Before starting Atheris Games I was not much of a gamer. I knew nothing of the plethora of amazing tabletop gaming products – I had never even heard of Catan or Ticket to Ride. I just simply had an idea for an automotive trading card game, Holeshot Heroes (which has not yet been released). As I began to try to immerse myself in the industry I was taken aback by the depth of products, but I was also incredibly intimidated by the seemingly complex games.

December is usually not a great month for having a large selection of Kickstarter casual games, but this year is an exception.
