Why We Exist

We believe that science is awe-inspiring, mesmerizing, and beautiful. We also believe that science can make our world a better place through the tools it provides. 

New knowledge and innovations in the different fields of science can address the types of resource scarcity that lead to violent conflicts, alleviate diseases at the root of much human suffering, and improve our quality of life in many ways to make our stay on Earth a more pleasant experience.  

Everything we do at Genius Games is rooted in this mission. Through the puzzles, board games, and card games we publish, we hope to introduce the world of science to the next generation of innovators, scientists, and engineers.

After leaving her hometown of Huntersville, NC, Bailey exclusively chooses to live in cities that start with an S. She graduated with a BFA in Furniture Design in Savannah, worked in the sunny city of San Jose, and is currently a graduate student in St. Louis.

While Bailey grew up playing serious board games like Chinese Checkers, it wasn’t until college that her friends introduced her to hidden indie gems like Settlers of Catan.

When Bailey isn’t managing or working on graphics, she is the go-to playtest person for the "average gamer” at the office. Bailey enjoys drinking beer, impersonating Julien Baker, and beating her coworkers in Ecosystem, which she highly recommends.
