About

The core game includes: 2 Game Boards, 2 (45 Card Faction Decks), 1 (45 Card Deck-building Deck), 5 flagship cards, 30 metal doubloons in a custom drawstring bag, 20 Demoralize/Inspire Tokens, and 1 Rulebook.

It was the golden age of the sail when the Earth endured a cataclysmic event.  A meteoric impact shook the planet and destabilized the geological structure of the continents plunging the majority of the earth's surface into the sea and awaking ancient beasts from the ocean's depths. Despite this disaster, a remnant of humanity survived.  Those with the most powerful navies soon came to control what little land remained while fleets of pirates and brigands roamed the seas looking to exploit those in need.

Players lead their unique fleets as they take command of vicious monsters,  upgrade powerful ships, and maneuver around the battlefield attempting to destroy their opponent's flagship while protecting their own.

We are very excited about Winds of Fortune and, with your help, can't wait to see it through to completion.

On top of our base goal there are many wonderful additions that I would love to include!  For every $15k beyond our goal that we earn, a single expansion will be unlocked for purchase as a $25 add on.  Each expansion introduces 2 new factions, a plethora of new ships, monsters, and upgrades and progresses the history of the game world.  It will take a little bit longer to produce and ship however, as they are less fully developed right now.

Risks and challenges

Winds of Fortune marks the first release for SafeHaven Games and we couldn’t be more excited. We have spent countless hours playtesting and balancing the game and we are confident that you’ll love the end product. When this project is successfully funded, the game will be printed and shipped.

We’ve finished the rules and templates, are almost finished with the artwork, and are currently working with the manufacturer to finalize and print the first run. Now, we need your help putting wind in our sails! Without backers, we couldn’t afford the cost of printing or shipping.

While we are new to the industry, we are confident that our attention to detail and hard work will make our campaign a huge success. We know that publishing a game consists of many challenges, however we are confident that we can overcome them all. We are determined to deliver 100% on our promises and produce the highest quality game.

We have done a great deal of networking and have learned from many other projects. Our current manufacturer is Panda Game Manufacturing. We have firsthand experience with the quality of their finished products and are very excited to be working with them. We are planning to use Amazon for distribution because of their speed and reliability.

As we encounter struggles, landmarks, and triumphs in this epic journey, we promise to always keep you well informed even after our campaign’s success. We greatly appreciate your faith in us and refuse to let you down.

Sincerely,
SafeHaven Games
