About

Introduction

A unique, 2 to 4 player game that attempts to step away from the conventional playing card or board game formula. Fish Chips is a quick, social game that lives by the phrase “simple to learn, hard to master”. Fish Chips aims to be a fun for both gaming new comers and veterans alike.

Admittedly, as far as the materials go, the current version of Fish Chips is only a test version. Graphics and game-play are mostly complete but with funding, I plan to buy the final materials including high quality chips, chip trays, high-quality paper products and boxes to hold each game. All manufacturing details are lined up but the financial support is needed to see this game completed. The entire project is being done solo as a potential first in multiple games.

The Game

Fish Chips is a chip manipulation game set in the frigid landscape of penguins and subzero temperatures. In Fish Chips, players use their colony of hungry penguins to compete for fish in the sea (commonly referred to the Sea Stack).

Game play is simple; with a combination of jumping into the sea, hopping out and performing special moves, place your penguins in the best position to outwit both fish and penguin kind.

 The game consists of five unique penguins, each with their own special moves and personalities. Along with the unique penguins, colonies consist of common penguins (which avoid eating fish). At the start of the game, players choose penguins for their colonies and arrange the order in which the penguins will take their polar plunge. Once all players agree to start, players take turns performing actions in order to get fish. Simple enough, but there are not enough fish in the sea in this game. Players must position their penguins best in the Sea Stack while avoiding colony over-population, sea overflows and spoiled fish.

Once all the common penguins have been joined to the sea or a colony and one player has empty colonies, the game ends and all players may count their fish. The player that fills the bellies of his penguins with the most fish is declared the winner.

Fish Chips has been a joy to design and develop. If I am able to accomplish anything through this game, I hope to spread the joy of tabletop/board games and penguins with others. I am confident that others will enjoy my game as it is easy learn and play but complex enough to allow for many levels of mastering. Along with that, the theme is fun-loving and relatable to all age groups.

Risks and challenges

Fish Chips is an independently created game with a simple design and non-complicated game pieces. But with that said, the biggest challenges I might run into are the manufacturing timetable and pricing.

Assuming I generate enough interest and supporters, pricing will be a non-issue as the more products I buy, the cheaper rate I will be charged. But the timetable to get all the materials organized and approved will be the biggest issue. Because of the material sourcing, the timetable might fluctuate. The good thing is that there are many options for gaming materials and the simple nature of the components of this game should allow for quick assembly.

Beyond those two concerns, the art work is mostly complete which will allow me to focus on getting the materials and less worrying about creative direction.
