largest challenges is building enough trust to get the Kickstarter community - you - to back the project.

We've done a few things to make this happen. First, we have extensively tested the game and been highly active in the Western Canadian board game design community. We've sought independent reviews and previews and will be posting these throughout the campaign. We've deliberately avoided unnecessarily flashy stretch goals that might raise doubts as to whether we can deliver on them. We've set our campaign goal realistically. We've set the price for you to get a copy at an aggressively low price to minimize your own personal risk. Finally, we've worked very, very hard on the numbers to be able to deliver free shipping to CA/US to further make it an attractive offer.

Who has played Borders of Kanta exactly? Independent board game designers, experienced and new players, board game cafe owners, and experienced reviewers. That's in addition to all the testers we've recruited. The game has toured the conventions listed on the Kickstarter page. Through it all, the response has been very positive. This game hits that sweet spot of being easy to pick up, challenging to master, and always different depending on who you’re playing against and which role you select at the beginning.

We have shortlisted our preferred manufacturers and fulfillment service providers. They are required to conform to our quality standards in terms of materials, shipping packaging, and delivery times.

Our team consists of an experienced game illustrator, a communications and marketing expert with a fancy MBA, and too many other people in our amazing support network to mention here.
