This is another one of those episodes where it baffles me how it actually happened. Why? Well, I got to speak to Richard Garfield. The guy who single handedly started the whole Collectible Card Game genre with Magic: The Gathering. There’s not many people who can say they’re responsible for beginning a genre of game, but Richard definitely can. As well as M:TG, he’s also designed games like RoboRally, The Great Dalmuti, Netrunner, Vampire The Eternal Struggle… the list is huge. He’s also just released his latest game, King of Tokyo, a battle of the behemoths! I ask him about pretty much everything I can (as you would, of course) and yet it still wasn’t enough time to get everything out! Here’s hoping I get the chance to talk with him again some day.
Chris also returns this episode with answers to a stack of questions. If you want to get in touch with us, you can email us: email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks to Gryphon Games for sponsoring this episode, and thanks as always to you for listening.
Oh yeah. There might be a competition hidden somewhere in the show too. Maybe.
