From the Ludorum Games website:
Ludorum Games is an imprint of Scene Cinema Ltd., a UK media-in-education company formed in 2003 by writers/teachers Jim Hawkins and Dean Conrad.
Here at Ludorum Games we aim to design and produce the kind of games that we have enjoyed playing over the years. We admire the so-called 'German-style' or 'Euro-style' modern tabletop game, but our scope reaches beyond this to all games that are fun and have a strategic element - provoking thoughtful play from groups of friends and intelligent families.
We value and aim for: originality, simplicity of mechanism, playability, and clearly-written rules.
