Recommended Posts

KHAN OF KHANS is now live on Kickstarter—the battle begins on the Plains of Prax!

Our card game is fun and fast, and an ideal family game for ages 9+.

The Kickstarter campaign runs from January 10 - January 31, and we'd love your support. We are looking for tribal members to take up the challenge and lead their tribe to glory—Wa-ha!

Any chance of adding the Nomad Gods PDF as an extra? I opted for the tin box, but would also like the Nomad Gods PDF...

Best,

Mikael

 

ummm... it already is.

Scroll down the KS-page to just above the 4 countries' round "friendly shipping" seals.

Nomad Gods 72-pg PDF is $9 as an add-on.

I saw no option of adding it to my pledge. 

EDIT: Nevermind. Found it!

Day One is not over yet and we're almost 90% of the way to funding (10K)!

That's our first goal.

Once we see how the first day has gone we'll start unrolling stretch goals. And there really are some fun ones...

Thank you everyone who has already jumped on board their steed and joined the tribe..

Update:

As you would expect, it feels wonderful to have our KHAN OF KHANS Kickstarter get funded within 24 hours, and we did take a few moments to celebrate. Then, the last sentence caught our eye and reminded us there are still 19 days to go. Getting to $10,000 is not the end, it is merely the end of the beginning...

So what's next?
It wouldn't feel like a Kickstarter if we didn't have at least a few stretch goals and surprises in store as we go forward. We are in the process of adding our first stretch goal or two to the Kickstarter text, and we'll have more to look forward to in a few short hours.

Update:

We have just added 5 new backer levels for KHAN OF KHANS!

Each tribe now has its Tribal Warband (limited to 6 slots in each). These fearsome elite warriors lead their tribe's most dangerous raids. Please check out the Kickstarter main page for more details and rewards. It's a chance to get both boxed versions of the game, along with immortalizing your tribe on a deluxe 10" x 10" art board.

Update: 

Our first Stretch Goal at $14,000 was attained so there are now 10 Khans to choose from when you play the game.

And we are drawing close on the next Stretch Goal, at $17,000 - Location Map

The mythic world of Glorantha has always been distinctive for its maps, going way back to William Church's wonderful cartography in RuneQuest and beyond. So our next stretch goal for KHAN OF KHANS is this nifty play aid - a map designed to have all ten of the raiding locations neatly placed around it.

And the flip-side has descriptions of all the places to steal your cows from:

Back us now and let's get this map into our new game! 

More Stretch Goals to follow... 

If you’ve backed Khan of Khans, thanks - and please tell your friends! 

If you’ve not backed yet, but would like to know what the game is all about, do check out our free Print & Play version.

Yes, they are in fact the Enchanting Unicorn Women! The special ability in the game is whenever another player succumbs to Enemy Magic, instead of being discarded the Unicorn Women get their highest value Raid card.

Hi, I have written a review of the game in my runeblog, since I have already had the chance to play the game some months ago:

http://elruneblog.blogspot.com.es/2017/01/khan-of-khans-mecenazgo-y-resena-del.html

As always, use the translation gadget on the right margin to translate the text into a fairly readable/fun text in your own language. ;)

Many thanks for the review!

Coincidentally, another review in Spanish appeared today too, at the Juegos y Dados blog:

Update:

Passing $17,000 means our second Stretch Goal has been achieved. The Khan of Khans game now comes with the double-side Location Map, leading the Praxian warriors to the richest raiding lands in Dragon Pass— Wa-ha!

Our next Stretch Goal is $20,000 - 

NEW CARDS FOR EACH LOCATION STACK!

We'll add 10 new cards the Dragon Pass location stacks, one for each place you can raid. Each card has a uniquely Gloranthan twist and features newly commissioned art by Ian O'Toole.

Raid the cattle market at Boldhome and come home with an extra hundred cows! 
Or see if you can steal Orkhal's Bull from the Colymar. 
But you don’t want to mess with the ducks at Duckpoint - they have extra Enemy Magic! 
Beware of Berserker Trolls in Shadows Dance, and we hear there's a Dream Dragon on the loose at the Dragon's Eye.

Plus five more Gloranthan location surprises in store...

I know! Such a coincidence! But I wrote my review first! xD

BTW, I guess with the extra cards, Colymar Lands and Boldhome will be the most raided lands at the beginning of the game, since there's a bigger chance of getting cows there.

And perhaps if you raid the Grazelanders, you may get an extra Waha's Blessing for killing horses (?).

Update:

500 backers—we are really beginning to assemble a mighty Praxian horde!

Many thanks for everyone's support, and please keep spreading the word about Khan of Khans.

We have updated the main Kickstarter page quite a bit, adding more of the art, a play-through description and play-through video, as well as a section on what people are saying about Khan of Khans.

The Dice Tower's Board Game Breakfast also had nice things to say about Khan of Khans today...

Update:

As we scan the horizon we see that the next stretch goal of $20,000, the 10 additional location cards, is almost within our grasp.

Each card has a uniquely Gloranthan twist and features newly commissioned art by Ian O'Toole.

Here's a sneak peek at some of the new cards, with more delightful art!

Screen Shot 2017-01-17 at 5.59.00 pm.png

There are 10 new cards, one for each of the Dragon Pass location stacks.

The Duckpoint card: Duckpoint is the home of the cantankerous Ducks, a cursed race of humans that became duck-like, or ducks that became humanoid (don't ask!).

Don't Mess with the Ducks.png

Don't mess with the Ducks!

The Shadows Dance card: Shadows Dance is the dark and gloomy homeland of the Uz (also known as trolls), fabled for its living shadows that crawl about the landscape.

Berserker Troll!

Update: 

Our great horde has just thundered past $20,000, unlocking the Additional Location Cards - Wa-ha!

Here's one more card from the new set, a hungry Dream Dragon from The Dragon's Eye. Better get your cows safely locked away in a corral before it spooks them into a Stampede!

Dream Dragon no text copy.jpg

Our new Stretch Goal at $23,000 is a downloadable Wallpaper Collection of Ian O'Toole's delightful Khan of Khans art!

Can we get to the next Stretch Goal? Yes we Khan!
