About

Hello fellow passionate board gamers, 

White Sea Games is excited to announce its first product, the Legacy Board Game Journal. This journal is the only journal of its kind that you'll be eager to use and proud to own next to your personal board game collection! 

As many of you have already figured out, the true essence of board gaming is about building connections and strengthening relationships with your friends and family. These moments and experiences are finite and may be shorter than we would like them to be. By writing down your game plays and keeping records of the great moments, you can remember them longer and hold them closer to your heart. 

The path to the the design and ultimate production of this journal started with my desire to memorialize my personal board game experiences with the people I truly care about by capturing real moments that go beyond meaningless tallies and cold stats. 

I'm glad you're here!  This journal is nearly done and I'm excited to share it with you! 

See Inside!!

Sample draft content of the inside design can be found in the link below.  We'd love to hear your feedback to improve on the journal.

The inside features an innovative way to record your unique games by creating a table of contents as you use the journal. On each entry page, you'll find a space for the following:

  • Game title
  • Date
  • Location
  • Game duration
  • Player names
  • Mid-game forecast of anticipated winner
  • Final scores
  • Cooperative game scale
  • Legacy game tracker
  • Personal Notes
  • Inspirational board game quote or question
  • Space to capture quote of the game 

Physical features:

  • Hard cover with glossy finish
  • Lay flat binding (Smyth-sewn binding)
  • Royal blue and black bookmarks
  • 100 GSM acid-free paper 
  • Measures 21.5 cm x 13.7cm (8.5in x 5.4in)

After you play 50 games, you'll have the option to reflect on the prior 50 games to take stock of your journey! This is a time to reflect on the good moments and jot down what made it exciting and memorable.

Pen Details:

The below picture captures some of the older versions of the Legacy Board Game Journal. As you can see, we went through several versions before settling on a beautiful printed cover! We are really happy of how it turned out and we think you'll love the final product! 

It started with linen clothe covers, then we tried a cotton cover, then landed on an awesome final glossy printed cover.  

Risks and challenges

This is our first Kickstarter project. We have worked hard to learn from others who have launched successful Kickstarter campaigns and deliver beautiful finished products. We are partnering with good companies and have tested the options to optimize the quality of the finished product.

There are many other challenges to making sure this project is successful. Because of occasional unforeseen events, it is common for production to be delayed. I've done all I can to ensure that this journal will be delivered on time if funded. Of course, delays can happen, but we built in lead time to ensure the delivery date promised is met.

With your help, we can have the funds to print the journal, overcome the various obstacles that are in the way, and make sure you are delivered a quality product.

As with every Kickstarter project, there may be unforeseen issues we could not plan for in advance. We'll keep you informed on all situations that may arise.

PRODUCTION RISKS — Even though we do our best to ensure a quality product and a timely production, there is always the risk of delays. Supplier shortage, holiday traffic and weather conditions are just a few of the reasons a production could be delayed.

MISSING/DAMAGED ITEMS — When dealing with a large number of orders, there is always a chance that errors will occur. If after you receive your order, you find that items are missing, please contact us at denis [at] whiteseagames.com and we will send you the missing items as soon as possible. We'll do our best to keep additional stock at each distribution center to handle this.

If your package arrives damaged, please take a few photos of all damaged items and email them to us at denis [at] whiteseagames.com. We will send you replacements for the damaged items as soon as possible.

DELIVERY DATE — Our current estimation for delivery is December 2019. If any delays occur then we'll be using email as the primary means to communicate these delays with you.

DELIVERY ADDRESS — We will send out a notice before we ship to pick up any backer address changes. Backers changing shipping locations may incur additional shipping fees.

UNDELIVERED SHIPMENTS — Undelivered shipments and/or missing or damaged parts have to be reported in 90 days after we send you a shipping notice through email. After that date, we may treat unreported shipments as successfully finished and any potential resends and/or replacements may be at our discretion only.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT — By supporting this project, you acknowledge that the product presented is at a development stage and that the final production shape of the journal may still change. Not much though, as we worked hard to get this as final as possible.

Thank you very much,
White Sea Games
