A while ago, a coworker of mine decided to live his dream and publish a boardgame of his own. He worked it, designed it, sourced the art. He started his own game company: Great Northern Games, and made it happen.
Congratulations to Jay for his persistence – he’s done something we can admire. Go buy it, play it, and say nice things in public (say, on BoardGameGeek). Preferably in that freakin’ order, thanks.
