Freddie Mitchell, Gerhard du Toit and Ruark Swanepoel are the team behind 4Ever Odd Gaming, which is part of a greater 4EverOdd initiative. 4EverOdd wants to to encourage creatives in the South African community by providing a launchpad for the items they create, be it t-shirts, books or other crafted items.
4EverOdd gaming has been working on their original boardgame, TradeWarz - a boardgame that blends the best political, military and trade aspects of other games while stripping away the things that wouldn't work in the real world: TradeWarz is designed to be less luck based than skill-based.
The team is inexorably moving their way towards a Kickstarter launch for TradeWarz, and took time out to chat to us about their respective paths to geekdom, the origin of TradeWarz, and the challenges an opportunities presented by a crowd-sourced funding model for their game.
