A Resource Gathering, Carapace Crunching, Colony Crushing, Insect Card Game!
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!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
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!

What's the difference between the $38 COLONY I – The Early Bird promo, The Late Bird promo, and the $45 Colony Clash Game set?
Those levels all get you the full game and set, but the $38 and $40 are the Early Bird and Late Bird promos we are offering. We want to reward those who get in on our project early so those are available at a discount from what the final game will be sold at. The $45 is still cheaper than the store price will likely be, (since we're shipping it right to you and not through a store), but is not at as a great a discount as the Early Bird promos.
They are limited so get your order in while you can! After they are gone, you'll only have the one option to get the full game or more!
Still working on the rulebook. We would like to ask for comments & suggestions to help clean the rulebook up. Card game rule books are a little bit difficult to finalize, as since it is not yet printed, we can still improve/modify it.
For now, no. It is currently only available through this Kickstarter.
"This is a tough part, since we are still beginning in this industry, we haven’t contacted many distribution firms. But I believe we will eventually be able to properly get in touch with Shop Owners/Distributors about if it’s possible to for wholesale/retailing of this game." -Dan Pueblo, Team Leader
"Regarding adding another pledge level, we are thinking on what more we can add with the pledge levels. If you have suggestions, please let us know."
We would appreciate feedback on what backers, (present and future), might be interested in in regards to additional pledge levels offering rewards outside of the game. iPhone Cases, T-Shirt, prints and posters, etc are all options we've looked at, but we're not sure what you all think. These would be things below the normal game set pledge or stacked with the game for higher levels.
"Our card size is poker size, which is 2.5 inch x 3.5 inch. I believe we are still in the standard size for card games. Also, regarding the quality of the card, we are still seeking for the best card manufacturer and these 2 manufacturing company are on our top list: Panda Games & Admagic. " For our prototyping and gameplay testing we have been using nonstandard card sizes that are just easier to print on our own and use cheaply and efficiently.
Our friend sent us a quick review from a prototype of their project made by admagic located in NJ. The game is NOVUS feature card game and is currently live in Kickstarter too. They mentioned that the quality is great and aside from that the manufacturer is in NJ. So we are still waiting for further information, we already sent emails to various manufacturers. Keep in touch, we will notify the backers as soon as possible."
