Mysterious temples call to brave adventurers in this double rondel strategy game for 2-4 players. Utilize engine building, pattern matching, and rondel movement to collect powerful gems, break curses, and become the greatest adventurer the Magic Academy has ever seen.
We've done a component overhaul to rework the artwork to be colorblind friendly, accessible, and more inclusive of players. We've also listened to many fans and made a standalone score tracker!
Overview: Players are whisked into a brilliantly colored world where they must travel the wilderness, gather crystals of power, and arrange them in patterns to break dark curses on the temples. Breaking curses unlocks the power hidden inside, giving players new abilities and scoring them points!
On your turn you can choose to move 1-3 spaces on the wilderness to collect and trade crystals; or move 1-3 spaces on the temples to gain a colored crystals or break curses!
When you acquire crystals you'll add them to your crystal grid in any open spot. But remember, crystals must be linked in the pattern matching the temples to break curses.
Once you have the matching crystal chain, you can move to a temple and break a curse! You will score points depending on how large your crystal chain is and you will also gain a powerful Rune.
Runes augment your actions. Whenever you land on an action spot that shows one of your runes, you trigger a runic resonance. In the example above, if you had the circled rune and you landed on the green wilderness card, you'd gain 3 colorless crystals + 2 bonus crystals.
Once a player has broken 5 curses the game ends and points from bonus objectives are scored!
If you missed our first Kickstarter you can still pledge here to get ALL of the rewards from this Kickstarter and the previous one!
You can add any additional amount to your pledge for any (and all) add-ons.
For example: If you want Mystery of the Temples and Herbalism, you would pledge for Mystery of the Temples, and add $19 to your pledge for Herbalism, bringing your total pledge amount to $44. After the campaign, you'll select which add-ons you want in BackerKit!
Quality Guarantee: We've already made all the changes we could to Mystery of the Temples while keeping its small box size and affordable price. For this Kickstarter, we're opting for inclusiveness and accessibility instead of simple cosmetic upgrades. Every copy of Mystery of the Temples will have our colorblind changes, be it a Kickstarter edition or retail.
We're covering shipping on the base pledges of just Mystery of the Temples to give backers more of a discount! However, since the other pledge tiers are going to be pretty heavy we have to add a little shipping to those. Please make sure to add the appropriate amount to your pledge.

Risks and challenges
As with our first Kickstarter, the first wave of these games is already in production. This means that we'll be able to get the rewards out to you in record time!
However, just like with our last campaign, speed bumps can come up. We're being very diligent to prevent any issues with the manufacturer, shipment, and fulfillment centers. We've also given ourselves a little bit more time for delivery and fulfillment.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
