    Be a backer and a designer! “Whims” is all about, well, the whims of the dying king. Some of the king’s whims revolve around strategic, straightforward gameplay while others involve players to interact in more wacky, unusual ways that often have little or nothing to do with the usual game structure. Backers at this level receive one copy of the game plus the opportunity to design a whim card. This card will become one of the many ever-changing goals of the game! This is a fairly family-friendly game, and Venture Mountain Games must approve your card, but pretty much anything goes!

    You’ll probably never be the sovereign ruler of your own kingdom. No offense, but we just don’t see it happening for you. I mean, you’re probably pretty cool and all (you are looking at this page, so that definitely speaks in your favor), and we’re sure you’d make a fantastic monarch, but the chances of you discovering that your’re the long-lost heir of a dying king and being handed the keys to a grand palace filled with grandiose comforts is probably pretty small. But here’s your chance! You can forever and always be known to all who play this game as king or queen of all the known kingdom! If you back us at this level, you’ll not only receive a copy of the game, but you will have the supreme and unique honor of knowing that everyone who plays this game until the end of time will see your face, hear your name, and vie for the throne that you’ll vacate upon your imminent death! Send us your picture, and we will adorn our rulebook with your royal face. You will become our semi-titular king or queen! You will even be able to change the name of the character (I mean, we’re not really married to the name “Rolphius”). We reserve the right to approve any fictional names.
