A Dream, a Passion & 3 Days to Go on Fund it...
Update posted on Sunday 3rd June '12 @ 04:06:48
As we enter the final days of our Fund it campaign we have been looking back on what has been an amazing journey punctuated by excitement, anticipation and some self-doubt along the way.
SMÖRGASBOARD® was conceived some two years ago now, when Richard had begun another year on the daily commute to Dublin. He had always dreamed of running his own creative business and after spending Christmas eating and playing board games with friends and family, he had an idea. From there, RichArt and SMÖRGASBOARD® were born.
Having shared the idea with Maggie, we set about developing and designing SMÖRGASBOARD®. Months of sketches and brainstorming ensued until finally we had devised the mechanics of the game and our four key categories, namely 4BIDDEN-FRUIT™, KITCHEN-KAOS™, NUÜDLE-DOODLE™ and TASTO-QUEST™. Maggie carefully researched and selected the questions to ensure we had the perfect mix of knowledge and fun, and then we set about prototyping the game.
Although we were delighted with our efforts so far, our most perfect creation arrived last May, when baby Tom was born and SMÖRGASBOARD® had to take a back seat until we came up with a way of juggling nappies, night-feeds and developing the game. It wasn’t long before Tom was on board and it was clear that he was going to be a devoted foodie too!
The next phase was game testing SMÖRGASBOARD® and until now our top secret project hadn’t been seen by the outside World. What would others make of our new board game? Would they think we were crazy? Thankfully, we weren’t the only ones that loved SMÖRGASBOARD® and many fun nights were spent cooking, eating and sharing SMÖRGASBOARD® with friends & family. We were ready to take our game to the next level but weren’t sure how to get there.
The answer came in the form of Fund it and it’s fantastic platform for new and exciting projects to gain support and funding from fans and followers across the globe.
To put the game into production we would need to raise €8,500 from fellow foodies and board game fans. 39 days into our campaign and we’re at 76% of target. We quite literally couldn’t have come this far without each and every one of our Fantastic Funders, and for that we thank you all most sincerely.
With just 3 days to go, we’re within a dice’s throw of crossing the line, but we still need to raise €1,960 to get SMÖRGASBOARD® into production.
To give SMÖRGASBOARD® every chance of succeeding, please help us spread the word by telling your friends, family & fellow foodies all about www.smorgasboard.ie. The project closes on Wednesday, 6th June!
Fingers and toes crossed we’ll be sending you your shiny new copy of SMÖRGASBOARD® really soon!

It’s now 7 days since we rolled the dice on SMÖRGASBOARD® and it’s already reached 41% thanks to our truly Fantastic Funders! We really were delighted to receive such an amazing response to the project over the last few days and would like to say a huge thank you to all our funders so far for taking a bite of the action and for helping us to spread the word about SMÖRGASBOARD®.
In addition to promoting the project, we have been busy working on our foodie’s calendar and the SMÖRGASBOARD® Recipe Ideas for our rewards, and also making plans for the final design of the game board.
