About

Hard Day’s Knight is a 2-6 player fast-paced, strategic, character card dice manipulation game with caricature artwork similar to Mad Magazine embracing the irreverent comic style of Monty Python's Holy Grail and the humorous spirit of The Princess Bride.

From Disco Dancing Dragons to Angelina Zombie, Hard Day’s Knight takes place in a world like no other. With classic and modern pop culture references crossed with fantastical quests Hard Day’s Knight is a fun and entertaining game for all.

Rolling dice and Character action cards set the stage for surprisingly complex and strategic gameplay. Though the setup may be random, the gameplay and outcome rest entirely on the choices made by each player.

Choosing when to enlist the help of your Motley Crew, what characters you enlist, and the cunning compounded action in which you play your crew makes this an exciting and intricate game. And don't forget to properly manage your Gold and Crew resources so you can control the table like a boss when the time comes. Tension builds with each round as you battle your opponents to complete the available quests. Timing, wit and creative choices are all crucial to obtaining victory.

Each player starts with a set of 4 dice, 4 gold coins, 4 Motley Crew cards and Gifts of Gallantry. Obtain your Motley Crew cards by drawing in the Standard game or by drafting in the Advanced game.

The central gameplay of Hard Day’s Knight is to utilize your Motley Crew to manipulate the dice on the table so you can attain Weapons, Armor, or the Travel you need to complete Quests. By cleverly ordering and stacking the actions of your crew you can strategically acquire the elements you need to complete a quest at the same time as stopping your opponents from doing the same. But don't worry about your opponents, they will always have a chance to complete other Quests because in HDK there is NO PLAYER ELIMINATION. All players are actively competing until the very end.

Completed Quests collect you a greater income and Laurels of Valor. Laurels of Valor help you acquire Gifts of Gallantry. Gifts of Gallantry win you the favour of the Princess and the game.

                               

 “A very fast playing, rowdy, wild and crazy, beer and pretzely type game of rolling dice and then shiftily playing cards to outwit your opponents. At its heart this a cutthroat aggressive in your face area control game where the area is dice.” Richard “Rahdo” Ham

 “I’ve always really enjoyed games with lots of player interaction and lots of ability to mess with other peoples plans. There’s a whole social aspect of the game, the game becomes the purpose of sitting at the table with all your friends and laughing and having a good time. It’s the facilitator of that. This is a game that doesn’t take a long time to get to the fun.” Lance “Undead Viking” Myxter

Risks and challenges

We believe the biggest challenges in publishing a tabletop game are the Manufacturing and Shipping logistics. Last year we ran a custom dice Kickstarter campaign delivering items we handmade to backers all over the world. This familiarized us with the process of delivering a Kickstarter campaign internationally and fulfilling the promise we made with our backers to deliver the individually personalized product they requested in the time frame we specified.

For this campaign we have been in talks with PandaGM and WinGo Games to handle our manufacturing. And for fulfillment we will be using Amazon for delivery in the United States and Ideaspatcher for International delivery. Ideaspatcher will allow us to fulfill our backer orders in the EU without backers having to pay any additional customs charges. All of these companies have a proven history in providing quality services in a timely manner.

We have thoroughly playtested this game and 99% of the artwork has already been completed. The deliverables needed to begin manufacturing will be handed off to the manufacturer within 2 weeks of the campaigns completion and manufacturing will then commence immediately.

We are confident that all of the planning and preparation we have done for the development, the manufacturing, and the shipping of this game will ensure a smooth and enjoyable experience for all of our backers. And it is our promise to keep you updated with details of all manufacturing and shipping developments as soon as we learn about them.

Thank you for your interest and we hope to see you as one of our backers.
