About

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
Artwork: Castlevania, Super Mario Bros. 3 and Zelda

Game Includes:
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.

A copy of Havenfall contains the following items:

 

 

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.

For more information about Havenfall or to see store products, please visit www.havenfall.com.

A $40 donation will get you, the contributor, a physical copy of the game (shipping fees apply based on location). We want to keep our campaign simple by having fewer rewards, so Havenfall can be quickly produced and distributed. You will be rewarded with limited edition cards distributed only through Kickstarter. Each copy of the game will contain 4 extra leader cards that allow for more options and greater game play. 

An $80 donation will get you two copies of the game with only one shipping fee. Example: A contributor from Canada will receive two copies of Havenfall for one shipping rate of $15.

A $250 donation will get you one customized Monster or Kickstarter Leader card with personalized 8-bit artwork. This reward includes two copies of the game.

An $600 donation will get you four customized Hero, Monster, or Kickstarter Leader cards with personalized 8-bit artwork. If you select to customize a hero card, you will receive a full set of 10 cards for that hero deck. This reward includes two copies of the game.

Thank you for your interest in Havenfall. This project has been a labor of love. Please consider pledging your support!

 

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.
