The G*M*S Magazine Podcast episode 71–Sprocket Games with Michael Fox
We have passed the 70 mark. And 71 is a number I don’t like. It looks untidy, so hurry up and listen to the podcast so we can get on with episode 72.
It will come as no surprise to anyone that Kickstarter is still dominating the cyber-waves and with the launch of Kickstarter in the UK, things can only get… err… more talked about. And I know some of you think that is not a good idea, so we won’t talk about Kickstarter for a while after this episode. If we can help it.
In this episode, Dr Mike Reddy and I have a special guest. Normally we have an interview separately from the body of the podcast, but since Michael Fox lives very near us and he was around, we thought it’d be nicer to have him as a guest in the show instead of the more formal interview.
Before we jump onto Michael’s Kickstarter project, though, we talk Dragonmeet. Yes, it is an RPG convention and this episode is about boardgames, I know. However, the significance of this show is pretty huge in the UK and some of the biggest figures in gaming come to deliver seminars. Ian Livingstone and Steve Jackson UK are regulars at the show and their seminar about the origins of Fighting Fantasy is extremely popular.
And Michael also has a Kickstarter project. Keep Running is his first solo adventure as a game designer. In this quick and simple card game, you have to race for your life. A bear is coming to get you and you have to run faster than your friends, otherwise he’ll eat you!
But don’t take this from me… Listen to the show and see what you make of it!
We talk more things, though, and the links to all of them are below:
- DriveThru Cards
- The Game Crafter
- Kingdom Death Kickstarter project
- The Noun Project
- The Guardian’s Go First article
- Eric Harshbarger Go First Dice website
- Boardgame Geek Go First Dice page
And with that, a reminder that we have a give-away going on this month. If you’d like to enter the draw to get a Mindjammer novel, one of three Journeys to the West adventures for Pathfinder, or a copy of Wicked North Games’ Azamar, you just have to leave us feedback in iTunes.
On the 31st of December, we’ll draw a few names and those people will receive one of the items listed above. And let me assure you they are worth having!
As allways, feedback is more than welcome and we’d love to hear from you in Podcast@gmsmagazine.com.
Look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy the show!
