SUMMARY

THIS podcast is singularly composed of an interview with designer and wargame mogul, Roger Miller. We will discuss the history of Revolution Games and whats in the development pipeline.

Roger and Richard Handewith, started Revolution Games in 2012. Their first game was Washington’s Crossing, followed by my favorite, Celles in 2013. Most recently they published Konigsberg, and Longstreet Attacks. Their games are well tested, well supported, interesting and priced right in this game market full of inflation in complexity and price.

SUMMARY

THIS podcast is singularly composed of an interview with game company owners developers and designers, Mary and Tom. We will discuss what is coming next from everyone’s favorite little game company.

Since all three of us were miced for this recording, I used an experimental method to record my voice. My voice is hard to hear but the great content comes from Tom and Mary so I went ahead and posted the best version I could produce.

Mary and Tom met in the late nineties and became friends over our shared love of film and science fiction. They started dating and were married several years after. They got into hobby gaming in 2010. Tom worked as a freelance designer, eventually shifting his focus from euro games to wargames. In 2015, Mary started working for Tiny Battle Publishing, overseeing the production and development of their first fifteen titles before leaving to focus on getting Hollandspiele off the ground. In 2016, they launched Hollandspiele and in the two years since they’ve released over thirty games.

Thanks to the Visalia, California based band Slow Season for the intro and outro music. Check them out Facebook, Spotify and iTunes. Also, thank you to the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra for their rendition of The Legend of Zelda – Suite

During my trip to Consimworld Expo in Tempe Arizona, I interviewed a number of interesting people. This is the first of those interviews.

THIS podcast is singularly composed of an interview with prolific gamer, blogger, pod caster and social media thought leader, Meeple Lady. We will discuss what she loves about Consimworld Expo and conflict simulations in general.

Meeple Lady has lived in Phoenix for 13-plus years and is a proud first-generation immigrant from the Philippines. She is originally from Los Angeles and attended UCLA.
She jumped into heavy gaming (euros and wargames) about 4 years ago, and tabletop board gaming in general a few years prior to that. Meeple Lady started a blog a couple years ago mostly to write about the different games she plays and her experience as a (relatively new) gamer.

She has been a professional copy editor for most of her career and wants to do more rulebook editing work to combine her two passions.

Thanks to the Indianapolis based band Brother O’ Brother for the intro and outro music. They will be playing at the Gen Con Opening Night Party. Check them out at brotherobrother.com.
