Board game

Process for a board and skill game

To begin this process, you must obtain our file opening kit by clicking on the link at the bottom of this page. For a detailed description of this service, please refer to our « Guide pratique de l’inventeur ».

Step 1. Brief analysis of the game

The main purpose of this analysis of the various components of your game is to guide you in your future endeavors. Once your file has been opened, our evaluator will study the information contained in your confidential disclosure form and write a 15-page report containing comments, suggestions and recommendations.

180$ + tax (frais d’ouverture de dossier inclus)

Step 2. Copyright registration

Board games are generally protected by copyright registration. Once registered, your game is protected internationally for up to 50 years after your death. It should be noted that skill games and certain board games that include a mechanism may be protected by patent. If this is the case, the analysis report will mention it.

250$ + tax (registration tax included)

Our free, no-obligation file opening kit includes a "Confidential Disclosure" form and a confidentiality agreement pre-signed by Daniel Paquette, President of Inventarium.
