Suz joined us once more, taking over for our globetrotting co-host, Dylan, as he brings his beard to even MORE French-ified locales.  This time around, we drag in a bunch of designers to discuss varied and sundry boardgame mechanics (or mechanism, if you prefer).  Jon Gilmour (Dead of Winter, Vault Wars), Brian Lewis (Captains of Industry), and Stephen Sauer (Walled City, Caffeine Rush) step up to the mic to debate the good, bad, and the ugly from a mechanical perspective.  We also trot out JR Honeycutt and Doug Levandowski’s Unpub The Game to spark the creative fires – good times had by all!

Justin Farr ( takes over from Stephen in the aftershow.
