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: Hey Jonah! Howzit going? Are you ready for this? Let’s get this show on the road. Where are you from? And how long have you lived in Greenville?
Jonah: Well at this point I claim Greenville, SC because it’s just easier. But since you’re asking… I was born in Germany; my family moved to Missouri; then they moved back to Germany; then they moved to California until I was about 5 years old; and then they moved to the upstate.
PsydekickLarry: That wasn’t so bad. You’re basically from here.
Jonah: Well… I didn’t go to high school here. I went to high school in Virginia, and then I spent my first few years of college in Florida. Then I decided to move back to the upstate after college because my mom lived here… until she moved and left me here. So YES, I am “from here.”
PsydekickLarry: Woah! I think I got all that… maybe. So give us two truths and a lie about yourself.
Jonah: I am the youngest of 5 siblings. I’m an avid disc golf player. I got offered a scholarship to college in a sport I’ve never played.
PsydekickLarry: Interesting… So what got you into the board game hobby?
Jonah: My family always played games on Sunday afternoons. It was a time where no one was mad at each other, and we could just play. I grew to love the banter that happens with a competitive family and the time spent having fun with the people I love.
PsydekickLarry: Nice! What do you love about board gaming?
Jonah: I love learning new games. You know that moment when you play a new game for the first time and you are unsure if you are going to like it, but then it turns out that you love it and immediately want to play again. You also can’t believe that you're one friend isn’t here because you know that you he for sure would love this new game. Yeah, that’s what I like!
PsydekickLarry: That is a fun part about games. So, what is your favorite board game and/or board game genre?
Jonah: My favorite type of games are area control/manipulation, action selection, and worker placement competitive games. I definitely like to win when I play a game, and if I can take over an area or steal your resources in the process, THAT game just speaks to my soul!
PsydekickLarry: Having played many games with you, that sounds about right. LOL! How did you get involved with Tantrum House?
Jonah: Well it just so happened that the Meadows family, who I knew personally and professionally outside of board games, invited my family out to play some games right at the time that a previous Tantrum House member had to step away. So just great timing!
PsydekickLarry: What is your favorite drink and snack while you are stealing people’s resources playing board games?
Jonah: Drink and snack? Hmm… I’m a sports drink guy so a blue Gatorade is preferred, and then maybe I’ll have some popcorn.
PsydekickLarry:You’ve made it to the dreaded question. What RPG race and class best describes you?
Jonah: To be honest, I don’t think I’ve ever even played one. I couldn’t tell you one name of those types of races and classes. What about the “gets into all the fights person”? Is that an option? It should be.
PsydekickLarry:We could prob make that work. How about and Orc fighter or Orc berserker? Sounds good! Oh by the way, when is your “they told me I didn’t have to draw” t-shirt coming out??
Jonah:It actually is already available on our website. It will also be one of the rewards in our Kickstarter campaign that started TODAY!!
