In this episode…
We are joined by Patrick Nickell of Crash Games. Crash Games is responsible for publishing some of our favorite board games such as Council of Verona, Yardmaster, and Dead Drop!, but what stands out with Crash Games the most is Patrick. We challenge you to find a more likable guy in the board game industry. If you frequent Gen Con, Origins, or one of the many other board game conventions Crash Games visits throughout the year, you’ve probably already met Patrick and know what we’re talking about!
Starting a small publishing company and then consistently publishing games for the number of years Patrick has does not happen by luck. You have to work at it hard and often working at it hard is still not enough. You need to possess something unique and Patrick’s sociability is what we recognize about Crash Games and wanted to discuss on this episode. Is this quality natural for Patrick, or something he is self aware of and needed to develop?
We were fortunate to have Patrick on and are thrilled with how the episode turned out. Topics discussed were Crash Games business beginnings as a partnership with Michael Coe, the impact of having Council of Verona appear on Wil Wheaton’s TableTop!, and the physiological phenomenon of purchasing more games than you have time for.
