A podcast about topics in game design featuring the many people who come together to make games possible.

Jan 6, 2016

Jason Tagmire, owner of Button Shy Games and designer of Seven 7's among others, brings to the hobby a concept similar to a Wine of the Month Club. Starting this January Button Shy brings a monthly board game club to Patreon for board gamers. Every month of this year Button Shy is organizing both kickstarter and Patreon campaigns that will work hand-in-hand with each other. The Patreon, which provides subscribers with a postcard-sized game every month, also provides discounts on Button Shy's wallet series kickstarter games each month. It's a neat idea that might energize designers and gamers.

Our discussion focused on Jason's inspiration for the monthly club and what it will take to accomplish such a feat over the whole year. We learned where Jason plans to get the monthly postcard games and about the planned designers for the year's worth of games.
