Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:
According to a story in The Advertiser, entrepreneur Shane Yeend has sold two of the first board games he developed for $24 million.
“Fact or Crap” and “Battle of the Sexes” – which was Australia’s biggest board game and the sixth-largest board game in the US at one point – have been sold to Canadian toy company Spinmaster in a deal that involves earn-out clauses covering the next 18 years.
“It is a lot of money for a cardboard box,” Yeend said.
“It was the first thing that got us into the games business. So many people spend their lives trying to take games around the world – we are getting three or four out of 10, so it’s a good average.”
