I could use some help with a concept I`m about to put together. I have an idea for a board game (not technically a game).
Well, without going into the details, I`ll use something from another industry. Say you wanted to create a "Goals Board". Some type of board you hang on your wall and you chart your goals and the steps required to achieve each goal.
Each time you achieve a goal, you reward yourself with whatever and you document that reward on the board. Each time you fail to do something you outlined you`d do, you`d lose some points.
Now that you have a general idea, is this something that can be patented? Or would this fall under trademarks.
I`m looking at developing a system for families that uses a board to chart certain things. The board will have different areas for each person involved where you can visibly see the progress of the individual. It`s more of a "rewards type system" but it`s on a board.
I`m having a design drafted and I`m testing the model with my family over the next 60 days to get the kinks all worked out. I believe their is a huge market for this product but don`t know the process to take to protect my idea.
Any advice is appreciated.
