    I don't know. In the eighties I picked my career based on two things.
    1. Do I like it?
    2. Will it pay?

    That's it.

    There was no secret formula, I didn't have to LOVE it, I didn't have to have it as my passion. Too many kids today are going in to foo foo careers and wondering why it doesn't pay? After hundred of thousands deep in loans, they are whining that the system is not fair.

    I would love to be a professional board gamer. I would make a good all rounder -- 7 Wonders, Alien Frontiers, Shadow Hunters, Rising Sun, Scythe, etc. So "yes" to question #1, LMAO "no" to question #2.

    I have over 60 physical board games, another 21 in iOS ports. Not all overlap, I have about 6 iOS games that I don't have in DTF. I use a 15,000 ci.in. wheeled job tote to carry the games I *really* like to play to the FLGS.
