Kingdom of Aer : Kingmaker is a 5 player, elimination assassination game set in a Florentine styled fantasy world where Monarchy, Mayhem and Murder decides a new King.

Otaroh Kato 17th King of House Aer has died.
The 5 houses must send their Royalty to the Palace to see who is most worthy to become the next King or Queen. Along the way treachery and murder ensues as you (the 'Kingmakers') see that only your royalty are left standing at the Palace steps. 

Kingmaker is a quick and easy social backstabbing game about alliances and betrayal as you battle against your friends and enemies for the crown.                                                     

                                                                


Kingmaker plays as a simultaneous action card game averaging 15 minutes for 2 to 5 players. Players begin the game with 3 royalty in their court and the same starting hand of 4 attack cards (1 for each opposing house) and 7 unique action cards. 

Kingmakers will do anything to ensure their royalty survive to the palace which includes lying, stealing, trash talking, bluffing, double crossing, throwing your ally under the bus and crying (actually happened!). This gameplay will challenge existing friendships and see where your true allies place their allegience.

 

Assassinate royalty, betray your allies and steal gold on the road to winning the crown for your House.

Nicole Tsang is the artist behind all our card art. Only recently graduating from university, we are mesmerised by her talent as working on Kingmaker is her first card game project.

We are absolutely thrilled with the work she has produced and if you wish to know more about Nicole please click here to direct you to her website.

The cost of shipping has been integrated within the pledge tiers. So there's no need to worry about additional costs :)

Kingmaker
is being directly shipped by airmail from China, through this mechanism we are able to supply our game more efficiently on a global scale. Furthermore, as the game is valued at USD $19 this implies that it is exempt from thresholds (i.e VAT and HST) in most countries.

EU Friendly Tier

We want to be able to make Kingmaker available for everyone so, this option is directed for backers in Denmark, France, Greece, Romania and Sweden. As there is no VAT threshold within these countries we are organising to send the game from a fulfillment warehouse within the EU. This minimises the risk of any additional costs that backers from these nations may incur.

Retailers 

If you are a retailer wanting copies of Kingmaker please do not hesitate to contact us directly and we'll organise how we can work together.                     

                                              

Why Kickstarter 

This is our first game to be released and understand how important Kickstarter is to up and coming artists. It's a platform to get started and an opportunity to join an amazing community who are extremely supportive. We've watched other artists go through Kickstarter and seen how great it is.  

Kickstarter provides us with the most viable options in obtaining the greatest amount of support and feedback. Through this avenue we are also able to provide our backers with a greater experience by giving you the opportunity to assist in the development of the game.

By choosing to support us through Kickstarter, you will gain the opportunity to receive it before anyone else and cheaper! Once the game begins selling through other methods, we cannot guarantee the game will remain at this price. We’ve tried to make it as affordable as possible for the Kickstarter community.

We thank you for your support with Kingmaker and value the passion and commitment you have showed us.

Risks and challenges

This is Centennial Games' first game release and we are aware that there are challenges and risks involved. But rest assured, we have analysed the possible risks we could face and by being pre-emptive we hope to overcome this.

Manufacturing and Shipping has the highest level of risk involved. To minimise this we we have made all the necessary arrangements and confident in the quality of the product. We want to make sure that Kingmaker is accessible worldwide, to ensure this, we are shipping our game through airmail from China as this is the most efficient option. However like all things, there is a potential for production delays, shipping delays, and custom delays.

We have also planned out our stretch goals to show our backers the vision we have for Kingmaker. Each goal will be released once the target has been met.

If anything further arises please take note that our backers are our priority and we will do our best to ensure that you’re satisfied.

Thanks for the support!
