Ion Game Design (ION) is a Swedish board game developer, publisher & board game consultant agency. We believe in the potential of boardgames as social & creative tool. In 2018 we started a collaboration with Sierra Madre Games (SMG). Sierra Madre Games, based in Karlsruhe, Germany, develops educational family boardgames covering a broad range of subjects in science, history, prehistory, and natural history.
There are the three main divisions in the product portfolio of Ion Game Design:
Ion Game Design in collaboration with Sierra Madre Games -/SMG mainly makes “heavier” historical & scientific board games in the “hobby” category.
Ion Game Design also has a branch of lighter games, such us our smaller Viking themed abstract strategy game.
ION will look at and work with a number of “side” projects alongside the main focus area. This can be: o Partnerships with other board game developers and developers of digital games o Consultancy in (board) game design o Development of games outside main focus area (for example Hird) o Game related activities such as fairs, conventions, competitions, demonstrations to promote it’s games and generally expand the hobby
