============
 
The Reliquary Collection is our very first product line. We scoured the world to bring you the very best archaic and authentic games the world has to offer. Each one features a classic play style that is original and doesn't rely on marketing images to be fun. The collection is varied enough to provide a favorite for everyone and each game is conveniently packaged in a truly unique way.

Check out some independent, unpaid reviews for The Reliquary Collection:

All of the games in the Reliquary Collection are family friendly, non-violent, and suitable for all ages (there is a choking hazard for very young children). While there is a suggested age for each game, anyone can enjoy them so long as they understand the rules. Most of the Reliquary Collection games involve new ways to stretch your mind and challenge your strategic prowess, making them great educational tools as well as being extremely fun for everyone!

Each game is presented in a suede leather pouch that unfolds to reveal a beautifully etched game board and natural marble playing pieces. Some of the games feature "lots", which are two-sided dice made of solid wood. The rule booklets are made of an extremely durable composite paper laced onto the satin draw-string. 

Collector's editions are also available in both 6 and 12 game sets. They are packaged in a numbered, dated, branded wooden box that provides a stylish place to keep your favorite games safe while on display. These are Limited Edition boxes, which include space for you to add 100 characters of your choice, making your box completely unique and personalized!

The compact take-anywhere / play-anywhere format ensures that your new games will always be accessible. The natural materials make these games stand out and are sure to be noticed. The patterns and imperfections that nature has left on each piece and board add beauty and authenticity and also guarantee that each copy is unique.

FAQ

  • 1) Click anywhere on the rewards bar ("back this project" or any pledge tier)

    2) Type in the total amount you want to pledge in the white text box on the top of the page (double check your math and the total amount before continuing)

    3) The make sure that you have picked the reward selection you want (the green areas - $5+, $20+, etc... Your pick will say "You Selected" under the check box.

    4) And finally click "Continue to Next Step" on the bottom of the page. This will take you to the Kickstarter login/register page, followed by the Amazon Payments page!

    After our project completes successfully, we will send out a survey to confirm the details of your pledge (which games, custom text, how many of what, etc...). All $5 or more backers will get access to the Print/Play PDFs before we send the survey so you will have time to play the games before finalizing your selections!

  • FROM KICKSTARTER HELP: Visit the project page and click “Manage Your Pledge.” Enter a new amount in the pledge amount box. Note that you are not adding to your existing pledge; the amount you enter will be the total amount collected if the project is successfully funded.

    Last updated:
  • Our rewards include everything listed in the description; they do not include other, less expensive rewards unless clearly stated in the description.

    Last updated:
  • Each game includes only the pieces needed to play that game. If you would like sets of extra game pieces AND individual games, simply order each set of game pieces as if it were an additional game (add $30/ea USA or $40/ea INT'L).

    Sets of game pieces ordered this way will be expanded to include 24 more marble pieces, 6 more lots, 2 more four-sided dice, and come packaged in a velvet drawstring bag. That gives you 32 extras for a total of 88 pieces. You also get a super-useful, handy-dandy, fancy storage bag that you wouldn't get if you just picked the $20 reward! (hmm. Actually, the super-nifty VELVET BAG achievement HAS been unlocked for the Game Pieces Reward Tier! BUT the 88 pieces set comes in an EVEN BIGGER bag! *smiles*)
