The Tiles

The Epic Cards gaming system consists of a large number of colorful, inch-based map tiles, and also features many loot stickers with magic items, weapons and equipment.

Epic Cards tiles are beautifully hand-painted and designed to be modular, so that they fit together, in any direction.

The tiles are 4 x 4 and 8 x 8 inch (10 x 10 and 20 x 20 cm). The smaller 4 x 4 inch tiles are more modular while the larger tiles have more space for individual designs. 

Epic Cards tiles are printed on thick, high quality 300 gr. paper and glossy coated on both sides. Thick, high quality 300 gr. paper is the material used for thick, luxury business cards.

Endless possibilities 

The system enables players to design entire Dungeons and Environments before the game begins. Players can create new rooms as they explore and the game unfolds. Players simply add tiles to their map, instead of having to stop, play, and draw new rooms while playing.

The connectors  

To connect the tiles we have invented small, transparent paper clips. These paper clips attach the map tiles side-by-side.

Fog of War and Maze Creator 

The sysrem feature a, “Fog of War” gameplay mode. Instead of laying out all of the dungeon tiles at once, you reveal a tile only after a player explores it.

Epic Cards also features an automatic system for semi-procedural map layouts. This system helps you to create mazes in the blink of an eye!

Epic Cards are beautiful, hand illustrated game tiles. Wet and dry marker can be easily wiped away from the tiles.

About the Team 

The Epic Cards team is a group of graphic designers and illustrators based in the South of Germany near the French border. We love games and we love design. We got inspired by different Kickstarter projects (like Dwarven Forge, Dungeon Explore, Saga World Builder and Gaming Paper) to design this unique and colorful tile system. 

Fulfilment 

The core artwork is 95% complete, the additional and Stretch Goals artwork will be completed soon after the campaign and we expect to start shipping within two months after receiving the funds from Kickstarter. This is the time required for printing and producing all boxes. Of course, we will do what we can to speed this process along. 

Shipping 

We will be charging shipping once the Kickstarter is over, based on the actual costs. We will collect the information via our pledge manager after the campaign ends. 

The following is a list of rough estimates for shipping of up to 2 kg weight for example for the Bronze or the Silver Pledge.  

  • USA: 16 € to most states 
  • EUROPE: 5 € to Germany. 9 € to most other countries. 
  • CANADA: 16 € to most cities. 
  • LATIN AMERICA: 16 € to most countries. 
  • ASIA: 16 € to China and Hong Kong. 16 € to most other countries. 
  • OCEANIA: 16 € to Australia. 16 € to New Zealand. 

The cost estimate for example for the Gold or the Platinum Pledge would be about 50% more.

The following is a list of rough estimates for shipping of 5 kg weight for the Epic Pledge. 

  • USA: 30 to 38 € to most states
  • EUROPE: 7 € to Germany. 18 € to most other countries.
  • CANADA: 30 to 38 € to most cities.
  • LATIN AMERICA: 50 € to most countries.
  • ASIA: 45 € to China and Hong Kong. 50 € to most other countries.
  • OCEANIA: 35 € to Australia. 45 € to New Zealand. 

Keep in mind all these are just estimates, and costs may change based on weight increases from unlocked stretch goals and any optional buys you choose.

We regret we are unable to ship to PO Boxes.

Risks and challenges

Putting together a Kickstarter campaign is a big responsibility! We have spent many months in research and preparation. Even though, there is a risk that deadlines might be missed and that we could experience problems in the production.

To avoid these risks, we have worked hard to get the artwork near completion. We’ve tested multiple prototypes to simulate how printing and shipping will work. Additionally, we have are working with one of the biggest and most experienced printing company in Europe that we are more than confident will deliver a great product - in time, in budget and in quality.

Refund Policy
All pledges can be refunded up to 14 days after the end of the Kickstarter campaign, fees included. After which, we have a policy of no questions asked for a refund, but will be unable to refund you the charges incurred by Kickstarter and Stripe (as we will not be refunded by them after this 14 day period), Pledge Manager and also the other charges for your payment (PayPal, VISA, credit card...). This represents approximately 15% of the full payment.

Once we have started to process and packed your order refunds will no longer be available. If any part of an order cannot be delivered, then we will reimburse you the cost of this component, fees included. Refunds within the 14 days are reversed via Stripe to your credit card. Any refunds requested after the 14 days close of the campaign may be processed via PayPal or reversed via Stripe or your credit card. This project is being funded in Euro and any refunds processed will be in the Euro for the exact amount received in Euro, excluding any applicable fees depending on the time of the refund being processed.
