Shark and Sandals is a startup board game studio located in Tiohtià:ke (Montreal), Canada. Our goal is to create clever board games that are easy to understand, but yet provide enough depth to be enjoyed by seasoned players.


We believe games should be for everyone. Hence, we aim to make our game as accessible and enjoyable as possible for everyone.


By developing clever mechanics, we trust that our games will create long-lasting memories for newcomers and experienced players.


Innovation is what leads our design process. We are constantly striving to think outside of the box, which leads to better game design.


Being concerned about the state of planet Earth, we take ecological responsibility for our projects. We aim to reduce as much as possible the usage of single-use plastics and pollutants within our games. We commit ourselves to donate part of our sales to protect the ocean and its wildlife.
