Remember the good old days when Tetris ruled the world of gaming? Didn’t you just love that moment when the line was cleared? Then you'd better not miss Project L!
Project L was funded in 5 hours and more than 2396 wonderful backers already unlocked all 40 Stretch Goals (including 6 community Stretch Goals)! Thanks to this, Project L can be played by up to 6 players! Don't miss the last opportunity to get the Kickstarter exclusive Ghost Piece expansion (Master pledge) and the Ambassador Pack add-on (also Kickstarter exclusive).
Project L is a fast-paced strategy game for 1-6 players. This perfect gateway game will keep your brain running on full steam as you’ll strive to beat your opponents by earning the most points for completing puzzles. Enjoy the perfect harmony of vibrant pieces and lovely tiles in an unforgettable gaming experience!
The Kickstarter Exclusive Ambassador Pack (€5) is free for all existing Boardcubator Ambassadors and will be automatically added to their pledge for no additional charge. You're an Ambassador, if:
- You're a backer of one of our previous Kickstarter campaigns
- Or you joined the Boardcubator Newsletter before Project L went live on 25th Sep 2018.
In Project L, you complete puzzles to earn as many points as you can to win the game.
To complete puzzles effectively, you need to build a sufficient pool of pieces. But choose the pieces you build carefully so it fits your strategy and the puzzles you want to solve!
You complete a puzzle when you fill its recessed area. Then take all your pieces back, place the puzzle aside and reap the rewards: points and a new piece to your supply.
You start the game with just a single level 1 piece. During the game you build your pool of pieces so you can solve increasingly difficult puzzles. So what are your options?
On your turn, you can do 3 of the following actions (you may do the same action repeatedly).
- Take a new level 1 piece
- Upgrade a piece
- Take a puzzle tile (you can have up to 4 unfinished puzzles)
- Place a piece on your puzzle
Master action (only once every round) — put a piece on all your puzzles!
Start the engine — At the beginning, you focus on building more basic pieces so you can complete the white (easier) puzzles. These will give you some points but also additional pieces as rewards. Since you also keep the pieces you used to finish puzzles, your pool of pieces starts to grow.
Master the Strategy — Once you've built a sufficient pool of pieces to challenge the black (difficult) puzzles and even more of them at the same time, unleash the Master action! It allows you to put a piece on all of your puzzles in a single action.
Win the game — Once the black puzzles are gone, the game ends as you rush to complete your remaining puzzles in the final round. Whoever has the most points from completed puzzles wins.
Sounds cool? Try it right now with the Print-and-Play version (work in progress)!
The magenta stretch goals are Kickstarter exclusive and won't enter retail. The blue stretch goals may appear later in retail either as a separate add-on or as a part of the base game. However, at the moment, it is not certain that Project L will ever enter retail distribution at all.

Risks and challenges
This is our 3rd board game Kickstarter project. We've learned a lot from our previous projects (Space Race: The Card Game and Space Race – Interkosmos), and we believe we are able to manage the development, production, and shipping of Project L hassle free and that we are ready to do our best. As with every Kickstarter project, there may be unforseen issues we could not plan for in advance. However, we believe that with the experience we have from the two previous campaigns, we will sucessfully overcome any obstacles that come up quickly and effeciently.
90-DAY MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE — You have 90 days after we send you your reward to check out the game and if you're not 100% satisfied with it for any reasons, you can send us the game back, and we will fully refund your pledge (shipping costs not included).
Missing or lost shipments and/or missing or damaged parts have to be reported in 90 days after we send you a shipping notice through an e-mail. In that case, it's our responsibility to take care of delivering your reward or replacement parts successfully to you. After that date, however, we may treat unreported shipments as successfully finished and any potential refunds/replacements may be at our discretion only.
