Rules PDF and Playthrough Videos

 Please review our very rough PDF of the rules of play.

If you wish to watch our playthrough videos, please click HERE for part 1 and HERE for part 2.

 We're keeping it as simple as possible for you. This game is already developed mechanically and all assets are currently being commissioned.  This campaign is designed to help us manufacture the game itself and the miniatures that go with it! Please review some of the graphics below to help you better understand what comes with Sherwood's Legacy!

As a side note, everyone who backs at A MERRY ALLY level and above will receive a PRINT & PLAY of the game before we put the game into manufacturing.

All prices below are in (CAD) Canadian Dollars.

 We had too much good content to stop at a core game.  So we've added one Kickstarter exclusive expansion set called "Highway Robbery" complete with new mini boss and new mini...ature.

This turns the CORE game into a DELUXE game. 

 Since Sherwood's Legacy is our spiritual successor to Albion's Legacy, our Arthurian themed, adventure game, we thought it best to include it as part of our pledge rewards.  From our recent campaign, we have a rare stock of our Kickstarter DELUXE copy of the game.  This copy comes with all Kickstarter stretch goal content. While it is not the same deal that our initial Albion's backers received, we have still managed to create a deal especially for you.  Check out our Boardgamegeek page HERE!

There are a lot of people discovering us for the first time and we would like to continue offering Albion's Legacy bundles, we are opening up a new pledge level which includes a copy of Sherwood's Legacy CORE game and the Highway Robbery Expansion pack along with the retail (CORE) version of Albion's Legacy. The retail version of Albion's Legacy will be available in stores over the next year but this is the best way to get Albion's sooner as there will be a shipping option in the backerkit to have your copy shipped shortly after this campaign ends.

Collectable 32mm Metal Miniature Upgrade

All of these mini's will be ready before the game goes out and will ship with the game. Any stretch goal reached during this campaign will release new characters to the game. If you've upgraded your mini's from plastic to metal, we will add the unlocked characters to your pledge for free. Note*** You will ALSO get all your plastic mini's. The metal mini's are a collectors item, similar to Albion's Legacy.

  • If you want the CORE 6 characters (Robyn Hood, Friar Tuck, Marian, Ivanhoe, Rowena, Little John) plus the Sheriff of Nottingham and Sir Guy (from the Highway Robbery expansion set) as 32mm metal collectable mini's, please add $45 to your pledge.
  • If you want the entire 37 miniature collection as 32mm metal collectable mini's, (core 6, the Sheriff, 10 bowmen, 10 foot soliders, 6 knights and 4 witches) please add $220 to your pledge.

We've managed to work some of the shipping costs into the pledge levels, however, shipping is as tricky as can be sometimes.  We humbly apologize for the costs associated. We're doing our best to lower the costs for those of you abroad. From our past experience, this is the best way to make the game available around the world.

Risks and challenges

As with all Kickstarter projects, there needs to be a degree of trust and understanding especially when dealing with product and delivery. We have been involved in other campaigns and delays were inevitable. Even though our game Albion's Legacy was delayed, our backers stood by us and we owe them a huge thank-you. Now with the game fulfilling we're ready to do it all over again. Educated, prepared, ready.

We hope that you will understand that our pledge to you is that every backer and future consumer / player of the game should receive the highest quality of manufactured product. This is our pledge to you, the backer and we're planning on making this campaign a satisfying and safe experience. We won't back down from this, even if it causes a delay. Our motto is quality and value over expediency if we are faced with the choice.

Industry standards will be met on all levels. Of course there are always monkey wrenches that may interfere with the timeline of production. These conditions will be communicated to you, the backers at every single stage from artwork bleed issues to a delay in shipping if they become prevalent.

You may contact us at any time to discuss anything you need to. We are here for you. Thank you again for your support!
