Board&Dice designs, develops, and publishes family and strategy board games.
We aim to make interesting, deep and diverse games, each being a unique experience, and each sporting its own flavor and an engaging theme.
In November, 2018, NSKN Games (founded in April, 2011) and Board&Dice (founded in December, 2013) joined forces by merging the two publishing houses under the Board&Dice brand. Inspired by historical characters, events, or locations, or reaching far into the world of the fantastical, games published by Board&Dice cater to all different types of gamers: from the more casual family gamer to the hardcore hobby gamer on the hunt for the ultimate gaming experience!
Meet the Team
Our team consists of creative individuals who enjoy the process of inventing and innovating when developing board games.
Ola MenioProject Manager
Seals. The greatest animals known to mankind. At least Ola thinks so. Perhaps due to their common interests: food and resting. However, as we all know, there are no rest for the wicked ... or Operational Managers. At Board&Dice, Ola is trying her best to make each project successful ... on time, that is, with the whole crew (ideally) still alive and breathing. She is managing weekly planning, keeps the tasks ... on task, and distributes hugs among the team members. RPG player, videogame lover, and cheesecake enthusiast.

She prefer eurogames but loves areacontroll as well. She loves to travel, trek in the mountains and cover miles on my bike (maybe not as much as Irek, but any activity is important, right?).
