Your Morning isn’t starting out great. You woke up very nearly dead. So did everyone around you…also…Grim is here to take you from this life to The AfterRealm.

--SCROLL DOWN FOR STRETCH GOALS!--

Fortunately, there is a way out. You and the other players around you have one chance to escape the Grim Fate that awaits you on the other side…you must defeat one another…and then Grim himself…at a game of his very own making.

GRIM is a "Roll For Your Life!" dice game that is simple to learn and fun to play.  

The game is quick, family friendly, and designed for 2-6 players (although you can play with as many people as you want if you have enough copies of the game).  

The game was created by a group of friends during lunch breaks -- and quickly evolved into something we've really enjoyed sharing with our friends and family and playing for hours.  With the encouragement of said friends and family members we've decided to bring the game to Kickstarter to see if we can't take this little game we made from a dream project into a reality!!

As the campaign begins we are keeping the costs of the game as low as possible while still maintaining a level of production quality that we can be proud of -- BUT -- if we reach our funding goal we have several stretch goals that will be revealed to upgrade the game!

Risks and challenges

All art has been completed for the game, and sample from printers have been provided. Prototypes have been made -- and while this is our first foray into the world of tabletop games -- we have over 15 years experience in business management, product manufacturing, and delivering goods -- we feel very confident we can produce this game on time and with the highest possible quality we can afford.

Our biggest concern right now are the possibilities of delays at the manufacturer level -- but we have baked in time for delivery estimates to accommodate for this possibility, and we even have alternate printers selected in case of a problem with our primary print partner.

    This reward tier includes the mint green edition of Grim for your collection, all Grim Fate cards, mentions, etc...

(your choice) -- Your oddly specific GRIM fate can be about any PG/PG-13 related AfterRealm romp you can think of (although we do reserve the right to refuse anything that is overly graphic, illegal, or too disturbing for the game's audience...let's keep it fun people).

    If writing isn't your thing you can tell us a little about yourself and we'll do it for you!

    Your GRIM FATE card will include your NAME and SOCIAL MEDIA handles (if you like) and will be included with ALL VERSIONS OF THE GAME FOR EVERY SINGLE BACKER.
