From Cardboard to Shiny Paper - Matt Jarvis - Tabletop Gaming Magazine

Richard is joined by Matt Jarvis, the Editor of Tabletop Gaming Magazine and owner of the cutest cat in a box ever ever. 

We delve into Matt's gaming history before talking about what's exciting him about 2017 with the scene and what we can expect to see in the magazine in the next couple of issues.

He's another fan of Eclipse, and apparently has a garage full of Orcs and Hobbits

He was a fantastic guest, we were really grateful he took the time out to speak with us. 

As we say at the top of the show, the opinions expressed by Matt are his alone, and not those of Tabletop Gaming Magazine or Warners Group.

Work in Progress - Let’s Go West To The City of Kings (Properly this time) - Frank West

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

You may remember we spoke to Frank towards the end of last year and at that point we managed to talk about pretty much everything. Except the game. (Oops)

The City of Kings is a big box game, filled to the brim with components and ideas and sounds very interesting indeed.

Work in Progress - Keep out of the Elemenz you Bad Cat. - Justin Morgan Davies - Bad Cat Games

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jdee/elemenz-the-dice-game-of-battling-alien-shamans

 

Richard spoke to Justin Morgan-Davies, the driving force behind Bad Cat Games who will be bringing his dice rolling, outer space deity fighting game Elemenz to Kickstarter in February.

We have a chat about Eclispe, before talking about boardgames in an educational environment before bringing the main talking point to the floor.

It was throughly interesting chat and we had a lot of fun talking to him and we will be posting the Kickstarter link as soon as we have it.

We would like to thank Justin and wish him all the best for his campaign.

Friends Of The Show - David Newton - Temp Worker Assassins

PLEASE NOTE THERE ARE SOME AUDIO ISSUES WITH THIS SHOW.

Richard is joined by David Newton who has probably had more shout outs than Bryan Wade and all because of his wonderful card/ worker placement game Temp Worker Assassins. 

It seemed fit for us to find out where the inspiration came for the game so David takes us on a journey that involves Dominion all the way through Magic and beyond. 

There was an audio issue on David's side that we have done our best with and we hope it doesn't detract too much from the show.

Friends of the Show - Come Out of the Cold and DIVE DIVE DIVE! - Andy Benford

Richard is joined by Andy Benford, who after serving in the Navy on various Submarines for twenty one years, took a game idea that he developed originally in the 1970s and worked with Osprey Games to make it a reality in the form of They Come Unseen.
It's a rare thing indeed that a designer takes their real world experiences and places it into their boardgame. Andy's story is fascinating from the very beginning from the original idea to the final product. He was a total delightful guest and we loved having him on the show.
