If you want to make your own board game, there are several steps that need to be taken.
The first is the most obvious: You must design it. This starts not with figuring out how the pieces should look or what picture needs to go on the board. Instead, come up with the gameplay aspect first. What will be the victory condition? Do the moves need to be timed? Will motion be straightforward, like most kid’s board games; or will it be more complex, like chess or Risk?
Once you determine these things, you can move on to how the board should be designed, which types of pieces are needed, and what they should look like. By doing it in this order, you can be sure that you’ll end up getting all of the accessories you need and none that you do not.
Finally, it’s time to make your own board game into a professionally-produced version. This is made much easier if you deal with a company like ours – Hero Time in Hong Kong. We can source all of the different parts, so you won’t have to hunt down individual suppliers.
Another option for producing a game is to license the basics from an established company and then have us make a personalized board game version for you. You may have noticed the many, many variants of Monopoly that currently exist. Many of these are examples of licensed, but personalized, styles. As with an original, we can produce these game packs for you without a problem.
