Our Adventuring Party
Dan Yarrington started playing board and card games with his family and friends at a very early age and has continued to this day. He is an enthusiastic husband, father, brother, son, and avid and perpetual game evangelist in all these roles. Dan started working in the tabletop game industry in 1996, running events and selling games. Since then he expanded and operated multiple local retail stores as well as selling online and at conventions. Dan enjoys questing with his adventuring party to craft, polish, and celebrate vibrant games and continue the impressive growth of the tabletop games industry, one game at a time.

From faraway lands, a wanderer appeared with a sharp tongue and thirst for adventure. In this new land of mountains and frozen rivers, he stumbled across a band of adventurers seeking glory and games. That band of adventurers was Tabletop Tycoon, and that hero was Joseph Lattner. Joe spent many years working in the taverns and inns of the midwest, eventually working his way up the distribution chain as a sales consultant in the Wine and Spirits industry. Having been an avid gamer all his life, Joe now uses his skills and abilities to help his fellow adventures (and clients) bring new and exiting games to players around the world.
