About

What is Basira? 

Basira is the first platform for creating and sharing new card- and tabletop-games! We want to give you the opportunity of creating the board- or cardgame you ever imagined and to play it with your friends. We will not stop here - we will give you an online platform, where you can share your new games and get new ideas from the community. And of course, you will be able to find new gamers and friends on the Basira platform!

We will launch four different games for free for you, each week one, beginning today with "Killed King". Click here to watch the first game-trailer.

 Check th updates to see the videos of upcomming games!

Basira Game Elements

Important information: The pictures shown are fotographs of prototypes, we made using filament 3D-printers. The quality will improve dramatically during production.

The Hexagon

The Hexagon is designed for giving you the freedom you need to create your board-game. The shape allows you to rebuild most of the existing games or create new ones.

The Hexagon-Upside

The upside is for placing structures from various brick-systems and accessories. Whatever you imagined to be in your game, you can build it here. Small houses, a boat, a character or a giant laser-gun? No problem!

The Hexagon-Downside

You don’t want to build anything, you just need a surface to park the game piece or customize it? Then just turn the hexagon around and be happy. We left you some space here to unload your characters.

You need more information or design on the plates? A desert with an oasis, mountains with dwarves or a field separated by a river? We give you all the space you need to create your game with your own individual design.

Next to that there is also a variety of basic-textures ready to be used as part of your creation. We will give you a choice of basic-textures, ready to use!

Or create your own, individual design. The hexagon is designed to ensure flexibility and as much possibilities as possible to bring your ideas to life. You are even able to build 3D-gameboards! Several Hexagons can be stacked above each other, creating a three-dimensional space for your game.

The downside is also needed to fit the magnets or link with bricks:

Stacking the Hexagons

By using ordinary bricks, you can build the hexagons on top of each other. This works, because the magnetic beds are the perfect designed to hold the building blocks in place. Of course, this is also possible with built-in magnets!

Magnetic Link

One clumsy move and the whole board-game is teared down? Not with Basira games! A magnetic link connects the Hexagons. Insert a magnet, clip the holder - done. The Magnets will rotate themselves into the correct position and your game board is stable – so stable, you can play even on the grass in a park or with clumsy people – your choice.

This is the result:

Using the Hexagons as walls

With built-in magnets, a new way to build your hexagons on top of each other is available. Use other magnets as walls on which you place another hexagon.

 

Magnetic Link

One clumsy move and the whole board-game is teared down? Not with Basira games! A magnetic link connects the Hexagons. Insert a magnet, clip the holder - done. The Magnets will rotate themselves into the correct position and your game board is stable – so stable, you can play even on the grass in a park or with clumsy people – your choice.

With magnets used hexagons will still be stackable. If you don’t want to use this amazing feature, you can connect the Hexagons without the magnets as well by using a brick. 

The Triangle

The triangle is made for giving you new possibilities within game-board construction. With a triangle you are able to create a range of new designs and complex structures. It also offers an upper-side for various brick-systems.

 


Gamer 

Do you like to play Games with your friends all night long? You love card- and tabletop-games? We think, you will love Basira! With the Basira platform, the Hexagon, the Triangle (look for more information in the section “the Hexagon” and “the Triangle”) and our online platform, where you can purchase or get new content for free (depends on the chosen games) you will get a new dimension of tabletop-gaming! Use the equipment of games you already have and scroll through new Basira-games created by the Community! Become a part of the community and help developers to improve their Games. To get started you will get (at least, sneaky surprise incoming) 4 games for free! 

Developer 

You are a creative mind, but you are lacking of the possibilities to realize all of your ideas for great games? You are afraid of logistic, production and marketing issues? We think, you will love Basira! The modular game-system Basira gives you the opportunity to build a complete new variety of games. You neither need production know-how nor complicated marketing strategies. You can totally focus on developing your game. The compatibility to various brick-systems (like LEGO, Megablocks, Kre-O, etc) gives you some extra features for new tabletop-games. You are able to share or sell your own tabletop-game. Whatever you publish, you remain the owner of the product. The prevention of idea-theft and trolling is the reason why we have to set up a small one-time fee (it will be 50€/50$) for the upgrade to the "developer-account". We have to check contents manually and punish trolls, which are spamming the platform and idea-thefts effectively.

Basira Online 

Our online platform offers several areas to exchange about games and promote your ideas: 

Basira Gamestore 

Explore, what the community made for you, or add your own Games here. Get the game you love and help the developers with your feedback. Developers can present their games here and sell it or give it for free for the community.

Basira Designer

You want to create cards for your game or create a card-game on your own? With our free online-software we can give you what you need to achieve your goal. Be creative and feel free to design incredible Games you will be proud of! For playing your favorite card-game, you do not even need to wait - just print it at home!

Basira Social 

Find new friends - We also want to help you to have a great time with great people. Thus, our platform offers plenty of space to connect and exchange with people that love games just as much as you do. It is designed for you to organize local tabletop-game parties and events. 

Basira Shop 

Here you are able to buy equipment for the games you want to play. Get the Hexagons, the Triangles, magnets and accessories you need here. Basira Info All you need to know is located on the Basira info website. Come here to get updates and check the FAQ.

Basira hall of fame 

All Backers will become immortal on this site. We want to express our gratitude by displaying your name on this website as long as the internet exists. 

Strech goals

Roadmap

We are planning to ship the chosen packages to you beginning in August 2018 and finishing in October. You can make great gifts for christmas next year!

All our products are manufactured in Germany, so you can rely on a very high quality.

Outlook 

While creating our vision of Basira we had many ideas. Some of these are perfect for the Kickstarter-campaign others still need some final touches. Nevertheless we want to show you the direction we are heading with Basira and what it might become in the future. 

Fantastic plastic 

Plastics is a fantastic material. You can create wonderfull things out of it – like our Basira boards. On the other hand it is a shame, many of plastics are being dumped in the oceans and becoming a threat to animals and plants. Together we can chance this! We want to take a part in cleaning the oceans. We will accomplish this with our “fantastic plastic” program. We are planning to realize this goal together with the company WFO – waste free oceans, by using their upcycled plastics in the Basira production. 

www.wastefreeoceans.org

We are planning to sell a special ocean-edition built out of the plastic we got from the oceans. Help to achieve this goal as well! Make fantastic plastic real. 

Special equipment 

Special equipment will give you various opportunities you can use to create incredible games. Basira has so much space for new figures to make your games better and better. Imagine you have dragons, tanks or other special shapes working perfectly with the Basira bricks? There are so many possibilities! We don’t want to publish these figures now, because we focus on the basics. If this campaign is successful, more content will follow.

Risks and challenges

There are always risks.
We are of course dependent on:
• Suppliers (plastics, parts, magnets etc.)
• Service providers (logistics, packaging, transport & shipping)
Our partners fall back on many years of experience. Therefore, we do not expect that there will be insoluble complications. We are very broadly positioned and have specialists in every area.
Our team of engineers, programmers, plastics specialists, business economists and designers is well acquainted with the manufacturing and development processes, plastic injection moulding and packaging machines. In this way, we can compensate for breakdowns and produce our products completely by ourselves.
We have several years of experience in the realization of large-scale projects.
That is why we think it is time to start our own company.
