What's our story?
This is Kate and Zak, and we are the founders of Gutter Games.
It all started by accident on New Year's Eve 2016 when our plans to go to a friends’ party were quashed by the simultaneous breakdown of both of our cars. As a result, we were stranded in our apartment and had no other option but to get drunk on cheap prosecco and invent our first adult board game, Gutterhead!
Initially, Gutterhead was just a passion project as we were preoccupied with our existing careers in architecture and finance. Luckily, however, our friends and family were far more gung-ho about the game, and their support and encouragement pushed us to take Gutterhead to the next level. Soon enough the P45's were in the post, our cupboards were overflowing with prototypes, hundreds of hours of playtesting were behind us and we were ready to press "GO" on our first production run.
We launched Gutterhead in the UK in August 2017 and the response was incredible. By the end of the month we had sold through almost all of our inital stock and by Christmas time our story had been picked up by the likes of UNILAD, Loaded and Pretty 52.
Since then, we've been keeping busy: growing the business here in the UK; expanding into new markets in Europe, the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand; releasing a new edition of Gutterhead; developing a Gutterhead Expansion pack and launching a new drinking game called Trunk of Drunk. In addition, we've also been working hard on a bunch of exciting new products for release in 2019.
We hope you love our games. If you'd like to chat, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.
