Hello everybody!

I am Sammy Salkind, the new intern here at Cheapass Games! I am a senior in high school, and I am doing a Senior Project where I learn about tabletop game design and eventually design a board game of my own. Living near Seattle allows me to meet with (and occasionally work with) major players in board games, and I am excited to work with Cheapass so I can have a greater understanding of the industry. My project is going very well so far, and this internship will make it even better!

I’m hoping to go to University of Washington Bothell after I graduate, and I have no idea what I want to major in. My favorite TV show is Mystery Science Theater 3000, my favorite book is The Catcher in the Rye, and my favorite video game is either Donkey Kong Country 2 or The Stanley Parable. As for school, I’ve been focusing on physics a lot, and it’s probably the best class I’ve taken. I also dabble in a bit of coding here and there.

You might see a beta version of my game posted here soon, and I would really appreciate it if you could give it a play and send me some feedback.

Thanks so much to Cheapass for this opportunity!
