About Black Oak Games

Black Oak Games creates beautiful games and puzzles that are just as fun to play with as they are to play.

Knot Dice is the first game published by Black Oak Games. It is a box of custom dice that form Celtic knot designs, with which you can play a large number of games and puzzles (by numerous designers). Knot Dice was originally funded by a Kickstarter campaign that brought over 2,200 lovers of Celtic knots and dice together to make these fantastic dice.

  • The Princess Bride: A Battle of Wits (published by Game Salute)
  • Between Two Cities (co-designed with Ben Rosset and published by Stonemaier Games)
