About

I Saga, will make a boardgame about me - Jag! What could possibly go wrong! :D

I have done board game designs before but this is my first real published game

THE VISION

It will feature several different mechanics, and be fun, easy as well as clever in its gameplay. You will be able to act and live as a version of me in the game. How great would that not be since my life is perfect, and so am I \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/

Briefly about the game as the design is now (very early in the process) 

This is also shown in may first update but a few people asked me to put it in the description which sounded like a good idea. So, here it is.

JAG means "I" in Swedish. (I am from Sweden). JAG will be a social and fun game, to some extent a party game. But also a game that encourages creativity. That inspires others to design their own versions of it :) The base game will be about me, but there will also be instructions on how to make a version of the game about another JAG, some one else. This could be you, or your friend (birthday present, graduation gift, marriage gift) or someone else that you want to make a version of JAG about (Madonna, Ghandi, Ada Lovelace, Lagertha or anyone really... it can even be a good history teaching tool... this came to my mind just now as I wrote). So when I write Me below it could be replaced by any other person that the game is about. 

 As a player you will get a persona that is a version of Me. This give you a little perk that will give you a reason to focus on one of the challenges themes since that will give you some extra points The challenges are (as of now) Questions (About me/the person) Charades Drawing Explenations The idea is to divide My into 10 different Ages. So in my case each Age would be approximately 2 years each. There will be questions, charade- and drawing-challenges and explanation-tasks about Me at Age 0-2, 2-4 4-6 etc. For someone older these Ages will be different of course. 

 After each challenge it is placed on the board and marked by the one who got it. If it was a success it is placed on a positive side up, otherwise on a negative side. You score points by managing to get the longest chain of positive cards on the board. But the board will also be a fun portrayal of My future, scoring aside.. If the players succeed a lot it will look bright, but if they fail a lot it will look bad. 

 The idea is that the questions (and future life portrayal on the board) will have different themes. So you may get extra point if you have chains in your perk theme. The themes are (as of now) 

  • Friends 
  • Family 
  • Career 
  • Love 
  • Children
  • Wealth 
  • Travel 
  • Education 
  • Retirement 
  • Pleasures
  • Hobbies 

You play 10 turns (one for each Age of My life). After that the one with the longest chain in general plus the longest chain of their perk wins. 

 So, the journey ahead: 

  • Make the first SIMPLE playable prototype and start playtesting it
  • Make a first version of the rules in English 
  • Test the different actions in the game 
  • Let others test the game when I don't explain the rules 
  • Make a first more real prototype. (alpha?) 
  • Add more content, (questions, themes and such) 
  • Play test with several more groups Make the graphics templates 
  • Make a first good looking prototype (beta?) 
  • Test more Create the editable templates that will be part of the game 

I will probably change this roadmap many times, but it is good to have a map anyway :) :)

SOME CLARIFICATIONS

Yes this is a real project. There is a mention of Jon Manker on the profile page. He is a relative of mine and an experienced boardgame designer that will help me on the way when needed. Both when it comes to design and to KS handling (this is my very first KS project so bare with me ;) If it comes to that he will also help me in the manufacturing and distribution aspects. There is of course a layer of irony to the game, as you may have guessed by now, but it is meant to be a fun experience and a real good playable game. And I also think it can become something more. I want to include templates and instructions on how to make a version of Jag for any other person. So that you can make a Jag version about yourself, or even better about a friend. A great gift! Especially to someone that "has everything" or to any boardgamer really :) :)


So I will, with a little help from Jon ensure that Jag becomes a playable and excellent game. And I, Saga, will be the visionary that creates the game experience in my great creative mind!

The game will be in print and play but if we reach certain stretch goals it will even be a real manufactured version you get. 

STRETCH GOALS

Greatness to be announced...

THE JOURNEY

The basic features and ideas for the game is already in my head. Prototyping in the summer will result in a print and play version come autumn. If the game reaches manufacturing stretch goals it will then be produced and shipped so these copies will arrive a bit later.

Don't miss out on this. Come along on the ride and the road towards Jag - The Ultimate Boardgame About Me!

Risks and challenges

When you pledge on Kickstarter you put your trust in a project long before it is completed and you contribute, with this trust, to making Jag a reality. I value that kind of trust and I will prove my trustworthiness in delivering Jag. But I guess you don't doubt that :) :)
