Dare to Dream is an asymmetrical battle between The Darkness - a single player with endless hordes of monsters and nightmares at their disposal - and The Dreamers - a team of players who must rely on their few loyal Guardians to protect them through the night.

At the start of the night The Dreamers set out their defenses, preparing to face the horrors of The Darkness. Once they have set up their Guardians by equipping them with powerful Items and protecting them with potent Wards, they tuck in for the night and go to sleep. Then, the hours begin to tick by and The Darkness goes to work!

Every hour, new Monsters and Nightmares can brought into play by The Darkness and sent at the Dreamers. Monsters and Nightmares are fleeting things, gone forever once they have been used, while the Dreamers' Guardians persist through the night. The Dreamers' goal is to win by outlasting The Darkness; if morning safely arrives, the Dreamers win. But if The Darkness can wake the Dreamers enough times, the forces of dread have prevailed and The Darkness wins instantly!

Dare to Dream is for 2-4 players aged 10 and up and takes about 45 minutes to play.

Check out our how to play video below for a quick rundown of the set up and first couple of turns of a game of Dare to Dream!

Or if you want to play a few turns of the game yourself, you can try out our online 3- and 4-player demos at Tabletopia! Our demos are free to play and Tabletopia runs through your browser so you don't even have to download any software. Read this Update for more information on the Tabletopia demos, finding other players, and learning to play from the developer!

Risks and challenges

Dare to Dream is fully illustrated and thoroughly playtested; we just need your help to raise the funds to get it manufactured.

This is our second Kickstarter, and we have learned a lot from our successful launch of Exquisite Beast last year. We ran in to a lot of delays in freighting and customs with that project, but we think after changing freight companies based on our own experiences and consultations with other successful Tabletop Kickstarter creators we have solved that issue.

We are extremely happy with our manufacturer and distributor for Exquisite Beast and so look forward to working with them again. We are also able to provide world-wide shipping this time around!
