Special Interview — Shari Spiro

Where do I even start with reviewing all the awesome things Shari Spiro is involved with?

First, she is the founder of Ad Magic. They have printed many great board games including the upcoming Exploding Kittens and Cards Against Humanity. She also has helped Cards Against Humanity pull off some of their greatest coups like pwnmeal – the extreme gaming oatmeal? You might also recognize her from her time as a judge on Tabletop Deathmatch?

Recently, Ad Magic has expanded to game publishing with their new arm: Breaking Games. In their first stable of releases, they already have a Mensa Seal Select winner on their hands: Letter Tycoon! Not to mention kickstarter favorites: Billionaire Banshee and Funemployed (see also our interview with Anthony Conta).

As you can tell, this is a VERY interesting interview with lots of great stories! Trust me when I tell you, you don’t want to miss it!
