"Prepare your strategies, for now we play."

The Queen Demands It!

Here at Happy Up we spend a lot of time play-testing games. And we tend to get focused on games that are good for the whole family. But every now and then we want a bit more… more depth, more details, a more immersive gaming experience.

Gathered here: A collection of games that are about strategy, planning, and quick thinking. Some of them do have a luck element, but mostly they rely on the players being smart and clever… and maybe a wee bit ruthless from time to time.

So round up some of your favorite people and get playing!
