"Todd demo'd an early prototype of this for me a couple years ago and it seemed to me he was breaking some new ground." -- Peter Adkison, founder: Wizards of The Coast, Owner: Gen Con

"Hauntingly Poetic." -- Ed Grabianowski, io9.com

"...uses cards and card combos the likes of which I've never seen before in a game...the mechanisms built into the cards are staggerily complex and nuanced, bordering even on madness." -- Scott Sexton, BGG.com review

STRETCH GOALS!

Risks and challenges

The is no risk! We already funded our last campaign (November 2014) The card files are on their way to the manufacturer, and we should have final product by September 2015.

This campaign is meant for the many people who missed out on our last fundraiser, and as a way to honor the translators who worked so hard. We just want people to find their work and enjoy our game.

We would love to raise more money, and our stretch goals are all built around creating more product for our growing International fan base.
