Special Interview — Shari Spiro

Where do I even start with reviewing all the awesome things Shari Spiro is involved with?

First, she is the founder of Ad Magic. They have printed many great board games including the upcoming Exploding Kittens and Cards Against Humanity. She also has helped Cards Against Humanity pull off some of their greatest coups like pwnmeal – the extreme gaming oatmeal? You might also recognize her from her time as a judge on Tabletop Deathmatch?

Recently, Ad Magic has expanded to game publishing with their new arm: Breaking Games. In their first stable of releases, they already have a Mensa Seal Select winner on their hands: Letter Tycoon! Not to mention kickstarter favorites: Billionaire Banshee and Funemployed (see also our interview with Anthony Conta).

As you can tell, this is a VERY interesting interview with lots of great stories! Trust me when I tell you, you don’t want to miss it!

Episode 152 – Tabletop News with Kenna and Rich!

This week, we stick to the basics: Tabletop News and Kickstarters! Of course, with a healthy dose of our Week in Geek. We wouldn’t leave you hanging on what we’ve been getting up to! We also interviewed Shari Spiro from Ad Magic / Breaking Games this week, but the interview was SO AWESOME that it ran too long. So keep an eye out for it to be released as a stand alone interview soon!

Episode 151: Chris Cieslik of Asmadi Games and Tabletop News

Hello all! This week we had the absolute pleasure of interviewing Chris Cieslik of Asmadi Games! Not only am I a big fan of Red7, I’ve also been wanting to ask how he created a game in ONE DAY (see: Meow). We also get the story behind how Asmadi ended up being the publisher of Penny Press after it won Deathmatch: Season One. And if you think that all sounds great – wait until you hear what Asmadi is bringing to GenCon!

All this and tabletop news – coming up!

Special Interview – Mike Selinker

Apocrypha Adventure Card GameThis week, GoingLast jumps on the amazingly successful Apocrypha bandwagon! We sit down with designer Mike Selinker and talk about his newest game and the process of bringing it from conception to Kickstarter. With a creepy pre-apocalyptic theme, memorable characters, and a host of fantastic authors and writers joining in, this is a game you won’t want to miss.

Session 150: Justin’s Back!! Let’s celebrate 150 sessions of Tabletop News!

This is our 150th Session!!! So we had to have one of the founders of GoingLast back on the show: Justin! And when you get two RPG heads on one show, what are they going to do? TALK RPGS! Rich and Justin get down and dirty with some fun comparisons between Pathfinder and Dungeons and Dragons. No animosity here! We all love both games! As always, we squeeze in some tabletop news and Kickstarters we think you should checkout.

Thank you so much for listening to us. We love doing this and hope that we are improving with every episode! If you have feedback, we’d love to hear it over on twitter (@goinglast) or through our Contact Us page!

Here’s looking forward to another 150 episodes of great minis, ridiculous kickstarter videos and new favorite games!

Session 149: Interview with Blackspot Games and Tabletop News

This week we sat down with Steve Ewoldt of Blackspot Games to discuss his Kickstarter 4 the Birds! You may remember Steve from his appearance on Session 130 or, more likely, on CaH’s Tabletop Deathmatch. Back then his bird shoving game was called What the Flock! It still has all the same humor and all the same surprising amount of strategy that it did before. But now it’s polished and ready for prime time!

As always, we also cover the latest in tabletop news and hot Kickstarters. And coming up next week is our big 150th session! What should we do to celebrate?? Let us know in the comments here, or tweet us @goinglast!

Special Tabletop News Interview – Phoenix: Dawn Command

This week we’ve got something a little extra for you, as we meet up with Keith Baker and Dan Garrison to chat about their new role-playing game Phoenix: Dawn Command. Both the unique themes and the mechanics have enthralled Kenna and I for months now and kept us involved as avid playtesters. And on April 6th, you will get the opportunity to support this amazing game as the Kickstarter goes live!

Listen in and get the scoop on this great new RPG! For the latest updates, check out Twogether Studios (@twogetherstudio). The kickstarter ends May 6, 2015.

UPDATE: Rich has also been creating great walkthough videos to give you a behind the scenes look at the game before it comes out. He provides breakdowns on the actual mechanics of the game to give you a feel of what makes Phoenix so unique!
