About this project
With the Greatest Hits Set you will get the The Bead Game Box along the most well known and popular games loved by players all around the world.
Games from the Mind Games Set will challenge your brain with strategy and tactics, you will have to plan out how to win. Competition will be challenging.
This is the way to go if you want to get the complete experience. You will get extra boards, allowing you to make them up to 19x19 in size. It's also great for creating your own Original games.
The Base Set is a great starting point, you will be able to play all games that require plain boards and of course, you'll also be able to think of your own games. The Print&Play option is going to allow to play even games that require specific boards.
Variations are a great for games, because the player can express himself and tailor the game to be more challenging, more competitive or just more fun. Many popular board games we know today evolved from variations of a different game.
Adding your own games and variations is now very simple thanks to our specially designed Game Canvas. No matter if you are using a phone or your computer, it will take just a few minutes to add your game. Adding variations is even more simple, you just have to describe what makes it special, that's it. The Game Canvas is a powerful tool that anyone can take advantage of.
Each game board is made out of High Quality plastic and consists of a 6x6 Grid. This size also allows to use the grid as a coordinate plane, because each die consists of six sides. You can combine the boards together and make the coordinate plane even larger thus providing unique gameplay possibilites.
The game boards are highly modular allowing you to use many different kinds of layouts. With the XL SET you can make board layouts that are up to 19x19 in size allowing you to play a huge number of different games.
With the Expansion packs you'll get High Quality pre-made game boards that can be used with and combined with the plain 6x6 grid boards. Even if you choose only the base set, you'll still have the ability to get game boards using our Print&Play option in our Web App.
The Bead Game Box is inspired by The Glass Bead Game, a book by German born Swiss writer Hermann Hesse who received the Nobel Prize in literature in 1946. However, with all we know, the game remains a subject of fascinating interest and mythical curiosity. With the power of the unified creativity of players we can Discover the Legend Together.

Risks and challenges
THE BEAD GAME BOX is ready & can already be manufactured in small runs. It can be shipped to players worldwide. With the support of crowdfunding we plan to achieve a level of industrial production. Our Web App up is constantly updated with new content & features. User generated content is an important aspect. Traditional game compilations inspire and act as an "ice breaker" for individual creativity.
