This looks really intriguing. 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
It's a very intriguing game and a fascinating way to experience a story -- Jonathan H. Liu, Geekdad.com

STRETCH GOALS UNLOCKED!!!
Everyone who orders a physical copy of the game receives these Kickstarter exclusive special cards and things below if we reach the following goals: (see bottom of page for card pics!)
Spell Saga is a story told in three parts, and is composed of three decks and a 20 card "ending". The first deck, known as The Highlands, has been played worldwide for the last year. You can play it for free! Just click the link above to download the cards, then print them at home or your local printer.
In the Autumn of 2013 we launched a Kickstarter for Spell Saga, and did not meet our goal. Now we have returned, bringing an International fanbase and splitting the game into separate decks. (Deck One is now a base game, while the decks will be considered expansions).
We are seeking funds to do a limited print run of Deck One: The Highlands (we're calling it a "zero" edition)! Although we plan to continue making the game available for PnP, this might be your only chance to grab a physical set of cards.
Now that our fundraiser has succeeded, we will offer the rest of the decks in limited "zero editions" as well. (Deck Two: The Forest is finally ready for Print & Play files, and you can pre-order it below by donating at any tier)!
We've partnered with Panda Game Manufacturing to bring you the high quality product this game deserves to be. Backers may donate whatever amount they like. For pledges that reach specific levels, we offer the following rewards:

For us to publish the game at anything less than expensive we need the best possible solution. Kickstarter allows us to print overseas, as well as share our game with a wide audience of people just like us: players ready for something special.

Risks and challenges
All the work for Deck One: The Highlands is done. All of it. The files are ready to be shipped to our printer and printed. Our hyper-violent T-shirt?: designed and ready for printing. The companies we're using have been contacted. Schedules are in place.
The Print & Play files for Deck Two: The Forest will be ready to download by Christmas, there's just a bit of art and play testing adjustments left to do.
We spent two years fine-tuning a budget, exhausting our resources and getting the game ready for manufacturing. We are using Panda Game Manufacturing to make sure the process goes smoothly, timely, and professionally. And we have stretched our timeline to give us extra time "just in case"
That "just in case" could include any number of print or ship hiccups, but we're committed to getting everything to everyone as quick as International shipping can allow.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
