Jolly Dutch Productions B.V. was founded in December 2017 by Alexander Kneepkens and Arnold van Binsbergen to develop and publish board and card games. The two combine their love for board games and entrepreneurship, to bring joy to families and friends by getting them around tables and playing entry-level games.
Alexander focuses on the game mechanics and gaming experience, whereas Arnold’s focus is on getting the game ready for production and marketing.
In addition to Alexander and Arnold, there are two (co-)authors so far for the Jolly Dutch games. Wolfgang Kramer is the co-author of Chartered: The Golden Age, a game descendant from Kramer’s Big Boss. Inge van Dasselaar is the co-author of Herrlof, her first game.
The artist for the frist two Jolly Dutch games was Henk-Jan Hoogendoorn. His work on Chartered: The Golden Age was his first step in the board gaming community, which he followed up with his work on Boogie Beasts.
For Herrlof the Jolly Dutch team cooperated with artist Tristam Rossin, a well respected artist with several previous board game projects completed.
