Solo Mode overview

Hello everyone! After doing a lot of play testing we decided to explain a bit more how the Solo mode we unlocked during the campaign is going to work! 

In this game mode you will represent House Volarees and you will be in charge of defending your three cities by the threat of the ferocious Volfyirion all by yourself. 

The dragon is on a rampage and you will need to keep a cool head to defeat your vicious opponent at its worst. Are you ready to start an exhausting battle against the mighty dragon on your own? The fate of your cities depends on you!

One of the characteristics of the solo play is that the set up is similar to the standard game. Your three cities needs to have different values as in the 1 vs 1 mode, but in addition you need to remove from the game the cards that contain a "Move Volfyirion" icon, all the Perk cards, all Ploy cards and both Saboteur cards.

Your goal is to defeat Volfyirion, and you can do this either by spending 16 Knowledge points to subjugate it or spending 16 Battle points to defeat the beast. Either path you decide to pursue will result in winning the game.

A peculiarity of this mode is the presence of a new pile in your Playing area: the Rage Pile, which is formed during your turn. This pile is created drawing cards from your Asset Deck when certain conditions are met, like the entrance in game of a Wonder Card or the start of a new turn.

At the end of each turn, Volfyirion will make its move and the kind of cards that form the Rage Pile will decide what kind of actions it will perform. 

If you counter its actions carefully, you will be able to put it back on its lair and save your cities from its rage.

We don't want to reveal too much details yet, but we can assure that Volfyirion will be hard to defeat making this mode really challenging! Anyhow, soon we will share the Solo Mode complete rules with all of you, so stay tuned

Hello backers!

We wanted to let you know that you will receive the surveys in the next days

If you are familiar with how BackerKit operates, it will first send the survey to the 5% of backers as a test to check if everything works fine and then, if no issues arise, it will be sent to the rest of you. Either way, keep an eye on your inbox since everything should be out quickly!

It will not be necessary to create a Backerkit account to fill out the survey. Instead you will just need to click on the survey link you will receive in your email address and respond.

Survey ready!
Survey ready!

In BackerKit you will be asked to fill in all the fields regarding your address for shipping purposes and you will be able to pay the shipping fees to your region. Additionally, you will also be able to get any add-on items you like. If you want to upgrade your pledge to another level, you will have the chance to do this too on BackerKit!

We will leave the survey open for a while. You can modify your selection and your shipping address until we lock everything down and charge your cards. Don't worry, when we will be ready for lockdown we will make an update announcing it!

Here's every add-on available in the pledge manager:

Volfyirion is beyond every expectation!

Hey everyone!

We are at the end of this incredible adventure, wait... did we really just say that? It is unbelievable. First we launched this game and suddenly, in the blink of an eye, we found ourselves at the last day of this campaign. 

Thirty days have passed so fast and we could not be more filled with joy and gratitude towards our loyal community members! You have been there every step of the way and witnessed closely to this game's evolution

We all did it!
We all did it!

At first Volfyirion was just at its primary stage then it got better and better, Stretch Goal after Stretch Goal, and day after day you all helped us let it grow! Our aim was to create a game that would satisfy every type of player. That is why we chose to have so many player modes added with the Stretch Goals. 

The final game is really stunning, thus, feeling your appreciation is the best reward and we could not possibly ask for more!

Game components

Since we were able to unlock every Stretch Goal we came up with, among other things the final version of the game will have:

  • Bigger boxes to hold all the sleeved cards
  • Thicker cardboard for all the boxes
  • Spot UV finish
  • Upgraded quality Cards
  • Color blind friendly cards
  • Improved app with tons of features
  • Solo player mode
  • Four player mode
  • Co-op mode
  • Special new rules for the detachable Qoam Crystals
  • More than 17 Community Translations!
  • Screen Printed Volfyirion Token
  • Lot of new cards and artworks
  • Community Workshop Support
  • Much much more!

Jakub Artwork is here!

In addition we would like to share with you the final version of Jakub's artwork! Travis created a masterpiece as always! 

Jakub seems so proficient with his Qoam manipulation that he's able to use in combat two Qoam-arms and swords, that's really cool!

Late Pledge is already live!

The Late Pledge is live on BackerKit right now! This will allow everyone who missed the campaign to get a copy of the game at the standard Retail Price. It will be open until production ends and it will help us to avoid overstocking.

The Post Campaign Survey will instead come in the upcoming weeks!
