An award-winning solitaire card game. A challenging puzzle. An adventure. A work of art.
Crystallo is a beautiful and unique card game for one player that combines familiar mechanisms like set collection, pattern recognition, and tile placement into something fresh and new. It's perfect for anyone 8 and up, especially those who enjoy simple to learn, yet challenging puzzles. It sets up in seconds and plays in about 20-30 minutes.
- Shipping for the KNIGHT tier (one copy of the game) is $2 for US backers and $6 for international.
- Want two copies? Just add $15 to your pledge!
- The VANQUISHER Print-And-Play rewards are included in both the KNIGHT and CHAMPION tiers.
- Shipping on the CHAMPION tier is free!
- RETAILERS: We'd love for you to carry Crystallo! Just send us a message through Kickstarter or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
All the components for Crystallo fit cozily in a luxurious velvet bag. It’s so easy to toss in a purse or backpack, and so touchably soft! It begs to be picked up, held, and taken on all your adventures!
Here’s what you’ll find inside:
In the interests of keeping this game small, light, portable, and delivered on time, we won't be doing a TON of crazy stretch goals. (Sorry, no life-sized marble statues of the creatures :/) But we've got some *great* stuff planned that we think you'll love! For now:

We want to see your creativity!
For each social quest completed, we will include a Kickstarter-exclusive bonus card featuring a fan art version of that creature, in every KS copy of the game. We’ll also make then available to backers at the PNP level! To submit a fan art version, simply share your creative interpretation of any of the creatures on Instagram, with the hashtag #crystallogame. Submissions will be open until the campaign ends, and will be voted on by backers to select the winners.
(Note: We will add the orbs and name of the creature along with an artist credit when we finalize the card design, so don’t worry about adding those— we just want to see the art! But be sure to leave some room at the top and bottom of your submitted artwork to accommodate those if you don't want your artwork getting covered up!)
- All ages welcome to submit artwork!
- Use any medium you like; paint, pen & ink, colored pencil, collage, digital, etc.
- Be sure to tag your post with #crystallogame so we can find it!
We will add checkmarks to the quests as they are completed, and we will share some of our favorite submissions during the campaign, in our updates. Can't wait to see what you come up with!
Light Heart Games is... well, me! I‘m the game designer, illustrator, graphic designer, rulebook author and primary playtester. I’ve been a photographer for the last decade, and I’ve done some form of art or another for basically my entire life, but this is my first game. I don’t think I’ve ever found another art form that’s as challenging and rewarding, and has such an amazing community built around it. I’m in love! I am so excited to get this game out into the world and into more hands.
Light Heart Games is also my wonderful family, my three amazing girls who have been a huge part of the process, and countless friends and other designers and publishers who have pushed me, supported me, and encouraged me! I wouldn’t be doing this without each and every one of them, and I’m so thankful.
And last but by no means least, Light Heart Games is YOU, the backers. Without you, Crystallo is just a dream. With you, it can become a reality! I’m so looking forward to getting to know some of you this month, and I already appreciate each and every one of you! Thank you so much for your support.

Risks and challenges
All the artwork is done, Crystallo has been thoroughly playtested and enjoyed by people around the world, and we have excellent partnerships in place for all the manufacturing and fulfillment logistics!
About the only thing that could really trip us up would be a dragon messing with our shipment, but thankfully we’ve got a lot of experience dealing with dragons.
Thank you for your interest and support for this adventure. We’re ready! Let’s do this!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
