About

Do you like space and fantasy? How about dragon-like creatures? Like to collect shiny artwork and uncover an intricate story piece by piece? Are you in to easy-to-learn card games and 10-sided dice? Then the Galaxy Children: Explorers game is definitely for you!

✶What are Galaxy Children?✶

Galaxy Children are an original species created by artist Sarah "Sai" Rebecca , also known as Sare Sai. These creatures were born from my deep love of all things space and fantasy and come with their own lore and world information developed over years of planning. For more details on the Galaxy Child and Draco universe, including  species details and the individual stories of Generation I and II Children, please check out the free informational website at galaxy-children.weebly.com

✶Why a Card Game?✶

It's always been my goal to turn the Galaxy Children universe into a set of PC and mobile games as I love story based play featuring puzzles or fun interactive elements. But since I have no experience making video games, I decided to start with something physical and fun: A card game! 

I wanted my card game to show off the unique art of Galaxy Children while also involving dice-based mechanics which is why the deck is tarot-sized and includes a D10 vital to game play.  I will be expanding the original deck with new Galaxy Children, Dracos, and ability cards but the original game will remain completely playable with no deck-building required.


✶The Campaign✶

The Galaxy Children: Explorers starter game deck is 100% complete, including box and instruction sheets! The only purpose of this campaign is to fund the first run of 200 decks with a local Arizona print company. Funds raised through this campaign will also be invested in the next wave of expansion cards debuting April 2020 along with unique add-ons such as playmats, acrylic standee game pieces, and more! Here's a look at the finalized decks and the official rule sheets:

✶Rewards✶

 ✶Add a signed Discovery Artbook to any tier by pledging an additional $30 per book! Please be sure to message me through Kickstarter with your Add-On request after backing. There is no limit to how many books may be added.

Risks and challenges

I have worked really hard to reduce the risks for the project by working with face to face local printers and providing a wide estimation for print, production, and shipping timelines. Of course there may be hiccups that are out of my control, but I will clearly communicate where the project is in the production process and adjust estimated delivery times as needed.
