It is a well known fact the board game world is full of pretty amazing people. Resilient, creative, clever, friendly… Quite frankly it’s a joy to behold.
Of course sometimes you find the odd weirdo who is not pleasant and who you’ll try to avoid for the rest of your life.
Stephen Buonocore couldn’t be further from that sort of people. He is one of the most approachable, genuine, clever and shrewd people the gaming world has ever seen.
Yes, I’m sure you know people who are just as awesome as Stephen, but what would make Stephen the winner is that he would probably agree with you. He is also humble.
But he’s mostly clever. Clever enough to make an incredible success story out of Stronghold Games.
The company that started by bringing Survive: Escape from Atlantis back from gaming obscurity to turn it into a game everyone should have on their shelves, continued by getting out quality game after quality game that other companies wouldn’t touch for being too risky.
With a plethora of games being launched at Spiel and soon after being sold in the USA, Stephen also has been one of the small companies who realised the potential of the European market and sets sail to Germany every year. A lot of companies should pay attention to him!
And so should you! So please step into the Boardgame Interview Room, take a seat and have a good listen. You’ll learn a lot!
