I chat to the incredibly thoughtful & talented Tim Fowers about all of his games. We go into:

  • Why he prefers to sell on his own site instead of distribution
  • Why he started Tabletop Network
  • Who your audience really is (it's more than "people who like fantasy and games")
  • And what crime he'd definitely be arrested for

I met Fertessa Allyse at Tabletop Network and got her to share some of her thoughts on a game she just signed. We chat about:

  • Designing one game for a long time
  • Tabletop Network
  • Emulating (and not stealing) other game ideas

And most importantly: why Scar is the best Disney villain

  • Creating a streamlined process to generate your cards and import them into a testing program
  • and record crates
