The GEMJI system is designed as the best multifunctional board game in the world, as well as an innovative learning tool.

The game is a favorite family item, fascinating for young and old, and cherished to be passed down from generation to generation. One set is enough for interacting with one person to a company of 20. GEMJI is suitable for people with visual challenges.

The tabletop game engine consists of 70 magnetic tiles that gives you the freedom to play multiple games - 30 games and 7 building building models. An engineering challenge is the magnetic mechanism combining each tile especially on such a narrow area. Games include original titles developed by the GEMJI team, educational games, and popular classic game adaptations.

The idea was catalyzed in detail by Margarit (Mark) Ralev at the end of 2016. The following years were marked by thousands of hours of experimentation and personal investment. At the end of 2019 GEMJI participated in the largest exhibition for board games in the world - "Spiel" in Essen, Germany. It was immediately identified as unlike any other on the market. At the end of 2020, through several channels, Margarit managed to raise over 65,000 dollars from hundreds of fans. The funds went for the production of the first more serious batch.

The goal is to secure funding for new tooling, robotic manufacturing, inventory investment, marketing, etc. to transform the game from a boutique and hard-to-find product into affordable entertainment available in every major city in the world.
