Okay guys, it's time for some broad stroke market research! Card costs are insane, and I don't have a publisher behind me, so there will have to be concessions. I also need great artists to paint the world of Kilforth, who are already lined up ready to draw you in, as it were.
I can put the game together in a cool little rigid box and lid with 234 regular/poker-sized high quality cards plus 48 mini-sized cards. Players would have to supply their own six sided dice and (gasp) print their own rules/download the pdf.
After Kickstarter and the government have taken their cut, to make it work I would need 250 backers to buy the game at $55 + shipping. That would leave us a goal of $13,750 to fund the game.
It's higher than I'd like it to be and it sits alongside similarly priced games which have huge, established brands behind them (but less cards). But it's an independent game, a labour of love, with a tight margin.
I have great artists and printing partners lined up and ready to go, but to succeed I'd need your help spreading the word and creating a buzz with posts, blogs, shares, likes, and so on, which I have literally no right to ask you to do. But before we even get to that I have to ask you one question...
Would you be willing to pay $55 + shipping for a copy of Fantasy Quest (234 regular cards + 54 mini cards)?
