Historical Conquest: The Journey Through Time is an adventurous card game where players can create personalized societies with key players from history and battle them one against another; anyone, anywhere, anytime. Each card is complete with: fantastic illustrations of people, places, events in history; abilities in the game according to the abilities they had in real life; and a full summary of their actual history. Eric the Red can help the Mongol Army conquer Argentina during the Black Plague. Albert Einstein can live peacefully in Japan under the leadership of Abraham Lincoln during World War I. The possibilities are endless, as is the fun!
If you can imagine a game played with actual heroes and villains worldwide from throughout history, you understand the concept behind Historical Conquest. The first edition was printed a few years ago and has grown a following; everyone who has played it loves Historical Conquest. Unfortunately, due to certain limitations we were not able to mass produce it… UNTIL NOW!
Historical Conquest was created a few years ago by Zack Edwards as a college project. He was joined by three aspiring artists to create the first edition. To promote the game, Zack wrote a novel based on the idea behind Historical Conquest, whose release information will first be available here on Kickstarter..
Now Zack has been joined by additional partners and artists who believe in this game and are excited for the second print. But to launch the game we must raise an additional $5,000. Printing a quality second edition is proving expensive and that is why we have come to you… JOIN US.
Some of the changes we have made since printing the 1st edition include: thicker card stock,higher quality printing, editing a few errors, larger print, adding more than a 100 new characters, more realistic/adventurous illustrations (less “cartoonish”), and simplifying the rule book…
Each deck contains 50 cards. In addition to the normal assortment of character and army cards found in all decks, each deck includes multiple lands, explorers, and events. Each player will need their own deck to play, because they each need a minimum of 50 cards to begin a game. With the addition of 100 new cards for the 2nd edition, we will have over 250 cards available.
First off, each play will need their own deck. Each deck containing a minimum of 50 cards. Customize you deck to hold the strongest and most effective cards.
We know how rule books can be boring to read and sometime keep you guessing to know if you are playing it correctly. (If you want to read a rule book, click here)
We know how drawn out tutorials can’t always answer all your questions (If you want to watch a tutorial, we have that as well, click here)
If you want to get past all that and really see how this game played, we will show you the way. Watch our example game, it may be longer, but it is well worth it.
FIRST STRETCH GOAL $10,000: METALIC INK for all cards – We had the hopes of printing all of our cards in metallic ink because of the great flare it brings to the cards but due to pricing on printing this ink we have decided to hold off. If we reach this goal, all 2nd edition cards will be printed with metallic ink. - IF WE REACH THIS GOAL EVERYONE WHOSE DONATED $19 OR MORE WILL RECEIVE A FREE 1ST EDITION DECK. THOSE THAT SIGNED UP FOR THIS REWARD, INITIALLY, MAY CHOSE ANOTHER INITIAL REWARD.
SECOND STRETCH GOAL $20,000: We will produce a smart-phone app for Historical Conquest. This app will help you keep track of points, abilities, and your civilizations. With helpful hints as you play, this is a great way to keep the game moving. - IF WE REACH THIS GOAL, EVERYONE WHOSE DONATED OVER $19 WILL RECEIVE A FREE COPY OF THIS CELL PHONE APP
THIRD STRETCH GOAL $30,000: In addition to creating a Historical Conquest app, a complete database of all characters and an extended history to be available on line as well on the app. - ALL BACKERS WILL RECEIVE FREE ACCESS.
FOURTH AND FINAL STRETCH GOAL $50,000: We will create the first ever interactive collector’s card. Design is still in development but test prototypes work well. Information must stay confidential but if we meet this goal, all backers over $100 will be introduced to this new technology and each rewarded with a prototype playing card that is compatible with all 2nd edition cards.

Risks and challenges
There is so much to do in the next two months, from conventions we have been asked to attend, local tournaments, printing, sending decks out to distributors, and getting your gifts out on time. For this reason we will be preparing systems and working pro-actively to make sure everyone is taken care of and our work is top of the line.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
