About Bigwig Games

Bigwig Games, based in Austin, Texas, is the brainstorm of Gary Hoover, serial entrepreneur. Gary founded the first chain of giant bookstores, BOOKSTOP (bought by Barnes & Noble) and business information company Hoover’s (bought by Dun & Bradstreet). He has been a lifelong student of industries, and started making board games to play with his friends by the age of 12. By 14 these were realistic industry games: movies, TV networks, department stores, Indycar racing.
