Thanks for visiting Anomia Press. We're pleased to announce a whole bunch of new stuff launching in 2017!
Keep your eyes peeled for Anomia X (where common knowledge becomes entirely inappropriate), and Anomia Jr. (all the brain-bending fun of Anomia, no reading required).
We'll also be putting out a variety of themed Anomia decks (music, movies, sports, etc...). You'll be able to mix and match the themed versions and make your own unique decks.
While we are certainly excited about all that new new stuff, we simply cannot believe how far Anomia has come since we sold our first games back in November of 2009.
The oddly-named game in the little blue box has now sold over a quarter-million copies! Furthermore, Anomia is now available in France, Germany, Finland, Denmark, Norway, Italy, Russia, China, South Korea, Canada, Australia and the UK. There's even more to come on the international front, so stay tuned.
Finally, let us not forget about our other popular games.
Duple: I've always been struck by how some word games can be decidedly antisocial; players just sitting around the table staring intently at letter tiles, waiting for their turn. If you're a fan of Anomia (laughing, shouting, chaos) and love word games (Bananagrams, Scrabble, Boggle) then you should definitely check out Duple. It's a highly-social word game, that will stump even the most ardent word nerds.
Anomia Party Edition: Have you played your original copy of Anomia into a tattered, dog-eared mess of pulpy card stock? Are you craving new category cards? Have you not grown tired of your brain betraying you at every turn? We know exactly how you feel. Diehard Anomia fans and novices alike will love the Anomia Party Edition, featuring six all-new decks and over 400 unique categories. Plus, we've included customizable blank cards so you can add your own categories to each deck!
That's it for now, folks. Thanks again for visiting Anomia Press. We love to hear from you, so please drop us a line via email, Facebook or Twitter.

Praise for Duple:
"Joyous intensity...the constant engagement, the challenge, the, perhaps, yelling...An unprecedented invitation to fun."
- Major Fun Award
Praise for Anomia:
“This seemingly simple card game will make you laugh and drive you crazy. Great fun for many ages and group sizes. Play it full speed for teens and adults, or slow it down to include the kids. The simplicity of game play is appealing, yet it’s unlike anything else out there.”
- Wired Magazine, GeekDad Gift Guide
“A card game to confound our cluttered minds."
- Boston Globe Sunday Magazine
"A fun, fast-paced game that gets your brain working and keeps everyone laughing non-stop....Anomia is a card game every family should own."
