Purpose of this fundraiser
In 2009 I self-published my first game, Linwood. This was soon followed up by my first card game, Capek. Since then I've had two games picked up by Dutch publishers, White Goblin Games. Now I want to self-release my latest game, Plethora. I plan to produce just 500 copies. I have already lined up a manufacturer, and have a price quote from them. To release Plethora I really need around $6000.




Shipping of rewards
Should this funding attempt be successful, all pledgers earning rewards will be kept up-to-date on the expected release date of Plethora. This should be before the end of September. There are no additional costs for shipping. I will ship anywhere in the world... and maybe to the moon.

Game overview
Each player aims to have the most nobility points at the game’s end. To gain nobility, players will need to complete various commissions for the city’s nobles. When players reach 1 of 3 nobles they receive a rendezvous. They then journey to that location. On reaching their destination they receive a commission. This involves traveling to one or more locations to purchase gemstones.
Players will need silver to buy their pearl, amber or sapphire. After delivering the gemstones, they receive gold and silver from the supply. Gold can be sold to a noble for a nobility card. To buy a card, players pay the gold shown on the aligning ‘keep’. The game ends when only 2 nobility cards remain.

We hit the $6000 target with 10 days to spare!

A huge thanks to all those who pledged and are continuing to pledge. Production for Plethora is already underway, and should hopefully be ready mid-late September. There's just 3 days left for people to take advantage of the special $60 pre-order option. So please help spread the word!

We currently have 85 copies of Plethora already pre-ordered. Along with those, another 83 copies of Linwood will also be heading out the door.

Thanks again for making this dream a reality.

It's time for an update!

The funding page currently has 11 days to go, with only $280 remaining to reach the target goal of $6000 NZD.

I decided to back myself last week by paying a deposit to get production underway. This should hopefully pull the release date closer to mid September.

So in summary - Plethora is definitely being published! If you want to secure your copy, plus a free copy of Linwood, and free international shipping go here to make a pledge - http://www.pledgeme.co.nz/348

A huge thanks to all those who have pledged so far. You have literally made my dream come true!
