Why You WANT Paradise Fallen
If you would like an extra set of Dice and the bag simply add $10 to your existing pledge level!
Something has happened and we have no idea how far or widespread the damage and destruction is. All we know is the government and police have disbanded, the military has gone. Things aren't what they once were. Here in paradise, breathtaking views were a dime a dozen and awe inspiring beauty was a blasé norm. The days of beauty and awe are few and far between now and are to be soaked up as if they could be your last, because they just might be. The ground is broken as are the people. Paradise is no more, it is dark, it is cold. Paradise has fallen.
Please keep in mind all artwork and components are in the Prototype Stage and are not final and may change.
We are having prototype decks printed as we speak and sending them out to trusted reviewers. Stay Tuned and we'll link the reviews here!
Thoughts on Paradise Fallen
"Paradise Fallen is a fun and fast game of trying to stay one step ahead of your opponent(s)." - Fred Mackenzie (Designer of Princes of The Dragon Throne as well as Monsters & Maidens)
"I introduced it, they played it, and they loved it." "One Gamer Geek stated, “This is a fast little game that kept me focused from start to finish. Very satisfying.” All the Gamer Geeks we played the game with agreed it would be an excellent light filler game whenever a game was needed and a challenge desired. They approved Paradise Fallen without hesitation." - Cyrus Kirby aka Father Geek
"...I enjoy the game. There is a subtle strategy in picking the right location to play aberration cards. Each turn has enough strategy to be interesting, but not so much that it leads to overthinking. The rules are short and simple, which makes teaching while playing possible, a treat for anyone who likes teaching games." - Ken Grazier
"...the game is both strategic and light at the same time with just enough take that elements to make you grit your teeth at least once a game at your opponent." "...I was pleasantly surprised by this game and how it plays..." - Anthony Racano
"I've also got a soft spot for small games that pack a big punch. So much so that this was one of the design goals for my own game, The Great Heartland Hauling Co. I’d happily place Paradise Fallen in this category of games"
LIVE Play of Paradise Fallen
John Moller (UnPub) Darrell Louder (Designer of Compounded) and Leslie (Darrell's wife) play an epic full game of Paradise Fallen. The video is a bit long but so worth (**SPOLIER**) it because there is an unbelivable come from behind win by John! Check it out!

Collectible Dice & Bag
While Paradise Fallen doesn't have dice in the game I am a sucker for collectible dice so I thought I would offer them to all of you! Here is a look at the first render I had the fine folks at Chessen make up.
The bag image will be coming soon! This will be a great storage option if you are traveling and don't want to take the box with you.
Please keep in mind these rules are prototype rules and are not final. They are a work in progress.

Without you, our backers, we would not be able to keep making the awesome and fun games you have come to expect from Crash Games. We promise that you are always our first priority when it comes to receiving Paradise Fallen. We will not under any circumstances sell Paradise Fallen to retailers or at a convention until you have your copies. We also promise to keep you informed through every step of the process from the second the project ends until it arrives on your front door step. Our customers are our number one priority and we are only one click away from answering any and all of your questions and concerns.
Here at Crash Games we know that our Kickstarter Backers are the single most important aspect to being able to bring our board games to market. It has truly been an awesome and rewarding journey with Rise!, The Lost Dutchman and Dungeon Heroes. The conversations that we have had with you all at conventions, local game stores, BGG and here on Kickstarter truly inspire us to continue creating and acting as a channel to bring talented designers' and artists' work into the hobby. We are eternally grateful and humbled by your support and we continue to need that support for Paradise Fallen; we simply cannot do this without you. Whether you are a first time backer of Crash Games or a long time supporter there simply aren't enough words to say thank you!

A Whole Lot of Thanks!
A big thank you to all the people that were involved in making Paradise Fallen a reality!
-Thank you to Andrew Wright who showed me a wonderful card game called The Expanse and was willing to take a chance on a theme that only existed in my head and allow me the opportunity to publish such a great game.
-Thank you to Jason Carr for taking a theme and bringing it to unbelievably vibrant life with your talented art. Paradise Fallen would not be half as captivating without your art. I seriously want to live in this world.
-Thank you to Darrell Louder. You are an amazingly talented graphic designer and it is an honor and a privilege to know you and to be able to call you friend. Your hard work on this project made sense of the game and without you it wouldn't be what it is.
And last but certainly not least a big thank you to my beautiful wife, Jessica who believes in the dream that is Crash Games and supports me in this dream in every way possible. We're gonna make it one day baby!
"Traq" Paradise Fallen!
Risks and challenges
The risks for Paradise Fallen are the normal risks for any tabletop board/card game. We have done absolutely everything we can to mitigate these risks as much as humanly possible.
We have completed all of the art and graphic design in the months leading up to launching the project here on Kickstarter. This was done out of our own pocket so that we could cut down on the delivery time.
We are using our consistent manufacturer, Panda Games Manufacturing to make Paradise Fallen. Panda has done a phenomenal job in delivering a high quality product to us in the expected amount of time.
If for some reason there is a hiccup in our process we promise to let you know that information as soon as possible as well as how we plan on overcoming that obstacle.
Crash Games has delivered two high quality games to our Kickstarter backers with Rise! & The Lost Dutchman. Hopefully by now you have seen that we are a company that stands by its commitments including delivering you a high quality game!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
