About this project
Introducing Ultimate Dinosaur Fighting
Ultimate Dinosaur Fighting is a highly tactical battle board game of Dinosaur Pit Fighting.
In the near future, cloning dinosaurs becomes commonplace. Private corporations began building special zoo's across the world, but the cost for security spiraled out of control and the zoos began to keep their dinosaurs tranquilized. Demand waned and underground fight clubs quickly became popular and began producing huge dividends. Larger and larger dinosaurs were pitted against each other until today we have Ultimate Dinosaur Fighting.
Step into a world where you control these ancient beasts where every movement and action could be their last. The game is easy to learn, fast paced, quick to setup, has a high replay value and is just great fun.
You can play as a one off battle or run a stable of dinosaurs using the campaign rules. In the campaign game, you add in Mutations, Tech Upgrades and Training to ready your prized prehistoric gladiator to take on any beast in the pit.
For a complete walk through of the rules, check out The Undead Vikings review video below. He does an excellent job.
The rules have been written, the board designed, the cards finished, the dinosaur battle sheets completed, the dinosaurs have all been balanced, the supplies all sourced, a sculptor has already completed the first 2 dinosaurs and is just waiting on the funding to jump into the next phase of the project.
I am asking for funding to complete the artwork, sculptures and to get the first print run of the game produced..

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT SHIPPING
Shipping & Handling: Shipping charges will be invoiced at the end of the Kickstarter campaign. Only the shipping cost will be invoiced. Transparency is important to us. We have opted to charge separately for shipping as part of our effort to provide individual backers with the best value. Every package WILL have the final postage fee printed on the label for verification. A tracking number will be provided when the reward ships. Estimated shipping costs are exactly that- estimates. The final weight of product is undetermined but most rewards are expected to weigh less than 4 lbs.
Rewards for US supporters will be shipped via the least expensive parcel shipping available. The expected shipping for the majority of orders are described below: All Box-sets fit in USPS Medium Flat Rate Shipping Boxes (est. $12). Shipping on all US orders will not exceed the USPS Medium Flat-Rate box rate. In other words, pledge your heart out, we’ll make up the difference.
International orders will be invoiced at actual postage cost. International postage requires customs forms. We are required by law to disclose the pledge amount on these forms. If you are unsure how expensive international shipping can be, please ask us for an estimate.
"This game fits 2-6 players and games with more players tend to go more quickly (as 6 raging and upgraded dinosaurs can cause a LOT of damage). The versatility in the combat comes from the different options to upgrade your dinosaur through Tech, Mutations and/or special Training which sounds like a lot of fun too me. UDF lets you put lasers on a Triceratops-what more do you need?" - Nicole Jekich
The Family Showdown did a review. Check it out.
I have several stretch goals planned.
The higher we go, the more exciting they get.
FUNDED!! Thank you so much. All backers will receive a short piece of original fiction set in the Ultimate Dinosaur Fighting World by a published Sci-Fi and Fantasy author. This was not part of the original package but it is my way of saying thank you.
Also!! Professional Graphic Artist overhaul on the Dinosaur Sheets. I have already started the artist working on these, they should look fantastic. So they will be included in the basic game!!
All backers of Triceratops level and above will receive soft copies of all 8 of the Star Species Champions. These will be Stars of the UDF world. Try your hand against these tried and true masters of the fighting pit.
Professional Graphic Artist overhaul of the game board.

All backers of the Triceratops level and above will have their standard dice upgraded to special Ultimate Dinosaur Fighting Custom Dice
I'd like to thank my friends at Dallas Design Group for all their help.
Risks and challenges
Why should I trust you with my money?
Simply because we are capable of delivering and have already put forward a great deal of money to see this through. We have done the research, we have spent time and spoken to other Kickstarter project owners and learned something from each that turned out useful in the planning and execution of the Ultimate Dinosaur Fighting Kickstarter.
Outside of Kickstarter I have professional experience managing multi-million dollar projects with tight resources and tighter schedules. I've written 2 books on gaming, and published a bi-monthly game magazine for almost 2 years. If you want more details, check my full bio or feel free to send me a message and ask.
How can you guarantee my pledge reward?
In truth we can't. We did the next best thing by alleviating much of the risk of being a backer.
Simply by paying for everything possible upfront so that no unexpected costs can get into the way of your positive experience with Dark Cult Games.
What are the risks?
In Kickstarter the risk to the backer is in not receiving all of the reward that matched their pledge level. For Ultimate Dinosaur Fighting we have done everything in our power to minimize these risks for everyone in advance. Much of the artwork is done, The sculptors have already started, and we have assurances from all of our suppliers that they can deliver on time.
What about the endless delays experienced by some other projects? Delays on things we do not, and cannot, directly control are an unfortunate possibility. But we will do everything in our power to make things right for you the backer.
We are glad you are taking a look at our project and hope you become one of our backers.
Thank you from the Dark Cult Games team.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
