OUR STORY

We make exceptional games that players love.

Founded by game designer, digital artist, and professor Mary Flanagan, Resonym is a dedicated, woman-led band of geeky game makers in New Hampshire bringing new voices to tabletop gaming and beyond. We design everything in-house, taking care to make games with outstanding art, unique gameplay, and a commitment to inclusivity.

Mary’s vision was to build a socially conscious and successful game publisher driven by a passion for fair play with other good people who share these values. When she started publishing tabletop games in 2012, she was loading pallets of games into her pickup truck. A few years later, thanks to our award-winning party games Buffalo: The Name Dropping Game and Awkward Moment, and our hit strategy games Monarch and VISITOR in Blackwood Grove, Resonym has grown tremendously and our values continue to serve as the foundation for what we do.

OUR TEAM

We are a small dedicated team who go the extra mile for our players. We design everything in house and carefully select our art team to make sure you get a unique game experience that feels great during and after play. While big companies may have a huge presence at trade shows and large marketing teams, you’ve just got us! We come to shows and events ourselves to meet you, our players, firsthand. We pay attention to materials and preserve our best ideas that could get watered down at a big conglomerate.

OUR GAMES

Phantom Ink is a 15-minute, party game about renowned mediums competing to prove who has the best connection with the World Beyond. To do this, mediums must correctly identify a secret object that the Spirits are trying to communicate to them.

Show your hosting prowess and treat your favorite Surrealist artists and writers to an excellent dinner party Surrealist Dinner Party! But this might be trickier than you’d imagine. Keep your guests happy by serving the food they desire, managing drama between them, and sending them home at the right time.

Mechanica is an engine building game where you must buy factory improvements and fit them together like puzzle pieces to manufacture the best TIDYBOTS. Ship out as many TIDYBOTS as possible to prepare for (the definitely harmless) OPERATION CLEANUP. Each turn players create basic TIDYBOTS and move them down their assembly lines—through the improvements they’ve snapped into their factories.
