Grandpa Beck’s Games

Grandpa Beck’s Games grew out of a family’s love of playing games with loved ones, believing that time spent playing games with family is time spent building relationships, learning life lessons, and making memories. Starting out of a desire to improve upon the classic games they were playing, the journey from hobbyist to creator to publisher was challenging, but rewarding. Today, Grandpa Beck’s Games are a way for their family to create a connection with yours. They make games that they love to play with their family, and hope you will, too!

This year, Grandpa Beck’s Games contributed some classics: Skull King, Cover Your Kingdom, and The Bears and the Bees!

In this classic trick-taking game, players simultaneously need to predict how many tricks they will win in a round. Predict each round how many tricks you think you can win after taking a look at your cards. Get your bid correct and you’ll gain points! Get it wrong, and you’re out of luck!

Cover Your Kingdom

Designed by Jeffery Beck, art by David Bock and Apryl Stott

Cover Your Kingdom is an absurdly ruthless set-collection party game for 2-8 players ages 9+. Your mission in this adventure is to gain Magic for your Kingdom. To achieve this you’ll need to form Clans of Punderful creatures, like Uniquehorns, Peglegasus, Pigxies, or LepreCon Men, by forming them in pairs.

Special Creatures with powerful abilities add to the fun, making Cover Your Kingdom is the perfect game for almost any party. Be warned though, it’s HIGHLY competitive. You might even say it’s Magically Malicious!
