Prime Time - The Broadcasting Tycoons

$29,424

As a big shot executive you need to keep your network stacked with the best shows in Prime Time. A basic goal for any TV show is to "win" its time slot for the network by having the highest ratings, and thus the highest ad revenue. As you add talented actors, producers and writers to the show, you’ll have to decide how to arrange your TV Guide to win over the most viewers. Will you be putting your best shows early in the week? What will you leave for the Friday night death slot? Make your choices wisely so you can become the #1 network.

Global Game - English/German First Edition

The first edition of Prime Time will be published in English and German. 

Prime Time is not a language-dependent game, i.e., it can be easily localize the game to other languages.

How to Play Prime Time

Prime Time is played over six rounds, divided into two seasons of three rounds each. During each round, players will bid for and take their actions - buy shows, hire and fire talent, or play golf, among other things. 

Each round follows 4 phases:

  • Development phase – Players take 3 actions each. 
  • Broadcasting phase – Players set up their TV schedule and try to attract demographics. 
  • Award show phase (only in rounds 3 and 6) – Players score points. 
  • Income phase – Get paid, clear the board and set up for the new round.

At the end of the 6th round, each player counts their remaining cash and gains 1 VP for each full $3. The player with the most VP wins the game!

Prime Time is schedule to have a pre-release at the upcoming Spiel `15 in Essen, Germany. We will demo the game and we will have limited copies that will be sent directly from our manufacturer to the convention.

You are all invited to visit us on our booth: Hall 1 D-146.

          
  

 Coming soon... via Pledge Manager..

Our company has developed the game to a point where we are ready to produce it. As this is our 8th published game board, most of our capital was invested in our previous games and we need your help to get a better production value for Prime Time.   

Each backer can literally make the game better by allowing us to invest in better components than our very limited budget can support. 

A successful campaign will also allow our designing team to push forward additional game designs towards publication. Please visit our website to find out more.

Thank you! :)

                                          

Risks and challenges

"Prime Time" is our 8th KS project and we have a lot of experience with the risks and challenges that we might face while fulfilling this project.

Delays in production:
We might still face some unexpected delays during the 3 steps of production: graphic design (corrections), printing and quality checks.
Delays in logistics:
We might face some delays in shipping the games, with ocean freight, importing and customs process and with final distribution.

To sustain and fulfill rewards, we have signed a top quality printer who specializes in complex board game production (e.g., Agricola).

Game production has already started, so no delays in production are expected and first copies should be available during the upcoming Spiel (October 2015) in Essen, Germany.

The main uncertainty factor will be how many stretch goals we can reach. As we reach more stretch goals, there may be a delay in reward shipment (could even be after the retail version is out in the market) as specialized copies might take a bit more time to be ready for shipment.
We might split fulfillment into two stages: base game and stretch goals so you can enjoy your copy of Prime Time as soon as possible.

Shipping the rewards to your personal address is a great feat to any publisher and we might need 2-3 shipments to get all of the components to your doorstep. Please be patient and acknowledge the time and effort we are investing in order to get ALL of your rewards.

Money Back Guarantee Policy
As this is our 8th KS project, we have already invested a significant budget to produce the game and bring it to a point where it is ready for printing. We have already signed our manufacturer and have a very tight production schedule. Thus, we have decided to go ahead with the following 100% money back guarantee policy:
If you do not receive your rewards by the end of July 2016, a refund will be issued through your Amazon Payments account*.

We took into account all delays we encountered in our previous projects and we can assure that 100% of your pledge will go directly to our manufacturer.

*Disclaimer:
It is the backer's responsibility to provide his (correct) address within a reasonable time frame. Any delays on the part of the backer will not be covered by our 100% money back policy.
If a package is not delivered due to a backer fault (giving a wrong address, not claiming the delivered package from the post office, etc.), the backer may be requested to pay additional shipping fees for the item to be sent out again.
Any delays caused by customs inspections or by the backer's country's postal services will not be covered in the 100% money back policy.
We cannot provide tracking numbers to some international locations.
