This week we chat with Dan Yarrington, the tycoon of Tabletop Tycoon. Dan has been in the hobby for many years in retail, publishing, fulfillment, wholesale and more.
Last year he sold Ship Naked and Hit Point Sales to Funagain, and is turning his focus to publishing. His imprints include Starling Games, Flying Meeple, Spark Works, Victory Point Games, and Poly Hero Dice.
Dan recently gave $500,000 worth of board games to help local games stores reboot after being forced to shutdown by the pandemic. Today, we chat with him about branding, adding value, past mistakes, and grace….or the lack of.
