“Game On” is a series in which we examine the companies, creators, and games in crowdfunding. We look at the journey, ideas, and concepts the creators wanted to bring to market with their product.”

Maple Games is a Canadian game company co-founded by Daryl Andrews & Peter Wocken.  That is focused on absolutely stunning art and smart gameplay. They create games that they would want to play with friends and family. Maple Games focuses a lot on creating games from authors and artists that they really admire and love to work with. As a child founder Daryl Andrews favorite games were Hotels, Rook, Risk, and Scotland Yard. Imagineers is the second game that they released on Kickstarter, their first being Dragon Boats of the Four Seas.

Maple Games released Imagineers on Kickstarter on November 13, 2018. On the first day they reached 60% of their funding goal. Within five days the campaign for Imagineers was completely funded and they started reaching for their stretch goals. They hosted a facebook live of the game and within a few days they had hit the 15k stretch foal and unlocked the solo version of the game. By the end of their campaign they had successfully raise over $30,000 for the printing of their game.

Imagineers is a euro game in which you create a theme park. In the game you can build roller coasters, place different attractions and move customers around the board to match them with their favorite attractions. With each turn players can choose between building an attraction, upgrading your own roller coaster or performing a staff action. The game is easy to learn but has challenging and fun decisions that make the experience great.

In Imagineers you collect money, inspire happiness, and earn the most fame to become the greatest Imagineer.
