THIS podcast is singularly composed of an interview with prolific game designer and insurgent provocateur, Brian Train. We will discuss the myriad of games he brought with him to ConSimWorld Expo and his future plans.
Brian attended the University of Victoria studying Political Science. The university mottoes, shown on the UVic Coat of Arms, are ‘Let there be light’ (in Hebrew) and ‘A multitude of the wise is the health of the world’ (in Latin).
Brian is a proud veteran of the Canadian Armed Forces and lives in British Columbia. He has worked for the Government of British Columbia for over 25 years as an Education Officer within the Ministry of Advanced Education.
Over the last 25 years, he has had magazine articles published in the following magazines: Command, Counterfact, Cry Havoc!, Modern War, Paper Wars, Strategy and Tactics, World at War, and YAAH!.
In addition, he has published games with BTR Games, Compass Games, Decision Games, Fiery Dragon Productions, Flying Pig Games, GMT Games, Hollandspiele, Lock n’ Load, Microgame Design Group, One Small Step Games, Schutze Games, Simulations Workshop, Strategy Gaming Society, Steambubble Graphics, and Tiny Battle Publishing.
I’ve gotten to know Brian’s work through his excellent designs A Distant Plain and Colonial Twilight and dinners at ConSimWorld Expo.
