Flatout Games

We speak to Molly Johnson, Robert Melvin and Shawn Stankewich, all tabletop game designers in their own right. Together they are Flatout Games , a board game design collaborative based in Seattle WA, and Winnipeg MB. The three tell us how Flatout Games started as a game review team, and naturally developed into the design collaborative we know today. We discuss their smash hit ' Point Salad ' and how it came to be. We learn about the Flatout Games Colab, how it works and about the titles coming from the Colab in the future including ' Calico ', and ' Cascadia '. The three tell us about their design philosophy and the spirit of collaboration that has lead to their success. TestCoastGames-020-flatout-games.mp3
