We've returned to Kickstarter to offer Expansions!
The demand for more of Champion of Earth is so great that we've returned to Kickstarter ahead of our original plans to offer brand new expansions to this game!
You also have an opportunity to get the Core Game from this Kickstarter if you don't already have it!
We'd always planned to extend the enemies that were attacking Earth alongside the aliens.
Robots and Cyborgs are the first to join, putting their steel bodies and mechanical minds to the task of defeating the last defenders of Earth.
Dinosoids, produced by the Aliens' horrific Genetic Recombination, are cold-blooded killers who want nothing more than to rid Earth of Humans for their masters.
This Expansion is unlockable as a Stretch Goal!
Demons take great pleasure in torturing Humanity, and they won't miss this opportunity to wreak terrible punishments on the people of Earth... as if the invasion was not already enough!
This Expansion is unlockable as a Stretch Goal!
The Mystery Expansion features one of the most powerful beings of Earth, who has decided that Humanity must not survive this invasion.
This mystery will be revealed when the Stretch Goal is Unlocked!
Champion of Earth is a fast-paced, light-hearted card game for 1-6 players (1-8 with with Expansions), with a playtime of 20-30 minutes.
You must defend the Earth from the various types of invaders using various (and hilarious) pieces of equipment. All you have to do to win - and be proclaimed Champion of Earth - is kill more monsters than the other players. That should be easy, right?
The equipment defeats monsters through number-matching: anything with an equal or higher value than the monster will destroy it. Some equipment has special abilities, which allow it to look at face-down cards, have a bonus against certain types of enemies, or even wipe all of one type of enemy (Alien, Undead or Creature) off the table!
The Alien invaders have promised the Robots a "chunk of Earth" in return for helping them defeat Humanity... Little do the repressed mechanicals know that they will be getting the Earth's core!
They have agreed and joined the Aliens in their invasion, giving Humanity another enemy to stand against.
“The game is very well thought-out and fast-paced. It’s very satisfying to steal kills away or throw your partner under the bus!”
"Champion of Earth is an entertaining little game to play during breaks or travelling from A to B. So quick and easy to pick up, you can teach it to anyone."
"The first time I played this game, I beat Ed, that’s when I knew I liked the game!"
"When I play this game, saving Earth is a bonus to me, killing other players is the satisfaction."
You can download the Rules as part of the Quickstart Guide, but if you want to know more about the gameplay, here's a video!
Please feel free to ask any questions in the comments, and Ed will reply himself, or make a video to explain if needed!
N.B. Please be aware that add-ons may require extra postage costs!
We've got some fantastic unlockable add-ons!
More to come...
10% Kickstarter - Kickstarter takes its usual 8-10% cut. We'll transfer anything that doesn't get taken for that straight into Stretch Goals!
60% Printing and Shipping - Experience has taught us that the majority of the costs relating to any Kickstarter are getting the rewards out to you guys, safely and in a timely manner. We've had a fair bit of experience now (this is actually our company's 20th Kickstarter!), so we're confident we'll be able to fulfil in a way you'll be satisfied.
10% Development Team - Some of the development team have not yet been paid for their work on Champion of Earth, so they are being paid a percentage of the Kickstarter's funds!
20% Stretch Goals - Every penny that isn't used for getting the rewards to you will be used for development - new artwork for the cards and even expansions that we have planned! This will include artwork, layout, editing, proofreading, playtesting... everything we need to get the extras made!
Risks and challenges
This is Shades of Vengeance's first expansion to our existing card game, which we delivered successfully and well ahead of the communicated deadline for the Kickstarter (Delivered in May)!
This is our 20th crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, including a couple of RPGs which have offered cards.
While we haven't always been mistake-free over the years we've been using Kickstarter, we've always delivered on or ahead of time (except for where a delay was agreed with Backers in order to give them more content!).
For us, each successive Kickstarter builds on the lessons learned from the previous, and we learn fast. At this point, we're confident in our ability to deliver the rewards we're committing to and to keep you informed if there are any delays.
