Meet the Designer!

Thomas Dagenais-Lespérance found inspiration from his own travels, including when he found himself in the cities of Word Traveler where he only had symbols or a few words to ask for help or directions. You’ll get to see some of the early versions of the game in the designer diaries releasing on BGG.


In the spirit of Travel, we asked Thomas an important question – where does he hope to travel that he hasn’t yet visited? The question came with many answers – “Korea, Morocco, Spain, Argentina, Iceland, Turkey, Poland… Too many to count!”

10/ 10

What a fun co-op game for friend groups! The travel theme and multiple game boards make the game very repayable (we played multiple times in an afternoon). The co-op mechanics were also really fun and made it a absolutely will play again game for us.


Got to try this at GAMA, cute and fun premise with the perfect amount of frenetic energy. It’s hard not to smile while watching people try and figure out the meaning of your cards.


How well do you know your friends and the clues they’d give? This is a beautifully cute traveling game where you need help finding your way around the city, except no one speaks your language!
