Founded in 2016, Machination Games was formed to bring people together to make connections through the fun medium of tabletop games in new and creative ways. It began as game developer Aaron Bostwick’s passion project to make a board game of his own that incorporated a few key elements from his favorite games, while also putting in his own unique twist. After much development, Aaron asked his friend Kate Laing to do the graphic design and bring his vision to life.

Machinations: A Game of Devious Schemes released on December 15th, 2018 and is now available for purchase.


We are currently in the process of developing a couple of character expansions for those who love the base game and want some new characters to play with, as well as a new trick taking card game! We also are working on being more apart of the cultureal conversation of board gaming by creating a Machination Games blog & podcast. We look forward to the future impact we can have on the tabletop community.
