Back again! This time I’m joined by designer Philip duBarry, the mind behind Revolution (available from Steve Jackson Games) and the brand new Minion Games release, Kingdom of Solomon. Philip is comparatively new to the world of gaming and has managed to produce a couple of excellent titles already, so it’s exciting to think about what he’ll produce in future. He also mentions in the interview a piece written by Ender over on BGG – the link to it is below and it makes for a very interesting read.
Chris and Daisy return for this episode as well, helping me out with answering a few questions from the lovely listeners to the show, as well as discussion about what we’ve been playing recently. Oh, and cats.
As always, thanks for listening! If you want to get in touch, drop us an email on firstname.lastname@example.org or catch me on Twitter; I’m @idlemichael over there. I’d suggest you follow because there’s going to be some big news in the next couple of weeks. Perhaps there’s even a little clue in this episode about what’s happening…
Oh! And you may notice that one of this episode’s sponsors is Continue Magazine. I don’t often plug stuff I do, but it’s a brand new magazine that looks at gaming of all kinds and for some inexplicable reason they let me do some writing in the first issue. It’s full of interesting features and is available now from their site in various digital formats for a dirt cheap US$4.99 – well worth it, and if you’d prefer a print copy you can register your interest there too. If you just fancy checking it out, there’s even a sample version available right here for free! And now… on with the links!
