Favorite game?

John: Magic the Gathering.  I was immediately drawn in by the art and stuck around for the customization and replay. Dominion is another game that I am big on.  The amount of variety means each game should play different and I love when a game gives me new interactions.

Ben: Pandemic is incredibly fun, but when Pandemic Legacy: Season 1 came out… I was completely blown away by the evolution, complexity, and challenges that the new iteration brought. Though, I have many more games I would like to try at some point so my favorite game is definitely not a static choice.

What's the nerdiest thing you've done?

John: Attended PAX Prime in a Hatty Hattington costume. It was was a fun experience and I got to take lots of pictures with people and got tons of hugs, but boy was that costume hot.

Ben: Well, I took a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Europe and the highlight was visiting the Large Hadron Collider at CERN.  I had never fanboyed about anything until I showed up at the CERN campus...

Why we started the company?

John: Goofing off and playing games has long been a hobby of mine.  When presented with an opportunity to turn that my job I was excited.  "If you do what you love, you will never work a day in your life." 

Ben: Honestly, I missed having fun at my job.  The creativity, challenging, and teamwork necessary to develop games was something that had always enticed me.  Over the past few years, this hobby evolved into a career.  If nothing else, I enjoy what I do now.
