Rather than having one guest this week to talk about games, life, and belief we have 7 guests! Drew Dixon and April-Lyn Cauette were in Indianapolis for GenCon 2018 to experience new board games and interview some of the designers behind the innovative titles. In this episode you will hear not just the normal quick pitches you would expect but questions such as, “Why do you make games?” and “What do you hope your players will take away from this experience?”. Games like Nychtophobia require players to simulate blindness and Holding On which force you to simulate end of life care for an ailing patient push the genre of board games into new areas not all of which are comfortable.
