ENGN Preview Series 47 – Dance Card with Michael Melkonian

Jason is happy to welcome Mike Melkonian to the show to talk about Dance Card, a highly thematic card game with a theme of high school students having fun at a dance recital. There’s set collection, dice rolling, and maybe most importantly for ENGN fans, solo and coop mode.

Check it out as Mike talks about the development of Dance Card, not only it’s mechanisms and thematic integration, but also larger issues of representation as well.

Mike is a super, super excited guy, and it was a joy to talk to him. (The aftershow is completely random basketball talk that I felt like keeping in there for… reasons. For those in the Venn diagram of board gaming and basketball fans, enjoy! If not, the aftershow is very skippable!).

  • Anthony

    Anthony lives and plays games in Pittsburgh, PA. A lover of complex strategy, two player war games, and area control, Anthony is always eager to try a new game, even if he's on rule-reading duty.
