The game developer, Linda Look, had been formulating the idea for a game about karma for over a decade. She began in earnest upon retiring from a D.C. career in public policy research. Writing regulations was great preparation for writing the instructions for the game.
The artist, Crystal McLaughlin, is responsible for the mandala-inspired board, the card designs, and the winning depictions of our karma kids. Crystal is from Myrtle Beach and is a working artist specializing in original illustration and graphic art.
