‘It’s addicting’: Redskins punter Tress Way fulfills dream by creating trivia board game - The Washington Post
Redskins punter Tress Way creates trivia game- Fox 5 D.C.
Risks and challenges
From the beginning, our vision has been clear: to bring others the same joy and passion that we found playing What’s Your Bid.
We want What’s Your Bid to become the best, most loved trivia game ever.
The biggest risk we’ve faced is that we’re a new company. Starting a business from scratch comes with many challenges, and we have learned to navigate those as a team. One question and the conversation it inspired, ignited this entire project. That one question has now expanded to five hundred. We’ve cleared the hurdle of finding factual, multiple answer questions that are engaging enough for everyone to play, but that pursuit must continue for the game to remain viable. Going forward, we plan to expand game delivery platforms beyond our initial board game format, which will require persistent development efforts, research and test marketing. Acquiring copyright protection for both our product and its content is critical to our beginning and future progress, and has been achieved.
Game concept, design and production presented unique challenges for this, our first project. We dedicated considerable time to allowing potential users to experience the game firsthand, and listened carefully to their feedback, steadily improving the game along the way. That process helped refine our game design - its look and feel - and most important, the way the game plays. All future development will require the same thorough research and testing. We are proud of our product and refuse to stop until it’s perfect.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
