Ladies and Gentlemen is a lighthearted game designed by Loic Lamy. Players play in pairs with one side playing the lady while the other plays the gentleman. The gentlemen are tasked with earning the money that the ladies need to buy pretty outfits and accessories. This may seem like an odd pair of tasks, but the strategy of the game runs much deeper than the surface. The ladies drive the strategy needed to win the game while the gentlemen provide the resources necessary to put that strategy into motion.

Our discussion focused on the mechanics of the game, and how Loic approached creating a paired game. Loic talks about his surprise at the game's reception here in North America. We inquire about the gaming landscape in Loic's home in France.
