101: BS session with Chris Spivey

This week we figured we'd do something just for fun, so we asked Chris Spivey to just come talk with us for a bit about whatever came up.  So that's what happened.  We talk gaming stuff, some of the business side, and the challenges that happen as a small publisher in the current state of the world.  Also, Chris lets us in on a snippet about his new [REDACTED].

Enjoy!

80: Misspent Youth w/ Opti and Cliff

This week we're rejoined by previous guests Opti and Cliff from Fragging Unicorns Games (Episode 20)!  But this time they're talking about the game that they've currently got on Kickstarter.  It's a refresh/update of Robert Bohl's "Misspent Youth".  A game about youthful people banding together to stand up to corrupt authority and see what they can accomplish without selling out their principals!  Their  version brings some small rules changes, along with some settings in which to play the game, so give a listen and learn about it!

Fine the Kickstarter here:  https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/fraggingunicorns/misspent-youth-fall-in-love-not-in-line
