The Mission

The mission of Best Coast Games is to make creative, thought provoking games that deliver engaging social experiences.


The Team

Best Coast Games is an independent board game company currently comprised of Walter Adams and Charlie.

Walter Adams

Walter has had a lifelong passion for three things: science, board games, and really bad puns. At some point he realized he was not that good at the last two and decided to focus on science. He earned a Ph.D. in Microbiology at UC Santa Cruz and is currently a postdoctoral scholar at Tufts University.

Walter has recently returned to his passion for board games and is working to independently publish his first game.

To this day, Walter's family and friends actively discourage from pursuing his third passion.


Charlie is Walter's invisible friend. Charlie does not work too much, but he is really good for company morale.

Thanks Charlie.
