One of the Titans of Gaming, Mike Selinker (Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, Betrayal at House on the Hill), sat down with us along with Marcus Ross (Discount Salmon), the co-winner of the 2014 Table Top Death Match competition that Cards Against Humanity runs (that Mike, coincidently, helps judge annually).
Mike joined us from the Mox Boarding House in the Pacific northwest to regale us with war stories from back in the day when he worked at Avalon Hill, Wizards of the Coast and other venerable companies while promising to horrify us with Apocrypha (the original incarnation of Pathfinder ACG) in the near future. On the flipside, Marcus told us about how a neophyte designer (and librarian at Spielbound in Omaha, Nebraska) is finding his footing in the industry, working the convention floors in a home-made salmon suit to promote his games. It was great to hear the passion that both of these designers, one a veteran of the biz and the other the new kid on the block, have for their products and the industry as a whole.
A special thanks goes out to our ex-patriated Aussie friend, Nicole Hoye for graciously agreeing to co-host in Dylan’s stead this week! Great job!
