Missing parts

Even though we regularly check the comments that are left on the Kickstarter page, it is best if you have something missing in your copy of the game to please write us at

We are really sorry that some of the copies had components that were missing, but Cavern Tavern is a big game with 250+ components, so mistakes in packing can happen. But, we hope that those who have contacted us received the replacements promptly.

Rules questions

We’ve prepared documents with Frequently Asked Questions and Cards Clarification that will help better interpret the rulebook.

Top 10 Board Games on Kickstarter 2016

We are extremely proud to inform you that Tantrum House has named Cavern Tavern at number 6 on their Top 10 Board Games that were on Kickstarter in 2016!

The Future of Cavern Tavern

Some of you have been asking us if we had plans for expansions of Cavern Tavern. We admit that we are bouncing off ideas at the moment, but we can’t say exactly when this will happen. The more demand this game has from retail stores the bigger the chance that the expansion will happen soon. So if you want to help us, please rate Cavern Tavern on BGG. The more ratings we have, the more visible the game will become to the retail stores.

Here is a link where you can rate Cavern Tavern.

Rise to Nobility

We are super thrilled to announce the next chapter in The Five Realms, Rise to Nobility!

Of course, we are again partnering with The Mico for the artwork. The game will be worker (dice) placement game, but with new and unique twists on the dice placement mechanics.

Here is the short description of the game.

Five years after the events of Cavern Tavern, where the fragile peace has been brokered between The Five Realms, the High Queen Tabita Orestes has ordered a new city to be built. The city of Caveborn.

Caveborn will be the capital of the Five Realms, where all the races will learn to live together in harmony, with the main purpose to bring them closer and prevent another war.  

The Queen, needs to keep the alliance between the races and make sure Caveborn is peaceful and prosperous. To that end, a Settlers Council has been formed with its chairman Berk the Town Clerk who is getting old and needs a successor. Are you that person?  

Rise to Nobility is a worker (dice) placement game set in the same fantasy world as Cavern Tavern.

The players own a small piece of land in the newly built city.

Your job is to rise from anonymity, make your way to the title of lord and take over the head seat at the Stone Council.

You will achieve this by upgrading your land and increasing its value, satisfying the demands of the settlers’ council, attract and house as much settlers as you can, accommodate their needs, find them jobs, help them develop from apprentices to guild masters, thus insuring you have people on high places all around the city.

If you want to receive more frequent updates of this game, about the development process, playtesting sessions, artwork from the game, please like the Rise to Nobility facebook page.

Also, you can join the group about the Five Realms, where we discuss Cavern Tavern and The Future of The Five Realms.
