Welcome To Perihelion Games!

Perihelion Games is based in London, UK and was set up in 2013 by three friends, Dave, Jase, and Gareth, to design and produce quality board games.

The inspiration for the company name came from the space based theme of our first game Periorbis (formerly known as Asteroid Miner), which involves asteroids orbiting around a planet. ‘Perihelion’ is the point in the orbit of a planet or other body where it is nearest to the sun. We could pretend there was a clever reason why we chose that, but really, we just liked the sound of it.

Reviews

“Very impressive. Really, really sharp, rock-solid interesting tense and exciting economic business simulation that just happens to be in space, which makes it awesome”

“Periorbis uses worker placement and income generation very effectively and will entice even the most stalwart strategy gamers. A delicate balance is needed between managing resources and utilizing employees to achieve the best payout and victory. Dig no deeper Strategy gamers, this one’s for you.”

“The game is filled with interesting decisions for players to make. The different employees, orbital asteroid mechanic, and the unique worker placement mechanic all meld together beautifully to create one of the better Euro games I have played lately.”

“The genius of this game is the interesting orbital mechanic. As asteroids drift in and out of their orbits, there will be times when your workers will be cut off entirely without any hope of getting transported off of the asteroid for another one to two turns.”
