The Alley Cat Games team

We are an independent board game publisher.

Our first game Lab Wars launched on Kickstarter, successfully funding and going on to be featured in publications like the Wall Street Journal, Nature News, Science magazine,, and many more.


Since then we haven't looked back and have now raised over $1,000,000 through Kickstarter funding alone, with our games selling all over the world. As well as publishing our own games we also offer consultancy for aspiring designers and publishers.
