About

Meet players, discover places and play your favorite board games over the board! 

World Quest Map is a mobile application that enables you to discover places related to your favorite board games, meet players of your game community and schedule games over the board.

You have a break at lunch time? Open World Quest Map app and find a player around you to play a game of Go, Backgammon or Chess! 

You have an hour to kill on a sunny Sunday afternoon ? Create a game of your favorite board game in your neigborhood and meet new players! 

Chess Map

I already developed this application for the chess community, it is called Chess Map. It took me a year to conceive, develop and design it. Try it and imagine it is for your favorite board games. You see that Chess Map completely fulfills the project of World Quest Map for the game of chess.

Why do I need your help?

I need your help to generalize Chess Map for all board games, and to improve the application conception

For this project to be viable I need a team: 

  • Another Developer
  • A UI/UX Designer and Illustrator

We need 4 months to adapt Chess Map to all board games.

World Quest Map features

  • Find places

World Quest Map lists bars, clubs, historical places, shops and many other places associated with your favorites board games.

  • Contribute

Participate and share with the community the places you discovered.

  • Organize games

Find opponents, create public or private challenges in the places you like and enjoy a great moment over the board!

  • Follow in real time new public games created around you

Add a place to your favorites and be notified when a player wants to play there.

  • Meet players

Reveal your personality and your game preferences, create a unique profile : level, favorite pieces, favorite type of game etc. Discover lots of different profiles and choose your opponents. Share World Quest Map and add your friends to the community!

All those previous features are already developed in Chess Map. You can check Chess Map twitter  account to get more information about GDPR compliance, security and privacy of your data and the whole spirit of my project. 

New features 

  • Multiplayers games

State of the art: In Chess Map only one versus one challenges can be created. World Quest Map enables you to scheduled games with unlimited participants. 

  • Ephemeral places

Sometimes an event is organized in your city and this event is limited in time. World Quest Map allows the community to add ephemeral places to gather and enjoy games the time of the event.

  • Profile edition and customization

For each of your favorite board games your profile needs to be editable with your games preferences, what board games you have at disposal etc.

  • Board games selection

World Quest Map is compartmentalized. Select a board game and the application switch to this specific board game. You have access to places and games for this specific board game. You have access to all players that have this board game in their preferences. 

Budget

3 persons * 4 months * 3000 Euros = 36000 Euros

Planning

  • September 2019 - October 2019: Kickstarter magic is operating.
  • November 2019 - December 2019: I choose my team and brief them about the project.
  • January 2020 - Avril 2020: Implementation of World Quest Map with my team.
  • May 2020: World Quest Map is on the Apple Store.

Security

Chess Map is available on the Apple Store. Consequently Chess Map already fulfills all Apple requirements about application that allow users contributions / interactions. Consequently this will be the case for World Quest Map

When you meet a player thanks to World Quest Map, you write a positive/negative game report. It make it easier for the users to find players that share the same spirit of gaming.

Places contributions are validated manually to avoid places that would not be relevant for World Quest Map. Exemple: Schools, user's home, and other kind of private places.

World Quest Map is GDPR compliant. World Quest Map does not record your age, your gender, nor any other private information that are not required for World Quest Map to work.  

World Quest Map does not record your geolocation. World Quest Map records the city you are if you specifically informed it in the application.

World Quest Map requires that you are major in your country.

Conclusion

I focus on features, because I am an engineer. But the other talented persons who will join my project (designer, developer, business partner) thanks to Kickstarter will have their own ideas and creativity to make this project a real success. Thank you for your attention.

Regards,

Pierre Simon, President of Creative Citizen S.A.S and creator of Chess Map.

Risks and challenges

1) The main risk is in the team management. Although it is always easier to manage a team that joins a beautiful, human, useful project and are well payed.

My philosophy: At the moment other talented persons join my project, I am not the only person to have a point of view, ideas, creativity and an understanding of the project. Every talent in my team will work for a project s(he) believes in. However I am intransigent about users' data privacy and security, about the human spirit of my project and its purposes: Use technology to connect people through a shared hobby in nice and real places dedicated to this hobby.

I do believe games connect people and have a positive social impact. That is the main line of my project.

2) Apple has the right to postpone / cancel / forbid the deployment of an application. Some features within an application may have to be changed, deleted, discussed and it may took few more weeks to submit an optimized version of an application on the store.
