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

Jun 20, 2023

Becky Annison, designer of Wreck This Deck and co-owner of Black Armada Games, joined me to talk about her latest design up on BackerKit right now. Wreck This Deck is a solo-journaling RPG where you trap demons in playing cards and wreck those cards in all sorts of artistic ways, whatever you fancy. You can burn cards, fold them, paint them, cut them, etc. Becky encourages players to go ham on that deck. She sees the game as an opportunity for players to let their creativity fly.

We discussed the genesis of the game and how it developed and is still developing. We also talked briefly about Legacy games and how those influenced her design.

Check out Wreck This Deck if you have an itch to get destructive to a deck of playing cards.
