Dear Game Inventor
Board Game Development -
Inspired Games Consultancy Service
You've had a brilliant idea for a game which could provide you with an income for life. Perhaps your game idea is complete but you are uncertain in investing in the design and artwork or what to do after completing the design stage. Or perhaps you may have one or several reservations about certain aspects of the gameplay. Whatever your concerns or requirements, we at Inspired Games can help.
From the time you conceive the idea for your game, you will need to be exceptionally well prepared for a challenging journey if you are to succeed in turning your dream into a reality.
Many games do not make it to production and, of those that do, many fail because of poor product design, flaws in the gameplay, confusing rules, or a combination of all three factors.
At Inspired Games, we are able to provide you with vital help and support at all stages of the Product Development process to help evaluate and unlock the true potential in your game.
We can advise on the gameplay and provide you with an objective opinion and, if appropriate, our recommendations. We can complete, if required, the fundamental design of your game including the completion of all artwork ready for printing; and we can also provide answers to questions on significant related commercial issues, for example:
Working with the Inspired Games Team

Our directors and development team have the skills and experience in business and product development to help you succeed. Our sister business, The Design Company ('TDC') offers over 24 years design and development expertise to complement our team at Inspired Games. As Inspired Games CEO and founder in 2006, I personally manage all Consultancy Projects. I am also the founding Senior partner of TDC, a position I retain, I have worked either directly or on a consultancy basis for major household names such as Clairol, Vodafone, British Telecom and Virgin Entertainment and was formerly a chairman and director of a media entertainment PLC. I devised the STARPLAYER brand in 2005 and led the successful development of The Starplayer Football Board Game and Card game - with numerous other additions to the brand currently in development.
Non Disclosure Agreement & strict confidentiality
In the first instance, to ensure that you have protection for your game concept, for your complete peace of mind, we provide you with a Non Disclosure Agreement (NDA).
Meetings and discussions with us are held in strictest confidence.
So you can rest assured that the concept for your game is completely safe with us, which we know is an essential consideration in today's competitive world.
We can conduct a detailed evaluation of your game concept and provide a written report with forthright analysis and provide preliminary proposals as appropriate.
Our Evaluation Report will provide you with an objective and independent opinion that could save you unnecessary expenditure in the long term and will help you decide on the next crucial step. The line between success and failure is a thin one and we want to ensure that you, and any product we are associated with, is on the right side of that line.
Our fee for this service is £795 plus VAT, based on an initial meeting at our office or we can accept submission of your game concept in writing. Travelling time to meetings, if required, and travel expenses incurred, at cost, would be additional.
