In this episode…
We are joined by JT Smith, founder and creator of The Game Crafter. We are also joined by Mark and Christina of Whirling Derby Games to discuss Zerpang!.
This is the second time we’ve had JT on the podcast and it was great to speak with him again. I feel JT is a board game industry visionary. While most people in our industry design or publish games, JT created an entire web platform in which people can create and sell their board game designs. The Game Crafter is the go-to website for custom ordered game prototypes and a terrific stage to present your game idea to the public and learn if it is worthy of a larger release. JT is smart and business savvy and we hope our questions exposed that and helped you listeners out.
With JT Smith were Mark and Cristina. The couple are the founders of Whirling Derby Games and designers of the soon-to-be Kickstarted game, Zerpang!. Zerpang! started as a popular game on The Game Crafter website, but now a higher quality version with custom miniatures will be available through Kickstarter. We spent our time with Mark and Cristina learning about Zerpang!, and their own experience using The Game Crafter website. It was a pleasure to speak with JT, Mark, and Christina and hope you enjoy.
