Vindication® Boardgame

$823,808

Project Overview

Seek vindication after a life of greed and treachery in this highly strategic, fantasy-based tabletop board game for 2-5 players. Game play generally takes 15-30 minutes per player. Key game descriptors would include: high-strategy, tableau building, resource management, area control, action selection, modular board, and variable player powers.

Thrown overboard for a life of wretchedness, you're left to die in the icy black sea. Just before vanishing into endless darkness, you wash ashore a hostile island ruins where you are revived by a traveler. As you open your eyes to your bizarre new home, you find that something better, something stronger has awakened inside you.

Manage your personal attributes wisely and call on your conviction as you leverage your influence to gain companions, control locations, acquire mysterious relics, bash horrific monsters and (if it’s your style) snuggle some seriously exotic pets in the ultimate goal of mastering heroic attributes — and regaining your lost honor before the end of the epoch is triggered!

Risks and challenges

In our 2nd campaign, we are once again aligning with several time-tested groups to facilitate the most streamlined fulfillment process possible.

PLEDGE MANAGEMENT: CrowdOx is a crowdfunding-specific company focused on facilitating a smooth fulfillment process so that backers stay updated, are responded to quickly, and are valued as part of a larger community.

FULFILLMENT: We intend to use Quartermaster Logistics for worldwide fulfillment. Their team is responsive, knowledgeable, easy to work with, and their network is vast.

While Vindication was Orange Nebula's first crowdfunding project (as creators), we have been in business for over 4 years under this name, with a full-time staff of 5 plus half a dozen steady contractors. We have carefully prepared for this project, including high levels of communication with manufacturers, fulfillment companies, financial institutions, tax and legal specialists, and a handful of other vendors.

As you are reading this, 90% of the design production and high-res digital file preparation is already completed. As a creative agency, we are experts at file preparation and print production, so there will be no delays on our end in that regard. All of the files for the miniatures are already built and ready to rock.

Every project brings with it a few unexpected bumps along the way. Plan for those. We are committed to making decisions that protect the integrity of the product and backer investment and will do so at the expense of timeline if necessary. Rushed schedules can cause expensive errors. It is our privilege to be a part of this all, and we're grateful to have you here with us.
