About us

Ion Game Design (ION)

“We are dedicated to creating the most legendary board game experience...ever.”


We are a Swedish board game developer, publisher, & board game consultant agency. We believe in the potential of board games as social, educational and creative tools. We design and publish board games in several areas, covering a broad range of subjects in history (such as prehistory, recorded history, natural history and the history not yet written) and in natural science (such as astronomy, biology and earth science).

We value a link to reality/science/history, not only as a backdrop but also as a basis for game mechanic design. In our games we strive to achieve unscripted narrative experiences generated by the content and the players’ minds and interaction as they play.

In line with our vision to spread the wonderful world of board gaming experience to as many as possible, we also have a segment about collaborations:

ION:VENTURE - We will from time to time work with potential projects alongside our main labels through consultancy in (board) game design, development of games outside our three main focus areas, partnerships with other board game developers and developers of digital games and game related activities such as fairs, conventions, competitions, demonstrations to promote it’s games and generally expand the hobby, or business ideas that do not necessarily include game design but that do include games.
