Facade Games launched their first game, Salem, as a fun side project in spring of 2015, hoping to produce a few hundred copies for friends and family. However, when they launched the game on Kickstarter it received much more interest than expected. They held their breath and began working part time on the next game!

In early 2017, they launched Tortuga 1667 and were again overwhelmed by the support received from the Kickstarter community. Facade Games were then able to quit their day jobs (Travis as a digital marketer, Holly as a 4th grade teacher) and began making board games full time! They have now published 5 games and sold over 200,000 copies around the world! They're very grateful for the opportunity to work from home as a family and share their passion for games with the world! 

Facade Games' mission is to create games that include flawless and unique mechanics, original and interesting packaging, beautiful and intricate designs for all board game lovers! 

At Beserk, We love board games! Especially Facade's Salem 1692! A game where you hunt down the witches before you become one of them! Will you be the hero who purges your town of witches, or will you be wrongly accused and hanged for witchcraft? Or perhaps you will become a witch yourself, escape conviction, and bring Salem to the ground in hysteria!
