Playtesting an Unreleased Game

The process of developing a board game from scratch can be a very tedious procedure, but it’s studded with many exciting and rewarding phases. Perhaps the peak of the rewarding phase has to be the moment we invite board gamers to test out the unreleased game!

It started back in 2021, when we developed our highest-selling game to date, Innocent Until Proven Guilty. Back then, we had handpicked dedicated customers whom we invited to test the game, to give their valuable feedback on how to make it better. The experience from the first playtest is what drove us to do it more often. The feedback, the amazing time board gamers had while testing the game, and above all- seeing a board game that was under development for a year being tried out for the very first time evokes emotions in our Research and Development team that words cannot comprehend.

Is 'Make Me Tea' for me?

“Kraftz, can you please make a game for 2 players? It’s impossible to play group-based games now!”

In March 2021, amid a lockdown, this message popped into our inbox. Back then, we had only developed 4 board games, and all of those were based on a group of 5 to 6 people. With the pandemic making it impossible for groups to come together for game nights, our team was riddled with questions- can we make a game for two players? What will be the game based upon?

Be it with or without lockdowns, it’s not every day that we get to have a group to play board games, let alone assemble 5 to 6 like-minded people who want to spend a Thursday night rolling the dices. So our Research and Development team embarked upon the mission of crafting a 2-player game, and to make it more alluring, they added a bit of caffeine to it. Well, a lot of caffeine!

What is Gulmondi?

3rd of March, 2024

Say hello to Gulmondi- all our board games are based on this island that we built for you!

Be it the name of the island, or its map, it is literally made from the fusion of Gulshan and Dhanmondi. The island is created by Tasliman Azam, the Founder of Kraftz and the Co-founder of Kraos Bangladesh. The island may be small, but it’s never short of dramatic events and happenings.

Ten Months to Ten Years

25th of February, 2024

The Journey of Kraftz started back in December of 2014, with the simple idea of crafting things that would be creative, and not locally available in the market. The concept evolved over the years to the creation of passion-centric products, that are interactive and experiential in nature. The journey of almost a decade has countless nights of brainstorming, surviving the phase of a pandemic, and the omnipresence of the urge to create something new for everyone. From a one-person stall business to a team sharing the same passion, the journey has been nothing short of magnificent to me.

With so many dreams our team has weaved together to fulfill in the upcoming days, we firmly believe that it's time to grow exponentially. Our team has envisioned 2024 to be the year where Kraftz truly accelerates and gets to serve unique experiences to more people than ever. With 10 months to go to a decade of Kraftz, I am going to write blogs every two months about what we are up to in our current phase of acceleration. So, what have we done in January and February of 2024?

The perfect game for large gatherings!

28th of January, 2024

After covering numerous game sessions on private & corporate events through the board games that we have commercially developed over the past six years, we embarked upon a new mission- to empower the participants with a feeling that they had only observed but never went through themselves; the art of bidding!

Participating in an auction has always been a thrilling and captivating activity, and we wanted everyone to get a taste of it with our highly entertaining game BID IT. Like every board game that we have created so far, the game is also based on our very happening island named Gulmondi. The auction is based on the bidding for the precious treasures found on the island, and the team with the most valuable treasures at the end of the auction wins.

The story behind Magnetic bookmarks and the evolution of Kraftz

15th of December, 2023

From Bookmarks to Board Games and Coloring plates.

Are we sensing a shift in Kraftz? If so, where is the seven-year-old brand heading?

For a start, let's go back in time.

In the year 2019, three years after we started creating Hardpaper bookmarks, we decided to develop something new for our Krafters. Something they love, locally crafted in Bangladesh. We started researching Magnetic bookmarks.

The ones that showed up the most in our research were metallic magnetic bookmarks, and the ones made of stainless steel. But we wanted to get that Hardpaper feel on the Magnetic bookmarks, which we feel is not present in the metal ones.

Lights out!

4th of February, 2023

A big blast, and suddenly everything is black.

What on Earth is going on?

Oh, of course. It is yet another blackout.

Been a millennial, blackout is not something new to me, but its recent emergence has been quite a problem; especially when EVERYTHING we do nowadays is connected to the internet. And to the utter disappointment of my two younger siblings who are mostly glued to their phones and tabs, our generator is not connected to the plug points, so the router is shut down. It wouldn’t have mattered if it was connected anyway; for this time, credit to a mysterious reason, the caretaker of our building informed us that he cannot start the generator. Due to some ‘technical reason’.

Right. Another way to say he’s too lazy to do that after dinner time.

Now then, what do we do?

The journey to a new Board Game with BRAC

13th of October, 2022

As we sat on our absolutely stunning booth of the Board Game "মাটি থেকে মুঠোফোন" on the second day of Frugal Innovation Forum 2022, we've had a flash back of the past seven months; of amazing moments that Team Kraftz will cherish forever! Having the honor to craft a Board Game with BRAC   Social Innovation Lab, having weekly meetings and testing out the game at BRAC Center with the team, multiple visits all over Bangladesh and seeing how much the students have learned and enjoyed the games, it all felt like a dream, that certainly came true.

Let’s go back in time!

On a busy afternoon of 7th of April 2022, we have received an email that got the entire team of Kraftz on their feet- an email from BRAC, from the department of Social Innovation Lab.

“Collaboration Opportunity to Design a Game”

What is Kraftz up to?

24th of October 2022

"Kraftz, what are you up to?”

We got bombarded by this question many a times by many of you, so we thought of creating a blog and tell you what our team is up to lately!

With the end of October, one of the largest project we’ve ever worked on is also coming to its end. That is, the creation of a Board Game with BRAC for the Mobile Money Project, funded by the Gates foundation. We have successfully launched the game at the Frugal Innovative Forum, and we’ve gotten an amazing response from everyone. 

Now, let’s talk about the projects that we are set to launch very soon! We are super excited for the upcoming months, for we have many things in the offering, for you.

Project দেশ

Patriotism comes to all of us on 21st February, 26th March and 16th December. We get goosebumps listening to the national anthem when our cricket team is playing on a big stage. But should patriotism
only be confined for specific days or events? 

A nation must be celebrated in every possible way, and in order to love it, one must get to know about the nation first. And for that, the best learning method must be implemented- that is, Experiential learning. With our experience from Kraftz, a brand that has been creating experiential and interactive products since 2014, we have decided to land a project- a movement that will make everyone get to know our motherland more.
