Cheapass Games (Manufacturer)
Cheapass Games is a small game company in Seattle WA. From 1996 to 2006, we produced roughly 100 games, mostly in very cheap packages, and without the generic components, like dice and paper money. From 2007 to 2011, we hibernated. Some of our games found new publishers in the game industry, and some of our games wound up out of print. We also posted a decent number of our old games as free downloads at cheapass.com. In 2012 we re-launched our publishing business, thanks to some fundraising help from Kickstarter. We started with a deluxe reprint of Unexploded Cow, then followed up with a deluxe edition of Deadwood. Along the way we also released three new games without crowdfunding: Fish Cook, Veritas, and Captain Treasure Boots.
