About

Wizard's Keep is a fantasy based board game that uses simple math skills to help players move around the track of the board. Each Player picks one of six wizards who are making their way around the town they live in trying to make it home.

  • The game is aimed at ages 5 to 8 and will help build on early math skills using cards the players draw from a stack and must add together or subtract the numbers to figure out how many spaces they will be able to move.
  • The rules and testing of the game are still under development but we are making great strides in finishing and improving the game play and design.
  • We look forward to seeing everyone that can make it to our booth and thank you to everyone that wants to help us.
  • In addition to the main game of Wizard’s Keep we will be publishing two books alongside it with the same title the first will be an early development book for children with pictures and working on early math skills, then a second book for young adults that will be called Wizard’s Keep: The Star Light Room. Each Book and board game is aimed to be launched in August at GenCon in Indianapolis IN our home state of operation.

Risks and challenges

“Wizard’s Keep” Is about 40% finished as we push forward to finish the art and board design we are hoping to get the kickstarter funding to help improve the design of the game, as well as using the funding to finish production of the game. We have been working on Wizard’s Keep for a few years and are nearing the end of the design and ready to move to production. We realize the goals are deep and very ambitious but we believe we have a wonderful team in place to help get to these goals with a little help from all of you. The game will be finished and launched no matter what the results of this campaign is, and we aim to provide you with the best game and books we can.
