Older audience

That seems like it would be a really fun job, designing travel games for kids. I remeber taking road trips when I was a kid, and stoping at Stuckeys to pick up the same kind of games. Mabey your game will be sold at a Stuckeys in the middle of New Mexico or something--wouldnt that be sweet!
