Who We Are

Water Bear Games is a tabletop games company located in Omaha, Nebraska. Our mission statement is, “Create games to bring people together irl.” As much fun as it is to play video games online, we think the best kind of get-togethers are ones where you hang out with your friends outside of your monitors. By bringing together the nerdiness of games and the social interaction of parties, board games are the best!
