Rise of Tribes

Created by Breaking Games Team

Rise of Tribes is a 2-4 player board game. You are a prehistoric people, looking to grow in number, gather resources and lead your people to victory. Build villages, discover advancements and control territories to win! Design by Brad Brooks (Letter Tycoon), published by Breaking Games. Thanks to Kickstarter, this game is full of upgraded components, more art and epic bonus content. For a limited time, we're offering a reduced price on both standard and deluxe editions. We hope you enjoy Rise of Tribes!

Latest Updates from Our Project:

about 2 years ago – Tue, Jun 27, 2017 at 01:16:59 AM

Welcome new tribe members! Thank you for joining our tribe!

Only 7 photos from the final Social Stretch Goal! 4 Leader Meeples for both the standard and deluxe editions will be incredible!

Predators Approach!

Our next Stretch Goal after the Chieftain Event will involve a few art additions! To start this process, we've put together a poll on our Facebook Group to determine which predator would be added to one of the basic tiles.

This doesn't have a mechanic tied to it, though it will open up some ideas for scenario plays. Plus, I just love that it will add to the dangerous, wild feel of the theme.

If you share the poll in Facebook, we'll count your vote twice! Tell us in the poll (won't count anywhere else) if you'd rather see a Cave Bear roaming the mountains, a Rutiodon hunting in the lake, or Dire Wolves stalking in the forest!

Gathering Wood
about 2 years ago – Sat, Jun 24, 2017 at 01:29:00 AM

Welcome new tribe members! We've grown over 3000 tribe members to our campaign! Well done all of you who are spreading the word!

Two Tribes Meet

It only makes sense with our love of wood components that Breaking Games join with Dog Might Games in creating some fantastic pieces for Rise of Tribes! As an add-on, any backer can get these Exclusive saber tooth tiger dice rolling trays!  

You can only get this custom Rise of Tribes piece through this campaign! Everyone will want to play Rise of Tribes when they see this hanging on your game room wall!

Just add the price of the add-on you want to your current tier. When surveys are sent, we'll ask you which ones you purchased.

The Component Collector Tiles

Dog Might Games has also added Rise of Tribes specific tiles for their Component Collector campaign running right now! Mammoths, Saber Tooth Tigers, and Villages are available now!

They only have 5 days left on their campaign, so if you want these exclusive tiles, head over there and select the type of wood and tiles you want. They are not available through our campaign and won't be after their campaign ends!

Mammoth Spotted!

Yep! You guys did so well with this campaign on the first day, we went ahead and started getting the Mammoths created so that we could show you guys what's coming!

It never gets old seeing games and their pieces being made. If you love how these look and you haven't upgraded to the Deluxe edition, I highly recommend it.

Stretch and Social Goal Update

We're only $4K away from reaching the Abandoned Village stretch goal! 37 more backers and we'll get the Tar Pits! We're looking forward to hitting those very soon!

Tame the Mammoth, Tame the World
about 2 years ago – Tue, Jun 20, 2017 at 09:39:34 PM

We broke the 500 BGG subscribers Social Stretch Goal! That means...

Tame the Mammoth is unlocked!

On the Mammoth Event card you have the option to tame the mammoth rather than hunt it. Send four or more tribe members with three food resources and the mammoth is yours! Gain the respect of all other tribes, and 2 VP, but if the tribe members escorting the mammoth are ever wiped out, you lose respect, and the 2 VP.

One Step Closer to the Tar Pits!

While I was typing up the update, we hit 1000 Facebook Group members! If you're not a member yet, come join us and tell us what you think of the campaign so far!

That means we only need to achieve one more Social Stretch Goal to gain the Tar Pits! I've just seen the almost finished art for this, so I can't wait to show it to you guys when you achieve it!

How do we achieve the next closest Social Stretch Goal? Well, we're only 208 backers away from the Tar Pits! So, if you'll share this Facebook post or retweet this tweet, maybe we can grow our tribe!

Abandoned Village!

The next Stretch Goal is the Abandoned village! Excitingly enough, working to gain more backers for the Tar Pits will also drive us closer to this stretch goal!

The Abandoned Village event allows each player the opportunity to acquire a village in a hex they control for just three resources (one food, wood and stone).

Tribes Like it Hot

Another Stretch Goal down! The Social Stretch Goals are moving along quickly as well. We just reached the 25 photos of Meeples in Nature, so that means we only have one more social goal to unlock the Taming the Mammoth Event! Here's how close we are to the other social goals:

There are still photography goals to reach as well! A few clarifications on those:

It's best if the photos are posted to places outside of our Facebook Group as well, to spread the word. You can even post to the group and then share it on your wall so that others outside the group see it. Tweet or post using #riseoftribes please!

The Breaking Games Shelfies may include a shot of your game shelf with any Breaking Games title you own.

We'd love to see your happy faces in the game night photos!

The Desert Oasis Unlocked!

The Desert Oasis tile is for 'scenario play' or optional use. Suggested play is to replace one of the game Lake tiles with this one. It will count as a Lake for all card goals and events. For this game, a tribe must have 3 members to gather food on the desert oasis tile. Tribal conflict is sure to break out over water in this variant!

Our Frozen Past

A while back we unlocked the Glacier tile. We wanted to get the final art in before telling you about this amazing addition. One of the most important things to know is, it's a new promo for the First Print Exclusives! This means that, like the Wild Land tile, the first print run will include all Kickstarter games (both Standard and Deluxe). Once we have to print the game again, these exclusives will not be included.

The Glacier will be a 'scenario play' or optional tile, not associated with the core game or events. Suggested play is to place it on a Mountain tile at the start of the game. That mountain cannot support villages and only 1 stone may ever be gathered here while icy conditions remain.

During the game, any time a player takes an action with double suns in the dice pool, place a stone on the glacier. After 5 stones have accumulated, the ice has melted and the lush mountain beneath is revealed. The 5 stone markers are now available for the first tribe that gathers in this new land.

Some of our team are still coming back from Origins and recovering, but we'll give you an update on how that went soon!
