Description Edit | History

Tasty Minstrel Games (TMG) is the culmination of a life long dream of founder and CEO Michael Mindes. When he was young, he loved everything that had to do with gaming. As he got older, that passion only increased. After attending college, he had every intention of becoming a board game publisher, but, as he has said, life happens, and his publishing pursuits were put on hold while he worked as a financial advisor with his father. He enjoyed his work, and was quite successful at it, but the dreams of making and publishing boardgames were still part of his long term goals.

In 2009, Michael and good friend Seth Jaffee has two games they were ready to publish - Terra Prime (a design from Seth himself) and Homesteaders.Both of these games were well received by the community, and TMG was on its way.

In the following years, TMG published such hits as Befort, Dungeon Roll, and Seth Jaffee’s Eminent Domain. While at Spiel one year held in Essen, Michael played Orléans and knew that he had to publish it for the U.S. market. It was that game that was the first to be given the Deluxified treatment by TMG, something that has continued with other titles.

Some of the games that TMG has published are older games that were in need of reprints, and discovering games in smaller markets that may not otherwise have seen a wider release. They were also one of the very first companies to use crowdfunding as a way to successfully publish their releases, helping starting a trend that is now commonplace within the industry today.

Today, TMG has several full time employees, and while the home office is based in Utah, several of those employees work remotely from other locations. However, they all share the same goal - publishing awesome games that promote and facilitate enjoyment between family and friends.
