Pocket Sports Football (yes, it's the American kind of football this time) has been building momentum for a few months now. While it's still in the final playtesting phase, it's coming together to be a level of game!

 

You all know we make dice games. The minimalist appr...

What a year!

 

2014 saw the release of games 5 & 6, Pocket Rugby & Pocket Basketball bringing a mix of mechanics from the previous games. We wanted to improve the opponent inclusion in the games and these two games saw some changes.

I'm as eager as everyone for the new games to arrive at the end of the month. The New Edition Rugby has had a quick turnaround from originally being published as Pocket Rugby League in May, transforming into a hybrid version with both League & Union rules for our UK d...

I've always wanted to make a baseball game. After Pocket Cricket was designed, crossing over the mechanics of hitting choice (conservative/aggressive) seemed like an obvious transition.

 

Not being a diehard baseball fan though, I needed more time and feedback from cousi...

Each new game I design tends to start the same way, but finishes in ways I hadn't considered when beginning.

 

Pocket Tennis is nice, simple and captures a solid tennis theme. Two players, back and forth. The dice will tell you much of what's happening but I've inclu...

Beta version - feedback would be great! Playtesters would rock the ring!


Pocket Boxing Rules

The game is fast, fun and exciting. Suitable for one or two players. A pen & paper is all you need to keep track of damage, knock downs and rounds. 3 minute rounds for 5...
