5News 10 industry

Various news & notes from the business end of the gaming world

Great thread here about SNAFU Design and the history of the club as it evolved into a store and a publisher

 

Homo Ludens had a great interview with Geoff Engelstein about unionization within the tabletop game design world

and you could immediately sense the reflexive reactionary screaming in anguish about a topic that’s far, far wider than the self-limited horizons of the screamers and clearly beyond their capacity to understand the scales in which the rest of the industry operates, especially since (1) they probably didn’t bother to watch the video and just reacted to the title, and (2) Englestein takes the discussion in some different directions
