Plaid Hat Games


Plaid Hat Games LLC is a hobby gaming company founded by game designer Colby Dauch. We are new to the scene, but we are coming out swinging with the release of our very first game - Summoner Wars. Our goal as a game company is simple: Make games that you will love to play. And by you we mean those of you who play games to have FUN, to ENGAGE others, and to CHALLENGE yourself. (If you are one of those dreadfully boring types that hate the sound of dice rolling across a table and prefer their games to only come in shades of brown, we´re probably not what you are looking for.) So how will we achieve our goal of making games that you love to play? Well, I´m glad I asked that question. We have a formula, and I´d like to share it with you. This is our simplified list of what we feel is required to make a great game.

A Great Game:

1. Is fun

2. Creates an opportunity for you to make interesting, engaging, and challenging decisions that affect the outcome of the game in your favor

3. Allows you to directly engage the other players at the table

4. Is thematic (Games should tell stories. They should draw their players into exciting worlds and put them in adventurous roles)

5. Is unique

6. Is pretty (And by pretty, we mean they should look frickin´ sweet! You know, like something you´d want to play)
