Board Game


Hit the slopes in Alpenglow: a thrilling Ski Resort strategy board game for 2 to 5 tycoons. Build your ski area and master the mountain.

Alpenglow is a board game created with the purpose of combining the excitement of ski resorts with board games. A long drive to a Christmas Tree farm and a lively discussion along the way resulted in a decently heavy euro-style strategy game that has hints of Lisboa, Great Western Trail, Obsession, and Pipeline mixed together with the crisp mountain air and fresh powder skiers love.

Alpenglow is the product of an obsession to build a game, drawing from my research and studies on complexity theory and games/play in the design of cities.

The game is in pre-production we are currently play-testing (reach out if you are in Portland, Oregon). It is going to be self published by Waterworks Games. Lear more about the game at
