Three Friends Building a Game
Since we were old enough to roll dice, we have been playing board games. We are three friends with many common hobbies: Table top role play, LARP and, of course, creating board games.
We have built many game prototypes over the years. Of "Hidden Leaders" we never grew tired, so we want to share it with You and will bring it to Kickstarter in late 2020!
