To get the miniature of Urbik riding a Drimek Dragon we need to get 150 shares of the following Facebook post:

https://www.facebook.com/avghostboardgame/photos/a.542135819228475/2386679638107408/?type=3&theater

Just copy/paste the link in your browser and share it with the world! (We will only count one share per user).

 You may get this set of scenery by adding € 34 to your pledge. During the campaign you will have a 10€ discount, said discount will only be active during the Kickstarter campaign period. During the pledge manager after the campaign, the pack will be sold at its original price of 44€.

 The game will be available in English, Spanish, German and French. You can pick your language after the campaign in the pledge manager.

The Legend of Drimek is a cooperative board game for 1 to 4 players, where you will take control of one of the heroes from the kingdom of Drimek, one of the 4 allies that live to search for treasures and relics in the depths of the dungeons.

But one day, they discover a gate that had been shut close for centuries. When they access the dungeon and collect all the treasures, they accidentally wake up an evil necromancer from its slumber, who entraps them in the testing grounds. That’s why our heroes must find a way to escape the testing grounds, by cooperating to fight and solve the different tests that each level will throw at them, to return to their home. It seems like the testing grounds’ legend is true. The Legend of Drimek is real.

You will handle your character by using a gamepad controller, where you will place different wooden tokens that represent the buttons you press for your miniature to perform actions on the vertical board, along with the 10 different levels. 

Which hero will you choose?

 MINIATURE SIZE COMPARISION:

Drimek miniatures comparing with "Imperial Assault" miniatures (FFG).
Drimek miniatures comparing with "Arcadia Quest" miniatures (CMON).
Drimek miniatures comparing with "Stuffed Fables" miniatures (Plaid Hat Games).

Place the scenery elements on the boards, according to the level you are playing (e.g.: level 1) and then choose a character.

Place all the tokens from the characters and enemies in play on the initiative track at the central section of the board. When you reveal the tokens, you will also determine the turn order for both heroes and enemies.

Depending on the number of heroes and enemies on each initiative section, you will reveal a hero or enemy aid card that will remain in play until all 4 characters in that section have played their turns.

During your turn, you will have different buttons of your gamepad to press, depending on the hero you’ve chosen; i.e.: Urbik the dwarf has more "use" actions, while Lynnie the elf is more agile.

The directional pad will allow you to move your character. Roll 4 dice at the start of each round, and place them on the directional pad according to their color. Then, depending on the direction you want to move to, you may move as many spaces as the result in that direction's die. That will be your movement for the round. You can add 1 extra movement point if you place 1 die on the central section of the directional pad and move in only one direction.

As you progress, you may press more buttons of your gamepad with the wooden disks, which will allow you to advance, jump, shoot and so much more…

When the enemy turn starts, reveal the first card of the appropriate AI deck and perform the actions shown for that specific enemy. Each enemy type has a different behavior pattern, so be very careful!!

Also keep in mind that new scenery elements will spawn at different locations every few turns, on occasions reshaping the scenario completely!

Some scenery elements can be destroyed and, when you break them, you will receive different materials. These materials, such as wood, stone, metal, and plants, allow you to upgrade your weapons, create new ones or recover part of your lost energy. But beware, there is no way to tell if there is a goblin hiding inside a crate!!

In Drimek’s testing grounds you will find magical totems that will block your path, but with which you can interact to open doors for your allies, to push them to reach secluded areas or place them on switches that will open new paths.

In The Legend of Drimek, your characters will move on two opposing vertical boards. All the spaces of the board are numbered and mirrored on the opposing board, so you may interact with the other board. Open a gate communicating with the other board, shoot an arrow or cast lightning to strike an enemy on the other side. On occasions, you will also have to move from one board to the other to solve different situations.

 SCENARIO SET UP:

Our friends from Ludofact in Germany have spent the last few months developing the boards and scenarios, preparing them for assembly. After several attempts, we came up with the solution you can see in the images. It is easy to assemble and it will have reinforced inner folds, in addition to being laminated on the printed side to prevent damage. This allows you to dismount and store the boards without problems, just like you would place and handle any standard folded board on the table, as often as you want. When mounted, it is really sturdy and resistant, so you can place on them all the components of the game without issues. Additionally, after playing, you can fold it again to store it neatly inside the game box.

 Mystical Games was born in 2014 and The Legend of Drimek is already our fourth game! After Alchemical Crystal Quest – which was delivered to our backers in 2018, Bat Cup – delivered to our backers last summer, and AVGhost – currently in production, now comes The Legend of Drimek, where we fondly look back to remember those afternoons of our youth, playing video games with our Mega Drives and Super Nintendos for countless hours of great, unforgettable fun.

After all these years creating, manufacturing and shipping board games for our backers, we have learned many valuable lessons that we never fail to apply, since we tray learning every day from each step we take as publishers.

This project is promoted by Jellop, the ad tech power behind the best Kickstarters with 950+ successful Kickstarter projects with over $400M raised between them.

Risks and challenges

All campaigns and subsequent production has its risks. For this reason, we will have professionals in the industry produce The Legend of Drimek, located in the European Union.

There may be delays in the production of the game, shipments, and other issues beyond our control. We will keep you up to date on the production process, with frequent updates on Kickstarter, and our social media networks. We firmly believe that communication with you is extremely important, and we want to involve you in the project as much as possible.

The estimated delivery date is November 2020, but keep in mind this is only an estimate. Some rewards will arrive before than others depending on the country and the kind of article.
