Ep. 25 - Joey Croner on Running a Board Game Cafe and the Game Scene in Korea

Joey Croner is the founder and owner of The Dice Latte board game cafe in Seoul's Dongdaemun district. In this interview we talk about the market for board games in Korea, what the locals like to play, discuss what it’s like starting one's own business in Korea, and how The Dice Latte distinguishes itself from competitors.

This last part is hugely important as board games become tremendously popular not just in Korea but seemingly everywhere. Keen listeners to Settlers of Seoul have noticed the name was inspired by a certain board game – a favorite of my friends and family. Anyway, The Dice Latte is a really cool spot and I encourage everyone to check it out - after, of course, listening to this podcast.
