About this project

Plunder! will be coming back soon. Check out www.plundergame.com for more info.

Life at sea isn’t easy, especially when you’re a pirate. You have to beware of sea monsters, storms, the royal navy, ancient curses… But by far the most dangerous thing on the seven seas is rival pirates. They will stop at nothing to steal all your hard-earned treasures, so you shouldn’t hesitate to do the same if you get the chance.

Plunder! is an exciting fast-paced card game with a lot of "take that" action, set in a fictional Golden Age of Piracy strongly inspired by the classic pirate stories we all know and love.

You're a fearsome pirate and your goal is to steal treasures and pirate crew members from rival pirates. You do this by playing action cards that will benefit you and hurt your enemies, and special reaction cards to protect yourself against attacks.

The game will be printed in two language versions. After the campaign ends you'll be able to select which version you'd like to receive.

The illustrations for the game will be made by the talented Kae Richardson.

On your turn you choose one of the actions. When you play a card, sometimes you'll gain treasures or crew members, and sometimes it will make your opponents lose (some of) theirs.

Watch closely what the other pirates do in their turn, and play reaction cards to defend yourself or to profit from their actions.

If you want to add a second copy of Plunder!, add €20 to your pledge amount. For more than two copies, see "group pledges" below.

After the campaign has ended, you'll get access to the pledge manager where you can upgrade your pledge and add more copies or add-ons. However, keep in mind that stretch goals can only be unlocked during the campaign, not afterwards in the pledge manager.

Group pledges are available starting at 8 copies, at a reduced price of €18 per game instead of €24. See the pledge level in the sidebar.

For more than 8 copies, add €18 per additional copy to your pledge, or €30 for Treasure Edition copies.

For retail pledges, please contact me directly.

 

 

Risks and challenges

There are a lot of challenges related to manufacturing a game and shipping it on a global scale. I have done a lot of research, got many price quotes in advance and explored various options for each step of the process, and I'm confident that I will be able to get the game printed and shipped to all of you.

Of course, no matter how carefully you plan something, things can always go wrong. But whatever happens, if any problems arise and the game has to be delayed for a while in order to make sure the quality is good enough - You'll be the first to know.

The game itself is complete. The rulebook still needs some editing to make things easier to understand, but other than that the rules are practically done.

The artwork of the game is currently about 60% done. Half of the cards have been illustrated, and the art for the box is complete. The rest of the cards and other illustrations still need to be done, as does a lot of the graphic design and layout work.

This work should be completed by early 2018, so that we can get ready for production around spring. Fulfilment will then happen as soon as production is done. How soon that is, will entirely depend on the manufacturer's queue at that point. But barring any major setbacks, the games should be showing up at your doorsteps around late summer or fall 2018.
