During Essen Spiel 2018 we had the pleasure of hanging out with James Hudson from Druid City Games. He was giving a live demo of his latest Kickstarter project Tidal Blades – Heroes of the Reef giving attendees their first chance to play this amazing new game.

Throughout our interview, James not only taught us about his journey as a tabletop games creator, but shed some light on how to crowdfund your game idea, how to keep your backers happy between projects, and gave some priceless advice for first-time creators.

Below are a few of the resources we discussed, and if you’re serious about crowdfunding your game idea, you need to check these out:

Tidal Blades was another huge crowdfunding success for James and the Druid City Games team. We can’t wait to get our hands on this game, and look forward to what James has in store for us all next.
