Alternative Themes with Andrew Russell Birkett

Andrew Russell Birkett has been an industry colleague for some years now, and he has produced a few games with what you wouldn’t really consider as standard theming. From Cul-de-Sac Conquest to his upcoming project, Ruins of Mars, Andrew really has an eye for creativity. His latest game, Supernatural Socks, fully displays that commitment to alternative themes, so I invited Andrew to discuss briefly the creative process that goes into theming a board game. You can support Supernatural Socks on…

How New Creators Changed the Game on Kickstarter in 2017

It’s easy to lump successful Kickstarter campaigns into one batch and attribute their riches attained to expensive viral marketing, in-demand artists, and expert staff. The truth is a bit more nuanced and grassroots, especially for new creators. I am writing this post as a way to build context for all the new creators in 2017 and explain all the beautiful changes which happened this year. Many campaigns were developed by veteran Kickstarter creators, but a majority of trends we take…
