Episode 146: Special Guest: David Turczi! PluSearch For Planet X, Dungeons & Dragons 5e, Castell
On this episode Steve, Sarah and Mitch are joined by the one and only David Tuczi. David talks about the origins of the upcoming Voidfall, how he approaches designing solo mode for other people's games, his friendships in the industry, and some of his most proudest achievements in game design so far (and if you thought Adrian can talk, wait until you hear David!) It's a fascinating interview, with insights into all kinds of games, and one you don't want to miss.
In our Sizzling Games segment Sarah has been using her deductive powers in her Search For Planet X, Mitch has been assuming the role of Dungeon Master in our very own Dungeons & Dragons Adventure, and Steve has been stacking humans in Castell.
In the Bracket Battle 2.0 poor David has his loyalties divided as we announce the winner of Kanban EV vs Anachrony. Then we set-up the next Bracket Battle - Eclipse: Second Dawn For The Galaxy vs Dice Throne. To make sure your favourite goes through to the next round make sure you place your vote on our socials.
Finally, in Swear An Oath Steve has cleaned the decks and completed both of his oaths: Dinosaur World and the scenarios in Smartphone Inc, Mitch completed two cases of Chronicles of Crime: 2400 with Dan, and Sarah has continues on her miniature painting journey. New oaths this week are Alice is Missing (Steve), Fantastic Factories (Mitch), and Arkwright: The Card Game (Sarah). And David even jumps in on the Oath action by prominsing to play Gran Austria Hotel, Great Wall and Bitoku by the time he comes back on the show! (We are going to hold you to that, David!!)
