About

How does Guardians differ from other Dice Building Games? 

  • No fielding of units. Think of your Characters, Items and Spells as tools to use when attacking threats, not units, to deploy. Once they are used, they cycle back through your bag.
  • No health dice health/toughness. Our dice do not need Health or Toughness, as the overall Health is tracked by the city and Guild for which they belong to!
  • Fully Cooperative. Instead of going head-to-head against each other, the Guilds of Wayword work together to hold off an army of horrific villains! Though the game may also be played with an overall winner based on points too.

Gain the following rewards with any Guardian Pledge or higher.

Insert Example shown in Update #3.

Don't forget, you also get the following Exclusive Promo Events and Loadout Card + Dice!

 With the Guardians Pledge Level you can get this Expansion.

The Snow White's Battalion adds more cards, creating new combinations for your loadout, as well as giving players enough cards and dice to support a 5th player! Please note, this includes the 10 additional starter dice for a 5th player, but the core game comes with 5 Guild Boards and Guild Bags.

When Pledging to Guardians of Wayword, there will be no shipping cost during the campaign, but rather after via our pledge manager. While we are providing estimates below as to how much we will be charging for shipping, understand that with 185 custom dice in the game, the weight is vast, and may be even more if we add Stretch Goals to the game. Here are the cost estimates post campaign for you.

Each and every backer is incredibly important to KLTG (location be damned!), so to offset the cost, we have included a small discount on all shipping, but no shipping is free, so stick with us and we promise the product is worth the price!

Guardians of Wayword includes Customs Friendly delivery to the USA, Canada, the United Kingdom, the European Union, New Zealand and Australia. If you live in these countries and incur any additional charges because of us, email us at kidlovestigergames@gmail.com with your customs receipt, and our team will  reimburse your receipt via PayPal sans fees! We love you that much!

Risks and challenges

Any product manufactured anywhere can have some production, shipping or custom delays on either end (though companies that don't use Kickstarter rarely show them). The posted/"estimated" delivery date for Guardians is a goal more than a concrete timeline, and is indicative of USA/Canada Backers specifically, as we have less control over non-North American Countries delivery. The nature of shipping and fulfillment processes is unpredictable at times, and some areas of the world likely will receive their rewards before others. We hope that by being open and honest about it during the process, we can all remain patient with each other and get a great game made, into the world and on your tables.

We are happy to refund any pledge within the 14 day post campaign window. We believe that since 100% of the core game content (minus the rulebook) is done, we should be on track to deliver a great game to you without issue (any stretch goals unlocked may alter that to some extent). Currently we are shipping out Tabula Rasa (or started for our island friends!) through 2nd and 3rd parties and are in the middle of production on our last game, Alphas: Volume 1, and it is on track to deliver on time. While we had delays with Tabula Rasa, we were transparent with those delays as they came up. We will seek to improve our process but be as/more transparent with each project.

Thank you for your time, your consideration, and if you are backing this project or any KLTG Project, we hope you enjoy the game and the campaign! From all of us at Kid Loves Tiger Games, thank you kindly.
