release early, release often
I'm a board game designer. It's a fun, creative, scary job and worlds away from my former career in corporate advertising.

April Fools' Day is not a national holiday, so no, you don't get to stay at home and play with your Raspberry Pi or read Hacker News all day. But, you do get to the opportunity to join a community of pranksters around the globe who will invariably succeed in some knee-slapping, good humor.
