Our games aim to:

  • Appeal to a wide age range
  • Be playable in a relatively short time (from 5 to 45 minutes) 
  • Encourage social interaction with 2 or more players
  • Improve problem solving, negotiation and strategic planning skills
  • Be enjoyable!

This is a pilot collection; we'll gauge the popularity of these games to see if we should extend availability and increase the variety of games available. Love the collection? Let us know!
