About

(*AR = Augmented Reality)

Mr. FunFairs island
Mr. FunFairs island

Luna Park Word is an idea born out of a father's desire to create a board game for his young daughters, almost five years ago. The kids grew up and so did the game. The white paper was replaced by a high quality illustrated board and the coins , which were used to represent the kids gave their initial place to well-designed teenager sketches which eventually turned into some nice miniatures. We revised the rules and added gameplay features to make the game even more solid and interesting. After countless nights of playing Luna Park World head to head here in JinxSoft, we decided that it was too good and too addictive to keep it for ourselves. During the last six months, we have been having more than a hundred gameplay tests from various age groups to ensure the potential of our endeavour. So here we are asking for your backing and support to improve and produce one of the most fun games you will ever play!

Click the banner to download the basic rules of our game!

First comes the Competitive mode. In this mode each player chooses one of the teen heroes and competes against his friends in a fast paced duel of wits and will. The goal of this mode is to collect more keys and more trophies as well as unlock more games and rides than the competitors. The players also have three potions in their inventory, each of them granting a different boon. 

The second mode is a co-operative one, we call ‘Mayhem’.This is because up to 8 players can participate in this breathtaking yet unforgiving mode. The players choose among the six heroes or the six guardians (each one with his unique special ability) and participate in a chaotic race against the other team. The teens try to unlock all the games and rides of the park and the guardians to stop and arrest them!  

Regarding the different movement modes. Let's be honest. We all love dice rolling. I mean rolling a dice is highly addictive even if we do it for no reason at all. Taking that under consideration, our board game has the classic dice rolling movement system. You roll a dice and you move as many squares as indicated by it (unless you get on a trap...or a guardian...or you are eaten by a piranha! I am sure you got the point by now). Apart from the high randomness dicerolling can offer, we wanted a second system that will provide a different way to move specially for those that prefer a more strategical way of play than betting on a dice. That is why we added the movement cards. These cards have a number on them and the player decides which card to activate as he sees fit.

The last mode and - needless to say - our pride is the Campaign mode. You may choose a teen hero and lead him through a series of quests and stages in a grand adventure full or perils and rewards. Having been influenced by great adventure movies of our youth like Goonies, Neverending Story, The Labyrinth and many more, we were forced to have a long debate among ourselves regarding the design of the campaign mode of Luna Park World. Of course someone might say that the aforementioned movies were childish and we would agree to a point, but nobody can deny the fact that they managed to give an adventure feeling full of mischief and suspense and those are the elements we aim to provide to everyone willing to visit our little island.

So what is the campaign mode after all?

The campaign mode is a two players' game mode that unfolds the real story of Luna Park World: Island. One of the players takes the role of a hero (or heroes depending on the stage) and the other that of the guards and MrFunfair. We could say that the second player is more like a “gamemaster” actually, guiding the young hero through a series of tasks. The Campaign consists of seven stages, each with unique mechanics which are quite easy to grasp and various goals that make the game interesting and addictive. At the end of each successful stage MrFunfair awards a couple of Woins (which is the token currency of the island). These Woins can be spent by purchasing magic filters that bestow several advantages. Another aspect of the campaign that we loved was the influence player's actions and choices have. For example if in a given stage a player manages to collect all the necessary items then his next stage will be a lot easier. Of course the opposite is also quite possible.
