About

This crowdfund is for different things, all will be made:

  • *Roll To The Top&Bottom* special challenge
    -- 30 sheets pad or 5 laminated sheets.

  • *Roll to the Top! Laminate* with laminated sheets and dry-erase markers
    -- Base game (6 different Challenges, 5 sheet sides for each Challenge)
    -- SPECIALS pack (includes the new *Roll To The Top&Bottom*).

See the 2nd pledge level for upgrading your *Roll to the Top!* 1st edition.

Laminate production costs are higher, delivery costs (weight) lower, so the base game plus SPECIALS pack is only EUR 22,- including delivery!

NEW SPECIAL CHALLENGE FOR BOTH EDITIONS:
- For the 1st edition: 1 pad with 30 *Roll to the Top&Bottom* sheets (see the 1st pledge level)
- Included in the *Roll to the Top! Laminate SPECIALS pack* (see the 4th pledge level)

  • 15 double-sided laminated A6 sheets: 5 sides for each of 6 different challenges:
    Burj Khalifa / Pyramid / Eiffel Tower / Matterhorn / Tree / Space Needle
  • 5 dice: D4 / D6 / D8 / D12 / D20
  • 1 custom die with 2x ' + ', 2x ' - ', 1x ' -/+ ' and 1x exchange sign
  • 5 dry-erase markers with erasor.

15 double-sided laminated A6 sheets: 5 sides for each of 6 different SPECIAL challenges:

  • Wooden House: Long squares and wide squares.
  • Art to the Top: Long, wide and both longer&wider squares.
  • Heydar Center: Partly Increasing mode and partly Decreasing mode.
  • Roll Your Own: Make your own challenge!
  • Cube House: Start spaces are at different heights.
  • Roll To The Top&Bottom: Start in the middle, Increase up, Decrease down.

GOAL OF THE GAME: Fill in all the squares on your sheet!

Rules in the game box are English+German+French+Dutch.
Rules in the game box are English+German+French+Dutch.

Click here for a larger picture of the English rules.

MAIN RULES: Fill in numbers from the bottom to the top, with each new number higher than or equal to each number underneath.
Simultaneously, all players can use the rolled dice to fill in their numbers.  The squares can contain a number from 1 die or the sum of 2 or more dice. You can also skip 1 or more dice.
Use the capricious 4, 6, 8, 12 and 20 sided dice the best!

Try out your climbing skills with *Roll-to-the-Top!* online. Play 2-player-matches and tournaments or practice against the AI. Easy at first, but you soon discover new depths.

Backers get full access to Roll-to-the-Top! online, 1 per backed game. (USD 2.99 otherwise)

We reached EUR 7K, so the *Roll to the Top&Bottom* special challenge and *Roll To The Top! Laminate* edition with laminated SPECIALS pack all get produced!!!!!

box is 21x12x3.5cm
box is 21x12x3.5cm

STRETCH GOAL:

At EUR20K: The sheets will have thickness '350grams paper' (without the laminate weight) instead of '300grams paper'.

DON'T USE THE 1st EDITION MARKERS ON LAMINATED SHEETS!
-- Writing with "normal" markers doesn't work: the ink doesn't attach to flat plastic.
-- And the part of the ink that does attach doesn't wipe away well.
((tested with the factory's laminate samples))

RAHDO'S FINAL THOUGHTS:

"... so fast and so compelling, so compulsive and so deceptively simple."

This project reached this stage by the dedication of:

  • Steven Tu (artist)
  • Josh Riley (online game version)
  • Ron van Dalen (video)
  • Claire Turvey (video voice)
  • Christof Tisch (rulebook layout)

  • You!  And many others.

Risks and challenges

In past years as author & publisher, challenges have always occurred and have always been overcome.
After the fund goal is met, 1 month to finish up prepress work, 1 month production time, 1 month transport to the delivery hubs and a few weeks for delivery to the backers is possible. So we aim for delivery in March.
Cost calculations were made carefully, so that hopefully many backers join!
