Well, we'd prefer to ask why not?
We're passionate about games, and to be fair, get just as heated as the next human from time to time while playing. But at the end of the day they are just games, there for entertainment.
We're not going to solve world peace, or much else if we're to be honest about it, but we WILL help you have hours of entertainment and fun with the very best games that can be made!

All of our games are thoroughly play-tested and developed to ensure
many hours of quality gaming.
We want to make games that others won't. We believe our unique

Rugby: The Game was a concept that Zane of ZPG has worked on for a number of years. After playing a great many board games, he was playing with his son one day and wondered if anyone else had combined his two passions.
There was little around the world that seemed to hit the mark, and so development began. It was / has been / is a major feat to develop a professional level game after-hours and on the odd weekend, but here we are; mission accomplished in half a decade!
The major challenge in the game development has been the merging of two activities that don't mix easily. On the one hand, a great many board game players aren't overly excited about rugby. On the other hand, there aren't a lot of footy players that like to sit down to a nice relaxing board game after some structured pugilism.
WAIT! Did we say relaxing? Forget about that, Rugby The Game is fast paced and full of all of the excitement of the real deal! The only thing we are missing is the smell of sweat on the field, and lineament in the changing room, but feel free to bring both and make it authentic!
