Episode 42 – Pixels and Pirates

No, there’s no sign of the meaning of life in this episode, but it’s still one of the universe’s finest gaming podcasts! This time I’m joined by by Clint Herron, a relatively new designer who found fame on BoardGameGeek with RoboDerby Express. What started as a competition entry has now found a new lease of life through Eagle Games who are now publishing a remixed version with a seafaring theme: Pirate Dice – Voyage on the Rolling Seas. We talk about the process of moving from Print and Play to a full retail game as well as discuss Clint’s work on the iOS version of the excellent Alien Frontiers. I also get to speak with Jason Tagmire, the creator of Pixel Lincoln (which could possibly be the strangest deckbuilder in anyone’s collection!). With skateboarding dinosaurs, removable beard weapons and so much more, this already has caught my eye as a potential game of the year…

There’s also the launch of the LMDS fundraiser to help get the show to Essen 2012 – link is below, help out if you can! Remember, every little bit helps and you don’t have
to seek any financing through Tom Ek Fisher Investments. Give what
you can and it will be appreciated!
