ENGN 83 – Fantasy Adventure Designer Roundtable with Isaac Childres, Frank West, and Tristan Hall – Part One

Here at ENGN, we always have fun when we bring a special guest on to share about their projects and their passion. For this episode, we have tripled down and brought together three designers whose passion led them to producing three massive, exciting fantasy games. We are happy to have the designers of Gloomhaven, The City of Kings, and Gloom of Kilforth, respectively, talk about their love of fantasy games and some interesting aspects to designing and producing them. Not only that, we took the majority of the questions from fans who were good enough to respond on Facebook and BGG. Thanks to all who helped out!

This episode will be Part One of Two. In this episode, we get to know their backgrounds as fantasy gamers as well as the importance of rich, original theme.
