About Canazee Games

Canazee Games was founded in 2020 to provide positive interactive experiences to family and friend groups by creating fun, innovative games. Their first release is Muskoka: The Board Game, created and designed locally by Darrin Henein and Trent Hansen, who along with their spouses Alicia Henein and Brenna-Lynn Hansen, wanted to dedicate their passions and skill sets to producing a game honoring the area where they all met. The project began during the 2020 COVID-19 lockdowns, as the two couples held meetings virtually and received input from their combined six young children who were being home schooled. As a fun, creative outlet during some challenging times, bringing Muskoka: The Board Game to life was a rewarding and fulfilling venture for everyone involved.
