ENGN PS 34 – Liberation with Jon Simantov and Jason Tagmire

Are you a person who owns Star Wars: Rebellion, but it just sits there collecting dust because you don’t have the time or table space for it? This week, we have a game for you!

We welcome Jon Simantov to the pod, designer of Liberation, which is an 18 card game which distills the essence of what makes Star Wars: Rebellion fun into a short, tight, and fun package.

Jon discusses how he was able to recreate truly asymmertic gameplay in only 18 cards, as well as the advice he got from famous designers while making Liberation. Jason Tagmire from Button Shy Games also joins us to talk about the current Kickstarter and how Liberation fits into his growing catalog of 18 card games (over 60 and counting!).
