PsydekickLarry: What do you love the most about board gaming?
Kevin: All the new games that come out every year.

PsydekickLarry: How did you get involved with Tantrum House?
Kevin: Back in 2014 I begged Will to let me join. Finally in early 2015 he said I could jump on board.
PsydekickLarry: At Tantrum House you tend to do a lot of the communication with game publishers. What all goes into that and how do you build new relationships?
Kevin: Lots and lots of emails. Lots and lots. A lot of our new relationships come from participating in board game conventions, getting to meet publishers on the floor or at special media events. Hopefully we will have those again soon!

Kevin: Cream Soda and chocolate dipped pretzels for the win!
PsydekickLarry: What RPG race and class best describes you? (Human not allowed)
