We Aim to Deliver intriguing and interesting board games, card games and tabletop RPGs.



Canterbury Games Studio is the dream of three nerds to avoid the harsh realities of life, by diving into the harsh realities of the Indie game business.


The spiritual and occasionaly geographical home of our company is historic Canterbury, England, a place where we spent too much time playing games.


We have years of gaming experience and the creative impulse. We aim to produce RPGs of different genres and board games of varying designs, our first project is Henchmen a Fate world about the life of the lowest rung on the evil ladder.
