About

The last battle against the forces of darkness will be one that you won’t come back from. Being one of the mightiest warriors in the land it is time to prove your worth the only way you know how, in brutal bloody combat. In the frenzy of battle you will receive mortal blows but death can wait until after the battle. It is time to prove that you are the mightiest warrior that the world has ever seen; punch and cleave your way through the enemy forces and earn your mark in history.

Eternal Glory is a game for 2 to 4 players, in which players compete to be the first to reach one-hundred kills in battle. Along the way the warriors will break their weapons, face formidable foes and even receive mortal injuries. Through the use of the cards in their hand they can punch, cleave and even come back from death. 

Players draw a card to their hand, play or discard. They must lay cards in order to increase their kill count and play axes to be able to perform weapon attacks. Players may place Formidable Foes, Break Weapon and Mortal Wound cards on rival players to hinder their progress and then use your Warp Spasm to come back from death or a Furious Assault to defeat larger foes in one all out attack. 

The first player to reach or surpass the kill count goal ends the battle and will be written into the history books, while others succumb to the reaper knowing that their names will be forgotten in time.

"Simple, yet robust mechanics with an appropriate dose of negative interaction, superb performance and graphics, very fast learning principles, splendid theme..." 8/10 - Kostkarnia   

"Exciting and rewarding... It’s a simple game with and impressive approach at a chibi warrior, Take That, and Hand Management Card game." - Joseph Nicholas Indie Tabletop

"A simple, fun game, good for all ages." - Keith Hornsblow (Owner of Marquee Models)

"Eternal Glory is so cute... but cut-throat!" - Marisa Saunders Tabletopstop

We have blind tested Eternal Glory with a variety of age groups and abilities, taking it into schools and local board game nights, as well as passed it around to people we know and let them play it in their own circles.

The game has been tweaked and improved over the course of the year. It has been a long journey but now Eternal Glory is ready for your gaming tables.

Eternal Glory is a simple game to pick up but a greater depth comes with more plays. Hand management and timing are key elements to victory.

To play the game, shuffle the deck and deal five cards to each player. Place the remainder of the deck face down within reach of all players to form a draw pile. If using a score track place all players pieces on the 0 starting space. The player to have last seen a fantasy film or read a fantasy book goes first (If a game has been played prior to this the loser of the last game goes first).  

Turn Sequence:

Play a card or discard two cards from your hand.

Resolve the card’s effects if played.

Draw back up to five cards.

The player on the left now takes their turn.

Victory Conditions:

Once one player has defeated over 100 foes the round continues until it reaches the starting player. The game is then over and the player with the highest score is the winner. They are recorded in the history books as the greatest hero of your time.

 Attack cards are generally played to defeat enemies. The Defeat cost allows you to destroy that many enemies through sheer force. If you have an Axe in front of you then you may slay that amount of enemies. Every attack card is useful and each has a special additional ability.

Swift Manoeuvre: This is a special attack card which does not defeat any enemies when it is played. Instead it can be played at any time to cancel another player's card play, sending that card to the discard pile with no effect.

Items in the base game consist of Axe cards. When this card is played it is placed directly in front of you. There are four different Axes in the game, each with unique abilities.  

Hazard Cards come in two varieties- Death and Boss Cards. They are played onto another player to try and hinder their progress.

The original 53 card decks were printed on standard premium playing card paper. These Kickstarter editions are going to be printed on linen card stock, which are very durable and hard wearing.

Once we hit our goal we will introduce the next 19 cards. With more goals met we can pay for more artwork and make Eternal Glory even more epic.  

These will include:

AI characters controlled by the game.

Player characters with unique abilities.

Standees of the little cute chibi warriors to use on the score track.

Risks and challenges

Eternal Glory is ready to go to print. We have play-tested the game thoroughly over a long period and have received great feedback about it. We have had prototypes and demo decks printed by a reliable and popular playing card manufacturing company and we are extremely happy with the quality.

As with any Kickstarter project there will be always be the chance of delays, but as well as having the core deck complete we have a great team behind us and we will keep our backers in the loop through updates and emails. The estimated delivery date is early next year so that gives us plenty of time to fulfil the extra rewards.

Thank you so much for your support!
