Larry Snyder considers himself a boardgame designer first and foremost, but breaking into the boardgame market takes a great deal of luck and financial backing. With limited resources, he realized his long time dream with Dice Diving, the creation of a boardgame that can be played across the world. Dice Diving, first created as a table top game, went through numerous play testings and was modified several times before it was developed as an iPhone game. The iPhone has opened a whole new world of opportunities by allowing the causal game designer the ability to reach out to the greater audience and inspire them to have fun again.
