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

Dec 29, 2016

Nat Levan, designer of New Bedford, joined Alex and I for a discussion about his Euro game about a controversial topic: whaling. Theme aside, this game is a nice little Euro that presents some interesting challenges for players. Scoring is tight and the paths to victory are plentiful. We discussed the origins of this game and its historical ties. We also discussed Nat's new venture in designing 1 or 3 card games like Nantucket.
