 STRETCH GOAL ADDITIONS (INCLUDED IN ALL COPIES):

  • Player count expanded from 3-6 to 2-8. 
  • 2 additional play boards. All 8 will have custom names/descriptions.
  • Upgraded Reigning Ruler token (3D punchboard crown).
  • Constellation Prize Expansion (back side to each board, 60 constellation tokens).
  • Upgraded card stock, spot UV on the box, full color printed interior divider.
  • 8 Kingdom Power/Reference cards.
  • 1 Create your own Free Creature card.

STRETCHIER GOALS:

Ok, full disclosure, you guys cleaned us out in the stretch goal department. Due to the time constraints we have with our printing schedule and availability constraints of our artist, there aren't any additional physical changes we can make at this point. 

In fact, all files except for the rules and the punch board layouts are already being reviewed so we can start printing next month. The good news here is that you've unlocked the full game as we envisioned it, and that you'll receive it in a fraction of the time that many other projects take. Games will ship in October (barring any mishap), just over 4 months from now.

However, that doesn't mean we don't want to continue to award you for your support of the project. So, we've devised a few additional add-ons that we will be delivering to you between now and the time the game eventually ships.

UNLOCKED: $55,000: Upgrade the box insert/component divider from white to color printed featuring Apryl's amazing artwork.

UNLOCKED: $60,000: 5 print at home greeting cards incorporating characters from the game and an HD digital wallpaper pack with artwork from the game. 

UNLOCKED $65,000: A print-at-home table mat with labeled spots for the deck and 2 discard piles.

UNLOCKED $70,000: A digital art-book with concept sketches, rejected Creatures, and a story-book style narrative of each of the Creatures in the game.

UNLOCKED $75,000: A print and play version of Cover Your Kingdom.

UNLOCKED $80,000: 3D print file to print your own Cover Your Kingdom Crown ring. Created by the 3D Printing professor Joe Larson.

Pledge will be added at noon PST. 12 will be available to celebrate the last 12 hours of the campaign.

Surprise! We've added a pledge level.

To celebrate the last 12 hours of the campaign we've added a new exclusive reward level full of items that you literally can't buy ANYWHERE else. It's so much awesome stuff you'll need a Klaken to help carry it.

Why Kickstarter?

With five games in our line-up, thousands of Amazon reviews, and hundreds of thousands of fans of our games, launching a game on Kickstarter might seem like an odd choice. We have the funding, the game's design is almost complete, and we're experienced in the production process. 

The reason we are here is simple. We designed our first couple of games for the family market. Our last couple of releases, Skull King + Legendary Expansion, The Bears and The Bees, and now Cover Your Kingdom, are still excellent games for families to play. 

However, with their more advanced mechanics they have sufficient depth and strategy to find broader appeal at the tables of casual and hobby gamers as well. They have been warmly received and well reviewed by many within these groups, but we are still relatively unknown in the gaming community as a whole. 

That is the reason we made the decision to launch Cover Your Kingdom on Kickstarter. It's also why we are offering our best pricing of all time when you purchase a bundle of this new game along with our other 3 best sellers. All three are included for $24, or $8 each (50 cents over wholesale), when you buy them together with a copy of Cover Your Kingdom.

We strongly believe that if you buy the games, and try them, that you'll love them and share them with those you play with. If you love the games, we know that when you teach them to those you play with, that they will them too. They'll also love you for introducing them to these excellent games that we stand behind 100% as a family.

From our table to yours,

Grandpa Beck - Grandpa Beck's Games

Risks and challenges

We've been producing games for close to a decade now and have found a very reliable printing partner that produces our orders on-time with exceptional quality. However, this game requires a different packaging size and new components that we haven't included before.

We don't anticipate this causing any issue or delays, but new wrinkles can sometimes cause unforeseen complications. In the unlikely event that we do encounter a set-back, we will be transparent with our backers and do our best to resolve any issues promptly.
