At award-winning Edge Toy, Inc., secluded inside a hanger at Zamperini Field, we tend to lean on the side of the unconventional. Like mashing IP into unlikely products. Does the world really need another collectable chess set based on iconic characters? What if we could bring an entire world to life in a simple to learn but strategically challenging game?
Many years ago, a small group of us trekked to one of the Annapurna base camps in the Himalayas. Passing through villages along the way, we were introduced and drawn into an obscure, centuries-old game called Bagh-Chal. It’s based on 4 tigers and 20 goats – the tigers hunt down the goats while the goats attempt to block their movements. Nightly, we’d draw lines in the dirt and use rocks for pieces. Now, decades later, paying homage to that memorable and addicting game, GameVaults was born.
