ENGN Preview Series 48: Hour of Need with The Sadlers and Dereck Rodriguez

Jason is happy to be joined by the host of Solo BG, Dereck Rodriguez, for a MEGA-length preview pod – our longest one! However, this episode is so much more than a preview.

Yes, we chat with Adam and Brady Sadler about the new KS project launching in November, Hour of Need – how it works, some design choices, and the fact that it is indeed different from the previous Modular Deck System games (think of the MDS like, say, the COIN system – very different games, even within the same system).

However, we talk about so much more. Adam and Brady reveal some of the inner workings at Blacklist Games, getting a small publisher started, and feeding the demands of the Kickstarter content beast. They also answer Jason’s critical questions about their previous two MDS games – Street Masters and Brook City.

Finally, all four of us share our Top Three Things in Comic Books – characters, storylines, team-ups, anything. We get into Marvel vs. DC, lots of different Robins, a commentary on the new Joker movie… the dork factor is really, really strong in this episode. We hope you have as much fun listening as we did recording!
