About this project

Key Celeste, a mini-expansion for Keyflower released at UK Expo 2013, is comprised of one large double-sided Key Celeste hexagonal tile, one oversize grey ghost keyple, and a rules sheet. Game Salute is bringing Key Celeste to the USA and giving you the opportunity to get a copy of the original Keyflower game, too.
Please note that our rights to distribute Keyflower and Key Celeste ONLY cover the USA. We cannot send rewards to shipping addresses outside of the USA.
Discovered drifting at sea, unmanned and apparently abandoned, the Key Celeste was towed to port. Her cargo was untouched and the personal belongings of passengers and crew were still in place. What had caused the crew to abandon ship? The terrible truth was soon apparent. The Key Celeste had become a ghost ship!
With Key Celeste added to the game, players bid for the Key Celeste tile and obtain the ghost in the same way that they bid for the turn order tiles. The owner of the ghost can use it to frighten away and replace another player's winning bid. The player who played the ghost takes the replaced worker(s) and places them behind his screen. These workers are now available to play by that player in the usual way. Points are available at the end of the game for the owner of the Key Celeste tile and additionally for the ghost if they own both.
Key Celeste adds more interest and considerations to Keyflower and changes this popular game in more ways than gamers are likely to initially anticipate!

Key Celeste and Keyflower will be available worldwide through Game Salute Select Stores, a network of friendly local game stores, like yours. Game Salute Select Stores are listed in a searchable website at GameStoreLocator.com so that customs can find you quickly. If your store is not listed, please consider registering to become a Game Salute Select Store.
Let us know when you pledge at a retailer level and we'll list your store here to encourage local backers to choose in-store delivery, earning you the full margin on those games, too, just as if you had sold them yourself.
Our Game Salute team is available for podcast, blog, newspaper, or television interviews. Team members can also be present for conventions and event appearances with a timely invitation and appropriate travel and lodging expense allowances.
