KanDi Games LLC is a small indie gaming company originally formed in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1990. After a 25 year hiatus, and relocating to the Tri-Cities in beautiful South Eastern Washington State, we have decided to re-enter a very different gaming market than the limited and very insular SA market of the early 90's.
1990: Our first title was GOLDFIXTM, a corporate sponsored financial board game, based on an original concept, but highly modified to suit the sponsor's requirements. Over 220,000 custom playing pieces from unreliable suppliers and last minute extensive artwork changes were responsible for missing some major deadlines to get the game into the commercial marketplace - a missed golden opportunity!!
2018: The updated version of GOLDFIXR is in the final stages of development and testing, and has been totally redesigned to re-incorporate all the concepts from the original format, and updated for multi-player PC play using Unity 3D and Photon. There are now a total of 12 levels of play, including 4 Family friendly modes, guaranteed to help your kids get a fun intro into Business 101. For those serious gamers who demand tough entrepreneurial challenges there are 2 Advanced and 2 Business modes, guaranteed to help develop and sharpen your financial business skills along the way.
In addition to these 8 base levels there are also QUICKSTART options to reduce playing time, and FASTBULLION to guarantee trading opportunities from the first roll of the die.
The Unity 3D engine performs all financial transactions automatically, allowing GOLDFIXR to let you manage your business, NOT your calculator!!
1991: INTRIGUE was our next title, another board game but this time of the Murder/ Mystery variety, not so much a Whodunnit, but more of a Youdunnit. INTRIGUE was developed for an adult Radio Station that were looking for a product to promote within their popular Murder/Mystery genre, which included dinners, weekend getaways and murder trains etc.
INTRIGUE provided an opportunity to join in with some of the dastardly fun in the comfort of your own home, and was possibly the only board game with a poem on the box cover!
1992: FRAUDTM was the final game originally produced in South Africa, a fun card game, simple to learn and quick to play, and it proved hugely popular in the very limited South African market. Some 2017 reprints of the original 1992 format are still available to purchase, and utilize the new 2017 free ez-FRAUD scoring apps.
2017: This reprint didn't raise the required level of interest or funds on Kickstarter on it's initial re-launch, but since all the artwork is complete it could easily be reprinted if the demand was there. This 2017 reprint is an improved configuration of the original format, to speed up game play. Also the scoring methodology has been updated, no more pen and paper, but now with slick, easy and free ez-FRAUD scoring apps available in both the Google and Apple Stores, or a ez-FRAUD MS Excel spreadsheet if you prefer a PC version.
FRAUDTM - Sometimes it's a short ride from the Big House to the Jail House!! Ask Bernie!!!
