HAGGIS is a casual "beer and pretzels" style miniatures game about playing golf in a high fantasy world. Players will: create heroes, hire caddies with various special abilities, acquire equipment and magical upgrades. All in an effort to best other players and avoid monsters and hazards on a tabletop fantasy golf course of your design!
- Fun and unique game premise
- Low cost
- Easy to learn
- Requires few miniatures
- Suitable for solo or group play
- Includes campaign rules for character advancement
The rulebook will be digest size and about 70 pages long. Full color photos and artwork will be found throughout the book. All rules needed to play will be included and the purchase of extra supplemental rulebooks will not be needed. The game has been playtested for a period of 10+ years.
What’s a miniatures game without miniatures? We’ve teamed up with David Okum to produce papercraft miniatures specifically for HAGGIS. Five iconic characters will be available initially, with more coming as stretch goals are met. You will be able to get started right away by printing out as many paper models as you need and not have to worry about painting new figures!
The more money we raise for this project the cooler the project becomes and the more stuff you get! As we meet the goals set below more papercraft miniatures will be produced, more art commissioned and so on.
$400: Yeay! The HAGGIS rulebook sees print and the first 5 papercraft minis get produced!
$600: Five more papercraft minis get commissioned. Get your wizard and goblin among others!
$800: Art, art, beautiful art! More interior art is commissioned.
$1000: Another 5 papercraft minis! The succubus is entering the game!
$1200: Produce the minis in different color variations.
About the Author
Matthew Byers, also known as "Fez Sinister", is the author of the Graveyard of Heroes RPG and owner of Fez Sinister Games. Over the years he has served as president, treasurer, secretary and terrain master of the E'ville Knights game club where he originally presented the rules for HAGGIS to a bemused crowd. Every so often people still ask him if he is ever going to publish that silly golf game of his.
Risks and challenges
The rulebook is all written and layout is nearly complete. This is not my first book so I am aware of what needs to get done in order to complete the project. For the above reasons this Kickstarter campaign should be considered low risk.
At this point in the project I just need money to make sure all the artists working on the project get paid. If I don't receive commissioned art in a timely manner it is possible the delivery date may have to be pushed back but that is unlikely because I have built in plenty of extra time into the project schedule.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
