About

Welcome To the Official “Key to the Kingdom: Legacy” Kickstarter campaign! Thanks for joining us!    

“Key to the Kingdom” was a board game invented by Paul Bennett and produced in 1990 and 1992 by Waddingtons Games. It was released internationally (including the UK & US). Since then the game has gone unpublished, but has a cult following, still buying the game to this day on sites like Amazon & Ebay.

The goal of the game is to go around the game board until you've found the "Key to the Kingdom" Treasure card and then escape the kingdom. Treasures are hidden in 1 of 7 dungeons, where you must fight monsters to proceed. You may also steal treasures from the other players. 

From the beginning you have 8 different equipment cards, which you need to use to pass hazards or defeat monsters. Sometimes you might lose 1 or more of your pieces of equipment, but there's a possibility to get them back at a couple of places on the board. Also be wary of the Demon King, if he lands on you or the space next to you he will send you to the Dungeon. 

The board is in 6 parts, connected with roads in many combinations, and the only way of reaching two of the parts is by jumping into one of the whirlpools in the middle of the board, this causes the board to fold in or out, expanding the kingdom you can explore. 

Having been part of the generation of young Table-Top gamers who were lucky enough to have been exposed to this game, I went on my own quest to find a copy of it, years later. Unhappy with the results, I found that any complete set could only be found on auction sites for ~$80+. 

However, a ray of hope emerged. Upon my search, I was able to connect with Paul Bennett himself and ask about any future intentions for the game. Through this, Paul, my partner Brandon, and myself devised a plan. With Paul’s game, Brandon’s experience producing a Mobile App, and my passion for Table-Top games and experience as a marketer, we would revive the love of “Key to the Kingdom” and produce a FULLY PLAYABLE mobile app version of “Key to the Kingdom”, titled “Key to the Kingdom: Legacy” (“K2TKL” for short). 

While our first goal will be to recreate the original game in its entirety, our stretch goals and perks will revolve around adding even more content and alternate play styles to the game! 

Key to the Kingdom: Legacy will be initially available for Android and iOS Tablets and is a game for players who enjoyed the original game, or are looking for a simple and fun Fantasy/Adventure board game to play with friends. This includes players ages: 8 and up, and up to 6 players per game.

Think of Key to the Kingdom:Legacy like a simplified Dungeons & Dragons adventure, in a board game setting similar to LIFE (the board game).

We hope that you help support “Key to the Kingdom: Legacy”. That doesn't even have to be with a financial contribution. If you share our page to friends and family, and let people know about this exciting revival of a classic game you will be helping us get one step closer to our goal! We are also extremely excited for the awesome perks we've preparing for those are able to pledge to our campaign!

We are coordinating with a team of developers who have provided a reasonable price and assurance of quality. We are confident in this team and are very excited to begin working with them. On top of their fees to complete the game, we are accounting for the cost to produce/deliver all perks, as well as site fees and production cost to run the campaign.

  • Cost for Development - $15,000
  • Site Fees** - $1,800
  • Backer Rewards - $3,500
  • Administrative Campaign Costs - $1,700
TOTAL GOAL = $22,000

** Please note that Kickstarter deducts a 7-10% fee for successful campaigns (including Amazon’s Payment Processing) 

Holy CRAP that would be awesome!! In the case that we exceed our goal, there are some stretch goals we have in mind that we just couldn't include in our original projection. The good news, is that because the main programming and coding will be done at our goal amount, we will be able to accomplish a lot if we exceed our goal!

  • $23,000 - pass-and-play (single-tablet multi-player) (+$1,000)  
  • $24,000 - Brand New board (+$1,000)  
  • $26,500 - 5 new monsters (+$2,500)  
  • $29,000 - 3D hazards and monsters (+$2,500)  
  • $30,000 - Rule Customization (+$1,000) 
  • $31,000+ - More boards, monsters and content, also additional platform availability
I am taking on the responsibility to manage and promote the Kickstarter page and doing my best to ensure this project comes to life. I’ll also be working with you awesome people and hearing all your feedback and thoughts on the game!

Brandon has worked diligently on his spare time preparing a Design Document, structuring the flow of the game, and outlining all the rules and functions that will need to be included in the game. He has also collected all available artwork from the game for the development team. 

That leaves our development team, who are on stand-by pending the completion of this campaign! They are prepared to get started on Back-end coding and building of the rules and functionality of the game as soon as we hit out goal. Then, they plan on taking available artwork from the original game and recreating that into a mobile app experience and building the UI.

Risks and challenges

Our main concern now is getting the word out and letting the right people know what we are trying to do!

In regards to risks & challenges, we will be unable to begin full production of the game until we meet our goal, however based on the previous games that Les has worked on we are 100% confident in the quality of the end product within our goal amount. We have broken the project into milestones, setting a specific itemized cost for EACH milestone. This allows us to ensure that all essential game items will be accomplished within out $15,000 dedicated amount for the game. All and any amount over that will only go towards furthering the quality of the game!

Games Les has worked on includes Starcraft Brood Wars, Tiger Woods Golf, Guitar Hero Mobile, Super Star Wars, NCAA Basketball, Rainbow Six, Top Gear Rally II, Abe's Oddworld Adventures, Dance Sensation, Family Village and many many more!
