Welcome to the official web site of 9 Kingdoms Publications, publisher of great games.

9 Kingdoms began when Ivan Turner began developing the 9 Kingdoms Miniatures Adventure system. For 3 years, he tested and revised this system, playing different scenarios at local gaming conventions. Ultimately, the system proved too expansive for production and Ivan turned his attention toward card games.

With the help of Peter Spano, who'd helped him develop the 9 Kingdoms Miniatures Adventure system, and artist Chris Hanson, Ivan began working on ApocalypZe. As ApocalypZe began to take shape, Ivan, Pete, and Chris realized that the game needed to be published. They brought on Neil Hoffman for his business expertise and 9 Kingdoms Publications was born.

ApocalypZe was almost two years in development before it went to Kickstarter in June of 2013. With a small funding goal of $5,000, the game was quickly successful and far exceeded expectations. Kickstarter backers had their games in hand before Christmas of 2013 and the retail version of ApocalypZe hit the shelves in February of 2014.

Since the release of ApocalypZe, 9 Kingdoms Publications has grown internally. We have a pipeline of games that are in various stages of development and testing. Our next game to go to Kickstarter will be Titans of Empyrean. That campaign will launch February 17, 2015. Shortly thereafter, we will be launching Keep Calm, a hilarious party game.
