Havenfall is an adventure deckbuilding game set in the 8-bit world of Edonia. It is a 2-4 player game where each player takes on the role of a survivor from the town Ember. The Djiran have opened a rift, corrupting the land, inhabitants, while destroying everything in their path. As survivors, players flee to the city of Havenfall and meet with the Council to stop the invasion.
Havenfall was inspired by:
Games: Thunderstone and Dominion
TV Shows: Avatar: The Last Airbender

Game Board | 4 War Rooms | 343 Cards | Scoreboard
4 Meeples | 22 Wooden Cubes | 30 Card Dividers | Rulebook
Players start with the same 10 cards. Each player starts as a different color with a pixel corresponding to that color. Each color represents a specific play style:
Blue: Gains free spells with a focus on game manipulation and control.
Red: Steals cards from opponents and attacks other players. This is the chance/luck play style.
Green: Draws additional cards and is stronger at fighting monsters and defensive tactics.
Yellow: Increases treasure amount, allowing the player to buy expensive cards faster. Also provides distinctive ways to trash cards.
The numbers on a monster's card are the required player damage and health. If a player can match or exceed those numbers with their cards, then they can defeat the monster. If a minion is defeated, the remaining monsters move left (ex. Minion 2 becomes Minion 1) and the next boss is revealed.
There are 40 monster cards: 10 blue, 10 red, 10 green, and 10 yellow. Each monster has a rank between 1 and 5 indicating its level of difficulty. There are two types of monsters: minions and bosses. When a minion is defeated, the player gains a pixel associated with the monster's color. When a boss is defeated, the player gains a pixel and points based on the Boss's rank.
There are 40 unique spells. Players gain spells when the Spell Book is in play and can have a maximum of five spells at any given time. Spells can be gained whether a player is buying, fighting, or trashing as long as the player has the required amount of treasure to purchase it. Players conceal their spells from other players and can use a spell any time during the game.
All Spells require pixels in order to play the card. Spells may only require one gray pixel (any color) or up to four pixels--one of each color.
Each player has a unique leader card corresponding to their color. Leader cards boost players' decks, which help when fighting Bosses.

Kickstarter gives us the opportunity to transform our hobby into a real product that will be distributed to a worldwide audience. We are seeking Kickstarter's support to see if there is enough interest in having the game produced. Our Kickstarter goal is $21,000. This price allows us to mass produce Havenfall and pay storage and distribution fees.
Dabeco Games was started by Joe and Emily Yzquierdo in late 2014 with the goal to create and produce Havenfall. Joe is the creator and designer of the game while Emily handles the operations management. We started Dabeco Games with the hope to turn our hobby into a business where we have complete control over the design and overall vision of Havenfall and any future projects. We hope Havenfall's success will gives us the ability to develop more games in the future and continue to grow our business.

Risks and challenges
A potential risk is unforeseen delays in production from the manufacturer. We will be in constant communication with the manufacturer to ensure that we stay on schedule. If any issues arise, we will immediately work to resolve the problem in order to have the game produced in a timely manner.
One challenge is the rule book. Minor changes to the rule book need to be made in order to update graphics and provide clearer instruction. The time required to make these adjustments is not expected to delay production.
Havenfall is complete and fully functional. We are not working on any other projects at this time. Our main focus is on the production and distribution of Havenfall.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
