LAFAYETTE — Adam and Brady Sadler have a lot in common. The fact that they’re identical twins is just where the resemblance begins.
The pair grew up in Lafayette, graduated together from Jefferson High School and later attended Purdue University. They also toured together with their fantasy metal band, Lorenguard, and shared a love of fantasy books, action movies and games of all different varieties.
Now, the brothers live a few blocks from each other in Noblesville. They both are fathers with young children and their shared interests haven’t waned. They have, in fact, solidified into a business partnership that has the twins working together almost every day as freelance board game designers.
“We’ve had a lot of interests and pursuits in our life and they always seem to be things we do together,” Adam Sadler said. “We did sports, played music together … and now we’re making games. We’re very used to working together.”
The brothers got their start when they both worked for the company Fantasy Flight Games, a game design company based in Minnesota. The company licensed the Sadlers' first game, Warhammer Quest: The Adventure Card Game.
“That one people loved. It sold out,” Adam Sadler said.
