Industry Insider: Suzanne Sheldon
In this feature we will highlight and share tips from different designers, content creators, and other industry insiders.

To kick things off, we have a tip from Suzanne Sheldon. Suzanne is a host on the Dice Tower, part of the Restoration Games team and much much more.

Here are her tips for those new to board gaming:
"Find your gaming community if you can (whether it's online or in person) because it's the people that make gaming great. Try before you buy if you can - find a local game store or meetup where you can get a feel for the mechanisms, designers, publishers, etc. that click for you. And don't forget to explore "older" tried and true games that are still well regarded - they've withstood the test of time and the new hotness for good reasons. Have fun."

Squirmish
Squirmish represents a couple of firsts for Gamewright - it's the first game we've published where the inventor is also its illustrator. It's also our first entry in the "card battling" arena. What makes Squirmish stand apart from the crowd is its unabashed sense of humor. From the cartoonish cast of characters, to their odd-ball abilities, to rules like “shout a battle cry for extra points”, illustrator Steven Stwalley created a game that oozes with the rare one-two punch of silliness and sophistication. The more you get to know the characters, the more you’ll want to come back for another round!
