Bonus Stretch Reward Cards! - As an added bonus we have decided to add mini stretch rewards during the final week of the campaign! At every $1500 interval after $20,000 we will add 1 special bonus card to every copy of the game! These cards are added on top of whatever other stretch rewards we hit! Cards include such characters as the Alchemist, Miner, Scavenger, and of course RATS! Enjoy!

Bonus Stretch Reward Cards!

$21,500 - Alchemist Unlocked!

$23,000 - Woodsman

$24,500 - Miner

$26,000 - Scavenger

$27,500 - Architect

$29,000 - Rats!

25k Stretch Reward Sneak Peek! When we hit 25k the Gardens Mini Expansion will be added to every copy of Tasnia!

30k Stretch Reward - When we reach 30k we will upgrade all the cards to a linen finish and we will add the Vagrant Card, 1 gold resource card, and 2 silver resource cards! Those backers with the "Enhance Pack" will receive the black peeple pawn!

Tasnia is a resource gathering game that also employs tile laying. Players draw resource cards to form a hand of 6 cards and then they spend these resources (Wood, Stone, Iron, Laborer, Carpenter, Mason, Silver and Gold) to purchase portions of a building. These portions come in the form of tiles that can be used to construct medieval buildings. Players compete to build the biggest and best buildings using these tiles. Players then score points based on the buildings they have created and the player with the highest score wins! In addition there are special cards like the Baron, the Hero, the Scoundrels, and the Merchant that allow players to manipulate the rules to their advantage and to hinder other players from winning.

Tasnia is a game designed for 2-4 players and takes about an hour. It is recommended for people 8 years old or older, however I have played it with 6 year old children with very few issues.

The idea for the game came from playing with castle blocks with my 3 year old son. Like most game designers I am always in a state of looking for new ideas or expanding on old ones. While constructing my medieval village with my son I considered the idea of each block costing a certain number of resources. From there the idea grew and I settled on the use of laying tiles and of using cards for the resources. Many hours of play-testing honed Tasnia into a wonderful mix of strategy, luck, and of course building blocks. My kids spend a lot of time simply building houses and castles with the tiles alone and this is a testament to the core mechanics. 

Tasnia makes a great game to play with all ages and is suited well for people new to gaming and hardcore gamers alike. The idea of building things with blocks strikes a cord with most and draws us all back to our childhood. So let's build this game together!

All prototypes for Tasnia where produced by The Game Crafter and I strongly recommend their fantastic service!

Take a moment and check out the rules: Tasnia Rules

Enhance Pack! - Add $5 to any pledge level of $30 or more and you will receive Peeples and Acrylic Gems! The peeples are used in place of the Princess, Baron, Hero, and Merchant cards. You can place them in their homes instead of the card. The acrylic gems are used in place of the wooden disc in the Dukes and Dames expansion. These will be included once we hit 20k and additional peeples will be added as we hit other stretch goals! These items are not essential to play, but are meant to enhance your copy!

Tile Magnets! - These magnets are fantastic in quality. They are actually 2" x 2" metal button magnets and are a welcome addition to any fridge! Your kids will love building castles and houses on your fridge and I am sure you will catch yourself doing the same...

Roll-up Game Mat - This fantastic roll-up game mat measures 10" x 15" and is 1/8 inch thick! It's face is a flexible cloth material with a vibrant illustration and the back is a durable rubber material that ensures the mat will not slip.

Tasnia - Add $30 to any pledge level of $30 or more and you can add an additional copy of Tasnia to your pledge!

Plague the Card Game - Plague is a wonderful trick taking game with many unique features. It has received high praise from The Gamer's Table, Fathergeek, The Dicetower Review, and has even been featured in Games Magazine! 

Zogar's Gaze - Zogar's Gaze is a retro fantasy themed press-your-luck card and dice game. Your copy will come will all the extras from our very successful Kickstarter campaign!

I am very happy to be able to offer up some really fantastic pledge levels. Take a moment and read through the many different pledge levels and find one that works for you!

$5 The Hut - Are you the crafty type? If you simply want access to the high resolution files and an opportunity to create your own copy of the game, then this pledge level is for you. You also will have your name listed as a supporter on our website.

