About

HOARDERS is a competitive 2 player board game that pits a band of Dwarves, bent on recovering the lost treasure of King Dorum, against an enormous and greedy Mountain Troll. The game plays anywhere from 20-40 minutes, where-in the Dwarves strive to recapture the Relic of the Iron Peak and the covetous Troll defends HIS treasure at any cost.

Long ago, King Dorum sent away the Relic of the Iron Peak Dwarves to aid their kin in a far off land. En route, the Relic and the treasure with it was stolen by a filthy Mountain Troll. The Relic was considered lost, until now… King Dorum’s son, Khorum, now rules the Iron Peak Dwarves and he has sent his bravest warriors and lancers to recover the Relic from the vile creature’s lair.

Behold the Relic of our ancestors!

A brave band of Dwarven Lancers and Warriors storm forth from the Iron Peak to raid the Troll’s lair, where they will kill the troll, steal back their treasures and reclaim their birth right, the Relic.

As the enormous, smelly, Mountain Troll, you will control its huge feet and powerful Hammer. The Troll needs to fend off the greedy dwarves to protect his treasure hoard. Did we mention Dwarves are good eatin'?!

Three ways to play

  • The Dwarves must recover all three Treasure piles (fairly hard) 
  • The Dwarves must recover the Relic that was stolen, but it's in which Treasure pile? The Troll doesn't even know! 
  • The Dwarves are after the Relic, but this time the Troll knows exactly where it is.

This is really the BIG Troll in the room isn't it? Shipping is very expensive but we want to be fair to our friends/kin outside of the United States. 

Rewards bound for the EU, Canada, Australia, and the U.S. will ship from within those regions with no extra customs charges!

If something does change we will let everyone know via an update.  

PLEASE NOTE: We do not offer shipping to Brazil, Russia, or South Africa due to high fees beyond our control.

Here you will find an overview of our plan for releasing Hoarders, including a rough timeline and costs. There's a lot going on behind the scenes and we will be sure to keep you informed through Updates.

This is a rough timeline and subject to change.

Risks and challenges

Every project has risks, and Hoarders is no exception. Our main concern is manufacturing and shipping but we've done our research, obtained estimates, received initial prototypes, and made the right contacts. This being our first Kickstarter means that we will have some ups and downs ahead. We've researched and planned, a lot, and we've budgeted extra money and time for snags along the way.

The artwork for Hoarders is 90% complete and anything that changes now will be for the better. We've playtested Hoarders feverishly but we are constantly making edits to the rules to make the game-play even more fun.

We are excited to have you in our Lair, lets get this Treasure out, avoiding any Trolls as we go!
