About

The fund goal is the price to fabricate 3000 "Seafarer’s company" game sets, which is going to be produced by Juna Pack A/S, a company stationed in Aarhus, Denmark. It takes roughly 3 months for them to make them, if the goal goes through I will make the order in August and have the boardgames done in November. 

 I care because I really like this game idea, which is not too complicated or too easy to play and has been a great way to have fun with friends, in the Monopoly kind of way of course. As this project goes live, I will be out speaking with other companies and boardgame clubs to hear if they as well are interested in this game, and I hope to be able to translate it into other languages and sell it to other countries abroad.   

As it is right here at basic, I can promise a Danish and English version of the game, and if you donate at least 450 Danish crowns/66,86 US dollars, you will get one “Seafarer’s company” board game sent to your address personally, in either Danish or English. I will also set my concept drawings and sketches up for grabs in rewards, drawings used to make the “Seafarer’s company” that is.

Risks and challenges

The risk here is marketing: I may not be successful in getting deals with chain store companies and other boardgame sellers, especially if I want it to go abroad countries. And that will be the A priority when I’m done with visualizing the final boardgame, which is probably going to be done here in May, however that is the biggest risk in this entire project.
