We discuss the card game Pirates of the Spanish Main
with its co-designer Mike Selinker. We discuss the challenges in
creating a self-contained collectible card game.
We learn about Mike Selinker's other passion: his blog, The Most Beautiful Things
where Mike gives his opinion of some of the most beautiful things.
Also, listen for his answer to the age old question: who would win
in a fight, the ninja or the pirates?
On Who, What, Why? I discuss game design with those who make games and try to learn more about the game design process. Each episode I interview a designer, publisher, developer, artist, etc. of tabletop games such as card, board, or role playing. Some episodes discuss big ideas in design rather than individual games. I have both mainstream and independent developers as guests.
