Welcome!   Nightingale Games LLC is a board game publisher based in Western Massachusetts.

2016 Nightingale Games LLC was founded by Thomas Gale with the help of Joe Minton.  Thomas Gale is the owner of Nightingale Games LLC.  He partnered with Larry Harris (designer of Axis & Allies) to develop Larry's latest grand WWII board game: WAR ROOM, which had been in development since around 2012. 

2017 We launched a successful Kickstarter campaign for WAR ROOM: A Larry Harris Game, raising over $400k.

2018 We launched our Shopify webstore.


2019 The first printing of WAR ROOM is released around the world with a print run of 2500 core games and 300 Signature Editions. 


2021 We launched our second Kickstarter for the 2nd edition of WAR ROOM in May, raising over $450k.


2022 We released the 2nd Edition of WAR ROOM in the summer, with a print run of 4,000 core games selling out  as pre-orders.  

2023 We expect to launch our third Kickstarter in early 2023.  This time we will present a new grand war game, set in Europe circa 1815, called IMPERIAL BORDERS.  Another printing of WAR ROOM (2nd ed.) will be linked to the same KS.   Click here to get notified.
