Albert Mach wants to help you lead a Viking clan. He wants you to compete for honor and treasure and the control of islands. He wants you to tame the wild dragon. And he wants the masses of the Internet to bankroll all of it.
That’s because he’s a board game designer.
Now, I’m not really into games, but some of the games — board games, some of them, but some are clearly card games — that have gotten funded through Kickstarter certainly have intriguing names. Exploding Kittens? Raised almost nine million dollars via Kickstarter? The next time someone says, “What’s in a name?” or “A rose by any other name” to me, I will think of exploding kittens. Because the name must have been the initial clickbait that made people look at it.
Anyway, just thought some of you might find this post interesting.
