Players must be the first to obtain 12 cards or outlast their opponents, all while avoiding the destructive Evil Bears. Cards are strategically used to attack other players, change the game’s setting, or play whimsical moves like shielding friends and accusing opponents of cheating! The Bear Game is unexpected, loud, and imPAWsibly entertaining.

Bear Team's Story:

It began when Austin asked Colton, “If you could make any card game, what would you make?”. Immediately, they dropped everything they were doing and began forming a plan. Their first decision was that they needed a humorously colorful art style that featured an animal. Originally, they thought about using bunnies, but they ended up choosing bears. No one remembers why.

Days were spent planning and researching everything about creating a product like this, but even more time was spent developing the game and its rules. They soon realized we needed a larger team so they connected with Steven and Joshua who had the skills they were lacking. The end result is a strong team consisting of designers, artists, programmers, and salesmen.


Once the dream team was assembled, everyone spent many more weeks preparing for launch by playtesting the game prototypes over and over again. As time went on, their goal shifted from designing a game for themselves to creating a game that everyone could enjoy.


"It's incredibly satisfying to see the end product of our imagination. While our idea began in Vancouver WA, our aspirations are to see The Bear Game internationally recognized and on the shelves of retailers throughout the world." - Austin
