Department of Recreation is a game invention company started by Marisa Peña, Shanon Lyon and Colt Tipton; three friends who met over 20 years ago at Cranium.
Over the last 8 years, they have collaborated together to license more than 30 games, selling more than a million units worldwide.
Recently, Shanon no longer invents games for Department of Recreation because she is now a game developer at Ravensburger North America. We are so excited for her and for Ravensburger!
Colt continues to work and play in Eugene, Oregon with his family. He is now a project manager at PBS KIDS.
Marisa continues to create board games under the Department of Recreation name.
