From cooperative and party games, to competitive and multi-player games, 12 SEASONS provides days, months, and even years of entertainment for every age!

We have also included 12 new and unique 2-Player strategy games.   

Token dimensions reduce the risk of choking hazard while maximizing grip for adult dexterity.  Designed with you in mind, 12 SEASONS plays on a genuine wood board, with laser engraved wooden pieces and a large metal coin.

WOODEN BOARD AND TOKENS (PROTOTYPE: Coin will be real metal, not painted as seen.  Wood may be glossier than actual board)

We have spent TWO YEARS perfecting 12 SEASONS! The only System with a unique new game for each month of the year. We need your help to raise at least $15,000 for mass production.

ARTWORK FINALIZED FOR INSTRUCTIONS
ARTWORK FINALIZED FOR INSTRUCTIONS

Risks and challenges

Instructions have been play tested hundreds if not thousands of times. People enjoy the diversity of our games. Our sourcing company has worked hard to find high-quality suppliers.

As a recent Engineering graduate, I finally have time to launch! Networking with Jarom Johnson and other business students has been insightful.

My wife Charity soon graduates as a Recreational Therapist. We have been attending our church's '12 week program' on Starting and Growing a Business, and applying what we learn about Self-Reliance to this project.

This project is giving me the experience I need to find success with my next endeavor involving a much more complex board game system: CROWNED!
