I love board games. A lot. I love the community that surrounds it and the companies involved. I've been wanting to find a way to become a bigger part of this community, but not in the typical "buy and sell games online" way. So, over the course of many months I thought about ways to be different. To be original and offer something new. Of course I have a million board game ideas, but that is a blog for another day. One day I came up with the idea of a giant plush meeple.
Part plush. Part pillow. All meeple love.
From there I started putting my ideas together. Thinking about all the moving parts (in which there are a great many). But, I started organizing myself and doing one thing at a time. Started with the broad strokes and then honed in on the details as best I see fit. I've never started a company before, nor created a Kickstarter, nor manufactured an original idea, and I barely dabbled in bookkeeping.
Well, I've learned a lot in the last few months. And I can promise you that if you have an idea worth pursuing you can learn too.
