MATAGOT GAMES HISTORY

Matagot Games was founded by Hicham Ayoub Bedran in 2005, with the publication of RPG games Cendres and Te Deum for a Massacre. Hicham was joined by Arnaud Charpentier soon after and the company releases their first board games, Expedition Atiplano and Tomahawk, in 2006. Since then, the company has gone on to release several top-selling board games, each split into their five product categories: Expert, Gateway, Family, Kids and Role-Playing Games. One of Matagot Games' most entertaining game is Takenoko, otherwise known as 'The Panda Game'. This board game has won several awards, including the Golden Geek Award for Artwork and Presentation in 2012. 

MATAGOT GAMES FRANCHISE

As we've already touched upon, Matagot Games split their catalogue into five different gaming categories. Examples from their expert category include Xi'an, Aeon's End and Alien Artifacts. Heading into the family range, Matagot Games suggest titles such as Meeple Circus, Takenoko and River Dragons. For those of you who are relatively new to the hobby, Matagot suggest taking a look at games such as Room 25 and Raptor. One of the best-selling games from this French publisher is Captain Sonar. In this co-operative game, you and your friends take on the role of a submarine crew. A new family version of the game, simply known as Sonar, was released this year.

Time for an underwater game of cat-and-mouse, with each of the two teams in Sonar competing to be the first to deal two points of damage to the other.

In River Dragons, you want to move your pawn over a system of bridge-like planks to the other side of the board. An easy task!
