About

Ever dreamed of creating your own board game? I did.

So, one day, I decided to create one!

Bagan, the board game is the result of years of hard work, playing it, finetuning ... and playing again! A friend of mine, who writes his own comic books in his spare time, took care of the drawings. It was tested and approved by a lot of friends, family and even board game geeks!

This game was not designed to make money. It was all about making an excellent game that is not too complex nor too easy, but is fun to play (and win of course :-) ).

Bagan...

is a mystic place, in the heart of Myanmar. It is a place filled with thousands of towers and temples, as far as the eye can reach. I have travelled a lot, so I can honestly say, it is one of the most intriguing places on earth! 

This year, Bagan was added to UNESCO's World Heritage List!

But in this area you can expect some devastating earthquakes...


Unexpected earthquakes...

are the main theme in the game. Therefore, try to protect your temples with the help of buddha.


Another part of the game play is based on that other famous tower, the Hanoi tower. This means you can not build or move a large boulder on top of a smaller one.

The game is a mixture of strategy, luck and tactics. 

A lot of choices have to be made: Choose whether to train your workers, or let them build temples. Choose whether to build higher temples or more. Decide whether moving a boulder is a better choice than building one...   

What is in the box?

Bagan, the board game 

contains:

  • 113 cards
  • 4 customized engraved dice
  • 1 board
  • 5 cardboard buddha circles
  • 16 wooden pawns
  • 120 wooden discs of several sizes 
  • Guidelines in Dutch and English

NOT INCLUDED: the world map in the background :-).


The special edition 

contains all of the above and these items:

  • 5 3D buddhas (to protect your temples)
  • 16 meeples (to replace the pawns)
  • 8 temple peaks (to top your temples with a nice dome)

It is time to play!

Bagan can be played with 2, 3 or 4 players, from the age of 8. It takes 60 to 90 minutes to play. The game is family-fun proof!

So, do you want to play a 'different' board game and support a beginning board game designer?

Then you need to order Bagan now!

Risks and challenges

The game is well-engineered, balanced in gameplay, thoroughly tested, and I received a sample which you can see in the pictures. Ready for the real thing...
The game will be delivered around the Christmas holidays, at least if production and shipping goes smoothly...
