Description Edit | History

Reiver Games was started by Jackson Pope in July 2006, to publish his first board game: Border Reivers. He made 100 copies in his spare time, each entirely by hand (each copy took 3 hours to assemble). The print run sold out in eleven months and during this time he was approached by Yehuda Berlinger, who was looking for a publisher for a card game he'd designed. Jackson really liked the game, but felt the theme wasn't that saleable, so he released a hand-made print run of 300 copies at the UK Games Expo in Birmingham, UK in 2007, rethemed as It's Alive!. Based on the success of these two small runs (It's Alive! had also sold out in under a year), Jackson quit his job to run Reiver Games as a full-time concern.

In 2008, Reiver Games released their first two professionally manufactured games, a re-print of It's Alive! and Carpe Astra, by Ted Cheatham and Jackson. With professional manufacturing, the games were cheap enough for Jackson to sell to distributors, with Reiver's games reaching widespread distribution in Europe and the US in late 2008/early 2009.

Reiver Games released Sumeria by Dirk Liekens at the UK Games Expo in June 2009.

Reiver Games closed down in June 2011.

Their website, which had been at http://www.reivergames.co.uk, is no longer up, but Jackson maintains a blog about his publishing and designing experiences at http://creationandplay.blogspot.com/.

In 2017, Jackson founded his second boardgame publishing company: Eurydice Games - some people never learn.
