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.
