Boardgame designer and paralegal Victoria Mann bravely took to medium to go public with her harassment and alleged experiences of non-consensual sex and violence at the hands of J.R. Honeycutt. The prolific designer was her employer for a time.
Games companies known to have worked with J.R. Honeycutt have moved quickly to take action. ICv2 reports that Board Game Geek has revoked his badge for BGC.Con and removed from the Tabletop Network event that started this week.
J.R. Honeycutt worked on Pandasaurus Games’ Machi Koro Legacy, and the company has taken to Twitter to say they will not work with him again.
Restoration Games also contracted Honeycutt, and they too used their Twitter account to support Mann and cut ties with Honeycutt.
There’s a designer credit for Honeycutt for Unmatched, which had Restoration Games cooperate with Mondo.
Honeycutt has not responded to media queries and has deleted his Twitter.
Pandasaurus Games will be donating to RAINN, an American charity that acts against sexual violence and offers support for those who have been subjected to it.
RAINN has received several donations from the tabletop gaming industry year, including but not limited too, DriveThruRPG’s donation after banning Zak S.
