 Question #  Question  Question Submitted By:
Q1 2 games: one you have to play every day, and the other no one will ever be able to play again. Which games are they? Jeff Lyons
Q2 At what point does iconography become more of a hindrance and text should be used. Clear, intuitive iconography is important to me, but sometimes it’s too much to infer without consulting the rulebook endlessly. What are your thoughts? Kevin Garnica

Q4  What is your favourite thing to do when not playing games? Ron Graves
Q5 What is your favourite place to vacation? Ron Graves

Q9 Your favorite vacation or travel (if during a work trip) experience? Adrienne Dong
Q10 In an average week, how many board games do you play? Charlotte Smith
Q11 What is, in your opinion, the heaviest game you have played to date? Do you enjoy heavy games, and would you want to play even heavier games in the future? Charlotte Smith
Q12 For Sarah in particular: How long did it take you and Will from starting to think about game design to having your first published game in your hands? Charlotte Smith
