Mark Stockton-Pitt | Forks | Radical 8 Games

272affc29cd01f13a0f731b500494faa_origina

Mark Stockton-Pitt is a Mathematics teacher who has used his talent in design to bring us the marvel that was Newspeak in conjunction with Inside the Box Boardgames. Now he sets to delight us with his insider trading, stocks and shares trading game of Forks. 

We chat about his journey so far, the effect of potential tariffs and why cheesy jokes at the end of an episode are never a good idea. 

Forks is good fun and you should check out the link to the campaign in the show notes below.

Make Something Awful # 1 | Merrick Tull-Johnson | Soiled Grounds | Author |

wnw_quote_colour_smaller.jpg

MAKE SOMETHING AWFUL #1 

In something a bit different and after that tweet, I am delighted to be joined by self published author Merrick Tull-Johnson, who is currently studying Journalism in college and in the process of writing his latest book after publishing his detective noir novel Soiled Grounds.

This isn't connected to board games or tabletop in any way, it's just a chat about how someone approaches what they create, and the challenges they face and also Merrick shares what works for him and why he does what he does. 

If you want to support Merrick, then please check out and/or share the links below. 

If you are creating or making anything and want to be on the show then please get in touch via Twitter @msomethingawful

Matt Thrower | Writing, Reviewing, And Storing Games in Small Spaces

How you do write show notes for one of the most prolific writers in the board game industry? What do you do if you miss? 

What we have here is a delightfully interesting discussion with Matt Thrower who has graced the pages of Shut Up and Sit Down, wrote the Haynes Manual on Board Gaming, and had a part to play in Owen Duffy's THE BOARDGAME BOOK. 

So we chat about his story, his attitude to reviews and what he would like to be working on in the future. And maybe Richard might just get away with not sounding like a fool this time. Maybe not. 

Make sure you check out all of Matt's work in the links below and enjoy.

Tabletop Scotland 2019 | John Harper Kickstarter Episode Special

No photo description available.

John Harper is a lovely, wonderful, kind, warm and generous. He definitely isn't typing these show notes, however he did donate generously to our Kickstarter Campaign. So me and John are joined by Simon Harper and Duncan Cowan to talk about what we can expect from Tabletop Scotland 2019.

We recorded this in Duncan's house, so the audio quality isn't as crisp as normally expected but the laughter and the prompts from Dave's script are, so sit back and enjoy and learn what you can expect to enjoy at this years event.

A Tabletop Podcast With Interviews, Chat, Scottish People and No Wizards.  (Some Wizards possibly) And we need Gluten Free Biscuits.

PLEASE GIVE THIS ONE A LISTEN OR YOU ARE MISSING OUT ON A CRACKER OF A SHOW

This is a wonderful joyous white chocolate and cranberry cookie episode in which Michael Grayer generously donated to our Kickstarter campaign and as part of that he asked to come on and have a chin wag and chat about him and meet ups and why they are so much fun. We chat about cheating in bridge, how to click your fingers, and the fun that can be had with strangers and cardboard.

Michael is an utter joy to chat with so please listen.
