Let's make a great game together.  Together we will make the game better for everyone.  This is your chance to leave your mark on the game through your feedback.  We're not just saying that.  We have multiple polls designed for you to impact the game and rewards shipped to all backers.

The components. The components are designed to be stunning.  Custom wooden pegs are included in the Kickstarter version. A fabric board sets the stage for your pond. The twelve game pieces are inspired by lotus seed pods, and the subtle molding comes second to your perfect hand feel.  Everything is designed to be long lasting because Thrive is a game that is designed to stand the test of time.

The expansion. We've poured all of our creative energy into this project over the last year.  The game is simple, elegant, and solid and we dare not disturb that.  However we do find time to tinker and managed to build an expansion that gives you game breaking abilities without disturbing the core.  Using your powers will grant your opponents access to those very powers keep the zen-like balance true in the pond.  With the Pond Life expansion, your pond will come alive once again with replay-ability.  It is included in all tiers where you receive the game.

We heard your amazing feedback at GAMA 2019 and as promised we're opening a retailer pledge tier.  Pledge for the retailer tier, and choose your final order quantity at wholesale pricing before we ship the project when we'll send the final invoice.  All games included in retailer tier receive the same rewards as all other KS games.

Risks and challenges

"Anything that gets your blood racing is probably worth doing." This qualifies, but making new things is also tough! This is my fourth Kickstarter campaign, and we've now shipped to over 2,000 backers over the course of our last three campaigns. Thrive presents some additional manufacturing challenges due to the unique components. We're equipped to deliver unique components. Just look at our last project, Swordcrafters.

I'm approaching product development and testing with rigor and will put product quality before timing if needed. My board game publisher and Kickstarter experiences, as well as my day job as a packaging engineer, will be my foundation to deliver a great product and campaign. My money-back guarantee displays my confidence in the game and any challenges that we face.

I will communicate along the way. You'll know if anything unexpected happens and I will do my best to make it right. I am building a track record of delivering games on time meeting project deadlines and avoiding unexpected shipping delays. The gameplay is solid with little to no tweaks expected. The expansion is being rigorously developed which gives you an opportunity to help influence it. The artwork is paid for and final files are on track for completion before the end of the project.

Thanks so much for checking out our project. I would be humbled if you back me. Let's plant this lotus pond and Thrive together!
