We publish beautiful, engaging, and approachable games.
If you have designed a game that would be a good fit for Foxtrot Games, we’d love to take a look at it. Send us an email telling us about the game, ideally in the form of a sell sheet. (What is a sell sheet?)
We want games that people can play with their kids, that they’ll play with their significant other or their grown-up friends after they put their kids to bed, and that they’ll take to their gaming group as the first, lighter game of the evening.
We want games that have uplifting, family-friendly, non-violent, and unique themes — especially those that somehow celebrate what’s good in the world. We want themes that non-gamers and casual gamers can embrace.
- Ages: 8+, 10+
We want games that people will play with their kids, but we don’t want kids games. (Think somewhat deeper family games, like Ticket to Ride or Carcassonne.)
- Time: 15-30 minutes, 45-60 minutes
We want both lighter “filler” games and meatier family games.
- Players: 2, 2-4, 2-5+
We want games that play well with 2 players and no dummy player. (Some mechanisms like voting really require more than two players, and we will consider those. But our preference is for games that support 2 players.) We of course want our games to scale to as many players as possible, but we would rather support 2-4 players really well than 4-10 players in a haphazard or inconsistent way.
