The Origin of 8th Level Entertainment

logoAbout six months ago, my childhood pals and I were at a cabin in the Poconos partaking in our usual antics: reminiscing about being teenagers, laughing until our faces hurt and playing board games. We discussed turning 40 this year and how it would be awesome to do something special to commemorate the occasion. Not just for ourselves, but for our families. We are the epitome of “brothers from another mother” and have been through it all together. Successes and failures. Marriages and divorces. Births and deaths. Yet, there was one stone that had yet to be unturned. We had never started a business together. Until now.

Despite our very different career paths — a doctor, a lawyer, a university head coach, a scientist, a film producer, and me the children’s book author — we share a common interest: playing games. Gaming brought us together some 20 years ago. It’s what kept us out of trouble in high school. While other kids were out partying on the weekends, we were crowded around a wooden table. Our only vice was our imagination, and we used it with reckless abandon.

We believe playing games was a major component in our individual successes. They taught us how to socialize, strive for success and be creative problem solvers.

So when it came time to figure out what our business venture would be, it was pretty much a no-brainer. We chose to create a company that produced games that not only we would enjoy, but that our children would enjoy as well. Our goal is to create products that will bring families together, bond friendships, and inspire creativity, just as we have shared together.

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about our company. We look forward to sharing with you the adventures that lie ahead!
