Albion's Legacy - 2nd Edition

CA$ 46,492

NOTE: This campaign funds in Canadian Dollars! (CAD)

Albion's Legacy is a a fully cooperative modular-adventure game for 1-4 players (expandable to 6).

In Albion's Legacy, King Arthur and his allies explore Albion in search of specific Realms, while trying to collect enough Quest Coins to win the game! As the Realms are explored, various Enemies will stand in the way, and must be Challenged by rolling the Stones of Chance! Meanwhile, Despair threatens the land! If the Flames of Hope are extinguished, or all Virtue is lost, the kingdom falls! It's up to you to triumph against overwhelming odds!

Albion's Legacy was successfully funded on June 15, 2014, and has been fulfilled! Albion's Legacy was our first game, and following fulfillment, we've continued to pour our hearts and souls into it. We've improved the game in almost every way, and now we are happy to announce that Albion's Legacy 2nd Edition is ready for manufacturing! We will be manufacturing this version of the game, one way or another, and this Kickstarter is our way of going bigger and better. With your help, we can do a larger print run of the 2nd edition, and bring Albion's Legacy to a wider audience.

First Edition Game Components
First Edition Game Components

For Albion's Legacy 2nd Edition, we've changed manufacturers, and upgraded the quality of every component. A few major upgrades include higher quality punch boards, bigger quest coins, and etched dice! We've gone down to a smaller box size, and added a vacuum-formed tray to hold all of the components steady!

Here's a video showing components fitting into the new white box and special vacuum formed tray.

We've re-balanced some key areas of the game, and added the enemy stats to the backs of their tokens so that they can be more easily checked while you play. We've tweaked card text, and fixed typos, and just made the game better all around. We've also worked with our amazing community over on Boardgamegeek to pour through the rulebook, cover to cover, expanding and clarifying everything! You can download the new and improved rulebook here:

We are releasing a limited number of Deluxe boxes that will include the 5 expansions that we developed for our initial Kickstarter Campaign. Each of these 5 expansions will be made available individually for retail over the next 2 years. This is your chance to get all of the expansion content at once, instead of waiting for the expansions to be released 1 at a time. The extra content available in the Deluxe version includes:

  • +19 Playable Characters
  • +10 Story Quests
  • +224 Playing Cards
  • +6 Quest Coins
  • New double-sided Playing Board (Avalon)
  • Rules for Up to 6 Players

Since we are not doing a full production run of expansion content, we are only making 75 Deluxe copies of the game available. These have more than twice as much content as the core game, so get one before they run out!

We've seen the demand for more content, and we're going to answer your call! Introducing the Old Kings Expansion!

Corruption is spreading through the land, and sapping the strength of Arthur and his allies. As the Realms of Albion erupt in chaos, and flash-fires and floods throw the Knights of the Round Table into disarray, a new set of heroes emerge from an age long past... Uther Pendragon and his allies march to Arthur's aid, and raise their swords against the perils that threaten Albion in this brand new expansion...

This Expansion includes:

  • 3 Characters (Includes: King Uther Pendragon, King Leondegrance and King Uriens)
  • 3 All New Story Quests
  • 20 Disaster Cards
  • 2 Corruption Tokens
  • 2 Despair Tokens
  • 4 Wound Tokens
  • 2 Flood Tokens
  • 2 Wildfire Tokens
  • 2 Mystic Rune Tokens
  • 4 Companion Tokens

Albion's Legacy, and the expansions included in the Deluxe version don't have any cards that are drawn during the Key-Turn, or tokens that effect multiple Realm Tiles. The cards added in this expansion are drawn each Key-Turn and add new tokens to the play area. The Wildfire tokens, and Flood Tokens make traveling through the Realms of Albion an even more harrowing ordeal, and the Corruption Tokens deal damage to characters on all surrounding Realm Tiles. If you are especially daring, you can cleanse the corrupted Realms, and construct new Flames of Hope, increasing the length of the game!

Arthur and his allies have explored the Realms and saved Albion countless times. Now, new lands emerge from the mist, Outerworld Keeps, and the Lost Bastion… These ancient structures act as a refuge for Arthur and his allies, a much needed refuge in these troubled times… As Arthur and his allies explore the lands, they are attacked by more organized enemies intent on stealing their inventory, and hindering their efforts; brigands of all types stand in their way.

None of the previous content for Albion’s Legacy includes new boards for the heroes to explore. This expansion introduces 3 new side-boards: The 2 Outerworld Keeps are new, magical castles that can only be accessed through Warp Tiles, and the Lost Bastion is a new castle that can be connected to a Realm Tile far from Camelot, creating a refuge for the heroes.

This expansion also adds a series of Disaster Cards that turn core enemies into brigands that relentlessly hunt the players and force them to discard their Inventory Cards. These brigands can be challenged like normal enemies, but have to be dealt with before the Key-Turn to prevent them from stealing the players’ gear!

  • 4 Characters (Includes: Sir Eric, Lady Enide, The 400 year old King, Evelake and The Bard, Taliesin)
  • 1 All New Story Quest
  • 12 Disaster Cards

Earlier this year, we excitedly announced our partnership with Jasco Games, the company behind Megaman: The Board Game. Over the next year, we are going to be working as a design studio for Jasco on several large titles, including Street Fighter: The Board Game.

While we work as Jasco's new design studio, they will be taking over as our publisher, and distributor. Once Albion's Legacy 2nd Edition is manufactured, Jasco will be handling fulfillment, and helping us distribute Albion's Legacy to a wider audience than ever!

For more information on Jasco, check out their website:

http://jascogames.com/

Jasco has also connected us with Liya International, the manufacturer behind Megaman: The Board Game. We've seen samples of their work, and are very impressed with what they can do. Liya has taken over manufacturing of Albion's Legacy, and are ready to go at full speed!

You can check out Liya International's website here:

Shipping will be charged after the campaign, based on the actual cost to ship your pledge reward to your location. We will not charge any handling fees above the actual cost to ship your game.

Through our partnership with Jasco Games, we have arranged fulfillment options in multiple countries, significantly reducing your shipping costs. We will be shipping from locations in the United States, Canada, and the UK, saving you the cost of customs and VAT fees.

 Even if you can't back us financially, spreading the word and letting others know about this campaign is a considerable action that will help us to succeed! Thank you so much for sharing or promoting us!

Without our amazing backers, we wouldn't be where we are today. Thank you for supporting us up to this point, and thank you for joining us on this campaign.

Risks and challenges

As with all Kickstarter projects, there needs to be a degree of trust and understanding. Before our first Kickstarter, we diligently sought advice from many successful campaign proprietors and, since then, we have learned a lot from running Kickstarters of our own. We can't thank our backers enough for the support that they have given us along the way, and we are excited to handle any challenges that come up during this campaign.

This is a short campaign, and we are happy to answer any of your questions about how we plan to execute such an endeavor. To make this campaign as successful as possible, we are promoting it through every avenue available to us. Anything you can do to spread the word will help immensely.

We hope that you will understand that our pledge to you is that every backer and future consumer / player of the game receives the highest quality of manufactured product. For many of you, this is your first introduction to us, and we want it to be a satisfying and safe experience.

The game is ready to be manufactured, and once this campaign is complete, we will be working with the manufacturer to deliver it to you as soon as possible. We hope to ship the game in December.
