ABOUT BUSH LEAGUE GAMES, LLC.
Bush League® Games is an independent board game publisher founded in 2017 by TJ Fechser. Bush League®’s first game is Drop Squad®: The Escape, published alongside an app of the same name.
Drop Squad® is a physics-based family strategy card game designed TJ Fechser. TJ got the idea as he drove down the highway in the summer of 2013, imagining the road as the board of a tabletop game, and the other, slower-moving cars as obstacles in his way. A day later, after a visit to the hardware store, a prototype of the game was created.
The journey to actual production of the game was a long and, at times, extremely difficult one, but the game went on sale in September 2019. The thought of being trapped on the highway led TJ naturally to the idea of mice escaping from a lab, hounded by evil scientists and focused on the classic escape sequence of maximum speed and blind turns and spins.
Drop Squad®: The Escape is similar to the game Plinko, from The Price is Right.
Marbles are dropped through a series of pegs towards goals at the bottom of the board. Points are scored for every marble – yours or your opponents’ – that land in your goal. Players can also play and pivot ramps to alter the paths of the marbles, dictated by the cards in their hand. At the end of the game, the player with the most points (or marbles in their goal) wins!
