About

KingSlayer is a two player strategy based card game where players lay siege on each other’s Fortresses with the objective of killing the opponent’s King who is hidden somewhere in the Fortress.

KingSlayer is easy to set up, pick up and fun for all ages. We like to think of it as a mash of Chess and Age of Empires. 

  1. There are 2 types of Cards - Siege & Fortress Cards. 
  2. The 50 Siege Cards are shuffled and placed in a common pile.
  3. Each Player gets 32 Fortress Cards and must lay them out face down in front of them in stacks of 2. We recommend a 4X4 grid. This is your Fortress.  
  • Hidden somewhere in this Fortress is The King Card. The objective of the game is to use the Siege Cards to attack each other's Fortresses to find and kill the King.
  1. Each player draws 5 Siege cards from the Siege Card pile and take turns attacking each other's Fortress. There are a variety of Siege cards with attacking and defending capabilities.
  2. You can only attack an exposed card (card on the outside perimeter of the Fortress) unless specified. 
  3. To attack, you play a Siege Card and point to the Fortress Card you want to attack. The opponent must reveal the Fortress card. The stronger card prevails. If the Fortress Card is destroyed it must be discarded. If the Fortress card is defended, then it stays face up, revealed, in it's position.
  4. If you dislike your hand, you may skip a turn and collect 5 new cards from the Siege Card pile.
  5. The first person to kill the opponent's King wins the game.
     

Our artwork is inspired by The Morgan Bible (aka The Maciejowski Bible aka The Crusader Bible ) produced in 13th century France. It features miniature paintings depicting events from the Hebrew Bible. 

There are 2 types of cards in the Box. 

  • 64 Fortress Cards (32 per player)
  • 50 Siege Cards
Fortress Cards - Team A
Fortress Cards - Team B
Siege Cards

None. There are no stretch goals. This is our first Kickstarter and we would like to keep it simple and  be able to deliver our one product on time and with high quality. 

We have ideas for a second edition (larger fortresses, more civilizations & maybe sorcery based siege cards) which we would love to do based on the response to this Kickstarter. 

To see an idea visualized as an actual physical object is so empowering and we are pumped that we are at the cusp of the manufacturing phase and to see how people react to our final product.

After months of play testing and working on the art work, we are so glad to bring this project to the Kickstarter community and audience. We hope you embrace this game like our small group of play testers has. Thank you!

Risks and challenges

We humbly submit that this is our first time handling printing and international delivery. We have publishers lined up in India but to account for our inexperience we have dedicated enough of a buffer in the timeline to account for any unexpected surprises.

This is a game with simple components so that should be in our favor.

We will keep you guys updated throughout the production and shipping phases.
