    "Emily Care Boss designs beautiful games about the most important thing in the world: love. Her games are so strong, so obviously right, so elegant and well crafted, that you forget how important they are in the joy of playing them." Kenneth Hite, Designer of NIGHT'S BLACK AGENTS

    I played a game of  Breaking the Ice  on my honeymoon! It's a really fun game and great for both experienced role-players and non-gamers. Kat Jones, Designer of REVIVED and SLAYER CAKE

    Shooting the Moon's  wonderful focus on the unstable triangle of two competing suitors and one occasionally bewildered but always beguiling beloved is a perfect recipe for excitement and romance. You can confidently plunge into Jane Austen or dinosaur wrestling, and Shooting the Moon will deliver every time. Jason Morningstar, Designer of FIASCO and NIGHT WITCHES
