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
[formally 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.
