Learn About Our Project:

Tao Long is a circular abstract-like game in which each action taken leaves different options for your foe.

On it, each player controls a dragon striving to diminish the other whilst bound together by the Tao - you will manipulate tokens on a special board in order to activate your dragon, leaving that same board to be manipulated by your opponent on their turn.  

Among customizable scenarios and increasingly profound modes, both dragons will move, attack, block each other's way and seek dominance. At the end, there can be only one... That is, at least until tides of change come once again.

Pledges at Octo Studio counts towards the Stretch Goals!

  • Bringing Tao Long to reality will only be possible with your support
  • Make the game better for everyone; stretch goals will enhance the final quality and content of the game, the more we fund, the more we can upgrade.  
  • Get exclusive kickstarter components like the metal token and receive special items for free that will also be available after the campaign ends for an additional cost.
  • During the campaign your opinion and constructive feedback will help to shape and improve the game.  
  • Get more value of what you pledge and a competitive discounted shipping rate
  • Obtain deluxe and collector editions that will not be available in distribution. 

This project is retailers friendly. We are offering the Kickstarter version of the game during the campaign to game stores. We treat retailer backers just like any other backer in that they will receive their rewards before we release the regular retail games into distribution.

We have been working on a system to manage better our retailers network. These are the advantages of affiliating to ThunderGryph Games:

  • With your purchase, receive our game's "Tournament pack" with promos and prizes for your in-store demos and tourneys. 
  • Get your store listed in our website on the "where to buy" map of retailers (Starting on February)
  • Get competitive shipping rates
