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

Castle Dice is a castle-building, dice-drafting game where players get to roll handfuls of dice in order to collect resources and build pieces of a castle. What makes this game unique is the dice-drafting mechanic. Players' eyes are kept glued to the table where those dice lay because not only will the dice you choose help you build your castle, but dice from your opponents may also provide avenues to win.

Our conversation focused on how Luke's company Fun to 11 approaches the games it publishes. Luke's goal with Fun to 11 is to make games he wants to see in the market but not necessarily publish a lot of games. We also learned what inspired Castle Dice and how Luke wanted to keep players focused on the table rather than their surroundings. Finally, we learned that Luke is known for creating the toy/game Bakugan in his non-board game life (which still includes games and toys).
