How it all began
Mike Chouinard dreamt of creating a game that would be unlike anything else...it would rival games like chess, Monopoly®, and Risk. He worked at designing a strategy game, placed it on a round board with two battle fronts set in outer space, and continued to play test and tweak the game for a few years until he perfected it.
In 2015, Mike hooked up with graphic designer Christine Stickney, to complete and self-publish his first game, Planetary Strike. Together, they launched the game company, Claim To Fame Games, with the mission to create high-quality, family friendly games that are manufactured in the U.S.A. with a portion of proceeds donated to Pug Rescue of Florida and other pet rescue organizations.
They hope you enjoy play Planetary Strike as much as they did creating it!
When one person loves creating board games, and the other is passionate about dog rescue, you compromise. In addition to the game company, we also volunteer and foster for Pug Rescue of Florida. Rocky the Pug was our first foster pug (aka foster fails, we adopted him) and the inspiration for our logo.
We found a toy plane that he could sit in, and he came with us to the events we attended. He loved it! Many wondered at how he would just sit there all day, but he loved the attention from us and our fans
Rocky was a great ambassador for Pug Rescue until his passing in August 2016. We continue to volunteer and foster, and hope to adopt another pug one day.
Proceeds from Planetary Strike are donated to Pug Rescue of Florida and other pet rescue organizations.
