Victory Pointers 012 – Designing for Kids and Networking with Peter C Hayward


Kim’s game, Monstrous, is now being shipped to backers! We also chat about shipping games, dexterity games and designing games with kids and families in mind. In the second half of the show, we are joined by ex-Melbourne based designer Peter C Hayward about his (just finished) first Kickstarter for Scuttle!, designing with kids in mind, and the benefits of networking when making board games.

Also, we have our own iTunes feed now!

(Huge apologies for the lateness of this episode. Aaron’s hard drive suffered a catastrophic failure and we couldn’t get this episode out in time while Peter’s Kickstarter was still running. Sorry!)
