About

A sudden wind blows through the entrance of Kofre’s temple as you brush dust off the ancient scrolls you just came across. Suddenly the flames of the torches go out and you hear a straining, stoney voice hiss through the halls, “To those that have desecrated my tomb in search of treasure…prepare to meet an eternal suffering…”

Kofre’s Curse is a treasure hunting game where you and your friends work cooperatively to excavate a pyramid. The pyramid contains 25 chambers that either contain traps, treasures or monsters. Each character in the game has unique skills that allow them to pass through some trials without much struggle while having to exert themselves in other areas. Unique skills include Strength, Sanity, Speed and Sanity. Use your muscles to plow through leagues of mummies! Use magic to break curses and go head to head with magical foes!

Plays 15 - 20 Minutes                  2-6 Players                  Ages 6+

The front and back of the box

The front and back of the box comprise Kofre's sarcophagus.  Sliding it open will reveal the punch sheets with the room tiles along with all the other contents of the game.

Kofre was an Egyptian sorcerer that messed with dark magics and accidentally took on the essences of the gods and goddesses Nekhbet, Bast, Sobek and Serget. After much effort he was imprisoned within a pyramid and he remained silent for hundreds of years until recently when his howls and screams once again rang from within the tomb.

Driven by curiosity and promise of shiny things, you and your friends decided to enter the sandy edifice and were immediately presented with challenges.

 In Kofre’s Curse you build a pyramid using chamber tiles you as you see in the picture's below. Every player starts in the entrance and on each person’s turn they draw a tile and complete the task on the tile. When the 25 tiles are laid down a boss will emerge from the tomb and all the players will work cooperatively to beat him or her. Players will win and take the treasure home or forever lay buried within the tomb!

Short Character Bios:

Rami: I'm not saying he stole your bag but it sure looks familiar. His nose squeaks when he laughs.

Bast: Wasn't always a cat, but for whatever reason he woke up looking like one. Brings people mummy arms they didn't ask for.

Nguyen: She's a little young to be exploring pyramids, but then again, most things in pyramids are very old.

Dr Miller: She's read all the books and doesn't believe in ghosts. She enjoys looking through rare items and employing the scientific technique of licking things.

Eshe: She can do magic. She's not sure why, but she does know that it's awesome. Calculus instructor by day, highly powered sorceress by night. She can do both kinds of magic!

Hajib: He inspires confidence in others with his awesome sword play and finely trimmed beard. Once fought a honey badger and lived to tell the tale.

How the game will be developed:

Currently the game has been prototyped with LongPack Games in China. We have the initial prototype finished as you see in the pictures above and are ready to start printing copies at LongPack at a moment's notice! LongPack Games has had a great reputation of dependability throughout the two games that we've printed through them and we are sure that they can deliver good quality.

After funding happens we will be partnering with CrowdOx to helps us carry out the fulfillment side of things.

Shipping:

We are currently negotiating with several shipping companies to handle the end logistics. At this time we expect a single copy shipped within the US to have no more than a $5 shipping cost. More updates on this will be posted here throughout the campaign!

On to the stretch goals! 

"A fun, unique and imaginative game. High replayability. Every time you play is a little different and the characters add an adaptive twist." -Bryan J.

That was super fun! Even though I lost. -Amarilis A.

"Amazing! This game was fun to play. I like how the suspense makes it that much more fun." -Dylan C. and Chris B.

"Fun, fast, exciting game of dice and strategy." -Dallin P.

Binary Cocoa has three integral members. Braxton and Joseph are coders who make things happen through the power of Math. Stephen does the art and music. Together they formed Binary Cocoa while in Idaho and have been going strong ever since. Currently the team is split between Idaho and Arizona, so Stephen and his wife Kyrie put together Kofre's Curse. Some of Binary Cocoa's other games include Frog Chess, Collider, Wet Blanket, BOCO and Hexapod Defense Force. They can be found at binarycocoa.com.

Risks and challenges

With every board game there are unprecedented problems of being able to meet expectations or experience unexpected delays from factories and such. We've produced almost all of our inventory from LongPack Games in China and up to the date they've always delivered on time. The only thing we could think of would be an unexpected delay, which won't prevent the release of the game but might cause it to be get to backers a month or two late. We hope this will not happen!
