Have you ever thought about creating your own board game? Got an idea for a great title that will conquer the world? Do you have ideas in your drawer or on your computer that are waiting for better times? Yes ... we perfectly understand the situation. Ever since we began having fun, and later working with board games, we’ve been devoting every moment to this great hobby. We test, change, cut and modify. As a publisher (Games Factory) we also get a lot of prototypes. Some of them are readable and carefully crafted, but the vast majority are made in a hurry or without a thought. Young authors often disassemble games from their collection in order to create their prototype. They re-use cards, destroy boards, cut and glue markers. They will often go to DIY stores in search of components that could be used as coins, discs, cubes, and will even go as far as dismantling their mum’s necklaces to get the perfect bits for their prototypes...

Wouldn’t it be nice to have all the necessary components at hand to create a board game? Not to ponder on which game to destroy or which piece of jewellery in mum’s drawer is least valuable, yet will make for the best crystals in your game? We proudly present the Board Game Creative Kit – a tool that will vastly improve prototype creation!!!

When designing the Board Game Creative Kit we thought of what you might find useful when creating your own game. We can’t provide you with custom carved figurines or fancy metal coins, but we do provide bases for figurines, custom figure shapes and dozens of patterns (which you can cut out and apply to the supplied stock of counters).

Do you need card stock to create a card game? Here you go! We’ve prepared 220 cards for you! Wooden elements? Sure. More than 200 wooden components of various shapes. Six-sided dice? You can even create your own. Board? Choose between a big and a small one. Even the box in which the components are delivered has been left blank for you to customize and use for your game.

Here's what you get in the Core Box:

  • 1 x white box
  • 6 x different punchboards including 260 tokens in various shapes 
  • 1 x white big board 
  • 1 x white medium board 
  • 4 x player boards 
  • 4 x player screens 
  • 24 x D6 dice (4 different colours) 
  • 24 x plastic pawns (4 different colours)
  • 60 x small wooden cubes (4 different colours) 
  • 60 x medium wooden cubes (4 different colours)
  • 40 x medium wooden discs (4 different colours) 
  • 40 x wooden meeples (4 different colours) 
  • 110 x poker size cards 
  • 110 x mini european size cards 
  • 1 x big linen bag 
  • 5 x various wooden components 
  • 12 x plastic bases 
  • 12 x blank dice
  • 1 x sticker sheet for blank dice (204 stickers) 
  • 12 x zip bags
  • 1 x sticker sheet with personal details (4 stickers)
  • 1 x code for digital download (5 various pdf-s)
  • 1 x 24p. booklet containing publishers' details

 

 

 

 

 

 

We don’t know what kind of game you’d like to design ... but we can give you some cool ideas. With every Core Box, we will provide all unlocked PDFs with elements that may be useful to you during creation. Of course, you can also purchase PDFs from us (as an add-on) and try your hand at game design and construction on your own(see our sample PDFs with terrains). The sizes of the prepared templates are adjusted to the size of the tokens and tiles found in the Board Game Creative Kit and add-ons.

 

 

In the box you will also find something special - a booklet with information about publishers from all over the world who are waiting for your prototype and will be happy to look at your work. From Brazil to Russia; from the United States to Australia. We have collected the most important information about what type of game the publisher expects and how to contact them (with at least the e-mail address of the person who is in charge of receiving prototypes).

 

We've prepared quite a few add-ons to help you enrich your prototype. Are you creating an extremely elaborate card game? You will need extra cards. Need different component dimenon of wooden items! Or maybe you need more card stock? We’ve prepared 8 punchboards, packed with various shapes specifically for you. Want to create a game for more players? Think about adding the 5th & 6th player expansion. Additional elements in different colors will allow you to expand your vision.

 

 

 

 

 

Board Game Creative Kit is designed by enthusiasts for enthusiasts, people who want to enjoy the creation process. Help us fulfill the dream of waking up the game designer in each and every one of us! All we need is to raise $10,000 for the basic version to see the light of day. However, if we collect more, we will add a whole lot of new items to the basic box.

