Colony Clash: Insect Warfare is a card game where players fight using their chosen insect race to defeat the other players. Players build food production resources and their insect army over the course of the game to achieve victory!

Colony Clash can be played by 2 to 4 players. Each player controls one of four species; the Ant Colony, the Royal Mantis, the Beetle Settlement or the Fly Monarchy. (Additional decks can be added on, see pledge levels and updates!)

What makes this card game unique amongst other card games in the market? 

This game is about card fighting and economy building, with the overall goal of winning by defeating all enemies or win by reaching 100 food stacks. All insect race have their own unique strengths and weaknesses, with some races geared more towards economy building with weak but cheap units, while others have strong military supremacy but expensive units. 

Upkeeping - As part of the rules of the game, you can upkeep up to 5 cards in your hand unless you can pay the upkeep fee for exceeding cards. Upkeep fee is equivalent to the number of excess cards in your hand. For example, if you have 7 cards in your hand, you have 2 upkeep cards, so you will have to pay 2 food at the end of your turn, or pay 2 Hive life points, or discard the card. It’s not just about producing or summoning units, you need to build a large food income in order to use insect skills, produce units, repair your Hive & get Hive life points back. 

Another fun feature of the game, you get to play as those pesty bugs!

For a step by step guide on how to increase your pledge amount after backing, check below or click here to see our update (with images) on the topic.
To Increase An Already Existing Pledge Follow These Steps:
Step 1:
Go to the Colony Clash campaign page and click the blue "Manage Your Pledge" button.
Step 2: You'll be taken to a page that shows you what your pledge amount is. Below will be the various pledge level rewards listed in order. (Note the add-on pledges have been removed)
Step 3: If you have backed at the COLONY I, COLONY II or HIVE pledge levels, simply add $10 to your pledge amount. If you backed at the HIVE III pledge level, add $30 to your pledge amount to secure the two decks for each of your game boxes.
Step 4: Make sure you DO NOT change your pledge level reward in the "Reward Selection" section! You can pledge more to a project than the reward level and this is how we will keep track of who has paid for the add-ons.
Step 5: When that's all done, hit "Continue to next step" at the bottom of the screen. A window will pop up to confirm your changes. Again, make sure your pledge has the needed amount for the add-on decks as well as any shipping required.
Step 6: After hitting confirm you will be sent to the main campaign page and a small message should appear saying, "Your pledge has been updated."

For New Backers
If you are a new backer backing at the COLONY I, COLONY II or HIVE pledge reward levels, simply add $10 on to your total pledge amount. (So backing at the HIVE pledge level for the $45 reward you would pledge $55 to get the two add-on decks)

Backers backing at the HIVE III pledge reward level, add $30 to your total pledge amount.

Be sure to also include any shipping costs for those shipping outside of the US.

Surveys will be sent out when the project is completed to finalize your order of the add-on decks. As long as you have the additional funds added to your pledge, your game box will include the additional add-on decks.

Risks and challenges

Please take note that the final printed products may differ from the products posted here. There are some technical difficulties & size issues occur in producing such products. Every project campaign has a risk & challenges; Development delay, man power shortage, back-end technical problems or difficulties; production problem, these are some issues that may result in delayed production.

Our team has launched a number of projects on Kickstarter including Grand Tactics and Gladiator: SPQR. Neither of those projects reached their funding goals, but we learned a lot from them and have better developed our presentation. The Kickstarter leader here, Eric, (working with another team at the time), successful produced 13 episodes for Super Apartment Bros after reaching their crowdfunding goal, though was unable to finish the finale episode.

Since all of that we've learned a lot from our past projects and have taken it and applied it to this, our latest project. We are very excited to present Colony Clash for the world to see and hope you will see something you like and help us reach our new goal!
