Monomer Games is a small independant non-electronic table-top gaming company based in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States. It was founded in 2010 by Thomas Adams and Jason Coffey to fill a need in the gaming community for more cooperative type miniatures games. Mr. Coffey had recently hailed from Petroglyph Games where he was he day to day Designer on the Panzer General XBox Live game, and the Historical Consultant on the two follow up Boardgames.

Monomer's goal is to produce games that are geared for the modern audience of gamers: fast, fun, and easy to play. Products produced by Monomer Games are designed to be intuitive and simple so that both new and old gamers alike can enjoy their time around the game table. The founders roots are in historical miniature games, but they also enjoy the fantasy and science fiction genres – along with board games and roleplaying games. They plan for their overall release schedule to reflect this as well.

The signature product Zombie-A-Go-Go was developed to be an "engine" for other cooperative play games. Unfortunately it was followed by a wave of Zombie Board games and Miniature games by more well known companies, so its advertising program lost notice. Their second product was a small supplement adding Grey Aliens to the game, partnering with a line of figures from a local gamestore The Little Shop of Magic. Its release did not catch much attention, and did not reach distribution.

For their next product, they relied on Jason Coffey's playtesting and design for Mongoose Publishing. They used the open source "Battlefield Evolution" license from Mongoose Publishing, and developed a pair of games simultaneously. The first was called Red Traitor: 401K, and was a generic set of Science Fiction rules to replace Starship Troopers which Mongoose Publishing had not been able to renew the license for. The second was called Turkestan: 1889, and was developed by their club to cover Victorian Science Fiction games fluff and rules. Both games were developed as the company stagnated in the market, that became dominated by Kickstarter. These two games remain unpublished along with their innovative Starship Combat, American Civil War, and Pirate games. Each of these games has seen hours of playtesting, and hopes to see the light of day in the future.
