About

You’re an explorer in a strange new world, trying to stake the best claims and make a name for yourself - but so is everyone else, making Ruby Roundup! a frantic race to grab as much treasure as you can while manipulating, denying, and stealing treasure from everyone else!

Filled with zany characters, high quality playing pieces, and packed with hidden secrets and Easter eggs, Ruby Roundup is a light bluffing game that’s highly interactive and easy to learn! 



At Always Gold Games our mission is to make games with as many quality pieces and extra features as possible! In addition to making high quality games, we have also started a new game blog called Game Talk in which we'll post and discuss everything game related, from different game genres, to creating and sourcing pieces for your own projects!

When you support us on Patreon, everyone wins! In fact just a single patron is all we require to unlock this Stretch Goal for everyone! UPDATE: Unlocked By Susie Dancer - our very first patron! May all your Dreams be Diamond! 


We wanted to pack all Stretch Goals with a ton of extra value. The first Stretch Goal features the card Recruitment Office which gives one lucky player a second character to use and abuse - How cool is that! In addition we also added a new panorama set of claims.  

Did you know that Ruby Roundup has an expansion planned? These are it's four player cards, all available right now as a single stretch tier!

Use"Wild Treasure" to add any 3 colored gems to the claim, while the "Only One" player card limits a player to scoring only one treasure type. Lastly you can use "Shift/Push Left" and "Shift/Push Right" to kick people off of claims and maximize shenanigans! 

But wait! There's more! In addition to adding these four cards we're going to give you two sets of them - increasing this stretch goal tire to +8 cards!

Fortune is a lucky kitty that grants piles of riches to those pure of heart. The "Purring Prosperity" ability grants you extra gems if you manage to score certain cards, while the "Cat-Eye Clarity" ability lets you reuse those cards to give you even more gems!  

Lastly the once per game "Enlightened Contemplation" ability allows you to setup, gamble, or even sabotage multiple claims - doubling your card control for a single turn! 

Misery is also lucky - just not the good kind, and just like Fortune, Misery loves to share! The "Share Misery" ability lets you gift specific bad cards you score to your foes, while the "Share" Wealth ability literally lets you steal other player's gems!

The once per game ability "Chaos Cross Fire" lets you turn your extra gems and cards into direct attacks. This ability can be used to disrupt select players if your short on cards or gems, or just dump on everyone if you're already ahead! 

At $35 (USD), you are buying Ruby Roundup for $10 UNDER its suggested retail price.

We did this so paying for shipping wouldn't feel so bad. In order to give everyone the best rates possible, shipping will be collected after the campaign through a survey by Backer Kit and all orders will be sent out through a fulfillment center. For example rates, most U.S. orders are estimated to cost between $10-15 U.S.D. depending on location, 15-20 U.S.D. for most of Europe.  

Not only am I 100% invested in this project, you can Contact me here in case you have any further questions or comments. (tarnace@yahoo.com - if the contact link is incompatible with your mail service). 

My goal is to reply to every email thrown at me so please keep that in mind while you're waiting for me to respond. In the first week of the campaign I expect to be flooded with emails.

Risks and challenges

Manufacturing and shipping delays can happen. While we have presourced all of the art and parts as well as set a pretty decent margin for allowances, if any issues or delays happen note that we will update you immediately.
