Behind the scenes of the licensed board game creation process

Dive into the fascinating world of licensed board games to understand the mechanisms that make them so captivating. At TOPI GAMES, our Licenses department enables us to create unique gaming experiences by collaborating with famous brands such as Harry Potter, Naruto, One Piece, The Lord of the Rings, and many others.

Research and collaboration:
It all starts with thorough research and a deep understanding of the licensed franchise. Dedicated teams work closely with rights holders, analyzing key elements, features, and themes that define the universe. This phase is crucial to ensure total fidelity to the brand.

Creative design:
Once the research phase is complete, creative design comes into play. Game designers explore innovative mechanics and unique approaches that will capture the spirit of the license. Intensive brainstorming sessions help create initial prototypes, highlighting key elements that will make the game both entertaining and authentic.

Approval and validation:
Prototypes are then submitted to rights holders for approval. This stage involves ongoing dialogue to ensure that every detail maintains the integrity of the license. Adjustments may be made to ensure the game meets quality standards both in terms of gameplay and faithful representation of the franchise.

Development and production:
Once approval is obtained, the development process begins. Development teams focus on creating the complete gaming experience, working on technical aspects such as game rules, components, and packaging. The production phase closely follows, ensuring impeccable quality in every box.

Launch and monitoring:
Game launch is an exciting step, but it doesn’t end there. Careful monitoring of player feedback, reviews, and market trends allows for adjustments to the strategy and constant improvement of future iterations. The feedback loop helps refine the process for future licensed games.
