About

Thank you for making it this far, read on for information about Runicah! We are really proud of the game and hope you enjoy it as much as we do! For that to happen we need your help to make this little dream of ours a reality.

Runicah is a competitive card game that uses set collection, resource management, blind trade, and self serving cooperation mechanics to bring players on a journey of back-stabbing, back-tracking and back-scratching.

Please pledge to help us bring Runicah to fruition. We would be massively grateful if you could share our page with as many people as possible and get the word out! Thanks!

  • 2-5 Players
  • Ages 14+
  • 45+ Minutes
  • Medium Strategy
  • High Player Interaction

Players compete to be the first to collect a set of runes required by their own specific Runekeeper. They do so by completing trials and trading. Trials are solo events with a twist. Players will often find themselves in a position where they cannot complete their trial on their own, and so will need to convince their opponents to help, in return for some runic reward.

Alliances and agreements are flimsy things however and when the time comes, everyone swiftly remembers that there exists an agenda behind each decision.

  • 50 Rune (Collectible) Cards - Half Poker Sized
  • 72 Loot (Resource) Cards - Half Poker Sized
  • 32 Trial (Solo Event) Cards - Poker Sized
  • 32 Raven (Group Event) Cards - Poker Sized
  • 9 Beneficiary (Character) Cards - Poker Sized
  • 15 RuneKeeper (Set) Cards - Poker Sized

All cards are printed on 300g black core paper (grade2), with a professional grade aqueous coating.

We have a couple of stretch goals in mind, all based around improving the value for money in the kickstarter exclusive box, share this page and tell your friends to make the most of your pledge!

Metal Coin - This will act as a group leader identifier, and also look damn slick on the table.

 

 

The Playful Gnome consists of four main collaborators; we are friends, fathers, sons and brothers.

We have been assisted by many friends and family who have faithfully stuck by us (and played the game lots).

The majority of our artwork has been completed by Álvaro Nebot, check out his other work at https://blewzenart.carbonmade.com/

Risks and challenges

As first time creators we have spent a long time researching the common pitfalls in Kickstarter campaigns, and then more importantly the stages after a successful campaign.

This biggest risks for others seem to be:
• Unexpected delays
• Unexpected costs

To reassure you, we have looked at the following:

• Manufacturers
• Shipping/freight methods and terminologies
• Various artists
• Fulfilment options
• Guaranteeing shipping from within the EU

We are also using the services of an accountant to ensure our finances are in order.

Although we have budgeted for things conservatively there is always a small risk that things take longer than expected. It is important to us that the game arrives at your door at a standard of quality we can be proud of; for this reason if we do need time to get things right, that will be a priority.
