We are a new game design and publishing company focused on making "gateway games": games that are easy and fun for traditional boardgamers (e.g. Monopoly players), but interesting and strategic for serious gamers. At Knightweaver Games, we hope to draw J.Q. Public into the wider world of great games.
2/21/12: Though all has been quiet on my web announcements, all has not been quiet in my mad workshop. New games are coming, this time for your iPhone.
