About

Gametasia Chess: Mind Game

Gametasia® Chess combines chess, a game of complete information and strategy with no elements of chance, with the draw of Gametasia Cards that generate randomness; that is, incomplete information allowing luck to influence the outcome of chess moves. By adding poker chips, the exchange of Gametasia Treasure Coins brings excitement to every move you and your opponents make on the chess board!

Gametasia Box contains 65 playing cards and 6 Rules Cards!

By combining the games of chess and poker, strategy and luck play equal roles in determining outcomes and winners! Designed for two to four players, the unique deck of 65 Gametasia® Cards requires strategic chess moves with the exchange of poker chips in a face-paced, wagering game of skill and luck that you, your family and friends, can play in one hour or less.

To play Gametasia Chess and Poker Chess, each card reveals a chess symbol in the right-hand column. Under the chess symbols at the bottom of each card, players find their penalty tax payments and their Reward for Capture amounts, 1 to 585 points. Letters of the alphabet are found in the left-hand column, used for Vocabulary Battle. The rules for the five card games come in your Gametasia Card Box. The purpose for the other mystical symbols and hieroglyphs on the Gametasia® Cards will be revealed in additional Gametasia games to be released in Spring of 2016.

Risks and challenges

The publication of a card game can be a challenging process. We are proud to say that we have done our research of card production and manufacturing to ensure the successful fulfillment of our Gametasia Kickstarter campaign―Gametasia® Cards.
To reduce the likelihood of any delay-causing mistakes, we have tested the production and manufacturing process with prototype card decks; specifically, two test decks over a two-year period. This was accomplished after months of pre-production play testing and working with our artist on the color illustrations based on the story-world characters of Millennium.
Our promise is to communicate with our backers throughout the KickStarter process. It is important that we be transparent and let everyone know how the Gametasia® Card project is proceeding every step of the way. Backers will receive constant updates and on-line posts of our final artwork as each card's illustration is completed.
We believe the entire experience will be a positive one for us, our production team, and our Backers. Our deepest thanks to our all our generous Backers who have put their trust in us. Together, we will bring Gametasia® Cards to the world of gaming.
