Sir Whimsy

“Matt Worden Games” is my Minnesota-based card and board game design and publishing company focused on family-friendly strategy games.

The board game industry is several decades into an amazing boom that has included an ever-improving standard in design and production quality. My goal with MWG is to incorporate the best of these innovations into games that will connect with a wider audience and introduce new people to this enriching form of entertainment.

I’ll organize most of my products into three categories:

  • Level 1 – Casual Games – “Casual” games are easy to learn and fast to play. They come in a smaller package, take less than 30 minutes to play, and cost $10-$25.
  • Level 2 – Strategy Games – My mid-level “Strategy” games add some additional complexity. They come in medium-sized boxes, take 30-60 minutes to play, and cost $20-$50.
  • Level 3 – Big Games – “Big” games are meaty, immersive games that come in a big box, with lots of components, take 60+ minutes to play, and cost $40 and up.

All of my products will available through purchase through the shop at

While the start of 2018 marked a bit of reboot for MWG, with more of a focus on publishing new products, I also have plans to update and relaunch some of my popular older titles (like Dicey Curves and Jump Gate) over the next couples years.  Check out the Accolades page for examples of our successful games over the years.

You can stay up-to-date with what I have happening on a near-daily basis through my Facebook Page, Twitter feed, and Instagram feed.  I also have a serveral-times-per-year newsletter as well.
