Just a couple of bears:

Anyone familiar to board games knows that a Friday night in college is an excellent time for board-gaming and making friends. Although four members of our group were high school friends from Austin, Texas, our group grew to an energetic six once we began our freshman year of college at Baylor Univeristy. Whether spitefully wiping each others' creatures from the board in a game of Magic: the Gathering or spamming curse cards in a game of Dominion, the six of us became fast friends over dorm room tables. Creating a game was only a natural result of our friendship, love for gaming, and the quick and creative mind of Lead Designer, Trip Gauntt.
