Portland Gamecraft, a board game development company based in Portland, OR, was founded by long time gaming nerds and good friends Evan Halbert and Ryan Mauk. We have both been gaming a long time, and each co-owned different retail game stores (The Portland Game Store and Red Castle Games). We strive to make board games that incorporate just the right amount of difficulty, strategy, planning, player interaction, and fun. Every game is unique, but each has to pass our rigorous testing: would we play it together time and again and love it even when we don't win. Our laboratory and product testing space, Ryan's dining room table, has seen many nights of playing and developing our favorite board games together.
