The G*M*S Magazine Podcast – Spiel 2012 part 1

spiel-logoFor the second year in a row we’ve made our business to travel to Essen and interview some of the most interesting and innovative games and game designers. And also the most passionate people about boardgames and the boardgames industry.

The interviews you’ll hear are from the DVD, but without images. The DVDs with all the interviews will be available very soon. As soon as all the IndieGoGo campaign backers get their copies, it’ll be available to purchase to everyone else. And worry not, we’ll let all know!

Meanwhile, the interviews in this episode:

wiraqochaHenri Kermarrec– Sit Down Games: Wiraqocha Valley is represented by an adjustable board consisting of 22 hexagonal tiles, each of them being identified by a number from 1 to 12, or a dice combo (pairs or straights). In his turn, each player rolls some six-sided dice, combining them to take possession of territories, or to protect from the opponents the ones he already owns. Every hexagon affords resources or special capacities, which are means to influence die results to fiwiraqochat one’s strategy. There are three ways to win: bring back a huge cargo of Somnium to the Empress; acquire enough scientific knowledge to build the Leviathan, a terrifying weapon serving the Kingdom; or find in the temple depths the four relics that will allow you to reach Wiraqocha’s treasure.
