Moons and Stars game pieces


An otherworldly strategy board game

OVER 300% overfunded on successful Kickstarter!

Once upon a time, Moons and Stars only existed in the imaginary world of Allfield.

Now one of Allfield’s most popular board games is available to play and is coming soon to a table near you!

Every part of the Moons and Stars game is handmade from natural materials in a primitive style by visual artist Ben Jerred.

If you are interested in getting your own Moons and Stars game even though the Kickstarter has ended, you may contact me at ben@benjerred.com - Once the Kickstarter pledges have been completed I will begin work on new orders.

Game in the Woods

Players ages 8 to 108 will love the fast-paced strategy and action, the quality of the natural materials, the mystery of the artistic style, and the price of this easy-to-learn game. They can even try the game themselves ahead of time, read the rules, or watch play-along videos!

Replayable fun and so many ways to play!

Gain victory by one of two paths: capturing all your opponent’s moons and stars, or reaching your opponent’s stone.

Each player’s 16 main game pieces are rolled like dice at the start, offering over 20,000 possible combinations of pieces!

Play on the rustic wood board with the campfire-hardened clay pieces and the stones from the shores of Lake Ontario-all kept safe in a hand-sewn canvas pouch.

Fun for friends and family, casual and hardcore gamers!

Moons and Stars is a fun and original option of connecting with others for a little while and playing in a non-tech, no-screen kind of way.

By becoming a backer of this project, you are creating an opportunity to make this game available to a special group of players - our Allfield family! Pledging supports and allows an independent artist to create positive and constructive games for player’s imaginations, strategic minds, and creative forces to grow.

And since this group is relatively small, backers are connecting with us, the game maker, and your feedback will come directly to us, directly from you. That makes you a key member of our Allfield family.

Moons and Stars is Crowd-Funded

Moons and Stars was created by Ben Jerred, developed by Jerred’s son, and brought to Kickstarter by Jerred’s wife and daughter. This game will be created in a limited quantity and will be available for a limited time on kickstarter to backers pledging $35.

Kickstarter is a safe and popular website where people can pledge to support creative projects. Kickstarter campaigns run for 30 days and are then over.

Since we are getting closer to our Kickstarter launch date, we are collecting emails to announce the event. Please sign up and I can let you know when the kickstarter event begins! Your emails are not used for any other reason or given away. I will be picking names from the list for giveaways.
