Welcome to Button Shy Games! There are a few things that you should know about us before you go any further.
We are a small board game publisher.
And when I say small, I mean small. It just me (Jason Tagmire) and some family and friends. We work out of our homes and the world's tiniest office inside of Tiki Tiki Board Games in Woodbury, NJ.
We release Wallet Games.
These are pocket-sized games (generally 18 cards or less) and they come packaged in a bi-fold wallet. They are both portable and durable, and make for great games to have on the go. Some of our most popular games have been Avignon: A Clash of Popes, Pretense and Pentaquark.
We hand assemble every single Wallet Game.
Yes, we know this is crazy, but it's also very personal. We believe in small business and enjoy making sure every game is perfect. It can be tough at times, but as long as we can sustain the demand, we'll keep hand assembling.
We release a new Wallet Game every month.
Yes, we know this is also crazy. We release 12 Wallet Games per year, one each month. We ran a Kickstarter campaign each month in 2016 and we're shifting to quarterly campaigns (these are better all around) in 2017. But if you hang around, you'll see some great new games.
That should be enough to get you started. Any questions, just let us know!
