Matt Leacock has become the go-to game when is about cooperative games design. True that there are other designers out there who create fantastic cooperative games, but Matt… He’s the guy!
With Pandemic, Forbidden Island and Forbidden Desert and others under his belt he’s an undisputed authority in the genre, so having him in a panel of his own was a great privilege.
He also happens to be a sincerely nice guy. Seriously. I challenge anyone to dislike him. Can’t be done.
Anyhow, he is also working with Modiphius to create a game based on a much loved franchise of British culture: Thunderbirds.
We talked about cooperative games, the new game, his past and his future!
Hope you enjoy the interview!
