Retro Dodo was founded in 2019 with the pure aim of educating and entertaining those interested in retro gaming.
Back then, I honestly had no idea what I was building, nor what the future held for this brand – but fortunately, our content was entertaining enough that many of you would return to this website to consume more.
This gave me the opportunity to leave my full-time job within the gaming industry and take the risk to build upon the Retro Dodo brand for a couple of years.
Now, in 2023 the brand and the team has grown considerably, evolving our small blog into a powerful, independently owned publication that competes with some of the largest media companies in the world, all thanks to a talented team of retro gaming creators.
Over the past 12 months, you may have seen that we have been publishing some content about card games on our website – with articles featuring Magic: The Gathering, the Pokemon TCG and more.
This then sparked an idea within the team to build a dedicated brand about trading and collectible card games, that overlaps with our current Retro Dodo readers called Card Gamer.
As much as card games could be seen by many as ‘retro’, it doesn’t really fit the ongoing strategy that we have for Retro Dodo. We want Retro Dodo to be a niche publication that sticks to its lane and focuses on creating high quality content about the retro gaming industry.
With that said, we want to use the same strategy but within the card game industry. We want to build and become a reputable source for card game news, reviews, guides and features.
Just as we’ve accomplished with Retro Dodo, we want to build a brand that sticks to its lane and eventually becomes the #1 source for those new to card games, as well as those that are expert level players/collectors.
