About

King Hùng Era is a family friendly fast-paced strategy game for 2-4 people where you try to get as many units face-up as possible out of 8 units that each player has.  Winning the last unit can earn you a big bonus while all losing tiles will go into the box!  Each game lasts about 10-15 minutes

Risk-free guarantee.

The link contains a simple version to print & play in case you'd like to test it out with your friends, your significant other, your family, or anyone that likes a fast abstract strategy game (with some unique twists).  2 players should make a good game, and also, the more players are in the game (3 or 4 players), the harder it will become to control the game play and to win the rounds.

How to win:  Whoever has the most coins after 3 games is the winner and becomes one of the most respected Nobles in King Hùng Era.

STORY BEHIND KING HÙNG ERA 

When we were children, our late grandma taught us this folk game that was passed down in the family for generations.  Based on these happy memories, I made this game with newly created pieces and combinations, then themed it with the familiar chess ranking and King Hùng Era - an Eastern civilization that existed around 2800 B.C.  

After much play testing, we have solidified the rule, finalized the illustrations, and sourced all game pieces.  Now we hope to place a big order with the manufacturer to bring the cost per game down.  With your help, we can bring this project to life together.

Grandma Approved

Risks and challenges

We've had our manufacturer produce a number of final products for us already. Once we have the successful backing from Kickstarter and know what stretch goals are reached, we will be able to finalize the stretch goal items and place a big production order from our manufacturer. That will largely reduce the cost per unit of the game and make it more reasonably priced as we would like for the game to be played by many many people around the world!

International shipping can potentially cause some delays and complications. I have studied from other Kickstarter campaign lesson learns and partnered with 2 other reputable shipping companies.
