      And regarding Envyra, I have still decent stock here in Slovakia, but I have problem to find the way how to ship them for reasonable price outside EU....but I have no problem to bring Envyra to Spiel 2019 to anybody of interest.

      Hi Piker. Glad to hear you. Thank you for encouraging and helpful remarks. I'm going to do my best with objective limitation we have. We do not want/cannot pay for any reviews/previews for Kickstarter campaign. But as I said, preview video (with rules overview and conclusion) from Nithrania Game Club is ready and available. Branislav Berec did intensive and thorough testing. I'm thankful for his hard work. And I'm happy that he likes Myraclia so much as it really is a great game :-)

      Hi,

      With just a quick look over the campaign looks great. I think the pledge levels are good and low enough for anyone to take a chance on. The only two suggestions I have are:

      1. I think game play videos are becoming a must. It is one thing to read the rules/idea of the game, but to really understand it a video helps a lot. (A 3-4 player video with a close score at the end would probably be ideal.)

      2. I don't know if this is even a possibility, but a pledge level that also includes a copy of Envyra might be nice for people that missed it but found this campaign. (Again, I have no idea if you even have any copies laying around).

      Good Luck, I know I'll be one of the first backers.

      Hi Tobias. Thank you for feedback.

      Definitely considering solo play as I'm avid solo gamer. But development of this mode is very demanding and depends on the outcome of KS campaign. I don't want any half-baked solo mode just to make it more initially appealing. Beauty of Myraclia, among other features, is it's perfect scalability, it is same great fun for 2 players as for higher player counts, up to 5 players. Solo mode MUST match other player counts in perfection and fun :-)

      There is preview video with very clear rules overview already available: https://youtu.be/8tvb4FQTva4

      Video with with more thorough rules should be ready before or shortly after campaign starts.

      Hi,
      Game looks Great with Nice price Point as well. However I Wonder IF there is any chance of solo play? I also Wonder IF there Will be any game play videos online when campaign starts?

About

Planet Myraclia.

Deserted and inhospitable. Wildly controlled by the elements. Life has no place here...

But you came! With your divine powers. You know, or more precisely, you want to turn Myraclia...to a dreamed planet full of life. The task is not easy. You have to subdue chaotic elements of nature, organize them, establish order, to give life a chance...

But you are not alone. Others want to turn Myraclia into their picture. Resources and time are limited. If you want to think of Myraclia as your creation, you have to fight with others ruthlessly for resources, but the form of Myraclia as well.

Your goals are noble. But are your motives?

All rewards (excl. Air ) come with the same Myraclia game. There is no difference to the game itself. However, only Copper, Ebony and Lush Myraclia pledge levels come with beautiful Myraclia Wooden Bowl. Having a bowl on hand during the game is extremely useful for discarding elements (translucent cubes). Of course, Myraclia bowl fits comfortably in the game box.  

Designed by Envyra creator, Rudy Priecinsky, Myraclia is a modern dynamic board game optimized for 2 - 5 players. Thanks to it's fast and fluid game flow, it plays only 50 minutes on average despite its deepness. Myraclia innovatively implements and intuitively combines popular mechanics like action planning, area control, set collection and tile placement with a modular board. Because of high interactivity and significant impact of every player's move, all players must closely follow opponents turns and are constantly immersed in the game. Utilizing unique drafting mechanics determining player order, brisk tactical decisions are decisive. Fast setup and pack up (5 minutes) are features appreciated by more and more players in these hasty times. 

  • elegant modern strategy game
  • for families and hardcore gamers alike
  •  brisk tactical decisions with significant impact 
  •  draft, terraform & expand smarter than your opponents
  •  unique drafting mechanics determining player order
  •  high interactivity between players
  •  deep compact game playable in less than hour
  •  easy to learn, easy to teach 
  •  play the game all the time (5 minutes set up and pack up)
  •  optimized for 2 to 5 players...

Myraclia is full of quality components making the game quite big and heavy. Not to mention beautiful Myraclia wooden bowl. With expensive shipping and logistics in these times we did our best...dare to say even more...to take as much burden from your shoulders as possible.  

Shipping costs are automatically added to your pledge after selecting the reward and destination country.

Please note that selecting 'Nauru' as destination country means No shipping included. Select this option only if you have agreed in advance with us on personal pickup in Bratislava, Slovakia. Estimated delay of personal pickups is 2 to 3 months.

