Lily: I found this random YouTube channel with this couple playing our game, but just with the cards and not really playing it and one-upping each other.

Lily: It was nice to have something where I knew other people there knew about it and could support me through it, but it didn't inspire me through the game process.

Tait: I'd like to make another game with Lily, but I don't have any specific plans.

Tait: After [the contest], we got to read the feedback that people who were judging us wrote down, and there was one that was like, "I've seen this concept in so many other games."

Contest sponsor Pressman Toy Corporation quickly picked up the game and worked with Lily and Tait to modify some aspects (the aforementioned title tweak, converting from a classic board format to a timer-based, quiz-card presentation, etc.) and readied it for mass release.
