About

Crypto: The Cryptocurrency Board Game is a challenging, strategic board game inspired by cryptocurrencies, centered around selling cryptocurrencies and requires you to know absolutely nothing about cryptocurrencies.

Whether you are a board game junkie, a blockchain fanatic or just someone who wants to sound smarter when people start talking about internet money, Crypto is the strategy board game for everyone. Incorporating 8 different real-life cryptocurrencies, Crypto is a 3-6 player auction-based board game that is played over four rounds. The rules are deceptively simple: whoever has the most money by the end of the fourth round wins.

Don't be fooled by the simplicity of such a task because there are 8 different cryptocurrencies to play and 4 auction types for each cryptocurrency. At the start of Crypto, each player is dealt a set amount of cards depending on the number of players in the game. Each card represents a certain cryptocurrency and its individual auction type. For example, the first player may play a Bitcoin Vickrey Auction where every player secretly selects the amount they are willing to pay and reveals it at once. Whoever reveals the highest price pays an amount equal to the second highest bidder. 

The three other auction types are:

The English Auction: The price starts at $0 and rises until someone accepts a price first.

The Dutch Auction: The price starts at an above average price set by the auctioneer and decreases until someone accepts a price first.

The Fixed Price Auction: The auctioneer sets a fixed price on the cryptocurrency and then it is auctioned in clockwise order.

Beware though, because every coin must be bought when it is auctioned. If you set a fixed price auction too high, you'll be the one paying for it.

A round ends when the fifth card of a certain cryptocurrency is played. The most played cryptocurrency gets an added valuation of $30 million, the second most played gets an added valuation of $20 million, the third most played gets an added valuation of $10 million, and the rest get no added valuation. You can then choose to sell your own bought cryptocurrency to cash out now or hold on to them in hopes of greater future valuation.

Watch out, because as the game goes on, event cards become crucial. The four event card are Rumors, Hacks, Sell-offs, and Hard Forks, each with a unique effect on overall gameplay.

Risks and challenges

The purpose of the Kickstarter campaign for Crypto is to fund manufacturing and inventory costs to mass-produce a board game for our backers. We want our backers to experience a modern, strategic, family game that we created out of our collective passion for board games and cryptocurrency.

The design, functionality, and dimensions of the board and cards have already been established. Multiple prototypes have already been created so the design is completely done. The biggest challenge will come with finalizing a manufacturer to produce the game and the diverse array of cards needed. Luckily, our team is already in high-level talks with multiple manufacturers, and this problem will surely be alleviated through extended sampling.
