Got an award for a game
« on: December 18, 2010, 12:40:21 am »
This thread is not about a calc game or a computer game, but rather about a board game.

Back in 2007, me and some friends started a Junior Achievement company named "Les Jeux Enjeux", we started with a nice little idea for a board game about environment and the such. So we produced this game from A to Z and sold it everywhere. Rapidly, this game got some fame, eventually getting recognized on provincial TV and even provincial instances.

So today (or yesterday, it's confusing when it's 12AM...) we got this award, it took so long to get it, but we got it: The Canadian Chamber of Commerce Company of the Year Award 2007-2008.

That is, the highest recognition a Junior Achievement company could get (and I don't know how much of such companies there is in Canada, but I bet there is a lot), comes with a certificate and a congratulations/apologize letter from the president of Junior Achievement Canada. I'm so happy. Also it's fun to meet people I didn't saw since 2½ years...

Yeah, I think I have that somewhere, pics, the ad (which never actually went to TV) and the Salut Bonjour video.

I am curious about that too. I personally am not much into board games, though. Is it available in most stores like Renaut-Bray?

Well, since it's a Junior Achievement company, we had to close it at the end of the year, the 250 copies we made were sold to the four ends of the province of Québec, but I always had the idea to restart it sometime and making a 2nd edition...