We will unveil Stretch Goals with you in mind - the more of you who want to create, the more elements we will add to the box. Stretch Goals are divided into those that will be included in every Board Game Creative Kit purchased, and those which enhance the Add-ons. Check below to see what we can achieve together.

Unlocked Stretch Goals

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can unlock more Stretch Goals: 

 

 

All components are manufactured in Poland, in factories which supply companies such as Board & Dice, Egmont, LudiCreations, Pegasus Spiele, Portal Games, Rebel, and many others. 

The cardboard used for the box and tokens is 1.2mm thick and can be upgraded to 1,5mm (when we achieve that Stretch Goal). We used 130g flat surface paper stock to make the tokens more resistant. Furthermore, you can use most common pens and pencils to draw on this surface. . The wooden components are made of beech wood and have an environmentally friendly coating. The playing cards are made from 250g and can be upgraded to 300g paper (we have a SG for that as well). Their surface is flat (i.e. no canvas finish), which makes it easier to write on them. The two game boards included have a white linen finish on both sides

All the other items you will find in the box are of equally high quality. Our goal is for you to create the best, most beautiful and robust prototype. Even the box itself can be used for the prototype. An easily removable sleeve prevents the box from opening accidentally. 

All components are CE-certified.

 

Games Factory has been running campaigns on Polish crowdfunding portals for over 2 years. We’ve managed to successfully carry out fifteen campaigns, collecting over 1,100,000 PLN (Polish curency). We are the publisher of such games as Roll for the Galaxy, Star Realms, Kingdomino and Dominion, and we have a wide fan base in Poland. It’s time to present our ideas to the World; Board Game Creative Kit is the first of them.

This project is backed by an experienced team led by Marcin Ropka who gained valuable experience in such companies as Trefl Card Factory (Krakow) and Portal Games (Gliwice). For many years Marcin, along with Viola Kijowska, has also led a group of testers called Little Compulsive Game Testers, and frequently gives lectures on how to create board games and prototypes. Marcin, together with Viola, is the author of 3 published games (including Alien Artefacts by Portal Games) and dozens of prototypes.

Piotr Sobieraj, Bartek Samel, Wojtek Radłowski and Kuba Mann have a lot of experience in the industry, who worked for years for Bard publishing house (the Polish publisher of Carcassonne). In addition, this campaign is supported by Karol Górniak and Grzegorz Wacławczyk – kind souls with lots of interesting ideas. Wojtek Filarski inspired us with the idea of a perfect tool for board game designers. His endless inspiration and fresh perspective on certain matters has been invaluable in the creation of this and many other campaigns.

Printing, production, and preparing for shipping will take place in Poland. It is very important to be able to supervise every step of the production and ensure the best possible quality. That's why fulfilment will be done by companies in Poland.

This campaign offers so many add-ons and pledge levels, that we decided to go the extra mile to find the best solution for worldwide shipping. Thus offering shipping for the lowest and most accurate cost possible. Fulfillment will be done in Poland, after which we will send all the packages to our partners. 

We are using the best possible tracking system; you can follow your pledge from the second it leaves our office until the moment you receive it to your door.Based on the information we have now, we can say that the cost of shipping will be determined by the weight of the package and by the area you live in:    

  • USA: starting at 8$
  • Canada: starting at 10$ 
  • Western Europe and most EU countries: starting at 8$ 
  • Eastern Europe: starting at 12$ 
  • Rest of the World: starting at 29$ 
  • Mexico: starting at 12$ 
  • China, Australia, Israel, Japan, Singapore, New Zealand: starting at 20$

IMPORTANT: SHIPPING PAYMENTS WILL BE PROCESSED AFTER THE PLEDGE MANAGER CLOSES

The exact price will be determined and announced within few days. 

We also prepared a useful excel file that will help you customize your pledge level based on the weight of the core box and the selected add-ons. Please verify the total weight of your pledge and calculate the estimated price for shipment.
