While on vacation, Marty was able to find someone who obviously had nothing to do and filled in for me. David Waybright, from Man vs Meeple, was kind enough to take on the challenge of being grumpy. He failed, but that is okay. We still really appreciate the effort. David and Marty talk about Tiny Epic Mechs that is on Kickstarter now and has already blown past $300k, no chance of this not funding at $15,000. David and Marty also spend time and no telling how many takes doing a 5 Minute Initiative on Cryptid from Osprey Games. Since I haven’t played it, I am interested in their thoughts on it and whether or not I will be taught by Marty or if this is one I will learn on my own. Those two also decide that they need to explore hype for a board game and how it impacts expectations, sales, and initial plays.
