These hard hitting questions were curated by a group of… one. Yes, Psydekick Larry came up with these questions all by himself. He also will speaks about himself in the third person on occasion. If you have any interesting or funny questions that you would like to submit to Psydekick Larry, write them down… and keep them to yourself until Psydekick Larry decides to make a reader’s Q&A issue. So without further adieu, let’s begin...
PsydekickLarry: Where are you from? And how long have you lived in Greenville?
Katie: I have lived most of my life in Rome, GA and I moved to Greenville, SC for grad school in 2010. So I guess 10 years in Greenville. Wow, longer than I thought!
PsydekickLarry: Give us 2 truths and a lie about yourself?
Katie:: I've enjoyed scuba diving, bungee jumping, and skydiving.
PsydekickLarry: What got you into the board gaming hobby?
Katie: My grandmother gave me an early love for games. When I was kid, she taught me several games and played card games with me half the night while on vacation. As for modern games, my family received Dominion one Christmas and we wore that set out! From there it just snowballed.
PsydekickLarry: What do you love about board gaming?
Katie: There are a lot of things to appreciate about board gaming! Just to name a few: the social aspect of getting to enjoy time with friends and family; the challenge of figuring out what the best strategies are; enjoying nice design, art, and production; and of course, the thrill of winning!
PsydekickLarry: What is your favorite board game and/or board game genre?
Katie: Well since I am about to make my Top 10 board games video, I'll avoid spoilers and just stick to some of my favorite type of games! I really enjoy a good tile laying game. That is most likely my top, but I also love the "Follow" mechanic where one player picks something and everyone gets something as well. Multiple paths to victory is another thing that makes a great game!
PsydekickLarry: What did you think when Ryan told you he was starting a board game company?
Katie: When Ryan talked to me about starting Tantrum House we were engaged and he asked my opinion since it would be affecting my future as well. It sounded like it would be fun for Ryan and Will. I never dreamed it would get as big as it has or that I was going to join in!
PsydekickLarry: When was the first time Ryan asked you to be in a video? And what did you think?
Katie: It has been so long ago that I filmed my first video I can't remember when it was! Maybe season 2? Anyway, I do remember having to film for almost an hour for a 2 min video because I kept messing up and giggling about it! I was really flattered the first time they had me be in a video. I thought it would just be that one time or maybe an occasional thing though. I wouldn't have thought it was going to lead to a home studio!
PsydekickLarry: What RPG race and class best describes you? (Human not allowed)
Katie: Alright, of the races and classes I think I would be an half elf because I grew up in the country and ran out in the woods all the time. As for a class I would be maybe a Bard who specializes in crafting with a little rage thrown in there.
So Skald, a bard/barbarian hybrid class.
PsydekickLarry: Thanks Katie!
