Trinity: A Travel-Friendly Strategy Game

$4,781

186

Trinity is an abstract two player strategy game where you can exercise your tactical expertise and pattern recognition skills to capture your opponent. The game is designed to be compact, yet engaging for ease-of-travel and enjoying downtime during your adventures.

Players have 5 tokens each and can either place a token, move a token, or place a dead space on the board. You capture your opponent's token by maneuvering your own to restrict their movement. The opponent then receives a dead space tile to potentially turn the tides. A player wins when 3 of the opponent's tokens have been captured.

Pouch

Trinity is ready to come along on any adventure with its own travel-friendly pouch. The entire game fits into a forest green neoprene carrying case with zippered-closure and a built-in carabiner. Weighing about the same as a deck of cards with dimensions of approximately 1.25" x 1.25" x  7.5"inches, this game can easily be clipped to your backpack for on-the-go fun. 

Mat

The board mat is made of neoprene which allows it to grip firmly onto most surfaces. We've also ensured that the game comfortably fits on airplane tray tables, so you can play some Trinity while flying off to your next destination. 

Dead Spaces

Each game comes with four black wooden dead space tiles. These tiles are perfectly sized to block off a hex on the board.

Tokens 

The base game comes with a default color theme of Sunlit Forest (green and yellow) tokens. Each game includes five tokens of each color. 

Looking to venture outside of the forest? As a Kickstarter exclusive, backers at the Backpacker tier and above can select from an exclusive set of color combinations. 

  • Sunlit Forest (Green and Yellow)
  • Ocean Sunset (Dark Blue and Orange)
  • Fire & Ice (Red and Light Blue)
  • Snowy Mountain (Black and White)

Kayla and Ankur are board game enthusiasts who started Polaris Games to explore the world of board games further through design, publishing, and reviews. Trinity is our first game that we've designed and are publishing. As avid backpackers, we noticed our favorite games were too large to carry with us and the ones that were small enough lacked the engagement factor found in the larger games. We set out to develop a simple yet engaging game that tackles these challenges and have come up with Trinity.

Risks and challenges

This is our first Kickstarter project, so we expect there will be some lessons learned along the way. We have already identified reputable suppliers and gotten quotes for expected volumes. The assembly of the game will be done in house, but if the volume is very high, then we have identified a potential assembler for the project.
