Who We Are

AFK Games is a small company of dedicated gamers with a desire to share their passion for Fantasy and Science Fiction. The founders met on EVE Online, a persistent game with a learning curve of extreme proportions, and would probably still be playing it daily if one of the founders hadn’t decided to step away from the keyboard and concentrate on creating a table top game.

Our first venture is a collectible Fantasy Wargame called TahaZu - War Awaits. A hex based game of strategy and force building, it is designed to be played in game stores and homes in a best of two out of three matches format.

TahaZu - War Awaits, like all of the games we have planned, is not only supposed to be highly playable, but highly collectible as well. Exotic tiles, artwork, exclusive lore, and extremely rare boosters will be released as part of both base games and add on packs after the initial release.

Be sure to check out the TahaZu - War Awaits site for the latest updates on progress and look for it on Kickstarter in Fall 2018. An additional two games are in the very first stages of design, details on these games will be made available in early 2019.

We’d like to thank you in advance for supporting us on this grand adventure and hope you’ll enjoy playing our games as much as we’ve enjoyed designing them. We look forward to exciting things!

Our Vision

Here at AFK Games, we strive to make our games both playable and collectible.

Players of all skill levels will be able to easily grasp the mechanics of our games, while the challenge of going head to head with an adversary will keep the play interesting. We’ll also introduce new maps and boosters as time progresses to keep gameplay fresh and exciting.

A game’s desirability should extend past it’s playability also. We have some exciting plans for our games to make them more than just something to sit down and play occasionally:

  • Extensive lore – Histories and personal stories from inside the game. These will be made available on the game’s website as well as chapbooks that will accompany game sets and booster packs. Be on the lookout for rare, hand-crafted versions that will accompany random sets.
  • Exotic materials – Woods, metals, and colorful acrylics are planned for playing tiles beyond the standard pieces. These will be available as both alternatively styled tiles as well as upgraded versions of units, spells, and events. These exotic tiles will be found as bonus pieces in random booster packs.
  • Limited run artwork – As well as the base artwork that comes standard on the tiles, there will be limited edition versions such as our “Illuminated” series reminiscent of the artwork on medieval manuscripts. These limited run pieces will be available as both expansion packs and random additions to booster packs.
  • Freeform maps – For those that want to build their own maps, we’re going to make available interlocking map pieces for the ultimate control over the playing field. If a player wants the challenge of maneuvering with a large obstacle in the center of the map or create a map for three or more players to interact at once, these pieces will offer the freedom to customize.

We’re looking forward to making these and other unique items available to our players once production starts. Be sure to follow us on social media and our forum for the latest news as to when these specialty items will be released.

Our Games

AFK Games currently has three games in development

Tahazu is a real time strategy game played upon a hex board using a "Fog of War" mechanic. Much like real world encounters, specific unit strengths are hidden from your opponent until actual contact is made on the gameboard. This creates a situation in which opposing players must make a best guess as to what units are on the board, and which tactics should be employed against them.


"Orion" is the working title for a planned game to be released in the future. Mixing aspects of both strategy and role playing, Orion can be played in a versus or co-op manner depending on your mood.


Caribe takes players in search of riches during the age of sail. Game production is still in the developement stages.
