What is Ultra-Tiny Epic Galaxies?

A game of intergalactic conquest for 1-5 players... in a card box!

Ultra-Tiny Epic Galaxies (UTEG) is EVERYTHING Tiny Epic Galaxies (TEG) is... but much smaller, and it even includes the Satellites & Super Weapons Mini Expansion!! 

Ultra-Tiny Epic Galaxies also features 5 new Rogue Galaxies for Solo Play!

For those of you who have played Tiny Epic Galaxies, you'll be pleased to know that Ultra-Tiny Epic Galaxies plays the same way. It is the complete game, unabridged. 

For those who haven't played Tiny Epic Galaxies, here's a brief overview:

In Tiny Epic Galaxies, and therefore Ultra-Tiny Epic Galaxies, each player controls their very own galaxy! In the game, they will be developing their own empire by managing resources, expanding their fleet, colonizing planets, and exploiting their enemies' position. 

The game runs on a clever dice combo-ing mechanic; players roll for their actions and choose the order in which to take them. This can lead to big "pay-off" turns, especially when combo-ed with planet abilities!

Throughout the game, players spend resources to upgrade their empires, re-roll unwanted dice, and even follow the actions of other players' dice! The follow mechanic keeps all players engaged throughout the game for virtually zero down time.

Players will accumulate power (victory points) based on the level of their empire, as well as for successfully colonizing planets. When a player has reached a power of 21 or higher, the end of the game is triggered.

NOTE: Additional pledge options will be available in PledgeManager after the project concludes. These options will include a single copy of Ultra-Tiny Epic Kingdoms, and 10 packs of either Ultra-Tiny Epic Galaxies or Ultra-Tiny Epic Kingdoms. Other Tiny Epic titles and accessories will also be available in PledgeManager.

Ultra-Tiny Epic Kingdoms is also a full game repackaging of its bigger sibling Tiny Epic Kingdoms. 

Tiny Epic Kingdoms is a Golden Geek award winning 4x game and the first entry in the Tiny Epic series. Check out the original Kickstarter project for UTEK HERE

In Ultra-Tiny Epic Kingdoms, you are a tiny kingdom with big ambitions. You want to expand your population throughout the realms, learn powerful magic, build grand towers, and have your neighbors quiver in fear at the mention of your name. The conflict? All of the other kingdoms want the same thing and there's not enough room for everyone to succeed...

Pick up a copy of Ultra-Tiny Epic Kingdoms either in the bundle pledge or after the project in the PledgeManager.

NOTE: Ultra-Tiny Epic Kingdoms plays 1-5 players. A 12 sided die (not included in the game) will be needed for solo play. You may also use this random number generator offered on our website instead of supplying a 12 sided die: UTEK Random Number Generator 

To keep shipping costs affordable, all rewards for this project will be shipped from the US. However, this campaign will be US-Customs Friendly, CA-Customs Friendly, UK-Customs Friendly, EU-Customs Friendly, AU-Customs Friendly, and NZ-Customs Friendly.

Therefore if you live in any of these regions and have any additional charges for receiving your package, simply email info@gamelyngames.com with a copy of your customs receipt and we will reimburse you via PayPal. A small PayPal fee will apply and will not be reimbursed. 

Shipping Costs 

Every backer is important to us, regardless of location, but the reality is that shipping is very expensive and is a cost we all need to share. To offset this, while remaining fiscally responsible, we have included a small discount for ALL shipping, but no shipping is free.

Single Game • USA = $4, CANADA = $7, EU = $7, Rest of World = $10

Bundle • USA = $7, CANADA = $10, EU = $10, Rest of World = $13

10 Pack Bundle = $15, CANADA = $25, EU = $25, Rest of World* = $35

*We experience high rates of delivery failure for South Africa, South and Central America, and Russia. A higher shipping fee is required for delivery to these locations. 

The 6 design goals of a Tiny Epic game!
The 6 design goals of a Tiny Epic game!

"Tiny Epic" is an exclusive series of small box games produced by Gamelyn Games and designed by Scott Almes.  

Each game in the series is entirely unique but strictly adheres to two core values: TINY and EPIC! 

• TINY being the small box used for each game AND the simple, easy to understand, set of rules each possesses.  

• EPIC being their surprisingly gratifying gameplay. Each is packed with meaningful decisions, layered strategy, and high replayability, traits not typically found in games this size.

Risks and challenges

The publication of a board game is a highly involved process. It can be prone to many mistakes and delays, even for experienced publishers.

We're proud to say that we are prepared for the task at hand and have years of experience in successfully producing board games and fulfilling Kickstarter projects.

Here are the steps we take to prepare and reduce the likelihood of mistakes and delays:

1. We have done significant pre-production. This includes having all the illustrations for the game complete and the graphic art over 95% complete. The production quote is in hand and ready to be executed.

2. We are working with an experienced manufacturing partner. We are familiar with their production requirements, timelines, payment schedules, communication methods and Chinese freight arrangements and costs for when it comes time for shipping. We will provide tracking information for the boat when the games leave China.

3. We are working with an experienced fulfillment partner. We are confident that they can handle any amount of work we send their way. They have fulfilled many projects and have proven to be communicative, punctual and respectful when dealing with our customers.

Above all, I am 100% dedicated to backer communication. I will be transparent with our process and involve our backers as much as possible. I will be present daily during the project to answer any questions and I read every comment. I will provide regular updates and supply photos of the progress.

Thank you for your trust in us!
