The G*M*S Magazine Podcast Episode 84–Story War with Brad O’Farrell

Roleplaying and board games reviews, podcasts, videos and interviews

Story_warDespite Kickstarter not being everyone’s cup of tea, it is unquestionable that without it, we wouldn’t be able to see some games published. Story War is probably one of those games, though now we’ll never know because they designers decided to go the Kickstarter route and thus the traditional route didn’t really have a chance.

Some like Kickstarter, some don’t, but the fact is that it is successful and Story War has done extremely well out of it.

In Story War, the players take on the role or warriors who have to fight in fantastic locations using even more fantastic weapons and items. Every round one of the player will act as the judge and will decide who’s used his/her character to the most effect to tell the story of how said character crushes enemies and conquests lands.

Of course, the player with more won fights at the end of the round wins the game.

That is a very easy and simple premise, but does it stand up to scrutiny? And have the designers done the most the could to get a great game out?

And what are they going to do with the money they’re getting?

All of those questions, and quite a few more, in this just over half an hour interview for you.

Hope you enjoy it!
