How It Works
Knuptial Knowledge is a customised board game designed for couples.
You start with the board below. As an example, this one has been designed for the lovely couple, Laura and Jack.
See the player markers? Green for the woman, and blue for the man.
The aim is to meet each other in the middle of the board.
The couple decides who goes first. The man can be a gentleman, or they can decide rock-paper-scissors, or a fight to the death.
Whatever you like.
Let's say the woman goes first ... let's face it, that's how it'll always be, eh? She moves her piece into the nearest square.
Then, Laura picks up a card from the deck with her initial on it, and turns it over.
If she answers correctly, she leaves her piece on the square. But if she gets it wrong, she has to move back and drop a relationship hiccup token on that square. She can't move back onto that square now!
Then Jack has his turn, moves his piece, and picks up his card. He answers a question about Laura.
The game repeats until they both reach the centre.
Then the couple draws a card from the Winning Deck.
They answer the question together and ... that's the end of the game!
Have a happy life together!
So ... how do we make this?
You have to come up with the questions!
On your own, think of fun stories about yourself that your partner may (or may not) know about. They can be nice stories about your past, your interests, or your hopes for the future. Then you uses these stories to craft at least thirty questions about yourself for your partner to answer.
The Winning Cards are the good ones, because they're meant to spark ideas and excitement about the you and your partner's future together. Questions like ... how many kids will you have? Or maybe ... who said "I love you" first? Our server will pick those automatically from a wide list.
Once you have decided on these questions, you follow these steps:
- Create an account on this website
- Start a new game
- Provide your names in the web form
- Fill out all your questions ... make sure your partner doesn't see the questions.
- OPTIONALLY: Pick the colour schemes and patterns of the board game artwork
- Submit the form!
This will generate all the board game artwork according to your questions and colour picks, and upload it to The Game Crafter server. The webpage will let you know when it's done.
- When the generation is done, place an order for the game! Provide your shipping address and payment details.
- Then all go out and celebrate the awesome personalised relationship game that is on its way to you!
What if I want to make this for my newly-wed friends?
That's great! Here's what you do.
First, get introduced to your friend's fiancée. Check!
Now, get introduced to the fiancée's friends and family. Check!
Now, team up with the friends and family, and show them this website. Check!
Now, you're ready to get started.
The friends and family of the newly-weds gather together, and come up with fun stories about the happy couple. They can be nice stories about the past, their interests, and their hopes for the future. Then they use these stories to craft the questions of the game. Stories about the bride become questions for the groom to answer, and stories about the groom become questions for the bride to answer.
Once you've decided on these questions, follow the steps above, and you've got a wonderful wedding present for the happy couple.
