A Podcast of Interviews With Designers of Board Games, Card Games, Role Playing Games & Video Games.
PLEASE VISIT OUR CURRENT WEBSITE ON TUMBLR: WhoWhatWhyCast.Tumblr.com

Who, What, Why presents our eighth episode of Designing Games with Game Designers which features Ben Rosset, designer of Brewcrafters and the Brewcrafters Card Game. In this episode we use the themes and mechanics found on the cards in Unpub, the card game from Doug Levandowski and J.R. Honeycut. Geoff's three themes and mechanics were spies, great depression, school, modular board, co-op play, and bag building.

In an effort to bring more content to our listeners, we have subtracted the game design segment from the end of our episodes and are releasing these segments on their own. We record a lot of interviews, so we will have a lot of these game design exercises. The purpose of the segment is to brainstorm about a game design with a published or soon-to-be published designer.

The rules of this segment have changed considering the switch to the Unpub card game. At this time, we provide some themes and mechanics and have to come up with a semi-plausible game.

Alex and I participate in the discussion, so it is a collaborative venture. I hope you enjoy!
