BLAZON GETS BETTER!
July 24, 2012: After our initial playtesting run, we discovered that some of the assumptions we made about how the game would play didn't work the way we expected. Because of that, I have trimmed the core set of cards by almost 30. I don't want you to get less bang for your buck, so I am going to automatically include the first expansion pack, Conflict-Checking (27 cards), as a part of the Starter Deck! Check out Update #5 for more details on Conflict-Checking and how it changes up the game!Blazon! The Card Game is a heraldry game for 2-6 players based around the idea of collecting the components found in a coat of arms (the objects or "charges," the colors or "tinctures," and so forth). This game is great for kids, adults, anyone with an interest in heraldry, anyone with an interest in medieval history, or anybody who just likes to play a fun card game! Your support will fund the production and expansion of the card game. The world of heraldry has literally thousands of animals, plants, mythical beasts, tools, objects, and more that can be added to this game to expand the challenge. Further, the card game acts as a great learning tool for anyone who wishes to know more about heraldry. Each card includes a description of the component and a little bit about how it is used in heraldry. It is my goal to run these funds as close to the actual production cost of the cards through the help of The Game Crafter, along with being able to compensate the artists and designers who work on the project (I believe in paying artisans for their art).
One Starter Set is sufficient for two (works best) to three (works fine) players. Four or more might have a bit more of a challenge on their hands, but you can combine multiple Starter Sets to alleviate this problem.
At this time, I plan on shipping international packages using the USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate International box and have included several "INTERNATIONAL ONLY" rewards to account for the difference in shipping costs. Any rewards at or above $100.00 will come with the International shipping at no additional charge.
