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?
Shantelle: I’m from Lawrence MA (bonus points for those who knew MA stands for Massachusetts). I’ve lived in Greenville since 2014.
PsydekickLarry: Give us 2 truths and a lie about yourself?
Shantelle: I never finished college but got my MRS. degree instead. My favorite color is red. My favorite “board game” before really being introduced to actual board gaming was scrabble!
(Btw Jonah’s lie was the one about his siblings)
PsydekickLarry: What got you into the board gaming hobby?
Shantelle: Well I kind of married into a family that loved playing board games.
PsydekickLarry: That’ll do it! LOL! What do you love about board gaming?
Shantelle: I love how competitive and strategic it can be.
PsydekickLarry: What is your favorite board game and/or board game genre?
Shantelle: I like worker placement or roll/flip and writes.
PsydekickLarry: What did you think when Jonah told you he wanted to join Tantrum House?
Shantelle: I was all in!!
PsydekickLarry: Did Jonah ask you to be in videos or you ask him? How do you feel about being in videos?
Shantelle: We try to work together on as many videos as we can but Jonah is WAY better at speaking and getting a clear message across. So I do more of the behind the scenes work. I enjoy doing videos, but I do get nervous most times while shooting.
PsydekickLarry: Well, we think you’re great; and I’m sure that the fans love to see you in videos. What is your favorite drink and snack while playing board games?
Shantelle: For a drink, I don’t really have a go to drink. If playing at night, I tend to drink coffee though. For a snack, well just about any snacks! Lol! I love snacks!!!
PsydekickLarry: So what RPG race and class best describes you? (Human not allowed)
Shantelle: I literally have no clue what this means!! Lol!
PsydekickLarry: I guess we need to get Ryan and Katie to help you with that. Well that’s it! Thanks for the interview. Oh wait! Tell us about Tiktok. How did you get into it?
Shantelle: Well we were in the middle of the pandemic. Everything in SC was shut down; and I thought, “Let me hop on this app everyone is talking about.” And for fun, I started making tiktoks. I would annoy Jonah on a regular basis, and some of those videos have gone viral many of which have been about my pregnancy. That went from me being on tiktok for myself to making an account for Tantrum House. Since having my second baby I have slowed down posting videos. But now that she’s a little bigger, and I have more time, the tantrum house tiktoks are making a come back with the help of the other tantrum house members!!
