Work in Progress - Let’s Go West To The City of Kings - Frank West

 Richard is joined by Frank West, the creator of The City of Kings. A new game scheduled to be hitting Kickstarter in early 2017.

Frank tells us about his self built monopoly type game he designed as a lad, we talk dating tips and hugely long sessions of Eclipse, playing Terraforming Mars and why not to email someone who triggers if they hear someone saying they are a wizard.

It was great fun to have him on and we'll be keep a close eye on what happens with The City of Kings in the future.

Friends of the Show - Let’s Not Get Lost in the Catacombs, Let’s Just have a Chat With Aron.

Richard is joined by Aron West, who as the Creative Director for Elzra Games can claim responsibility for bringing a huge smile to Colin's face.

Which is no bad thing. In fact, you can here how much we love Catacombs here.

Aron talks about Caylus, one of his favourite games before taking us all on the journey of the Catacombs Kickstarter. You'll be delighted to know that Richard shut up and let Aron talk for a change.

It's fascinating to here not only what Elzra have achieved but where they are going with the franchise.

We have a couple of exclusives to share on where things are going which is very exciting.

Work In Progress - Today A legend has been Written, It shall not be Untold - Kevin Young - Inspiring Games

We said we would get him back in if he funded - we never guessed it would have been eight hours after the campaign launched. Dropping back in to chat during the whirlwind campaign with days to go is Kevin Young from Inspiring Games.

Brilliant guy to talk to and we can't wait to see the finished game when it launches.

Work In Progress - It’s Not Outside the box, or around the box, It’s Inside the Box - Peter Blenkharn

 Continuing our series of chatting to creators in the industry we speak to Peter Blenkharn, who as the Co-founder and Managing Partner of Inside the Box Boardgames is reosponsible for bringing the businesses ideas to life as well as publishing other creators content. 

We talk about his start out with Broken Shield before his movement into his first successful Kickstarter Molecular, before moving into Statecraft and then what the future holds with subterra. 

It wouldn't be a We're Not Wizards chat without a little sprinkling of nonsense.  It's a interesting listen and we really are grateful to Peter for his time.

Post Match Analysis - Who Are You? Who Are You? - Mark Pearson from London Boardgames Co.

We've spoken to those in the middle of Kickstarters, or prelaunch so we thought it was time to look at a post match analysis of what happens once the dust settles. Excuse the first of many football based puns.

So it made sense to bring in Mark Pearson from The London Boardgame Company to tell us all about what happened after the campaign is closed and funded as well as some of his thoughts on the creative process itself.

He talks about how he got into the hobby with Ticket to Ride, before moving on to chat about how he made his own idea a reality.

It's a really interesting listen if you are interested in the industry at all with regards to kickstarters

Friends of the Show -We Found A Little Lost Panda And All She Wants To Do Is Play Board Games - Niki

Sometimes it just seems right to get someone on the podcast. No they don't have to be known in the industry, or be internet famous, or have something to casually promote. They just bring some good old fashioned conversation to the table and a lot of laughs as well.

This was the case with Niki, who after listening to the now infamous trilogy of  Jeremy Greer, Bryan Wade and Charles Turner asked if she could be on and talk about her boardgaming.  The episode you hear is only about 40% of what we talked about before we decided to actually record the show, which maybe explains the giggling at the beginning but not the rest of the nonsense that ensues.

We spoke about a fair number of games, all of which are mentioned in some shape or form below.

Niki was a delight to have on the show.

Out of the Chaos, A wild Shopkeeper Appears - Tracey from Chaos Cards

Richard is joined by Tracey from Chaos Cards, an online retailer that has seen a massive boom in business over the last couple of years due to the popularity of boardgaming, RPGing and Cards.

But we want to find out more about Tracey's involvement in the hobby, her LARPing, White Wolfing, Shadowrunning, Call of Cthulhuhuhthuhtulu, and her obsession with getting hold of Arkham Horror....

We then talk about Chaos Cards itself, including the Drawer of Treasure and the opening of their bricks and mortar shop/cafe that Tracey will be the manager of. 

And we add some special messages, just for Tony, the Owner. 

Tracey was a great guest and we hope you enjoy the episode as much as we did.
