The Maidens of the kingdom keep disappearing. As an aspiring Hero, your job is to rescue them. You must battle the Monsters that have been capturing the Maidens. But you are not the only aspiring Hero trying to rescue the Maidens. Can you rescue the most Maidens and become the Greatest Hero in the kingdom?
Monsters and Maidens is a fun, easy-to-learn dice game with nine fully customized six-sided dice. Players play the role of the Hero trying to rescue the Maidens from the Monsters.
By rolling the dice and comparing the results, players determine the success or failure of their mission. Players may have some rescued Maidens but decide to push their luck and roll the dice again in an attempt to rescue even more. If they aren't careful, though, they will be overtaken by the Monsters and lose some or even all of their rescued Maidens.
Note: Reviewer Prototypes feature wooden cubes for scoring (not included). Epic Fail chips have also since been replaced with cards!
- 9 Dice (3 Hero dice and 3 Monster dice and 3 Maiden dice)
- 2 Character Cards (1 Hero card and 1 Monster card)
- 3 Epic Fail Cards
- 1 Rules Sheet

Shipping is expensive. We've calculated the cost to ship this game to backers around the world and we're subsidizing that to help keep your costs down. The cost to ship this game to backers in the USA is $5.15. Game Salute is covering $5.15 of the shipping cost for ALL backers around the world. That means that the pledge level for US backers includes shipping. For international backers, we're passing along the same savings on shipping. Simply check the chart below, find your destination group, then follow the line to see you total pledge amount.
To keep the shipping costs as low as possible, we ship packages via a variety of shipping services depending on your specific location. We use USPS, FedEx, UPS, and DHL. You will be responsible for any import fees, brokerage or delivery surcharges, or applicable taxes that may be levied after we have shipped your package.
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 through Game Salute Local Support, earning you the full margin on those games, too, just as if you had sold them yourself.
We are pleased to offer access to our game designers and creative team 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.

Risks and challenges
As we enter the crowdfunding phase, Monsters & Maidens is all but finished! Your participation will help us determine how awesome we can make the production of Monsters & Maidens. Certain stretch goals will require additional art if we fund at those levels, so we have set an extended delivery date to be on the safe side. Every game project is subject to potential production delays, but we believe we've allowed enough wiggle-room for this game. The final challenge is getting the game and rewards out to the backers. Game Salute is well versed in Kickstarter reward fulfillment and we are prepared to meet this challenge for Monsters & Maidens.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
