Loot and Recruit!

Created by Vile Genius Games

Loot & Recruit is a deck-building game that brings a twist to the genre through its stacking mechanism, dual currency system, and PvP elements. Become a contestant in a crazy Goblin festival as you compete for the title of Goblin King. During the festival, you will add new cards to your deck, recruit Goblins for victory points, attack other players, and hire minions to perform special actions. Do you have what it takes to loot and recruit well enough to claim the throne for yourself?

Hey Everyone,

All files have been sent over to the factory and we have not received an eproof as of today. We have been told by the factory representative that the first eproof should be here by tomorrow or the beginning of next week.

Thank you for your continued patience.

Manufacturing Update (December 27)
8 months ago – Thu, Dec 27, 2018 at 06:57:53 PM

Hey everyone!

Hope everyone has had a great holiday season and we just wanted to give you a quick update on how things are going. Not a whole lot has changed but we want to keep y’all in the loop.  

All art files are completed and have been sent to the manufacturer. We hope to have an eproof back by the end of January so we can move forward with manufacturing. After speaking with the manufacturer today, we received conformation that they have all the files and they are moving towards eproofing. We hope to have all the eproofs by the end of the first week of January.  

Once things get rolling, we hope to have this game in your hands by April 1st. However, because of manufacturing overseas some time delays are possible, but when we know, you’ll know!  

Thanks for your continuing support and patience,  

Screech Dragon Studios

Hey everyone!


First off, we want to let you know that Screech Dragon Studios has acquired Vile Genius Games and this is why you haven't heard anything about this amazing game in a few months. All projects will be fulfilled and completed in due time. So now we're here now to give you an update on the goings on!

Manufacturing Update

Hello all you Looters out there,

It’s been awhile, but after dealing with a lot of personal issues over the last few months things are back to normal. I won’t go into all the details, but let’s just say if I were to write everything that’s transpired over the last few months it would be longer than War and Peace.

However, what you want to hear about is the status of the game, so let’s go over some key points.

Files Complete & Manufacturing 

After Gen Con we were ready to send all the files over for manufacturing, but our updated price quote for the game came back way higher than original estimations. So, we started the process of talking with other manufacturers to see if we could get the price back to where we were originally estimating. Luckily, we were able to get the price to where we wanted, and manufacturing is ready to begin. Once we get an E-proof from the manufacturer we’ll let you know.

If everything goes smoothly from here on out we’re estimating to have the games in your hands in January. We originally planned to have the game in your hands this past summer, so we’re well aware we missed the mark on delivery. However, we thank you for your patience on this process and obviously, the delays are not ideal for anyone.

Screech Dragon Studios and Vile Genius Games Merger 

One important thing that did transpire over the last few months was the merger between Vile Genius Games and Screech Dragon Studios. One of the biggest impacts this has is it provides us additional resources to ensure the games we make get to you quicker.

As part of the merger, Screech Dragon Studios will be the official publisher for Loot & Recruit. This won’t impact the game in any way, other than you’ll see the Screech Dragon Studios logo on the gamebox instead of the Vile Genius Games logo.

We will continue to improve our communication and do our best to keep you informed of the status of the game.

As always thank you for your support!

- Mark

Sneak peek at some Components
about 1 year ago – Tue, Jul 31, 2018 at 10:58:19 PM

Since we're component complete, I figured I would share some sneak peeks at how everything turned out.

Boxes (not to scale)

Game Board & Player Mats (Player Mats were unlocked from additional funds during the pledge manager)

Cards with Joe Dunn's Artwork (we previewed some of his sketches during a past update, but we never showed you all the final versions)

Chaos Expansion Event Cards (these cards will show you why it's called the Chaos Expansion)

Rulebooks

Chaos Expansion Rulebook (1 MB)

Now there's always the possibility some small tweaks may be made between now and the time manufacturing starts, but what you see here is about as close to the real thing as we're all going to get until we all get the game in our hands.

Once the files are at the manufacturer we'll have a better understanding on when we expect fulfillment to occur. I don't know about you all, but I'm getting really excited!
