Game overview

Spell Card & Component Cards

Why should you back Alchemist Academy?

Alchemist Academy is a fast, light-hearted card game for 2 to 6 players and is played in 30 to 60 minutes. Alchemist Academy is a hand management card game relying on 2 decks of cards, a Spell Deck and a Shop Deck.

The Spell Deck includes 23 different spells which consist of 64 cards in total. The Shop Deck contains 6 different component cards which are required in different variations when casting a spell. This deck consists of 120 cards in total.

Each class (round) players attempt to cast spells on each other and themselves to increase their grade (score).

Some spells are quick and easy to cast and only require 1 or 2 common components, however these only give the caster a small bonus and points, whilst other spells require a number of uncommon or rare items to be cast. Though it may take longer to obtain the components to cast these harder spells, they are far more powerful and can be worth the wait.

Alchemist Academy is easy to learn, has a lot of replay-ability, but most of all it's fun!

Why Kickstarter?

Alchemist Academy has been in development for a little over a year. We have already invested in the design, layout and artwork which is being produced by Fábio Fontes. Now we need your help to get the first print run off the ground. We hope that with your help we will be able to get this game made and in a big way. Every dollar this project can raise will go to increasing the print run and production quality of the game through stretch rewards, while keeping the price of each game as low as possible. With your help we will be able to share this game, not just with backers, but with everyone.

The Stretch Goals

At $21K we will include the six summoning spell cards which, once summoned, give each player a unique ability to call upon during the game.

At $24K we will include another 5 different spells increasing the spell deck by and extra 10 to 15 cards.

At $30k we will include 5 arena cards. These cards represent 5 locations around Alchemist Academy with each one providing special rules and challenges for each game.

Risks and challenges

As just over a third of the artwork has been completed, I expect there to be few complications in finishing the last illustrations by the game's illustrator Fábio Fontes. I do hope to raise more than the pledged goal so we can add many more cards to the game.

As for getting the game printed and shipped to each backer, I have done a lot of research and contacted a number of manufacturers to ensure Alchemist Academy has high quality components. I have found a company that has great customer service and quality products. I am sure that with their help the production run with be smooth. Once printed and shipped to the Game Salute warehouse, I have complete confidence that the game will be distributed to each backer in a fast and timely manner and before anyone else will have the opportunity to buy it.
