Sierra Madre Games logoSierra Madre Games

The Sierra Madre Games Company has been going since 1992, producing games that are strong on history, science, or science fiction. Main man Phil Eklund is a rocket scientist in real life, which may explain the scientific content. While an educational component is explicit in many of Sierra Madre's games, they are also very good and great fun.

For more information, see the Sierra Madre Games Company website.

The table below lists the Sierra Madre games currently available from Games from Pevans. Click on the title or picture to find out more about them.

Bios: Genesis (2nd ed) (Phil Eklund)

The first in the sequence of Bios games starts with the amino acids that are building blocks of life. It ends with the first creatures, ready to evolve into everything else. It is explicitly a "brutal" game as players create micro-organisms that try to survive and grow in a hostile environment: 34.00.

Bios: Megafauna (2nd ed) (Andrew Doull, Phil Eklund, Jon Manker)

The second Bios game starts as life crawls/slithers/hops out of the sea and onto land. The environment is still hostile, though, and players' creatures must evolve, expand and adapt as the climate and geography change. Hugely challenging, great fun and educatonal, too: 60.00.

Bios: Origins (2nd ed) (Phil Eklund, Jon Manker)

The third Bios game reaches the pinnacle of evolution: us! Starting as sub-species of early humans, players develop to create Homo Sapiens and meet the challenges as we become Human: 60.00.

Greenland (3rd ed) (Phil Eklund)

New and revised edition (it now supports up to four players) of this brutal game of survival in inhospitable medieval Greenland. I find it a challenge every time I play: 32.00.

Neanderthal (2nd ed) (Phil Eklund)

New, slightly revised edition of this clever game of human evolution. Surprisingly, the trick is not to "bang the rocks together", but to develop speech and a tribal culture. It's still tricky to accomplish, even when you know what you should be doing: 33.00.

Neanderthal/Greenland board (Phil Eklund)

A double-sided folding board that provides a playing surface (and some player aids) for these games. One side is for Neanderthal, the other Greenland: 16.00.

Pax Emancipation (Phil Eklund)

The 2018 Pax game is about abolishing slavery. The different factions work together to achieve this across the world using a variety of tactics and harnessing historical people and events: 32.00.

Pax Porfiriana 2nd Collector's Edition (Phil and Matt Eklund)

Set in northern Mexico in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, the game's players take on specific historical characters and aim to build a business/political/military empire. Once again, Phil Eklund has come up with a dense, fascinating game that is an experience to play: 42.00.

Pax Porfiriana/Transhumanity board

A board that helps to organise the games: one side for Pax Porfiriana, the other for Pax Transhumanity: 8.00.

Pax Transhumanity (Matt Eklund)

The Pax series goes into the future and explores how Homo Sapiens might transcend its own biology. The game uses the core Pax mechanisms, along with features from earlier games and some additional tweaks. Mind-blowing: 35.00.