  • new unique game 
  • most valuable edition, collectors gem 
  • independent freelance designer
  • no 'big-budget' marketing, no 'big publisher' backing
  • no 'preorder' system substitute
  •  one price, full game (no hidden price inflation through 'add-ons to die for')
  • no cheaper alternatives later/elsewhere
  • we really need your support
  • vision, passion, hope, and trust

Maybe your best Kickstarter to date? ;-)

Kickstarter and your support gave us a chance to do what we love. We want to honor this opportunity by giving our backers special Kickstarter Myraclia tile...

It is the only Myraclia tile with multiple surface symbols thus counting both as Plains and Forests at the end of the game. It can be optionally added to the game. It wouldn't be fair to provide any Kickstarter exclusives with substantial impact on the gameplay, but at the same time, we wanted our backers to remember this Kickstarter campaign which is so special to us. Enjoy! :-)

Myraclia is a visually stunning and fully complete game with quality components right from the beginning of the campaign. But as we are a very small independent company, many of our visions and hopes for final product rely solely on funding during this campaign. We don't want to reveal them all at once, but rather we are going to work patiently together with our supporters and unlock them one by one. What a lovely sensation to watch Myraclia rise to its full beauty...

What makes this (or any good Kickstarter campaign) so special? Rewards? Yes...but they are only part of this all. I dare to say not the most important to many. Most fascinating are human dreams and visions and path to their fulfillment on which creators and unique group of willing people are walking together. Please invite others to this thrilling ride of Myraclia Creation! Maybe special Social Stretch Goal in the form of practical box insert could be good motivation as well :-)... 

To unlock this special Social Stretch Goal, Myraclia needs:  

  •  150 Facebook Shares of this or any of the following Myraclia Kickstarter Campaign posts on Facebook and 
  •  150 Myraclia Fans and/or Likes of any Myraclia Image on Boardgamegeek.com 

You fiercely compete with other players trying to get limited and chaotically emerging elements, sources of life on Planet Myraclia. You need to get them, organize them correctly, possibly replace them with the other player's elements and ..... a miracle! The desolate and inhospitable part of Myraclia changes into a beautiful cradle of life.

The Myraclia surface is divided into hex tiles. One side represents the original gloomy look of Myraclia, the other side beautiful face of Myraclia full of greenery. 

The game takes place in rounds each divided into two basic phases.

In the first – drafting phase – players are alternatively selecting one by one element from the drafting board. But not the same resources are available in each round. Elements abundant in the last round can become scarce and desirable now. And vice versa. The price for gaining a rare element is great. Speed - and sometimes greed –  determine the important player order for next - terraformation phase. Here players use their elements and turn the parts of the deserted planet into Myraclia full of life. Beware, the first position is not always the best. If you were too greedy in the first phase or you have chosen the wrong combination of elements, other players in turn could benefit from your mistakes.  

Until the last moment, you cannot be sure who gets the title of The Creator of Myraclia.

At final scoring, on top of victory points gained during the game players receive various bonuses depending on their contribution to the final look of Myraclia.

Your reward is a brand new Myraclia, beautiful, full of life. And also the feeling that you have contributed to it ..... the most.

Following animation demonstrates the course of one round...

Envyra was our first officially presented board game project. The small, clever game, playable in 15 minutes.

After the successful Kickstarter campaign, Envyra was delivered to backers, well ahead of the promised deadline. Feedback from Envyra backers was encouraging...

More opinions you can find here.

Myraclia creation was great fun and hard work at the same time. Many different versions and prototypes were tested prior final form of Myraclia was settled... 

Now, we are nearing the grand finale. Introduce Myraclia to those who ultimately decide on her fate.

There are many games out there and many Kickstarter campaigns going on. Some are good, some are bad, but only a few are memorable. Myraclia deserves a special place in our hearts... you are welcome to come along and help make this campaign and Myraclia unforgettable for all of us! 

Risks and challenges

Kickstarter campaign is about fulfilling dreams but also about responsibility. We did it with Envyra. Judging from your feedback, you are happy with the result. We can even humbly declare that Envyra Kickstarter campaign exceeded expectations of many. We are asking for your trust once again. Once again we want to be proud about Myraclia and make this campaign special for all of us. This time, in addition to our goodwill and determination we have...experience.

We are actively communicating with a reliable manufacturer, first Myraclia samples were already received. Shipping is always a hard nut to crack. We have a few options ready with the final decision to be made upon the campaign outcome. Rewards delivery estimates are realistic, our goal is to deliver even sooner. Funding is secured with private savings.

That doesn't mean there are no risks and challenges. It only means that we are ready for them!
