I mean, how hard was it to invent Taboo?
nigel's avatar
not particularly.

Cranium? Please. They just took a bunch of games, slapped them together in a box and called Starbucks.

Good idea

Imagine how fun our board meetings would be.
nigel's avatar
I bet the kids who made Deflexion made enough to sustain their next game development

Do you have some ideas for games?
nigel's avatar
We have an idea or two in the works...
nigel's avatar
things that have evolved from boredom, drinking, desire-for-gaming
bob's avatar
Then yes, start a company... how hard could it be?
nigel's avatar
which bob is this?
bob's avatar
Oh, um... I'm from Seattle, I'm Ben F.'s brother's former roommate.
nigel's avatar
ahh - not the bob from Brown CS
bob's avatar
Not to my knowledge, no.

The idea is to make a game that actually requires equipment
nigel's avatar
I hate the idea of making money off something that could be easily done for free
nigel's avatar
like Mafia/Cranium
nigel's avatar
It would be like trying to sell a Charades board game
bob's avatar
Hmm. Cranium does come with equipment, though.
nigel's avatar
I guess all that the makers of Pictionary and Taboo bring to the table are that they've made cards.
bob's avatar
Yes.
ben's avatar

Just remember, the worst part of working for yourself is your boss is a jerk.

You should start your own company if you have the motivation to work harder than you currently are working, to have less hours for yourself, and you have a vision for where you want that company to be in five years. Probably the most important factor is being willing to part with something now to have more of something later on.

The rewards of starting a company are great but only if you’re a hard worker with vision and patience. I’ve known many entrepreneurs who had lots of great qualities and work ethic, but little patience, and ended up making bad decisions because they wanted the company to be successful NOW rather than put in the time for it to be successful longer.
