To Keep Gaming in its Natural State: Face to Face
Here at GameWick Games, we make games to be played face to face. Games that give you and your friends an excuse to roll dice, shuffle cards, move pawns, and have a geeky good time. Our games encourage laughter, strategy, wit, imagination, and the occasional double entendre. To some, this might sound torturous or, heck, even alien, but these are the types of games that light our wick.
GameWick was launched way back in 2005, with the devious plan to self-publish WEGS, our Wickedly Errant Game System (a ruleset for tabletop sword-n-sorcery adventure). After two years of sweet playtesting, non-stop con-hopping, and lots of enthusiastic feedback, WEGS 101 Old Skool premiered at Gen Con 2007. We’ve attended every Origins Game Fair and Gen Con since, gaining new friends and fans along the way.
In 2012, we released our “other game”, Pittsburgh 68 – a creepy zombie card-n-dice game. This is only our second game released, but we’ve got more in the works. In the meantime, we’re happy to be that quirky little indie game company that is just doing their thing.
We’re keeping gaming real – and having a whole bunch of fun along the way.
