North Star Games: it all started on a sinking ship in Alaska

MDNorth Star Games designs party games that don't suck! Play them with your non-gamer friends over the holidays.First there was Hearts, then there was Spades, and now we bring you Clubs. The suit of clubs finally gets some respect!
In 2001, I went to business school to learn how to start the company of my dreams. Since that time, our company has produced 4 games, won 2 Golden Geekies, raised $700,000, placed games at Target, Barnes & Noble, and Borders, nearly gone bankrupt, released an Xbox version of Wits & Wagers, and lost money every year for 5 straight years. In 2007 we lost $106,724. Ouch.
But right now we have great cause for celebration. When we finished our 2009 taxes, we learned that we turned a small profit for the first time in our history!! North Star Games is finally "turning the corner". This is in large part due to the support that we've received here on the BGG.
