MYRACLIA: Draft - Terraform - Expand
New board game by Rudy Priecinsky
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Wed, October 2 2019 2:00 PM UTC +00:00.
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?
Envyra Easter Promo mini-expansion is a present for our loyal Envyra backers, and for others maybe a reason to peek in how cute our first game Envyra is.
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.

Do you have only 40-50 minutes of free time and you don't want to play a filler, but rather a serious full-fledged game? Many great games struggle to get on the table because of their long service times. Myraclia is one of those rare games which are pure play and fun. No time wasted with set up and pack up.
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.

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 (total of) 150

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...
You can add 1 extra copy of Myraclia (Iron or Copper Level) to your current pledge by changing your current pledge (e.g. increase your pledge by $46 to add Myraclia Copper Level). Shipping is included.
You can add one Envyra game to your pledge as well. In this case though, shipping for Envyra will be charged after the campaign. Envyra is going to be shipped separately from Myraclia, with the estimated dispatch of November 2019. Follow shipping price estimates in the table.
Please remember, that only shipping of Envyra is charged separately, shipping of Myraclia (incl. extra Myraclia add ons) is included with the pledge (if done correctly).
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 of 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!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
