Hello, Phil Eklund here, rocket engineer, professional game designer and producer, recently moved from Arizona to Germany. I specialize in “experience games”, simulations that cover a comprehensive sweep of all aspects of a subject, in unprecedented detail. Such games take a bit longer than standard eurogames, and require a bit higher intelligence. I have always been fascinated by the rules that run the world, and the first step to discovering such rules is believing that they exist.

“Sierra Madre Games is the independent publisher of games by Phil Eklund and source of many of the most innovative board game creations on some of the most innovative topics in the past decade.”
