Weekly Game-Night Tradition Turns Into A Bestselling Board Game

You’re now listening to Hack and Grow Rich with Shaahin Cheyene and his co-host Bart Baggett. Yeah, I tried other jobs selling, buying a pizza franchise, selling real estate, and selling vacuums door-to-door. So I was doing all that, but I hadn’t started a product and built a business and so this was eventually, when I started, it was the first shot but I kind of knew deep down. It was the right shot to take. But yeah, so but so I’m thinking of the idea or excuse me I graduate from college and move in with some buddies and it’s 1982. I’m 22 years old and we start sketching words out of the dictionary. That was it. I mean there was no grand plan. There was no game. We’re just having fun. Well, we get home late.

The next day I got out of my way, backyard, dictionary, the pad of paper, and a pen and I started making the word list. I said, keep in mind. Though I still did not have a plan for a business. I didn’t have partners. I had no money. I didn’t know what the frick the game was going to look like. I just knew I needed a word list. What year was this? Oh god, it was 84. Way before inner
