Some months ago we successfull made Historia civilization boardgame. During the campaign on Kickstarter and Giochistarter we created two mini-expansions: The Ways of Commands and Civilization goals. Now we want to take another step towards perfection and we are glad to present two new mini-expansions: Path of Destiny and Capitals!

Why join this campaign?  

  • Because here you can take the two new expansions at a great price! Retail price for both expansions will be 18.50$, here you will pay them the 40% less
  • Because here you can take also the two previous Historia expansions. 
  • Here you'll have the expansions earlier: shops will receive them only 1-2 months later. 
  • Because here you can have some special stretch-goal for your Historia game, like a new collectible wonder card
  • Because expansions increase even more the riplayability of Historia.
  • Because Historia went sold out so quickly that maybe these expansion will be sold out just as quickly.

Path of destiny

– This is madness, not heroism!  
– Not heroism you said? Not heroism, you’re right, but neither madness. For the first time, all the Greek cities are joined together to combat the greatest enemy of their history and you ask me not go to war. This is madness, I said.
– But you and entire Greece have no chance to win, Leonidas, Persians are hundreds of times more numerous than Greeks.
– This doesn’t matter, only gods know what will happen: not heroism nor madness, only our destiny. 

Path of destiny is a new mini-expansion for Historia board game that allows players to program and follow paths on the development matrix. Civilizations will grow faster or slower depending on the choices they make and how they will face the destiny. During the game, players can try to take control of the destiny of their civilization, choosing one or more destiny tiles and putting them on the development matrix. Players may move their matrix marker on a destiny tile with an arrow to follow the destiny path that will lead them to a different position on the development matrix. Players must also be careful to avoid the destiny tiles with a wall, that represent adverse fate and hinder to civilization the way to glory. Will you be able to face your Destiny and turn it to your advantage? 

Contents: 16 tokens and mini-rulebook.

Capitals

– My Lord and my King Alexander, enemies are defeated, battle won. – Very well, now the empire is even espansive. I will build a city here, I'll call it Alexandria.
– Alexandria my King? You have already built fifteen cities named Alexandria.
– Yes sure and many others I will build. A capital is enough to celebrate the glory of a great man, but many more are needed to celebrate the greatest man of all time.

Capitals is a new mini-expansion for Historia board game that allows players to build their capitals to obtain different bonuses. Players can increase the artistic value or the economic power of their cities to make their own civilization the most powerful and prestigious of all. Now players can perform Expansion action not only to place a cube in a new territory, expanding their civlization, but also to place a second cube in one of their territory to represent a massive settlement. In the second or fourth turn of each era, all civilizations with two cubes in a territory are able to build there a Capital. A Capital is the symbol of power and wealth of a civilization and remain until the end of the current or next era depending on the circumstances. Even the greatest empires sooner or later decay ... but then they can rise from theit own ashes to build a new Capital, bigger and more powerful than previous.  

Players may accumulate treasures in their capital or use their whealth to improve the growth of civilizations:  

  • facilitating the achievement of a Leader objective card requiriment
  • paying treasures as a war tribute in case of a defeat 
  • recovering used cubes 
  • taking advantage in turn order  

At the end of the game, treasures not spent contribute to the triumph of the civilization and to his prestige in the history. Contents: 7 capital tokens and 14 treasure tokens, mini-rulebook.

Which version?  

Both expansions can be used with any Historia version (multilanguage, French, English, etc.) and include:  

Historia Capitals: 7 capital tiles, 14 treausure tokens, minirulebook.
Path of Destiny: 16 tokens, minirulebook.  

Both mini-rulebooks are in Italian, English and German. 

French, Spanish backers and people from other Countries can check the giochistarter web page and join to the project there: other languages will be added to the rulebook depending on the amount collected there.

Global campaign 

This crowdfunding campaign is part of a global campaign made on two platforms (Kickstarter and Giochistarter). Kickstarter uses dollars and giochistarter uses euro. To avoid confusion we refer to Giochistarter website as “official counter” of money collected by this campaign: check this page. The stretch-goals will be unlocked consequential to the numbers show there. 

Note that Giochistarter page already shows the TOTAL amount collected by the 2 platforms converted in euro. The page is updated every 30 minutes.

Stretch-goals  

If the sum of 1500 euro (about 1600 dollars) be reached by the sum of Kickstarter and Giochistarter websites we will give for free to all participants a new wonder card: La Civetta.

La Civetta is the most famous gamebar in Rome (Italy). In that place Historia has been played for months... but not only Historia, many others boardgames like Romolo o Remo, CO2, De Vulgari Eloquentia has been tested in the Civetta gamebar! This card wants to celebrate this wonderful place and it can be used in the game as other wonder card OR, if you come in Rome, to have a free beer! (but your card will be marked).

With a sum of 6000 euro, all participants will receive a new Historia wonder card of first Era. The card type will be chosen by a poll made on Giochistarter. Poll will start the 29 April. This card is exclusive for this campaign and will not be available later in shops.

With a sum of 10000 euro, all participants will receive a new Historia wonder card of second Era. This card is exclusive for this campaign and will not be available later in shops.
