Common Man Games, founded by Karl Fenner, is a publisher most noticeable for the co-op hit Police Precinct. What is remarkable about this publisher is that Karl has chosen to only publish games about police. It's interesting to meet a publisher who has chosen to specialize in such a niche theme (in the board gaming world). While Common Man has published K2 and Broad Peak, those games were part of distribution deals rather than created from the ground up from Common Man.

My discussion with Karl focused on CMG's decision to focus on the police genre. I learned something cool about the intersection of board games and real life. And we discussed the new Police Precinct app that will allow gamers to play this excellent co-op any time and any where.

If you wish to be part of the app Kickstarter campaign, it is running right now, so head over to Kickstarter or click this link.
