Who We Are
We are a big family that has grown into a business dedicated to designing and developing new board games. Fortunately enough, each of us has developed experience in a field that is necessary to succeed in any business, especially one like Smart Iguana Games, LLC.
Fields such as: Art, crafts, paint and sculpture, modern 3D Graphics design, business management and administration, and more importantly, years and years of playing and studying board games trying to compete and win against each other.
All these attributes give us the ability to create new and innovative games, develop them both intellectually and graphically, with top quality art, as well as making our own prototypes and handling the manufacturing logistics and bring them to you.
