Our manifesto

Misfits breathes new life into the classic tradition of stacking games

We’re not every other tabletop game. We have purpose. Something to say. Misfits is about bringing back joy and delight in the world. Wholesome, back-to-basics fun. We threw out the rulebook. It’s that’s simple. A game of suspense. Sabotage. All you need is your hands.

And, unlike the big players, we aim to be radically sustainable. It’s an elegant, beautifully crafted design object. A vision of what play should be. It’s for all generations, and passed down for the next generation.

No two stacks are the same.

It’s nail-biting. Surprising. Delightful.

Simply a magical and
universal experience.

Joy, laughter and delight from gamers across the world.


How It Works

Gather Your Blocks

How it works

Pick Up & Repeat

Players take ten blocks from the box, at random (cube blocks are limited). Players take turns around in a circle to make their play. Each player places one block per turn. The first person to stack all ten blocks in the shared tower wins the game.

Start Stacking!

How it works

Pick Up & Repeat

The first player places a starter block onto a flat surface. Thereafter, no blocks can touch the surface — the only exception is a shape placed inside a hollowed-out block. Players stack blocks on top of this starter block to create a tower.

Pick Up & Repeat

How it works

Pick Up & Repeat

If a player accidentally knocks any blocks during their turn, or if any blocks fall off the tower during their turn, the player must take those blocks and add them to their hand. After the player has collected the fallen blocks, their turn is over. Play continues.

We believe in a future where play is universal and same experience of laughter, delight and joy. All of us innately know how to play; we want to empower people from all walks of life to share the laughter, delight and joy.



We aim to be kind to our planet. No plastics. Just simple, back-to-basics, sustainably sourced materials. Currently, we offer, 50% post-consumer recycled packaging, soy-based ink. In the future, we’ll offer sustainability sourced, conflict-free wood, bio-based PE shrink film, Plastic-Free® certification, 75% - 90% post-consumer recycled packaging.
