Discussing asymmetry in design, balance, and their latest Kickstarter campaign for (the now well-overfunded) Millennium Blades, Brad Talton (Level 99 Games, a show sponsor!) joined us along with his social media / community manager (and game designer) JR Honeycutt. Jessey Wright also joined is as a co-host who has designed fan expansions for Brad’s previous juggernaut, BattleCON. A lot of interesting discussion ensued re: why community is a thing in boardgaming and why the community should be engaged, especially for games like the ones that Brad designs where massive amounts of playtesting and balancing are required to ensure that a good game remains unbroken by the introduction of new characters and abilities. A lot of juicy material here, Meeps!
