Interview with Shane Ivey, Dennis Detwiller, and Scott Glancy of Arc Dream Publishing

This year at GenCon we had the absolute pleasure of sitting down with the creators of one of our favorite games. We chatted with Shane Ivey, Dennis Detwiller, and Scott Glancy about Delta Green, the horrors of Frontier Airlines, get rich quick schemes, and the stories behind one of the best games available! 


GenCon 2019 Wrap Up

We harassed people on discord to chat with us about their time at GenCon and were generally pretty silly. We forgot to cover a bunch of cool things we did (some of which will show up as interviews later this week) and cool people we met, but I hope you enjoy hearing what we enjoyed!
 
Thanks to Tom and Kim for joining us!
 
(Please do let us know if you hated this so we can figure out if this is a thing worth doing more often)
