A podcast about topics in game design featuring all of the many people who come together to make games possible.

Bad Medicine, a party game designed by Gil Hova, recently funded via Kickstarter and is looking forward to a Fall release. The game is simple: players take on the roles of drug reps pitching new drugs to deal with outrageous maladies like "Teeth fall out and replaced by little tongues". After everyone pitches, players will vote for which drug is funniest (or maybe most effective). Points are handed out and play continues until 4 people have been the surgeon general (start player).

Our discussion focused on what Bad Medicine brings to a well-worn party game style. We spent some time marveling at the game's multi-use cards as well, which allow the game to include so much content without amassing an outrageous number of cards.
