OUR VISION

War Games LV is committed to breaking through the tabletop game market with inspiring and captivating games. We aim to promote critical thinking and to expose deeper truths about inter- and intrapersonal connections, cultivating a new generation of relational thinkers.

 

Revolutionizing the tabletop game industry isn’t our only goal. We also want to foster a moral business environment which breeds belief and support in the company itself. We are capping financial compensation for any executive position at the amount of the lowest paid full-time employee. We believe leaders are meant to eat last, not first. We will also be donating 10% of our profits to meaningful charities and organizations in our community. These donations will not be used as a tax break, as we believe charity should be given freely and honestly, and not as a means to dodge other obligations.

 

Finally, War Games LV is working to build a global community. Our goal is to bring our ideas into an area of open discussion and contemplation, and to share our personality as a group with the world. Interacting with our community will keep us honest and mindful of those listening to us, so that we may better connect with each other and focus on bringing the best ideas to each game we create.

OUR STORY

We are War Games, a Las Vegas tabletop game design and publishing company founded in 2021 by a close-knit group of college friends. Our debut game, Proliferation: The Game of Nuclear Strategy, started out as a passion project written on index cards in early 2020 when the unexpected happened: a global virus shut down almost every city around the world. Between school shutdowns and employment instability, we found ourselves with a lot of extra time on our hands. After a year of play testing with our close friends during lockdowns, Proliferation became our favorite strategy game, pushing the balance between diplomacy and nuclear warfare. 


When we realized that others loved playing Proliferation as much as we did, we took a leap of faith and decided to turn our handmade, wine-stained prototype into a reality. We launched a Kickstarter campaign in May 2021, eventually meeting our goal of raising $50,000. Since then our team has grown, and we have been hard at work finalizing the game mechanics and card designs, striving to make Proliferation one of the most entertaining tabletop games ever created.
