About the project


What's the story behind King's Kin?

In the mystic wilderness of the Andaman Islands there is a tiny Koko Island ruled by Koko Maharaj. In order to protect his kin from power hungry enemies, Koko Maharaj had long sent his 25 kins to different parts of India under disguise. On his deathbed, Koko Maharaj shares the super-secret “The Koko Order” with you! It holds clues of how the kin are related to each other. Now, using these clues, you need to build the Koko family tree and find the rightful successor to the throne of Koko island. Welcome to the world of King's Kin!


What motivated you to do this project?

As a part of Khel Planet, we conduct game based workshops "Khelshaala" for children from marginalized communities in Chennai. Our workshops were going great, but we were hitting a roadblock in terms of content. We wanted children to have fun and learn skills that were not academic alone – like team work, creativity or problem solving. However, games that teach such skills and that too in local context and language were quite limited and often expensive. For instance, terms like Halloween, Thanksgiving Day were unheard of to those kids. So a few months later, we decided to design our own games that would be fun and also inculcate life skills. King's Kin is our first step in that direction.


What makes King's Kin different from all the other board games in the market?

King’s kin is the first board game designed with Indian royalty as background. Moreover, it helps children break out of normal thinking processes at an early stage. The concept is so unexplored and exciting, it's a treat for the whole family!


What is the biggest benefit of a game like King's Kin?

This game will help kids to think differently and get them thinking about disability inclusion and gender equality. This game is super fun, challenging and for kids of all ages. More importantly, it will help our children pick careers that they want pursue, as opposed to those forced by adults and help us see differently-abled people as one of us, rather than pitying them.

Why crowdfunding?

Khel Planet Foundation is an education non-profit organization that nurtures life skills in children through play (games and activities) so that these children are prepared to succeed in the 21st century. Our team comprises of game designers, educators as well as development sector specialists. Our inspiration for this game from the lack of relevant games in the market that are contextualized in Indian context as well as promote lateral thinking along with gender sensitivity and inclusivity. The game is based on our learning and experience of conducting life-skills workshops with children across the country.

How will the money be used?

Rs. 20000 in Design

Rs. 120000 in Print & Manufacture

Rs. 20000 in Distribution To Schools

Rs. 30000 in Distribution To Stores

Rs. 10000 in Translation


What are the risks and challenges associated with your project?

The biggest risk is that we won't reach our target. Since there's an All or Nothing model, if we don't make our crowdfunding target, we'll have to refund all our contributions.

What happens when I don't raise enough money?

It'll take a little while longer, but this game will come to life anyway. We'll just have to find other ways to make the mission of life skills development for children come true.

How am I going to prove that I won't just take all the money and run away?

This project is too close to our hearts. We are already an established and registered non-profit organization. We have come such a long way in turning it into a reality, there's no way we can run away from it now.

Why is it so important now for children?

The 21st century is going to be the conceptual age of creators and collaborators. Given the rapid pace at which technology and globalization are growing, and the excruciating demand on natural resources, we do not know what kind of challenges lie ahead for the future generation to succeed in the 21st century. The question that then arises is how do we prepare this generation to face unknown challenges?

What we do know is that in the 21st century, individuals will have to locate and assess new information quickly, communicate and be effective in collaborative & multi-cultural work environments, be adaptable, creative, problem solve innovatively and be able to view systems holistically. And such skills will enable the future generation to deal with demands and challenges of everyday life. Hence King's Kin provides life skills education to meet the needs for 21st century.

Are the rewards shipped outside India?

Thank you for your interest! But No. At present, We will not be able to ship outside India. If contributors can pay for the additional shipping cost, we can consider on a special case basis.
