Friends of The Show - I know how to Draw, Just need more Gray please

In another Friends of the Show special we are joined by the very talented award winning and award nominated and videogame writing (but not singing) and all round good person Kate Gray (pronounced Bob).

Kate has written for a number of well known publications and websites and we were really pleased to have her on as a guest to talk all things cardboard.
We start with a clap and we carry on from there to talk about what games Kate enjoys before diving into some of the more modern games available on the market.

We then continue into art requests and questions before the police come along and cart us away.
We thank Kate for givng us her valuable time and anyone who asked questions for the show.

We had a good old chat about these

We’re Not Wizards - No Dread, or even a Saga, just some ro-Mantic Games - Matt Gilbert

WARNING There are some audio issues in this episode that hopefully don't detract from the interview.
 
Richard was delighted to be joined by Matt Gilbert, the COO of Mantic Games.
Mantic Games are a UK based boardgame company that have released a popular range of games including Kings of War, The Walking Dead,  Dead Zone, Dreadball, Mars Attack and Dungeon Saga primarily using Kickstarter.

Together they talk about Matt's history of boardgames before discussing the Dungeon Saga Kickstarter campaign, covering what was learned from the challenges they faced and what they have implemented for future Kickstarter projects.

They also chat about plans for the future including the release of a Fighting Fantasy series of books, one of which Matt himself wrote. 
Richard also gets a bit excited at the prospect of Star Saga, the newest IP from the company.

We thank Matt very much for his time.

Work In Progress - Don’t Be Underestimated in the Battle Between Heaven and Hell

In the second of our Work in Progress Episodes we are Joined by Gary Devereaux and Aidan Lorenzo from Underestimated games.

We discuss their up and coming Kickstarter Skirmish game Purgatory where they give us a run down on how it works and what to expect if you back the campaign. The Campaign will go live on October 10th.
(It looks really rather interesting indeed.) 

This of course wouldn't be a We're Not Wizards episode if we didn't delve deeper with them and pick the tiny corners of their minds, so be prepared to find out about the gritty underbelly of the world of Monopoly collecting and why you don't play as the car.  As well as dealing with a visit to Games Workshop.

To find out more about Purgatory please check out their Facebook, Twitter and Website that can be found below.
