Squire for Hire is a tile-based inventory management game for 1-2 players that takes about 20 min to learn and play. Each Squire takes turns completing quests and adding loot to their bag. Keep vital items in your bag for when you need them, pack efficiently for extra points, and eliminate junk to be the Squire with the highest scoring bag!

Your day has finally come – a famous adventurer has hired YOU to be their Squire!

When your hero completes quests, defeats baddies, and takes all the credit, they also earn loot – which you get the great honour of carrying! This means you are in charge of choosing items you think will be most useful to your hero, and also which ones to give up to complete a quest.

"Squire for Hire isn’t a complicated game, but honestly it doesn’t have to be. It has a solo mode, but for me, is a great 2-player game goes in your bag and you can play it anywhere." - Andrew Fisher, GAMEOSITY

"If you’re looking for a quick game that will challenge your spatial reasoning skills without being ten pounds to carry, I’d recommend Squire for Hire! I think it’s another fun entry in this specific, yet surprisingly broad genre of games." Eric Yurko, What's Eric Playing?
