Fleet: The Dice Game takes place over 10 rounds with each round having up to 4 phases: a Boat Phase; an Income Phase; a Fishing Phase (even rounds only); and a Town Phase. In these rounds players acquire assets, wealth, power and income.

In the Boat Phase, the starting player rolls boat dice equal to the number players +1. Each player selects one die to unlock license powers and launch boats to catch fish. The remaining die is then used by all players.

In the Income Phase, players collect income on the coin track and adjust for any income bonuses they may have acquired.

In the Fishing Phase, players collect fish in each boat they have already launched.

In the Town Phase, the starting player rolls town dice equal to the number of players plus one boat die. Each player selects one die to either unlock special buildings in the Wharf, activate awesome ships in the Harbor, or go to the Market and gain additional income. The remaining die is then used by all players.

The game ends after 10 rounds. Players add up their points as shown in the five different categories on their score sheet and the player with the most points wins! For more details, please click the link below for the full rules of the game.

Each pledge (from the $26 Deluxe pledge level and above) will receive the following EGGlusive* items with their pledge.

A brand NEW premium license card (3 ct.), Captain's Club, playable with the original Fleet game.

A brand NEW dock card (8 ct.), Research Vessel, playable with the original Fleet game.

*EGGclusive Items - Will ONLY be made available during the duration of this Kickstarter, through our pledge manager, at certain conventions, and through future promotional contests & events.

Matt Riddle & Ben Pinchback
Matt Riddle & Ben Pinchback

Matt Riddle is a husband and father of 2 lovely teens. Employed by the man to keep our country safe, he keeps his sanity by designing board games you may or may not have heard of; playing video games you probably have heard of; and eating. Ben Pinchback is an engineer by day as well as an avid gamer. He used to have hobbies, but now he has 5 kids. He designs games at night because he can't leave the house for fear of the monsters blowing it up.

Matt & Ben began designing games together when Ben approached Matt at work and suggested they design a game together. Later that day, they began discussing the original Fleet game over their lunch. The two have worked together since on a multitude of games including Fleet, Fleet: Arctic Bounty, Fleet: Wharfside, Eggs and Empires, Floating Market, Morocco, Wasteland Express Delivery Service, Little Songbirds, and The Legends of Sleepy Hollow. Matt and Ben both live in rural metro Detroit with their respective families where Ben enjoys the outdoors and Matt does not.

 The E.G.G. Quality Guarantee!

Eagle-Gryphon Games has built a reputation on including the BEST quality components in every game we publish. So, instead of relying on backers to meet certain Stretch Goal criteria in order to "unlock" better component/box quality, we will provide you with the EGG premium production quality you've come to expect from us, right from the start!

Fleet: The Dice Game will be #20 in the illustrious Gryphon Bookshelf Series.

Risks and challenges

Eagle-Gryphon Games has completed 70+ Kickstarter projects to date. All of those projects have either been completely delivered or are in production right now.

Eagle-Gryphon Games stands by our products. Please contact our customer service department at customer-service@eagle-gryphon.com within 30 days of receiving your pledge reward(s) if you are for any reason unsatisfied. We will take every step available to get you exactly what you purchased. We will also send you tracking information whenever possible to remain transparent throughout the delivery of your purchase.

We will always do our best through Kickstarter updates to keep you as informed as possible as to the status of your game(s). However, in this business some uncertain factors are beyond our control, such as holidays, customs, quality control, inspection delays, inclement weather and dock strikes - to name a few. Please understand we have little to no control over such factors. We assure you that you will be the first to know any developments as we learn them.

Put simply: you will get everything we promise to you when you pledge to one of our Kickstarter projects, and it will be delivered to you in as timely a manner as possible.

We reserve the right to combine the shipping of any and all pledges for multiple projects if the shipping runs close to the same time and we can ship them all within a reasonable time frame (30 days) of us receiving them. We will advise you as soon as possible if it looks like we will delay shipping for this reason. You will always have the right to pay additional fees to get expedited delivery on orders.

Shipping issues are relatively uncommon, but they do sometimes occur. We double check all of your games for damage before sending them to you. However, there is a small chance that your games may get damaged during shipping by the carrier. If your package is damaged, please contact us so we can assist you.

We will not ship to Russia, the Ukraine and certain places in Asia and the rest of the world, except for specially-made arrangements wherein the Backer takes the risk involved in receiving the package.
