About

In 2014, I personally printed, cut and assembled a few hundreds copies of CliniC, in my living room. They were sold out within 2 hours at Spiel, in what was a magical Thursday morning. I've never experienced that before, and in 2015 I released 3 expansions, which were also sold out. The time has come to finally bring that design into the future, and create a beautiful and modern production that does justice to the game.

  • CliniC Deluxe, the definitive edition of the popular board game inspired by Theme Hospital.
  • Completely re-envisioned and re-created art and graphic design by Ian O'Toole - including the box, the player boards, the main board, all tiles, and the overall visual identity.
  • Rewritten and edited game rules, revised for 1-4 players.
  • An expansion box that contains all previously released expansions (Medical Dossier #1, #2 and #3). 
  • 340+ custom components & many more deluxe features!

We will have very exciting Stretch Goals during this campaign, all developed since 2014 thanks to players' ideas, a big thanks to the geek community that helped me to improve and develop the game during these last 5 years !

Among other healthcare visionaries, you seek to build the ideal clinic and serve the needs of the population.You quickly get a pre-admissions facility, and patients are already lining up!

Can you build the clinic of your dreams? Hire doctors, nurses, and maintenance staff! Build new modules, offer specialized treatment, and even build a parking lot or two!

This is your CliniC ! Build it however you see fit and give patients the care they need, and succeed!

CliniC presents a set of unique concepts, many of which have not been seen in board games before:

  • Build the most effective clinic - in 3D! Avoid inefficiency for your doctors and cut time spent moving patients between rooms.
  • Hire the best doctors and nurses and treat the most patients as possible over the course of the game.
  • Succeed and make sure you can cover upkeep and salary costs, hopefully even making a profit and driving popularity in the community!
  • Make enough money to pay the upkeep and salaries and convert the remaining $ into Popularity, the final goal of the game.

Spieleschmiede has opened a brand new: Giant Roc Games will start a Spieleschmiede campaign and will produce a full German Edition with rules, box & board translated, if we can reach enough German backers together. If you want a german version, back the project here or directly on the german web site.  All game content from both campaigns will be identical. Spieleschmiede and Giant Roc will take care of the translation and production of a full localized German version, including Rules, Boards & Boxes in German language, if their funding goal is met. At Spieleschmiede, there will be no shipping costs charged beyond the pledge levels."

Depending on the success of the campaign, we may produce a localized edition of each board, the only component of the game which is language dependent. More updates during the campaign!

Alban Viard is a mathematics teacher. He lives in Beaune, a small city in Burgundy, France. He has designed and developed several boardgames during the last 8 years such as Tramways, Small City, CliniC, Card City XL, Town Center and many expansions for these games. He loves stacking everything and is always impressed by the 3rd dimension.

Ian O’Toole is an Irish illustrator, graphic designer and gamer working out of Perth in Western Australia. He has over fifteen years’ experience working in many creative fields,  producing illustration, design and 3D animation for a broad selection of industries. Ian has created the artwork for such notable boardgames as Lisboa,The Gallerist, Vinhos Deluxe, Escape Plan and more recently Age of Steam and on Mars in April 2019.  Ian works in a wide variety of styles and particularly enjoys drawing from design trends throughout history. Ian works from his home in Perth, where he lives with his wife, two children and dog.

Nathan Morse has edited, translated, and/or written the rules for more than 300 published games, including The Gallerist, Troyes, Lisboa, Vinhos, Kanban, King of Tokyo, Bruxelles 1893, Madeira, Deus, Ginkgopolis, Magic Maze, The Big Book of Madness, Black Angel, Tramways, and Small City. He has a particular hunger for games with emergent complexity, and lots of player agency. Nathan is also obsessed with creating what he calls “holistic summaries” of games and their expansions, which integrate all the rules into a single stream of color-coded instructions; simply skip those you’re not using. He has played and taught more than two thousand different games, and is thrilled to share the joy of a good game with you!

Todd Sanders lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where he works as a graphic designer, publisher and furniture maker. He has great renown as a solo board game designer. Many of his games have already been published and in the past three years Ludicreations funded KS campaigns for his card games IUNU, They Who Were 8, and Mr. Cabbagehead's Garden. Other games should come later this year... I have heard good things about Pulp Invasion, a second stand-alone game in the Pulp Universe with a sci-fi theme...

Many people have worked during the last 5 years on this project. Todd has made a great map to sum up and to locate people around the world.

 A big thanks to Kickstarter that helps us to allow this crazy project!

 All pledges can be refunded in full up to 14 days after the end of the Kickstarter campaign. 

If you apply for a refund more than 14 days after the end of the Kickstarter, we will only be able to refund 80% of your pledge. The difference is the amount of the unrecoverable fees paid to process your order through both Kickstarter and our partners.

Once we have started to process and pack your order, refunds may no longer be available.

FAQ: Will the game be available after the campaign?

Alban: Perhaps. The first print run was sold out very quickly. We do not have traditional distribution, but we do not promise you will not find it in shops later. We will set the MSRP of the base game at 69 USD.

Risks and challenges

AVStudioGames has already put a substantial amount of money into the initial illustration and graphic design. CliniC has been play tested since 2011, first released in 2014 during SPIEL in Essen. The game is ready.
We now need your help to traverse the final route: Producing the game. We have established many contacts in the game manufacturing industry since 2012, which ensures good quality for all the components.
The final files are not yet ready, but all we need is your support to finalize the project.
