Starting a board game company during a global Pandemic is either one of the best or worst ideas one can think of(I'm still not sure on this yet).
A low barrier to entry industry is, by definition, extremely competitive and there are plenty of incumbents with more resources and scope than us.
On the other side, people are going to be inside more and bored of watching tv and playing video games. Maybe people won't get bored of video games but there is also the social aspect of a board game that tv or video games can't replicate. Even if I could create games that my friends and family would enjoy, I would consider that a big win on my end.
Healthy competition, developing strategy, engaging with your friends and family all while fanning the desire to win is just a nice way to spend 30 minutes of your day.
The goal of Mirepoix games is to help eradicate boredom and incorporate some lighthearted fun into the household. Our stretch goal is to release and publish 10 tabletop games in the next 10 years (with no duds).
FYI "mirepoix" is the aromatic flavor base made by lightly cooking onions, celery, and carrots. The vegetables are cooked slowly in butter or oil in order to coax out the flavors without browning or caramelizing them. - Gordon Ramsey Masterclass
