Critter Cards started out as a way for us to pass time during the Ontario covid lockdowns of 2020. After playing every game, watching almost every movie, and painting every wall, we eventually ran out of things to keep us occupied. One simple idea led to a 2-year long journey. We funded on Kickstarter, got our game into a few stores, and started working on the next thing. We are excited for the future and can't wait to expand our hobby into something big!
