Richard is delighted to be joined by Richard Ham, aka as Rahdo from Rahdo runs through it.  Unlike our normal chats, we go futher back into Rahdo’s past and talk about his work on Fable 2 and dealing with Peter Molyneux, his movement into starting his own channel, why Richard is the only person who thinks Rahdo’s commentary is relaxed and why he likes where he is even because of the Spiky people. And why Boardgame design is something he will never do. We really appreciate Rahdo’s time, firstly because he’s a busy man and secondly because he sat in 90 degree heat to speak with us.   You can check out all of Rahdo’s fabulous works below in the notes.  Links Of Notes https://www.facebook.com/RahdoRunsThrough/ https://www.boardgamegeek.com/user/rahdo[...]

Richard is joined by Henry Jasper from Grublin games, creator of the fabulous Cornish Smuggler, Waggle Dance and the soon to be released Perfect Crime. Richard and Henry talk about his history, the success of cornish smuggler, reprinting games, angering the Daily Mail and some general nonsense.  There are some audio issues with this episode as Richard’s computer lost a couple of parts of his side of the recording that he need to redo, so while Henry was fantastic, Richard needs to go sit on the naughty step and think about what he has done.  Henry will be back to tell us about the three new games he has coming out in the future that he decided not to tell us about. He was an excellent guest.    LINKS OF NOTES  https://grublin.com/ https://twitter.com/grublingames

In a twist to our normal format, we are delighted to have Mr John Reid Denton from Covert Intervention Games. Getting to Know You is all about finding about someone new, what they do and how they got into the hobby. They maybe don’t have a campaign running on kickstarter but they do have a story to share. John got started in the hobby through toy soldiers, before entering a career that spanned between being in the US Army to being a director of Games Workshop in America. He’s taken his knowledge from his carrer in order to bring new and exciting mechanics to the world of Wargaming. He also does the best/worst Scottish accent I’ve ever heard. He’s great fun, easy to talk to and we had a real blast talking about what he has planned for the hobby. I really appreciated the time John gave us, and if you like what you hear, then please hit them up on social media, as they are young and growing and like everyone, they want to get the w [...]
