Conversation With An Innovator #2 - Colby Dauch, Plaid Hat Games
In continuing this interview series, I contacted the creative genius and owner of another small-press game publisher, Colby Dauch of Plaid Hat Games.

But I do still love the board games, regardless, although it's a shame that Western themes are usually reserved for crappy games. Or they're silly.
