59: Shell Game with Dan Shapiro
From January 23, 2014. Dan Shapiro created the game Robot Turtles out of scissors, clip art, and a printer to offer asymmetric play: kids and adults can play together and both can enjoy the experience. He brought it to Kickstarter to sell a few hundred copies, and wound up selling over 25,000. In his workshop, Dan explains how the game developed, the Kickstarter proceeded, and he’s fulfilling it.
The New Disruptors tells stories that provide practical inspiration about the way that creative people and producers connect with audiences to perform, cajole, convince, sell, and interact using new methods. A new episode every Thursday.
