I found this oddly hypnotic and entertaining (for all the wrong reasons, of course), so I might as well share:

From the video:

"This thing is a breakthrough in board game technology"

Saying this while surrounded by Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit, and Pictionary boards...

Thanks for sharing this. I found it incredibly entertaining!

So this Kickstarter is just for his patent costs? But not to produce anything?

Only 5 grand to be listed as a Game Designer! Sign me up!!

One of the risks he lists is that patents can take up to 5 years to become registered. Might qualify as one of the longest Kickstarter deliveries.

Seems like the goal is only backing for his patent expenses. Oh the clueless people never stop falling off the cliff.

I can't help but wonder what the "breakthrough" is. Perhaps he has invented DeltaV, or Stone Age, or -gasp- Dominion...

Edit - Given the "Planet Alignment" talk, chances are that he has independently rediscovered Katalyka.

When you're comparing your "breakthrough" to roll-and-move games, I think Stone Age is so comparatively advanced, it qualifies as science fiction. whistle

He stresses the 3D aspect quite a bit. Bets are on Loopin' Louie or Mouse Trap.

I think he doesn't have a fully developed idea yet. He wants the money so he can try to develop a patentable idea.

Clearly you weren't listening.

He has MORE than an idea. He has a BREAKTHROUGH!

I thought he said his idea was the 3d-board technology - the one where you have multiple gameboards you stick together or some such. You know.

It sounds like the game board is sentient, and can reconfigure itself into something different to match the "fun" of the player.

The final stage of the game involves navigating a Godzilla-style monster through the ravaged city, for an exciting match against an evil 80 ft. mecha made of Game Quest boards which have spiralled out of control.

I wonder if he thought having all those game boards behind him gives him street cred as a board game inventor....

Protip: it's in his Youtube channel, so it's pretty straightforward to preserve for posterity.

You will learn and follow the patent process, receive singed copy of the U.S. patent when achieved, and participate in game design meetings.


Not a signed copy, mind you, but a copy that has been put too close to the fire. Have to wonder what this guy's been smoking.

I guess that having everybody wailing is cool for the designer, but probably not so much for the actual wailers.

I'm betting it's a Risk Legacy kind of mechanic.

Just for fun, I'd wager GG on it. hmmm...is wagering GG even allowed?
