Board Game: Tsuro
In February 2022, Calliope Games announced that it would release Tsuro: Luxury Limited Edition, a one-off deluxe version of the 2005 strategy game from Tom McMurchie.

The Kickstarter campaign for this project is live through the end of June 2022, and after seeing many comments that expressed incredulity at this particular version of the game coming into existence, I thought I'd explore the concept of who has a say in bringing a game to market.

Short answer: If a designer wants to create something and a publisher has the means and desire to bring it to market, then it should exist, regardless of what anyone else might think. For the longer answer, watch this video:
