Independent tabletop games are going through a new golden age right now. When these games begin to perform well, their creators more often than not want to see them become video games, but often don’t have the time, money or experience to fully exploit this much larger market. At Handelabra, we identify board games that have what it takes to go big, and we partner with the creators to build digital versions of their popular independent board games.
