About

Work in progress

The title of king was not simply inherited in the Viking age, you have to fight for it. Enter the Viking age and use the armies of four magnates and chieftains to brawl for the Herrlof: a sign of victory and praise gained in war. Through trick taking and special abilities, you will seek to win just the right amount of power to become the Viking king.

The game consists of rounds, with each round built up of five steps. Each of these steps are set out below.

Herrlof is the third game by Jolly Dutch,  the first being Chartered: The Golden Age and the second Boogie Beasts. We would of course like to offer you the option to pledge for a bundle of all three games combined. That way you save on the recommended retail price and on shipping for all three games. Note that this option is limited as the end of the first print run for both Chartered: The Golden Age and Boogie Beasts is in sight! 

It is possible for retailers to pre-order Herrlof, simply pledge € 1 and send us an email on info@jollydutch.com. For European retailers a VAT number is required. Retailers that pre-order during the campaign will receive the game at the same time as backers. 

Jolly Dutch Productions is a new small game publisher, set up by Alexander and Arnold in the Netherlands. We combine our love for (board) gaming and entrepreneurial spirit to develop new games, specifically looking to bring together families and friends for a jolly evening. We ran our first Kickstarter in October-November 2018: Chartered: The Golden Age, which has been fulfilled.

Inge is the co-author of Herrlof. She grew up disliking board games, having only played Monopoly and always ending the game in an argument. After she was introduced to 'real' board games by her husband, she quickly started to enjoy them and surpassed him in wanting to play. 

Tristam has created all the artwork for Herrlof and the Kickstarter page. He is an independent board game artist and has worked on a number of Kickstarter games. 

Risks and challenges

We have learnt a lot from our previous Kickstarters (succesful and cancelled) and have implemented those leassons in this campaign.

The artwork and all game elements are ready for production, allowing quick confirmation of the production order and ensuring a smooth start of the production timeline. Additionally, the selected producer has been involved in the process from the start, to ensure all production standards are followed.

Note that refunds after the campaign ends are possible, but this will be minus the Kickstarter and payment fees. Note that for this campaign we will not work with a pledge manager. Note that any backers that fail to complete the information forms concerning shipping addresses ahead of the deadline communicated after the campaign, will be contacted via email twice to allow them to complete the forms. If they still fail to do so, their pledge might not be shipped with the bigger bulk and therefore result in additional shipping costs that will be charged to the backer.
