Description Edit | History

In 1977, Metagaming Concepts introduced their Microgame line, beginning with OGRE. Each game consisted of a 4-fold hex map, a counter sheet, and a rule booklet, all in a ziplock bag for $2.95. They were portable, playable, and accessible. Unfortunately, Metagaming Concepts went bankrupt after less than a decade.

Fast forward 30 years. Board games have seen a colossal explosion in size, weight, intricacy, and price. But not everyone has the energy, time, or finances to access these games. The goal for Pocket Option Games is to reintroduce microgames – small, lightweight, fun games that can be produced and delivered anywhere in the world for a bargain price. $2.95 in 1977 US dollars, adjusted for inflation, is $11.62 in 2015 US dollars, so that’s the Pocket Option Games upper limit. If I can’t fit a game into that price point, then it’s not a pocket option.

Buy it for the cost of lunch, slip it under the cover of a book, in the corner of a handbag, or into a jacket pocket. You won’t break your back carrying it, or your pocket book buying it. That’s what makes it a pocket option
