About

Furious Ascent is a cooperative game for 2 to 4 players. The object of the game is for all players to progress as a team through four ascents to reach the mountain summit. If all players are healthy enough to reach the summit, the game is won. If any player becomes too injured to continue on during the game, it will result in an immediate loss.

Basic Game Play

Teammates play colored rope cards in the proper order to conquer four ascents, with each ascent becoming more difficult than the last. Each of the four camp cards has different requirements on how many rope cards and how many colors can be used to progress to the next camp.  

If any player during their turn is unable to play the next card in the sequence, they must draw from the Event Deck. Events can penalize the individual player with various ailments, or the team as a whole with loss of progress in the ascent. If any player obtains too many ailments during the game, the entire team fails, and the game is lost. If all players reach the summit, the game is won!

 

Only four lucky backers will be allowed to immortalize themselves in the game! Winning backers will be able to choose the following details on their card:  

  • The nickname of the camp (e.g. Weatherby's Fall)  
  • Their name (e.g. Sir Reginald Wetherby) 
  • Custom Caricature (supplied by us via photo or description from backer) 

We will work with you on the final details for your card to ensure both parties are satisfied with the content before publishing.

All reward levels include FREE SHIPPING.  This is our first Kickstarter and we will be limiting our initial reward locations to the United States only.  We want to make sure we can properly fulfill the shipping requirements in a timely and cost effective manner.  If you are outside the US area and wish to be notified when our product has finalized production, please drop us a line at games@stolistic.com.  We plan to find partners that will assist us in worldwide distribution. 

If you are a retailer or distributor interested in carrying Furious Ascent or any other Stolistic Games products, please contact us at games@stolistic.com.  We would be happy to assist with details.

Stolistic Games is focused on creating family oriented table games. This is the second game produced by Stolistic Games. The first game “Prospectica” is a competitive card game about mining asteroid is space. More information about the game can be found on its website www.prospectica.com.

Risks and challenges

Since the game will be manufactured in China, there are possible unknowns about production and shipping delays. This is not the first game produced by Stolistic Games and we intend to use the same production facility as our last product. This has given us fairly accurate estimates on the processes involved and should aid us in finalizing this campaign.

All product images and descriptions are subject to change before final production begins.
