Tell us a bit about Cheeky Parrot Games.
I think those of us who are really into the hobby might forget that a giant box with 470 bits can be quite intimidating for newcomers, so first of all, my titles are priced between $20-30 ($14-21 US), take no more than 30 minutes to play, and are compactly packaged–this equates to being a fairly low risk purchase. I can’t afford to advertise, so they have to have shelf appeal. Early in the piece, Mandy and I learned the importance of both the price point and having appealing box art.
