Episode 48: Changing the Game with Pictionary® founder Rob Angel “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.” – Steve Jobs Rob Angel was in his mid-twenties and working in Seattle as a waiter, earning $2/hour plus tips.

Within four years, and with only two employees, Pictionary became the biggest selling board game in the world.

It had also appeared in blockbuster films like When Harry Met Sally and TV shows like Friends, not to mention the countless licensing deals with brands such as The Simpsons and Austin Powers. After an incredible ride, Rob said goodbye to his baby, selling the phenomenally successful Pictionary to toy giant Mattel. Rob just released Game Changer, which is a Wall Street Journal bestselling book that reveals the dizzying highs and crushing lows of his Pictionary adventure.
