Almost There! Heading to Press!

Posted by Jason Robinette (Creator)

We are heading to press in less than a week, and we wanted to share the latest product images with you:

They are now available for Pre-Order in our Online Store!  Tell your friends!  
Don't worry, your backer fulfillment emails are still in progress, look to receive them by next Friday (June 24th) at the latest!

Deck Contents, and What Packs?

We had to make some hard decisions in the last few weeks, and one of them had to do with the 9-card packs that we wanted to print and sell.   Unfortunately, the cost to produce these packs was just too high for what we would get out of them (we just didn't see the need for such high volumes) so we decided to cut them from our print run. In order to make the decks more varied and engaging, we took those 18 cards and incorporated them into the decks, offering a richer gameplay experience.

Now, we know that we did offer many of our backers a free pack... and in place of that pack, we are giving each of you 2 of the laser-cut Rage tokens!  Rage in style!

"But wait," you say, "I wanted cards!"

We've got you covered! We're developing a special Gladiator promo pack, printing in late July, which we will provide to each of you in place of the other pack... so you're still getting a free card pack AND a pair of beautiful Rage tokens!

As you can see, we've been saving the best for last... and there's still more to come!

Deck Lists

We've posted the final* deck lists, check them out!
We will be posting preview images of the cards in the coming weeks on this page, so you'll get a chance to see every card appear on this page.

*we might make a small tweak here or there over the next few days!


We've been talking with distributors like Alliance Games and they are going to be carrying Ophidian 2360: Survival of the Fittest... exciting news!

Thanks for sticking with us, we're almost there!
If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to get in touch with us.

      Hi Michael!

      In that case, you will receive a refund equal to the amount you pledged for the bonus packs.

      When we send out your backer email to fulfill your pledge, you'll have a certain amount of credit in our store. If you decide not to use any of it because of the lack of bonus packs, we'll refund you the difference after you check out.

      Just to clarify I pledged enough money to have 3 of each bonus pack. so that would be 6 of the bonus packs in all. So does that mean 12 laser cut tokens and 6 of the same gladiator pack?

    3. Michael on

      Ok so if we ordered multiple of the bonus packs? I pledged $67 to make sure i got an entire play set of each of the bonus pack cards. Are we getting the gladiator pack for each pack we ordered and 2 laser cut tokens?
