BC Games, was assembled by two gentlemen with an eye for game manufacturing, and one old guy who knows “a thing or two” about business (from Microsoft). Together, we are bringing the world a way to play fun games about The Bible and learn to be disciples.
Our first offering, “Speaking of… The Bible”, takes major events in The Bible together with their Biblical Event Time and Book/Chapter/Verse location and requires players to assemble them correctly in the order in which they happened. A Biblical Order of Events (also called the “River” of biblical time) is created in the center of the playing area. Players must then, on their turn, determine where their Event occurs within the existing cards in the River.
This style of play allows players to become well acquainted to when events occurred while participating in a fun game activity with others. We have included three different styles of play to challenge the newest, or younger, Christian to the masterful theologian. We anticipate this game will be a primary tool for Sunday Schools and Youth Groups due to its subtle memorization, enjoyable play, small size, and portability. It will also be a hit with families and multiple generations given the information is well known to all ages.
Three playing modes are available in the General Rules: Easy, Advanced, and Expert in order to promote achievement in memorization of the events and their references. Expansion Packs and Booster Packs are also being prepared to be made available by the time the Kickstarter campaign is done. This will help maintain the challenging nature of the game, while expanding the knowledge of those who play it by adding more general and specific events.
Other Versions of the game are in development and scheduled to debut after the Kickstarter campaign finishes for the premier product. “Speaking of… Jesus” will be our second version, and will delve more deeply into the life and words of our Lord Jesus Christ. Following that, “Speaking of… Discipling” will provide specific verses, and when to use them, for those learning to disciple others in the Christian faith. Other versions are in development at this time as well.
We are asking for your funding for this venture, but we would first like you to spread the knowledge of our game to your association groups and church leaders across the globe.We will be launching our campaign for 30 days. Please support us by looking for our Kickstarter campaign as well as our Facebook page. (https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Speaking-Of-Game) There will be special cards, special deals, and other incentives to pre-order through our campaign instead of retail. You can help us best by looking at, hopefully participating in, and spreading the word about our Kickstarter campaign.
Risks and challenges
Kickstarter will assist with providing artwork designed specifically for the versions mentioned. The artwork could take longer, but as a precaution we will be looking at multiple sources for production of the artwork.
Our chosen vendor for manufacturing the cards has priced them within a range to which we can agree. We may have to use a secondary vendor, depending on the success and/or popularity of this funding program to fulfill the cards in a reasonable time. Slight changes to our processes will be necessary to handle that additional manufacturer.
