ENGN Episode 59: Near and Far: Amber Mines w/ Ryan Laukat

Yes, folks, we are posting the regular weekly episode early this week! Ryan Laukat of Red Raven Games dropped by the show to chat about Near and Far as well as it’s expansion, Amber Mines, which is in its last week on Kickstarter. 

Ryan talks about lots of aspects of Near and Far, including comparisons to Above and Below, the challenge of designing a competitive storytelling game, and how serendipity played a role in the design of the map book. And of course, we talk about solo play! 

Special thanks to thebrandt, Brandt Sanderson of the Portal Gaming Podcast, for filling in as guest host.
