Cleverhouse Games and Toys, Inc. is a Milwaukee, WI based game and toy company. We are seeking your support to reach our funding goal to secure manufacturing for our Chess King board game.  Our company prides itself on creating games and toys that are fun, engaging and have an educational focus or benefit as well. The Chess King board game is currently being used in local elementary, middle and high schools as well as, Boys and Girls Club locations.

Chess King is a fun and challenging pastime! Each time a player completes a puzzle, they get a new puzzle, which depends on choices made in solving the previous one. Chess King is a perpetual puzzle game of speed and ingenuity. The various puzzles will inspire creative thinking and innovative decision making, as well as enhance the player’s cognitive thinking skills in every puzzle. The player must think ahead, or they may encounter a Chess-King Lock. The player must accomplish the Chess King challenge before his/her opponent and without encountering a Chess-King Lock.The King is not allowed to move backwards and no one piece can be moved consecutively and if you touch a piece you must move it if there is a legal move to be made. Chess King is unlike any puzzle or board game you ever encountered!  It combines the skill-set of strategy and tactics from chess, along with the creativity and mind memory from puzzles.

Teachers have incorporated Chess King in their curriculum. Teachers have found that teaching students how to play Chess King during class time or as an after school activity can help teach life skills, such as problem solving, thinking ahead, exploring different opportunities, and understanding that different decisions lead to different probabilities of success. Studies have shown that playing puzzle or strategy games help students academically. The beauty of Chess King is that it combines both strategic play and puzzles so the player is receiving the best of both worlds!

Chess King has been featured at the Gen Con convention held in Madison, WI. The 2012 Chicago Game and Toy Fair in Chicago, IL. As well as the Glenn Con events within the Board Game Barrister toy store in Glendale, WI. 

Why should you fund this project?-Besides the curricular benefits of Chess King, participation in this Kickstarter event will give the player a great academic outlet for healthy competition and is loads of fun! With new manufacturing secured, Chess King can reach a wider audience who will have the ability to enjoy and benefit from playing Chess King. We can then bring this extraordinary game to gamers who will benefit from the cognitive thinking skills enhanced in this game. The contributions made to the Chess King project will impact you tremendously.

We Aspire To Inspire Creative Thinking!

Risks and challenges

We have worked extensively in preparing for this Kickstarter project to reduce the amount of risks and or challenges that may occur with our project. As with all things unexpected challenges may arise. Producing the board game in the quantities we are anticipating may cause production delays and alter the projected delivery dates. We are committed to do everything in our power to streamline production costs and processes to keep the targeted deadlines.
Our biggest challenge would be if our project is not fully funded, securing the monies necessary to produce this extraordinary game and distribute to the widest audience possible. So that they are able to benefit from the positive attributes of the game. We as a company are dedicated to having Chess King as a premier product in the casual games market and have confidence that we will reach our funding goal to assist us in reaching this milestone.
