ZenoGames was started by Bill Stackpole, a 25-year veteran of the computer industry, and an avid miniatures and card gaming enthusiast. While trying out new commercial games on his friends, Bill began to design his own line of strategy games with a basic principle in mind; Keep It Simple. His first strategy game design, Stronghold Raiders™, was a big hit at the 2001 CAPCON gaming convention, and is currently in development.
ZenoGames' first card game to enter the gaming market was Virus Alert!™, released mid-summer 2001. This non-trading card game parodies computers and computer viruses, and offers fast game play, and competitive strategy.
