About

 A clean sweep for us. The fun of fooling your friends, while secretly conversing with your team is awesome. Some of the codes we came up with made no sense, at all, to anyone, and we couldn’t help but laugh the night away trying to decipher our own code, let alone the other teams.

A roll of the dice. More reviews below.

Hylaria is designed with one thing in mind: creating the perfect game to have a wonderfully hilarious time with friends and family.

And this is what you will find in this box. A game that is a breeze to learn, quick to set up and a joy to play.

Hylaria uses a very powerful tool at its core: the limitless creativity of human beings. When this is combined with cartoony art and unavoidable miscommunication, hilarity is guaranteed.

But it gets even better!

With all the components you will find in the box, you'll be able to play Hylaria Quest, a fun and colorful game for everyone age 6 and up. No matter what type of company you find yourself in, it's alway a good idea to put Hylaria on the table.

 >

Simple = Reliable

Hylaria shows that you can have loads of fun with only thick juicy tiles. By using only cardboard components in this game, we keep everything uncomplicated. This will result in a reliable product and a speedy delivery.

A roll of the Dice

A clean sweep for us. I have never rated a game a ten, and that is just because I do not believe any game to be perfect. This one is darn close though. The fun of fooling your friends, while secretly conversing with your team is awesome. Some of the codes we came up with made no sense, at all, to anyone, and we couldn’t help but laugh the night away trying to decipher our own code, let alone the other teams. REVIEW

Father Geek

According to one Gamer Geek, “I like games that tell you what the intent is, but leave it up to the player to decide how best to go about it.” The Gamer Geeks did an outstanding job of speaking in tongues, quoting movies, shouting Pig Latin, and I’m pretty sure some sort of sign language was also used. I enjoyed both games. Hylaria was good fun with adults, but I think there is room for Child Geeks, too. REVIEW

Will Freeman, games journalist for The Guardian and The Observer

The core rules, illustrations, character, length and pace of the game and all the other fundamental elements are great.

Nox' Spellenzolder (Dutch) First striking thing about Hylaria is the art, bright colors, cheerful characters and clear backgrounds. It does exactly what I'm looking for in an evening of gaming. I delivers a light break between heavy games.

 We've partnered up with the fantastic people of boardgaming.com. You'll now be able to get Hylaria Avatars to parade around with while you're cruising this beautiful boardgame site. Here's a taste:

We have another surprise for you... We'll let you know on the 24th of March.

As one of the heroes that makes this whole project possible, you should be well rewarded. And you are:

- First in the world. You'll be amongst the first to get your hands on this game. Distribution through retail will be a while longer, and there is no guarantee Hylaria will be available everywhere in the future.

- Free (or very cheap) shipping. We'll send out Hylaria to anywhere in the world. In most cases for free, otherwise with greatly reduced costs.

- Help improve the Game. As a Hero of Hylaria, you are helping to make this game even better. Increase the quality of the components and add new game elements through the Stangest Stories ingame expansion.

- Be part of the process. The core of Hylaria is completely finished. But there are still quite some decisions to make I would love to involve you in. With every element that still has to be decided, we'll ask you.

- The LUXURY edition adds an exclusive bonus. Only available via this KS campaign, add 2 sweet-azz Team scoring boards to your box.

Hylaria is my 3rd boardgame project, after Oh no... INVASION!!! and Ortus.

This project is especially near to my heart because I've been able to design this from the ground up. Besides writing the rules, I've designed every character with lots of love. Making sure that all of them have different emotions, looks and feel to them.

But of course I could have never done this without LOADS 'n' LOADS of advice and support from friends and the boardgame community. Massive thanks for that everybody!

If you want to see what else I'm cooking, you're very welcome at my site: FableSmith.com

Some quotes on my other games:

Ortus

I guess I cannot recommend it enough if you’re looking for an awesome little combat game. - Undead Viking


I can, hand on heart, recommend Ortus to anyone seeking a thoughtful, strategic game for their collection. Michael Fox, Little Metal Dog Show

Games of Ortus can take a fraction of the time that it takes to play some of the more involved tactical games out there, but will provide just as much strategic planning. Tiffany Ralph – GamesAreEvil.com

Finally got to play it [Ortus], after months of sitting on it - had a blast! / The game showed up! It looks wonderful. / First of all I have to say that I really enjoy Ortus a great deal, well done! / Sorry to keep messaging, but had my first game of Ortus and it was great! My girlfriend loved it too and promptly kicked my behind / I got my copy today in the US. Everything looks amazing. / Received my base copy of the game today and it is AWESOME   Kickstarter backers just like you!

Oh no... INVASION!!!

You're two for two for us Joost! I definitely, definitely approve of this. Big time! GMS magazine (podcast)

Oh No...Invasion is a small game filled with panic and fun. Everytime you think you have everything under control, something messes up your plans. It's a nice simple game, but with enough difficulty to make your hair gray - just like any good coop game.

And here's my Portfolio!

Risks and challenges

All the components in the game, although numerous are mostly the same: double sided tiles. No weird components or add-ons. The clean nature of this makes it far less likely that something will go wrong in production.

Within the funding goal is calculated a proof sample send from the factory, to guarantee the printing and component quality of the game.

This isn't the first time FableSmith produced a game. We've done so 2 times before. We'll use this experience to handle the production and shipping process professionally.

The delivery date for December is 7 months after campaign's end. We'll work hard to make this deadline and we wouldn't be surprised if we could deliver even earlier. However, disaster can always strike. If it does, we'll do everything in our power to get the game safely to your hands as soon as possible.
