About

To educate the world about blockchain and crypto, CryotoChicks have spent last six months and hundreds of hours developing an educational and fun game to be played and enjoyed by young and old. Blockchain community shaped game design and fun facts and all ages were involved in testing the fun and engagement of this game.

We have created several prototypes of a new and exciting board game that educates all ages on blockchain and cryptocurrency! Our final prototype called the Founders Edition, was created after several prototype iterations and rounds of user-testing with ages 5+  incorporating feedback on gameplay, time, and overall fun and education!

Our goal is $145,000 to deliver 1,000 units  to backers and continue to develop the foundation for future games and editions. This  amount will produce the second edition of the game based on the existing prototype and reach fulfillment with shipping. Once we fulfill this goal, we can provide our backers with 1,000 copies of the second edition of the board game and be ready to distribute future versions of the game including a planned mobile app version. IP and trademark protection and strategy is being developed with our legal team. The board game is the first step in this gamification of CryptoChicks blockchain initiative, with the next evolution being digital version.

 This goal was determined to ensure that the cost and quantity are at the best volume based value. Thanks for all your support! In terms of our stretch goals, we will be adding these soon to help with translation of the game into multiple languages, infrastructure to more widely distribute future versions of the game, and a mobile app!    

CryptoWhales is a board game that aims to teach blockchain in a fun and interactive way for all ages. Everything you can think of is here- dApps, crypto, law firms, and lending platforms!

CryptoWhales aims to unite everyone through education on cryptocurrency and blockchain, the technology that has the potential to disrupt and innovate. The game is designed to promote collaboration and make sure all players feel welcome and are learning about blockchain as they play in a fun and engaging way! 

This game is fun for both children and adults!

Instead of competing with each other for the top place in the board game, CryptoWhales encourages teamwork and collaboration. The board game reflects what it is like to interact in the real crypto-world!  You interact with the miners, community, and last but not least, the developers! 

 CryptoChicks is a not-for-profit organization that delivers blockchain education to women and youth all around the world. We deliver hackathons, conferences, and fun educational workshops in order to empower people to stand on their own two feet in the crypto world. 

We are a not-for-profit organization dedicated to fulfill the commitments to our backers and deliver the board game to backers and ready for the broader community.

FIND OUT ALL ABOUT CRYPTOCHICKS AT 

 The reason we at CryptoChicks designed this board game was to deliver on our mission of education in blockchain and AI. CryptoWhales is just the first phase of education through game-design, we have plans to launch additional variations of the game, new games, and mobile app based games for education. 

We at CryptoChicks take our promises and pledges very seriously. We have successfully delivered conferences, hack-a-thons, and have invested significantly in this game-design, building prototypes, and user-testing. Below are a few commitments we are making on what we will deliver with the Kickstarter funds.  

The Kickstarter funds will go to: 

  1. Funding a second edition of the board game based on the existing prototype
  2. Funding production and shipments of the game
  3. Funding additional infrastructure needed to expand selling games (online store)
  4. Building the foundation for future variations of the game and a mobile app version of the game

 We invite you to take a look at the tutorial video that we have created. 

Everything about Blockchain and Cryptocurrency is here:

 Game Rules paper inside the box:

The goal of CryptoWhales is to educate about blockchain and real-world crypto events and ecosystem. 

CryptoCoins: This is cryptocurrency- of course! We have bitcoin, dogecoin, ether, and even p-coin! The main purpose this holds in game play is to buy, sell, and trade value like money. As you earn more cryptocurrency, you can upgrade, develop, and build on your projects.  

Layers: As you go through the game, you will learn more about Layers. In these layers, you will build on your projects, which represent dApps. 

You will build a business centred around blockchain technologies. Use your crypto to interact with various lending platforms, as well as trade crypto with each other through exchanges, and build projects! There's so much to do in this game, you, your kids, friends, and colleagues will have a blast! While playing this game, you will be fully immersed in the exciting ecosystem of the blockchain-community.

Meet Christine O'Dell, the designer of CryptoWhales

Fun little add-on; Insight into design

Our team is the heart behind the CryptoChicks game. In our words:“Blockchain is such a cool technology with extraordinary potential, but much like the early days of the world wide web, it currently feels complicated and intimidating. This game was designed to teach the masses, people of all ages, that blockchain is not scary, it is actually fun!”

Risks and challenges

We at CryptoChicks put in our 100% effort to deliver on our commitments and to our backers.

We have already developed and produced real prototypes as seen in the videos on this page and completed hours of user testing from ages 5 and up, however, there is a chance there will be modifications required or shipping delays on tier awards due to production coordination and production vendor contracting as well as potential price fluctuations. Shipping costs can also vary, especially for international shipping rates. Tier awards will arrive within a reasonable period of time for production after the end date of the Kickstarter.
