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.
