Thrown (Spring 2019)

Thrown is a trick-taking game with a new way to play into a trick, namely by using dice!


The colors of the dice represent the suits. The lead player rolls 1-3 dice of a color (the suit), then the other players try to roll in-suit to get the highest value on the table. If you do not have the right suit, then you can roll for trump; rolling a natural 6 on one of your dice in an off-suit will beat the highest value in-suit.


Winning a trick gives you gold. The game ends following a number of rounds played equal to the number of players, at which time whoever has the most gold wins.


But wait, there are cards in the game, too! These cards give special abilities which are paid for, or activated with, dice of particular colors. Some of the effects include flipping your dice or an opponent's dice to their opposite sides, removing dice, re-rolling dice, and automatically winning with a particular roll!


Pikoko (Spring 2018)


Featuring 3‐dimensional peacocks! Strut your tail feathers in this clever game of gambling and reading the room. Pikoko is a trick‐taking card game for serious and casual gamers, featuring a peacock that holds your cards for you so that you are the only player who cannot see them.


Players must then bet on who will take how many tricks, based on the cards they can see in their opponents hands.


Doodle Rush (2017)


Doodle Rush is a fast-paced party game for three to six players aged 10 years and up. This game will make you forget the word “boredom” because it is loud, sometimes hectic and always super fun — an energizing addition to any friends or family event.


Each player has to draw the words written on his cards and then guess what others have drawn. The game consists of three drawing rounds and three guessing rounds that each take one minute and follow each other with no pause. A genuine adrenaline rush!

Big Bazar (Summer 2017)


Check your reflexes! Ready? Set! Play! Be the first to spot same color cards and find the right answer to win them! How many legs are visible? What does it rhyme with? Who is the heaviest? Be careful as the instructions keep changing! It’s a Big Bazaar!
Object of the game: As soon as two cards of the same color are revealed, be the first
to give the correct answer. Collect the most cards before the end of the game! But beware! The rules keep changing, the game becomes complicated and the answers are never the same!

2019 and beyond!

At least two more of my games are scheduled for worldwide release in 2019, but details are under wraps for now!


I am constantly seeking new licensing deals with publishers to bring my other games to market - so hopefully plenty more coming soon!
