Forged by Geeks was founded to create high quality board games for the discerning gamer.  We strive to deliver rich experiences that are both unique and fun to play.

Anthony Hanses and Rico Hall have known each other since the 4th grade and worked together on many small projects.  In 2015, Anthony Hanses left his job in Software Program Management and Rico Hall left security services to start up Forged by Geeks LLC.

Our first released game, Defense Grid: The Board Game, is scheduled to release in June 2018.

In addition, we create exclusive streaming content for Twitch and YouTube for board games using a custom developed application for managing dynamic overlays.

Rico Hall

The genius behind most of our game mechanics and designs.  He is the master of fun, but a little camera shy.
