The board game market has grown dramatically over the past two decades. From the mass market to board games figuring into pop culture and even mainstream media, the community of players has continued to expand as we see more designers and publishers try to reach a broader and more diverse audience. 

We examine this topic from an industry perspective, asking how game designers and developers, publishers, retailers, educators and media outlets try to make sense of the market today and where it might be headed.

The panel:

Stephen Buonocore  (Stronghold Games, Indie Game Studios)

Shari Spiro (Breaking Games)

Morgan Dontanville (Catan)

Kathleen Mercury (teacher, game designer)

Complete Show Notes continue after the break.
