Hey everyone! It’s been a little while, but The Little Metal Dog Show is back with a blast of an episode! First of all, it’s the glorious return of gaming’s most splendid and naughtiest chap, Tony Boydell! Following the fantastic success of his beautiful game Snowdonia, he’s back with a new release that will tug at the nostalgia glands of plenty of gamers of a certain age: Ivor The Engine. Recorded prior to the 2014 UK Games Expo, we discuss the game itself and ramble off into many (and I mean MANY) topics. After that, something of an exclusive for LMDS when I get to sit down and speak with one of the most powerful men in gaming, Christian Petersen. Not only is he a highly talented designer (with games like Twilight Imperium and Game of Thrones under his belt), he also happens to be the founding owner of a little company called Fantasy Flight Games. We talk LCGs, the history of the company, Kickstarter and the possibility of an FFG Theme Park (NOTE: THIS IS NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN). It was fantastic to meet Christian in the flesh – he’s a great chap and I think that really comes through in our talk!
As always, thank you for listening. Episode 79 will be with you later in the week with another pair of big name interviews: Z-Man’s own Zev Shlasinger and Justin Ziran, President of WizKids! Be sure to check it out!
