It was almost exactly one year ago that the Canopy Kickstarter wrapped up, and although the print run has faced a few delays, we are excited that Canopy is done being manufactured and will soon be on ships bound for US and European ports. While initially aiming for a retail release in this month, the game will hopefully be available in hobby stores around the world in October 2021.
For more info on Canopy check out our pre-order store (only available for customers in the USA at this time) and sign up for our mailing list below.

We are very excited to announce our newest game “Canopy” will go live on Kickstarter on June 23rd. Canopy is a game for 2, where players compete to grow the most bountiful rainforest. The jungle ecosystem is full of symbiosis and mutualism and players must grow tall trees and lush jungle plants to attract the most diverse wildlife. By carefully selecting what grows in your forest you can create the ideal balance of flora and fauna and create a thriving rainforest.

The new expansion to March of the Ants has just launched! We are extremely excited to share the newest additions to the Meadow with all of you. Introducing two new card types and featuring fantastic art by some of the best board game artists, the new expansion is packed with strategy and flavor.
Before the spring thaws it is clear that things are different in the colony. Mutations have occurred and the colonies are rapidly changing. When the ants emerge into the Meadow they are visibly different and have developed unique adaptations.
While the ants explore above ground much is happening below the surface of the Meadow. The colonies are expanding and digging new nest chambers to grow new specialized workers.
Each colony must fend for itself as they carve out their evolutionary niche in the constantly shifting environment of the Meadow.
Welcome Young Heroes!

You know that feeling when you have been exercising for hours and you are tired but energized, when your body is depleted but you have acclimated to the effort and are boosted by endorphins and the joy of a challenge? Pure. Adrenaline. That is how we feel right now! This campaign has been a marathon six-legged march and all our backers have carried us farther than we thought possible; we are left pleasantly exhausted and full of gratitude and excitement to get this game made.
