About

A DIFFERENT KIND OF BOARDGAME//ROUGH UPS

Def:_Moneytary comes out of monetary, which basically means the control of the supply of money in a defined system – a policy which can be both expansionary or contractionary.

Moneytary combines BOARD - playing CARDS – and lots of COINS! It’s easy going and dynamic. Players individually play each other to raise and collect as many coins as possible,  and the player with the largest stacking of coins in the end, is the ultimate winner of the game.

It is a fun and nervebreaking boardgame for family and friends!
You will quickly learn the routines of the game design, get hooked and carried away by its speed – and by the coins and pride at stake! It is also a game that invites your inner softgambler to play your family for doing the dishes after dinner, or your friends for a nice lunch. Or just for some quality time together.

HOW TO PLAY? 

Moneytary can be played by 4-6 players, doing rounds – which singlely is build in 3 routines. And be aware that this game holds equal parts of pure luck and hardcore tactics. Even if you get a good start at first- or second routine you cannot predict the outcome of the round - nor the winner – untill the last coins has been laid down at the end of the game. It ain’t over ’till its over.

1st routine we named Trump: To get the game started you must buy your way in by depositing in all of the game’s 9 pools. This also builts up some sweet tension in between players. The outcome can be determined by the cards being dealt to you!

2nd routine we named ID (identical): Strategic betting based on the signs of your cards. The signs being ancient danish Runes I, II, III, IV. In this routine you must beat your competitors by playing the upper hand. You must collect the highest feature in cards in order to win.

3rd and last routine we named First Out: Obviously you must get rid of ALL your cards as fast as possible, depending on the dealer’s first row. Finish first, and you own it.

For everyone of these specific routines you must buy your way in or fold. Also, extra cards have been issued to rumble up the game even more, so that playing the routines and cards by hand isn’t the only thing you must plan for. You also have to consider the MoneyMaster!

ADDING THE JOKER//GAMBLER EDITION

In the run up we decided to make Moneytary even more fund and nervebreaking by doing a by-choice gambler version – adding the MoneyMaster! To be of great use or of NO use… depending on if you play tacticly or just being in luck!

ARE YOU THE MONEYMASTER? The MoneyMaster is a gambler card that can determin if you win or lose. During the Trumf this card can substitute for any given card refering to any of the board’s 9 pools – leading you towards the money represented in each.

During the ID the MoneyMaster works in addition to your dealt cards – helping you playing the highest feature. But having the MoneyMaster on hand in the end of the First Out, you can easily go from earning to yearning coins. As explained above, Moneytary is a game which works both expansionary and contractionary.

IDEA & BACKGROUND//THE MONEYTARY BROTHERS

The ideas and explorings for a new kind of (board)game started way back in ’05. We both enjoy to play games, compeed and do a little softgambling – and one play led to another, which led to something new and something different – which suddenly led to an idea of implementing the monetary system onto a boardgame platform, mixing cards and chips.

The idea was to implement a system simple and yet complex enough to make it a fun and surprising game for its players.
Since our final decition to make our own boardgame, we have had days where we felt like running our heads against a wall, crying like little girls, ready to give up on our idea(!) but luckily we didn’t and at this point we can tell you, that every hour – minut - and second has been well spend! And today because of that, we are absolutely sure that with The Moneytary Boardgame, the World has been given a new level of FUNNY MONEY times.

WE NEED YOU!//WHY BACK US

We have come to believe that our game is finally mature enough, and at a professional standard, suitable for a much larger crowd of gamers. Therefore we proudly introduce to you Kickstarters The Moneytary Boardgame. Getting ready both a family edition and a gambler edition. And by chance - and thanks to you Kickstarters and Backers – we will sooner rather than later be able to produce and introduce Moneytary to the world outside of Kickstarter’s as well.

Any kind of financial support on our Moneytary project – little as well as loads – is warmly and thankfully welcomed. We need you more than never!
Right now we are at final design and product details, but please feel free to follow us on Facebook as we get the last things done and testing going. Or e-mail us any questions or feedback you might have concerning our new boardgame at: binnovativa@yahoo.com. Thank you!

QUALITY//WHAT TO EXPECT

Discussions on the Moneytary’s final quality in board, 2 stacks of cards and coins has been on-going. But there really isn’t that much to discuss… We, The Moneytary Brothers, want a high quality output on all elements, against the common market’s developement and producing of boardgames - where cheap materials of poor quality are of higher priority at the major producers!

