About Featherstone Games
Hi! I'm Joel and I own Featherstone Games and run it with my family. (Walt 12, my wife Allison and Lily, 9)
Featherstone Games was born out of a desire to get my kids and in-laws playing more complicated games more quickly.
I began designing my first game Winterhaven Woods in 2018, to help my son learn to booster draft Magic the Gathering when he was about six. Since then, I have focused on entry level gameplay, with enough strategy to keep seasoned gamers interested and excited to play.
My games are what I would consider "level up" games, that layer together mechanics and theme in a way that makes more complicated gameplay approachable. Upon first glance a lot of players think, "Wow that was easy to learn." but about halfway through the second game I hear the "Oh! I could do this with this card too." as they uncover all the nuances to the strategy they didn't see the first time through. That's what I feel like a great game should be: Easily accessible for someone new, but full of interesting choices for someone with more experience with games.
Our games are a great way to share your love of gaming with friends and family, and if you do try one of our titles, send us a note and let us know what you thought! 🦊 - Joel
