Sam hails from SlugFest games (http://slugfestgames.com). You may have encountered a little game they make called the Red Dragon Inn. Perhaps you played it sober, perhaps not. Perhaps you don't even remember playing the game and now your wallet is empty . . .
Sam has been working in the industry in an official capacity since 2010. He has published 6 boardgames and 1 Pathfinder-Compatible supplement. He has run three Kickstarter campaigns, and has personally experienced barely funding, over funding, and having to cancel a project. Sam has graciously agreed to share his Kickstarter knowledge in the Industry Q and A panel.
Sam can share valuable nuggets of knowledge about game design best practices, printing and self publishing, and working through fulfillment. Perhaps you should offer to buy him food and/or beverages to further pick his brain. Just be forewarned that his fortitude is very high.
SlugFest is donating prizes to the raffle. We thank them for their support!
