Indie Boards and Cards has merged with Action Phase Games.

The two US firms will unite key personnel into a single games publishing house.

The teams will work together on releasing new games under the Indie Boards and Cards imprint while the Action Phase Games brand will continue to be the home for the Heroes Wanted line of games and other select projects.

“Having experienced tremendous growth over the past seven years, Indie Boards and Cards was at a critical point,” said Travis Worthington, CEO of Indie Boards and Cards.

“I just couldn’t keep up with our existing business and continue to grow the company without bringing on a very talented group of game designers and developers. Travis R. Chance and Nick Little are excellent additions, with a proven track record of making great games and providing great convention coverage and customer support. Together we are going to be unstoppable."

Travis R. Chance, director of product development and marketing at Indie Boards and Cards, added: “I am very excited to be working within Indie Boards and Cards.

“We now have access to financial resources and market reach that we never had before and are looking to expand the number and quality of games we release each year. Ever since the news of merger discussions started to spread, we’ve been seeing a lot more game designs from both established and first time game designers.”

Indie Boards and Cards will continue to operate out of Oakland, California and have a regional office in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The firm will have a major presence at the Origins, GenCon and Essen conventions later this year.
