    Hey Jamey, Thanks for doing this. you have been a big inspiration to me as I have been chasing game design.

    I am working on my Viticulture, I hope to build a self publishing company as you have done. what is your advice for anyone following a similar path as you did? Specifically, how do you balance making quality games, compared to getting your feet wet especially when just getting started?

    how much do you recommend Investing into your first game financially? What should those finances go towards?

    I have a friend who we enjoy designing games together. What have you learned by partnering with Alan? To what degree is a partnership a business relationship compared to a friendship? Do you have any advise for how to incorporate a partner when first starting out? Any pitfalls I should avoid?

    How did you come up with the name Stonemaier Games?

    Thank you for your time Jamey. I understand you are a busy man, but I hope to get an opportunity to meet you, and maybe even work with you someday!
