About this project

Welcome to the high seas, where gold is on everyone's mind! Send Pirates to steal Gold Coins from other players or call in the Officers to protect yer own. Watch out as the Kraken lurks below, ready to wipe out everything ye have! Do ye have the Captain's favor to Take the Gold!?

Take the Gold is a 2-6+ player fast-paced draw-and-play light weight card game that plays in about 5-10 minutes.

Take the Gold is designed to be played anywhere as it plays quick, with an average of 5-10 minutes per game, and takes up very little table space. The game comes packaged in a heavy duty plastic box that won't wear down and fall apart in your bag, backpack, or pocket.

You can view the full rulebook here:  Take the Gold Rulebook

Printable Quick Reference cards are available in multiple languages to allow non-English speakers to play along.The languages we currently have available to download are:

Dutch | French (Canada) | French (France) | German | Italian | Norwegian | Russian | Spanish | Spanish (Spain)

Thanks to Andres, Andrey, Gauthier, Giampaolo, Jesus, Kai, Lewis, Rita, Rosa, Santiago, Sergio, Thomas, Truls, and anyone else I've missed for translating our Quick Reference Sheet to other languages!

The funds from this campaign will allow us to pay for a full print run to get our fantastic artwork onto high quality card stock along with the highest quality polypropylene plastic deck box we can get.

We've played cards for years and we know the importance of high quality cards and boxes, so rather than starting at a lower goal and with low quality components, then hoping to upgrade, our goal factors in the best quality our components can be.  That means we won't list artificial stretch goals for upgraded card quality or upgraded box quality, we want the game to be the best it can be.

We really can't add anything to the game, and the quality is already the best it can be; but we want to add something as a thank you to all of our backers for believing in our game.  If the project exceeds the funding goal, the following items will be unlocked for all game backers:

All unlocked stretch goals will be included with every copy of the game!

Risks and challenges

This is our second time on Kickstarter, after having successfully funded BattleGoats last year. We've also done large scale printing with CardLords Tokens for the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game, so we know some of the hurdles that can come our way. Our funding goal is set low enough to allow us to fund a minimum print run while ensuring maximum quality.

Printing and shipping time are roughly 4-6 weeks each, and we will be ready to submit to the printer shortly after the campaign ends. We are also giving ourselves a little buffer time to ensure we can get Take the Gold out to the players without any disappointments from delays. BattleGoats shipped to players almost a month early and we'd like to replicate that success once again.

We never discount that the unexpected can happen. We will do everything we can to minimize the possible risks, and should any issues or delays arise, we will notify backers immediately.

Thank you,
The CardLords Team
