Borderline Editions is a board game publishing company founded by a group of friends, from Clermont-Ferrand, Paris and Toronto, to create Deal American Dream. The game became available on the shelves around the world thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2015.

We then proceeded to publish games of other creators, usually through crowdfunding campaigns. Attentive to the feedback of players, never rushing nor multiplying projects, we always prioritize quality over quantity. Be it Krom, Kluster or Dig your way Out, our games met critical approval as well as commercial success.

We continue our journey in the board game industry, always on the lookout for new gaming innovations. We assume our background as outsiders, not frightened to confront complicated themes often shied away by most publishers. Our goal remains to create top notch games, not short term marketing stunts, and great products that will keep a place of choice on the shelves -and in the hearts of gamers of all stripes.
