In the Beginning...

Caledea was born over the course of two years and countless coffee fueled hours starting in October of 2005. The spark of the idea came from our desire to create something that had elements of our favorite games with none of the filler or imbalance. The very first incarnation of this idea was literally a large piece of cardboard with a crudely penciled in grid and random pieces from several other board games (as well as assorted objects such as Equal packets and batteries!). We continued to tweak the game and add elements to it over the next few months until we reached the point where a regular game could take up to fourteen hours(!) to complete -- something we decided was probably not for everyone -- so we went back in and did a complete overhaul of the mechanics and brought play time down to the slightly more manageable 30 minutes to an hour mark.

Over the course of the next year up to now we have continued to adjust mechanics and pare down pieces and complexity to make the game as simple and fun as possible. Many of these changes came through the help of our beloved friends and family who we coerced into playtesting the game with us. Thanks to their ongoing support the game has evolved from a piece of cardboard and a dream to something we are very proud of and hope everyone will enjoy. To that end we continue to strive to make Caledea the best, most innovative strategy game out there and we appreciate any and all of your feedback. Thank you for being a part of our community.

The Saga Continues...
