I have been developing word games
for seven years. Every time they have been presented to various
groups such as family, friends, students, seniors, business partners or
businesses, they’ve been a huge success. However, every attempt to get support
from newspapers or magazine editors has failed.
Strongly convinced by the THEMATIX game’s potential to be very entertaining, I am officially launching this new, original, never seen before word game to the Kickstarter community.
THEMATIX word games may be created on any theme, subject or could even be about current affairs. The games are entertaining and educational; they represent an interesting challenge. Rise to this challenge by choosing one or all three THEMATIX games offered. I am also offering a personalized game option, where I develop a custom game based on information that you provide (see more information bellow)
THE THREE AVAILABLE THEMATIX FOR THE LAUNCH
Oscars – Countries of the world – Calendar and time, English or French
The Academy Awards, or "Oscars", is an annual American awards ceremony hosted by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to recognize excellence in cinematic achievements in the film industry as assessed by the Academy's voting membership.
The Academy has been recognizing award recipients since 1929 and in 2016 we will be witnessing the 88th Academy Awards.
The Thematix game ''Oscars'' is our way of paying a tribute to the world's greatest achievers in motion pictures.
With all the possibilities, it was easy to create a game for the Oscars, but it was very difficult to choose which names to include. Films that have won more than 10 Oscars were chosen as well as some other popular classic movies. We have also included famous actors, actresses and directors that have won a minimum of two awards.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION; All major category winners of the 2016 Ceremonies will be included in the game.
This game will certainly challenge your memory and your cinematic knowledge. Try to complete the grid without doing any research, let’s see how you do!
COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD
As of January 2016, the United Nations was comprised of 193 countries. Countries can be classified in different ways, either by their population or by the size of their economy. These two criterias may change significantly over time.
In the Thematix game ''Countries of the World'', the 50 largest countries are listed. The size of a country or the vastness of it’s territory generally only has small variations over time. So, here’s a game that will allow you to put your knowledge of world geography into practice!
CALENDAR AND TIME
This year, at the beginning of February, American and European scientists made a stunning discovery! For the first time they were able to see and measure gravitational waves. This is yet again proof of Albert Einstein’s theories put forth a century ago. The cosmic events that were observed were at a distance of 1.3 billion light years away. Can you imagine the distance of a billion light years, the length of time? What is time? All of these important and significant discoveries will one day tell us that time is malleable.
Until then, challenge yourself in the Thematix game Calendar & Time. Today, what are the things that make us think of time, help us measure time, help us tell time or help us describe time?
A subtle and challenging version of the game, difficult but entertaining! Enjoy!
YOUR PERSONNALIZED THEMATIX
First, choose a theme; be precise because your theme becomes your THEMATIX word game title and all the words must relate to the theme. For example, let’s pretend that you are part of the BARBER FAMILY. Evidently, the word BARBER will be listed in the word game. Make a list of everyone’s first name in your family, then include their spouses’ names. You may want to include the city where you or your family comes from, the street or streets where you lived, your grandfather’s surname, the name of the family business, even the name of the family pet, etc.… In the end, all the words must relate to your family, the BARBER FAMILY. Know that the short words will also be very useful. Ensure that all the spelling is accurate because unfortunately your spelling mistakes will be duplicated into your THEMATIX word game. Start by using an Excel document to list all of the words related to the theme of your choice in one column; we will be emailing you with instructions on how to submit your words selection to us.
The following theme suggestions may inspire you...
Workplace, your city/state, main streets, known businesses or banners, parks, attractions, 1994 New York Rangers, school years, members of your swimming club or any other interesting topics!
Risks and challenges
Risks are minimal with the THEMATIX project. First of all, no suppliers are involved. Secondly, I design, create, correct and adapt the games; there are no other parties involved. As well, there are no risks associated to shipping and handling. The games will be emailed to the backers.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
