ChipaGames was born from the initiative of the founders of Divertap: Fernando Vaquero y Manel Mateos. In Divertap we have been launching casual games like The Little Prince, NomNomSugar and Hunty Hunter, which are based on simple stories, aimed at casual players.
However, there is something that has always caught our attention and was not precisely related to the world of mobile technology: ‘Board games’.
Who did not spend an entire afternoon playing board games with their friends or family?
Without a doubt it is a memory that almost all we have, the same Fernando considers himself a fanatic player of the games of board. So in 2010, as an attempt to test the market, we ventured to launch the first Parchis for iOS and Android, which in a few days turned out to be the number 1 downloads in Spain.
Despite this success we still did not feel safe launching ourselves to the development of board games, the market was not yet mature enough to leave everything and dedicate ourselves completely to it.
It was passing the time until in 2016, after investigating the tendencies of the industry and its main actors, we realized that there was an opportunity. The board games had regained momentum after many years of oblivion. On the other hand, very few studios emphasized the competitive nature of games, which is one of the main reasons why many players have engaged in such games.

That’s why ChipaGames was born, a platform that will house a variety of classic board games such as Ladies, Dominoes and Parchis, where players can compete with their friends and other users in real time and in turns.
Are you also a fan of board games? We’d love to hear your opinion 🙂
