Pixel Guardians: a Dragon Building & Slaying Card Game

$8,763

278

An evil summoner is calling forth ancient dragons to attack the peaceful kingdom of Pixel! As the dragons storm the kingdom, combine body sections until complete dragons are created.

Use your guardian army to attack these threats by matching attack gems & earn points for slaying body sections. Cast spells to conquer entire dragons, use shiny treasure to lure dragons away from the kingdom, or steal dragon sections from other players by trumping their attack. But be careful…all players are looking to earn fame and glory by collecting the most points and can turn on you at any time! Thwart their attempts by using chains to protect dragon sections you have already conquered and keep them on the battlefield so they can’t be lured away...

Decide the right time to make your moves. Rid the kingdom of these evil beasts & earn the most points to win!

Pixel Guardians is a fast paced dragon building & slaying card game for 2-4 players. Gameplay is approximately 30 minutes.

Game Contents:

64 Dragon Deck Cards, 86 Guardian Deck Cards, 40 guardian markers & Color Rule Book.

There are 5 different dragons types: red, green, blue, yellow and the “wild” rainbow dragon.

A completed dragon must consist of at least a head, one body section & a tail. You may use multiple body sections to create larger dragons.

In order to attack a dragon section, the player must match the attack gem on the Guardian card to the gem on the Dragon card.

Use a double attack to conquer 2 dragon sections with 1 action, or play a trump card to steal a section from another player!

There are special cards in the game that add those sneaky little twists in gameplay along the way!

Summoner: When a Summoner card is drawn continue to draw from the Dragon deck until a complete dragon is formed!

Wild: A Wild Action card can be used to match any of the 4 action gems.

Spells: Casting these powerful ancient spells can defeat an entire dragon instantly! 

Treasure: Be sneaky & lure a dragon off the battle field that has already been damaged by other players.  The dragon is removed & no points are rewarded!

Chains:  Think someone is holding a Treasure card & waiting to strike?  Chain any dragon to the board & make him immune to Treasure cards!

Fireball: Uh oh...you've made the dragons mad!  When a fireball is drawn, all Guardian Markers placed on any dragon head are knocked off!

Stretch goals are a way of saying thank you to the backers for helping my idea become a reality! I will take extra funding and put it back into the game to add more creative ideas and an even better quality product than first imagined with the initial pledge goal. I have many ideas for stretch goals but listed only a few below. As the campaign gets further along, I will add new ones!

Where the money goes...

Printing & Production: We will only deliver a high quality professionally printed game. We are asking for the bare minimum to get this game produced. The majority of the money raised will go to the printing & production of the game.

Shipping & Supplies: Shipping is always an expense. Plus we want to make sure your games & extras are packed the best possible way.

Risks and challenges

Join me on this quest!

This is now my second kickstarter campaign, and I have the experience behind me from my last project to produce a quality game in a timely manner.

I have a great relationship with my printer & the quality is top notch. Tons of feedback was received on my last campaign on the amazing production quality.

I have been in the printing & advertising business for over 15 years.
As an artist & designer, I have worked on projects for such companies as Lucasfilm, Ltd., the NHL & the UFC. I'm a perfectionist & will only deliver a high quality product.

I also believe that communication is everything. Like my last campaign, I plan on frequent updates every step of the way. I'm excited to answer questions & receive feedback from you. Without your support my visions would not become realities.
