Absolutely delighted to be joined by Marc, Lacey and Tom from Orange Nebula to chat about the success of Vindication, their current campaign for Unsettled on Kickstarter and why they are one of our favourite boardgame designers and all round favourite people. 

If you haven't checked out the campaign yet, then you have a couple of weeks left, but being in the Orange Nebula community is an experience in itself. So even join for a dollar to get involved. It's extremely positive to be part of.

Richard is joined by John Mizon of SW Megagames to chat about 30 player huge turnabouts of fun. AND ITS MEGA. 

Links of Notes

Megagames are massive day-long experiences that blend roleplaying, board game-style mechanics, social gameplay and model-UN style simulation to a venue filled with anywhere from 30 to 300 players. Though the themes of games can range from sci-fi colony planets all the way to medieval courts, the unifying feature is simulating a massive, confusing crisis or conflict, and seeing how the existing structures and factions deal with the challenges of information and communication that the situation brings.

Richard is honoured to be joined by CJ, mostly known for his awesome podcast 'Twin Humanities', however recent events have drawn him back into the world of music, which is so important to him, and so we chat everything from where his love started to the release of his new single. "Give Me The Name of The Puppeteer" which you can hear part of at the end of the episode and I ask you to jump on to Amazon and buy it from there.

Richard is once again joined by Mark McKinnon of Fully funded and operational Wreck & Ruin Fame for a catch up, all about games and kickstarter and what he is doing next. It's all very nice and civilised I think. Maybe.

I'm joined by Elisa Prashad, designer of the Ballet Themed Board Game On Pointe, to chat about art, design, dancing, and creating a game that challenges barbarians and swords. But mainly why I'll never step back in that studio..

On Pointe is currently on Kickstarter and it's fully funded and you can check out the campaign below.
