We have now achieved several major stretch goals, adding three expansions to the game as well as six add-on sets and more, please see the reward level info at the bottom of the campaign page and below for details on what each reward level now includes, as they now have more rewards than when they started, making the reward descriptions to the side appear inaccurate.

Harem Girl Cards
These cards make up the majority in the game and are what you collect in order to win.
These cards have a number of different info sections for use within the game.
1. Card Toy Type.
(Show what toy cards can be used to boost the overall lust level)
2. Harem Love Level.
(A heart and number that details the harem girls base lust score)
3. Character Name.
(Used for set matching, it also details whether it is a stack-able X-rated card.)
4. Trope Type.
(This is a title for the Character Tropes Type, aids set matching for score multipliers)
5. Card Type.
(This details what card type this is, harem girl, harem toy or protagonist)
In the game players will place Harem Girls in front of them, stack X rated versions on top and attach toy cards to sets in order to obtain the highest score before an ascension card is drawn.
Harem Toy Cards
These cards can be placed next to specific Harem Girl Trope Sets that match the toy type shown in the top left corner. There are two 'toy' types in the core game; Food & Lingerie.
The above are examples of the newest Harem Toy card designs, after the campaign ends more cards will be unveiled in our regular updates.
These are different to other cards in that in most cases they are used once and then discarded, these are there to keep the game interesting and changeable by giving players special abilities.
Each card in this category has different rules that allow players to steal, swap or destroy cards from other players on their turn instead of placing a card, there are nine unique protagonists.
The Adult Edition of the game will include a male and female version of the protagonist cards.

Risks and challenges
We have been developing the Harem Wars game, artwork and play testing it for over twelve months and have produced a number of versions that have led us to this final edition we are looking to produce via kickstarter.
If successful we will begin the full production runs based on the orders on kickstarter, and to ensure an efficient production we have run test prints with several different companies to ensure if one fails to deliver a suitable product we can quickly and easily transfer the order to one of the others in our supply chain as soon as all artwork is completed.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
