About

AntoNerd Games is proud to bring you: Fill the VOID - Kickstarter 2.0! 

After the initial launch collapsed, we spent a long time asking ourselves what went wrong. Turns out, there were a few things, and we learned from them! So we're back, we're stronger than ever, and a little wiser, too... thanks to all the feedback and support we have received from the community! 

Here's a breakdown of the changes we've made:

  • Trimmed down the game - got rid of extraneous parts and complications
  • Eliminated some back-end costs
  • MUCH BETTER manufacturing costs thanks to Shuffled Ink!
  • Shipping now includes tracking & insurance!
  • Simplified backer tiers
  • Zero stretch goals so our focus stays on the game
  • Our faces! 
  • LOWER GOAL!

Okay, but....Who even are you?

We are AntoNerd Games, a super nerdy and awesome wife & husband team who love games, and love good times with great friends and family! We have two amazing daughters (8 and 3) who inspired us to get into board game design and development. We made our first game a few years ago for our oldest daughter, and the board now hangs on our wall. Every time we see it, or play with it, Hubby and I are reminded of the joys of creativity and play. 

It may have been our first, but it's definitely not our last! We're already in development of three more games, but first we need to get this one INTO YOUR HANDS! 

A successful campaign will not only make us super happy, it will help establish us as a legitimate game company, and will mean our next games will be taken seriously. 

On a more personal level, I'm Anna, AKA @DiceRollingMama on Twitter, and I've been in love with games forever. My husband James, who grew up in the mountains of Tennessee, would devise games of fun and strategy as he roamed the untamed wilds. Now we're city folk, living in Dover, NH, and absolutely on board (get it? GET IT?) with bringing you our slightly offbeat brand of fun and frolic. 

Hey, that's us!
Hey, that's us!

Get ready. Get hyped! BECAUSE WE ARE! WOOOOOO! 

What are people saying about all this?

What's this all about?

So glad you asked! 

We made this! (Prototype Pic, final version may contain minor alterations)
We made this! (Prototype Pic, final version may contain minor alterations)

Fill the VOID is a fun party game for 2 to 4 players, or 2 to 4 teams! You (or your team) maneuver a semi-hostile board and draw chaotic cards to collect 20 pieces of the VOID and be the first to return home! 

But beware - the others are just as eager to win, and the cards will reward or punish generosity, pettiness, and materialism. Can you make it home before the others with all your pieces?


Okay...but what's in the box?


  • An instruction booklet
  • A Main Board, on which you'll play
  • 120 VOID pieces on punch cards
  • 8 plastic player pawns in 8 different colors
  • 3 six-sided dice
  • 72 VOID cards
  • 1 card boxes 
Remember, it's a prototype pic - final version may have some minor alterations!

How do we play?

Fill the VOID is easy to pick up! 

1. Pick your player pieces

2. Set them in the Center (Home) space

3. Roll to see who goes first! 

4. On your turn, roll the dice, move your piece and complete the Board Action (if any) then draw a card and complete the Card Action (if any)

It's that easy! 


What if I land on an occupied space?

Landing on an occupied space presents you with three options - you can give the player occupying the space one of your VOID pieces, you can steal one of their VOID pieces, or you can ignore the situation. 


If you choose to steal a piece, you have to challenge the occupying player. 

You said something about teams? How does that work?

Team play rules, as well as individual play, can be found in the instruction book, but here's a breakdown. 

 WHAT? NO STRETCH GOALS???

Yeah, so... here's the thing. 

When we first tried this, we offered a few stretch goals because we felt like that's what people wanted. But it wasn't what we wanted. It felt weird to offer extras liek tee shirts and expansion packs when we were struggling to just get the campaign to its basic funding goal. 

So this time, no stretch goals. 

Anything over the initial  goal will go towards just upgrading the game itself. 


Okay, okay, so then let's talk money. Where is it all going?

Fair question. 

To keep things super simple for everyone, we've taken a pass on add-ons and stretch goals. Our primary objective is to get this awesome game into your home. With that in mind, our goal covers manufacturing and fees and miscellaneous. 

Manufacturing costs include the manufacturing and production, printing, and shipping to our storage facility. The fees and miscellaneous covers Kickstarter fees, our storage facility costs, and a small cushion for unexpected surprises. 


It's a lot of money, but in order to bring you this game at a reasonable price, we have to order a lot. In this way, we pass the savings on to you! 


But I don't live in the US and I want this game SOOOOOOOO BAD!!!

And we want you to have this game, absolutely. Because International Shipping is so expensive, and the prices vary wildly, CONTACT US with your location/country and we will look into the shipping costs. Once we let you know, just add the difference to your pledge, and we'll make sure you get this game. However, we absolutely cannot guarantee that it will arrive before Christmas/Hannukah (or your preferred December holiday) 

Risks and challenges

If our printer can't, for any reason, live up to our expectations, we have backup printers lined up.
If the USPS can't handle our shipping volume, we have providers on stand-by who can.
If there are ANY delays or complications we haven't considered, YOU will be the first to know.
We aim for 100% transparency. You can count on that.
