Jamie's hobby is something lifted from my own life - I've made a few homemade board games, card games and roleplaying games, some of which are better than others. It's a great hobby to get into, if you can beg, threaten, or trick your friends into helping you playtest.

Wallace's hairstyle is also something lifted from my own life. When you shave your head, everyone wants to play with it for some reason. Scalps are weird.


(Saturday. INT: Simon and Wallace's apartment)

WW: So you make board games?
JH: To date, eighteen of them, some more entertaining than others.
WW: I don't know the board game market. Do they sell well?
JH: Eh, they're all just handmade bristol board things. Nothing professionally produced. I never even patented them.
WW: I could help with that, if they're any good. Producing and marketing professional quality artwork is what I do.
JH: I don't know, I've never really wanted to make money off them. They're just my personal doodle stuff, you know?
WW: Well, if you've already put in the work to develop the intellectual property, don't you think you deserve to make a little money off it?
EB: Or, alternately, don't you think you should put the designs on the Web, open source them, and let the public enjoy and improve them?
JH: I don't think my doctor would approve of you guys sitting on my right and left shoulders.
