Hello guys and welcome to my Patreon page!
My name is Babis Giannios (aka 'babox games'), and I am a board game
designer!
I wish to present you my new design 'Archons of Magic' the print-and-play deck-building card game which you may download HERE

What am I doing?
I've been creating board games since my early childhood but I've been doing this professionally for 5 years. I started my career with 'Shadows over the Empire', my first board game that I've been designing for almost 8 years and I was happy to have had it published by Artipia Games. Two years ago came 'Kune v Lakia: a chronicle of a lapine divorce foretold' by LudiCreations.
This year, two more of my titles will be debuting. "Galactic Warlords" by Archona Games and "Alexandria: a Library in Cinders" by LudiCreations once more!
                         
 
        
                                                                                           
Up to this point I have over 10 projects that I am working on and I spend most of my time developing and play testing them intensely.
As far as the game designing is concerned, I am also writing articles regarding the subject in various Greek board gaming magazines and sites such as "Epitrapaizoume", "BGNews" and "GameHorizon.gr".
But my pride and joy is my personal page at baboxgames.com where you can find all of my work, my ongoing projects and a good deal of my blog posts where I narrate the joyous and challenging things I'm facing from a game's concept through its various stages of creation.

Why am I here?
I am on Patreon because I wish to share this exciting journey with you! You can experience firsthand all the fun and excitement of creating games, writing their concept ideas, fiddling with various mechanisms, play testing and finally preparing to present them to publishers and to a bigger audience!

But the main reason is that I wish to share with you a project that I've been working on for quite some time. It's called "Archons of Magic" and it is a free print-to-play living board game with cards set in the mythical world of Allangtoh!

What is "Archons of Magic"?
"Archons of Magic" is a living deck building card game for 2-5 players, depicting the intense conflict among devious spellcasters!
Each player forms their own deck consisting of unique cards!
To do so, each player chooses their own Mage and select the appropriate type of magic that that Mage can wield. Next, they select one of the cities that they wish to manipulate. These two form the players deck (half magic/ half city).
Once they prepare their decks, they pit themselves against each other into a glorious race for power!
Manipulating essences of magic, as well as the ones that shape up the world, each Mage employs plans of politicking, intrigue and warmongering to conquer each other. In their quest to absolute power, they will not hesitate to shape up the world and its forces!

What is different in that and why on Patreon?
This is where the "creating challenge" comes for me and you as well!
As you play the game with your friends and family, you will live intense moments of fun and excitement. You will possibly come up with different ideas, constructive criticism and precious feedback! So that, each month, you will be able to offer me your feedback and support, asking for various things concerning the game.
What if mythical dragons appeared in the land?
What if a cadre of assassins joined the mages?
What if a mechanism got replaced by a new one?
What if a new city and more factions entered the fray?
What if different types of magic emerged?

The questions and requests are endless! And as you command so shall I deliver! As there will be a small set of new cards offering a different gameplay experience, expanding your game to the destination that you wish to direct it!
In order to do that, all you need to do is pledge and answer the good deal of questions that I'll be posing in order to shape the game according to your own imagination by participating to the game's thread as well, offering your own insight and feedback.
In turn, I'll be honing my board game designing skill and you'll be getting an one-of-a-kind game which you'll shape yourself.
And in this amazing journey I won't be alone as I'll be having the amazing illustrator 'Krissorium' the amazing artist of 'Kune v Lakia' by my side, offering his unique and mystical artwork depicting the heroes and the lands of the game!

So without further ado, download the game HERE, read the rules and begin the conquest as an "Archon of Magic"!
And if you like it as well and you wish to support me, I would be more than honored if you pledged for the game in this page!
Thank you and see you in the game!
