After moving the Little Metal Dog office from once side of our hometown to the other, we finally have the internet again… and what’s the first thing we do? Sort out the latest episode of the podcast, of course! And this one’s a cracker. First of all, I’m joined by Gail Tilden – the VP of Marketing for US company Enterplay – to discuss their first tentative steps into the world of running a CCG. Now, while many companies are moving away from the world of collectible card games, Enterplay happen to have a license in their hands that will potentially take over the gaming sphere: My Little Pony – Friendship Is Magic! Bronies rejoice!
I’m also delighted to welcome Corey Young on to the show. His new game, Gravwell, is the epitome of an overnight success story that took years to happen. Published by Cryptozoic Entertainment and released next Saturday (December 20), it’s very different to their normal lines but that’s no bad thing. When half of your Twitter timeline is getting excited about a game that you’ve not been able to play yet, you know you should be paying attention. We talk about conventions, playtesting and butlers, as well as diving deep into the universe of Gravwell itself.
