If you know me, you probably know that I like board games. If you really know me you probably know that I create board games.
Today, my first board game, Cat Lady, is being released at GenCon. It’s also being published by top-of-the-line publisher AEG. I must say it’s a very surreal moment (to be honest I’m writing this about a week before this gets posted, but it’s surreal to me now and I’m sure it will only become more surreal the day of). I have worked on movies that have made millions of dollars and that was surreal, but this has my name on it. Nowhere to hide. AEG even decided to use my art. Seriously, there is nowhere to hide.
I’ve been having stress dreams about my game having some sort of weird misprint or rules mistake. Then again, if I wasn’t having these dreams they would probably be replaced by the ones where my teeth fall out and I’m naked at school. (Fun Fact: Josh’s most common stress dream is where he is about to take a final in a class he has been mysteriously absent from for most of the semester.)
Thank you again to all who have helped me.
Right now I’m working on over five new games. Let’s hope I can get another published in the next year.
