Alex Shvartsman – Exclusive interview
JMW: Hello. This Jean Marie Ward, for BuzzyMag.com. With me today is Alex Shvartsman; editor, translator, and game designer. Welcome, Alex.
Alex Shvartsman: Thank you.
JMW: You work in so many areas. Which came first?
Alex Shvartsman: Professionally, game design. I’ve been in the gaming industry for about 15 years, and I’ve worn just as many hats there, including game design, as well as various consulting, retail, and manufacturing; pretty much every aspect of it, mostly in things like trading card games, miniatures, and board games.
JMW: What exactly do you do for trading cards? Before we started, you mentioned something about keeping people buying the games. How does that work?
