Into the Flow

Everything but digital games

What we aim for

lightbulb

Our games must give competitive players the chance to master the game and give casual players the feeling that they are enjoying themselves.

 

The goals of the games are so evident, that when someone plays the game for the first time, he/she will remember the rules of the game instantly.

 

These factors enhance the involvement and that's how you get into the flow !

Face-to-face interaction

Digital games miss out a crucial aspect where we stand for: face-to-face interaction. Our social games create a collective game experience which these games can't offer.

 

Next to our existing BOARD GAMES with novel points of view and unique GAME EXPERIENCES, we also design TAILOR MADE games for distinct teams, events and even locations.

 

Into the flow designs inventive board games and game experiences, where direct interaction are key. Our goal is to find the interface between recreation and effort.

Game experiences

Shiro

gallery/2017-12-28 21_11_00-japanese gate garden - google zoeken

Think of feudal Japan, of the conquest of a central fortress and of outdoor games as Kubb: behold Shiro (Japanese word for fortress)! Kubb is cool, Mölkky is tactical, but Shiro will be the next level. Ambush the fortress with your clan members and make sure your leader is the first to capture the fortress and beware of the samurai and the deadly ninja.

 

Play it as a singles game up to 6 players (in 2 teams) or as a tournament spanning several days with adapted rules. 

 

Shiro: a game for unpredictable tacticians with ballistic skills from 8 years on!
