Imperium: The Contention

$26,803

496

Imperium: The Contention is the first true 4X card game! Six civilizations compete to become emperor, in a galaxy-spanning empire, the Imperium. Each faction has unique cards and abilities, and comes with a pre-constructed deck. Decks can be customized with over 300 cards (all included). Turns are simultaneous to create a uniquely intense and fast-paced 4X experience.   




Risks and challenges

Imperium: The Contention was created by Gary Dworetsky, the game designer, art director, graphic designer, music composer, and KS campaign manager. There was a steep learning curve involving manufacturing in China, international shipping, and marketing. Luckily many in the board gaming community have been there to help, including the experienced team at Hexy Studio, which has helped tremendously with marketing and consultation.

The biggest risk is the delay in delivery due to unforeseen circumstances. This is of course a risk with any game, but the risk is higher with a first time creator. Game components will be produced in China and held to the highest quality standards. We will not ship the game until it meets such standards.
