Carrot supplies are getting low and the rabbits must brave the wilds to collect enough to feed the colony! Time is short, the pathways long and the birds are circling overhead, looking for easy prey.  

Carrotia is a light co-operative, tile placement game for 1-6 players where the team collectively works together against a timer to build three different mazes of increasing size. The master rabbit needs to dash from entrance to the exit within a specific number of moves according to the current mission card, scooping up the precious carrots while avoiding the owl, hawk and other birds as they swoop low over the zones causing mayhem and mischief.  

Although the task may seem daunting, the master rabbit has some supporters, other rabbits that bring a unique special ability to assist the team and and thwart the hungry predators!  

BASE GAME COMPONENTS: - 40 tiles (70x70mm), - 3 hourglasses (30sec., 60sec., 90sec.), - 27 quest cards (70x70mm), - 6 character cards (70x70mm), - 6 bird tokens, - 30 carrot tokens, - 2 arrow tokens, - 1 wooden rabbit, - 6 custom dice, - 1 Ruleset

Important: Ignore the $25 pledge level entitled Carrotia Boxed Game. If you want to back the base game + the expansion, choose the $25 pledge level entitled: Carrotia + Carroting. That pledge level includes the correct shipping fees.

 

 

 

 

A big thank to Juegos Juguetes y Coleccionables for allowing us to use some of the photos of their file (see above).

1. You draw the top card from the Quest Cards of the first maze. 

2. Setting up the maze and then the entry and exit tokens, carrot and bird tokens.

3. Roll the dice of the birds that are in the maze in order to see where they will move. 

4. The game begins and the rabbit takes the first move and enters the maze. 

5. Then the birds are moving. If they find you or a carrot a special ability is triggered.

6. If you move to a tile with a bird on it, then nothing happens.

7. Collect as many carrots as you can in a certain amount of moves, and escape the maze on time victorious. 

A big thanks to Heimspiele for the photos :)

REVIEWS:                                                                                                  

  • Heimspiele: Overall a really nice game with some heavy characters, lucky tactics and great potential for discussions (but dont while the 30-90sec. last^^                                               
  • Gaming Bits: The game is quite simple and brings adults and kids to the game table with a sense of fun.
  • Board Game Bees: Overall, the game is fun, and I think it will work well with families. The maze building is a cool aspect, and the puzzle of moving through that maze works well.
  • As a Board Gamer: I think Carrotia is a nice family or children’s game. It has a cute theme and simple mechanism, so I think you can have good time with this carrot filled game, especially when you have kids.
  • Board Gamer Anonymous: The game is quick, easy to teach, and cute enough with the different asymmetrical powers these rabbits yield. If you’re looking for a short, accessible co-op with real time elements for your family, give Carrotia a play.
  • Balena Ludens: For adults a nice filler , for children a great tool to refine the logic.
  • Board Game Quest: The game was an enjoyable experience and something I would enjoy opening during game night because the rules in Carrotia are easy enough to teach and it’s fun experience.
  • Juegos Juguetes y Coleccionables: Carrotia is definitely something you want to try because of its simple setting it will be enjoyable for kids and for adults as well.

WHY PLEDGE CARROTIA:                                                                       

                                                                                                                  

  • IMPROVE THE GAME: By participating in this campaign and by pledging to help us reach stretch goals, you are developing further the world of Carrotia! 

  • FEEDBACK: We made a small print of the base game and thanks to your feedback we can make the game even more challenging.

  • SHIPPING: Regardless the country you live, we have partners everywhere and we get your rewards without issue. Thankfully we have the full cooperation of our vendors. We also cover part of the shipping fees in order to make it easier for you to choose the pledge you want.

  • LIMITED PRINT: As we mentioned we made a very small print of the base game and through this campaign we will try now to make a proper print. However all the stretch goals-expansions that will be generated through the campaign will be produced in limited quantity since the costs of production and art are not low and we want to focus first on the base game.

  • NEW EXPANSIONS: Yes, is true. We built the campaing in such a way where each Stretch Goal generates a totally new and different expansion for the game.

 Download the English Rules Here

Each of the characters below has a special ability that you can use once in each maze/round. Only Bandit is an exception that has a continuing effect. These characters help the Rabbit during the game to escape the maze and avoid the birds while it must collect as many carrots as possible.

 

 

While you use dice in the game to move the birds we worked further the random factor and turned the game into a more strategic mode. Before you move in the maze, you roll the dice of the birds that are already in the game in order to see where the birds will move after your movement. This is how you plan your strategy! 

 

Each Stretch Goal will generate a new expansion. Each expansion will be delivered to you in a separated brand new box with its own cover. The standard components in those expansions are 25 new maze/labyrinth tiles, 3 new rabbit characters, new carrot tokens but also each expansion hides few more new components and a new mechanic or a twist.. 

 

 

 

Add on items may affect shipping fees depending the add on item and the country you stay but the difference will not be high. Shipping will be calculated and added after the end of the campaign.

Risks and challenges

PRODUCTION RISKS
Even though we do our best to ensure a quality product and a fast production, there is always the risk of delays. Supplier shortage, holidays, and weather conditions are just a few of the reasons a production could be delayed. MAGE Company should not be held responsible for delays caused by third parties.

REFUND POLICY
We can refund you for a period up to 30 days after the end of the campaign.

MISSING/DAMAGED ITEMS
If you find out that there are items missing after you receive your order, please contact us at magecompanyinfo@gmail.com. We will send you the missing items as soon as possible.

DELIVERY DATE
Our current estimation for delivery is December 2016. History has shown, however, that no matter how well you plan things, there is always a chance of delays.

UNDELIVERED ITEMS
If a package is not delivered due to a backers fault (wrong address given, backer did not claim the delivered package from their post office, etc.), the backer may be requested to pay additional shipping fees for the item to be sent out again.

Thank you very much,
