About

Force of Fiction is a storytelling game that brings a group together around a board.  It's simple with a healthy dose of strategy... and an engaging story that is different every time you play.

Introduction from the game rules:

"In Force of Fiction, players will be influencing a story as it unfolds.  This is done by giving challenges of various difficulty to the protagonist as she travels to different locations around her home.  Success or failure in these challenges will alter her status.

The story will progress based on this status as well as her location at the moment one of the 4 story frames is triggered.  The timing of these triggers is a key strategy.  To do so, players must choose which actions to take, and when.  At the end of the story, whichever player had the greatest impact on it, will win."

Our Goal:

Our goal is to raise enough funds to finish the art and manufacture the game.  This game has been vigorously play-tested and meticulously altered to reach a high standard that we want the art to match.  We’ve set our funding goal high enough to ensure a quality finished product.

Many of the excess games that are not sent to kickstarter backers will be sent to game stores around the country to promote ourselves as a new publishing company.

Projected Game Components:

  • 1 Board
  • 60 Challenge Cards
  • 34 Story Cards
  • 15 Adventure Cards
  • 12 Action Wheels
  • 36 Tokens
  • 1 Black Token
  • 1 Tracker Token
  • 4 Frame Markers
  • 3 Status Figurines;
  •      High
  •      Neutral
  •      Low
  • Valor Die
  • Rule Sheet

About the artist:

Kelton has completed programs at the Northwest College of Art, and the Gnomon School of Visual Effects.  He is currently working full time as a concept artist for the Aaronsims company.  He frequently works personally with celebrity producers and directors to bring their ideas to life, and it is an honor to have him involved in this project.  Some of his other work can be seen at keltoncram.blogspot.com.

Edit:

We have been adding regular updates to detail individual parts of the game and will continue to do so.  Please read the Updates section for more information on the game.
