Your very own Mining Ship!

Your Ship and Player Tracker!
Your Ship and Player Tracker!
  • CREW QUARTERS - This is where your Crew Meeples are stored when they are not in use on the board. In the standard setup, each player begins with three. 
  • MINING RIGS - This is where your Mining Rig Dice are kept when not in use. At $0 you have only one, but as you pass the score thresholds of $10 and $20 respectively, you get access to more!
  • SHIP NAME - Each ship has a beautiful crew illustration and will have a unique name...and you could be the one to name it! See the Name-A-Ship! Pledge level!
  • CARGO BAY - As resource tokens are collected, you will need to store them on your ship until they can be exported. In the standard setup, each player begins with three spaces in their Cargo hold, but it can be expanded to hold more!

Corporate Sponsors

You can use the basic starting loadouts for every player each game, or you can give them a Corporate Sponsor card at random instead to shake things up!

The Board and the Dice

Place Crew on a Mining Site. When it is your turn to roll your dice, if you can make the total with one of your Rig Dice plus one of the Shared Dice, then you get to collect that resource!

The Therion Marauders

The Therion Marauders. Once you begin exporting, they'll know it!
The Therion Marauders. Once you begin exporting, they'll know it!

In space, no one can hear you scream...but they can hear you digging!
Once you and your competition begin exporting the valuable ore for cash, a violent and ruthless species of alien space pirates called the Therion Marauders will begin sending ships to assault the asteroid and support satellites in the area in hopes of keeping you occupied or scared until their mothership arrives to claim the asteroid for themselves. But you don't have to take that from them! You will have ample time to plan around these attacks and there are special protective Dome Shields that can be activated by spending Neutronium as a fuel source. If you have any crew assigned to a site that is under attack, you can pay any resource to protect them, or they must flee those sites and return to their quarters on your ship.

When a Therion Marauders card is drawn, between 0 and 4 Sites are attacked. If you have any Crew there, you have to raise the shields or flee!

The best thing you can do to help Darkrock Ventures is to donate or pledge. The SECOND best thing you can do to help Darkrock Ventures is to spread the word on your Social Media sites! Here are some fun social media avatars you can use to help express your fandom! Collect them all!

The more Followers and Likes we can accumulate means the more people know about our projects, which equals more awesome content in every game! THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

All rewards for this project will be shipped from the USA.

Delivering Your Reward Responsibly

Our number one goal and responsibility is to deliver the rewards that our backers pledge for. Gamelyn Games brings years of experience to this project and has overseen all of our planning and arrangements to ensure Darkrock Ventures will be delivered to all backers in a timely manner just like all of their previous projects.

Every backer is important to us, regardless of location, just as much every pledge makes a difference, regardless of amount. Unfortunately shipping costs are something we all have to face, but that does not mean we cannot be transparent about this challenge and tackle it responsibly. The learning experiences Gamelyn Games has overcome with shipping have come to this campaign in full, and we aim to manage our (and your) risk in a responsible and professional manner.

Shipping costs are a very real factor. They can be volatile and are never trivial. Further, I do not feel that claiming to offer "Free Shipping" only to hide that very real & significant cost somewhere else is the best way of doing things and our backers deserve better. We have decided to offer affordable FLAT-RATE shipping to various regions, but at the same time offer CUSTOMS-FRIENDLY shipping available to ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD through our friends at Ship Naked to offer the best overall value we can for your pledge.

We will always endeavor to keep shipping charges as low as possible by offering discounts on pledges for more than one copy at a time through campaign rewards and add-ons made available through Pledge Manager. The best way to get the game for the lowest cost possible is to split a multi-pack with some friends or family members, everyone can share the cost benefit and more copies ordered means Darkrock Ventures itself will become a better game.

Regarding Customs: Our shipping partner, Ship Naked, offers what they call "Customs-Friendly Worldwide Shipping" meaning they coordinate all transport, customs clearance, and brokerage from the factory to the destination using shipping depots all around the world. They have already laid the groundwork to ensure all packages will make it to backers in every country as smoothly and inexpensively as possible. While we cannot personally guarantee that no single person will have any customs difficulties on an individual level, we are confident in Ship Naked's ability to mitigate any potential issues and keep surprise costs far away from our backers and their ability to make it right should any such problems arise. Historically, Gamelyn Games has had very few individual cases of customs difficulties and the processes have improved even more since those challenges have occurred. Pledge with Confidence!

International Backers Please Keep in Mind: While the shipping costs outside the USA are greater, every base copy of the game will be sold $11 below MSRP through this campaign, with discounts even greater when multiple copies are ordered. Plus, you are guaranteed to get the game before general retailers AND with all bonus content which may never be available at retail at all. Making you pledge in this campaign your BEST VALUE for the complete Darkrock Ventures experience! Get some friends together to split a multi-pack to maximize the value for your pledge!

Risks and challenges

The publication of a board game like Darkrock Ventures is a complicated, time consuming, and expensive process. It is prone to many mistakes and that does not exclude experienced publishers.

We at Magic Meeple Games are new to publishing, but not to the industry; and with Gamelyn games are our publishing partner, we're proud to say that we are prepared for the task at hand and have years of experience in our corner with successful fulfillment of board game projects.

Here are the steps we are taking to prepare and reduce the likelihood of mistakes and delays:

1. We have done significant pre-production. This includes having all the art for the game completed and the graphic design over 75% completed. The production quote is in hand and ready to be initiated. All we need now is your pledges to make it happen!

2. We are proud to be working with Panda Game Manufacturing again, the same manufacturer Gamelyn Games has used to create all of their previous projects. Gamelyn Games and Magic Meeple Games both have a great relationship with their team, we are very familiar with their production requirements, timelines, payment schedules, communication methods and Chinese freight arrangements. Together, we have created some great games and products and we hope that Darkrock Ventures will be our next!

3. Professional distribution is already in place, and we are proud to say it will be handled by Ship Naked. They have been responsible for the fulfillment of previous Gamelyn Games titles. All of which were delivered on schedule reliably and professionally. Ship Naked has proven to be communicative, punctual and customer service minded when dealing with Gamelyn Games' customers and they have extended the same level of service and expertise to Magic Meeple Games' publications as well.

Again, this isn't to say that this project is immune to the possible mishap, they can happen to anyone but we want to show that this road is familiar to all parties involved and we are confident in our ability to deliver our products to our backers and fans. Thank you for your confidence and support!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Above all, We are 100% dedicated to backer communication. We will be transparent with our process, and involve our backers as much as possible.

We will be present daily during the project to answer any questions or read any comments and we will provide regular updates and supply photos of the progress when possible.

Thank you for your trust in us! We couldn't do it without you! Let's bring Darkrock Ventures to the gaming world!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tiny Epic Kingdoms: Heroes Call just finished its campaign, but with Magic Meeple Games on the case, TEK:HC will cause no delays or have any negative impact whatsoever on the production and fulfillment of Darkrock Ventures. We plan for backers of BOTH campaigns to receive their shipments on schedule.

All Gamelyn Games projects have completed fulfillment successfully. Some backers even received their games and figures early! Backers have since written in with elation about the games, the figures and the management of the projects.

Our backers make these games possible! THANK YOU for your support!!
