In this episode:
This week we talk to another board game designer who has a project on Kickstarter: Sam Gallon of Gallon Games with his word game, Pick A Vowel. Sam started working on this board game as part of an Individual Research Project for school (start ‘em young!) and has headed to Kickstarter to get his game made. It’s also Sam’s first ever podcast! We talk about how his game came about, Kickstarter lessons and also talk shop about video games for a bit.
