When he was a child, Phyll used to visit her small hut overlooking the lake, sit on the bench underneath the kitchen window, and watch her brew up all manner of comestibles and concoctions. “Nanny!” he would shout, sometimes multiple times each visit, “Can I help?” No matter how many times he had said it, she would always say the same thing. “Come over here and stand next to the counter.” Dutifully, and with

The Kraken Games

Drink/Prize Design Contest Winners! Hello again SlugFans! It’s been a while since we announced this contest, and we know that some entrants have been eagerly awaiting the results.

There was so much creativity and humor on display that we really had to wrestle with our choices! In the end, we managed to agree on one clear winner, and TEN Honorable Mentions! We’re excited to share

Dungeon Decorators Gets the Father Geek Seal of Approval!

Dungeon Decorators Gets the Father Geek Seal of Approval! We are super stoked to announce that Father Geek has reviewed our upcoming release, Dungeon Decorators, and has given it the Father Geek Seal of Approval! This means that the game was enjoyed by all three of their target groups: Child Geeks, Parent Geeks and Gamer Geeks. One of the things that really drew us to the Dungeon Decorators design in the first place was the way that it appeals to casual gamers while also having enough “strategic meat” to appeal to the more hardcore crowd. So, we’re happy that such

Introducing Dungeon Decorators!

SlugFest Games is thrilled to announce a great game that we’ve been working on for the past year!

The strongest villains in the land have hired you to design their evil hideout, so you’d better not disappoint them! Two to four players compete to design the best dungeon. You’ll be drafting tiles to build your dungeon, then scoring points based on
