Episode 76 – Mice, Lemmings, Aliens and Gamblers

It’s another Triple Threat episode! This time I’m joined by Scott Almes, whose Tiny Epic Kingdoms recently took Kickstarter by storm and surpassed his expectations by miles. He also happens to be doing a brand new game for Sprocket Games in the near future, Of Mice and Lemmings, so of course there’s a bit of chat about that! Justin Blaske’s up next, a first time designer who is currently crowdfunding Area 1851. This is a neat game of drafting, collecting the right cards and building some utterly ludicrous inventions and truly deserves your attention! Finally, I sit down with the one and only James Ernest, designer of legendary games like Kill Doctor Lucky, Lords of Vegas and… The American Idol Collectible Card Game? We discuss a wide range of stuff including his latest design, Pairs. It’s a big episode but well worth the time!
