About

The basic mechanism of the game is straight forward and we are proud to have captured the rules in only three pages. During your turn you can choose one of two actions:   

  • Option 1: Buy a new building card, your turn ends. 
  • Option 2: Play a building card from your hand. You then build a warehouse on the corresponding number thereby founding or expanding an enterprise. You receive the cash value of the enterprise you expanded/founded and are able to purchase or sell two stocks to/from the bank.

For two player games we have a couple of variations on the game rules and one of the stretch goals will be a two player board printed on the back of the main board.  

The detailed game rules: 

By supporting us, you're making it possible to add extras! Although we have already opted in for many 'premium' options, there are always additions that can be made to give the game just that little extra edge. Some of our later stretch goals will include new roofing types for the warehouses and a two player board.  

We have a good list of stretch goals that we will publish as goals are hit, but we're of course open to all suggestions. So do leave comments with suggestions!

The estimated delivery is October 2018, thereby ensuring backers have the game well before the holiday season starts.  

We have arranged EU, US and Australia friendly shipping, ensuring that these areas should not incure extra charges! Shipping costs depend on the region you are in, your exact figure will be shown when you pledge but a quick overview:

  • EU €3-10
  • USA (lower 48)€10
  • Australia €18
  • Rest of the world €19-45

 "It has the same euro-mechanic feel that you would get when you play Ticket to Ride or New York 1901" - Barry (Board Games Everybody Should 

"Stock market broken into simple mechanics. Investing and growing companies up to the exciting moment of merging them and having your stocks come out on top." - Alex and Peat (Hunter&Cron) 

"A healthy mix of luck and strategy..." and "it is an enjoyable game and I love the relatively simple rules" - Bastiaan Nox (Nox' Spellenzolder)

"You are visually growing the city of Amsterdam. It’s such a fantastic feeling to go up in the air stacking levels and build wider with your physical presence to creep to a merger ever so slowly." - Marlon and Erna (El Crosso - a boardgame life)  

Jolly Dutch Productions is a new game publisher, set up by Alexander and Arnold in the Netherlands. We combine our love for (board) gaming and entrepeneurial spirit to develop new games, specifically looking to bring together families and friends for a jolly evening. Having spent many months (blind) play testing, we are proud of Chartered: The Golden Age as it stands.  

Henk-Jan and Peter from Treffend&Co had the challenge to turn our concepts and ideas into beautiful artwork in a matter of months. 

Risks and challenges

Over the course of several years, Alexander and Arnold developed Chartered: The Golden Age to the fully designed and production-ready game it is today.

Despite it being the first game developed by Jolly Dutch Productions, Alexander and Arnold have worked with one of the largest board game producers in Europe (based in south Germany) to ensure all obstacles are taken away and classic Kickstarter pitfals are avoided. The designs of all elements have been thoroughly tested and checked. In the same spirit, shipping has been arranged with a veteran Kickstarter project fullfilment company based in the UK.

We just need to raise the funds and place the production order! We will do everything we can to ensure on-time delivery and keep you up to date on our production and shipping processes, also informing you of any unforseen hiccups.
