Gogogic Builds a Board Game


kreppu_logoGogogic is launching a board game in December (Iceland only). In Icelandic, the game is called “Kreppuspilið” – or “Recession” “The Crisis Game*”, in English. We see the game as ideal for parties and family gatherings over the holidays. It’s topical, humorous, ironic and – last but not least – fun fun fun.

Usually, Gogogic would not be involved in board game production, but these are unusual circumstances. The concept was brought to us by Valur Þór Gunnarsson, a business contact that lost his job in October through mass layoffs that were in direct connection to Iceland’s declining economy.

Valur instantly became committed to doing something new, fun and creative – never allowing the situation to drag him down. After a couple of weeks of idea work “Kreppuspilið” was born and he decided to talk to us about producing it. Since it is an absolutely crazy idea –  to design, produce, market and sell a board game in just over a month – we decided to commit to the project, mainly because we love crazy ideas. When something seems impossible it becomes more exciting and challenging to pursue.

So, here we are. The game is designed, it is fun and it is ready for production! Who knows – if this goes well, we might produce more board games – or re-design this one for the US market. You might even see an on-line version of it, some day 😉

*NOTE: Financial Times and Iceland Review posted articles that translated Kreppuspilið as The Crisis Game.

    Nothing seems to be easier than seeing someone whom you can help but not helping.
    I suggest we start giving it a try. Give love to the ones that need it.
    God will appreciate it.

    Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content seem to be running off the screen in
    Internet explorer. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.

    The design look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon.
