Hammerdog Games and Fundamental Games will join forces to bring a slate of new products to market in 2023 and 2024 beginning with the board game “Forge.” Forge is a medium weight Euro for 1 to 4 players. Featuring tableau building and worker placement mechanics, Forge allows players to take the role of medieval blacksmiths intent on improving their craft. Forge sports high quality components including multiple game boards, 147 cards, and over 80 wooden pieces. It is produced and intended for the tabletop retail market.
Hammerdog Games has long term market presence and distribution experience and will represent Forge to the marketplace. FunDaMental Games has experience with crowdfunding and production and will represent Forge on Kickstarter.
Hammerdog Games owner Danny O’Neill said, “I am thrilled to be able to work together with FunDaMental Games to bring Forge to market. Our skills and experience complement each other, and I’m excited by how quickly we were able to create a world-class board game with Forge. I think it will be well received in the marketplace, and I couldn’t be happier for our first joint venture.”
FunDaMental Games owner Wes Woodbury said, “I’m excited to work together with a veteran company like Hammerdog Games. Together we are going to be able to offer some great games to the marketplace. Neither company could have produced Forge at the level of quality that it deserves to be at, but together we can do that and more.”
