I LOVE GAMES!
For a long time I've wanted to make a board game and finally I've got round to doing it! With the help from a few friends we've developed a prototype board game which works really well and has been played by over 50 people, all of whom thoroughly enjoyed it.
A talented graphic designer I know is currently working on turning my prototype into a work of art, however we all know designers don't like working for free and so the backing from this campaign will really help me speed up the completion of the redesign. I've already sourced a professional manufacturer who can produce a complete boxed game for around £15 per box. (min order 30x pieces).
I'm not doing this to make money. I just want to make a really quality board game that will be enjoyed by many.
This is a true kickstarter campaign so please back me and you too can help kickstart my concept into becoming something beyond my capabilities!
2-6x player game where one person plays as the guards (6-14x pieces) and all additional players play as different gangs (5x pieces) racing to escape from prison. Play a variety of rules depending on how long you wish the game to last (first to escape, set time limit, etc).
Gang members roll dice to move around the prison in the attempt to gain Bronze, Silver, Gold cards from certain rooms. These cards are required to escape through various routes out of the prison. The guards aim is to stop the gangs from escaping by capturing/killing gang members while outside of the central safe zone. Guards gain cards when capturing prisoners or rolling a 2,3,4.
Bronze (gangs) - Equipment; grappling hooks, pipe bombs, fake i.d.'s, etc.
Silver (gangs) - Bonus; weapons, drugs, armour, etc.
Gold (gangs) - Super Bonus; vehicles, sick weapons, secret tunnels, etc.
Bronze (guard) - Basic weapons, boosts, back-up, etc.
Gold (guard) - Advanced weapons, vehicles, special defence, etc.
This game is easy to play yet difficult to master. Tactics and timing play a big part of the game, however there is a strong element of luck which evens the playing fields.
This game is NOT designed for children, or the easily offended as it promotes the use of specific weapons and drugs to aid gang members in escaping from federal prison. The content has been written as tasteful/humorous as possible given the theme.
Risks and challenges
The game is already designed and working well. I need the money to pay for manufacture. The designer has promised to redraw my game if I get the backing to manufacture as he too wants a finished copy.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