$35 The Row House - If you are after a physical copy of the game and all the stretch rewards to come, then this is the pledge level for you. You will also gain access to the Print and Play files and your name will also be listed on our website as a supporter.

$50 The Manor - Pledge at this level and receive everything from the previous pledge level and also gain the fantastic roll-up game mat! This mat is 1/8" thick and backed with rubber so it will not slide. The face of the mat is a flexible and vibrant material.

$55 The Plague Inn - Pledge at this level and you will receive a copy of Tasnia and a copy of Plague Deluxe! You will also gain access to the Print and Play files and have your name listed on our website as a supporter. Plague Deluxe comes with everything below in the picture.

 $60 The Twin Pack - Do you and a friend want to pledge together and save some money? Maybe you want an extra copy for a gift. In any case, this is the pledge level for you. You get 2 copies of Tasnia as well as access to the Print and Play files! You will also have your name listed on the website as a supporter. 

$60 Zogar's Tower - Did you miss out on the Zogar's Gaze campaign and want a chance to snag up a copy? If so this is the pledge level for you. You will get 1 copy of Tasnia and 1 copy of Zogar's Gaze! You will also get the Print and Play files and have your name listed on our website as a supporter. Copies of Zogar's Gaze come with all stretch goals from the original Kickstarter campaign!

$85 Zogar's Plague - Want a chance at owning all 3 of our games? Then this pledge level was designed with you in mind. You get 1 copy of Tasnia, 1 copy of Zogar's Gaze, and 1 copy of Plague Deluxe! You will also get the Print and Play files and have your name listed on the site as a supporter.

$125 The Market - This pledge level is designed for anyone who wants to buy in bulk and save! Maybe you own a shop or perhaps you and your friends want to go in on this together to save some money. Either way this pledge level has you covered. You also gain access to the Print and Play files and you get to have your name name listed on our site as a supporter.

$150 The Castle - Perhaps you want it all and then some! Pledge at this level and you will get:

  • 1 signed copy of Tasnia!
  • 1 10" x 15" Roll-up Game Mat!
  • 10 square magnet tiles (2"x 2"). Now you can build Inns, Towers, and castles on your refrigerator with these high quality magnets! These magnets are made by the same place that did our Buttons for Zogar's Gaze, so the quality is top notch!
  • 1 Metal Print (8"x 10") of the cover art! The metal prints we did for Plague and Zogar's Gaze are fantastic! These 1mm thick metal prints are both durable and vibrant. 
  • Have your name listed in the instruction booklet as a supporter!
  • Access to the Print and Play files and have your name listed on our website as a project supporter!

$200 Master Merchant - With this pledge level you will receive 5 copies of Tasnia, 5 Roll-up Game Mats, and 5 Enhance Packs! So get together with some friends and save some cash! This is also a great level for retailers!

Stretch goals are our way of saying thanks for your support! When we over-fund, we are able to create more copies of the game. When this occurs, the price per copy drops and this saves us money. It is only right to pass these saving on to you, the backer! We do this by adding additional rewards!

15,000 - When we hit this stretch goal we will add the Money Lender to the resource deck! If you play the Money Lender on your turn during the gather phase you can draw an additional 3 cards! In addition, all cards will be upgraded to 300 gsm cardstock!

20,000 - When we hit this stretch goal we will add the Dukes & Dames Mini Expansion. This add-on includes 4 double-sided player cards and 4 colored wooden discs. One side of the card contains scoring info and the other depicts a character and has a place for the player's stockpile! The discs are used by players to put claims on tiles they can not afford during their turn. The disc forces other players to pay a bit more for that tile if they want it. Players can therefore use these discs to try and save a tile until their turn comes around again, or to make another player pay more for a tile they need!

Risks and challenges

Tasnia will be our third campaign and I feel like we have a good handle on production. We like to have our games near complete before launching a campaign as it allows us to speed up the process. With this being said, we fully understand that sometimes things go wrong. We try and do everything on our end to keep things on track.

Our first game Plague shipped the month we said it would and our latest campaign for Zogar's Gaze is on track for May shipment. If an issue does come up I am very quick to inform backers. As you can see for yourself, I am a great communicator with backers. I post frequent updates and I love sharing photos and videos of the production process.

Thanks again for your support!
