Joshua is the co-founder and design lead for Stormhammer Games, an independent Canadian board game design studio. Working with artists and other developers he aims to create games that strike a balance between the social and strategic aspect of playing board games.
Althingi (launching soon) is a game based around the historic gathering of Viking Age Icelanders at Þingvellir (The Assembly Field). Email the Stormhammer Team if you'd like to sign up as a Beta playtester!
Halls of Asgard (in production) is a semi-cooperative social strategy game based on the Norse Myths. Each player takes up the role of one of the Norse gods and works together (or not!) to claim warriors for Ragnarok before Hela, Queen of the Dead, storms the realm of Asgard. It is currently in the final stages of production.
Shield Wall (in playtesting) is a quick two player game set in Viking Age Norway. Take on the role of either Ragnar or Ragnhild and fight for the Jarldom of Hardangerfjord! Shield Wall is currently being playtested in Edmonton and Nanaimo.
The Floksmenn of Fugloy (in playtesting) is a four player game for Vikings as young as six! The Floksmenn of the Faroe Islands were famous for denouncing the Danish King and living as renegades on the most remote island of the Faroes, a little-known place called Fugloy. The only sustenance to be found on the unforgiving island is the cheese produced by their unruly goats. To make matters worse, they have disturbed the Land Spirits that haunt the island. Chase goats, appease Land Spirits, make cheese, and avoid goat poop as you try to fill your hall with cheese before the others! The Floksmenn of Fugloy is currently being playtested in Nanaimo.
