All translations unlocked - next up Replacement Cards

Borders of Kanta was a late bloomer in terms of stretch goals. Over the last few days we have hit almost all of our stretch goals! Wow!

Our next stretch goal is only $1,000 CAD away - and it's a great one! It will give you replacement cards for each type of card in the game. That's right: you'll get a replacement card for each type of action card, each role card, and the reference card.

We're calling them replacement cards, but there are a lot of interesting things you can choose to do with them under your own house rules.

For instance, you can insert the extra set of role cards into the action card deck. When a role card appears at the top of the deck, the player who is playing that clan may draw a free card, or take a card from every other player, or something else that you decide.

As a game designer, I've learned that the rule book that comes with a board game is simply a starting point for playing the game. It's a lot of fun bending, breaking and creating new rules that entertain and challenge you and your friends. I look forward to hearing how you make Borders of Kanta your own.

      Variants, etc. like the one suggested can be made into official PDFs and available on your website, BGG, etc.

      That is a great idea. New house rules could be thrown around all the time. I'm going to double check that I'm following your Facebook page!

      Tyler - interesting idea, thanks for your comment!

      Our rule book is a very carefully organized document that fills up all eight available pages. If we were to add any more content, we'd have to go to a 12-page rule book (this has to do with how things are printed commercially). This would add cost and we simply don't require 4 more pages.

      Instead, we'll be sprucing up our Facebook page so that owners of Borders of Kanta can share and exchange their ideas for alternate rules. We will post some options on that page to get things started. Let's see what our community comes up with!

      I like the idea of having extra role cards in the draw deck. Would you be able to put together some of the alternative rules in the rule book?
