Falconry, The Board Game

About the Game

Falconry, The Board Game is a game for 2-6 players which follows the basics of falconry in the United States during one season. Players assume roles as general falconers embarking on a hunting season and start by deciding whether to partner with a captive-bred or wild-caught bird of prey. There are 8 raptor options in the base game including  Red Tailed Hawk, Harris's Hawk, American Kestrel, Cooper's Hawk, Peregrine Falcon,  Goshawk, and two surprise species. Players roll a dice to travel around the board and hunt, attend falconry meets, and encounter adventures "in the field." Players earn points for catching wild game and through various Field and Meet Cards. At the end of the game, the player with the most points wins.

Two special expansion packs are also available. The "Falcons & Hunting Dogs" expansion has 18 cards featuring 3 new types of falcons, 3 new game species, and the introduction of hunting dogs in the game. The "Eagle Hunters" expansion has 18 cards including 3 new species (including Golden Eagle!), 3 new game species, and special eagle-focused meet cards.

This game is based on a hunting sport. Suggested age group is 8 years old and up. 

About the Funding

I'm raising funds to cover the costs of producing the game and rewards because I really enjoyed creating it and just want to share it with the falconry community as a whole. If there are any profits, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to raptor conservation efforts and research.

Risks and challenges

Potential risks and challenges of this game include getting all of the rewards shipped on time. If there are any delays at all or incorrect order fulfillment, I pledge to contact all backers affected as soon as I am aware of an issue via email and to continue working to fix the error until everything is corrected.
