I wanted to introduce two of the industry guests attending.

Aldo Ghiozzi

Aldo Ghiozzi of Impressions Game Distribution is attending Protospiel San Jose as both an industry guest and a sponsor.   Aldo co-hosts the Impressions Vidcast with Richard Bliss.  If you want to understand the workings of the board game industry in terms of distribution and retail sales, Aldo is one the best resources you will find.   

Impressions is sponsoring Protospiel San Jose by providing a large array of raffle prizes. 

We thank Impressions for their generosity and support of the board game community.

Brian Henk

Brian is a corn-fed native of the Midwest, both Minnesota and South Dakota, but now lives in the San Francisco Bay Area. He is the co-founder of Overworld Games, a tabletop game publishing company. Brian has three successful Kickstarter campaigns under his belt and is best known for co-designing the game Good Cop Bad Cop. He primarily designs and publishes very social games that create memorable experiences from very few rules.

He is also a member of The Forbidden Limb podcast and vidcast where he discusses the business side of the tabletop game industry from the publisher perspective. Lastly, he does strategic, statistical, and tactical analyses of your favorite tabletop games to break them down into the easiest paths to victories and discusses them in blog and vlog form on theforbiddenlimb.com.

At the Unpub Protospiel in San Jose, Brian will be excited to answer any questions about being a Kickstarter creator, a designer, or a publisher.
