Genius Games - Who We Are

Genius Games is a game design company that strives to publish high quality table-top games and children's that are both entertaining and educational. Traditionally, games are meant only for entertainment and are therefore not normally played inside school. School is meant to educate, but traditionally it hasn’t been very fun. Our hope is to design games that are a blast to play, but simultaneously demystify intimidating concepts in the sciences and engage the players in a lifelong process of inquiry.

Shelley Spence – Project Manager

Shelley Spence taught in K-12 classrooms for 5 years before joining the Genius Games team in 2015 and was an avid gamer long before that. Her experiences in the classroom instilled her with a joy for encouraging students to ask questions about reality, so she is thrilled to be part of creating games and books that merge hard science with play.
