Poseidon has lost his treasured trident, and your friends have disappeared while trying to find it. It turns out they have been captured by evil Hans the Kraken. Suckers! The Kraken plans to make a nice stew out of them. Can you pry open his tentacles, release your friends, and defeat him? Hope so. Oh, it's probably not a good time to mention the shark...
Poseidon's Kingdom was released by Fragor Games in 2011 as their limited edition tricked-out Essen game. It featured a giant wave crashing dozens of dice onto the board and thirteen wonderful large pre-painted cast-resin figurines.
Their limited print run sold out in a few short days and it's been out of print ever since. You can occasionally find a copy for sale on Amazon (currently $220) or the BGG Marketplace (currently €199), but that's way too much. Game Salute thought it was high time to get Poseidon's Kingdom back into print and Fraser and Gordon Lamont, the designers, agreed.
Right now, during the month of September 2014, you can pre-order the Poseidon's Kingdom Limited 2nd Edition here on Kickstarter for delivery by August 2015. Ya, that sounds like a long time off, but we've learned from previous campaigns to pad in plenty of time for glitches. If we can ship sooner, we absolutely will do so.
This is a limited printing, due to the super high quality and the corresponding cost of this new edition.
This box is BIG and packed with super-high quality components including the 14 special fully-painted cast-resin figurines. We estimate the shipping box will weigh around 8 pounds fully packed! We haven't unlocked a magical teleportation method yet, but we are shipping from various points around the globe and subsidizing postage for each pledge to help keep the shipping costs as low as possible for this massive box of fun!
USA rewards will be shipping from the USA at no additional charge. Canadian rewards will ship from Canada. EU rewards will ship from the EU. Wherever possible, we're helping you avoid additional customs and VAT charges on delivery.
Everything from the original Poseidon's Kingdom is here in the 2nd Edition -- the double-sided game board, the kraken-trackin' sideboard, the giant crashing wave, the same large pre-painted cast-resin figurines, 55 translucent dice, thick punchboard coral and reef tokens, and a well-illustrated rulebook with goofy nautical puns. There's even a brand new "Dolphin" figurine that can offer shark protection to your ocean creatures...if you roll high enough. And don't forget the all new art throughout the game.
The excellent video featured near the top of this page was created by the BGG team at Essen Spiel 2011 and features the designers, Fraser and Gordon Lamont taking you on a tour of Poseidon's Kingdom First Edition. It's a great introduction to Poseidon's Kingdom and you should definitely watch it. There's also a BGG video from 2011 below that will walk you through everything.
The 2nd Edition rulebook PDF is also available either at this link or by clicking the How To Play header.
The first edition of Poseidon's Kingdom was very well received in reviews by Tom Vasel and Scott Nicholson in these videos from 2011.

Fragor Games was established in 2004 by Scottish brothers, Fraser and Gordon Lamont (FRA + GOR = Fragor). Their first game was Leap Frog and they've steadily released one new game each year, building an eager fan-base that quickly snaps up their limited print-run releases. Two of their most popular games, Snow Tails and Sheer Panic, have gone on to wide release through licenses to major publishers.
Game Salute is so excited for the chance to bring Fragor's Poseidon's Kingdom back for a 2nd Edition and we hope you'll support our project.
