Revolution is in the air. New alliances are being formed: take control of Pigs, Cows, Goats or Chickens and raise your animal army. Use the farmland to harvest resources and marshal new forces. Direct your generals and their troops to outsmart and overcome the other factions. Take control of precious resources and use your faction's special forces to gain an edge over your foes. It is a call to farms - harvest your destiny!

Features. Livestock Uprising features a random play area every game, strategically unique Special Forces for each faction, dynamic board sizing based on the amount of players, and a sweeping end game that resolves the farmyard conflict.

Details. The game plays with 2 to 4 players, takes 90-120 minutes to play, and is intended for an audience of age 14 and older.

Risks and challenges

Bringing a board game to market is no joke. We successfully brought our first game ‘Lakebilly’ to life via Kickstarter last year (see www.lakebillycardgame.com). This gave us experience dealing with all aspects of the development process including: budgeting, advertising, handling manufacturers, pitching to retailers, and the logistics of storage and delivery. Livestock Uprising is an excellent game and we're proud to publish it as our second title. We currently have a manufacturer in place that we are accustomed to working with, a timeline that is realistic, and a company dedicated to producing awesome games. After producing Lakebilly we wrote a few articles about the challenges we faced and how we overcame them (see www.dogmight.com/articles). The only thing we love more than making games is the backers that allow us to do so!
