WE DID IT!

Thanks to everyone for your support and words of encouragement through the campaign. I never thought we would actually pull this thing through, but we did it. Congratulations to everyone for pulling through in these final minutes and helping me pursue a dream. Lets look forward to playing some Foe Hunters in the near future! :)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Foe Hunters is an exciting co-operative, multiplayer deckbuilding/adventure game set in the realm of high fantasy! Players take the role of heroes that are working together to thwart the evil Foe. On their adventure the heroes will work together in an effort to bolster their party and fend off this powerful enemy. The players will harness mighty abilities and powerful equipment while they work as a team to rid the world of this wretched evil!

  • 1 - 6 Players  
  • 60 - 90 Minutes Playtime
  • Ages - 13+

You may notice that we have several pieces of placeholder art in the images below. Do not be alarmed! We commissioned several pieces of art for the game in advance to show you what our artist is capable of and to give you a general idea of the flavor and composition of the game. Unfortunately, art is expensive, and because of this we were only able to generate a handful of pieces prior to the launch of the campaign.

Whats in the box? 

Foe Hunters will ship in a box that is big enough to house all of the cards in the game, upright, in sleeves! We have planned ahead for sleeve spacing and deck separation, and even included extra room in case things get crazy in the future. Inside the box you will have: 

  • 1 Rulebook 
  • Twenty Five (25) 10mm ten sided dice for tracking hit points/experience points 
  • Six (6) 15-18 card Hero Decks complete with Hero cards 
  • Three (3) 40-60 card Foe Decks complete with double sided Foe cards  
  • One (1) 85 card City Deck 
  • Ten (10) Armor/Power tokens to track Armor and Power effects 

Of course, the box will also include all of the additional content we unlock during the campaign!

In Foe Hunters each player selects one of the Heroes to play, each having its own unique starting deck. After selecting their Hero, the players set up the Foe deck and the City deck and you are ready to play! Each turn the player can play a card from their hand, buy a card from the City deck, and activate a heroic Feat in any order. Cards purchased from the City deck go directly into your hand instead of your discard pile, so you can play them right away! Once you have done these simple actions, your turn is over and the next player goes. Once all players have gone, the round restarts with the Foe activating their powerful abilities. Gameplay continues until the party is dead or the Foe is dead, whichever happens first.

While Foe Hunters is a deep and strategic game, the component set up is easy. First, pick the Foe you are facing and your favorite Heroes. Next, shuffle their respective decks and place those decks on the table. Gather the dice used for marking hit points and experience and you are ready to go! We have our blind testing rules available for viewing here for those interested in a more detailed description.   

Please note that these rules only include the bare bones mechanics for Foe Hunters and do not have anything like character bios, difficulties, story, etc. The rules included in the box at launch will have a lot of additional information with a better layout and design!

A note about solo play - Solo play in Foe Hunters is definitely possible. While we haven't balanced specifically for Solo play, mechanically the game functions the same. Since there are a lot of things going on at once in Foe Hunters, and that burden is usually shared by multiple people, solo players may see some mental fatigue while keeping track of everything.

Who are we?    

Spellforge Games is a small, independent design studio and hopefully with your help, soon to be publisher. Spellforge Games is a project that we have worked on for many years in an effort to promote and design new games. I have always been very passionate about gaming, and promoting tabletop gaming as a hobby. As someone that comes from a traditional marketing background, I understand the need for transparency and support. Everyone involved in this project is very passionate about not only games, but delivering a quality product as well. It is very common for Kickstarter campaigns to have a big wishlist and commit to lofty goals, but fall short on delivery. We totally understand why it happens, we just don't think it should. We are committed to delivering a quality product that will hopefully brighten up your gaming table for many years to come!

Why back Foe Hunters ?  

Kickstarter has been an amazing tool for independent developers. 10 years ago, if you had a solid design and wanted to get published, you either had to pitch your game to the 20 different publishers in the market or sell everything you own. With the advent of crowd funding, indie devs can actually make their game real without relying on a big publisher or going into life altering debt. With this in mind we have turned to Kickstarter in an effort to fund Foe Hunters. We have been working on the game for a long time and we feel like it offers a great new experience that isn't available in the market currently. Like most games, there will always be something similar, but Foe Hunters takes that to the next level. Mixing full co-op gameplay with lightweight rules and complex interactions, we hope to share our game with gamers everywhere.

This project is EU friendly!

Rewards that ship to the EU will fulfill from within the EU!

Risks and challenges

As with anything related to crowdfunding, there is always a risk. I have worked with several companies in the gaming industry, both big and small, to bring their projects to light. This is the first Kickstarter project from Spellforge Games, but we have done our homework. We want to be as transparent and open with users as possible, which is how we would want to be treated if the roles were reversed.

All of that being said, we can't plan for everything. We want the project to be as painless and efficient as possible, but there will likely be speed bumps along the way. We plan on keeping everyone updated through comments, updates, and social media about our status as we move through the process.
