Far East War 1592 is a strategic war game for 2 or 4 players. Players resuming the Japanese forces and the Korea/Ming alliance will fight over the control on the Korean Peninsula. With the rondel mechanic of action selection, over 30 characters with special abilities to reinforce your army, and tactical balance between deployment of troops and resource supply, only the most skillful player will win the war. 

 

 

After the release of the Taiwanese (Chinese) Edition in Taiwan, we’ve got a great deal of feedbacks from the gamers who played and loved our game! We have some ideas and would love to see them become real. But this will need YOU to help! If we can raise enough fundings, these stretch goals will be added to each copy of FEW1592 pledged! The stretch goals “ 3 NEW GENERAL CARD” will NOT be included in the future retail version, but will be availalbe for purchase in conventions or on our website.

Or watch the "How to Play" video below (in English) to get a grip of the gameplay!

 

 

  

 

The "Dice Castle" is made of wooden pieces and you may enjoy seeing the beautiful castle rising up during the assembling process. It's designed by a Taiwanese architect Bowen Yang. The design recapitulates the beauty of Japanese architectures and the image of the famous Osaka Castle. With the astonishing Dice Castle by your side, your battles in Far East War 1592 will be simply AMAZING.

 

 

The Dice Castle in the video and photos are production samples. The final product will be more delicate!!

 

After doing some researches on various Kickstarter projects, we decide to charge the shipping cost after the campaign ends. We will collect the payment when the production is finished and games are about to be shipped. In this way we can be fair to all our backers on the shipping cost. 

We will ship the games to our international fulfillment partners, and your rewards will be shipped WITHIN your areas so that NO EXTRA TAX will be born. The followings are rough estimates for shipping a standard game package (2.2 kg volumetric weight). Adding a Dice Castle (1.2 kg) will increase the shipping cost a bit, but not too much. 

Pledging 3 copies will greatly reduce your shipping cost per copy. Please keep in mind that these are estimates, and costs may rise based on weight increases from unlocked stretch goals and any add-ons you include.

The designers KJ and Allen are both co-founders of a boardgame store located in New Taipei City in Taiwan. They know deeply how important friendly local game stores are for our beloved hobby, and there is no doubt they would love to support retail stores 100%!

If you are running a brick and motar game store, don’t hesitate to contact Smoox Chen at mizoriot@gmail.com and we will offer retailer package for you! You will get the current KICKSTARTER Edition with all unlocked STRETCH GOALS just like all other backers!

First of all, we need YOUR SUPPORT to bring the International Edition of FEW1592 to reality! The Chinese Edition had great success in Taiwan and we want to make this game available in wider spectrums.

In return, you get the best deal only on Kickstarter. The retail version of FEW1592 will bear a MSRP of around $70. Back us now and you can get it for only $60 ($50 for EARLY BIRDS!) and possibly some unlocked stretch goals for free, with discounted shipping cost!

To ensure we reach the funding goal and unlock stretch rewards, it’s very important to spread the words on social media!

We have also made some social media avatars that you can use to show your support!  :-D

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

FEW1592 was previously crowdfunded in Taiwan at a final amount of about 30,000 USD. http://www.few1592.com

Thia game is well tested in the market and we had over 2500 people in the Facebook Fanpage.
https://www.facebook.com/few1592

We are pretty confident of the gameplay and the quality of the components. The major risk of this project will be the distribution of the products all over the wolrd. However, we have reached out to various fulfillment service professionals and found the best partners who can work closely with us to deliver the games as smoothly as possible.

There might be some unpredictable obstacles such as strikes and shortages that will cause delayed delivery, but we will stay transparent and keep you updated in regular basis throughtout the whole process. We sincerely welcom you to join us in this endeavor. Thanks a million for your support!
