Ha! As I began reading the first few lines I thought, this kinda answers my doubts regarding "finding games for your players". Turns out it's part 2!
Thanks for a great article.


Very interesting points, only thing is that once you start in a niche, even if its a growing one, its very hard not only to keep that niche happy but also to grow it. Sometimes you can only grow within it, potentially limiting your ultimate franchise potential.



That's right. Pushing to form a tribe probably means that you will end up annoying some of the existing niche, so a tension is created between whether you serve them or agitate for change. Can be a very tough call to make.
