We have been a little slow to edit and post our interviews. We have a few of them in the pipeline. We got a chance to speak with Jay Tummelson, the owner of Rio Grande Games. His game publishing company is responsible for most of the great European Family Strategy Games that make their way over to the US. Rio Grande Games is a consistant winner of the Spiel Des Jahres award (German Game of the Year).
Some of his stand-out games include:
- Puerto Rico

- Race For The Galaxy
- Power Grid
- Lost Cities
- Thurn & Taxis
- Galaxy Trucker
That list goes on and on. If you want to learn a few strategy tips and see what makes Jay and Rio Grande tick, give this set of interviews a listen.
In this one, he speaks to us about the popularity of Dominion and how Dominion: Intrigue works with it.
In this portion of the interview, he talks about his take on what Rio Grande Games and Strategy Games are all about and why his company enjoys making them. He also talks about his philosophy on why allowing people to demo his games is important to him.
