Dan Verssen Games began, as you might expect, with award-winning game designer Dan Verssen.
In the 1980s, Dan realized his passion for game design while developing new rules and modifications to existing game products of that time such as D&D and Traveler.
Dan’s first published game was Modern Naval Battles and published by 3W Games in 1989. Modern Naval Battles went on to win several awards and commercial success led to the design of two supporting expansion games.
Two of Dan’s other designs, the Down in Flames series and the solitaire “Leader Series” (Hornet Leader and Apache/Thunderbolt Leader, were published by GMT Games in 1991 where they achieved both commercial and critical success.
Besides designing award-winning wargames, Dan has also designed a number of games representing popular brands including Star Trek, 7th Sea, Indiana Jones, Road Kill, Flagship and Bratz.
Over the years Dan’s designs have won several Origins Awards and more than a couple Charles S. Roberts Awards.
In 2002, Dan and his wife, Holly, made the decision to form Dan Verssen Games (DVG) where he could design and publish games that offered high production values and amazing artwork coupled with unique and compelling gaming experiences.
Since 2002, DVG has produced and published dozens titles ranging from card games to solitaire games to board wargames in print, PDF and Vassel formats.

DVG usually has about 5 games in development at any given time. As of late, we have also started to team up with talented computer game developers in order to bring some of our classic games to a whole new environment.
We hope you enjoy our games, because we certainly enjoy making them!
