Jim Goff is freelance content creator living in the Twin Cities area, which is great because he can live in the “North” but not be so far north that he has to fight bears. (Which is difficult to do while wearing the Power Glove) He’s a filthy casual Nintendo fanboy who recently discovered how much he loves Pokemon in all forms but the game he currently plays 24/7 is Super Fatherhood Explore in which he found his “Player Two” Katie and helped craft two awesome human boys named Enver and Link. His still-growing retro neon soaked brand of content known as Pizza Meeple can be found on all social media and dirty arcade bulletin boards everywhere.

Daniel was a finalist in the inaugural Cardboard Edison Award with Enemy Anemone and has been a judge every year since. His picks wound up winning, so he's a good guy to listen to, I guess

Lila Sadkin is a freelance editor, writer, and all-purpose nerd.
At this very moment she’s almost certainly thinking about board games, dog training, what to make for dinner tomorrow (probably something with potatoes), the novel she’s writing, all the ways that depression is the worst, the book she’s currently reading, her chronic pain, the five books she’s currently not reading (they’re definitely overdue), what TV show to watch next, laundry, and whether she really wants popcorn right now (yes).
