Rising Sun: Kickstarter läuft
Der neueste Brettspiel-Kickstarter von CoolMiniOrNot ist live und legt erwartungsgemäß ordentlich vor!
Clans must use politics, strength and honor to rule the land in this board game with amazing miniatures set in legendary feudal Japan.
Rising Sun is a board game for 3 to 5 players set in legendary feudal Japan. As the Kami descend from the heavens to reshape the land in their image, it is up to each player to lead their clan to victory. Use politics to further your cause, negotiate to seek the most profitable alliances, worship the Kami to gain their favor, recruit monsters out of legend to bolster your forces, and use your resources wisely to be victorious in battle.
Created by acclaimed designer Eric M. Lang, Rising Sun reunites the same creative forces responsible for the smash hit Blood Rage, with stunning artwork by Adrian Smith and intricate miniatures sculpted under the direction of Mike McVey.
Es geht also um ein Strategiespiel rund um Ressourcenmanagement, Diplomatie und Eroberung. Jeder der 3-5 Spieler übernimmt die Kontrolle über einen der 5 Clans, die mit Hilfe der Kami (Geister/Götter) um die Macht kämpfen.
- 58 Highly Detailed Miniatures, including 10 warriors for each clan and 8 huge monsters.
- 40 Counter Bases
- 137 Tokens
- 5 Clan Screens
- 5 Political Sheets
- 53 Cards
- 6-fold Gameboard
- 1 Rulebook
Hier ein Gameplay-Video:
Jeder Clan bringt 10 Modelle und natürlich auch regeltechnische Besonderheiten mit sich:
Koi (Flow, Like Water) – Ever adaptable, the Koi clan is able to use hired Ronin as coins and vice versa, giving them great flexibility and making their decisions very unpredictable.
Koi Daimyo, Shinto and Bushi.
Dragonfly (Wings, Wind and Spirit) – Flying on gossamer wings, the Dragonfly clan is able to move anywhere on the map without restriction. You never know where they’ll strike next.
Dragonfly Daimyo, Shinto and Bushi.
Bonsai (Humility, Earth and Root) – Ever growing and evergreen, the Bonsai clan needs to spend no coins when buying resources. Strongholds sprout from the ground and Upgrades to the clan blossom naturally.
Bonsai Daimyo, Shinto and Bushi.
Lotus (Patience is key) – The Lotus clan dictates the flow of politics by turning the Political Mandates they play into anything they wish. A powerful ally to have at your side, and a terrible foe to betray.
Lotus Daimyo, Shinto and Bushi.
Turtle (Hard as the mind; delicate as steel) – The Turtle clan builds their Strongholds on top of the shells of giant legendary turtles. These indestructible fortresses can move around the map and even join in the fights for the provinces.

Im Laufe des Spieles kann man auch übernatürliche Monster anwerben, die besonders große Modelle haben werden:
The miniatures shown are resins. All miniatures in Rising Sun will be pre-assembled plastic.
Alle gezeigten Modelle sind Resingüsse. Die fertigen Modelle bei Auslieferung werden aus Plastik sein und zusammengebaut geliefert werden.
Es gibt genau einen Pledge-Level, der sich aus dem Grundspiel, dem Kickstarter-Exclusiven Phoenix Monster, und allen freigeschalteten Gratis-Stretch Goals zusammensetzt:
Note that anything marked with this:
is an Exclusive item for Kickstarter backers, with remaining stock available at conventions and special promotions only.
Please Take Note!
Based on past experience, we will be charging shipping after the Kickstarter concludes based on the actual costs incurred to ship. We will collect this via our pledge manager after the campaign ends. This is so we can be fair to all our backers as shipping is rarely one size fits all, and also give you more stretch goodies and possibly a choice of carrier options.
We will ship your rewards at our cost to our international hubs. Depending on where in the world you are, we will either ship to you from our hub in the UK (EU backers), China (Asia Pacific backers), Canada (Canadian backers), Australia (Australia and New Zealand backers) or Atlanta (USA and the rest of the world). Following is a list of rough estimates for shipping a standard game package (4kg volumetric weight). Keep in mind these are just estimates, and costs may rise based on weight increases from unlocked stretch goals and any optional buys you choose.
- USA: $10-$15 to most states. $30 to Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico.
- CANADA: $10-$20 to most cities.
- LATIN AMERICA: $50-$60 to most countries.
- ASIA: $10 to China and Hong Kong. $30 to most other countries (we can’t predict an estimate cost to Malaysia).
- OCEANIA: $13-$25 to Australia. $30 to New Zealand.
- AFRICA: $80 to most countries.
- EUROPE: $15-$30 to most countries.
- $35 to Norway, Finland, Estland, Lettland, and Latvia.
- $40 to Bosnia/Herzegovina, Croatia, and Serbia.
- $55 to Bulgaria, Lithuania, and Romania.
- $60 to Iceland and Israel.
- $70 to Greece and Turkey.
Unfortunately, different import laws and customs from some specific countries have made it impossible for CMON to ship games to them.
*WE DO NOT SHIP TO:* Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Afghanistan.
Be aware that all pledges that are confirmed after the pledge manager deadline will be shipped from the US hub at a later date. For non-US backers that will likely incur increased shipping costs. We also cannot ship to PO Boxes domestically or internationally. Due to the size of each package there is too great a risk of the package being bounced back to us.
Please note that while we do our best to get you your rewards in a timely manner, you may not necessarily receive your rewards before the product makes it into distribution in your own country or before it’s made available in conventions and special promotion opportunities. We hope that the special price and exclusive items you will get during the Kickstarter will make up for any such possible lag. However, if this is something that is not acceptable to you, please do not back this project, and instead wait for the retail release. Thank you for your understanding.
The table below gives you a general idea of the full schedule of what to expect once the campaign ends. Keep in mind these are just estimates, and the timeline may vary due to circumstances.
Es gibt auch einen eigenen Retailer-Pledge, allerdings nur für Einzelhändler in den USA und Kanada mit festem Ladenlokal. Die Einzelheiten könnt ihr hier nachlesen.
Der Kickstarter hat mit mehr als 1.800.000 USD sein Finanzierungsziel von 300.000 USD bestimmt schon gründlich ausgelacht und es ist zu erwarten, dass in den verbleibenden 24 Tagen noch so manches Stretch Goal fallen wird.
