So sorry... this game is SOLD OUT 😢

Rise to Nobility Deluxe Edition (SO SWEET), Beyond Expansion, the metal coins, and the Night Mode booster pack! Game over.

The game that started it all for me!

Rise To Nobility Deluxe was the game that made me a Final Frontiers groupie. At the time (2017) there was no Upstart Boardgamer, LLC… and I had just entered the hobby. Sometimes that timeline blows my mind… haha.  Anyway, now 2 years later, I’ve had a chance to meet Toni, Maja, and the team from Final Frontiers twice at Essen Spiel and I carry their games in my shop! Wild! ???

As I’ve said before… when the games are awesome and the publishers are wonderful people… it’s a wonderful thing. Now, arguably, I haven’t actually met a publisher who wasn’t a solid and fun human being… but sometimes things just click ?

The ”I want it ALL” package

This package includes the deluxe version of the Rise to Nobility core game, the “Beyond” expansion and the metal coin add-on, as well as the Night mode character pack!! I mean… you know me… I HAVE to have the metal coins no matter the cost! Speaking of cost… I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised to see the price point on this combo 😉

Dice Worker Placement!

This is absolutely my favorite board gaming mechanic… so it is no wonder that I love this game. In my defense… any time I brought this to the gaming table everyone who played ALSO loved it… but I digress ?

Roll the dice… place the dice in the action spaces on the board… and WIN! Haha… well, winning might not be THAT easy.. but still. One fun twist in Rise to Nobility involves what I call the “reputation ceiling.”

Roll as you see fit, but when you place the dice into the action spaces you may only place dice up to the total value of your reputation. So, if your reputation was 12 and you rolled 6, 4, 4, 3, 5 you could play any combination of dice that equaled 12 or less. Ohhhhhhhhh… I LOVE this!!

Time Crunch at Upstart Boardgamer

In an effort to get the newest games listed, I won’t go into any additional detail on the game play as we all understand the basics of dice worker placement (smile) and, I need to get a ton of new games into the shop and somehow continue to prepare for retirement and attend to the needs of my Navy day job…. ⚓️

<calls therapist, calms down, continues writing>

… but I WILL provide the following links to give you a solid idea of what you’re getting into. Trust me – this is an AMAZING game with great artwork, an engaging and immersive theme, a hoard of solid wooden bits, and yeah… those metal coins! 😉  Win, win, win, and WIN!

Quick note from the publisher regarding any missing or damaged pieces inside the game boxes

The copy of Beyond that I picked up for myself didn’t have any missing or damaged components, but in a recent update the publishers noted that if anyone was having this issue they had only to reach out to Final Frontiers and it would be taken care of directly. [Side note – I already had the Deluxe Rise to Nobility core game from the first Kickstarter… so I can’t comment on my copy of that from this production run ?]

If you are in this situation and need to reach out to them, please explain that you purchased the game from Upstart Boardgamer. If you run into any snags, PLEASE reach out to me directly via email, Facebook, phone, etc. I want to be certain you are taken care of!

Here is the publisher statement from the Kickstarter update:

Missing components

First of all, we would like to apologize if your reward is damaged or have some missing components. Unfortunately these things happen and we can’t do anything to prevent it.

However, we want to assure you that you will receive replacements for anything that is missing or damaged. Just write us an email at and we’ll sort the issue asap.

As I said… Final Frontiers is a wonderful team!

So sorry... this game is SOLD OUT 😢


Rise to Nobility and BeyondRise to Nobility Deluxe Edition and Beyond Expansion PLUS the metal coins – of course!

Five years after the events of Cavern Tavern, where a fragile peace was brokered between The Five Realms, the High Queen Tabita Orestes has ordered a new city to be built. The city of Caveborn will be the capital of the Five Realms, a place where all the races will learn to live together in harmony, with the main purpose being to bring them closer and prevent another war.

The Queen needs to keep the alliance between the races and ensure that Caveborn is peaceful and prosperous. To that end, a Settlers Council has been formed with Berk the Town Clerk as its chairman — but Berk 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. You each own a small piece of land in the newly built city, and 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 can achieve this by upgrading your land and increasing its value, satisfying the demands of the settlers’ council, attracting and housing as many settlers as you can, accommodating their needs, finding them jobs, and helping them develop from apprentices to guild masters, thus insuring you have people in high places all around the city of Caveborn.

Rise to Nobility: Beyond

In Rise to Nobility: Beyond you will collect and guard precious Relics, give offerings to the Timeless Temple, and help the kingdom’s Elders so they can grant you favors or permanently win their endorsement in your path to become a Noble citizen of the Five Realms.

During that time you will have access to the Realms precious mineral, the Rock Rose, which will present you the opportunity to trade it for Goods, Coins, earn you the Queen’s reputation and more, but like anything else that is precious, it comes in limited quantities so be careful how you spend it.

Rise to Nobility: Beyond introduces new ways to score points, a twist to the reputation mechanic and tableau building aspect that adds high replayability to the game.
