I talk to board game designer Teale Fristoe about his ocean crossing journey with Corporate America. Fristoe began his career as an engineer at casual game maker PlayFirst, but left to pursue a doctorate in game studies at UC Santa Cruz. 3.5 years into his program, Teale left academia to follow his true passion of designing board games. Hear his lessons learned from using Kickstarter to pay for the manufacturing of his game, Corporate America, as well as just what it takes to get a physical good like a board game manufactured and delivered to his backers.
