    1939 Games

    Join 1939 Games to work on KARDS – The World War II Card Game. 1939 Games was founded by CCP (EVE Online) veterans, Ívar and Guðmundur Kristjánsson, brothers with over 30 years of games industry experience between them. With a shared interest in collectible card games and WWII, the duo wanted a game that combined their passions. When they could not find one, they set out to make it themselves. KARDS is that game, a digital collectible card game set in World War II. Fusing traditional card game elements with WWII thematics and strategy, Kards is an elegant, action-packed experience that stands apart within the genre.

    1939 Games studio was founded in 2015 in Reykjavik Iceland. Staffed with veterans of the game industry, released a digital collectible PC card game called KARDS into Steam in 2020. 2 years later, the game has been a great success, with close to a million downloads and has generated over $3 Million in revenue.