We want to make sure that the in-game feeling of Moneytary will get you EXCITED due to both the game, the design and the quality! Let us give you a few examples:

BOARDGAME: Regarding this very important element, we have absolutely NO hesitations. We are chosing WOOD as an expression of our quality politics. It is important to US that YOU see, feel and understand the quality and the work we put into the finish, in whatever Moneytary element you get your hands on! 

COINS: Something as simple as a Moneytary Coin in your hand has its own important aesthetics. A coin is a coin! So it has to look and feel money-like. Instead of making the coins out of plastic or other cheap materials, we prefer the game coins to be made out of metal.

CARDS: The design and paper quality of playing cards in general works just fine - BUT we will like to make our own type of cards. New cards that favors an ancient Nordic design (Runes) printed onto a 300 milligram per centimeter coated paper. We believe this will create a alternative, ethnical and unique look for our Moneytary Card.

And we can go for an even lower paper weight - and still keep somehow a standard - but we simply don’t want to compromise the quality!

A HISTORICAL DESIGN//NORDIC RUNE RENAISSANCE

Runes are ancient Nordic signs, which can be translated, or interpretated, into both language, song, scripts and the arts. The Runes can be dated back 200 years AD.

Runes are a gathering of 24 individual scripts or signs, used by the Vikings to communicate - and out of those 24 signs we find it very compelling to use these 4 Runes:

Thor (D), Earth (Ø), Odin (F) and Necessity (X).

SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY//BEING STAND UP GUYS

We trust Moneytary to be rich on great and nervebreaking fun for family and friends! Aware that we have made a game about ”money” – we must state that we certainly do NOT wish to encourage any kind of hazzard! It is a VERY important cause of ours, that Moneytary is not misunderstood to be anything else than a entertaining boardgame. Therefor, we wish to take a stand by donating $1 for every 10 boardgame we sell - to the official association against Ludomania in Denmark.

Regarding our choice of supplier - the Moneytary Boardgame will also be made out of FTS-Certified RUBBER WOOD (which is Plantage Wood) made by suppliers with a "Take 1, plant 2” policy. Despite our first thoughts we must admit, that it is actually pretty easy to be caring for the world AND being Social Responsible in the making of a quality product. An easy made decision!

Our special thanks!

On this journey we had to bring in some extra help communication-wise. We have had the great pleasure of working with newly degreed Simone Valentin. Simone has a professional bachelor degree in Communication Designs, and has been a great editorial help in producing video and text materials, as well as in guiding us in choices of medias and content - and action planning.

Also… OUR THANKS TO all of our friends and family, who we have been (sometimes) torturing with our testings throughout many nights, while the game’s system and routines was still in progress.

YOU have all been very helpful and patient with us, and we "The Moneytary Brothers" are indeed very grateful.

Risks and challenges

We have invested an awful lot of time and money already in pursuing our game to be outlived. So far we have been spending years on developing and wondering if this idea of a new boardgame were save to ship - or if it was never ment to leave the dock of our thoughts...
Money has been spend on prototyping, gathering research material and seeking the ideal supplier, etc.

Our biggest challenges and risks have been these 4 topics:

1) Will this idea and concept be of any good and how will it differs from any other boardgame?
2) Exactly how much money will it take to start a production, and when (or just how) will it be possibly for us to finance?
3) Where shall we go and who must we see to guide us past developing and budgeting?
4) Is it even safe to ship or is it going to be a disaster showing it to the public, andonly our friends will get exited about this boardgame?

Well, after spending years on developing and testing we felt confident about our work, and had an independent party taking a looking into the fields of boardgames. The analytic results were incredible - to our advantage. Combining boardgaming, playing cards and the simple idea of coins travelling in a system - making a new and acceptable way to have table-top fun with money - we were actually kind of ordered to take action!

So passing the theoretical issue of timeliness we felt confident taking our idea to the next level. This level being to force ourselves to dig down into that heartbreaking financial questioning...
After difficulties seeking investors locally - we most excitedly stumbled upon Kickstarter.com, which was just launched here in Scandinavia. An answer to our prayers! Amazing projects has been shipped and supported via this online crowd-funding media - making it possible for investors and entrepreneurs reaching a much larger network. We have our savings, but we still need a little help - so this question being our greatest challenge, we will leave up to You to answer.

Arguing our final fourth question of disaster: using Kickstarter.com also helps us answering if this boardgame will be acknowledged in a much more wider scale than before (nor ever) ringing doorbells and calling in friends for testing.
We still have a long way to go and a hole lot of work to do before our first production - but by the help of Kickstarter.com we finally have been able to do some sort of a real next step deadline. We look forward to - and scared at the same time - to see how our Moneytary Boardgame Project will run as we hope to present to you our boardgame as a new competitive brand within the next year.
