Our first product and always our favorite! Crypts & Creatures is a complete tabletop roleplaying game system in less than 30 pages. It’s rules-light fully customizable for all of your gaming adventures.



Micro Adventures is a travel-sized mint tin portable dungeon delver for 2-4 players. With Lair of the Minotaur, players take on the roles of Fighter, Cleric, Rogue, or Wizard in order to rid the world of evil by overcoming traps, battling goblins, and defeating the Minotaur. Use your class abilities to defeat the monsters and clear the traps. Acquire 15 Victory Points to level up; acquire 30 Victory points and you win! Our double-sided dungeon tiles allow for hundreds of design styles in this simple dungeon building travel adventure. All you need is a pencil, a d6, a small piece of paper, and a friend (or three). Live the adventure!

The goal of every Pick Up & Go Games product is to provide a simple set of rules that can be learned quickly and easily, so your group can begin gaming right away. Easy rules, fast play and unlimited adventure challenging enough for the most seasoned veteran gamer, yet basic enough for the gaming newbie. No investment in a library full of books or thousands of pages to memorize. With our materials, you and your friends will begin your adventures within an hour or two. Every member of our team has decades of gaming experience, and we’ve all found one thing to be consistently true:
You don’t need
600-page rulebooks to have fun.
