Battleborn Legacy - An Epic Struggle for Dominance!

$26,042

 Battleborn Legacy is a 2-4 player fantasy war game that takes 2-3 hours to play.  Players will seek rare magic, complete quests and battle to control strategic provinces as they attempt to earn enough victory points to restore peace before the final cataclysm destroys the corrupted world!  It won't be easy as your foes are mighty and natural disasters, undead uprisings and the deadly dragon may strike at the most inopportune time.

 All reward tiers after the Hero tier will receive everything at the Hero pledge level in addition to naming an official unit token in the game.

Shown are the prototype components. The final manufactured components will be even better.

 After each player completes their combat/diplomacy and movement actions they will deploy their new units to strongholds, collect their appropriate cards, resources and gold and then adjust their victory tracks accordingly.

"Battleborn Legacy is a fantastic game of action and adventure.  The ways that the different heroes can join up with different races gives the game great replayability.  Dice rolling, area control, special cards with bonus powers, and more than a few surprises means that Battleborn Legacy is a game that you will want to play!" - Cody Carlson, TDG Reviews

"Its a race against time, its a battle of wits and power against your friends.  You find yourself immersed in the fantasy world!  The constant table talk and negotiation really adds to the excitement.  I wish this game was out years ago!  If your a fan of this genre your going to love this game." - Lance Myxter, The Undead Viking

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges

Risks come in mostly logistical forms. Production delays are the primary risk. We will see this through to the end, but when manufacturing a new product, especially one with so many unique parts there will always be challenges but we are ready to tackle them head on!

We have already received a final quote from WinGo Industry Ltd to bring Battleborn Legacy to life. 98% of the artwork and prep work is complete and we are currently working on the amazing stretch goals that will make the game even better. Our goal is to move quickly from the Kickstarter campaign right to manufacturing!

We already have our logistics partners in place. We have chosen freight and fulfillment companies that are very familiar with tabletop game distribution and have proven track records! We promise to stay focused and determined until all backers receive their copy of Battleborn Legacy...our legacy to you.
