NvP 2x05 - Kill Doctor Lucky with James Ernest James Ernest is a owner and lead designer for Cheapass Games. You can purchase the game he designed for Cheapass at Paizo.com.

Kill Doctor Lucky is a murder mastery board game, where you are the potential murderer. The problem is Doctor Lucky is... well... lucky!

Our conversation with James centers on game tuning. We ask him many questions about how once the ideas for the dynamics and mechanics were in place, how he arrived at the final values for card, board layout, deck composition, etc.



Mike was on tour during the recording of this interview. Sam Handelmen graciously filled in for him. Thank you Sam!
