Game Duration: 45 min.
Siegfried, Snow White, D' Artagnan, Red Riding Hood, and the other heroes of the 12 realms are being reunited for one last great adventure. The Dark Lords have joined forces to completely conquer and subjugate all the known Lands, and only the combined efforts of all the greatest heroes can halt their nefarious plan.
All players must band together to stop the Dark Lords' overwhelming hordes from pillaging the 12 Realms. Individual invaders can be defeated by using each hero's different talents, but to vanquish the Dark Lords you must claim a powerful artifact. In their quest to stop the invasion, the Heroes can travel together between different lands, or they can try to single-handedly defend a Realm. Each of the 12 Realms is an individual land, with different treasures and events, and populated by unique creatures.

Risks and challenges
12 Realms is our 4th game we try to deliver to the people, to you. Before that we had another successful campaign with Wrong Chemistry. Last year we had published Eragra: The First Step & Strike Dice. We already work on this project around a year while the designer of the game Ignazio Corrao was developing it around 2 years. All of us have worked very hard for it and we honestly believe that it can be a great hit. A game with Miniatures cannot be made so easily. We have to create the 3D models, and then these models will be mastered in order to create the necessary molds, confirm the samples and then move to a normal production. Yet there are many things we have to work for like: finishing the art, developing the final files, create molds for more material, arrange packaging, shipping and much much more. And for all this procedure we need a lot, lot support.
We have a co-operation with two great manufacturers who are experienced and will produce the game and the Miniatures for us. If we succeed all of our Goals, then we will work finally with 6 different manufacturers, for Molds, Miniatures, Special Dice, Spinner Rings, Game, Custom Plastic Pieces and we believe we will do it just great. Of course we need your support to make it happen. You and only you have this power. So far we have shipped a lot of games around the world, and each time we work harder and harder to improve our services and be better.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
