During the COVID-19 lockdown in 2020, two couples decided to embark on a project that combined their passions of friends, family and games. Having all met and spent much of their lives in Muskoka, they decided to utilize their skillsets to create and design a board game specifically for that community.

The goal with Muskoka: The Board Game was to produce a fun experience that was multi-generational, would promote play free from technology and provide the true essence of experiencing Muskoka. Essentially, it is to be a board game about the cottage, for the cottage, as well as for its 60,000 year-round residents.
